Constance’s Cat Program

For a healthy cat population in Montefiore dell’Aso, Le Marche, Italy

Constance’s Cat Program is a non-profit initiative operated by donations. The program is all about achieving a healthy cat population in Montefiore dell’Aso, Le Marche, Italy.

My name is Constance Jacobs. In the streets of historic Montefiore dell’Aso I come across many stray cats, every day. The population grows and grows, simply because more kittens are born every time again and sterilization is not very common in this area. Some cats are in reasonable condition, but unfortunately many are not. I already take care of a few of the cats by feeding them, giving them the medical care they need and also giving them a loving home, but I need some help to prevent the situation to get out of control.

How I plan on doing this?

  • Sterilize the stray cats (female and male) to prevent the population to grow radically and therefore prevent there will be more homeless cats and more unnecessary suffering.

Every female cat can have 2-3 litters with an average of 4-5 kittens per year! Due to all kinds of health problems some kittens don’t make it or remain disabled.

  • Give medical care to the cats that need it.

Many kittens are born with the Feline Herpesvirus (FHV) passed on through the mother cat. It often causes severely infected eyes; if not treated they can become blind. Also other infections (intestines, paws, bronchitis) or injuries occur and need treatment.

  • Give the cats wormers and flea- / tick treatment.

The parasites not only are a nuisance and cause irritation of the cat’s skin, but also pass on all kinds of diseases which can be dangerous to other pets and also sometimes humans.
After the cats are sterilized and treated they either go back out again or I try to find a good, loving home for them. When the cats go out again they will be fed and taken care of and can live a free and fearless life.

A few numbers

  • Stray cats I have counted so far: 19 (10 male, 4 female, 5 kittens)
  • Cost of sterilization male cat € 50,- (incl. necessary medication)
  • Cost of sterilization female cat € 120,- (incl. necessary medication)
  • Cost of antibiotics adult cat € 7,- per injection (mostly need 3)

The VET

I already work together with a very dedicated veterinarian who appreciates what I do for the stray cats and therefore gives me a discount and does not charge me a consult. I am absolutely very grateful for that because it simply means I can help more cats!
