Nine Lives Greece
In this blog post I will write about my experience with Nine Lives Greece. I tagged along with volunteer Maria on her feeding round near the Acropolis, right in the heart of Athens. Also, I will write about adopting my kitten Ollie who flew home with me!
On the website of Nine Lives Greece, you can find all the information if you like to read about who they are, what they do and the different options how you can help them with caring for the stray cats of Athens, Greece.

Feeding the strays
This is a year-round, 365 days of the year job and the volunteers of Nine Lives Greece take this job very seriously. They know every single cat that belongs to “their” colonies spread over the city of Athens. They give names to the cats so that they can keep an eye on them and discuss any abnormalities with each other and take action if needed. As Nine Lives is a non-profit organisation, all expenses need to be paid for by donations and the help of volunteers. It takes about 900 euros per month just to feed their colonies, excluding the TNR (Trap Neuter and Return) of cats and medical bills.
The best way to show you how it was to join Maria on her feeding round is via this video that I made:
