Going on holiday to Fuerteventura ?

 

 

 

We have installed many cat cafés on the island to enable the cats to be fed and monitored but we don't have enough volunteers to provide food to every cafe each day, so some are reliant on the holiday makers kindness.  

 

If you are going to Fuerteventura for your holiday would you be prepared to look after a café while you are there? It would mean cleaning the cafe each day and keeping the food and water dishes topped up.

 

We would supply you with the cat food after you have arrived in Fuerteventura.

  Cat Café

 

  


Be Our Eyes & Ears !

 

As part of our policy we remove the tip of the left ear on all the cats we sterilise, this is done while the cats are under anaesthetic and causes no pain or discomfort to the cat. We have to do this to avoid catching them again and again, which would cause them unnecessary stress & trauma.

  

It always helps us to know how the homeless cats are doing, so any information you could provide us with would be useful. If you notice any sick or injured cats or cats that have not been sterilised (these will still have both ear tips) please let us know. We need details like:

  • Location of the cat (i.e.around apartment No. 200 of The Sunrise Hotel, Caleta)
  • What colour is the cat
  • What time of day you saw the cat & how often
  • What is wrong with the cat or maybe it just needs sterilising

We will do our best to follow up on the information you give us.

 


Do you live in Fuerteventura - can you help?

 

We are always looking for volunteers, here are just a few of the things we need.

 

Foster homes - we have many cats that need a safe and caring environment while they are getting better or waiting for a new home. How long it needs to be fostered for depends on its health and rehoming needs. We would provide all the equipment needed and cover all the expenses including vet bills.

 

Cat Cafés - Could you spare sometime each week to help us clean & provide food at a cat café. Even just 1 hour a week would make all the difference to the cats.

 

Market Stall - We would love to have a weekly or monthly stall in one of the local markets but need someone willing to help with this. This would be a good opportunity for us to promote the needs of the local strays and the work we do, plus hopefully it could raise a little in donations. If you have a car and some spare time, please get in touch with us. 

 

Picking up a sick or injured cat - Would you be able to go out and catch (or pick up, if friendly) a sick or injured cat. When we get a call about a cat in need of the vets it can be  heartbreaking if we don't have anyone able to do it. We need help from people that have a car and would be prepared to do this.

 

Accommodation needed!

Do you have an apartment, house or villa we could use for 1 week during one of our bi-annual campaigns. We need accommodation for the volunteer veterinary team.

Things you can do to help the cats while you are on holiday.

 

The feral cats have a different diet to the domestic cats and therefore need to be fed in a different way.

  • They should be given water to drink and NOT milk, as milk is too rich and may give them an upset stomach.

 

  • Ideally, they should be given tinned cat food, which can be bought from your local supermarket and cat biscuits. If you feed them dried food it is very important that you give the cats plenty of fresh water to drink.

 

  • They should be given small amounts of food, little and often, as they are not used to eating any great quantity at one time.
