What do we do?
Volunteer feeders take turns feeding
the cats and cleaning twice daily; since we have less
than seven Feeders, some volunteers feed the cats on two or
more days a week.
cats are always fed a good meal each day. As an extra treat, visiting tourists
are very generous. We ask that our visitors don't bring chicken
with bones, as it is dangerous for the cats.
Additionally we purchase medicines, etc., to enable us to
give First Aid treatment when necessary (e.g. eye problems,
cuts, worming) and care for those cats and kittens which need
extra special attention. We are extremely appreciative of
any veterinary or other associations who would like to donate
supplies to us.
Local veterinary surgeons offer advice and provide expert
medical attention when required at a concessional rate. We
are very grateful to them.
Volunteers are also improving the facilities on the new
site itself; since we have moved our site, there is quite
a bit of new work to be done. We always love the help people
can give. We also continuously do gardening and general upkeep
of the site.
Of course, all of the Feeders and Helpers spend quite a
bit of time at the Sanctuary, just holding and loving
the cats. This is perhaps the largest reason for
the success of the Sanctuary, and for the health and well
being of the cats who live there.
Many times, just a few minutes of TLC from
a human will make the difference between a cat or kitten choosing
