Feral Cat Day - 16th October




 Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs  are the only human ways to control cat  population .

  Cats are caught, taken to a veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, and vaccinated and eartipped (to sign that a cat has been  through the surgery).  Then the  cats  can go  back to their area .

   Did you know that the so called shelters kill 70 % of the trapped cats ? 

 I never support similar " animal welfare" groups .

 If you want to help with the TNR program in  Qatar then you will have all the information here . http://www.catsinqatar.com/CIQ/Feral_Cats.html

Museum of Islamic Art opening time changed


 Good to know  that from October  the MIA is open 7 days a week - until 7 pm !

We happened to visit it on a Tuesday -just to find it closed in summer .   My kids got exhausted  in the park and while  waiting for taxi  we found shelter from the heat at the Riwaq Hall  though it was officially closed as well .
