Rosie & Rupert

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.

A Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Janne Maj's Photography

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

Appeal for blind kitten

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 . . .

Misfit appeal

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 . . .
