Dog owners walk a lot, and this is sometimes risky in Greece – well, depending on the way you look at things. Basically, walking your dog in the mountain or near a garbage bin, the chances of finding an abandoned litter of puppies or kittens are quite high.
So today, we were walking with a friend and her dog near the mountain where she lives and came across this cardboard box. Four kittens were inside, just looking at the world around them in shock.
To be fair, it wasn’t us who found them, it was Aragon, Iro’s dog. We had no intention of going towards that direction, but Aragon kept pulling us, so we followed him. So basically, it was him who rescued them – and who fosters them too.
It’s not the first time Aragon becomes a “foster parent” to a stray kitten. His first rescue was Simone, a stray cat who followed him around when he was on his daily walk, and one day she went into the house with him.
Living in a small apartment with an adopted dog, and adopted cat, a foster dog (Emma) and four new foster kittens is not easy, but it’s fun! The humans are definitely outnumbered for now – as it usually is in every volunteer’s house.
Aragon loves his new rescue kittens. He watches over them, plays with them, bathes them and protects them. They are his babies and he is constantly curious about what they are doing and how they are behaving.
There is nothing more adorable than having a bunch of kittens running around and exploring the house – but those Kodak moments never last long. The kittens will not be kittens for long, they will grow to become cats – and cats are much more difficult to rehome than kittens.
So their big opportunity for a forever home is now, and the older they get, the less adoptable they will be. If you wish to adopt one of them, please contact SCARS at: firstname.lastname@example.org or message their Facebook page. Donations (PayPal): email@example.com
