Hi there Skiathos Cat lovers. We are 3 of the 7 blind cats currently in the care of the charity. We are Greg, Dave and BB, nice to meet you all. We know we are not cute kittens and we have special needs, but we think we are special as we are all blind. Skiathos Cat Welfare gave us a chance and now we have been given another. We have been given the opportunity to go to a new place. The best way we can describe it is “ A luxury half way Hotel to a new home” You see this lovely place in Belgium has offered us a luxury suite, a place to feel safe, a place where we can showcase how special we are, they will help us find our forever home. Check out our new place. This is Villa Vagebond https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WL8aA5VPwSs&feature=youtu.be Here we will be cared for, be safe and warm and this lovely hotel will help us to find us our forever home. We are part way to our half way hotel, you see we need €400 for the 3 of us to travel. Can anyone spare a little to get us our ticket ?? If you can donate a €1 it will buy us 1 kilometres of our journey we could start to pack our cases. https://www.freewebstore.org/skiathos-cat-welfare-gift-shop/Buy_a_KM_to_get_blind_cats_BB,_Dave_and_Greg_to_Belgium/p3175327_18337937.aspx Thank you

Great team work…Thank you

Tony and Louise, lovely friends, regular Skiathos summer visitors have arrived for their first out of season visit and are both very kindly volunteering to help Sharon and the cats. Drama on day 1 This 8-week-old, very healthy male kitten which was rescued by volunteer Mary under a drum which holds up the boats in the boatyard after she heard the kitten crying for hours. She found a helpful Greek man to help locate the kitten. The Greek man found lots of wooden wedges found another drum and lifted the boat inch by inch to get the kitten out. Neither of them had any idea how the kitten got there, and he is still traumatised by his ordeal. We have called him Drummer, can’t believe how scared he still is. I’m sure with regular cuddles from you both, his fear with subside. Welcome Tony and Louise its great to have you here.
One of many…all gorgeous…all deserving of a home of their own…
Good Morning Cat Lovers everywhere. I wanted to give you an update of where we are at with regards to obtaining land. The Municipality don’t own any land that we could move to. We have looked at several plots to purchase but they are so expensive, these are not plots with any view, which normally command a huge price tag, but one we saw was €70,000. We are now looking at land to rent as well. This in itself is not easy because of the need to put semi-permanent structures to house the cats plus many other things. We are continually looking at every option possible, the adoption team are working hard to get new homes for some of the cats, including the vulnerable blind cats. There is lots of fundraising going on, everyone’s support in everything you all are doing and supporting is amazing. We continually source everything to give the Skiathos Cats a future. Thank you for being there with us. https://www.youcaring.com/skiathoscatwelfareassociation-1022903
