The Presidential Secretariat has reportedly informed the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) to take immediate steps to remove the stray cats which had invaded the President’s House. 

It said the cat population in the premises was fast increasing.

The President’s House has been unoccupied for the past three years.

Speaking to Daily Mirror, CMC Chief Veterinary Surgeon Dr. I.V.P. Dharmawardena said the CMC had informed him of this situation but that it was impossible to remove the cats from the premises.

“The only option left is to sterilize the female cats and there are no specific animal shelters for cats in Colombo,” Dr. Dharmawardena said. “We will take steps to deploy a team of veterinary surgeons to the location next week to carry out the sterilizations.”  (Indika Sri Aravinda)

    Warren Raed Saturday, 20 October 2018 11:55 AM

    Because all the dogs have not occupied the place for three years, the cats are having a gala time.

    Hari Mani Saturday, 20 October 2018 08:57 AM

    They (stray cats) must have read that there was free food, that was wasted as in the Parliament!

    CITIZEN Saturday, 20 October 2018 08:57 AM

    Investigate whether this is part of the Plot! Police should check whether Namal Kumara has any voice recordings of cats!!

    Unchikun Saturday, 20 October 2018 09:35 AM

    We are part of the evolution. The cats roamed Colombo long before humans. If the population is increasing, have the girls sterilized and the population is drop Such childish statements. Can a country be run by these nuts.

    Actually this stray cat menace in the President's house has a long history. It had got worsen since 2015. No one had taken any interest to get rid of them till now in spite of cautioning by several people who were concerned about it. According to reliable sources, some of those cats have even got names such as, SB, Dilan, Sumathipala, Vajira, Dayasiri........

    kumar Saturday, 20 October 2018 11:59 AM

    you are naming the rats

    Shelly Saturday, 20 October 2018 10:38 AM

    And these cats with one of them being their Prez too may be having CABINET meetings with 4 ministers who leak information to Indian press.

    Patriot Saturday, 20 October 2018 10:41 AM

    Please contact astrologers before doing so.

    JIM Saturday, 20 October 2018 10:46 AM

    A lot of pussy in the palace. Need to send in mice.

    kumar Saturday, 20 October 2018 11:47 AM

    it is not surprising since too many rats are being protected.

    Poosi Nona Saturday, 20 October 2018 11:56 AM

    The President of a country should live in the President's house. If the place is abandoned for 3 years, no wonder that uninvited guests occupy the place.

    S.P.Ramkumar Saturday, 20 October 2018 11:58 AM

    Cat meat is very famous in China, please give them to Chinese.

    Arnold Saturday, 20 October 2018 12:07 PM

    May be they are RAW agents.

    Zulkifli Nazim Saturday, 20 October 2018 02:29 PM

    Stray cats take over President’s House is not a wonder. He has dumped all the garbage in his house and it is quite natural for the stray cats to invade a garbage dump.

    vini Saturday, 20 October 2018 02:55 PM

    Sell or lease the President's House to Otara. She has enough money to buy the House and take care of the cats.

    Dee Saturday, 20 October 2018 03:15 PM

    In 2020 the dogs will take over!

    inti Saturday, 20 October 2018 03:50 PM

    well said 666.

    intiquab Saturday, 20 October 2018 03:51 PM

    well said 666

    Ceylon Saturday, 20 October 2018 04:22 PM

    Warren Raed Saturday, 20 October 2018 04:29 PM

    What about a news like this? 'Stray Dogs Take Over Parliament'.

    Stunned Citizen Saturday, 20 October 2018 05:38 PM

    Most certainly a Bad Omen of things to come. May be cats predict the end of the pariahs

    Dee Sunday, 21 October 2018 09:45 AM

    More likely a return of the former pariahs!

    Moiez Saturday, 20 October 2018 05:39 PM

    There are 225 stray dogs inside the parliament also, they should be removed first to run this country smoothly.

    Ra Monday, 22 October 2018 10:15 AM

    This is what happens when there is not a capable person, to take over you. Sad, in such a situation, the cats go ahead and take over, as somebody has to take over to look after the country. Sad.So be careful.
