A colleague of ours has found a cat believed to be a Pedigree Rag Doll. He was found in a very poor condition, wet, scruffy, dirty, worms, fleas etc.he was not neutered and he has no chip.
He has been restored to good health now and has been wormed, flead and castrated and is looking alot better.
This type of cat cannot live outdoors as the cats do in this country, he must have been brought here from another European country or bred from one that has been brought here. They cannot and will not defend themselves against other cats and do not like being away from their human carers.
If anyone knows where this cat could have come from or have lost a cat like that please contact us. He was found on the road around Dassia, Tsavros junction area.
It is doubtful that we would find the owner and are also looking for anyone who would be willing to give it a home or at least foster it for a while.
If rehoming it on the Island fails then we would consider helping someone to passport it and rehome it in the UK.
If anyone can help in any way please contact me here by pm or you can telephone me on 26630 91780

That is such a shame. The poor mite, This is a breed that is a human "created" breed and so as you say, does not understand how to live outside.
As you know I breed, show and adore Maine Coons. But I also have close dealing with a lot of breeders/clubs/Judges so if you do need to relocate him to the UK. Please let me know if I can be of any help.

I have a very long shot, I will drop my friend Voola an e-mail via Samis. Voola is a wonderful Greek friend in Moritika who understands the needs of a pedigree cat and the need for indoor living. It's a long shot but she just might be able to help.
She owns a Turkish Van that she imported a few years ago. He/she is her second as her first one used to free roam and so her neighbours poisoned it.
Voola is a wonderful lady. I'll drop her a line and if I get any news I will let you know
Yep, over here all breed clubs have a rescue/rehoming secretary. Most breeds have two clubs, also there are other clubs that deal with "type" ie Semi Longhaired's

I know the breed a little as I now steward in the SLH section and the entire Raggie boy's are interested, but not that interested;o)) Bit like my MC boy. Likes girls handed to him on a plate;o)))
I have to agree with you on what you think has happened. I'll let you know what happens with Voola. But she isn't computer savie so may take time.
I know we have spoke in depth about our eventual reocation with mob, but this is nothing I could dream of doing. They are our family. It also makes me sad we can't be there now, as there would have been no question, he would have been more than welcome to join our rabble.
Actually worst case and he has to come to the UK, all be it for a short while, he can come to us here.
I really do admire the wonderful work you do, and I have already agreed with W that I will be doing what I can to help when we get there.
