This little girl used up 8 lives when she was thrown from a car onto the national highway like rubbish.
We think she landed on her back leg causing soft tissue damage to her hip and knee joints. Our colleague Ρένα Τερεζάκη risked life and limb to scoop the kitten off the road, puss is very lucky to be alive. 8 weeks of age she is being cage nursed for 2 weeks, she has had her first vaccination and will be neutered.
Here is Rodney, he came to us yesterday from Kalives. So filthy we had to bathe him the fleas were crawling over us and the work surfaces literally hundreds, we have never seen such infestation.

He is anaemic from the parasites & has cat flu & is very malnourished, he is a young boy only about 2 or 3 years of age.
Today bless him after antibiotics, parasite treatments, warmth and food he is talking to us and allowed us to scratch his head! We are hoping he recovers, if he is tame we will try to re home him. If anyone would like to foster him (all expenses paid), adopt or help with his care please donate or contact us direct.
Sat 13-Apr-2019: Rodney update
Rodney is feeling very sorry for himself today… yesterday he had 3 teeth
removed and was neutered. But he is
resting on pain meds/antibiotics and soft food, & best of all we have a
foster mum taking him Monday for lots of TLC and hugs.
Mia was eventually caught in Kalyves were she was spotted by a volunteer over the New Year with a partial traumatic amputation of her tail. In a terrible state with the cold & wet weather she needed plenty of warmth, TLC & food. Last week she was operated on to remove what was left of the tail and Mia is recovering really well.
After initially appearing as a feral cat she is really another discarded kitten
Betty (tabby & white) 11 weeks of age came in unconscious no temperature she was so cold, her right eye was bulging and bleeding she was not moving. Next day we realised she was paralysed from the hips hit by a car we think laying in the wet and cold all night.
We had to make her pee, move her about we never thought she would keep her eye or walk again and here she is!
Betty is doing everything a normal kitten would, her eye is healed she will keep it, she plays, runs jumps her back legs are just a little bit wobbly needing exercise (it was spinal shock).Can anyone adopt this gorgeous, mischievous, purring girl she has made a miraculous recovery, meantime we desperately need a foster home so she can exercise and run about.
Sydney (ginger & white) is 4 months of age but very small he had such a rough start. He came in very cold, eyes glued shut with pus from cat flu he is now gaining weight and playing (he loves Betty…). He curls up and sits in your arms he is a lovely little chap but very shy.
Please help these little ones any way you can. Thank you!
The Municipality of Apokoronas obeys faithfully the legislative ordinances of stray animals’ well-being and protection, as piece of our culture’s evidence. After my assumption of duties regarding the handling of stray animals, in partnership with the Mayor Mr. Har. Koukianakis, we set in motion the below actions:
There will be an independent office for the handling of stray animals in the Town Hall’s building. Full-time employee will be working there. Communication telephone: 2825340321.
From now on, we will be recording each stray animal around our villages in order to feed and take better care of them with the aid of Municipality’s employees and volunteers.
We allot extra money so as the neutering, hygiene care and the alimentation will be increased. Also, we will help with the necessary buildings’ beautification and upgrade, so as the animals to be taken care of temporarily there and totally healed.
We will fully protect stray animals so as unpleasant and embarrassing situations will not exist any more. Animals deserve our attention and we should correspond to this right of them.
Apokorona’s Municipality, even there are adversities, is doing its best to deal with the issue of stray animals immediately and effectively, providing human and economic resources, facilities and every useful means that can help with their management. In this difficult activity, we want you to stand by us and not to judge us. We ask from you to continue this road that we have already “opened” for the important issue of the stray animals’ handling.
