THE (MISSING) CATS OF BGC
One example of this concept that most people are familiar with is the Cats of BGC, who were in the spotlight for months from February to September.
A quick refresher for those who may not know or remember the nitty gritty details: The cats around the BGC residential areas were rounded up by a pest control company hired by the Shangri-la at the Fort management. The pest control company was clearly not trained for safe animal handling.
That was in February of 2018. Fast forward a few months to September and the cats of BGC were again under threat of being forcefully relocated. If it wasn’t for Care and Responsibility for Animals (CARA) Welfare Philippines, Cats of BGC, and cat people from around the metro, the cats’ disappearance would have gone unnoticed -- and more cats would have been rounded up and disposed of.
