Save the street cats! (Strip x Cat Welfare x Mimipong)

What's New Pussycat?

Singapore’s Ministry of waxing, Strip, has launched a new campaign that seeks to garner monetary assistance and attention for the poor abandon pussycats that roams the streets of Singapore. Mimipong was commissioned to create 8 different cat plush set from the “A street cat named Desire” series for each of the Strip outlets in Singapore.

A street cat named Desire

A street cat named Desire is a series of plush interpretations of stray cats, a common sight along the streets of Singapore. Tagged with the location from which they can be found, each plush is handmade to carefully replicate the unique markings of each individual cat. These sets are available for adoption at S$80 and part of the proceeds goes to the Cat Welfare Society to fund the sterilisation of strays. Each set consist of a Plush Cat, a pylon and a street sign.

You can also make a direct donation to the Cat Welfare Society , more information here.

Cherry and I have been exchanging emails since Mimiscellany, I love her emails and all the pictures she has been sending acoss. It reminds me of youthful yesterdays having a pen-pal…without being subjected to my terrible handwriting! I asked if I could post one of them lovely emails because I just can’t contain the cuteness of her, her cat, and apartment to myself. Also the romance of  discovering the everyday life in a far away land…all the way in Buenos Aires!

How was your new year party?
I went to a (friend’s)house outside the city, and was very fun! It is a hot summer and we swam in the pool a lot.
This is me, drinking a pineapple cocktail.

I love Kitsuné! so much. It’s very cute.
I have only one cat, Nyu! She does some cute things, like early in the morning when she plays with her plastic mouse…
I like the attitude of cats very much .
Her name is Nyu, because of a character of the anime called ” Elfen Lied” Have you seen it?


Diego(My boyfriend) and I are planning to visit Europe during May and June
His brother lives in Barcelona… We bought the flight tickets last week.
Do you go to vacations?
