God's Little People Cat Sanctuary already cares for about 70 cats in Syros Greece. They have just come across a colony on a hillside full of abandoned cats, many of whom are going blind from easily preventable conditions. It is heartbreaking to see all these cats and kittens. Some of the kittens have been found homes, as has a cat they rescued the other day who was unable to eat or groom herself because her teeth were rotten. They have been removed and she is now eating and free from pain.

They are not ferals but sweet friendly cats who appear to have been dumped. God's Little People are trying to get them spay/neutered, save them from going blind and find homes if possible for the kittens. This is the sort of life Filipos could easily be living.
Feel free to share this post I have donated what I can afford but wish I could do so much more.

The vet treatment costs a great deal which is why I'm selling calendars of Filipos to try to raise some much-needed funds for the charity. I will happily send the donation receipt to anyone who buys one.

£5 from any calendars sold will be donated to God's Little People Cat Rescue.

A win for Reuben Redfur

I was rather amused to learn that Reuben was placed fifth in a class called "Perfect Pups" in Rusty and Friends Online Show! There were 81 entries and he was the only cat to place.

Calendars

Does anyone want me to put calendars for sale on lulu this year?

I make under £1 per calendar profit and create them primarily to share my photos. I think they cost about £14 including tax and postage and I've been told they are good quality and the photos could be framed as prints.

Please complete the poll to tell me if you are interested or not and if so what sort of photos you'd like.

Are you interested in purchasing a calendar?

I could also create custom ones, say of a set of views of the river or all photos of Harry.

Photos till the end of October

I'm dreadfully behind with everything and debated whether to post or not as I'm still behind with comments. I fear it is doubtful I'll get to them this week as life is rather hectic. I do truly appreciate each one. I decided it was best not to get behind with posts as well as comments or I'll never catch up and this my blog to remind myself of what happened when.
The photos are of my boys and the chapel social evening and the journey there. (Photos taken from the car window.) The Baptist chapel is right out in the country and I went there for many years and still go a few times a year.

We British have fireworks now and at New Year, while I know my friends in other countries have them at other times. I was prompted to make this poll by comments in pet groups on FB and would be grateful if you'd take part if you have pets.

And a win for Filpos Apollo!

And I just learned Filipos has won an award too! I nearly didn't enter as it was to support Rottweilers which I admit I'm scared of, (I'm sure many are lovely but I'm a cat person) but I entered a few photos and Filipos won a special award in the Halloween themed Cat Class. There were 53 entries.
