As usual the 2019 holiday season in Sicily has brought me many requests from tourists finding a cat in distress. Others have fallen n love with a feline and want to give her a home. Sometimesa I've been able tohelp, on other occasions it hasn't been possible. I'd like to make a few points that might be helpful.

1. I can't perform miracles. If someone contacts me on the eve of their returnig home it just doesn't give me eough time to try to find someone who could help.

2. Adopting a Sicilian stray takes time. Legal requirements include innoculations including the rbies vaccine. Awaiting period of 21 days after this before a pet passport and permission to trael can be obtained. Unless the adopter can return after this time the only other option is to use an agency such as Relocat which is quite epensive. Sadly it is not a question of scooping up the cat and taki g it home with you.

3. Catsnip can only function if I have sufficient funds. Please consider a donation however small.
