For UP NISMED cats, your help could spell the difference between life and death.

We are urging the public, especially the whole UP Diliman Community, to SIGN the appeal for UP Diliman Chancellor Michael Tan and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Community Affairs to LET THE CATS STAY IN NISMED.

The Utak and Pusa page has recently received a request from Friends of Campus Animals (FOCA) to help the cats from the said building which will be rounded up as per the request of the NISMED administration. The cats, some of which are already spayed and neutered, will probably be sent to Payatas where they could be killed.

In the letter of request to "totally eradicate" them, the cats were reported to leave their poo in the dining hall and lick the plates of the customers.

However, these incidents can still be prevented with proper coordination from the personnel.


1 -- To keep the cats away from the hotel or restaurant, a simple spray bottle will do. It worked in the UP College of Mass Communication canteen. As soon as a cat approaches the canteen or a table, he is sprayed at his rear end with water in a water bottle. It's very effective. The cats then learn to avoid the place.

2 -- But management should put up a DON'T FEED THE CATS sign and strictly enforce it. Cats go there because people feed them. If the feedinig stops, then they will not frequent the place.

3 -- Feeding should be done in a spot far from the canteen at the same time everyday so the cats will learn to go to the feeding spot and NOT to the canteen.

Let us respect the lives of these cats. HELP them. SAVE them. SPARE them.

Please sign this petition.
