What To Do If You See Cats or Kittens
- If you see a litter of very young kittens, please do not be tempted to pick them up or move them, their mother is probably nearby somewhere. She may leave them alone for a few hours at at time.
- If you do become concerned about a litter of kittens please see if there is a local animal welfare group on our emergency contact list here: https://greekcats.org.uk/contact-list/
They may be able to offer some help and advice. If you cannot see a contact for where you are staying please contact us by email at email@example.com
- If you do see a sick or injured cat you can take it to the nearest vet. If you cannot find a vet please contact the local animal welfare group if there is one using our emergency contact list: https://greekcats.org.uk/contact-list/
- Be careful where you feed the cats. They can be unwelcome in some restaurants and tavernas and other customers may not welcome their presence. This can lead to restaurant owners taking brutal action.
- Ask your travel rep or some of the locals where it might be acceptable to feed the strays. Some areas have specific feeding stations where the cats are fed. Or you can feed any leftover meat or fish to the strays in a quiet place where you may see them congregating such as the rubbish bins.
- If you would like to help to continue to feed the strays once your visit is over, you may want to think about buying some dry cat food and donating it the the local cat welfare group.
- Do remember that strays need water too, so please feel free to leave out some water for them.
- Please don’t give cats or kittens milk, as this can give them diarrhoea.
