A vet clinic in Singapore has created novel improvements to its resident cat’s cardboard homes. Mount Pleasant Vet Centre in Changi takes care of several lost injured or sick animals while it tries to find them good homes, but in 2011 it adopted Tisoy as a permanent resident. Tisoy started off life sleeping on soft beds and towels, but he had a habit of kicking them into his litter box. To stop this messy practice, Tisoy was then given a cardboard box to sleep in and contain his bedding. Tisoy settled into the box quickly and comfortably, so it was then that vet techs Dorothy Tsang and Gillian Koh decided to take things up a notch. With Dorothy as chief architect and Gillian as creative director, the pair started to come up with innovative designs for new cardboard homes for Tisoy to rest in. Dorothy and Gillian’s brilliant work also includes a Chinese temple, Christmas loghouse and even a vet clinic based on the Changi practice – and they’re a labour of love for the pair. “We enjoy making the homes – Tisoy loves them and our patients love them,” Dorothy told the Press Association. “Making the homes helps us de-stress and relax, and the homes have a similar effect on Tisoy.” “Depending on how intricate the house is, it can take a few hours to a few days to complete as we only work on the houses during our break times and after work,” said Gillian. “The igloo may look simple but it’s actually more difficult to build because of the sloping angles of each cut-out piece,” added Dorothy.
