'Tiger Show' by Cat Welfare Society!

The Cat Welfare Society will be hosting a week-long event from 21 - 28 February 2010 provocatively titled 'Tiger Show'.

The event, held in conjunction with the birth of the Year of the Tiger, welcomes the lunar new year in celebration of our humble Community Cats and aims to bring together people from all walks of life that have a passion for animal welfare, as well as a soft spot for our feline friends.

The CWS envisions this year to be one where
  1. sterilisation is fully supported by AVA and all Town Councils
  2. responsible cat owners show that cats should and must be allowed to be kept as pets in HDB flats
  3. there is less intolerance for community cats, hence less abuse

The line-up for this exciting week is as follows:

21 Feb (Sunday) 7.30pm - The Tiger Show Opens (by invitation only)
21 Feb to 28 Feb - Exhibition opens from 6pm-10pm from Tuesday to Friday and 12pm-10pm on Saturday and Sunday

Join us for the opening of our week-long feline-inspired Art Exhibition and Bazaar!

The show is a gathering of renowned cat artists like Paul Koh of Catmasutra, Ng Ling Tze of Sloth Studios, the team from Cats of the World as well as other local artists like multi-disciplinary visual artist,Tay Bee Aye and ceramist, Michelle Lim. Many feline-inspired collectibles will also be on sale at the show!

25 Feb (Thursday) 8.00pm - "I am Cat. Hear Me Roar"

An advocacy and mediation workshop for the welfare of cats.

Be part of an open and honest discussion with SPCA, Action for Singapore Dogs, Cat Welfare Society and guest panelist Mr Siew Kum Hong about where animal welfare, especially for domestic animals, stands in Singapore - our progress and our stumbling blocks, with insights into the role of new media in advancing our collective cause.

It's a party so let the fur fly. It's time to break out the alcohol and the party heels.

(Strictly humans tonight, please!)
