That's great that the ambulance is running 24hrs a day. I pray this helps to give these animals a second chance at life. Thanks Simone

I have been to Malta. The old people feed the cats because, during WWII they ate them as there was no other food, and this is to thank their descendents. There is just one rescue and they do their best. The people are very phlegmatic about it. There is a park (only the one, there are 2 others on the walls but they don't count) and cats are abandoned there regularly and the rescue group come on Sunday and collect them. There are some that live in the park all the time and they are fed regularly too.

Progress. Finally. I read the comments at the article page. They sounded encouraging, except for one that stated that sanctuaries are overloaded, among other problems. I had some trouble deciphering the comment. Anyway, I hope they stay motivated, and keep improving their efforts over time.
