Φαρμα αδεσποτων ζωων Adopt a cat is a registered animal welfare organization on the island Kythira and has been founded by Irene van Klinken.
Over the years she managed to neuter and vaccinate over 1500 cats on the island. Soon it became clear that much more needed to be done for the animals on the island.
However this could only be realized if she could get financial help, so Adopt a cat was born.
On this website you'll find information on what has been done for the animals on the island and her plans and goals to give the animals on Kythira a better, happier and healthier life.
If you have any questions or requests feel free to contact her. All information can be found under the tab "Contact"

Irene first set foot on Kythira in 2005. It didn't take long for her to realize she was home.
By the end of 2007, she left Holland and moved to Kythira to start a new life.
Slowly it became clear that her calling on the island would be taking care of the animals and making sure that they got a better, happier and healthier life.
First of all she started up a program to have the cats on the island neutered and vaccinated.
On top of this she took care of them, fed the ones in need and supported people on the island who needed help looking after their animals. this has lead her to create the organization that it is now.
I started "Adopt a Cat" to get some control on the cat population on Kythira,
Adopt a cat is a well known, respected and registered business.
I see a positive change in the behavior towards animals on the island but of course there's still a lot to do. You can help by supporting a cat on Kythira,
