Clean-up of Community Cat living spaces
On Friday morning, 17th February 2023, the cat-aholics went out to clean the "Hammer Gym" area, which is the parking lot next to King Salman Mosque in Male'. We collected four bags of large trash bags, full of (human) waste, mostly paper cups, plastic bottles and energy drink cans. The community cats were fed, given treats and got anti-flea spot-on treatment.

During the Dive event party, a presentation was held by marine biologist Verena about the status of animal protection in the Maldives.
