Hi everyone, we hope to neuter again in November (no dates as yet) the Dimos have kindly been completing essential renovations and repairs to the clinic. Apologies to anyone who we missed with the cancellation messages, our team did their very best to reach you all. Next session anyone who was cancelled will get priority on the new list.
Please keep your loaned equipment but do not lend it out! If it gets lost you will have to replace it! Meanwhile the generosity of cat lovers all over has allowed us to buy dry cat food again for the strays. If you are feeding a colony (this food is for stray cats only) and struggling to afford it please contact us with the following: How many cats you feed and location, your name, address and telephone number
Hi Everyone, our furry ones are asking for your help again any way you can!
This little tabby boy hit by a car pushed his back leg out of the hip socket, his tummy and bits are black and blue he was in agony. Volunteers caught him took him to our vet, she pushed his leg back in and treated the injuries. Sadly he has developed swelling of the brain and is on steroids and fluids overnight tomorrow he will have Mannitol intravenously to try to reduce the brain swelling.
Something nice! We have three monkeys, two needing homes. Thrown into the bottom of a bin & rescued by a Greek lady. Hera (tricolour) & Freya (tabby) are now 5 weeks old & need loving homes. Hera is plump and opinionated like most torties! Freya is dainty and clever she loves cuddles, they all do. Meanwhile its official we have turned into a zoo!
We are ever grateful to Cretan Animal Protection who next week is finally able to take Zippy, Fifi, Freddy, Dugee, Bambi & Mr Pilchard to their new homes in the UK.
We have others & those were nursing. We have tough decisions to make; do we continue to provide free food for our strays monthly, feed & medicate all the ones we are looking after or pay our vet? Any lovely people out there for Sansa & Arya? Can anyone support us in feeding our strays?
Many thanks to the Joint Animal Welfare Society – JAWS for PAWS who made it an afternoon to remember for those who supported our cats & attended the Douliana benefit at Taverna Ntouliana on Friday. An amazing €1075 was raised and everyone has commented how lovely the venue was so thanks also to the restaurant staff who worked so hard.
Those of you following Heather`s posts on facebook will know Sweety came to us at the weekend for intensive care, she was deteriorating rapidly. Despite emergency care on Monday morning sadly her heart gave out whilst our vet was trying to treat her.
People have been asking the cause, its not pleasant but sometimes we do postmortems on difficult cases to make sure we have all done what we can & learn what care we can change if anything in the future. Sweety had overwhelming infection from old wounds, her lungs and chest cavity were filled with pus, nothing would have saved this brave girl.
Food for the strays: yesterday we took delivery of the cat food we were able to buy with the donations from you lovely, caring cat lovers who support our Cretan cats. We have been able to feed cat colonies from Aptera to Kournas, over ½ a ton of dry cat food. Next month we aim to do the same again.
