Villa Kitty Bali
Villa Kitty is the only dedicated Shelter in Bali for Bali's unique and stunning Bali Cat's. Due to an outbreak of a horrible virus, all baby kittens that have at least not been tossed out or killed and forunately made it to this wonderful place, can only be kept at local Vets until fully vaccinated... This is costly and although there are alot of local supporters here who work endlessing trying to help with fostering, and finding homes etc, they need extra help from kitter lovers to pay the high vet bills, and costs to thoroughly clean the shelter... every little bit goes a long way... this is the wonderful founder, Elizabeth's heartbreaking last story:
VILLA KITTY is NOT taking anymore unvaccinated kittens until we have sanded back our entire quarantine building and then applied an oil based primer coat of paint before applying the high gloss oil based paint to all the walls and all the surfaces in our quarantine building. Why?
Yesterday morning I drove the back road for the last time with unvaccinated kittens. I drove in tears. I knew in my heart the two kittens I had in the car, Yafa and Yakov, had panleukopenia. I knew that it didn't matter how beautiful these kittens were, it didn't matter that they were already loved after only three days with their young adopter. I knew that the vet was going to say they had no option but to euthanise because this virus spreads and kills every unvaccinated kitten in its wake
If i could have kept on driving to save their lives i would have driven to Timbuktoo but there is nothing that will save the life of a tiny kitten once they have contracted Panleukopenia. Nothing.
The only way to save Bali's kittens is to vaccinate and of course this is so low on the list of what is important in Bali.
RIP Yafa & Yakov too soon (cover photo)
Footnote: Jackson Galaxy and his lovely wife spent 2 days here while in Bali, and they were impressed with what 1 wonderful lady had acheived to save and improve the lives of so many cats and kittens. Please even a $1.00 is appreciated, it goes a long way here to help...

Hi Everyone .. we are nearly there... and good news , the babies are now negative and coming home to Villa Kitty to await their furever homes. High Five to sunset vet and Villa kitty for the effort to save them... this virus is a normal death sentence for unvaccinated babies... AND big thank you to everyone here that has donated to revamp the quarantine wing and help with vet bills... every dollar helps...
Thank you! so many people who have come forward to donate to our small foundation that would not survive if it weren't for the kindness of people like all of you. We are over 1/3 of the way there in three days? It is really heart warming. This morning I wrote to a friend who is always asking after my health. It's fine by the way... I said there are times when i really just want to pack up and go home. Then I envisage myself standing in my room/office here at Villa Kitty trying to pack my things with my cats and my dogs around me. Unimaginable... We are here for the long haul... thank you for making this possible.
Thank you everyone who has been so supporting of our little foundation. This year has been the most difficult ever in our five year history. The pain watching tiny kittens die from a preventable virus is inexplicable. Our main objective is to have all the cats and kittens on Bali vaccinated but this won't happen in my life time, therefore, our next step is to ensure that those in our care are kept safe from this virus Panleukopenia. I hope we can make the total but we are so grateful to all of your who have donated so fare and the show of friendship.
This is truly amazing. $825 to go... $2,175 raised in 9 days by 51 people. Thank you. My news today is extraordinary. This morning, after my usual cat feeding in Jalan Raya, I went to Sunset Vet to visit our kittens and cats there. We have 11 in their main room. That pretty much all that were there. I was doing my "rounds" reading the record sheets and then look up and who should be looking out at me but Yafa and Yakov, the tiny kittens that started this GoFundMe campaign. Drh Wulan tested them this morning and they are negative. They would have stayed longer in isolation but sadly another of our little ones, Amed, had just tested positive. Yafa and Yakov are miracles. Two times we were to have them euthanised. The first time, I got half way back to Villa kitty and stopped the car and rang Drh Wulan. Had she euthanised them already I asked. No, she had only given them the sedative. Would they be ok. Of course, she said. That afternoon when we had exhausted all avenues trying to get the serum, I once again agreed to euthanise them, but my message was not understood and today, they are still alive, still fighting for their little lives but they are still alive... Thank you... from the bottom of my heart. Thank you
