Solo abandoned just before the gales

Now being throughly spoilt in the UK at Woodland Nook Cat Rescue

We have another little one needing a home He was found thrown in the middle of a busy road bewildered & crying rescued by a kind passer by who contacted us for help. He is coming to join Itzy, Bitzy & Witzy we are sadly lacking in inspiration so he is hence forth known as Mitzy! (now Solo) We have transport to the UK in June if anyone can find friends or relatives kind enough to give a home to any of these orphans.

Itzy, Witzy & Bitzy

So it begins….

The first of this year’s arrivals are here courtesy of a helpful human being placing 5 week old kittens still feeding from their Mother into a tied up feed sack thrown into a Chania refuse bin. A passer-by heard them screaming & climbed in to rescue them & kindly brought them to us.

Despite the usual dehydration & starvation they are very talkative (you can hear them the other end of the garden!) they love humans & are starting to play & we are weaning them early as they are so hungry.

Predictably they have mild cat flu & the usual parasites which we have already started treating including a hot bath & scrub with a toothbrush as they were filthy little beings!

Itzy (♂), Bitzy (♂) & Witzy (♀) need a loving home they will be vaccinated, neutered & micro-chipped.

If anyone has friends or relatives living in the UK, Netherlands or Switzerland we will pay for their care, veterinary bills, pet passports & microchips if the adopters can assist with travel costs (€70-€200 depending upon method of transport).

Aptera Cat Colony

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 Continue reading “Aptera Cat Colony”
