Junior’s New Year Diary

Well, you wouldn’t believe what a busy month we’ve had here at Syros Cats. Christmas is always a bit chaotic, with lots of people. My mum always collects greenery and makes decorations for the house. We older cats know to leave them alone, but for the younger ones, it’s great sport trying to get them […]

Sterilisations in Syros

It’s been a busy autumn of TNR in Syros with and Syros Cats! A large number of cats have found shelter in a messy, scarce area near the marina in Lazareta. They are lucky to be visited frequently by their guardian angel, Aliki, but they were clearly in need of neutering to stop the […]

Junior’s Blog – November

My mum has gone away – again! She did tell me this time and said she wouldn’t be long, but it does seem like a long time, even though I’m keeping her bed warm and keeping an eye on things. I’m grateful to get replacement cuddles from others here. Well it’s cold and wet now. […]

During the summer, we were informed by our local partners, Donkeysland Γαϊδουροχώρα – το Ελληνικό […]
