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 . . .
We are staying in Aptera Appartments and have met the lady who takes care of the cats. She does an awesome job yet could use some help of the (MANY) tourists who spent their holidays in Aptera. Please help this lady by either donating catfood (leave it in the house on the square where tha cats are staying, it’s the house in the curve with the old fence, see the pictures at the catcolony site).
In general the Greek do not take care of their cat and we all know that we could spare a little money for this great cat program or help this sweet generous lady with some cat food!… read more . . .

Hair/skin samples sent for analysis showed mites causing mange
Injected the colony twice with Ivermectin to treat mange/ear mites
Purchased environmental pesticide so the rooms & barn they live in which where infested with parasites could be fumigated
Treated approx. 35 with Frontline spot on (those we could catch!) over 2 months for those suffering flea allergy
15 sent for Veterinary treatment & neutered funded by Arche Noah, our thanks to them
Three sent for veterinary care to our very supportive Greek vet with serious eye/skin infections which are now healed
Provide food every month to assist their Greek carer to feed them & vitamin supplements added to their water
They now look & must feel so much better with no pregnant ones so far a few entire males left to catch & neuter
The threat of poisoning seems to have been withdrawn since our assistance managing this colony
Our last goal is to treat them all for internal parasites particularly (tapeworm in particular) but with the rescue kittens/cats we are taking in this year we cannot find the funds to buy such huge quantities (Profender/Drontal or Stronghold) can anyone help in providing any?… read more . . .
Approximately 50 cats are being fed by a local Greek lady who has become overwhelmed by their needs. We are providing food every month, veterinary care and a neutering program also supported by volunteers and her neighbours.
The cats are suffering from server fungal disease and skin infections, we have paid for our vet to take skin samples for testing. To regain their health this colony will need fungicide treatment, many have severe flea allergy and are riddled with parasites… read more . . .
