Finding a cat in Malta

Hi everyone!

I'm looking to buy and/or adopt a kitten here in Malta. I'm not looking for a show cat, just a cuddly companion. I know there is the SPCA, but I was wondering if this is the best place to go or if there are other options?

Any advice will help, thanks!

Best,

Pashala

Hi - there are loads of options as hundreds of kittens and cats get dumped by their owners every year.

sanctuaries
Thomasina Cat Sanctuary
Malta SPCA
Gozo SPCA

there are loads of groups on facebook

I actually got a cat yesterday that needed rehoming.

The person I dealt with was a woman called Antonella Bartolo and she sent me emails with pictures of the cats etc.

She can be reached on email:

antonella.bartolo[at]phoeniciamalta.com

All the Cats have been neutered or spayed and are of various ages.

Just mention my name to her :)

At Maltapark you can find really everything ... ;)

Anyhow, even it's better to adopt than buy, I'm afraid what happens to the kittens that cannot be sold ...

Antonella is one of the people who uses the facebook links I gave, and is trustworthy :-)

If you adopt you are helping to solve the problem, if you buy you are just encouraging people to breed more.

and if you get one of the rescue cats that havent been neutered its usually free to have them do ot for you - we did this but we gave a donation for the centre and towards the neutering op - my opinion this is the best way to get a cat..and ours is an absolute joy.....

Antonella has just emailed me with a young cat that is in need of a Home.

Female
Grey with white face
Ideal with family with Kids
Young cat that has already been spayed.

If you want a picture then let me know

I got my cat through Antonella, haven't looked back.

The guy who dropped her off said just please don't take her unless you're sure you'll take her with you if you leave Malta.

Our cat is still with us after moving two countries and halfway around the world.

Please dont buy adopt.
Came too Malta last year and have adopted 3 cats, a female called whisky that was hit by a car near my aunts house, and is the most loving furry animal ive ever known. (she's all recoverd now)
Taz my little black and white crazy kitty i adopted through a contact i met on Facebook, her name was Marilyn and she had him neutered for me before i got him,
And my latest addition is Mojo a persian i was asked to take on by a work colleague as her next door neighbour was keeping him in the courtyard and not taking care of him.
Plenty of Cats and Dogs that need a loving home and a chance, wish ya the best of luck.
