we have two delightful tabby kittens found abandoned in a derelict house with no Mummy their 2 siblings died. Currently being weaned they are about 5 weeks old but starved and small for their age. They have a way to go a few more weeks with us to be treated and fattened up, they will be vaccinated we can assist with neutering.
Minnie (left) the little girl is a beige tabby, confident, naughty, very loving and vocal! Mousie is a black tabby a little bigger than his sister more timid he is shy but coming round.
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 (Rena Terezaki) 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.
Lots of people are asking after Rodney, despite antibiotics, operations, intensive nursing, love and care from his foster mum our poor boy tested positive for FIV. He could not fight off his infections and we all made the sad decision to let him go.
Thanks to all of you who contributed to his care we cannot offer this service to our local cats without your support.
Pippy (tri color) is another found blind in a builders yard all her siblings died one of our Greek volunteers removed her and asked us to take her.
We need your help to find a home for Pippy kitten she came in eyes stuck shut suffering hideous cat flu. Once the antibiotics worked and her eyes opened we realised she had eyes but they were not working.
Pippy is around 10 weeks of age she reacts to bright light but behaves like a totally blind kitten, she responds to voices/noise and although scared at times this is not stopping her playing and running around.
She is just lovely, she uses her litter tray, loves cuddles but is definitely wanting to play and has a strong will. Pippy needs to be an indoor cat she can be around other cats she is just not safe to be outside.
As usual she will be vaccinated, neutered and passport provided should she be adopted elsewhere.
Sadly Pippy died during an anaesthetic even after all she had been through in finding her forever home
Willow is approx 4 years of age found by the roadside having seizures, we are certain she was struck on the head causing cerebellar injury. X Rays showed no new breaks but that she had probably been run over by a car in the past (healed fractures of tail/femur/pelvis)
We have no access to diagnostic scans such as CT/MRI the brain injury has been diagnosed by examination only. Manitol and steroids initially for 3 weeks nothing other than parasite treatments since, she has had limited physiotherapy we do not access to hydro or specialist care.
Willow has made incredible progress she can now stand on all four legs and walks despite losing her balance as she still falls over, uses newspapers or the garden area for toileting (we cannot get a litter tray she can use as she falls out of it!). In the garden every day when the weather is good she loves being around us and her care is minimal (the occasional hot flannel on bits she finds difficult to reach) her will to live and determination to move again is humbling.
Willow is a lap cat obviously she must have been an indoor cat at some point but is a very independent spirit! We cannot keep her as she does not like other cats and will not tolerate them although we have got her to sit in the same room as ours now. Due to this we cannot have her indoors with us permanently when the winter comes we have nowhere for her to go, our own cats have learned to move fast when she is around!
We have had 3 vets assess her all say she is continuing to make further progress and should have a normal lifespan can any of you help her or find an organisation with better resources than ours?
The sweetest litter of orphan kittens around 6 weeks of age, Mummy was knocked over and killed on the roadside. Very sad and frightened on arrival bottle fed first few weeks, now weaned they are gorgeous happy kittens.
We have two female dumplings calico type coats (grey/beige) they will be big.
The tortie female is a typical bossy don`t tell me what to do tortie!
The black boy has a Harry Potter white tipped tail stunning sleek creature.
All are very cuddly and humanized, they can go to their new homes in 2 weeks if adopted here we will vaccinate, microchip and if with us long enough neuter them.
If anyone can adopt please contact us if you cannot we need donations for their care and tickets to the UK.
