Easter dangers!

CELEBRATING Easter is always fun. Whether you’ve got a small family with just a few Easter baskets, or you’re setting up a huge, Easter-egg hunt, there are certain considerations to take into account when making sure your cats are kept safe.

Some items around Easter time can pose a threat, so it’s important to know what they are, so we can keep our cats safe and healthy.


Chocolate and sweets should be kept away from cats, at all times of the year. While some sweets might just cause an upset stomach, chocolate is toxic to cats and can cause severe illness, and even death, if ingested. If your cat has got into any chocolates, be sure to seek veterinary attention right away.


Lilies are one of the most toxic plants to cats, but they’re probably the most common Easter flower. If cats ingest the plant, flowers or even the pollen, they could face serious consequences. True lilies, like the Easter lily, cause acute renal failure in cats.

Once the kidneys are damaged, cats will need special care throughout their lives, and may not even survive the illness. The best thing to do is to keep lilies out of the house.

It’s Easter, and here is an egg-cellent idea! Please sponsor one of our long-term foster cats, for as little as three euros a month! You can choose a cat to support, and you’ll be e-mailed a personalised “pawtificate” of sponsorship, followed by updates about how he or she is getting on.
You can pay by regular standing order, a one-off payment into our bank, or by Paypal. For further details, go to or contact us by e-mail at

Our shop

We always need cat food, litter, old newspapers, sheets, towels, bedding etc for the cats and kittens in our care, and also good quality/condition items for sale in our shop.

Items in good condition can be dropped into the shop on San Blas, Golf del Sur (behind Hiperdino). It is open seven days a week, 10-6pm.

If you don’t have transport, or have large, bulky items such as furniture and household effects to donate, please ring Mark on 636590557, and he will arrange collection from you.

Shop volunteers

We are desperately short of volunteers who can spare a few hours a week, either mornings or afternoons. Never worked in a shop before? No problem. You won’t be on your own, and full training is given. Facebook PM to ask questions, or have a no-obligation chat.
