It looks like real winter has begun. After a short period of weird, sunny, spring-like weather, totally atypical for this time of year, the icy cold started to tighten its grip and the outdoor temperatures plummeted far below zero a couple of days ago.

We haven’t had any snow yet and no paw prints are visible across the hard and mostly bare ground that’s covered in a layer of frost, but it’s freezing nonetheless.

Central heating has been working day and night over the last couple of months to keep the kitties warm as we fortunately still had some heating fuel left from last year’s purchase, but our gas tank is emptying rapidly and right now we have just enough gas for 10 more days.

If we fail to raise the funds for a new tank of gas in a flash, we’ll have no choice except to switch to the electric heaters which can’t warm up the house and all of the cats’ rooms sufficiently, not to mention that the electricity bills will be skyrocketing.

The costs of cat food and vet care alone are enormous all year round and when you add the cost of heating fuel during the cold season, it’s a complete disaster. Winter is always hard for a cat sanctuary with a three-digit number of fragile and delicate little furry creatures, many of which are well beyond their golden years and without proper heating their chances of making it through the winter are frighteningly low.

We know we should have asked for help earlier as this is the worst possible time for fundraising and we totally understand that most people have wiped out their savings and are struggling to get their finances back on track after the holidays, but we’re dealing with a true emergency and we hope you’ll be able to lend us a helping hand yet again.

Whatever amount you are able to give will be received with heartfelt gratitude, because every donation is literally saving lives!

We are doing everything we can and then some to stay afloat and give each of the Felix kitties a fighting chance to see another spring, but we will be lost if you don’t step in!

THANK YOU.

Past features for the same request:

Please note the petition on the first link is no longer running.

We have got the gas to keep the kitties warm in the past years – lets go for it again now. Please give anything you can, no matter how small; it all adds up.

Please see the gas arriving in past years in some of the photos in the following links – so lets repeat this for the new year.

Thanks SAV.
