Homeless cats have a cruel, torturous life: abandoned, hungry, ill, injured, mistreated and abused.

Santorini’s stray cats often end up being killed, poisoned, drowned or dumped alive.

Sterilized cats have better and healthier lives

  • Less emaciated, sick male and female cats transmitting sexual and other diseases
  • Less mammary tumours and heat cycles for female cats; less unwanted, disposed of kittens
  • Less wandering, less accident/fight injuries; less meowing/spraying/noise

Cheer up when you detect an ear-clipped (EC) cat!

  • The ear clipping is the only possibility to clearly/quickly recognize a neutered cat from a distance
  • It saves cats from (re-)operations and unnecessary stress (capturing)
  • The clipping takes place under anesthesia (when neutering); it is painless and has no impact either on the behavior of the cat or the ear function
  • It is internationally accepted as a sign for neutered/spayed cats
