As a thought Kyproskissat ry was born in 2019, when Krista was in Cyprus getting her second own cat home to Finland. We strolled around the park further away from the colony Valeria takes care of and met cats we could not help. The little bobtailed girl and boy with an eye issue were left there, where we found them, since they had nowhere to go, no one with space enough to take them in. We wished we could do more and Krista started to think about the possibility of founding an organization of our own.

In 2022 the adoptions from Cyprus to Germany started to dwindle as the local shelters filled with cats people had gotten while isolating because of covid. Valeria needed help and Kyproskissat ry was finally founded to provide a new avenue for her cats to find fostering and adoption, this time in Finland. The papers were written on the 5th of February 2022 and the organization was officially registered on the 9th of February 2022. The first of our cats came to Finland to search for their homes on the 24th of April 2022 and within that first incomplete year 50 cats in total were adopted through our organization.

2023 was our first full year of activity and within that year a total of 106 cats were adopted to Finland through us. That same year our honorary membership was granted to Evita Charalambous and Marina Tryphonos who had been working with us basically since day one. The supporters of our organization were given the opportunity to join as supporting members and along with that we started writing our own newsletter.
