£443raised of £200 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £443 to pay for the shortfall needed to fly beautiful Cyprus stray cat Dolly to her new home in England.

    Funded on Thursday, 19th April 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Dolly is a young stray cat from Protaras in Cyprus.

    I found her stumbling around on the seafront with other kittens. She clearly had a problem with her back legs and couldnt walk properly. This meant she would not be able to run away if she was, for instance, chased by a dog and so she would have been in danger there.

    I took her initially to the vet to find out what was wrong with her legs. The vet examined her and took xrays which showed her bones were ok, no old breaks, and he said it was probably neurological or maybe even mild cerebellar hypoplasia (wobbly cat syndrome). Other than her "back end wiggle" she was otherwise a beautiful healthy kitten.

    She was then put on medication in case it was an infection from a trauma or a bite.

    I decided to call her Dolly because she has the most unusual markings and she reminded me of a bag of Dolly mixture sweets - all different colours.

    Dolly is currently being fostered in Cyprus and over the weeks her back legs seem to have got a lot better. Only very occasionally can her little "wiggle" be noticed. She does however sometimes lie with her legs at a strange angle but she runs and plays so it clearly isnt bothering her and her legs have got much stronger since the day that I found her.

    Shortly after putting her photo on Facebook, a lady contacted me to say that she had been feeding her when she was on holiday in Protaras a few weeks earlier. A few weeks later we spoke again and the lady said she would like to adopt her :)

    We have some money towards her flight and passport costs but there is a shortfall of around £200 and we invite people to donate as soon as possible so that we can get Dolly flown back to UK and settled into her new furever home where she will be safe and loved.

    Please help her if you can. Your donation, no matter how small will be very much appreciated.

    Thank you

      Fantastic news! The shortfall has now been raised and the lady who is adopting Dolly has also sent her contribution. So we now have the total cost of her flight, documentation and flight box. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to help this beautiful girl to get to her new home. Thanks to you all Dolly will be flying to England on 4th April !! :)

      Good luck to Dolly. We brought over a straycat from Cyprus 18 months ago. She is a Calico called Phoebe and is a wonderful friend.
