Freddy: Adopt a Cat #CharityTuesday

It's sad that there are so many homeless, abandoned and orphaned kitties in the world but we're here to share the amazing work that many pet rescue charities do all over the globe.

We want to help not only the cats of the UK but we are trying to raise awareness for the international cat charities too.

If you would like to help, please check them out and do what you can for them. 

We are not affiliated with any of these charities but we do support them if and when we can. 

Adopt Don't Shop. Rescue Don't Breed. 
I was rescued and adopted as a kitten in July 2011

Here is another kitty at Wood Green, The Animals Charity who is looking for a forever home.


Black and white cat

For Tuxie Tuesday we have a beautiful black and white cat named Freddy. This handsome man cat is 9 years old and is being looked after by the Godmanchester branch of Wood Green.

Freddy describes himself as being a little shy but once he gets to know you he will love to spend time with you. He is affectionate with his favourite humans and likes to greet people he trusts with a head butt. 

A calm home is what he would love, where he can explore and get to know his environment and humans on his own terms. Freddy is looking for a calm home, where he can be given the time to approach his humans and explore his environment on his own terms. 

If you want to know more about adopting Freddy read more about him here.


Nine Lives Greece cats

Adopt a cat from Greece

Based in Athens, Greece, Nine Lives Greece is "just a handful of volunteers who dedicate our spare time to the stray cats, we have no office, no shelter facilities, no animal ambulance or transport van, and we receive no state funding or assistance". 

The charity's main aim is the "humane reduction of the stray cat overpopulation through trap-neuter-return programmes. Each year, we get hundreds of stray cats in Athens neutered/spayed, greatly reducing the numbers of unwanted kittens born each season, and ensuring a healthier adult cat population."

Nine Lives Greece also helps to improve the quality of life for existing street cats through feeding programmes on a daily basis feeding nearly 450 stray and abandoned cats in central Athens and giving routine anti-parasite treatment, and veterinary care for ill or injured cats. In addition, they find loving, responsible homes for as many stray or abandoned cats and kittens as possible.

Here are some cats from Nine Lives on Instagram.

This beautiful cat is looking so happy now she has found her forever home! We are so happy for her. Rescue Cats Rock!

We are beyond happy to share this photo with you. Pashalitsa is gazing upon a happy future from her new home where she will spend the rest of her life with her mum and a cat sister. From unbelievable pain to total recovery, from total neglect to unconditional love. What an amazing journey this kitten already had. A million thanks to everyone involved in her rescue 🙏 ——— Με τεράστια χαρά μοιραζόμαστε αυτή τη φωτό μαζί σας. Η Πασχαλίτσα ατενίζει ένα ευτυχισμένο μέλλον από το νέο της σπίτι όπου θα περάσει την υπόλοιπη ζωή της μαζί με την μαμά της και την γατο-αδερφούλα της. Από τον ανείπωτο πόνο στην πλήρη ανάρρωση, από την εγκατάλειψη στην άνευ όρων αγάπη. Τι μεγάλη διαδρομή έχει διανύσει ήδη αυτή η μικρή γατούλα. Άπειρα ευχαριστώ σε όσους έλαβαν μέρος στην διάσωση της 🙏 ——- #παμεσπιτι #εφτάψυχες #ninelivesgreece #adopted #happyend #specialcat #catrescue #kittenrescue #adoptdontshop #catsofgreece #rescuedismyfavoritebreed

Nala is a gorgeous golden tabby with emerald eyes and a wonderful personality. She is the friendliest, cuddliest cat you ever met. She has a thing for men and will certainly seduce any guy that comes along her way. She follows you everywhere and purrs 24/7. She is an absolute lovebug and really deserves a home that will cherish this precious young cat. Please help! ——- Η Νάλα είναι μια πανέμορφη χρυσή τιγρούλα με σμαραγδένια μάτια και ξεχωριστό χαρακτήρα. Είναι η πιο φιλική και τρυφερή γάτα που έχεις γνωρίσει. Έχει αδυναμία στους άντρες και θα σαγηνεύσει οποίο αρσενικό βρεθεί στο δρόμο της! Χουρχουριζει και ζητά χάδια συνέχεια, ενώ ακολουθεί τον άνθρωπο της παντού! Είναι ένα αγαπησιάρικο πλασματάκι που αξίζει ένα σπίτι που θα την λατρέψει. Θα μας βοηθήσετε να της το χαρίσουμε; ——- #εφταψυχες #παμεσπιτι #nineluvesgreece #adoptme #adoptdontshop #straycats #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #goldentabby #bengal #lovecats #greeneyes #catsofgreece #ineedahome #catrescue #animalrescue #kittenrescue #tabby #tabbycat

Skiathos Cat Welfare needs your HELP…

From Skiathos Cat Welfare Association Facebook page:

"We have been aware of a situation for some time, we have tried to help with food when we can, however things have now sadly escalated.
In the middle of the island, an elderly local man has been trying for some time to care for numerous cats, and 3 dogs. He has done his best considering his age and failing health. Sadly, he is now in hospital and the situation in his home is critical. We have been given permission from his family to go to the house to try and help the cats there. It's clear that the resident has been struggling for some time and it’s a very sad situation.
There are cats needing vet care, there are kittens, pregnant females, a blind cat. In the day we have seen around 20-30 cats, I imagine when its cooler there are more we just haven’t seen.
Immediate needs are food, new feeding bowls, and general things to try and do what we can to the immediate area to try and improve the situation.
We are very short of volunteers and its hard to try and go everyday which is what it needs. Is there anyone in the local community who could help a fellow resident as this is a long term situation for which at this time we don’t know how the story will end.
We want to try our best, but need a little help.
Can you buy an SOS token for £1 ?"
Each token will go in the pot to get food, water, medical care, and any immediate needs for these cats.

Overlooked cats 

Sadly, there are so many overlooked cats urgently needing forever homes everywhere. Here is a list of UK rescue shelters and charities from the cat rescue resource CatChat.org, with details of harder to home senior cats, black cats, special needs cats, FIV+ cats and feral/farm cats. 

(PHOTO borrowed from CatChat.org)



All proceeds from A Forever Home For Athena will be donated to the following charities:

Wood Green The Animals Charity
Greek Cat Welfare Society
Cats Protection



More homeless pets looking for forever homes can be found on my Mum's Pinterest Pet Rescue board.
Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. As a rescue kitty myself I want to help other rescues find their forever home, so each week on Charity Tuesday I share adoptable cats from Wood Green, the Animals Charity (which is where I was rescued) and some other charities dear to our hearts. Mum and I are so grateful to Wood Green because without them we would never have found each other! Please note: We are here to help cats and give our time freely. We also ensure that to the best of our knowledge and research other lesser-known charities mentioned are legit.

We consider ourselves so very lucky to have found Manny and CB, who were being overlooked because they were a pair, and all black! Well, for those who overlooked them...nyah nyah nyah! We will always adopt rescue kitties.
