My name is Danica Mirkovic, I’m the president of Felinologic Association Felix and the owner of Cat Shelter Felix (it’s more of a sanctuary) in Serbia. Felinologic Association Felix is an association of cat lovers, founded by my associates and myself in Novi Sad, Serbia, a few years ago. It is registered as a nonprofit organization in Serbian Business Registers Agency, ID number: 08841187, Tax Identification Number: 103793133. We were taking care of stray cats, trying to make their lives on the street easier, but our proteges were endangered all of the time. I have always thought that the building of a shelter would mean safety for these (and other) cats so it finally took place in 2010. When I found Milance as a little kitten whose hind legs had been cut off while he was living on the street, I knew that it was time to make a move.
Cat Shelter Felix is the first registered cat shelter in Serbia, located in a small village in the Vojvodina region of Serbia. I have 115 cats in my shelter right now, all of them ex – strays. They are all neutered and spayed, vaccinated and checked by the vet on a regular basis and although some of them are very old, disabled or chronically ill, it seems that they enjoy their lives here.
In spite of the fact that my shelter is rather crowded, I can never turn my back on a cat in a desperate situation. Therefore they keep arriving every now and then. As the number of cats grows larger, my expenses also grow and it becomes harder and harder to defray them all, but the sight of happy kitties that are playing, running and resting, completely relaxed, probably for the first time in their lives, makes all of the effort worthwhile.
Cat Shelter Felix is not just a shelter, it's also the only cat sanctuary in Serbia, a unique cat haven with plenty of open spaces where all of the rescued cats are provided with a lifetime of care in a cage-free environment. None of the cats are, nor will be, put up for adoption, they will stay here for as long as they live.
My shelter depends entirely on donations and every kind of help is needed, welcomed and greatly appreciated.
