IPOH – A case of a person bitten by a cat was reported in Kampung Mentari, Kuala Sepetang, Taiping, yesterday.

Perak Department of Veterinary Services  (DVS) director Dr Fuziah Muhayat said the victim was a 41-year-old woman who was also the owner of the cat.

She said the woman sought treatment at the Kuala Sepetang Health Centre.

“Clinical checks found no rabies symptoms in the pet. However, the cat will be monitored for 14 days,” she said in a statement here today.

The DVS yesterday reported that a dog was found to be rabies-infected in Kuala Sepetang on July 15.

The dog had bitten two children in the area on July 4, and they were given outpatient treatment whereby they were given the first dose of rabies vaccination and allowed to go home.

The Perak Health Department, through the Larut Matang and Selama District Health Office, is taking control and preventive measures, including identifying dog-bite cases in the area, for treatment and monitoring.

No positive cases of rabies have been reported among humans in Perak so far. – BERNAMA

 

A cat has miraculously survived after being trapped in a car at an airport for 11 days.

Shocked holidaymakers returned to find Willow the cat inside their car parked at Terminal 1 in Manchester without any food or water.

Police said the cat ‘didn’t look well at all’ and was taken by airport staff to Woodcroft Vets in Cheadle for treatment, the Manchester Evening News reports .

Willow had been reported missing several days earlier by her owners in Chorley after she apparently sneaked into the car as the jet-setters, also from Chorley, were packing.

A spokesperson from GMP Manchester Airport said: “Other than dehydration she was remarkably in good health.

“She was fortunately electronically tagged and staff were able to speak to the owner in Chorley after she was traced.

“The owner had reported her cat lost and was understandably very emotional and thankful she had been found.

“It appears she sneaked into the car when the holiday makers also from Chorley were loading their car.

“Willow is doing very well and was eating and drinking at the surgery later.” – mirror.co.uk

THIS is the hilarious moment an adorable cat appears to plead “no more” to her owners as she gets a bath.

The mucky moggy can be seen drenched as she gets treated to a very soapy wash.

But she can be heard loudly complaining to her owners, who believe they were being told “no more” repeatedly and uploaded the footage onto YouTube.

One of her owners can be heard in the background asking the cute cat “no more?” and she appears to agree.

The cat’s other owner can then be heard saying “almost done, just a little bit more”, before the soggy feline once again begs “no more” and the owners giggle. – Daily Mirror

GEORGETOWN – Using Ramadan as a platform to get the society to do good by giving alms, an animal lover organised a programme called “#ProjekKucingGelandangan” (#HomelessCatProject) to get the society to contribute to feed stray cats.

Zeti Norin Omar, 32, said she started the project on the first day of Ramadan, being it the month of mercy and generosity.

“During the non-fasting month, many people feed these stray cats, especially at food courts, but in Ramadan, there is no food during the day for these cats.

“So, we encourage the people to sponsor a bag of food for RM50, which I will distribute to ‘feeders’ who will then feed the cats,” she told Bernama here.

Zeti Norin said she had so far raised funds for 15 packets of cat food under the programme.

Her ‘feeders’ under the programme are at Bayan Baru, Relau, Balik Pulau, Batu Maung, Air Itam and Jelutong.

Their job is to feed the stray cats at least twice daily, she added.

Zeti Norin said those keen to become a feeder or contribute to the project could obtain further information at the Facebook account of Zetty Petzilla Cat KuchentaCattery.

Meanwhile, a feeder, Surena Md Daud, 43, said she was used to being called names, like “mak kucing”, “gila kucing” and “meow meow”, because of her love for cats.

Surena, who has a 14-year-old son, said she started becoming a cat feeder 10 years ago.

She said she prepared two to three kilogrammes of raw fish daily to be fed to stray cats at the Sri Aman Complex, Relau near here.

“I set aside about RM500 a month to buy fish and ‘whiskas’ (cat food) for stray cats,” she added. – BERNAMA

A Russian writer has been criticised after her kitten reportedly died of toxic blood poisoning just months after it was painted shocking pink for a party.

The kitten allegedly ingested too much of the colour and died from toxic blood poisoning a few months later, vets said.
According to local media the pink colour had poisoned the young cat after she had made it the main attraction at a pretty in pink party last September in which all of the guests had to wear pink.

But Ms Lenina claimed on Instagram that it was a hairdresser who painted the kitten and said the cat was happy and healthy when she gave it to a new owner shortly after the party.

The 35-year-old said that she had been told by a vet that it was beneficial and added that the paint was harmless to animals.

She said: ‘The pink colour was especially chosen for its healing properties and also strengthens the cat’s hair.
‘A vet told me it was a beneficial addition.’

Ms Lenina, who is also an actress and model, posted a YouTube video on her Twitter page showing off the cat after the event.

Alongside the clip she wrote: ‘Friends, look at the pink kitty.’

Among those who criticised her was artist Yuri Kuklachev who described the stunt as pointless and unnecessarily cruel.

There is also an online petition, which gathered several thousand signatures, demanding that local police investigate. – dailymail.co.uk

SIBU – A cat found hanged high up on a pole in front of a house here has stunned neighbours and animal lovers in Jalan Lada here.

In what appears to be a warning to the occupants of the house, the black feline had its neck tied with a rope and was hoisted to the top of a nine-metre pole and left to die there.

It is learned that the 38-year-old house owner had left for Kuching at the end of last month after he was intimidated by certain people over a business deal. His house has since been left vacant.

Yesterday, he came home and saw the cat hanging from the pole which was used to hang long firecrackers.

Seeing this, he remained inside the house.

Previously, he had lodged a police report about the intimidation which led to the arrest of four men under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder.

The men are now in remand.

A team led by district police chief ACP Mohd Kamal Kordi subsequently came to investigate yesterday.

Sarawak Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals condemned the cruel act, saying it was heinous for someone to do that.

“We hope that the person caught doing it will face the full brunt of the law,” society chairman Dona Wee said.

“It is a terrible act against humanity.”

She recalled that three years ago, a man was sentenced to one month’s jail for killing five puppies. – The Star
