She appeared out of nowhere. One day, all of the usual (spayed) cats were at the colony; the next, this little ginger-and-white girl with a distinctive moustache was there too, twining around our legs, wanting to be picked up and clasp her arms around our necks in a purring hug. Very petite and thin, she was nonetheless recently pregnant, and suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection. After three weeks of treatment her sneezing is almost gone, she is spayed and now eager to move into a forever home where she can show her human just how much love and affection she has to give.

Nikolakis was a stray cat living in a central Athens square. One night three dogs attacked him. He was able to escape and remained hidden in an abandoned building. Later, a private security guard told us that Nikolakis had died. But we didn’t abandoned him - we had to see for ourselves. We found the keys to the building, entered, called his name, and there he was, alive, but just barely. We immediately took him to the vet but the doctor said that poor Nikolakis did not have much chance of surviving. It was impossible for us to accept that.

He switches cars faster than an F1 driver switches gears! Schumi was hiding in different car engines for the last two days, but after 3 hours (and with the help of another stray cat from one of the colonies we take care of) he finally emerged to safety. Schumi is looking for a forever home (and, for now, a foster home). He is 3 months old, deflead & dewormed, and gets along well with other cats.

This kitten was abandoned, complete with her cage, bowls and toys, at a feeding place last August. We picked up the then-tiny kitten, and a kind volunteer offered to foster her short-term. It soon became clear that the kitten, Little Miss Sunshine, had neurological problems (ataxia or CH wobbly kitten syndrome), either due to a blow to the head or a virus from her mother, that caused various unusual behaviours: she wobbles, bobs her head up and down when eating, prefers to eat from the floor, does not/cannot jump, and - this is the difficult part - does not use the litter tray consistently.

He might be wearing a little clown nose and hoping to entertain you with his antics, but look into Chico's eyes and you can see the sadness. He was abandoned as a tiny kitten with his two siblings in an abandoned kiosk in central Athens. Perhaps a person dumped them there, or perhaps their mum thought it was a safe place to hide her kittens, then met a tragic fate herself and never returned. All three kittens were rescued, and two of them are now adopted.

Lovely little Lolita has been the mascot of our street for the past 2 years, but the time has come to find a home for her as she has become adventurous and this could prove dangerous for her life because of her limited vision. Everyone loves Lolita and she is such an intelligent cat. She is three years old, spayed, vaccinated and very healthy and sociable with people and other cats.

This lovely kitty was found with a badly injured leg on the streets of Athens. We took her to the vet where they found that the leg was broken, while she also had numerous cuts and wounds around her body, so we believe that she may have sought refuge in a car engine and suffered the consequences when the engine started... After over a month at the vet with her leg in a cast, she is now fully healed.

Haris & Panos were rescued from the yard of a hospital building where the employees were feeding them. Both of them are sociable and easy-going and get along well with other cats. Though they look almost identical, we can tell them apart because Haris has a sexy black 'goatee' on his chin. The two boys would love to be adopted together. They are good friends who play together and sleep next to each other. But we would also give them separately.

A pretty kitten and an even prettier moustache! Frida was found as a young kitten with a severe eye infection. Time was of the essence with this condition so we trapped and rushed this little beauty to the vet clinic. She has now completed treatment and thankfully her eye has been saved. A little white shadow is the only mark left to remind us of her difficult past on the streets. She is now very healthy, spayed and vaccinated, and looking forward to a very bright future - could it be with you?
