To sum it up...



Rebecca and I are just a couple of girls silly in love with cats. I'm so grateful to have found a helper as silly smitten as myself...


We love the work we do in this little "orphanage love factory" and we never never tire of what we do.


But then oxytocin (also known as the love hormone) has that ability to keep you going.


How can you not be smitten??

You get a very special level of bonding with rescue cats... they have their ways of letting you know that they know you rescued them. This is Biscuit and yours truly. Yes, they do silly (fills you with smiles) things to your face!! Just look at Rebecca's face too. We're smitten girls and we're happy to admit it :-)


Yes, the above image is Biscuit (if you remember this little sad looking boy) just moments after I'd rescued him off the streets.


He's an impressive looking boy today. Unfortunately it was too late to save his right eye (image above is mirrored) but he is a giddy silly love muffin.


Would you please spare a moment and help me thank Rebecca in the comment box. It has been absolutely invaluable to us that she has come into our lives. She has a tiny human frame but she has a HUGE loving and compassionate heart. We've shared very sad moments this year (Rebecca suffered a big heartache over a kitten we simply couldn't save) but we have also shared so many moments of miraculous healing, uplift, love, light and pure joy.

And to you dear blogger friends; 
Merry Christmas to you and all your furry family members. 
Thank you for caring and making this world a better place for all animals alike.

Merry Christmas to both of you! The work you do is very important, and I'm sure even when it is sometimes heartbreaking, boys like Bisquit do wight that up. You've done an incredible job with him and he sure shows his gratitude in his way. I've got all my animals always from animal shelters, but our cat Noah just walked one time into our garden and stayed. We were looking for his previous owners but couldn't find them. Nobody seemed to miss him, so we just gave him a home. His shy to everyone except to us.
I hope you and Rebecca will forever go on with what you are doing. It's so important. Because as long as people think animals have no feelings, animals have to feel that people don't think. So let's care for them.
Have a merry Christmas with all your beloved once.

Dearest Joan & Rebecca,
Two loving ANGELS and goodness is not related to size!
What a photos and yes, with our Smokey boy whom we tried to save and nourish back to health for 14 months, we know what it means. But the others love you unconditional and there are no words to describe that joy!
Hugs and blessings to you both during this Christmas period and hats off!

Seeing Biscuit's "before" picture made me cry. But his after photo made me smile. You do such amazing work with these cats. He may have lost his right eye, but he is a gorgeous, healthy cat now. Bless you all for the wonderful work you do with all these cats!!!

Dear Joan, Thank you so much for the wonderful sentiments of love and thanks,it was such a lovely surprise to see all those pictures of me and my little ones. I am so happy to be able to contribute with the wonderful work you have developed here in Syros. The most incredible rescues of so many cats who with out a doubt would have perished if you hadn't saved them. It is such a joy for me every single day to be able to see these cats now in all their finery being just as a cat should be full of life and love. I am so lucky to say I now have so many new friends and they are a real credit to you. The icing on the cake is my wake up good morning kiss from "Buttons" my first solo rescue and then swiftly followed by the three beautiful flowers all wanting to demonstrate their love to me. It is such bliss and it makes the heartache times in this work just a little easier to bear. Thank you Joan for being as silly and smitten as me and may be both continue to be for a long time to come. Thank you also to all your readers for their kind comments and support, I am truly touched. Much love
Becky(Rebecca)
