The Apokoronas cats send big purrsss & many thanks to our Chania colleagues in particular Elizabeth of the The Souda Shelter Project for the unexpected & fantastic 120 kg of donated cat food! We mix the Dreamies with the food given out also using as treats for the sick ones.
We still have these gorgeous kittens from last years rescue now about 5 months of age who need a home, can anyone give them the stability and love they need.
Abandoned on a roadside emaciated, pneumonia from cat flu anaemic from parasites they where 12 weeks of age. Rosie is a dainty lap cat all she wants is constant affection and cuddles she cradles into you and purrs a gentle little creature.
Her right eye had a corneal ulcer now healed the eye infection scarred her pupil but she can see fine & can be an outdoor cat.
There are two sides to every Christmas story, there is Mira and her adoption paid for by generous and loving tourists, and there are our local Cretans who love their cats but do not always have the resources, funds and knowledge to care for them.
We hope this illustrates the reality of what we do and neither detracts from the other
We cannot survive and cannot treat, neuter, rescue our Cretan cats without your support, we thank you for everything you help us do
We get many requests to take in healthy, unwanted pets & strays for various reasons; when people leave the island, kittens/cats picked up off the roads which are otherwise well and managing to survive.
Today this little tabby & white kitten arrived from Kefalas brought in by the colony carer, we think he/she is about 6 weeks of age too traumatized to handle the sex remains a mystery for now. The mother was neutered last weekend this was her last surviving kitten, thankfully no more kittens will be born to an infected mother.… read more . . .
Please watch your cat colonies and cats in this area, we have an animal abuser using a blunt object beating cats to death with blows to the head.
Last night two adults and a kitten from a much loved colony were beaten to death last night, the rest of the bin cats are clearly distressed and afraid. Another was missing and has just been taken to the vet, having been beaten lower down on its body (20/10/16) seen by vet and found to have been in a catfight, not beaten).… read more . . .
We have the following stunning cats/kittens to re home most are vaccinated/micro chipped some have passports if not already neutered we can assist with neutering. Please contact us if you can assist these affectionate loving abandoned cats.
Another family visiting the island distressed to find this little one tossed onto the pavement to die by a bin. 10-14 days old eyes only just open we think it’s a boy, dehydrated/starving they did well to keep him alive until they got to us. 3 hourly bottle feeds, bathed & cuddled up to Mrs Tiger he is doing well screaming in chorus with Mowgli in the pen below! Early days yet but if anyone wants to offer him a home in a months’ time please contact us any donations towards little ones care gratefully accepted.… read more . . .
We have an appeal for our little group of misfits that came into us over the weekend.
Two sets of tourists left the island traumatised spending the weekend either fishing ginger kittens one by one out of boiling wheelie bins, stuffed into cardboard boxes left to die in Kalyves or tabby kittens left ignored by the roadside dying of dehydration sitting on their dead mother in Almyrida. The kind tourists that picked them up spent an agonising 2 days dodging hotel staff whilst trying to find someone to help.… read more . . .
