Story

In Azemmour, Morocco, (where I have a little house), there are simply too many cats. Most females suffer a constant cycle of reproduction and hunger. Kittens are born in the streets to malnourished mothers. Sadly, all too often, they lead short lives, dying alone from illness, starvation and dehydration. ERHAM - which in Arabic means 'take pity' - is a Moroccan based charity working to stop the suffering. We would like to hugely increase our sterilisation and treatment programme. Your donation will help us to do this - to put an end to this unnecessary suffering. We will be launching our new initiative on the 8th October with the "Meow festival"!

    Big thanks to everyone who has donated to our cause so far - I'm just back from Morocco where the sterilisation campaign has begun! Until April/May we will continue with female sterilisations by request - many people have cats in Azemmour (esp in their traditional roles as mousers) but can hardly afford to eat let alone sterilise their beloved cat. We are helping these people at the moment, as they can monitor their cats recovery properly.

    In May, when we start our big campaign on the streets we will have our 'recovery house' ready, and will have organised the importation a particular anesthetic to Morocco to simplify the process of sterilising street cats. The people are so appreciative - one man arrived at my house almost crying with a kitten in his arms. He was unable to find a home for it and not wanting to abandon the kitten to fend for itself, (which is the normal practise when the kitten are 4 -6 weeks old) he was at a loss.

    We helped him as he lived in 1 room, and his neighbours were complaining about the kittens, and of course we sterilised his cat companion. Thanks again for your donation! I'm keeping this page active until May, incase you know of any other kind Christmas donor - please do tell them about us!!
