Cats Musical Singapore – Stellar UK Cast Now At Marina Bay Sands | AspirantSG

Cats Musical is coming back to Singapore again after these adorable felines last sightings in 2015. Following its triumphant season in London’s West End, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical CATS comes to the Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands for a strictly limited season from 17 December 2020. Tickets to Cats Musical Singapore are now on sale via Marina Bay Sands ticketing and SISTIC.

Cats Musical Singapore – What’s The Story?

Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set amongst a larger-than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favourite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks. 

The Jellicle Cats come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball. One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.


Cats Musical Singapore – An Award-winning Production

CATS, one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances. The ground-breaking production was the winner of the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Musical. In 1983 the Broadway production became the recipient of seven Tony awards including Best Musical, and ran for 18 years.

Since its world premiere, CATS has been presented in over 30 countries, has been translated into 15 languages and has been seen by more than 81 million people worldwide. Both the original London and Broadway cast recordings won Grammy Awards for Best Cast Album. 

The magnificent musical score composed by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, includes the poignant hit song ‘Memory’, which has been recorded by over 150 artists from Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis to Liberace and Barry Manilow.

Cats Musical Singapore – Why You Should Watch It

CATS is quite simply a phenomenon. Featuring a fantastical oversized set, a superb score, inspired choreography and mischievous costumes, CATS is a brilliant song and dance spectacular not to be missed. 

We are not exactly sure if we got the observation right but they seem to have insert quite a number of interactive opportunities for audiences to get upclose and personal with the performers before and during the performance compared to the last time they were here in 2015. We also appreciated the stellar vocals of the UK cast this time round. This is a must-watch if you have never watched Cats Musical before and if worth a re-watch if you have yet to experience performance by the US or UK cast.

Musical review: Not enough meat in the high-energy, visually spectacular Cats, Entertainment News & Top Stories

As one of the longest-running Broadway musicals, Cats has lived many lives since it was first performed more than three decades ago.

But while it is effective as a song-and-dance spectacular with an imaginative set and amazing make-up, costumes and choreography, it failed to connect with me the way many other musicals have.

Cats was last performed here in 2009 and is back for a four-week run at MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.

Tuesday’s gala night saw a 53-strong cast and crew from Britain, including a live band, performing English composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical score, which ranges from peppy toe-tapping numbers such as Jellicle Songs For Jellicle Cats to the mournful ballad which became a 1981 pop hit, Memory.

Based on T.S. Eliot’s collection of poems Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats (1939), the musical revolves around a group of felines gathered at a rubbish dump – that comes complete with oversized tennis racquets, tyres and refrigerators – for their annual Jellicle Ball.

The cats – outfitted in colourful wigs and sleek unitards – tell the stories of their lives. The tales are engaging, but some are better executed than others.

From Act 1, characters to look out for include the very boisterous and libidinous tomcat Rum Tum Tugger (played by Earl Gregory), whose hip-shaking moves left females – onstage and in the audience – purring with delight.

Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer (played by Brent Osborne and Dominique Hamilton respectively), a pair of cat burglars who love wreaking havoc, also thrill with their acrobatic performances.

But the first half of this three-hour-long musical is marred by weak moments such as an amateur tap dance sequence between the indolent fat cat Jennyanydots and a bunch of strange-looking mice and cockroaches, as well as a Jellicle ball dance routine towards the end that looks too much like the opening sequence and goes on for way too long.

The truth is that there is no gripping storyline to this musical and neither is there character development.

Unlike more recent hit musicals Matilda and Wicked, whose layered characters and emotive songs tug at heartstrings, Cats is just a celebration of cats – what you know them to be like and what they get up to. Perhaps as a result of this, there is little depth to the characters.

Perhaps the only moving part of the musical is when Grizabella (Erin Cornell), a faded glamourpuss, sings Memory. The song is poignant, but alas, too little is known of the character for me to feel deeply for her plight.

I appreciated that the cats tried to play with the audience, breaking down the barriers between audience and stage. They sprang up on empty seats, stared down at the humans and prowled up and down the aisles.

Act 2 was buoyed by visually captivating sequences and strong performances by Angela Kilian as narrating cat Jellylorum and the sensual Griddlebone, Christopher Favaloro as magician cat Mr Mistoffelees and Jarryd Nurden as the smart railway cat Skimbleshanks.

Their energetic moves onstage were complemented by a good use of set, props and special effects.

During Skimbleshanks’ performance, for example, a locomotive train is formed out of objects in the rubbish dump, complete with smoke and lighting.

Overall, the cast executed Jo-Anne Robinson’s choreography faultlessly, prancing and leaping about the set with abandon, and aptly portraying the playfulness and skittishness of felines.

But I wish I could have identified more with them. Perhaps what is needed is updated dialogue and song lyrics that strike a deeper chord, so that we can look upon these cats and ponder a little more about who we are and the lives we have led.

Limited Run Until 5 January

If you know and love CATS, then this is a performance you won’t want to miss! Read on for our CATS review…

The new movie version of the classic musical CATS has been, um, polarizing audiences around the globe, but the stage version is a tried and true classic. And it’s playing for a limited engagement at Marina Bay Sands this holiday season! Featuring the UK cast, this high-energy musical showcases spectacular choreography and dancing, emotional performances (Grizabella singing ‘Memory’ – sob!), and a live orchestra. Consider yourselves warned, mamas: the committed cast of CATS breaks the fourth wall and prowls the aisles, unnervingly staring down the humans in the audience, and occasionally even dancing with them!

If you haven’t seen CATS before, know that it doesn’t have a typical three-act narrative arc. The Jellicle cats have gathered for their annual ball, and one of them will be chosen to go to the Heaviside Layer and be “reborn” into a new Jellicle life. There is a brief threat from the wicked and mysterious Macavity before the oldest and wisest cat, Old Deuteronomy, selects the cat who will ascend to The Heaviside Layer. But the story is not really why we’re here; it’s the memorable music, the bizarre sight of the lycra-clad cats, and the stunning dancing.

A comical acrobatic number featuring cat-burglars Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer

We meet many of the cats through song and dance — some of the more memorable ones are Rum Tum Tugger with his Mick Jagger hips; Jennyanydots, who performs an energetic tap number with a troupe of dancing bugs; and the impressive and magical Mister Mistoffelees, whose dancing elicited gasps from our audience.

CATS is certainly appropriate for kids (there were many – probably as young as 5 – in attendance when we watched) although it’s quite loud in parts, and the cats can be a little intimidating as they roam the audience. Content-wise, there’s just some subtle innuendo from the aforementioned Rum Tum Tugger. If you are attending with kids, make sure to grab a booster seat on your way into the theatre.

All in all it’s great fun, and you’ll learn the correct way to address a cat (you should bow and say, ‘Ohhh Cat’). You may even learn what a Jellicle cat is, and does (although I’m still a little fuzzy on this). If you can put aside the need for a story, CATS is a joyful, crazy, energetic show, well worth catching during its limited engagement in Singapore.

Theatre Review: Cats The Musical At Marina Bay Sands Is Better Than The Movie

PUBLISHED December 30th, 2019 04:22 pm | UPDATED January 21st, 2020 06:25 pm

Amidst the mostly negative clamour on social media about Tom Hooper’s recent film adaptation of CATS, there’s now a reason not to give in to lacklustre sentiments. Yes, we’re talking about the revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record breaking 1980 Olivier award-nominated musical, which returned to Singapore just a week before the movie arrived in cinema screens here.

Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, CATS is one of those musicals that barely has a plot at all. On one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life — and that’s pretty much it.

For its lack of a discernible plot, what makes CATS so special runs the gamut from Webber’s iconic music to the lifelike costumes and brilliant casting. So brilliant, that CATS is now one of the longest-running shows in West End and on Broadway, winning seven Tony awards and performed in over 30 countries.

The Singapore tour of CATS is presented in Singapore by Base Entertainment Asia and David Ian Productions, and features much of the original creative team. Resident director Dane Quixall does a fantastic job, and for the entirety of the two hours, we are treated to a lot of scissor jumps and backflips (courtesy of choreographer Gillian Lynne) in lycra body suits, and returned home humming the tune to Mr. Mistoffelees. There are a lot of tails and whiskers whipping about and quite a bit of hissing, but compared to the unnerving (we believe the terms “creepy” and “nightmare fuel” were used) digital effects in the 2019 film adaptation, this version is a tad more cuddly and family-friendly.

And the music! The original London and Broadway cast recordings may have won Grammy Awards for Best Cast Album, but we’re plenty satisfied with what we’re hearing. World-renowned theatre star Joanna Ampil (who played Fantine in Les Misérables in London and performed in West End musicals like Miss Saigon and Avenue Q) reprises her role as Grizabella, the old decrepit Glamour Cat who’s now ostracised by the Jellicles after leaving the tribe a long time ago.

It’s a tough job to fill, because CATS is a show with all chorus and barely a lead, not to mention her 11 o’clock song Memory has been covered by the likes of Celine Dion and Barbra Streisand. Ampil is on stage for no longer than 15 minutes in the entire show, but her performance carries a weight deserving of her character. Still, there are others to mention. Christopher Favaloro, the dancer who plays the magician, Mr Mistoffelees, is very good, as is Skimbleshanks, the fabulous Railway Cat.


If there’s one thing we have to gripe about, it’s the particularly dim lighting through the entirety of the first act, purportedly because much of the show is set in an old junkyard in London. Still, we’re actually smiling in the darkness. CATS is pretty much a period piece, which is part of its charm and also its peculiarity.

The set, a modification of John Napier’s original design, is also incredibly complex, with multiple built-in entrance and exits, as well as numerous platforms (we all know how cats love climbing about) for actors to move around. A huge moon is projected onto the back of the stage, but the most impressive is the ‘heavenly hand’ that lifts Grizabella upwards and offstage to the Heaviside Layer.

One thing to note is that CATS is a sung-through musical, which means the only dialogue you hear are lines from Eliot’s poems. If you can get through the lack of a plot and a lot of confusion, this is a phenomenon worth shelling out money for: mischievous costumes, a fantastical set, magnificent score, and all.

CATS The Musical runs from now to 5 January 2020 at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. Tickets are priced from S$50, available here or on SISTIC.

90,000 The Singapore cat is a very curious and intelligent breed. Description, photos and reviews of the singapore breed.

The Singapore cat is one of the smallest aboriginal cat breeds in the world. An adult usually weighs about 2-3 kg. It is quite difficult to trace the history of these animals, since they originated from street cats living in Singapore. Accordingly, they may be hundreds of years old, and it is completely unknown how they got to Asia, from whom they originated and with whom they mated for centuries.

However, one thing can be said for sure – today only one possible color of these cats is officially recognized throughout the world. Although, it is known for certain that in their homeland Singapore cats can have a variety of shades and combinations.

Their golden cream color is called sepia agouti and is truly adorable. The first who consciously decided to start breeding this breed are Tommy and Hal Meadow. They brought several individuals from southeast Asia around the early seventies.Somewhat later, in 1980, the cats attracted the attention of Barbara Gilbertson, a well-known breeder at that time.

She brought two more of these animals from Singapore with a brown tick, and she did not stop there, gradually increasing the number of individuals in her nursery over the following years. Barbara, like the first two felinologists, experimented by crossing the Singapore cats with Burmese, Siamese, Abyssinian and blue breeds. This bore fruit, and in 1987 the breed was first seen by cat lovers at an exhibition in Belgium.Today, crossbreeding with other breeds is strictly prohibited.

The first official recognition came in 1979 from the TICA Federation of Felinologists, and in 1982 the breed was recognized by the American Felinological Federation CFA. Further, the Singapura breed was recognized by the international felinological federation WCF.

But the FIFe federation refuses to recognize this breed, despite the fact that in 1991 the Singapore authorities granted it the status of a national treasure.

Singapore cat or Singapore: photo, content, character

Singapore cat, or as they call it – Singapore (eng.Singapura cat) is a miniature, small breed of domestic cats, popular for large eyes and ears, coat color, ticking and active, attached to people, character.

Breed history

This breed was named after the Malaysian word, the name of the Republic of Singapore, meaning “lion city”. Perhaps that is why they are called little lions. Located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, Singapore is a city-country, the smallest country in Southeast Asia.

Since this city is also the largest port, it is inhabited by cats and cats from all over the world, which are brought by sailors.

These are the docks where small, brown cats lived, where they fought for a piece of fish, and later became a famous breed. They were even contemptuously called “sewage cats”, as they often lived in storm drains.

Singapore was considered harmful and even fought with them until the American discovered the breed and introduced it to the world. And, as soon as it happens, they are gaining popularity in America, and immediately became the official symbol of the city.

The popularity attracted tourists, and the cats were even erected two statues on the Singapore River, in the place where, according to legend, they appeared.Interestingly, the cats used as models for the statues were imported from the United States.

These former garbage cats, came to the attention of American cat lovers in 1975. Tommy Meadow, a former CFF judge and breeders of Abyssinian and Burmese cats, was living in Singapore at the time.

In 1975, he returned to the United States with three cats, which he found on the streets of the city. They became the founders of a new breed. The fourth cat was received from Singapore in 1980 and also participated in the development.

Other kennels were also involved in breeding and in 1982 the breed was registered in the CFA. In 1984, Tommy formed the United Singapura Society (USS) to unite breeders. In 1988, CFA, the largest organization of cat lovers, gives the breed champion status.

Tommy writes a standard for catteries, in which he rejects unwanted single-color coloration, and sets a waiting list for those who wish, since the number of kittens is less than the demand.

As often happens in a small group of people who are passionate about something, disagreements divide and in the mid-80s, USS disintegrates.Most members are concerned that the breed has a small gene pool and size, as the kittens are descended from four animals.

The outgoing members organize the International Singapura Alliance (ISA), one of the main goals of which is to convince the CFA to allow registration of other cats from Singapore in order to expand the gene pool and avoid inbreeding.

But, a hot scandal broke out in 1987 when breeder Jerry Meyers went to get the cats. With the help of the Singapore Cat Club, he brought a dozen and news: when Tommy Meadow came to Singapore in 1974, he already had 3 cats.

It turns out that he had them long before the trip, and the whole breed is a hoax?

Investigation organized by the CFA found that these cats were picked up in 1971 by a friend who works in Singapore and sent as a gift. The documents provided convinced the commission, and no court action was taken.

Most of the cattery were satisfied with the result, after all, what difference did it make to the cats in 1971 or 1975? However, she was often not satisfied with the explanation, and some believe that these three cats are in fact a revenge Abyssinian and Burmese breed, bred in Texas and imported into Singapore as part of a fraudulent scheme.

Despite the contradictions between people, the Singapura breed remains a wonderful animal. Today it is still a rare species, according to CFA statistics from 2012, it is ranked 25th in terms of quantity among permitted breeds, and there are 42 of them.


Singapore is a small cat with big eyes and ears. The body is compact but strong. The feet are heavy and muscular, ending in a small, hard pad. The tail is short, reaches the middle of the body when the cat is lying down and ends with a blunt tip.

Adult cats weigh from 2.5 to 3.4 kg, and cats from 2 to 2.5 kg.

The ears are large, slightly pointed, wide, the upper part of the ear falls at a slight angle to the head. The eyes are large, almond-shaped, not protruding, not sunken.

Acceptable eye colors are yellow and green.

The coat is very short, with a silky texture, close to the body. Only one color is allowed – sepia, and only one color – tabby.

Each hair must have a tick – at least two dark stripes separated by a light one.The first dark stripe goes closer to the skin, the second at the tip of the hair.


One look into those green eyes and you are conquered, the lovers of these cats say. They get along with other cats and friendly dogs, but their favorites are people. And the owners answer them with the same love, who keep these small mouse exterminators agree that cats are smart, lively, curious and open-minded.

Singaporeans are attached to one or more family members, but do not be afraid of guests either.

Breeders call them anti-Persians because of their speed of paws and intelligence.Like most active cats, they love attention and play, and demonstrate the confidence you would expect from a lion rather than the smallest of the domestic cats.

They want to be everywhere, open the closet and she will climb into it to check the contents. It doesn’t matter if you are in the shower or watching TV, she will be there.

And no matter how old the cat is, she always loves to play. They also easily learn new tricks, or come up with ways to get into an inaccessible place. They quickly understand the difference between the words: infection, lunch and go to the vet.

They love to watch the actions in the house, and from somewhere from the highest point. They are unaffected by the laws of gravity and climb to the top of the refrigerator like little, fluffy acrobats.

Small and thin in appearance, they are stronger than they seem. Unlike many active breeds, Singapore cats will want to lie down and purr in your lap after rodeo around the house.

As soon as the loved one sits down, they leave activity and climb into his lap.Singaporeans don’t like loud noise and are not the best choice for families with small children. However, a lot depends on the cat and the family itself. So, some of them easily find a common language with strangers, while others are hiding.

But, these are cats that are very attached to people, and you need to plan time during the day to communicate with them. If you work all day and then hang out in the club all night, this breed is not for you. The cat companion can fix the situation so that they do not get bored in your absence, but then your poor apartment.

Do you want to buy a kitten?

Remember that these are purebred cats and they are more whimsical than ordinary cats. If you do not want to buy a Singaporean cat and then go to the veterinarians, then contact experienced breeders in good catteries. There will be a higher price, but the kitten will be litter trained and vaccinated.

Health and Care

This breed is still rare, and you will have to look for them on sale, as most kennels have a waiting list or queue. Since the gene pool is still small, inbreeding is a serious problem.

Close relatives are crossed too often, which leads to a weakening of the breed and an increase in problems with genetic diseases and infertility.

Some hobbyists argue that the gene pool was closed too early for the introduction of new blood and insist that more of these cats be imported. They say that small size and a small number of kittens in a litter is a sign of degeneration. But, according to the rules of most organizations, the admixture of new blood is limited.

Singapore needs minimal grooming as the coat is short, snug, and has no undercoat. It is enough to comb and trim the nails once a week, although if you do this more often, it will not get worse. After all, they love attention, and the process of combing is nothing more than communication.

Cats remain the most popular pets around the world.Among the large number of breeds of these animals, Asian representatives of the cat family are especially popular. The Singaporean cat is popular among breeders due to its visual appeal, docile disposition and small size, in light of which it perfectly coexists with a person in the same dwelling.

Origin story

Singapura cat or Singapura is a pet breed that is notable for its modest size.For a long time, it was these representatives of the feline family that were considered the smallest in the whole world, which is why they were included in the Guinness Book of Records. Today, pets of the Singaporean breed belong to the class of elite pets, so their population all over the world stands out with rather modest numbers.

The ancestors of the Singapura are cats that live on the island of the same name and did not gain popularity among the indigenous population, since they chose sewers as their habitat.The work on the modernization of the sewer system caused the death of a large number of these animals. However, a lucky chance allowed the breed not only to survive, but also to radically change the attitude towards such cats. The animals attracted the attention of scientists who were on the island at that time, who took several individuals to America, where further work on breeding the breed was carried out. In 1974, the descendants of previously exported representatives of Singapore cats were brought back, after which the animals began to take part in exhibitions.

Some sources also contained information that Singapore owes its origin to the Burmese and Abyssinian breeds, since all the same scientists worked on them.

But animals have already gained special popularity among breeders, firmly securing the right to become favorite pets in human homes around the world.


In addition to their small size, Singaporean cats also have a rather modest weight: for example, the weight of adult animals varies from 500 grams to a kilogram.As for the physique of pets, even a small mass does not prevent animals from having a muscular body with a short but strong neck. The legs and tail are of normal length, however, there are certain requirements for the color of these parts of the body. There should be no stripes on the outside of the feet and the end of the tail should have a darker shade of coat.

The external features of cats of this breed allow us to consider them pretty creatures – this is due to the presence of large almond-shaped eyes, with an expression of slight surprise.The head of cats is round, the nose is wide and blunt. Pupils can be yellow or green. The ears are small, pointed at the ends.

The main distinguishing feature of the Singaporean cat breed is their color, in purebred animals it is only one . Moreover, there are a lot of options for describing it – from the color of the sun’s rays to the shade of golden sand.The standard for the breed is a cream-colored coat with a brown ticking, which will be concentrated on the head, along the back and on the tail. This color is called sepia agouti. The requirements for the color of the hair of cats also affect the number of stripes on the hair, of which there should be no more than two, and the root will always be lighter than the end.

Cats and cats of this breed are short-haired animals, but the tactile sensations when stroking them suggest that the pet’s coat is very silky and soft.

There is no undercoat in the representatives of the feline family, in light of which the coat adheres tightly to the body.

A characteristic feature in the appearance of Singaporean cats is the “rims” around the eyes and nose, the nose of the animal will be painted in salmon color, while the pads on the limbs will turn out to be pink with a brown tint.The contrasting borders on the cat’s face resemble the color of a cheetah.

According to international standards, purebred animals should have the following specific differences:

  • the body will be rectangular with smoothed corners;
  • The limbs should not be long;
  • nose and chin must be in line;
  • the ears will widen at the base, they are located at an average distance from each other;
  • the slanting of the eyes is more pronounced towards the outer corner, the distance between them is equal to the width of the eye itself;
  • The tail will be of medium length with a blunt tip, its length, when placed along the body of the animal, should reach the shoulder joint of the cat.

As a rule, Singapore cats give birth to no more than four kittens, while the life expectancy of a pet varies between 12-15 years.

Character traits

According to reviews of breeders, cats stand out for their docile disposition, friendly attitude towards humans.However, even when living together with people, cats of this breed tend to maintain their independence and authority. At the same time, the animals are very affectionate, willingly spend time with the owner, demonstrate their tenderness. Kittens very quickly become attached to their owner, therefore difficulties with adaptation to a new place of residence for breeders, as a rule, do not arise .

Cats have a very developed maternal instinct, so they will take care not only of their offspring, but also of the children of their owner.This fact allows you to have Singapore cats even in large families and with small children.

Cats of this breed are social animals that will willingly make contact even with strangers. Pets are very inquisitive and playful, and they show aggression only as a last resort – in order to protect themselves.Representatives of the feline family retain their activity and playful disposition until old age, so it is quite difficult to find a Singaporean cat outside of play or movement. Animals willingly enter into games with other pets, regardless of whether it is a dog or even a decorative rat.

For all their independence, Singapore cats are very attached to their breeder, therefore they can be constant companions in all his household chores. Animals are smart, so they are easy to train.If desired, such a pet can be taught simple commands, and tailed family members can remember their nickname and respond to it.

Singapore meows very rarely, animals are unobtrusive in terms of living together, therefore, in the absence of the owner, they are able to find something to do and have fun for themselves. Domesticated cats have preserved an innate hunting instinct, their low weight and size will not interfere with the desire to catch prey.

Containment Procedures

The main point regarding the maintenance of an animal is a properly selected diet.So, Singapore nutrition must be strictly controlled, since animals can eat uncontrollably, which will cause excess weight gain. For those cats that will eat commercial food, the breeder is advised to strictly control the daily intake of the cat, avoiding an increase in its amount. One kilogram of animal weight will require more than 25-30 grams of feed per feeding. The optimal industrial feed will be products containing no more than 30% of meat ingredients.With such a diet, the cat should always have free access to drinking water.

Pets that will eat regular food must be provided with all the necessary vitamins and minerals. That is why the following foods should be present in the diet of cats:

  • boiled lean meat;
  • cereals;
  • quail eggs;
  • medium fat cottage cheese and sour cream;
  • boiled vegetables;
  • fruits.

Singapore should be fed 5-6 times a day; if the pet is still small, then wet or canned products in the form of pate are selected from industrial feed.For an adult, two feedings per day will be sufficient.

There is a list of products that are contraindicated for animals:

  • sausages and smoked meats;
  • pork;
  • river fish;
  • any milk;
  • confectionery.

As a supplement to natural food, the cat owner is advised to use mineral and vitamin complexes, which can be purchased at the vetaptek.As the experience of keeping Singapore cats shows, premium products are more suitable for them from industrial feed.

No special care is required for the animal’s coat: as a rule, cats cope with hygiene on their own, however, to improve the appearance of the coat, the breeder should sometimes brush the pet.This is necessary to remove dead hairs. Usually, such manipulations are carried out once a week. Molting in animals takes place without any particular inconvenience for the breeder, most often the owner does not even notice the beginning and end of this process.

Singapore cats do not need bathing. Such a need may appear only if a small pet participates in specialized exhibitions. The ears of the animal require attention, since they stand out for their size, due to which they become a kind of target for dust and other contaminants.Every week, the owner should inspect his cat and remove accumulated dirt with a damp cotton pad; you can use cotton swabs and a special ear cleaner available from the pet store.

Eyes require more frequent care, so they are treated with damp sponges every day, it is also allowed to use decoctions of chamomile, calendula or St. John’s wort.

Today in veterinary pharmacies you can find wet wipes, which are designed to care for the eyes of pets.

A breeder of Singapore cats will need a claw cutter, which will have to cut off the grown claws from a small pet as they grow back. Typically, these procedures are performed twice a month. Also, the animal can help itself to grind them off on its own – for this, it is worth placing two or three scratching posts in the home.

Hygiene measures related to Singapura involve caring for the animal’s oral cavity. Pets’ teeth are cleaned several times a week with a soft brush.

These animals stand out for their innate cleanliness, therefore they very quickly learn to relieve themselves in a specially designated tray. However, the breeders of this breed recommend that inexperienced owners purchase a closed structure for the animal, since during these periods it will need privacy.As a rule, animals will adapt to using the litter box with any litter.

Due to the developed intelligence of the animal, the pet will be able to relieve itself immediately in the toilet. For these purposes, the owner is advised to purchase a special pad.

Since the animals are quite active and playful, the breeder will need to provide leisure time for small cats in the home. In order for the animal to have something to occupy itself, it is better for him to install various ladders, tunnels in the house, purchase several toys, houses and hammocks.

Singapore cats can be taken for a walk, but in this case it is worth remembering that animals react very badly to cold and drafts. That is why it is recommended to go outside with the animal only in the warm season.


In a miniature cat breed, maturation and development are rather slow.Singapuras usually reach full maturity closer to 24 months. However, even such a leisurely development does not prevent the animals of this breed from being famous for their excellent health. Among the frequent problems, one can note an increased sensitivity to vaccination, therefore, all Singaporean vaccinations should be done only in good veterinary clinics. Deworming and professional examinations for miniature pets are mandatory.

In order not to provoke health problems for your pet, you should avoid drafts in the room where the cat lives.

Signs that the animal has caught a cold are:

  • nasal and eye discharge that the owner should notice during daily hygiene procedures;
  • apathy and inactivity, which are unusual for this breed;
  • sneezing and fever.

The presence of at least one of the above symptoms is a good reason to immediately contact your veterinarian. Self-medication in this case is not recommended.

It is worth highlighting the main ailments that can occur in the breed in the light of the lack of genetic diversity.

Infertility and inertia of the uterus

Most often, ailments affect females. As a result of the characteristics of the muscle tissue of the organs of the animal, which are not able to contract in the proper rhythm and with the proper force, cats may have problems with natural childbirth.In this case, a caesarean section is performed for pregnant animals.

Lack of pyruvate kinase

This ailment concerns genetic malfunctions, as a result of which a deficiency of a glycolytic enzyme is observed in the body of pets, which causes hemolytic anemia.Signs of such a disease will be changes in the behavior of the animal, when the cat becomes lethargic, appetite worsens, and hair loss is observed. Such a disease can be sluggish, however, there are cases of the rapid development of the disease, which can become a serious threat to the life of a representative of the feline family.

The Singapore breed may also exhibit defects in appearance. These include:

  • defects in the structure of the tail, which will be noticeable only upon palpation;
  • dark color of the villi at the very base;
  • gray color of the animal’s coat.

Her big eyes make you fall in love at first sight, and the color of her coat makes you pay attention.And despite its size, the Singapura is a bold, strong and independent cat.

Origin of the breed

The Republic of Singapore is considered the birthplace of miniature cats. American Tommy Meadow, while on a business trip in 1975, drew attention to the small inhabitants of the local port and returned home with 4 adults – one cat and three cats. Soon, Meadow presented animals at exhibitions. The visitors drew attention to the small and unusual kittens. Over time, the Singaporean cat has become popular.The Meadows immediately began to breed and promote the breed. The demand for cats is great, so a waiting list is created for those who wish. The Singapore cat was recognized by felinologists in 1984, although the standard was adopted back in 1981. And also Singapore received champion status. It is worth noting that in the country of origin, these cute animals were referred to as “sewage cats”, as they lived mainly in the sewers.

The weight of an adult cat does not exceed 2 kg, and the weight of a cat is 3 kg. Singapurs have soft short hair without undercoat. Therefore, cats of this breed are sensitive to cold weather. The tips of the ears and tail may be black. This color confirms the purebredness of the breed. Another feature of such a cat is a small head, large eyes and ears, standing perpendicular to the head.

Health and Disease

The offspring stays with the mother longer than animals of other breeds.

It should be remembered that the Singaporean cat is sensitive to cold. Therefore, it is important to rid the room of drafts so that the animal does not catch a cold. The first signs of the disease are the lethargy of the cat and sneezing. Colds can be easily treated; with characteristic symptoms, it is better to contact your veterinarian immediately for treatment. Otherwise, cats are healthy by nature. The only thing is that the breed has a slow development.For this reason, Singaporean kittens are weaned from their mother at the age of three months, not earlier. One cat gives birth to up to 4 kittens. Childbirth is often difficult, sometimes veterinarians resort to caesarean.

About the breed Singapore cat – Singapore cat | Singapore cats cattery Kallibrills

Singapore by Cathie McHenry “The main mystery of cat lovers!” These were the words of Mary Ann Mehren, a breeder of Abyssinian cats, when she managed to acquire her first Singapura. Pet owners say Singapore is “worth their expectations.” What makes these cats special? First of all – their graceful appearance with an angelic expression of the muzzle; however, the real magic of Singapura is that these cats are adorable creatures.For those of us who are fortunate enough to work with this breed, there is simply nothing like the Singaporean.


The Singapore was first introduced by the CFA in 1981 by Hal and Tommy Meadow as a natural breed. Meadow said that when they lived in Singapore in the early 70s, they adopted three local cats that lived in drainage channels. Cats, which they called “singapore” as typical animals for this city, were by no means the most common on the streets of Singapore.

When the Meadows returned to the United States in 1975, they took with them three cats that became the basis for the Singaporean breed: Pusse – a young cat and littermates Ticle – a cat and a kitten Tess (Tes). Since 1955, Tommy has been a breeder of Abyssinians, Burmese and Siamese, so she has always been interested in brown and ticked cats. Singapore Championship status, as a natural breed, received in the CFA in 1988.

In 1990, one of the CFA breeders’ clubs of the Singapura breed asked to consider the question of the origins of this breed.The question emerged from customs documents indicating that Meadows introduced cats into Singapore in 1974 with exactly the same names as the ones they referred to as found in Singapore, namely Pussy, Tess and Tickle. At the CFA Board meeting on October 6, 1990, Joan (Wastlhuber) Miller encouraged Singapura breeders with the following speech: South-East Asia. Naturally, it comes from the gene pool of the Burmese group of cats, where copper cats from 1350, for example, Abyssinian.Whether they were met on the streets of Singapore or the streets of Michigan, it doesn’t matter. In addition, there is at least one documented Chiko cat, which is found in many Singapura pedigrees and was specially brought from Singapore. Even if none of the cats brought by Meadow are native Sinapura cats, there is one legitimate animal from Singapore in the Singapura family tree. ” (1991-1992 CFA Yearbook, p. 629, columns 2 and 3)

Despite the fact that the official status of the breed was not questioned, many of those who spent many years and countless hours working on this breed were puzzled and excited.Mr and Mrs Meadow were invited to the CFA Board meeting on February 9-10, 1991 to provide information on the breed’s origins. Mr. Meadow told CFA officials that the original group of animals was imported from Singapore in 1971 in a rowboat without any export documents, and three of the animals are already the grandchildren of four unnamed progenitors from the boat. (1991-1992 CFA Yearbook, p. 635, columns 2 – 4)

On April 22, 1980, Chiko, a Singaporean cat found directly in a Singapore ditch, flew to Seattle, Washington via SPCA.Brad, Captain Flint Tiger, and Sheila Bowers, seeing a Singaporean cat at Barbara Gilbertson’s, decided to try to find a cat of this breed during a trip to Singapore. They met cats similar in description at night in the thickets of bushes along the drainage canals, but nothing more. One day, they met a KOTA that matched the breed in everything except the tail in the SPCA. They managed to convince SPCA veterinarian Dr. Lee to release Chico as a full-fledged animal, since it was assumed that he would live outside the city.Chico proved to be a very important cat, as he arrived with documents confirming the existence of this breed in Singapore.

In 1987, retired engineer and young Singaporean breeder Gerry Mayes was presented with an opportunity he could not refuse. He went to Singapore for a long time. During his three months there, Garry negotiated with the Singapore Cat Club to help import additional animals into the United States.It was a successful venture. He managed to return with several Singapura cats, as well as some others. Despite this, the cats imported by Mayes were not eligible for registration with the CFA, their descendants began to merge into the breed with pedigrees of only the fifth generation.


Hal and Tommy Meadow have worked enthusiastically and hard to breed, improve and advertise “their” Singapore cats. They flew around the country showing cats to judges and working on their recognition.Hours and hours, not to mention money, have gone into making this breed famous. In late 1978, one giant leap was taken when Barbara Gilbertson became the first breeder besides the Meadows to acquire a pair of Singaporean cats: Rummy and Thumper. The Singapura breed has developed. Other early breeders were: Helen Cherry, Jo Cobery, Alice Dilts, Alice Faber, Florence Greenburg, Priscilla Hobbs, Catherine McQuari ( Catherine MacQuarrie, Nancy Mattos, Gerry Mayes, Tord Svenson, and Mary Tichenor.All these enthusiasts have done a lot for the development of the breed.

After the CFA accepted Singapore for registration in 1981, the Singapura Fanciers’ Society was formed. The breed got the opportunity for further development. The cats felt great in the show rings, attracting the attention of the public, their number grew. The only concern breeders had was the accidental appearance of solid colored animals in litters from two singapore.Given that the single color is a recessive gene, both parents, in this case, must be carriers. Some breeders felt that the only way to further develop the breed was to test mates with monochromatic cats, isolate carriers of the gene and remove them from the breeding program. Others, on the contrary, believed that the breed was still too young and following this path would set too strict limits in inheritance. The difference in approach led to the creation of a second CFA-affiliated Singapore breed club called the International Singapura Alliance.

Sociable cat

Initially, it seems that Singapore needs people. It really comes as a surprise when you consider how close these cats are to their ancestors from the drainage channels. The desire to be close to a person is a trait of all Singaporeans, regardless of whether this cat was born in a 20-year targeted breeding program, or just acclimatized and is an F1 animal.

This willingness to trust people in Singapore, combined with the skills needed to survive on the streets, has undoubtedly helped many half-drowned kittens survive, caught from sewers before they were washed away.The irony is that the government of Singapore, which initiated the canal cleaning project and thereby destroyed the habitual habitats of cats, made a sharp turn towards the proclamation of the Singapore cat breed as the national symbol of the island, which actually happened. In 1991, the Singapore Tourism Board installed cat statues along the riverbank and began to mention the Singaporean breed in all promotional materials. The cats that posed for these statues were taken from Singapore, however, they were imported from the United States.One can only hope that the efforts of the Singaporean authorities to clear the sewers were not completely successful and the Singapore cats played a decisive role here.

Rita Kay Bee, who has been dealing with Persians and exotics for more than 25 years before joining this process, described the attitude towards Singapore as follows:

“The world is my oyster. Out of the way, I’m going for the pearl and no one can stop me.” Singapore has a gift that allows her to get exactly what she needs, before you know about this gift, she is like a small child who looks at you with huge beseeching eyes and asks, “Well, please, please, please… “

Is it possible to train singapore? Undoubtedly. The only problem is that they are often better trainers for us than we are for them. It is by no means uncommon for a new Singaporean owner to fall under the spell of a cat of this breed, which ultimately makes the animal terribly spoiled. As you can imagine, this leads to the emergence of many spoiled animals with unrealizable exhibition potential. It is necessary to be one step ahead of such cats and then they will behave perfectly.

These attractive creatures with large eyes and ears will not disregard any business or events around them. They are lively, curious and smart, someone might say, too smart. Singaporeans know they can do anything better than you. Cooking in the kitchen is an especially favorite pastime. Pens, when you are trying to write something, or a computer keyboard, make wonderful toys. Cats of this breed are very playful and their playfulness is also evident in adulthood.Despite the fact that these animals are very playful, at the same time, they are very sensitive to the mood of their owners. If you are not feeling well about the weather, your Singaporean may be next to you under the covers, but most likely she will be waiting at your feet when you invite her.

Singapore is not prone to confrontation and rarely quarrels. One of the breeders of Abyssinian cats says that when the Abyssinian began to bully, Singapura simply ran out of the room. Adult Singapuras are quite calm.In cats, estrus begins when they reach one year of age, and cats do not untie until they reach 15 months of age. Cats become great mothers and happily babysit kittens for a very long time. Kittens usually do not leave their box until 4 weeks of age.

One of the most intriguing facts about the Singapura breed is the adult cat. They seem to prefer to live with other Singapura cats. No fights and quarrels. Most breeders buy large houses for cats and kittens because cats like to sleep side by side together.


Singaporeans enjoy show ring success by rewarding their owners. The first Grand Champion of Jubilation Pikku Poyka, bred by Mary Tichenor, gained his title quite quickly after the breed was admitted to the championship ring. Singapore’s first Grand Premier Mutiny Pa’ki Wun Sun, owner and breeder Robert LaBounty, received her title in 1989. Marge Jackson became interested in the breed and used her experience with the Russian Blue to her advantage.Marge and Bob Jackson showed Singapore GC, NW Nuance’s Original Design By Rimba at the National Top25 Show and won. Originally American Shorthairs, Bill and Barbara Courtney participated in shows with Singaporeans GC, GP Changi’s Sahaja of Angiras and GC, GP Usaf’s Senada’s Scamp of Angiras and won the Premier Cup.

Despite only obtaining champion status in 1988, Singapore boasts more than a hundred animals that have received the Grand Champion and Grand Premier titles and 5 Distinguished Merit Awards with most of the requirements being fulfilled.In 1995, a third breeder club, the United Singapura Society, was approved by the CFA. The breeder standard underwent the first refinement. Singapore has become an important member of the feline community.

Some have criticized this breed for its slow quantitative development. However, we must not forget one serious point that the Singapura is a natural breed and crossing it with others is unacceptable. The CFA traced the evolution of the Singapura to three 1975 cats (two of which were from the same litter) and one 1980 cat.We are now about 10-12 generations from the ancestor cats.

Hal and Tommy Meadow can be proud of their triumph. Singapore has gone from being “their” cat, with a small group of breeders demanding their constant support, to today’s breed. Today’s Singapura breed brings together the loyalty of many groups of independent and experienced, and most importantly, interested breeders. What a wonderful gift the Meadows have made to the feline community.
