Cat Collaborations

by petprojectmallorca

In August Arc Animales received an email from an elderly couple in Pollensa who had a ‘kitten saturation’ situation and desperately need their help!

They had contacted both Pollensa and Alcudia rescue centres who said they were too full to take any.

It seems the couple had started feeding three female abandoned cats late last year. Then the inevitable happened – first lot of kittens were born on the 6th March and the second on the 31st March (on their terrace) then another litter was born in July somewhere on the finca. They had been feeding them all and got themselves into a situation where they could not cope, in particular financially: in all there were 23 cats and kittens.

In addition the couple were in the procees of selling their house and moving back to the UK but they were desperate that the cats and kittens find new homes and be safe.

There were three adult females (needing castration) 14 older kittens from the 1st and 31st of March (needing castration) (Four of which they would keep themselves)

6 young kittens which had only just started eating solid kitten food (castration will be needed later). This meant that there were three adult cats, nine older kittens of around 6 months and 6 young kittens that needed rehoming. It also meant there were sixteen cats that needed castrating immediately and seven would need castrating in a matter of months.

Arc Animales got in touch with Baldea (who were featured a couple of weeks ago in Pet Project) and working with Ana Aranda Lindsay it was arranged for the cats and older kittens to be castrated in the Baldea mobile vet unit.

17 cats and kittens have been castrated. It’s been a fantastic team effort between Baldea, Katzenzuflucht and Arc Animales.

Arc Animales are now looking for forever homes for the six little kittens – growing by the minute – that were too young to castrate. There are four little boys, Micah, Sima, Malin, Sujay and two girls, Pearl and Pippa. They are all between 8 and 12 weeks old.

Please spread the word about these kittens whose start in life was not the best but, with your help, their futures could be.

Furry nuggets begone!

by petprojectmallorca

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.

She’s a lady, not a tramp

by petprojectmallorca

By Vicki McLeod

10583802_338598186296813_1586679531447719739_nThis week in Pet Project we have undertaken a little cat rescuing of our own. Living underneath a container at the site of one of our clients’ business is this little cutie, and two of her siblings. We’re not sure of the sex of the other two cats as they are still quite timid, but this little girl is quite friendly. She seeks out cuddles and strokes, and has become so familiar with the people working around her that she was easily caught by Pet Project and taken to the good people at Calvia Vet in Santa Ponsa. Vet Anna Pink and her husband Juan treated the pussy cat, they declared that she was quite well although she has not as yet been tested for any viruses. She was spayed and then released back to where she came from. It is completely possible that this kitten, who Anna thinks is about three months old, could be adopted. She’s certainly got the loving streak in her and we think would fit in well once she had got used to her new family so if you are interested to give this sweet cat a home then get in touch by emailing petprojectmallorca@gmail.com or calling 649 090 886.

Puppy Power!

by petprojectmallorca

What a bunch of cuties! It’s not just kitten season in Majorca but puppy time as well and the refuges around the island are dealing with a big increase in abandoned animals. Merche and her helpers in Llucmajor are in charge of this group of beautiful pooches which have all been abandoned and are currently in their care. If you are interested in any of them then please get in touch with Merche via email on  asociacionanimalistallucmajor@gmail.com or call 673 37 63 82. The refuge is open to the public on Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to midday and on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.

The photos are all taken by the super photographer Shane Green (www.shanegreenphotography.com). He was asking the names of the pups and Pequito at the refuge was naming them on the spot! They’re all about 3 months old. The others: Pucca, is about 6 months old and female, and Linda is about a year old, female and quite shy and retiring.

Kitten Update.

Both Morrison and Sainsbury are doing well and are eating (A LOT). They will be ready for adoption in about a month. If you are searching for a kitten to adopt there are a lot on offer at Cat & Kitten in El Toro. You can get in touch with them via Pet Project.

It’s cat and kitten time again!

by petprojectmallorca

Well, kitten season is well and truly upon us. Sadly this year there Babies everywhere! Photo by Cati Salva have been many many reports of newly born kittens being found abandoned in rubbish bins. Of course, some of these poor little things are not going to survive, but volunteers all around the island are trying to bottle feed the ones who are found and this requires 24 hour care and commitment.

If you are able to volunteer to help raise some newly born kittens then you can get in touch with us at Pet Project and we can forward your offers on to the appropriate refuges. If you want to help but don’t think you can fulfil the demanding role of adoptive parent, then you can do that by donating kitten milk to the local refuges. Nicky at Cat and Kitten Rescue has made an appeal saying:  “We urgently need kitten milk for these poor newborn kittens that are being handed in to us, These kittens need feeding every 2 hours day and night and we have kind people all over the island willing to help to bottlefeed but the milk that is needed is special kitten milk which is bought from vets and good pet stores, kittens cannot drink the same milk as we do. Is anyone willing to donate a box of kitten milk to feed these little ones and give them a chance of survival after such a horrendous start in life.  Today we have rescued 19 kittens , all newborn, all now safely in the hands of people that can help them , but we need help to enable us to do this work, tomorrow and the coming weeks will be more kittens handed in.  One box of milk will make all the difference, please donate and help.” You can do this by leaving kitten milk at the Salvation Army at Son Caliu or take it to your local refuges to be used there as well.

Also in this week’s Pet Project I would like to introduce to you another hard working cat lover, Tessy Myncke, who is championing the cause of the many, many cats which are left at refuges and never get homed.

“I thought it would be maybe interesting to dedicate this time in your section to cats that are waiting in the animal shelters a very long time for a chance to be adopted. It is so terrible and sad to see all these beautiful, handsome and sweet cats behind bars. Some of them for years and years…

Timothy

“Timothy is a beautiful boy that was left at the SPAP and is suffering so much, as he always has lived in a house. He deserves so much to be adopted by a good family.

This is Dalton, he’s such a sweet and lovely cat that people left in the street. He is now also in a “cage” in the SPAP waiting that somebody “put his eyes” on him and take him home. You can see the fear and desperation in his eyes.

Tessy with Amon

And this is AMON, the same sad story as almost all the cats living in cages. A marvellous “big boy” (around 7 kilos….) he has also been abandoned.

Pussycat, pussycat

by petprojectmallorca

By Vicki McLeod

Sometimes you can think that the human race are just about the meanest bunch you will ever come across and that really the only friends you should try to cultivate are the four legged furry type, and then you meet someone like Nicky Morgan and the rest of the gang from the Cat and Kitten Rescue Group and you realise perhaps you’ll give Homo Sapiens a second chance. Despite busy and demanding work and personal lives the volunteers at Cat and Kitten give up a large chunk of their time to caring for abandoned felines in Majorca. And they do a great job.1607096_654790964567707_976461568_n

I went to visit Nicky at her home in El Toro where she constantly has a batch of “babies”. Nicky is well known in the animal rescue circles as a “mummy” to tiny kittens and is skilled and knowledgeable when it comes to rearing by hand. Look in her cupboards and you will find stacks of veterinary and health supplies for her little charges. She has been known to take the kittens with her to work to make sure they are getting their scheduled feeds on time, and that also means around the clock, so there’s no slacking off even when it is 4am. “I was looking on the Natura Parc website when I saw these two little babies. They weren’t doing very well there, and I could see that they needed to be somewhere warm and dry so I went and got them, “said Nicky, indicating her two youngest house guests. “When they first arrived they were very frightened and wouldn’t come near me, but they soon settled in and now they are doing very well.” If you look closely at the photos you will see that one of them really does have a jumper on!

1606881_654790714567732_839111595_n

“Well, she was so poorly that she needed extra help to keep warm”. By the time of printing it’s quite likely that at least one of these lovely cats will have already been adopted but if you would like to contact Nicky about them or any of the other kittens that she is fostering then call: 699 532 267.

Nicky is supported by her local vet surgery in Clinica Veterinaria El Toro and she has nothing but the highest of praise for Asuncion Jaime Servera. “Together we always manage to sort out the babies,” she says, “they are so kind to me and the kittens there.”  Of course fund raising is an important 1546380_654790904567713_1569487249_nelement for the group’s survival and they have received plenty of help from the Majorca Daily Bulletin agent Jaquie Buttle who sponsors the group’s marketing materials and posters. “Jaquie is brilliant,” said Nicky, “She’s done so much for us; she does all of our printing and laminating. We couldn’t do without her!”

If you would like to support the Cat and Kitten Rescue group there will be a Quiz night at Aroma in El Toro on February 15th There will be a raffle, food and fun. Get a group together with a minimum of three and a maximum of six per team. It’s 2.50€ per person to enter.  If you are a Facebook user then please LIKE Pet Project Mallorca to keep up to date with news and you will find a link to the Cat and Kitten group there if you would like to volunteer to help them.

Bingo! Just another street cat (not).

by petprojectmallorca

By Vicki McLeod

Bingo2 It was a year ago, give or take a week, when I was looking through the Mallorca animal Facebook groups to see if there was any news I could use for the Pet Project column when my eye fell upon this lively looking kitten. Her alert expression made me laugh out loud, and somewhere inside me I knew that I was going to adopt her. This was in direct opposition to the whole point of Pet Project: I had started the project earlier in the year as my response to the growing problem of abandoned animals in Majorca. I simply couldn’t adopt them all but I wanted to help, I wanted to find a way to get those animals to people who would love them and look after them. I couldn’t bear the sight of yet another dejected dog dumped at the gates of Son Reus for whatever reason, and I knew that if you had better photos of the animals that they were more likely to be adopted. The first ever Pet Project column was inspired by Cati Salvo who is a very talented amateur photographer (thanks should also go to the amazing professional photographers that have given their time over the past year including: Karl Grant, Oliver Neilson, and Samantha Hemsley, and I am very happy to say that this list is soon to be joined by more, thank you). Cati had taken a wonderful photo of a cat that needed a home, and although I couldn’t offer that animal a home at the time, I was inspired to help him. So I asked the Majorca Daily Bulletin for their support, happily they agreed and they have patiently given Pet Project a space in their newspaper every Friday for almost 18 months now; thank you to Jason, Humphrey, Christina and the rest of the MDB team. Between us so far we have homed several dogs and cats, and have given publicity and helped with fundraising for a variety of causes around the island as well.

I did adopt the kitten. I rang up the person who had posted the photo in Facebook and arranged to meet them on a road in Palma. I literally took delivery of this little scrap of fur outside of a Bingo hall. And that is how she got her name. Bingo. A yearBingo on and she delights me every day with her quirky personality. Even though she was a feral cat born in the house of man who had Diogenes syndrome (a hoarder to you and I) she settled right in to our house and got on very well with our other pets. The moral of this story? Sometimes you have to follow your heart. If you see an animal in need and you can help, then please do.

Coming up this weekend on Saturday July 20th there is a fundraising party to help at the CEIP Miquel Duran i Saurina (check with the organisers for the full address). It is to help fill the coffers for a sterilisation project for stray and feral street cats (just like my beloved Bingo who started off as just another street cat). The sterilisation project is very important as it is absolutely the best way to prevent disease and over population of cats. Adult tickets are 10€ and include a vegetarian buffet and children’s tickets (under 12 years) are 5€. The price includes dinner, a drink and dessert. There will be live music and entertainment for children as well, including face painting  by the lovely Marion Donaque. If you can’t make it to the event then please do think of making a donation to the cause. You can get more information about the party at www.facebook.com/talldorella.mallorca.

If you want to support Pet Project as it grows then please join us on Twitter at @petprojectmallo, on Facebook (search Pet Project Mallorca) or on the web at www.petprojectmallorca.com. Please keep reading the column every week in the MDB and show your friends!

Tigger seeks home!

by petprojectmallorca

TiggerThis handsome chilled-out tabby cat is Tigger, and he urgently needs re-homing, because his owners are returning to the UK for health reasons – and their new rented home there does not allow pets.  Much to their surprise, the couple has sold their home on Mallorca very quickly and have to vacate it by the end of the month. Along with the stress of moving at short notice, and health concerns, they have the anxiety of trying to find a new home for their feline friend. As often happens here on the island, Tigger adopted them, when he decided that he liked the garden of their home near Calas de Mallorca. He’s been with them for just under four years, and was just a young cat when he arrived. He’s been neutered, has just had his annual vaccinations, and is in good health.

Although he lives outdoors, Tigger is never far from the house – usually snoozing under a bush – and loves human company. He enjoys being stroked and fussed, and will happily jump onto an available lap if someone’s sitting outside – but he is not used to children. Described as a ‘loyal companion’, he likes to be close by when anyone is in the garden. He waits patiently at the door each morning for his breakfast, and returns in the evening for his dinner. Tigger’s ‘owners’ live on a small development of holiday homes and, unfortunately, they have no neighbours in full-time residence who could take on their much-loved companion. The new owners of their home will be staying here for holidays only.

Could you give Tigger a loving home? If so, you’ll be gaining a loyal companion – and reducing the stress that his owners are currently going through. You can contact them on 971 833 733
or email gillcwll@msn.com

Spay Shuttle! (the mobile vet clinic)

A repurposed ambulance!Simple as ABC: Animal Birth Control.  A rather familiar looking vehicle pulled up outside of Natura Parc refuge recently and proceeded to neuter some of the residents of the pound. Sheridan Conisbee from Dogs For U was so excited about this new initiative that the organisation took on Lenny and Basil after they had been neutered to show their support to the new idea. This is what she had to say about the project from the animal rescue and rights group BALDEA.

Basil

Basil

“Maxi Lange of BALDEA who attended all day (phew, very hot and tiring) told me that the mobile clinic was once an ambulance from IB Salut, the Government´s health service, which was given to them for use as a Mobile Vet Clinic.  With donated funds, BALDEA kitted it out to the standard demanded by the Veterinary authorities, and with signage on the outside saying “Sterilisation Unit for Abandoned Animals”. It is used when funds allow to neuter feral cats and dogs from shelters, rescuers, refugios, etc.  It is not for cats & dogs privately owned already.

Lenny

Lenny

“The case for pre-adoption neutering: I reckon it´s in the interest of the wider animal welfare community on the island and especially dog & cat rescuers to get behind this and show support for a pre-adoption neutering policy at all pounds on the island.  We should be demanding it.   It´s simple: the cost of pre-adoption neutering can be covered by an increased adoption fee, hence the shelters themselves wouldn´t be losing financially.

Inside the mobile clinic“Looking outside Mallorca for statistical evidence, since California mandated sterilisation of shelter dogs before adoption in 1998, the numbers of dogs killed in California shelters has fallen by 22% (Source: Animal People News, investigative journalism).  If Mallorca´s municipal and private pounds could adopt this approach and lead the way for neutering to become the accepted norm amongst the island´s dog owners, lots of lovable dogs like Lenny and Basil wouldn´t be having to take their last walk!”

To keep this running, BALDEA are desperately in need of funds for equipment and supplies.

How you can help

·         Write to your pound telling them of your support for increased adoption fees if they introduce neutering.

·         Donate generously for BALDEA´s mobile clinic.  This marvellous motor is in dire need of investment in a Gas Anaesthetic Machine to facilitate sterilizations, safely and quickly.  It also needs funds for much-needed supplies, including dog and cat spay sets and suture material.  You can go to http://www.baldea.org for more information.

Lenny and Basil are both looking for permanent homes, so please do contact Sheridan at http://www.dogsforu.org for more information.

Esporles volunteers needed!

There is a “no kill” dog shelter in Esporles where they take in rescue and care for dogs until they are able to find them homes.  But they constantly have a full house being that there is always another dog to rescue, as another gets a home.  They are very short on “roll your sleeves up” volunteers.  People wh want to clean up, feed and give love to all the dogs.  Certainly they need help walking them too, but at the moment they are desperate for help with the nitty gritty on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.  You can find more information here www.amicsanimalsesporles.org or contact 680455922 or 617 60 50 17 and tell them you want to lend a hand.

Kittens continue . . .

If you are interested to adopt a kitten, and there are plenty around at the moment, get in touch with your local shelter as they will help you with the process of making sure you have a healthy animal that is ready to start their new life with a new family. You can find a list of the shelters on the Pet Project website.

It’s kitten time!

by petprojectmallorca

untitled-5106

Bottle feeding is a round the clock task.

kittens

It is important to isolate the rescued cats from any of your other pets.

 

It’s that time of year when animal rescue centres become inundated with abandoned kittens. If you want to help by fostering or hand rearing any kittens or if you find some or a mother cat about to give birth then read on for some advice from a very experienced “Cat Lady” Cati Salva.

“If you see kittens inside a box next to a rubbish bin it’s clear that they have been abandoned. It is not so clear if you find them somewhere odd (a plant pot, or in the middle of the street). In this case I advise people to do this:

1) Don’t ever touch them. It could happen that the mum is moving them from one place to another and if they catch your scent some mother cats will reject their babies.

2) Watch from a distance. Stay around somewhere where you can see the kittens but are not scaring the mum in case she comes back for her kittens.

3) If you don’t see any adult cat around in about 30 minutes to an hour (depending on how busy the area is) then yes, you may go ahead and take them because the mum is most likely not coming back for them. Something might have happened or not, but a baby cat can’t stay for long without the warmth of its mother.

“If you take them home you have to keep them separate from your other cats if you happen to have any. This is extremely important. Even if they seem healthy they could have a stomach bug or some other ailments and you need to protect both your own animals and the babies.

“Things vary from caring for a four month old kitten or a new born. The older kittens will have wide open eyes, sharp teeth and be quite mobile creatures. They will most likely be eating by themselves. You can soak some dry cat biscuits in water and see if they will eat. Younger kittens need to be bottle fed. Their eyes will be open at 15 days of age but they won’t be able to move around very easily. If you are unsure as to the age of the kittens then take a visit to a vet to make sure.

“If you are bottle feeding kittens the most important thing is to keep them warm. Until they are a bit older they can’t control their body temperature so they have to have blankets. I usually use one of those electrical pillows on a low setting to keep them warm enough (be sure you’re not burning them of course!). Make sure the electrical cable is tucked away and put a cloth on top of the device to avoid warm plastic on their skin.

“Another very important thing is: no, cats can’t drink cows’ milk! Not even lactose free cows’ milk. They have to have special cat milk which can be bought at the vets and most pet shops. There are a lot of brands and it doesn’t matter which one you chose as long as you don’t change it once you have started. Baby stomachs are quite delicate and sudden feeding changes may cause diarrhoea and subsequent dehydration.

“To feed them, prepare the formula as indicated and use a baby cat bottle. Some cats don’t latch on to bottles at first, so you have to be persistent and patient. Sometimes they can’t get the milk out, so you may squeeze the tip a bit (or make the hole slightly bigger) so they get to taste one or two drops and get motivated to suck themselves. Some other cats don’t like bottles and people feed them with small (needle free) syringes, but this is dangerous as you could accidentally place milk into their lungs. They should never be placed belly up like human babies It is ideal if they can eat on their paws in a hard surface (you can put a blanket in between). Just think about how the kittens would feed from their mums: that’s the ideal position. After their meal the babies need to be stimulated to urinate and defecate.  If they were with mum then she would usually lick their bottoms. You don’t have to do that! Instead you could use a piece of wet, mildly warm gauze and wipe the area.

“You should expect them to be hungry every 2 to 3 hours at first. Yes, it’s just like having a human baby and can be super tiring work. You can try to make the “night feeds” a bit more substantial by making a slightly thicker formula, but don’t overdo it. The kittens may need bottle feeding up until around six weeks of age. Sometimes they eat at four weeks, but some others don’t. Some vets advise to give the kittens chamomile between feeds and others tell you to prepare the formula with chamomile instead of water. That is completely up to you.

“If you can’t be in charge of the feedings because you work, ask your local shelter if they know of anyone that could. They can’t take them into shelters because most of them are not open 24 hours a day, but sometimes they know volunteers that can take them home. You can ask at your local vet too, or even on Facebook groups like “Cat and kitten…” and “Furry friends…” Or get in touch with Nicky Morgan, pictured at The Kitten House on Facebook.
