Sterilizing female cats as well as males is important: a single male cat can father many litters, and each female can produce three litters per year, with several kittens per litter. Not only are these kittens unwanted, but they live miserable lives on the street if they survive dumping, poisoning, drowning, shooting, or worse. And then they reproduce, perpetuating the cycle.
Street Cats of Vis wants to help stop this cycle and stabilize the cat population on the island. We can get cats sterilized, but we depend on donations to do so. Our fundraising page is currently closed while we figure out another solution: if you’re able to contribute to the cause, please contact us by email.
