I am the lady that was holidaying in Rhodes that was trying to help an injured kitten, I am delighted to say, that with the help of the GWCS and RAWS, he is to be treated, passported and has a place on a flight back to the UK on October 21st.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help, support and advice.
I have attached a photo of the little beauty for you to see. Isn’t he adorable!! He looks like he could have a broken leg, but he hasn’t been to the vet yet so we do not know what treatment he will need
Good luck with the rescuing, you are all doing the most amazing work
Found very dehydrated and with an eye infection, and of course starving. He seems to be around 6 weeks old but not sure. He is approx. 250 centimeters in length. Very handlable. We think he is male.3rd August 2012 Bertie visited the vet today & was confirmed as being a boy! Has had subcutaneous antibiotics for his cat flu, & will have milbemax for worms & effipro for fleas tommorow
9th August 2012 Bertie has now recovered from his cat flu, and is looking much healthier despite a mild mild case of ringworm (note the typical black staining around the nose & mouth)
Tati a silver tabby lost her right eye due to untreated infection whilst roaming the streets, and her left eye has a cataract leaving her mostly blind. She is very tame & affectionate and now has a loving & safe home
We have another little one needing a home He was found thrown in the middle of a busy road bewildered & crying rescued by a kind passer by who contacted us for help. He is coming to join Itzy, Bitzy & Witzy we are sadly lacking in inspiration so he is hence forth known as Mitzy! (now Solo) We have transport to the UK in June if anyone can find friends or relatives kind enough to give a home to any of these orphans.
The first of this year’s arrivals are here courtesy of a helpful human being placing 5 week old kittens still feeding from their Mother into a tied up feed sack thrown into a Chania refuse bin. A passer-by heard them screaming & climbed in to rescue them & kindly brought them to us.
Despite the usual dehydration & starvation they are very talkative (you can hear them the other end of the garden!) they love humans & are starting to play & we are weaning them early as they are so hungry.
Predictably they have mild cat flu & the usual parasites which we have already started treating including a hot bath & scrub with a toothbrush as they were filthy little beings!
Itzy (♂), Bitzy (♂) & Witzy (♀) need a loving home they will be vaccinated, neutered & micro-chipped.
If anyone has friends or relatives living in the UK, Netherlands or Switzerland we will pay for their care, veterinary bills, pet passports & microchips if the adopters can assist with travel costs (€70-€200 depending upon method of transport).
