I read a beautiful telling of Smalley’s story.
This is the message I left for the author:
“Thank you for this moving rendition of Smalley’s story. You got it right on the kibble. It is amazing that someone halfway around the world from Singapore gets it so thoroughly with just a simple 6 page story, when we’re facing the gigantic wonder that the Singaporean authorities who have enforced the “no cats outside, no cats allowed inside laws” for decades fail consistently to connect the dots.
Thank you again for telling more people about our Smalleys. Thank you.”

Doesn’t that mean no cats anywhere?
The last time Beins were so stupid to try to eliminate cats from their lives, they suffered the terrible Bubonic Plague. Stupid Beins killed most of the cats, there were no cats to kill the rats that carried the fleas that carried the Plague, and up to a third of all Beins in Europe died as a result.
So Singapore wants to kill all the cats. Those who don’t know history suffer the repetition of it…
So we want to restate the story of Smalley as a warning of how cat-hate starts, knowing that you now know the consequences of that hate…
