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.
Mia was eventually caught in Kalyves were she was spotted by a volunteer over the New Year with a partial traumatic amputation of her tail. In a terrible state with the cold & wet weather she needed plenty of warmth, TLC & food. Last week she was operated on to remove what was left of the tail and Mia is recovering really well.
After initially appearing as a feral cat she is really another discarded kitten
Betty (tabby & white) 11 weeks of age came in unconscious no temperature she was so cold, her right eye was bulging and bleeding she was not moving. Next day we realised she was paralysed from the hips hit by a car we think laying in the wet and cold all night.
We had to make her pee, move her about we never thought she would keep her eye or walk again and here she is!
Betty is doing everything a normal kitten would, her eye is healed she will keep it, she plays, runs jumps her back legs are just a little bit wobbly needing exercise (it was spinal shock).Can anyone adopt this gorgeous, mischievous, purring girl she has made a miraculous recovery, meantime we desperately need a foster home so she can exercise and run about.
Sydney (ginger & white) is 4 months of age but very small he had such a rough start. He came in very cold, eyes glued shut with pus from cat flu he is now gaining weight and playing (he loves Betty…). He curls up and sits in your arms he is a lovely little chap but very shy.
Please help these little ones any way you can. Thank you!
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
This very affectionate cat (who in the past has had many kittens) visited her UK cat lovers every summer. Last year she was neutered in the Dimos program, however on their return this year they where distraught to see her covered in weeping infected burns, without intervention she would have died a very painful death from infection.
Distressingly for all concerned we guess she had been set alight with lighter fuel.
She was brought to us for emergency treatment and is being nursed back health.
July 2018: Her loving UK adopters have now taken her home, she is recovering with lots of love
