After going on holiday in Crete, we were shocked and heartbroken to see the amount of abandoned and stray animals desperate for food and love. There are thousands of cats and dogs that beg outside restaurants for food, that are sick or injured, and that have no home to go back to each night. Animals are not neutered or cared for, meaning the numbers of unwanted cats and dogs are so high that many die of starvation, poisoning and neglect. Many tourists take pity on these animals and will feed them titbits whilst they are on holiday, however once the tourist season is over these animals have no way of obtaining enough food to survive.
Whilst we were away, we found a mother cat, Suki, and her two adorable kittens living as strays in a hedge behind our villa. We later found out these babies are just approximately 2 weeks old! We also found another kitten, Nugget, around 16 weeks old, alone crying under a hedge. All of these babies were strays, starving and malnourished, with no food, shelter or love, and there was no way we could fly home and leave them there!! Before coming home from our holiday, we took them to the vets to have them vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated, and also got them passports to fly them to England. We have found them a foster family in Crete until they are ready to fly to England and find a forever home. This is all costing a lot of money, not to mention the flights, transfers, food, neutering and further vet appointments needed to nurse these kittens to health.
We are asking you to find it in your hearts to donate anything you can, to help us cover these costs and bring these babies home to the UK. It costs just 2 euros to buy a box of cat biscuits which will feed them for a couple of days, so anything you can donate will really make a difference to their little lives. Any further money we manage to raise will go straight to rescuing and helping other abandoned and stray animals like these!!
Thank you so much for reading.
