Following a proposal from the GAB animal welfare group in Benalmádena, the local council has installed 116 feral cat boxes in several areas of the town at a cost of 30,000 euros.

The councillor for Citizen Participation, Pablo Centella, paid tribute to the work of the GAB, which has looked after the feral cat colonies in the town for years.

GAB President Lucía López said that the group controls all the stray cats, sterilising and registering them in collaboration with the Department of Health. López said that "Benalmádena is the most advanced municipality in Malaga province in these matters".

She added that the aim of the boxes "is not to provide a place for people to abandon their cats, but to give shelter to street animals".
