It's time for me to take a break from cat business and head for a holiday. I'm going to Finland to see my friends and my mom and go see some great bands (bands that are totally NOT reggae!) play live and will enjoy good food and drinks. Hopefully I won't freeze to death, as it looks like summer in Finland has been cold and rainy so far!
Cat shop is still open today, but will then be closed for the next 5 weeks, opening again on July 25th. This is unfortunate, but I just don't have anyone to keep the shop open while I'm gone.
I'm excited to go away, but at the same time I am super stressed. Leaving all my cats and going away is super stressing, even when I know my lovely neighbours will go feed my cats and look after them (half my cats hang at their house anyway). I'm scared they will get sick or something happens and I am not there to help them. I just hope they are all alive and well when I come back in July.
Then some important information:
I won't be replying to FB-messages or emails much while I'm away so please check information from this website. Most of what people are asking can be found here.
CAT SHOP is closed until July 24th. Open normally again from monday July 25th.
CAT HOSPITAL at Lutwala Dive in Gili Trawangan is open normally. If your cat is sick or you find a cat that needs help, please contact Tori at Lutwala Dive, tel. 0877 6549 2615 (SMS please)
In serious cases, please contact vet Ririt in Mataram, Lombok, tel. 0812 1692 8360 and take your cat to Vet Ririt's clinic.
If there is a horse who needs help, please contact Horses Of Gili -project.
Please note Cats Of Gili is located on Gili islands, Indonesia, and we have no possibility to response to cat (or other animal) emergencies elsewhere (seriously, I get loads of messages from other parts of Indonesia, and every now and then from other countries too, people asking advice about cats or asking me to bring our cat clinics there or asking for help to a sick cat thousands of kilometres away from here....).
If you have animal welfare concerns somewhere else than in Gili islands, please google for the nearest organization or vet. In Bali, contact BARC, BAWA or Villa Kitty for help. Elsewhere in Indonesia, contact Jakarta Animal Aid for information. Other parts of the world: search for your nearest local organization.
Thank you, terima kasih, meooow!
Ok, folks and felines! There is trouble in the virtual cat world! Our website was hacked and basically destroyed. We're not able to fix it. We have to build a new website.
How would do this? We are a small, tiny, poor animal welfare project. What is there to gain by hacking our website?
And right now when I am leaving for a holiday in just couple of days and would have two million other things to do. Drives me crazy and my stress levels have totally hit the roof.
However, this is our new website now. Please be patient: loads of info and pictures are missing, but we'll get all sorted out in time. Main thing is to have a website, with the most important info available.
Sending bad karma to the evil hackers who did this!
