Learning more about cats

Several cat-related services from making your home cat-friendly to teaching basic grooming will also be available to enrich the lives of feline friends.

Veterinarians from the Animal and Veterinary Service (AVS) will also host a "Chat with the Vet" session, where people can learn more about caring for a cat.

Adopt don't shop

Feline Fanciers Society of Singapore will be putting on a cat breed showcase and sharing session, where potential adopters can learn more about the different breeds of cats and find out which best suit them.

They can then head to the cat adoption drives by the Cat Welfare Society, Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), and Pure Adoptions to give a shelter furball a fur-ever home.

More details

Admission to the event is free.

While cat owners are allowed to bring their cats along, they are advised to keep them in carriers and on a cat harness or lead for added safety.
