Cat Lovers

Whereas at one time cats were mere mouse catchers, they are now much cherished and loved members of the family. Close contact with cats brings us joy. Cuddling a cat can help us live longer, lower our blood pressure, reduce stress and remain healthier. Cats are welcome additions to residential care homes and prisoner rehabilitation programmes.

By bringing these wild animals into our homes, we owe them our understanding of their natural needs. Cats continue to retain all their natural instincts when they share our domestic environment. We can observe our cat’s feline body language, and keep cats healthy with good nutrition, exercise and careful health care.

Volunteering Experience

Our boss has been helping animal shelters as a volunteer for years and we grasp the benefit of that.

We are not alone, we are with many cats and knowing our boss, more friends will follow.

Other Experiences

We love to play with toys, we play fight and, do not tell the boss, we do also have “real” fights, every now and then, but do not tell anyone.

Oops, I forgot to tell you that we EAT a lot.

Volunteering in Spain

Volunteering with the local authority

In Spain, all villages and towns receive a Government subsidy to provide for the basic needs of the feral animals living in the borough.  This money is used for sterilisation, and to control the number of cats living in colonies.  Arrangements are made with the local vets so that any injured or sick animals can receive medical attention, the vet later being reimbursed by the Town Hall.   

It is often possible to obtain a licence from the Town Hall, as an Animal Protector – Protectora Animal – to feed, and sterilise the feral cats, and take them to the vet when necessary. 

To Know More

Cat Lovers Donations

I have been a licenced Volunteer Animal Protector in my village (Gata de Gorgos), for 5 years.

During these 5 years I have been feeding over 40 cats and that number is growing.

Feeding these cats costs me 55€ per month just for cat food, which is not reimbursed by the town hall.

Any donation in helping to feed the cats is welcome.
