Story

Since moving to Muscat, Oman in August of 2016, my wife and I have taken in 2 stray cats and done all that we can to help the countless stray animals that wander the streets. The number of strays is continuing to rise, in addition to the fact that many animals are now being left to fend for themselves by owners who move on and simply leave them behind. Our local vet is playing their part by running their Trap, Neuter, Release programme (TNR) which involves volunteers capturing the strays, taking them in for neutering before releasing them again. There are obviously many costs involved, for both the vets and the volunteers, but in doing so they are minimising the risk of more helpless animals being subjected to a difficult life on the streets. We witnessed the terrible state of some of Muscat’s strays just yesterday when we picked up a stray cat who had been injured and left to starve. We had no option but to have him put to sleep. There was just nothing that could be done for him. It was a heartbreaking scenario but one that has led me to take action and to attempt to do more to help these defenceless animals. With your help we will continue to make use of the TNR programme and do all that we can to help save more animals in need. Thank you!

    Hi everyone, One of our regular strays had been showing signs of a cold for a while, which has now turned into full on cat flu. He appeared today in a really bad way. He's now with Muscat Vets where he's on a drip and having regular bursts in an oxygen tank. Over the next few days he'll also be having teeth removed due to mouth rot as well as being castrated. It's going to be a busy few days for him but we're hopeful that he'll come out of it OK! Please donate whatever you can to ease his suffering. Every little helps. Many thanks. Matt

    After a week at the vets, Tommy is now with us and is almost ready to move to his new Foster Home. He has had a few teeth removed, as well as some infected tissue from his inside cheek. He is on a mix of painkillers and antibiotics to help him get back to full strength and he seems to be responding well to the treatment. Thank you to everybody who kindly donated towards this little one's treatment. He now has a fighting chance and hopefully somebody here in Muscat will be able to offer him a permanent home.

    We picked up this little boy today whilst walking home. He has rotten teeth on one side of his mouth and an infection in his cheek. All this and he's only 6 weeks old. He's now with the vets in Muscat where he'll be staying for the next few days. This should hopefully give us enough time to find him a foster home so that we don't have to release him back out on to the street. If you think that you could donate to help out with the vet bills for this little one then please do. If not, please share the post and help us to do what we can. Thanks!
