Between 10 and 11 January a two days neutering session of 26 stray animals of the Municipality of Chania was successfully completed by the vet Melanie Stehle member of the association Arche Noah Kreta e.V. : 19 female and 2 male stray cats and 5 female stray dogs from various areas of Chania, where it is a fact that the problem is intense because of the continuous abandonment and uncontrolled breeding, in particular from the areas of Agia, Perivolia, Pasakaki, Nerokourou, Chrisopigi, Akrotiri, Kounoupidiana and from the center of the city.
… half of them still needing homes! We took in a litter of seven going blind, dying of diarrhoea. 6 boys and one poor little girl! After weeks of tests & treatment all of them are now fit and healthy eating like mad desperate for homes. Various shades of gingers & one sweet tabby boy calling on you for help. We need help to pay their vet bills, vaccinate them & find them homes.
This week has been distressing for vets, volunteers & cats. We are appealing for help with three severely disabled cats. Their stories are depressing and horrific, the time and energy to nurse them intense but we see spirit and the will to live in all three.
Warning: there are distressing images in this post
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.
