Noria and Cinza

Cinza and Noria arrived in a box, 2 weeks old and making a noise that sounded more like birds having a serious discussion.

We were asked to take care of the litter they were part of, the mother had died because of unknown reasons and a surrogate female cat was not at hand.

We are part of a chain of people who care for domestic animals in need. Argentina does not have the ASPCA-like organisations known in the North and so the private initiative we are part of, exists to try to cope where officially recognised care leaves off.

Because of this lack of organised care of animals there is a huge population of strays in Argentina, living off of what the streets have to offer.

Many people 'have' a stray or two, meaning they put out food and sometimes a box as shelter. It's a depressing situation, as one can only care for so many animals while there are many more out there, including pedigree dogs and cats thrown out for whatever reason.

We've cared for Border Collies, English Sheepdogs, Schnautzers, Poodles, Siamese cats, A Turkish Van (yes, with differently coloured eyes..) apart from an army of mixed breeds.

Noria and Cinza now both have a home where they are well cared for.

Cat Food
by: Anonymous

Hello everyone!

Can Anyone tell me what kind of cat food can be found in Buenos Aires? I'm searching for a well-known brand that can also be found in the US.

Those gray cats looked super sweet. I will probably end up trying to adopt quite a few strays when I am there..

Every adoption is a happy story

Hi Sebastián. Nice hearing from Argentina - and I'm glad you found a home for those two beauties. None of us can solve the problems of every cat in the World, but everyone saved and adopted is a happy story for both cats and humans. Thank you for making a difference. 🙂
Feeding the strays like you say many people do, is an act of kindness and I would never speak out against it, but it doesn't solve the feral problem. To me TNR (trap, neuter, return) seems the best way to control the ferals of a local area, but I know it is quite costly to run such a project.

Hi Sebastián. It is great to hear from Beunos Aires. It is the first time for this site as far as I remember.

But sad to hear that you have similar problems with stray and feral cats to those in North America and indeed the UK.

But nice to know there are good people like you to care. Good luck.

I moved your post to the moggie cats page.
