About Zwerfkat in Le(u)ven

Zwerfkat in Le(u)ven was founded in 2014. Since then, we have saved more than 2000 cats and kittens from street life in Leuven. All cats and kittens are put up for adoption where possible. Through your contributions you support 100% of the hard work of our volunteers. Make a difference! The purchase of vaccines, baby formula for our kittens, sterilization of our mummy cats, veterinary costs for the cure of sick animals. You name it. It costs a lot of money and we need your support more than ever.

Opvangertje Cleo blijft definitief bij ZIL wonen en zoekt vele meters en peters !

Door mijn hogere leeftijd, blindheid en medische noden heeft het team van ZIL besloten me niet meer te laten adopteren maar permanent onder te brengen bij mijn opvanggezin omdat ze ervaring hebben met seniorenkatjes, en dat voor de rest van mijn leven.

Ik ga nu op zoek naar meerdere permanente meters en peters die me mee willen ondersteunen. Want mijn maandelijkse medische kosten lopen torenhoog op.

Als je me wil helpen kan je vaste meter/peter van me worden. Klik daarvoor op mijn foto hiernaast.

Dikke knuffels van je misschien toekomstige mete- of petekindje Cleo ❤
