We had the most adorable kittens and Mother at the clinic at the start of May, kittens approx 4 weeks of age fit and healthy very bonded with humans. We desperately need a home for them the carer can only keep the mother.
We can assist with vaccination and neutering someone must be able to give these little ones a loving home.
Hi everyone these pictures are difficult to look at but people need to see what we do and why we do it. Simple cat flu turns into bacterial infection it destroys the eyes they go blind.
This gentle loving female heavily pregnant was left on the streets slowly losing her eyes for the want of a vet visit and simple eye drops.

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 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 . . .
