During Bristol Yoga Centre’s first ever yoga retreat to Tarifa, Spain, we have adopted two lovely cats!
We found them in a horrible run down animal shack 5 minutes away from the villa. They were obviously from a domestic environment as both of them were extremely friendly and tame.
To try and get these cats to be rehomed, we contacted local vets and animal shelters. Most people wanted to help but they were already inundated with abandoned cats and dogs. So, we made the difficult decision to adopt them and bring them back to the UK.
Full story can be found here. We were asked by Soto Cat’s Rescue organisation in Spain to write about our experience to inspire others. They are a non-profit organisation committed to fight against widespread animal abuse and cruelty, such as poisoning, abandonment and ill-treatment of cats.
We are still in the process of organising Mia and Maria to be transported to the UK. It’s been quite challenging but I’m sure we will manage to bring them here soon.
Thank you to Soto Cat Rescue, Spanish Stray Cats, Paws Transport Service and Clinica Veterinaria Europa for all their help and information. Also to Lawal Brown, one of the retreat participants for helping us take them to the vet!
