Lutwala Dive has always been eager to help rescue and care for our island cats and recently we teamed up with the Cats of Gili to create a Cat Hospital at Lutwala Dive. We care for strays as well as beloved household pets. Our General Manager, Tori was a Vet Technician in her previous life so provides all the needed medical care to the cats of Gili Trawangan, while Susanna, of Cats of Gili, assists with getting supplies and finding homes for the cats. This is a not-for-profit organisation and the medical supplies can be very expensive so please feel free to donate.
We also have a number of household cats that live on the premises. Every cat here has been rescued and has its own unique story to tell. We understand that people may have allergies and we do our best to keep them out of the bungalows, but you will see many cats lying about during your time here. Lutwala’s cat are all sterilised,wormed, treated for fleas, and inoculated regularly. Please rest assured that being around our cats will not harm you or your family in any way.
As a point of interest, Gili cats are bred from a very small gene pool and they have genetic defects such as deformed tails & shortened life spans.
