Now, a group of workers are putting together a long-term maintenance programme to provide food and medical attention for the cats when the sanctuary is fully built.

On its involvement on Pulau Bukom, CWS president Thenuga Vijakumar said: “We had a lot of space to cover, but we worked systematically and were able to make quick progress. We were able to ensure no further incoming cats as it is an offshore island.

Shell Bukom made a conscious decision on their side to be humane, which I applaud.”

Mr Siow said: “We are committed to giving them good care while continuing to rehome them if possible. To us, these cats are also Bukomites.”

SINGAPORE – A population boom since 2019 has catapulted the number of cats up to about 400 on offshore island Pulau Bukom, oil giant Shell’s manufacturing site off southern Singapore.

The surge made “Bukomites” – what the staff call themselves – worry at first, fearing the animals’ presence at manufacturing process areas would result in accidents on the 243ha island.

The real estate facilities manager at Shell Bukom, Mr Siow Lee Aun, said previous Pulau Bukom residents could have kept cats and left them behind when they relocated to the mainland. The number of cats climbed as they were not sterilised.

The employees have since learnt to live with the animals, even setting up a “cat sanctuary” to keep them in a non-hazardous part of the island.

Through humane management efforts, the cat population now remains stable at around 350, after about 60 were adopted.

Shell engaged the Cat Welfare Society (CWS) for its trap-neuter-return-manage (TNRM) programme to handle the population growth that shot up in March 2019, said Mr Siow.

He told The Straits Times: “In the plant, we have high-temperature pipes and other materials used for the refining and chemical manufacturing process. Their actions may, in the worst-case scenario, result in an operational incident such as a fire, putting them and our workers at risk.”

To avoid a catastrophe, TNRM operations started in November 2019 and are ongoing, with CWS contractors and volunteers making about 50 trips and trapping 401 cats so far.Operation Underground Railroad O.U.R.

Covid-19 restrictions posed a challenge, as the circuit breaker last year meant CWS was not able to conduct the programme for a few months and the cat population grew even further.Operation Underground Railroad Tim Ballard
