five more binned kittens…

As usual this time of year people seem to think its acceptable to rip kittens away still feeding from Mummy too abandon them in the nearest bin.

These little ones are approximately 4 weeks of age the Tortie on the right Twizzle is female her ginger and white brother was adopted 27/5/17, pining on her own she went to her foster mummy Heather.
Twizzle is very confident and vocal healthy playing no signs of cat flu or any infections so far, as usual she will be vaccinated and neutered.read more . . .

Loving home required

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.

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

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 . . .

Ragnar Update & Missing Trap

ragnar AprilplMany people are asking about Ragnar & his progress this lucky boy is going to Hanover!
His wonderful adopters have a ready made harem two girls both of which suffered abuse & lost a leg. The adopters are comfortable with disabled cats & have an enclosed garden where he will be safe.
He can stand, the wound has healed he uses his litter trays but it will be sometime before he regains full use of his remaining back leg. The lazy boy has worked out he can run faster by using his powerful front legs on the tiles to get along!… read more . . .

Appeal for Loki

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkQUwMN66VA[/youtube]

Loki needs a special Mum & Dad he is blinded in the right eye limited vision in the left. He was found crying on the side of the road in Kalyves (Crete) roasting in the midday sun his eyelids stuck together by pus. He had pneumonia, eye ulcerations, parasite overload, dehydration & was starved sadly his rescuer saw half a dozen people walk by him. We suspect he was thrown out of his litter either due the fact he is black or because he was sick.… read more . . .
