Cat needs new home after S’pore owner who lived alone dies from cancer

Cat seeking forever home after owner passes away from cancer

An adorable tabby cat in Singapore is in need of a new home after her owner died from cancer.

Simply named, well, “Tabby”, she is an adorable young female with huge round eyes and a bit of a “diva attitude”.

If you’ve been thinking of adopting a furkid, this might be your sign.

Cats need new home in Singapore

According to a post in the ‘Sayang Our Singapore’s Community Cats’ Facebook group, Tabby’s owner, Uncle Ahmat, sadly succumbed to colon cancer on 25 April.

Besides Tabby, Uncle Ahmat also had three other cats, all of whom have since been adopted.

The OP described Tabby as “a young and pretty-faced cat with super big round eyes”.

She also has a “diva attitude” and needs more time to warm up to people.

While she might go up to you and rub against you, she doesn’t like having her back touched.

A touching story of redemption & love for cats

Sharing more about Uncle Ahmat’s inspiring story, the OP said he was an ex-offender in his younger days.

He spent many years behind bars for drug use but later turned his life around.

Sadly, he became estranged from most of his relatives.

The OP claimed that the day after his funeral, they went into his home and removed many of Uncle Ahmat’s possessions.

They also threw the cats out of the house, leaving them helpless and homeless.

Still, his consideration and thoughtfulness, especially when it came to his cats, was a surefire sign of his good heart.

Uncle Ahmat made sure his home was safe for them.

He also once declared:

I can go hungry, but my cats cannot go hungry. They only have me.

These were just two of his many positive qualities the OP listed in the post.

In January this year, the OP took a video of Uncle Ahmat playing with his beloved cats, which she included in the post.

He had asked permission from his doctor to return home from the hospital for one day just so he could pet his furkids.

If you have room in your home and your heart for a new family member, you may contact the OP directly via Facebook.

Hopefully, Tabby finds a family who dotes on her just as much as Uncle Ahmat did.
