The Animal Party on Sunday issued a warning about municipalities and communities that were ‘making strenuous efforts” to ban public feeding areas for dogs and cats around the island.
The party did not specify which communities those might be.
“We call on them, instead of thinking and drawing up negatively designed plans against animal welfare and well-being, to better upgrade themselves to a European level to find imaginative ways of feeding abandoned cats or dogs, and that show they care rather than being bothered,” the party said.
It cited examples from Turkey and Greece and other European countries where action is being taken to feed strays.
The party said the municipalities of Thessaloniki in Greece and Istanbul in Turkey had begun to feeders in central parts of the city, and added that it was aware that discussions were taking place in Limassol to do the same.
“Similar measures are taken in Madrid,” it added.
