This is somewhat of a personal post, because Twinkle Trust Animal Aid is a huge part of mine and many others lives.It’s also a very difficult post, it’s hard to put into words how I feel.
There is no other option and Twinkle will be reverting back to how we first began helping the cats of Fuerteventura 27 years ago, in these years over 27,000+ cats and kittens have been helped by Twinkle.
Our hope and plan is to continue to carry out feral cat neutering campaigns when volunteers & funds allow and of course we will keep and continue maintaining and providing fresh dry food and water at all the cat cafés that are already installed, thanks to the devoted volunteers we already have here in Fuerteventura.
 
If support and donations are available then Twinkle will continue to try and help with emergency veterinary assistance and medical treatment for the homeless cats if someone with a car is able to step in and help get a homeless sick or injured cat or kitten to one of the vet clinics we work with, with the usual prior authorisation from Jenny of Twinkle to the clinic.
I cherish the moments of every animal we’ve helped, and every kindness I’ve seen from people that have the least to offer but give their gentle caring touch to those that have needed it or loving homes to help a voiceless creature.
 
You are some of the most amazing, wonderful people that I’ve been privileged to know. Too many to mention individually. I’m used to dealing with stress, and then more stress, tears and then more tears. I’m used to dealing with financial instability, shortage of physical help and the emotional highs and lows that tear you apart.
Now because of physical illness, lack of UK volunteers and lack of funds, it means changes must be made, we can no longer have a permanent base in Fuerteventura.
We at Twinkle have been blessed to have the most amazing friends, supporters and volunteers, who’s compassion,
kindness, generosity, incredible hard work and selfless dedication have amazed and humbled me, their friendship from many of them have held true, some for as long as 3 decades of Twinkling, without you all we could not have got this far.
Thank you each and everyone.

Before and after photos below. A massive, massive thanks to Jo and Tracey for coming to our aid last week. During the heavy rain we had recently our foster cages leaked and flooded so much it was not fit for purpose. Our poor kitts and cats were soaked and cold. Jo and Tracey came just days later and worked so hard for 2 days free of charge to replace and repair plus improve the guttering problems. It’s cost slightly over €340 in material to carry this out in one side of our foster area, when funds permit we will try and repair the rest of this area and improve the drainage. But this will be a long way off, our bank balance is empty and our vets bills are so high it scares me. We are not a sanctuary but do have sick, injured and needy fluffs that need our help until a they can either be retuned to their original area or homed ( but I have to say my faith in homing on this island is lost, so many abandoned or returned adopted cats over the last 2 years). When will some people get that pets are family no matter what

We have had to say goodbye to our darling Koki.He was the most loyal, brave little soldier I think I will ever know.

 

He always loved comforting our new kittens, nudging his way in and waking me up between kitten feds whenever the babies cried for feeding and was the best big brother to our other doggie Peanut.

 

An answer to a question we've been asked many times regarding the costs incurred by us for neutering

This is not a straight forward answer but we hope this is enough to give you a clear guide.

Prices vary at each clinic, the more we neuter at some clinics the more discount we receive.

We use 4 different clinics depending on the cats condition, location of the cats, and location of the volunteer or trappers. For neutering, on average we pay €75 per female and €55 per male, which includes flea and worming for every cat.

 

We are regularly paying chunks off the bills but every week we have more cats that need our help.
