Rescue Dog Helps Feed 30 Stray Cats Every Day And Saves Their Lives
A couple from Athens, Greece started feeding stray cats around their neighborhood after they adopted their rescue dog, Meli three and a half years ago.
Meli liked the kitties from the very first day. One of the cats even followed her around whenever they went out for a walk. When the cat got sick, they brought him in, and he’s been part of their family ever since.
Every day they make it a point to take a long walk and feed around 30 stray cats. To top things off, Fay and Dionisis spay and neuter all the kitties they can trap and provide them with medical care so that every neighborhood cat can live a happy and healthy life.
They started casually feeding the stray cats around the neighborhood, and it soon became a responsibility. The feline word spread and the next thing they knew, many neighborhood cats marched in and joined the daily feedings.
Meli shares a special bond with every single cat they feed. The cats see her as their food provider, who feeds them three times a day.
All the cats comes running towards Meli when she comes.
99% of the cats in the neighborhood have been spayed/neutered.
The couple is doing everything they can to regulate the colony population, while also making sure the cats are well fed and have access to medical care.
The usual routine involves Meli greeting the cats with nose kisses, as her owners distribute the food.
She has helped socialize many stray cats that were once scared of people. The cats are simply drawn to her and just follow her every move.
Some of them are able to adapt to an indoor life and then be placed up for adoption.
The couple’s neighbors don’t always approve for what they do. But, their action has proven to keep the colony population under control while maintaining the neighborhood’s cleanliness.
“Some of the neighbors are understanding and accept our love for the animals and our need to care for them.”
They founded a rescue group named SCARS with a mission to rescue, spay/neuter local stray cats, and find them homes.
“We keep going. Unstoppable.”
