Omg I love this 🐶💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

Some really sad news..sweet and tiny Cattus passed away this morning in her sleep. She came in very weak, dehydrated and malnourished.. Her body just couldn't handle anymore and give up....

She passed away at the vet clinic where she has been since 9 June.. She was abandoned with her sibling in a cactus near a friends house, a dog got to one kitten and killed it, and Cattus was thankfully rescued...but was too weak : (

We are so sorry sweet little girl...
Fly high and RIP.....

It is the end of another incredibly busy week.
We caught in total 29 cats and kittens this week
18 cats in Alte, 5 in Poco Novo, 6 in Messines.

If you have emailed us, and we havent replied, please bear with us, we will reply, at the latest after next week. We are still in the middle of the Alte project, and catching colony cats. No new projects have been taken on, but we have delayed a few which will start in the weeks ahead. We really cannot do it all by ourselves. We are NOT taking on new projects/not taking on new requests until further notice.

Thank you
