(the picture above is our lovely spider cat - rescued last year)
Thanks to Angela Winstanley of Kouklia Arts for coming on board with our neutering programme. As things have been going at such a pace I hadn't had the chance to put her in the picture about the fund so am going to take this opportunity of updating everyone.
Known as, Mandry's Fund-Cyprus feral cat project, (TNR trap neuter and release) it was started April 2013 to help a heavily pregnant kitten surviving outside Mandria fish and chip shop. My friend Judith Jurner and her friends Anna and Norma instantly donated funds towards getting Mandry and her litter neutered. When we had raised enough money for that we moved onto a colony of feral cats that Judith was feeding in Timi.During the year we raised €1,100 , but needed some exposure about what we were doing.
In comes Jo Welsby ,vet nurse from the uk who set up a fb page for us as I did not do fb then, she has posted all our pics and stories and is in fact updating the page this coming weekend.
Mandry's fund has nothing to do with the Tala Monastery Cats for whom I raise seperate funds by holding events at my home.

At the moment we are concentrating on the cats in Kouklia square and the taverna owners have been very responsive to our efforts.
In an attempt to reduce the kitten population we are neutering these cats (one such Tortie pictured above) at no cost to them as all these cats belong to the village and not to anyone personally. At the moment we have funds availeable but it won't take long for them to dry up if we continue to be so successful in our captures.We have a pay pal account where people can make donations and will be letting you know in future posts of hways in which you can help
