CATS IN MARRAKESH

More and more uncastrated stray cats live in Marakesh. Those animals reproduce themselves uncontrollably and spread diseases this way. They also molest locals and tourists. The stray animals suffer a lot as they don’t get any medical help in case of sickness or injuries but they get poisoned with strychnine. Inorder to put an end to that situation in the long run, it is necessary to have every stray cat castrated.

Keeping in mind that every sexually mature cat can produce 4 to 6 kitten twice a year one can easily imagine how the situation gets more and more critical. The population of homeless wild cats is already huge and keeps growing every day.

PROGRAMME FOR CONTROL OF STRAY CATS
In Marrakesh exists an enormous number of stray cats who find food in the hotels or trash cans. Because those animals are not under any control there is a risk of passing on diseases. At the hotel compounds the huge number of cats either molests guests or gets their pity. As a result the veterinaries are called and the animals are caught and poisoned.

OUR SUGGESTION
We catch the animals at the hotel compounds. After having them medically checked the cats are being vaccinated and get dewormed. Each animal gets a chip on a non-removable collar with the date of the treatment on it. Afterwards they are taken back to their place. There should be a „cat restaurant“ and the hotel is obliged to feed the cats every day. This way the guests will no longer be molested. As cats always defend their territory, the number of cats won’t grow. In addition to that they will diminish the number of rats and mice for free. A sign at the cat house informs you about the fact that the animals have been vaccinated, dewormed and castrated. The animals are checked on a regular basis. So this programme lowers the risk of disease transmission to a minimum and a big part of the cat population is under control.
