In cooperation with private individuals and citizen organisations, the Veterinary Clinic of the Cyclades leads the way and takes initiatives to improve the lives of cats on our island.
The cats of Syros are an integral part of the Cycladic landscape. We have been living together for hundreds of years and it is up to us to help them have better and longer lives, going against wrong attitudes and beliefs. Cat makes a perfect pet.
The sterilisation week, as it has come to be called, involves the sterilisation of a large number of cats in a short period of time. This aims to limit uncontrolled births that result in thousands of kittens that will live a very short life. They are literally doomed to die.
Working together with the Syros Photography Club, we organised a very successful exhibition in August 2012 on the cats of Syros.
As part of providing correct and accurate information on cat-related issues, we run a blog at syroscats.blogspot.gr. This blog also serves as a space for posting “unclaimed” cats in need of responsible owners. For more information visit our blog.
