Dawn Kua (CWSS) steps down

Category : meow

After "overstaying" 5 and a half years, a two year notification to the committee and lots of hints to blog readers in the past year, Dawn Kua has announced that she will back to being an (extra!-) ordinary member of the Cat Welfare Society of Singapore in 2008. Read her post.

She has been one of the caretakers of Singapore's soul all this while and I wish her well on her next journey. I will admit to having been prepared for this eventuality. The hints helped!

Her blog, Working with the Cat Welfare Society, is a personal blog that was prolifically maintained from Mar 2005 - Dec 2007. I once proposed a day-long blogging competition with her but gave up in the first hour! Some time ago, her charity was chosen by readers to receive's ad revenue and that was certainly an appropriate choice for the meta-blog! Recently I highlighted one sequence of events (which I need to update) that reflected the sort of tenacity and problem-solving effort required in some cases - see "Why Dawn rules."

Her blog content will still be available on the net. Since she is no longer working with CWSS, it will not be updated in 2008. The archived content will be a resource for various issues (e.g. TRNM, mediation). And it will stand as a testament to the stamina, strategy and graciousness of a very special lady.
