Äiti has just shown me a film about The Moggery ! Please take the time to watch it if you want to know about English cats and where my lovely family came from ! It is quite a shock to see so many cats, and Christine and all the volunteers who look after them. There was also a shot of the vet that everyone went to which was two minutes from Äiti's old house - that made Veli Stran and Veli Lewis shudder a little as they remember her (she is very nice though and helped everyone a lot, so we do like her). And Täti Lydia was on it too - she fed my family when Äiti came here to get the flat ready for their grand arrival! She bought roast chicken everyday for them. I like the sound of her!
But it is sad too - so many cats that need homes. Many sad stories and cats who have not had a good start. Without The Moggery, I would have no family so it is a very important place.

Lovely cats and lovely people in a film! :)

It seemed very familiar: cats, food, litters, toys and volunteers. It is very important that there is people that are dedicated to animals.

There is finally the own house to cats, dogs and other animels in Riihimäki: www.elaintenauttajat.org

Kiitos! Thank you for this link. It is many kilometres from me, otherwise I would try to go there to help. There are two smaller places here nearer Oulu.
I felt very sad watching the video as so many of the cats have been at The Moggery for a long time but it is really important they do not 'put to sleep' the animals unless they are sick. A friend of mine adopted a lovely old cat (maybe 15 years, maybe more) who had been thrown away onto a rubbish heap, in a sealed up plastic bag. She has had a lovely life since recovering from that horrible experience.

Many cats still get too little care and attention at homes and outside them. They won't get neutered and a vet never sees them. :( Many people think they are "vain kissoja".

I also had tears in my eyes when I watched the video. They took so good care of the cats. :)

As your Aiti can tell, that Mami has been very busy this week. But if your Aiti is interresteed http://www.raahenseudunesy.net, Mani could be able to spent one Saturday with in month in Raahe.

I have had an awful week. Mami and the Man has been somewhere all evenings. Luckily my Man has been home all day to day <3. Mami just hunts food to me, but the Man is my person <3.
