URGENT Celia Hammond petition to protect cats
« Reply #7 on: October 01, 2007, 14:32:56 PM »
This is an urgent one – please sign the petition against the persecution of cats on the London Olympic site. 



http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/2012-olympic-site-cats-at-risk-of-starvation-and-death


 Some of you may not be aware of the enormous opposition Celia Hammond is facing from the authorities on the Olympic site. You can all help her by signing the petition, she desperately needs as many signatures as possible. The story is this:  A very long time ago when it was learned that the site at Stratford, East London,was to be developed for the Olympics, Celia quickly  realised that such sites would be teeming with homeless cats. She contacted them re trapping the cats before work actually commenced, but they assured her there were no ( or hardly any cats)  there, and they  were handling it themselves. She was not convinced, but could not act without their permission.  A couple of months ago she received a phone call from them one Tuesday, acknowledging that there were indeed a number of cats there, and was told that demolition work would commence the next day. If she wished to  rescue the cats it would have to be that very night.  Of course, this was an impossibility. Trapping cats, just a couple, can take many nights of patient waiting,observing and leaving out food to tempt them.  She went that night, and was horrified to learn of the enormity of the problem, she quickly assessed there were many hundreds there. Consequently she asked for an extension of time, which was granted for just a couple of weeks, but much time had to be spent doing a safety course...not just Celia but a number of  helpers.

 Celia has spent every night out trapping, getting to bed towards 6 a.m every night (morning!!) and she is  completely exhausted. To date she has rescued over 150, many of them now at the Canning Town centre where  I am a volunteer. Mothers and little kittens. Cats and kittens coming out of our ears, one could say.  But the blow delivered to Celia is that she is now forbidden to enter the site any more, and that the  remaining hundreds of cats will have to face a terrible death. Celia needs as many people as possible to sign a petition that she can continue her good work till all cats are safe. So, please, please spare just a couple of minutes to sign her petition...a modest 1000 signatures is what  she wants...but more than that would be even better. A  letter to Ken Livingston, or whoever else might be of  influence, would also be an enormous help.Tell all  your friends and family...time is of the essence.
 
 Go to www.celiahammond.org   and click on to the petition.

 Thanks very much to every person who does this.

We have this petition running on two threads and I signed it when it first appeared on Purrs.

Please sign it cos there is no reason why these cats cannot be saved.

2012 Olympic Site Stray And Feral Cats At Risk Of Starvation And Death,
« Reply #1 on: September 30, 2007, 22:55:01 PM »
The Celia Hammond Animal Trust have been banned from entering the major part of the 800 acres that is to be the venue for the 2012 Olympic Games.

On site there are many stray domestic and feral cats trying to survive in what is a very dangerous demolition site. The picture above shows eight of the 147 cats the Trust rescued from the site before the ban was imposed.

Please help us get the ban lifted by signing our petition, for every day that passes more cats may die, being crushed in demolished buildings or from starvation, there is no escape for them as a huge wall now engulfs the site and the cats are trapped inside. To sign the petition go to

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/2012-olympic-site-cats-at-risk-of-starvation-and-death


We also urge cat lovers to email the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) direct asking them to lift the ban and allow the Trust back on site to continue the rescue project.

Thank You.
