Josephina – the elderly lady who appeared at a nearby coffee shop a few weeks ago during the heatwave.

When we brought her into the shelter, we were convinced it would only be temporary and that she would surely be missed.

However, several weeks have passed since then, and no one has come to claim her.

Josephina’s aged, and not everything functions as well or quickly as it used to.

The dirt under her collar was inches thick when we removed it, and she also has some growths that need to be surgically removed as soon as she’s gained a little more strength.

It’s hard to understand how someone could have simply discarded this sweet, enchanting old lady who loves people so so much, especially in temperatures around 35°C, but that’s very likely what happened.

A warm welcome to the Souda Shelter family, Josephina❤️
