COVID UPDATE and MEOW FOR HELP:
Gili islands live from tourism, and since March 2020 and covid restrictions on travel, our islands have been empty. Not only tourists left, but also many long term residents had to leave. Most businesses closed and people lost their jobs and income.
Our island cats started to get hungry. Restaurants mostly closed, so no left overs for cats. No cat friendly tourists to share their meals with cats.
We started Pussy Patroling, aka feeding stray cats, at the end of March 2020. We have volunteers who go around the island every day and feed hundreds of cats. We have also supported feedings in Gili Air and Gili Meno. And we hand out cat food packages to local cat loving families, who struggle to keep their pet cats fed.
Our cat food costs have been astronomical. We go through about 120-150kg of dry food per week. We also always have cat patients and kittens on our clinic, and they need food and care too. We have hired a vet to help us provide veterinary care for cats in need.
Just like everyone else here, we are also struggling with money all the time. In normal times our little charity shop brings us fairly ok income, but since tourists left, the shop is not really making any money. We sell nothing but a bit of cat food, for the few people who still are here and can afford to pay for the cat food.
While we are waiting for the world to get back to normal, we will keep feeding our cats and we will keep on looking after them.
Please help us continue our work and support us by sending a donation. See below for the different options for donating.
