Hi! My name is Xenia and I’m 45 years old. I was born in Athens and have lived here all my life. I have always had a huge heart for animals and 14 years ago I was finally able to rescue my first cat off the streets. Since then I have come to realise the sad reality of stray cats in Athens. There are too many cats in need and not enough people who are ready to help. But I have been taking care of stray cats ever since my first rescue.

Right now I am fostering many cats that I have rescued off the street. And I still have my - who has been with me from the very start. I want to give many of these cats up for adoption, as soon as they are well and ready for it.

The problem I have is that I can’t afford to take care of all these cats anymore as I lost my job last week. My partner of four years loves cats as well and he was really supportive and helped me a lot with the cats. Recently he was arrested for staying in the country for too long and he is now being held at a detention center in Athens. They are going to deport him to Africa where he is from, but we have a lawyer here fighting for his case. Everyone knows lawyers aren’t cheap.

Without a job I can not afford to feed the cats, let alone pay for the medical attention some of them need and very much deserve! It breaks my heart. The economical situation in Greece is still so bad that my family and friends can’t support me either.

So I am begging you to help me help these cats.

This is what I am fundraising for exactly:

-3 female cat needs to be spayed 180€

-3 male cats need to be castrated 3x30€=90€

-1 cat needs urgently help with their teeth

-1 cat sneezes a lot and needs to see a vet

-1 beautiful cat needs eye surgery

-1 cat has a tumour on her leg

-1 poor cat is vomiting and needs help asap!

As you can see there are a lot of expenses that I absolutely can not handle on my own. I need your financial support. And I need it now, before it is too late.

So please, if you can find the kindness in your heart to donate anything to these beautiful creatures, I will be forever grateful.

Thank you!

Xenia
