We are appealing on behalf of partially sighted Pollyanna who is desperate for a home.
Found wandering the streets of Kalyves this young tortoiseshell female (approx 2 years of age) was underweight unable to hunt for food she would have starved this winter. Pollyanna has damaged corneas from old cat flu, neutered, all blood tests normal (FIV/FeLV negative) she is now fit and healthy.
Her vision is better at a distance not so good when close to objects as she cannot focus. She plays with her toys, uses her litter tray, very loving and affectionate she is very active behaving like any other cat except she can startle easily and needs pointing in the right direction sometimes.
Pollyanna would be safer as an indoor cat or allowed into a secluded garden as she is used to being outside.
If you wish to adopt or know anyone who might please contact us otherwise we need to raise the funds to send her to Woodland Nook in the UK for re homing.
Animal Welfare in Apokoronas is under attack from internal and external forces if you care for the health and well-being of our strays you need to help by signing the petitions, forwarding it to everyone you can and supporting our neutering programme against those who would malign our work.
Our clinic is one of the few still working on the island now threatened with closure due to those whose only concern is their fragile ego and own personal gain, giving no thought to the consequences of their appalling behaviour and puerile accusations.
Imagine going back to the days neutering only if you could afford to fund it yourself, the legion of starving, sick, abused, dead and dying animals we had in Apokoronas left to fend for themselves. We exist solely due to our volunteers good will and hard work, the professionalism and compassion of our vets, the tireless work of our mayor and his colleagues supporting animal welfare.
External forces nationwide want to prevent volunteer vets from working in Greece this has been happening for some time. It has now been brought out into the open by our Chania colleagues those with influence are trying to find a way forward and open constructive dialogue the goal is to reinstate the neutering of strays and cease the persecution of foreign vets.
