Story

Agios Stefanos - or San Stefanos as it is often called - is a beautiful village situated in the North West area of Corfu. A fishing village, Agios Stefanos is also well known as a popular holiday destination and welcomes holidaymakers year after year during the summer months.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, this brings with it an animal community ranging from sheep to goats and not forgetting cats and dogs - many of which are the much loved pets owned by local inhabitants.

Of course there have always been a number of stray cats and dogs around and many have been fed and at times assisted by people living locally.

Over the last year a number of stray cats have 'moved themselves in' just behind the gates of a disused hotel and have caught the attention of summertime visitors to our village. Many of these visitors - although on holiday - could not resist the urge to help feed them and the cats certainly have enjoyed the attention.

Over time this cat community has increased as more kittens were born and the count to date is 17 and 4 kittens.. We know of course that female cats can produce several litters of kittens per year and in order to keep this under control, sterilization is important.

The aim is to raise funding for these cats to assist with both the Sterilization of the females and the continued feeding of these sweethearts over the winter months and beyond. I have negotiated a reduced cost per sterilization which is now 50 euros ( approx 46 GBP) per female cat.

It would also be wonderful of course to find these kitties their very own family, so if you are tempted - or if you know someone who would love to give one of these cats a home, then drop an email to : sanstefcats@yahoo.com

Thank you for taking an interest in our Stray Cat Support project and thank you especially for your continued support .

    During my trip home to UK I was very pleased to meet up with a friend of mine who is a Vet and who has donated a bag of some healthcare items for the stray cat community - including some cat wormer. A very important medicine to help maintain good health, this will eradicate worms from their system which can be problematic if untreated. They will require treatment periodically during the coming months so I'm very grateful for this donation which will be a big help. x

    As 2018 is underway and we begin a new year, I would like to take the opportunity to express my thanks to you all for your kindness and generosity in supporting the stray cats of San Stefanos. And so our task continues for another year and I hope we can continue to care for them all for as long as they need us. It is my hope also that homes may be found for some this year. Thank you once again for your generous donations and your support. This is a worthy cause which has been made even more possible with your help!

I came to the island early 2004 and met my first stray cat who came calling at my door in October of that year.This continued - many just left at my home & surrounding area. Caring for the stray cat community is a very special task & I will continue to help them as much as I can
