Furry nuggets begone!
After hand rearing from birth and eventually adopting these two boy pussy cats it was finally time this week to take them to my local vet in Peguera and do “the deed” and have them castrated. Being healthy cats they haven’t really seen much of the inside of a vet’s surgery so it was very funny indeed when Morris (grey tabby on the left) suddenly realised during the obligatory photo call that perhaps he was about to lose something quite important to him. Thank you to Riccardo Gigioli from Clinica Veterinaria Peguera for his great work. Riccardo is running his own castration scheme for cats which is funded through his affiliation to the Lyonness card scheme. You can ask for more details about it by calling him on 971 689 525.
If you are interested in bee keeping then get yourself up to Llubi on Saturday for the Honey Fair. Bernado (aka Mr Bee!) will be there and is a great source of information about bee keeping. Regular readers may recall an article about him earlier in the year about his bee keeping museum.
Steve Wood must be congratulated for his enormous contribution of blankets and heaters and other helpful equipment which he is currently distributing to many of the rescue centres around the island.
Kittens seeking homes
These two characters caught my eye recently, but no, we are not allowed any more cats. However if you are interested to adopt one then hop onto Facebook and check out the Pet Project Mallorca Facebook page for more information.
Every week Pet Project tries to help or re-house a homeless animal in Majorca. Pet Project is supported by the Majorca Daily Bulletin, the PR business Phoenix Media Mallorca and several professional and amateur writers and photographers around the island. You can get in touch with Pet Project at www.petprojectmallorca.com If you want to help with this column or send information then please do to firstname.lastname@example.org
