The Story

The harsh reality of the cruel life of Bulgaria’s cats and dogs is heartbreaking; animals like dogs and cats are not treated as members of the family as they are for example in the U.K., but as tools, either for home security or for rodent eradication.
For many cats and dogs the only food they will ever know is bread, and maybe the odd scraps of leftover food. Most dogs are put on a short chain outside the home, where they will spend the rest of their lives. Most owners cannot afford to pay for their animals to be spayed or castrated and there is a large community of kittens and pups that are simply abandoned to the elements to fend for themselves, often becoming casualties on the roads.
We rescued our first kitten simply because otherwise he would most certainly have died, he was very young, starving and injured. He (later named Big Puss) grew into a beautiful and strong ginger and white cat.
At regular intervals we are rescuing more kittens from the streets, they are hungry and often injured. We treat them for parasites, and feed them up until they are strong again – then we keep them as we knew no other Brits that want kittens, and we don’t have the heart to abandon them.
In addition to the ones we actually took into our home we feed an ever growing population of cats and kittens that live on the streets.
As the cats have grown we have come to realise the great importance of having them neutered, as one can turn into a litter at a very young age.
We are struggling to finance this alone, and will continue to do so without help.
Abandoning the feeding of what is now 16 or 17 cats and kittens is not an option, at least not to us.
We desperately need help to feed them and also to neuter them, and this is why we appeal to you to find it in your heart to help with a small donation.
We will never turn a stray away to end up another statistic, to be run over by the traffic or frozen to death in the harsh Bulgarian winters.
It currently costs us about 30 GB pounds a week to feed all of the animals, we have also rescued a dog that we have named Trampo from the streets, another named Shiny that was to be shot, and latterly Esso a 4 week old pup found in the snow at the local petrol station, and are feeding another two named Liza and Lady, who has a litter of puppies, there are vets fees of about 20 GB pounds a month, and adding the cost of neutering, which a veterinarian friend of ours will carry out for the equivalent of 15 GB pounds, comes to 185 GB pounds per month, assuming that we neuter two of the animals per month.
On the assumption that we just keep the same number of animals (unlikely), over the next 12 months we will face costs of 2220 GB pounds – I understand that many of you animal lovers out there are not able to to help personally, but I appeal for a small donation in order that we can save our canine and feline friends on your and our behalf. Thank you for taking the time. God Bless You, and if you are able please share our post on Facebook or Twitter.

In the past weeks we have rescued a little brown and white pup that we have named Alfie. He is now aged 10 weeks. Four days ago we rescued a 4 week old Kangal (Turkish Shepherd Dog) that we have named Bella, and we were able to find loving homes for two of her sisters. My wife is currently hand feeding two 2 week old kittens as the mother has abandoned them. We are lucky to be able to buy goats milk directly from the goat farmers, a very rich source of protein for them. A busy and expensive time. Please help a little if you are able.

So difficult caring for 27 animals. Just got over a serious and contagious eye infection in the new kittens, which resulted in 4 dying and 8 having to be euthanised - so very, very upsetting. Of the remaining 6 kittens, 4 are perfect and 2 have slight eyes infections, I am bathing their eyes daily and putting drops from the vets in each of their eyes. Then this week I had to rush one of our dogs to the vets, where he was given 4 different injections, pleased to say she has fully recovered. Yesterday, one of the little kittens was snapped at by one of our dogs ( who has never done that before) for going to close to his food, she is now very ill. I am feeding her via a syringe. I could do with booking a bed for myself at the vets as I spend so much time there - the vets are so very, very good. The bills are mounting, and a little help would be gratefully received - and please do share the post. Thanks for taking the interest and time to read this.

As for the dog that we rescued - ESSO - he has turned into a lovely and strong dog who now spends his time being my shadow. xx
