CATS and kittens that were being tortured and killed by local youths have been rescued by the owner of a cat refuge.
People were left shocked and outraged when it was reported in the Olive Press back in August that street cats living in the El Faro area of Estepona Port were being shot and kicked to death.
The cats were also at risk due to plans to redevelop the area.
Now the owner of a cat refuge has agreed to take in and care for the cats while improvement works are taking place.
A spokesperson for ADANA, an animal charity based in Estepona, said: “The kind owner wishes to remain anonymous but our heartfelt thanks go to him or her as well as to Val Strahinja who with a loyal band of helpers, has been feeding and paying for neutering and veterinary care for these poor creatures.”
