Following the Canterbury earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, the ‘residential red zone’ was created in eastern Christchurch. Thousands of people had to leave their homes. As a result, many cats were abandoned and left to fend for themselves.
These cats are rarely seen, but are hiding everywhere. Most are hungry and afraid. Some are in pain. Many had homes once, but were lost during the earthquakes, or when people moved away. Others are the offspring of lost and feral cats and have never had a home.
THESE CATS NEED OUR HELP.
