**UPDATE** Following this mornings post on the 2 kittens someone recognised them having seen them with their mother on a previous occasion not far from where they appeared to have been abandoned. Now safely REUNITED It’s very commendable that people keep an eye out on the cats but if you see what appears to be abandoned kittens observe them for a while from a distance until you are sure the mother is not around. Cats often leave their kittens to go in search of food.
2 very healthy kittens dumped at the boatyard. Their mother has taken very good care of them who will now be out there going crazy trying to find her babies

We said a sad goodbye to Katie who has returned to the UK after volunteering for 3 weeks, Thank you for everything Katie and enjoy Australia, hope to see you again very soon. Nina has returned with her friend Wanja, and welcome Emma glad to see Ghandi was first to greet you, he never lets us down. John and Bev thank you for collecting loose change over the summer and for donating it to the Skiathos Cats
We have received sad news that the charity helping Skiathos Cat Welfare and other charities with regular food and non food donations is no longer able to help as their supplier has stopped. Therefore we are urgently looking into other options as this is one of our life lines to keep the charity going. We might be able to sign up with a charity in Belgium to get food and non food items which would be great. The only problem is how to get the items from Belgium to The Netherlands so it can be transported to Greece. Do you have a transport company that would be willing to help us a few times a year to get pallets from Mol, Belgium to Rotterdam, The Netherlands? Do you know companies that might be willing to help? Can you help pay to pay for the transport? Or do you have other ideas? Please get..
Thank you WVS for helping the animals worldwide

WOW what can we say. Incredible hard work and dedication by everyone. UK Vet Sara Creech and vet nurse Claire Shepherd, have worked every day for many hours nonstop, rarely stopping for lunch. This is their 2nd visit this year to Skiathos we are very much looking forward for the next visit. Sara and Claire arrived, thanks Areti at Mouria Hotel for the room and the team on the ground put their plans into action. Following up locations we have received from emails for unneutered cats along with areas we are already aware of, sadly if these cats are not there at the time the volunteer goes we don’t have time to return, we have to trap as many cats as we can and with many other locations we have to move on to the next and the next. The team have been all over the Island, thanks to Maia, Aggelos,..
At last… Sara, Claire, Sue and Kitty and of course Marcel take a well earned few hours at the beach
EVERYONE is working so hard on the neutering full report including numbers will be at the end of the week…Its going amazingly well due to the hard work and dedicated cat lovers hitting the ground running…. There is still the ” normal” everyday tasks taking care of the cats and kittens in Skiathos

The sad messages continue, “ I am one of the last guests in this accommodation and the owner has said once we leave they close and there is no one here, what will happen to the cats “ It’s a question we find difficult to answer. The older stronger ones will, if lucky find food sadly many will not. There are mother cats with kittens teaching them the joyous life of being a stray by showing them how to scavenge in bins. This beautiful Island has a very sad side, if only more of the people that call this home would extend their hospitality towards the many stray cats. If those folk would spend less time moaning about how many stray cats there are and actually gave a little of their time to join a common cause then maybe just maybe September would not be the saddest month of the season and..
When we said a sad goodbye to Cas on Thursday there was also a very special cat on board the flight. Darling blind cat Nancy. Steven and Sharon were there waiting in the Netherlands to be reunited with Nancy. One special couple for a very special, very lucky Skiathos cat. Nancy, you will have a fantastic life in the UK, Love you, miss you, but know you will be very happy,cherished and adored xx
