We adopted Lulu from an animal shelter 7-8 years ago. She is an extremely friendly and easy to take care of medium sized Cyprus Terrier about 9 years old. She is more comfortable with elder people than with children as she herself is quite old. We will be leaving Cyprus soon and we need to find a new home for her. Please contact me for more information and photos. Thank you...

Lulu understands Turkish and English. She doesn't need someone to walk her around. She can do that herself once she learns her way (provided that she lives in a quiet neighbourhood). She will scratch the door and let you know she needs to go out. When she's done, she will scratch the door to come in. She's really smart and independent.

Sometimes we come to crossroads where we have to make very important decisions. Lulu isn't the only pet I'm trying to find a home for. There is also Cara, another oldish dog, Minik, a beautiful female cat, Arap, a handsome black cat, Lili, a sweet female cat... I've done my best to provide them a safe environment. From all my pets, I've decided to keep Shaky, a spastic (Cerebellum Hypoplasia) and hermaphrodite cat. I'will take him/her with me when I leave Cyprus because he/she is dependent on me. Lulu is an independent old soul. She is great company and loves everyone who is nice to her. I simply hope to find loving souls who will adopt the rest of my furry friends who are not so dependent on me. Hope that answers your question?

An elderly couple or elder person would find Lulu comforting and easy to look after as she is very gentle and loving and also a great companion.

Lulu is very healthy. She misses a few teeth. Other than that she doesn't have any health problems.

Good luck it is very difficult to find homes these days with everybody leaving. Funny the way everyone just assumes that you are heading for the UK. If I did not have a multitude of rescued animals myself I would offer to have her.



I have a multitude of animals that I could not possibly afford to take with me should I ever leave but whilst I am here they have a loving home, plenty of love and plenty of food and vet bills paid.

An animal is for life, why take on these animals if you don't intend to care for them?

People need to think carefully before taking on a pet, pets have costs involved.

Roma, so nice to have someone else agree with, and understand the situation on here with stray animals. I have been saying it for ages, that while we may take in a lot of homeless animals, feed and look after them, we did not initially want them. Many of us have our pets and then strays, and unfortunately there can be a difference. If ever I decide to leave here, of course I would take my own cats, but not the 5/6 I feed every day. I believe the cost of transporting the animals via KAR was 600 each, now when you multiply that by however many strays people have, that can be a lot of money. Then there is the problem of finding somewhere to live in your next country, that will take pets. So what is the answer? give the strays a good life for however long is possible, or ignore the starving animals when they come to your door? Perhaps Rowan can answer this.

Thank you so much. I so understand you. I only wanted one dog but God gave me a dozen cats (one of them HAD to be a spastic who needs special attention and has to be kept indoors!) and an extra dog! I never asked them to come. They all came to me. I just couldn't pretend they weren't there and avoid their pleas for food and protection... We spend a lot of money on cat and dog food but I don't mind that at all. The thing is I am a Turk and live in a neighbourhood in Nicosia consisting of Turks and Turkish Cypriots who think I'm nuts. Who in their right mind would keep so many cats and dogs? Also, many of my neighbours don't like cats and have a grudge against me because I feed them. I have a feeling they will be relieved to see me leave



Good luck with your God-sent guests...

Blade,

Why can't a person look after an animal temporarily.

At least for that time the amimal is getting something.

I think part of the problem is the way the OP describes these animals as "Pets", and then basically tries to get rid of them like furniture. If they are strays that turned up and were fed, then I agree with Stella, but to offload a number of elderly Pets in this way seems "wrong".

I'd appreciate it very much if someone could direct me to relevant web sites where I can post Lulu's ad. I found this web site by chance. I am not sure Lulu has a chance with petfriendly locals as they tend to prefer imported breeds to their own breeds...

Have you spoken to people at the Animal Shelter from where you adopted Lulu. I believe that they ask that if for any reason you are unable to look after the animal you adopted you get back in touch with them.

Thanks for the tips. I'll do as you say. I am deeply sorry to say that the British couple who was in charge of Besparmak Animal Shelter were cruelly killed short after we adopted Lulu. I am nor even sure if the shelter still exists. Lulu was one of their daughters and perhaps that's why she understands English...
