ADVICE TO TOURISTS
WHAT DO I DO IF I FIND AN INJURED OR SICK CAT OR KITTEN?
Do's and Don'ts
Don't remove a kitten straight away if you find one on its own. Please observe it from a distance for a while before picking it up. The mother may be near by and coming back to it.
Do take ill or injured street cats and kittens to the nearest vet if you can. We work closely with Moixica in Puerto Pollensa. Please contact us if you need to borrow a cat carrier or need advice.
Do be careful where you feed animals. They can be unwelcome in some restaurants and other customers might not like them. This can lead to restaurant owners taking brutal action. If staying in a villa, please feed away from the villa as other guests may not appreciate cats on their door step.
Do contact us if you wish to help feed the stray cats, and we can advise as we have special feeding places.
Do feed any leftover meat or fish to stray cats by the nearest rubbish bins or in a quiet place where you may see them congregating.
Do keep some dry cat food with you to feed to any hungry strays you may come across.
Do remember strays need water as well as food.
Don’t give cats or kittens milk. It will give them diarrhoea. Contact us for advice.
