Story

I am hoping that my Facebook friends and the people who love  Pawz for Thought will donate even just a small amount of money to help me feed the cats in Lindos, Rhodes, Greece and take much needed medical supplies to them during my holiday at the end of October. 

Being the 'crazy cat lady' of Pawz for Thought means that when I am on holiday in Greece, I usually find a holiday cat within hours of arriving (or they find me!) In Rhodes last October, we got our first holiday cat within 5 minutes! She jumped through our window and moved in! We were surprised to see the tip of her ear was gone, indicating she was neutered. We thought she must be a pet, but later that day, another male cat turned up, also neutered.  As we walked around Lindos, there were more and more cats that had ear tips missing. They looked fit and healthy and there were very few kittens around.  I remember the days when Lindos was full of very ill looking cats and kittens that could hardly see. 

We found out that it was due to the work of the Greek Cat Welfare Society.  They have a trap, neuter, return programme and also run feeding stations in resorts. I am off to Rhodes again at the end of October and want to do something while I am there to help. I am going to buy some much needed medical supplies to take with me from my own savings and Pawz for Thought are also going to buy some medical supplies too as their donation. I  will also be buying food while I am there and would be grateful if you could donate even just a small amount of money to help feed a few cats, even £1 would contribute. The money is all going into Pawz for Thought's bank account first (so it is all above board and not going into my personal bank account) and then I will be given the funds that I raise from the treasurer to take with me to Greece.  

GCWS do a fantastic job keeping their numbers down and improving their health, improving the lives of hundreds of cats. Pawz for Thought has a firm neutering policy and neutering over 50 feral cats in Sunderland was one of the first things the charity did, so it is wonderful to see that the Greek cats are getting help too.  Greece wouldn't be Greece without its cats and I adore the country and its culture - I rarely holiday anywhere else!!! For the last 23 years I have seen so many disadvantages cats but at least in some places, they are now being looked after. Can you help?
