Fostering again...

So apart from some ferals we are hoping to socialise for the local shelter, we will be fostering a poor little boy from Egypt, named Shafiq, but we are thinking of him also as Cecil, in memory of Cecil the Lion, as he's a bit of a lion himself, in between being a bit 'oven ready' having been shaved because of the fungal infection on his skin. 
We need to raise a few bob to help him be transported. Here's the link to the fundraiser:

Adopt, don't buy

I know there are needy cats in the UK, but in general, those in shelters are at least safe... not so in many other countries. 
I just want to make an appeal on behalf of the amazing Manuela Wroblewski, who walks miles to feed hundreds of stray cats, and who tries to get them neutered, in Avsellar, Turkey. Meher Toorkey, her associate is a tireless advocate for animals too.   This is one of the parts of the world that it is not good to be a cat. 
When adopted, foreign cats are, on the whole, so loving and grateful.  Our own 'Turkish delight', Gypsy, is so happy, I don't think he realises that there is any position for a tail except straight up in the air!  Please have a look at this page and consider adopting a little Turkish delight of your own...
