Junior’s Diary – March

Well – here we are again and it’s nearly Easter. I feel well and truly abandoned. I knew something was up in January when my mum started to sort out her clothes. She always hides her bags from me because she knows I get upset if she’s going away and then all the house cats […]

4 days of sterilisations in Taxiarchis!

Our Taxiarchis Animal Welfare Clinic has now hosted three sterilisation outreach trips and we have many more to come! What began as an emergency station to be used to treat animals in the wildfires of 2021, has turned into a permanent fixture for sterilising, vaccinating and treating the stray cats and dogs in the area.  […]

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 […]

Junior’s Diary – December

Well, hello again. I’m Junior, writing this month’s blog from the comfort of an indoor bed. After a few days when it was just like summer, it’s really cold again – I hate it when an icy wind blows through my fur. First, a few updates. Olivia is becoming a house cat. I don’t really […]

Junior’s Diary – 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. […]

Junior’s diary – September

I can’t believe how busy it is round here. I have to keep my wits about me to make sure I monitor everything that’s going on. Mum’s builder is back and staying with us, so he’s been renovating some of our sheds to make sure they don’t leak. We haven’t had any rain yet, but […]

Sterilisation clinic saving lives in Taxiarchis!

In collaboration with local animal welfare group, ARTEMIS, and with cooperation from the Municipality, we are proud to have our sterilisation clinic up and running in Taxiarchis! Unfortunately, our latest outreach for World Animal Day on 4th October was postponed due to a case of Covid in the veterinary team, but nonetheless, the clinic will […]

Junior’s Diary – August

I can’t believe how quickly the months roll by… In Greece, the humans say ‘Kalo Myna’ at the beginning of each month. August is usually the hottest and driest month and we’ll all be pleased to have a bit of cooler weather for September. But this month’s news, you wouldn’t believe it! We’ve had some […]

Junior’s Diary – July

Well, it’s been a busy month at Syros Cats – very, very hot and we can smell smoke from distant wildfires near Athens and on other islands. That’s a bit scary… I’m Junior, just reporting on what’s happening on our small Greek island. I spend a lot of time on my mum’s bed. I love […]
