            We took 60 samples off 20 cats it went really well. Parasites are endemic and the heat makes it worse, homeopathic/alternative meds rarely work in our experience. Please refer to our info sheet (link below), the only thing we find works for ear mites is stronghold, monthly April to Nov. We use a regime and add differing wormers in addition to the stronghold as tapeworm is a real pain

                Our recent arrival thrown over a wall left to die of dehydration & starvation; this little one we suspect now has brain damage possibly from the lack of food & fluids she may not make it.

                We, our volunteers currently struggle to hand feed & accommodate 9 bottle feeding kittens, 2 abandoned litters discarded in building sites, bins & tossed over garden walls with various elderly/injured cats abandoned left to their fate.

                We have to ask anyone of any nationality callous enough to leave kittens in bins & bags if local animal welfare organisations cannot accept them use your common sense & humanity:
                TAKE THEM TO A VET.

                Those who think the alleged ‘Greek way’ not neutering is acceptable study these pictures well.

                    This is a great big thank you to all who donated towards the rescue kitten’s travel
                    THEY MADE IT Thursday! Mavro, Mousey, Basil, Mittens & Lulu have reached the care of Woodland Nook Rescue in Derby courtesy of Jane & Paul’s hard work in re homing our cats & kittens.
                    Joint efforts from incredible people; our vets, foster parents, volunteers & animal welfare colleagues also including David who kindly escorted & cared for cats on the journey.
                    Thanks to MIRTOS our last kitten Erasmus flew out to his new home in Holland this weekend.

                        There are so many variables it changes every year sometimes month to month UK is one of the most difficult & expensive in Europe. Many airlines will not allow you to book pets in yourself last year all our UK transfers had to be booked onto flights by an approved UK pet travel company charter airlines would not deal with individuals.

                        IATA & UK DEFRA rules can be argued at check in till you go blue but if your cat carrier is the wrong dimensions for the airline or check in staff your pet will be left standing in departures.

                        Many successfully go it alone but we also know of those who have been refused check in with their cats stranded or have made it through check in with incorrect passports only to have their pet impounded on arrival in the UK resulting in a 21 day quarantine bill.

                            I would not advise buying anything until you know the carrier & their requirements as they all vary.

                            Travel this time of year is virtually impossible by air as outside charter flights British Airways only on average £800-£1,000 per cat.

                            You cannot book yourself an accredited DEFRA animal courier company in the UK must be used to book flying to an accredited UK airport.

                            You must also have the approved paperwork stamped by the KEP office otherwise Iraklio airport will refuse check in for UK flights.

                            We have other cheaper, reliable safe methods we use to transport our rescue cats/kittens if you want assistance send a PM.
                            Good luck!

                                I have sent you a PM there is nowhere for cats to go no shelters on Crete only volunteers & Animal Welfare Organisations overwhelmed with cats/kittens.

                                All  save their resources for the sick, injured & orphan kittens once you feed them & take them in they are yours!

                                        Working locally in the Apokoronas area, we organise Trap/Neuter/Release programmes with dedicated volunteers. We loan traps, cages for nursing & transports across Europe, we treat & nurse cats/kittens when they are injured or sick.

                                        We use humane reputable local Greek & volunteer vets who support our work with their veterinary skills, food & medicines. Please contact us via the link on our web site or send a PM from here, we can add your cat(s) to our list.

                                        Christmas Appeal

                                        Our Xmas appeal is for donations to fund travel costs in January 2014 sending SEVEN stranded cats & kittens to our colleague’s shelter in the UK for adoption. We have kind van drivers who take them across as & when they can but they cannot take them all.

                                        When they came to us all the cats were sick & injured in some way, many had to be bottle fed & hand reared often they had undergone traumatic limb amputations like Harriet & Hebe or lost eyes like our darling kitten Erasmus who still manages to walk daintily along the fence top to reach  feathered friends, no catches so far!

                                        Once healthy & healed our foster mothers take them into their homes for socialisation & have lovingly cared for them whilst we search for adopters. Having bonded with humans from such a young age none can go back to being village cats, they cannot fend for themselves & would in most cases die.

                                        If they cannot travel we shall have no room for the influx of sick kittens/cats in the spring.
                                        Each travel ticket costs £280 that does not include surgery/medicines, veterinary costs, passports & food.

                                        Many thanks to the individuals & organisations who have supported our work this year we appreciate life is difficult, finances are stretched for all humans but these little souls have no one to help them other than us & you.

                                            We have raised Bumble’s ticket thank you to all that have helped.

                                            Instead of Bella we are sending Huggy who has an anxious adopter waiting for him in the UK who cannot afford the flight cost. He & his siblings came to us at 7 days of age from the Chania team after his mother was run over.
                                            Covered in parasites & starving they had to be bottle fed for three weeks by us & a team of volunteers. We lost one little one but Huggy & the others are now thriving. Please help give him a new start.

                                            We are appealing for donations to reach the £285 per cat fee to fill this flight.  We have donors that have genourously helpled already, any sum you can afford however small is appreciated.

                                            If you would like to donate please follow the website link where there is a paypal donate button, many thanks

                                            ps we dont use a facebook paypal link as they take a percentage charge on top of the paypal percentage charge

                                                        We use the Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) guidelines for our cats & kittens.

                                                        Simple & clear this link explains FIP & how to deal with it we do not test any rescue cats under a year as they can still be carrying antibodies from the mother so may test positive but never devlop the disease.

                                                        We advise re homing postive adult cats on their own

                                                            We send rescue kittens/cats all over Europe by air except the UK due to the disproportionate fees.

                                                            To fly a kitten to the UK the airlines require an escort so you pay for a passenger ticket then a further fee is levied for “handling” approx £500 so cats can be processed at the approved UK airports.

                                                            In January we had a UK adopter come forward & she paid to bring her Greek kitten to the UK. It was cheaper to get a volunteer to escort the kitten via Athens to Amsterdam & the adopter showing great fortitude drove via the Euro tunnel to pick her up!

                                                            We use volunteers or approved “van men” driving to the UK to take our cats/kittens.

                                                            If you need any further help send us an email or PM:

                                                                Very difficult to transport animals this time of year from Crete as you are finding out!

                                                                The Friends of Animals of Rethymnon send rescue dogs all over Europe to new homes & there is nothing they do not know regarding flights.

                                                                I do not think you will get your dog back for less than you were quoted but try Rita or Clodagh they may be able to help:

                                                                        We are currently assisting our rescue kittens & their adopters with repatriations back to the UK in January.

                                                                        The UK rabies law changing on January 1st 2012 has allowed us greater flexibility & owners the chance to take their cats back without waiting six months for rabies clearance.

                                                                        We have access to volunteers who will escort cats back on flights to the UK.

                                                                        We have volunteers who go back to the UK via Euro tunnel who will take cats back for us at cost.

                                                                        There are people who regularly transport goods back to the UK who have come forward to assist at vastly cheaper rates than the major pet transport organisations or flight options.

                                                                        VOCAL/Cat-a-List & FAR are sometimes able to assist but of course all require donations as the costs are not inconsiderable & the organisation takes many hours or work.

                                                                        Anyone can contact us for further information or support we are happy to help in UK repatriation for cats rather than have to rescue & re home abandoned pets.

                                                                                If ovarian tissue is left behind it can lie dormant for years before this starts & will not be always a regular thing. The danger is only when it keeps happening regularly for long periods of time.

                                                                                We had a Persian girl neutered who called every spring a few weeks for 13 yrs, living to the grand old age of 17!

                                                                                We decided with our vet after a scan rummaging around for a bit of lost tissue in her condition (kidney disease) was not worth it. She did eventually die of cancer of the gut but after 17yrs it was expected.

                                                                                If it continues or she is distressed by it see your vet

                                                                                Good luck!

                                                                                    You don`t say but if you had her neutered & she behaves this way she properly has Ovarian Remnant Syndrome.

                                                                                    Poor surgical technique or a difficult ovary to locate can lead to a piece of ovary being left behind during the operation. This ovarian tissue erratically produces hormones which bring on oestrus & the cat calls.

                                                                                    Daisy will need to be operated on again as continuous calling with no pregnancy will lead eventually to either breast or ovarian cancer (the piece of tissue left behind).

                                                                                    Her behaviour is due to frustration at not mating I can recommend vets if you do not have one.

                                                                                    Good luck!
