Happy Duende

Although we are unable to rescue and rehome as many cats as we do dogs, we do that whenever we can. Both at our sister shelter in Algeciras and at El Refugio. And up the hill, at the dog and cat hotel, the many feral cats who live in the Campo are looked after, while they are left undisturbed.

It's a heartwarming sight every day, at supper time, to see the fields around become alive with furry bodies making their way to the hotel where they know a nice meal awaits them. There is always water too and shelter, both from the sun in summer and the wind and rain and cold at other seasons. Small cat kennels and houses are dotted about the site and a special room is provided with soft cushions and blankets and a window always open so any cat who wants can come in and out as they please.

Beautiful Duende is one of our lovely rescues. Such a beautiful creature. And how wonderful to see how well he has fallen on his paws.

Sweet little Santana is longing for his soul mate ...

Sweet little Santana has been waiting for his soul mate in the shelter for a year.
Would you give this little one the warm and loving home that he looks forward to?
He would be so grateful for that!
