We are a group of young people, ready to dedicate some of our time for the benefit of others. This time we decided to clean a shelter for abandoned cats near the city of Izola. The shelter is taken care of by a volunteer and humanitarian activist called Ms Milena. Around fifty cats dwell in the house and they all need food, fresh water, sand for the litter tray as well as some daily cuddles. Although Ms Milena frequently gets some help with cleaning the living areas, she is basically looking after the cats on her own. So we decided to offer her a helping hand.
When the work was almost completed, we were offered some tea to warm up. We enjoyed a pleasant chat with Ms Milena, who was very grateful for this unexpected support. By the time we left the house, we felt pleased and satisfied that we had been able to provide a meaningful service.
