April 2017 - UPDATE
At the end of January we came out to Corfu and spent two months in order to sterilise and treat some of the sick cats. We thank Greek Cat Welfare for supporting us in this and thank them for their very generous donation to pay for the sterilising. We had a very successful two months in Corfu where cats were sterilised in the south of the island and many more in the Kassiopi and Avlaki area. Thanks go to Vicky and Makis for the hard work and dedication in helping to get the Avlaki cats sterilised we could not have done it without them. Thank you to everyone else who helped in the Kassiopi area and to Ian, Dawn and Angela for their contribution to the work in the South.

The work will continue in all these areas during the summer especially with any sick cats but it is always more difficult to sterilise during this time as the cats will go off to the Hotels, Villas and Apartmens to get spoilt by the visitors !

Some of the colonies that we have recently neutered

Avlaki Colony - now neutered

Kassiopi Group - now neutered

A San Steph Colony - now neutered

Corfu had a very cold winter this year especially during the month of January, despite the cold weather many of the cats managed to get through the winter with the help of many kind people on the island who made sure the strays all had food, fortunately the cold did not last too long and as February came to an end it had warmed up a little. We have had to treat quite a few of the cats for colds and sneezes which the cold weather had caused but many have got over them and with the warm weather now on its way we hope they will have a more comfortable life in the warm.

We are still winter feeding the cats until the season gets going and they decide they have found a better menu !
Many thanks to those of you that support us in order to provide this food, it is you, the very kind visitors that feed these litte ones during the winter. Thank you to everyone of you that donate for the food.

Sette Vente Cafe Cat
This little boy below turned up at the port cafe Sette Vente, during the cold winter, (I think he was a bit shy at having his photo taken !!!)
He had a damaged paw and was wandering around the waiting room area when a friend of the charity saw him. She spoke to the staff who told her he had turned up a few weeks previously in the cold weather and they had been feeding him. They had become very fond of him and wanted to keep him so our friend suggested to them that if they were going to keep him he should be sterilised and health checked. She came to AAWF and asked if we could help. We arranged his sterilisation and health check. His paw is an old injury that was not troubling him so he was sterilised and returned to the cafe. We were very pleased to be able to help such lovely people who wanted to do something to help a stray cat. Thanks to everyone at Settee Vente who are caring for this beautiful boy.

Benitses Billy
Billy was found amongst the Benitses Colony of cats that we have recently sterilised. He was very young, had diahorea, ringworm and was full of worms. He was too young to sterilise so he was taken home and treated by Dawn for his health problems. After a few weeks of medication he recovered well, he was kept until he was old enough to be sterilised with the intention of finding him a home, as he would begin to be dependent on his carers, but as time went by Billy became very unhappy at being confined. He is quite an unusal boy, instead of becoming loving he was showing sings of aggression and wanting to be free again. So we decided to return Billy after he was sterilised to the colony he came from, where he is now very happy. He is being fed regularly, again, with your donations and someone has been checking on him regularly and has reported that he is alot happier as a free cat with his friends and very probably some of his family. Billy has shown us that many of these cats are quite happy living as free cats as long as they are sterilised, healthy and have food and medical care when needed. Good luck Billy enjoy your freedom.


Below we have three lucky little guys who did prefer to be inside and enjoy some cuddles and some fuss and have gone to homes in the UK. they travelled to their new homes in March and all three have settled happily into their new life.

Help is always Needed
So if anyone on the island can help us in any way it would be appreciated, the more help we have, the more we can do. We need people to help the cats get medical treatment and to help them recover from treatments and we especially need help with kittens. If anyone could care for a cat or kitten on a temporary basis whilst it awaits transport to the UK, do contact us as we often have cats and kittens waiting for transport.

Anyone living in Corfu, if you can take on a cat or kitten as an outdoor cat and ensure that they get food and have shelter and some protection from the bad weather in the wintertime we will sterilise any cat that is taken on and pay for any medication. Please email info@agni-animal-welfare-fund.co.uk if you can help.
