THE CATTERY


The situation of cats in Rumania
Despite what one might expect, the situation of stray cats in Rumania is not as desperate as that of stray dogs, except in areas where the massacre of stray dogs is so efficient that space has been left to massacre cats (as in some areas of central Bucharest and in the port of Costanza). Obviously there are many irresponsible owners that abandon kittens or adult cats, in practice serving them a death sentence.

The Cernavoda cattery
In Cernavoda STD has created a small structure which can give hospitality to up to around 30 cats, almost all of which have been abandoned near the refuge (the most common scenario), but which are sometimes are victims of injuries from other animals, road accidents or simply ill). When the number of guests goes over 30, STD tries to send the more sociable cats to Milan and Bologna for adoption. Rumanian cats are in fact extremely sociable and affectionate, and this helps them to be adopted more easily.

We carry out numerous sterilisations in the clinic in Cernavoda, at the temporary refuge in Medgidia and with the mobile clinic. We treat strays but also many cats with owners; private owners are much more likely to sterilise their cats than their dogs.
