A poor little grey kitten was discovered in a heartbreaking situation – stuck in a sticky glue trap – in the area of Tampines.
A brief clip that captured the kitten’s distressing situation was only four seconds long, displaying the feline completely immobilized as it was drenched in sticky black adhesive.
A three-month-old kitten was saved by the SPCA and given medical attention by a veterinarian.
Chai stated that the little feline had been washed a total of three times, but it appeared as though it needed yet another bath, since its hair was still feeling tacky. Additionally, the kitten was receiving antibiotics and would be inoculated in the near future, before becoming available for adoption.
Chai mentioned that the SPCA is currently working towards helping the skinny dog gain some weight.
Discovered at Tampines wet market
According to Chai’s Facebook update, a cute little kitten was found at the Tampines Street 81 wet market.
The little feline had a tough time when it got trapped for seven long hours, but eventually, it was rescued. The trap, which was initially set to capture stray rats at the market, was the culprit.
According to Chai, the market regularly faces problems with rats. He even witnessed one running past as they were taking care of a kitten. For a long time, organizations such as Acres and SPCA have been advocating for a ban on glue traps. Although these traps are affordable and convenient for catching rats, many other animals also get trapped in them.
It’s not uncommon for a stray cat to become trapped on a glue trap. However, it’s important to note that these traps are inhumane and don’t address the root cause of the issue. Let others know about this by sharing the story with your friends.
