Our Foundation owes its origin to the people I’ve met while taking care of homeless cats. They are all people with a great sensibility to the suffering of homeless cats that are chased from backyards and wandering, hungry or sick.
The name of Foundation, standing in Polish for ‘CAT’S MUM’, is not accidental. Sometimes we are delivered kittens which are very sick, frightened, and only a couple of days old. Then, just like their own mothers would, we take care of them, by stroking, nursing or providing them with medicines. We get up in the middle of the night to feed them, we fight for every cat life, no matter how frail it is. We show them they can trust people, and, like mothers, we are proud when these kittens grow up and find their new homes.
When injured cats receive love from their new families, which are sick and with no chance of survival otherwise recover and regain their vigor in our homes, we cannot stop our tears, and our hearts fill up with proud so that nobody remembers those sleepless nights and days full of fear we had to go through.
Our statutory aims include: helping cats, especially homeless ones and educating society – teaching respect for animals (with focus on cats).
Cats are in the center of our activities but as time passed, our foundation also began to engage its resources in other spheres.
We help sick children and lonely mothers, we organize workhops in hospitals, We also prepared a concept of educational lessons in kindergardens and schools.
In 2015 we educated 2600 children in Lodzkie Region and in 2016 approx. 2200.Social campaigns is another way of realizing our statutory aim on education. In our everyday work of helping abandoned cats, we face different stereotypes or pagan beliefs which originate from the lack of knowledge. We need to fight them if we wish to end cats’ homelessness. It is working on grass roots. Hence the idea of social and information campaigns including: diseases spread by cats, pregnancy vs. taking care of cat; what to do with cat during holidays etc.
Kocia Mama has broad experience in social and information campaigns in local media and social media. It cooperates with regional and local government, NGOs, cultural institutions.
KOCIA MAMA is a non-profit foundation. Helps to solve any kind of problem which deals with cats.We would not be able to do it without the unconditional support of our group members and this is why we ask for help. If you decide to support us , it is always up to you in what way you help our cause we would be grateful for any gesture. We continually appeal to all the people with big hearts for support, We have also opened a bank account if you would like to donate some money for our cats in need.
We really believe in people of good will!
