...this old lady who hoards about 40 cats and 2 dogs in her 3 room HDB. The living condition is so terribly filthy and smelly that it's really not a place for animals to live, let alone human. ... The sight was just ghastly and the stench was unbearable. I was gagging even though I was wearing a mask. ... Inside, the place was like the House of Horror - dim and dark, blackened walls, filth and stench filled the place and encompasses you like a cocoon.
There were sick cats and kittens everywhere and they were all scared and hiding. The cats were all fed a diet of raw chicken heads ... left out for days, to the extend that chicken heads are blackened with decomposition.
When people try to remove her cats, she threatened to burn the place down, killing both herself and cats. So, we figure that brute force will not work. Just have to slowly try to clean up the place and do whatever we can for the sake of these poor animals.
The National Day mission : Jaime, her sis and Natasha bravely went in with gloves, masks and shower cap to clean up the place.
Recommended by Otterman: "These gals spent National Day in the house of horrors, cleaning the place and smuggled some cats out for a visit to the vet, and they're funding the operation themselves. Love their "can do" spirit; hats off to them!"

Elaine took this 'fairly' patriotic shot of a Singapore Flag hung outside an apartment. It shows one of the many uses of NTUC Fairprice plastic bags.
On closer look, notice that the flag has not only been nicely strung up, it has even been meticulously weighed down to prevent it from flapping in the wind...
And when you look even closer, the plastic bags holding the weights are NTUC. Not Cold Storage, Not Marketplace, Not Carrefour, But NTUC.
