I am Against Eating Cats and Dogs!
Saya Menentang Makan Daging Kucing dan Anjing!
THE EATING OF CATS AND DOGS ANGER ANIMAL LOVERS OF MALAYSIA! Malaysians DO NOT consider Cats and Dogs as livestock. KILLING OF COMPANION ANIMALS for food is ABHORENT as DISEASES can spread and KILLING is done CRUELLY which violates the Animal Welfare Act 2015 and the PENALTY is RM25,000 to RM100,000. Taiwan is the only Asian country that outlaws the eating of cats and dogs. We, the undersigned, are concerned and urge the Malaysian Authorities and the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) to take action and Enact a law against the eating of Cats and Dogs! PENCINTA HAIWAN MALAYSIA KATAKAN TIDAK KEPADA MEMAKAN KUCING DAN ANJING! Warga Malaysia TIDAK menganggap kucing dan anjing sebagai haiwan ternakan. Pembunuhan haiwan kesayangan sebagai bahan makanan adalah menjijikkan kerana ia boleh menyebabkan penyebaran penyakit dan penyembelihan haiwan tersebut dilakukan secara yang kejam yang mana ia melanggar Akta Kebajikan Haiwan 2016 dan jumlah penalti adalah RM 25,000 ke RM 100,000. Taiwan adalah satu-satunya negara Asia yang mengharamkan pemakanan kucing dan anjing. Kami yang menanda-tangani petisyen ini amat mengambil berat dan ingin menggesa Jabatan Perkhidmatan Veterinari (DVS) untuk mengambil tindakan and untuk menggubalkan undang-undang yang mengharamkan pemakanan kucing dan anjing!

Vehicles to stop if they hit/ run over a cat!
It has recently come to my attention that more and more cats are being knocked down and being left for dead on the roadside. Within the last 6 month I have experienced 2 cats running out in front of my vehicle, luckily I was able to brake in time and not hit them. I have also whitnessed a cat being run over with my own eyes as I was driving down a country road late at night. The driver who hit this cat did not stop, however I did so, and found the cat had died suddenly from the impact of the hit. I was devastated that someone could be so inhumane and leave a poor innocent animal; someone's pet on the road for dead. I moved the animal out of the road and attempted to find the owner of the animal, I found that the cat did in fact belong to a farm owner, and they was devastated however so great-full that I had notified them on their pets death, as they would of been worried all night if their cat suddenly didn't return home and was missing. Another incident I have experienced was yesterday. My own cat (tigger) who I have only had a few months had been knocked down, and again left for dead by the person who had knocked him down. However someone like me who whitnessed the incident was good enough to stop and move him out of the road, and stay with him as he passed away. Tigger was such a jolly little thing with his own little character, he loved the outdoors however still being young wasnt aware of the dangers of roads. He was not a cat who you could keep inside, full of energy and always wanting to go out exploring. However this come with consequences and resulted in tigger being knocked down. The thing that devastated me the most was the person who knocked tigger down, not stopping to see if he was okay, he could of just been injured and need treatment which would of saved his life, also I was not notified straight away I had to find out myself through social media a day to late!!! If only someone would of notified me of this the same day I wouldn't of been searching frantically for tigger all day, and it would of put my mind at rest. I am aware of the law, and that you must stop and report an accident to the police if you hit any animal such as: dogs, horses, cattle, cows, pigs and goats. If furiates me that cats, the second most kept domestic animal is not on this list !! I can not come to terms with why this has not been changed. I believe if you hit any animal, you should stop and report this to your local police station, and animal welfare centre so they can act straight away, maybe save the animals life, and take the right action such as checking if the animal is chipped so that the owner can be notified straight away! It's just inhumane that such domestic animals are still being left for dead on the road side. In memory of Tigger I want change!! Even if this gets the message across to others that if you believe that you have hit a domestic animal (someones pet) the right thing , the humane thing to do would be to stop! 'The tigger law' in memory of This little fella x

Make it a legal requirement to report cat's that are injured or killed on the road
Hundred's of thousands of animals are injured or killed on the roads every year. Currently it is illegal to run over a dog or an animal that is considered livestock and not report it within 24 hours. Dogs are protected by the Road Traffic Act 1998 which requires drivers to stop and give their details to the owner or if that is not possible, report the incident to the police – but no such law exists in the UK for cats. Why not cats? Understandably cats are free-roaming creatures and accidents do happen but the majority of drivers hit-and-run leaving what is probably somebody’s much loved pet in or at the side of the road. Make it so cats have an equal status with dogs and owners are found so they can seek medical attention or in the worst case, lay their pet to rest! To some a cat is “just a cat” but to others this animal is a child’s best friend. A member of the family. The only companion of an elderly person. On Friday the 27th of January 2017, my beautiful 10 month old cat Simba was hit and killed by a driver who was speeding down a residential road where we live. The driver hit-and-run. I was very fortunate that some lovely lady picked him up and brought him back to us. My 5 year old son and I are absolutely devastated as this could have been easily avoided had the driver been driving carefully down a street where many kids play out! But to not even stop and deal with the repercussions of their actions is disgusting. Since this has happened I have been inundated with stories from cat owners that have had to deal with the same heartbreak as we have. We were lucky. We got Simba back. But many people have had their cats missing for weeks, months and years, not knowing what’s happened, just fears that they may have been killed and disappeared. This needs to stop. Please. Make it so we cat owners can be notified and have closure instead of councils disposing of them like they are nothing. Many cats are micro-chipped now and could easily be returned home. Since starting this petition I have found that someone back in 2015 had the same idea as I did and started a petition the same as this one. Her name was also Christina and she amazingly racked up over 113,000 signatures which shows it can be done! She was doing it for the attention of her local MP/council but hasn't pursued it any higher although I have seen she is doing a new petition to make all councils scan domestic animals. I want the attention from our Prime Minister and Parliament and I will not stop until we get what we want. For it to be the law to report every incident involving cats. This is for the good of our furry felines and their doting owners. I have called what I am doing “Justice for Simba” due to the bad experience I have had and in memory of him, but I undoubtedly want justice for all cats and their families. I have created a Facebook page which you can like, read the full story and follow updates on this petition. It’s www.facebook.com/justiceforsimba We also have Twitter: @justiceforsimba Thank you for your on-going support and please like and share so we can get the result we want. I’m relying on your signatures to do so!

Cats are family members , if you hit them then you should report it
For years people have got away with killing people's family pets , young or old a cat is part of someone's family, a small percentage stop to look for the injured cat and some leave the cat for dead , meanwhile a family is breaking down because there beloved pet is missing or hiding injured or dead because someone doesn't by law have to report it or they just don't give a damn about it, as a member of a site trying to find lost animals all I've seen is lots of RTA , I no you can't train a cat but the law can at least be changed so that if you hit a cat then it gets reported by a phone number or online form etc , family's nearby could the check online and see if anyone has hit a cat so at least they don't spend months wondering what has happened to there pet ,I also think all cats should be chipped by law to make it easier to indenitfy owners
Petition to Heather Morris
My loving family pet Milo was knocked down and killed on new years day the driver hit him and left him lying on road if they'd stopped he may have been able to get veterinary help n have a chance but obviously in today's so called caring community this driver didn't care they've ripped our family apart as Milo was huge part of it his brother is grieving which is hard to watch ,Milo was only year n half whole life ahead of him ,words cannot describe grief I feel,I want law to be changed to move with times road traffic act 1988 protects dogs cattle pigs etc but not cats who are UK's 2 Nd top pet,this is 2019 we need to move with time our laws are dated, 680 cats are killed daily on road,240000killed annually on UK roads yet we dismiss it n walk away that can't be right in today's society surely we are more caring than that ,Milos law would ensure a driver reports hitting cat as you would a dog I'm not looking for huge fines n jail sentences just acknowledgement for that animal if they stopped they might save lives if not then at least through reporting incident owner can be given closure and chance to say goodbyes surely that's not too much to ask, our nation spends a fortune on their pets does this not show that animals are big family members now,in some cases it might be someone's only companion,please help support Milos law it's small change to a dated law but would make a huge difference to thousands of pet owners

Cut the Price of Air Travel for Pets to the UK/Ireland within Europe
UK and Irish Airlines must fall in line with the rest of Europe allowing small pets to travel with their owner in the cabin rather than as cargo, thereby cutting the high costs of air travel for cats and dogs. Currently, there are *no* UK or Irish airlines that allow small dogs or cats to travel in the cabin of the plane (inside a pet carrier), which is something most other European countries´ airlines do allow. This is an affordable way to transport your pet compared to the astronomical cost of UK airlines and "pet reception" services. Ireland has it even worse because they need to fly to the UK first and then take a connecting flight from there. DEFRA needs to abolish its ridiculous insistence that animals have to travel as manifest cargo and making these "pet transport companies" compulsory. Pets weighing more than 8 kg should be allowed to travel with their owners as "special luggage" at similar prices as buggies, golf equipment, bicycles, etc. As an example, to fly one cat as cargo from Lanzarote to London costs around £600 (approx. €700), whereas taking a cat or small dog into the cabin with you to go from Lanzarote to Germany, Holland or Belgium will only incur the cost of extra hand luggage, charged per kilo (between £50 and £100, in the cabin or hold). The following are the results that these high prices (which can NOT be justified) that the UK/Ireland charges are causing: 1. A big increase in pets being abandoned because people cannot afford the cost to get their animal back to the UK/Ireland (especially during this time of economic crisis). We witness it all the time, people who leave the European country they have lived in to return to the UK/Ireland, simply "dumping" their animals on the street or with people whom they tell "it´s only for a short while, we´ll come back and pick up the cat/dog in a month or so" (of course they don´t come back), who then in turn tend to dump or neglect these animals. 2. The local charities who are already stretched to the limits cannot cope with the increased amount of abandoned animals. 3. Cats that are not feral to begin with who are abandoned can suffer and die from depression and do not fare well living on the streets, and dogs generally end up getting run over by a car. WHY do most other European airlines that operate in, for example, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain etc., allow small pets to travel inside the cabin, paid for as extra hand luggage, but UK and Irish airlines do not? Since there is no more quarantine these days and the PETS Scheme applies to the UK and Ireland as well, this is obviously not because of health and safety issues, but surely comes down only to money and greed and not the welfare of our pets. We also see many German, Dutch, Belgian, Spanish etc. tourists taking their small dogs (and sometimes cats) on holiday with them, because it is affordable and simple to do with their airlines. There is NO reason whatsoever why UK/Irish airlines cannot do the same. Pet Owners and Pet Lovers on the island of Lanzarote, the UK, Ireland and elsewhere in Europe demand that changes are made in the way that small pets are transported flying from other European countries to and from the UK and Ireland. This petition does not only stand for Lanzarote, but all other destinations in Europe from where you can not take your pet inside the cabin to fly to the UK and Ireland and have to pay ridiculous prices for pets travelling as cargo. **Haz clic aquí para la Traducción Español de esta solicitud **

Add a bittering agent to all antifreeze products to protect animals
Thousands of domestic, stray and wild animals are being killed from the toxic ingredients of antifreeze. To the animals, this is just water as they cannot smell or taste the difference. I myself have lost a cat to antifreeze and it is a horrible sight. They have to suffer in slot of pain before it kills them. I have also witnessed others who have lost pets in the same manner. Whilst it could be impossible to completely ban antifreeze, it is possible to add a bittering agent to put off animals to not drink it. Animals shouldn't have to suffer in so much pain because of this substance.

Include cats in the Road Traffic Act
According to statistics, nearly 1 in 2 UK households own a pet of some kind. Out of the 45% of the population who owns a pet, dogs make up 26% of that percentage, with cats taking second place with 18%. For those of us in that 45%, one of the worst things that can happen is to lose our furry friend unexpectedly, and especially to have something happen and never find out where they went, or what happened. Thankfully, for owners of certain animals, a person is legally required to report an accident that injures or kills any of the following: Dogs Cattle Goats Sheep Pigs Horses, mules and donkeys However, despite being the nations second most popular household pet, cats are not protected. Cats can be abandoned at the scene of an accident, with no repercussions for the driver. While no consequences are given to people who openly and honestly report the road death of any of the listed animals, reporting means that the owner can be informed and aren't left wondering and searching. On the 24th of September 2018, I was left wondering and searching. I found my 1 year old cat, Milk, who was barely more than a kitten, sitting on the side of the road cold and stiff. She had been hit earlier in the day and left there. Someone had taken her collar off to make her look like a stray. If I hadn't found her, she would have been collected and put in with other dead "strays", a reality which happens far too frequently. This little cat was a huge part of my life, and my family's life. She was beautiful and she was loved, but now she was gone, and had been left alone in the cold for me to find. That is an image that will stay with me for the rest of my life. This was not, and is not okay. No animal should be left like Milk was. Not a dog, not a cow, and not a cat. They are as important as any other animal, and the consequences should be exactly the same. Cats are loved, and cherished and part of our families, just like any other animal. If cats were added to Road Traffic Act, people who don't report can face the deserved consequences, and more cats would be reported. More families will not have to wonder and worry, and more people will not have to face finding them like that themselves. They deserve better. They deserve to be treated like any other animal.
