Care2 friends this is... THE UGLY TRUTH ABOUT CYPRUS
Cyprus is an idyllic holiday location, but it's also home to animal cruelty on a frightening scale. Cruelty to dogs and cats makes frequent headlines. Before and after the tourist season, government cleans the streets from cats and dogs in Cyprus. Many animals are poisoned and die a very painful death, others are beaten, hanged and strangled, hit by cars and left to die.
The number of birds killed on lime sticks and in mist nets in Cyprus last autumn reached number over 860,000 and the winter is devoted to hunting down what little remains of wildlife in the countryside.
Two hunting dogs kept locked up 24/7 in an old house without roof and full of junk you could imagine.

Cyprus Cats are on the facebook, too. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cyprus-cats/259881660714277
I have no so much time on the internet, but I try to share their stories with the world. These cats really are in trouble. They really need help. There are thousands and thousands cats on the street. People like me try to help them, but we are little alone. The Government do not help, we have few and small shelters, in my town there is no low cost spaying/ neutering program either.
Their life is short, the average age of the cats is two years on the street. They die in sickness what easily can be fixed by doctor. Flue, worms, infections. Accidents happen every day. There is no day when I do not see a dead cat on the road. People kills them, put poison for them, torture them. And not just the Cypriots. I think this you have to know in this country live a lot foreign people, too.
I adopted a lot of cats from the street, they live with me inside, I found home for a lot of them, I saved a lot of life, but this is still just a drop in the sea. We need TNR. I hope we will get it.

Hope we can end the suffering of animals in Cyprus for good!
