A Different Kind of Trapping

Not my usual video, but I thought ye’d like to see a different kind of ‘trapping’. I’d a lovely day yesterday with my friend Gail, her horse May and pony Michael. I wanted to share it with you, and here’s 2.5 minutes of our 2ish hours with trap, horse and powny around the back roads […]

Visits and Memories

Have just had a lovely visit from Jackie and Karen of New Start Cat Rescue Charity in Newent, UK. Their charity took in many Irish felines over the years – from many charities over here. Coincidentally, I made a trip exactly 5 years ago. Came up on my memory feed. Had to share. Thanks guys for all you do – is […]

Adopt Warmths!

*** RESERVED *** Flare & Raze are getting their booster vaccinations today and are ready to find their forever homes. I picked them up from their fosterer, Kate, yesterday and took the opportunity of the beautimous sunny day to take a few pics of her spectacular gardens – and cats! Flame was most obliging posing […]

The Unintentional Tourist

*** RESERVED *** So Lou and I are doing our Muriel and Louise 50th birthday Tour of West Cork. And we’re coming down to Adrigole from the Healy Pass and what do we see in the middle of the road? A wee white kitten. Without any words being spoken, Lou automatically stops the car I […]

Cool Paw Luke

Lil fiesty fella turned up in my garden, feeling peckish but not particularly friendly, today. It’s market day, and I’m always suspicious when stray companions appear on market day – it’s a prime day for people to dump the living creatures they’re supposed to be caring for. But it’s feasible the wee guy is a […]

Corollo

Okay, so everything’s mayhem at work (West Cork Music – Chamber Festival in progress, Literary Festival in a coupla weeks, Masters of Tradition bookings just opened – words can’t express!) and the phone goes. Nothing unusual in that. But it’s not someone looking for tickets, it’s Hannah at the vets. She’s covering for Jennifer, who’s […]

BJ the Stray

*** GUARDIAN FOUND *** We don’t know the name of this sweet wee dog, but have temporarily called him BJ, short for Beagley JRT. He’s been wandering round Bantry market and the roadways around it today, all on his ownio. I’d spotted him, but couldn’t catch him – he was off on a mission. But I […]

SWALK

Happy Travels

A couple of weeks back I took four animals to their three forever homes for RAWR – and it gave me a great excuse to go visiting at the same time. Thought I’d share the happy travels photos with you – and three happy endings in one! First stop was Macroom with Morris (now Woofy), […]

Lost & Found Calico Charmer

*** SORTED *** This scruffy lil calico charmer was found on the Glengarriff Rd in Bantry in the past couple of days. She’s a fabulous furball of snorgalitiousnesses and may be stray. It’s also possible she’s travelled in a car – so spread the word round the wider area in case anyone’s missing their three or four […]

Cock of the Walk

Got a call from Katie today, around 5pm. She, her daughter Lola and her friend Nadia had spotted a peacock walking up Church Street in Bantry, cool as you please. So far, cars had driven round him, but the girls reckoned he wasn’t going to last long. They had him cornered in a triangle of grass and […]

And Finally …

… from KLAWS (still 5 or 6 to come from RAWR) we have six more arrivals, though Tank will be staying with me as he’s decide the UK isn’t for him, so only five for the journey. Firstly, we have the doralicious Donald and Bubbles (their brother, Tank, is included in the pics but won’t […]

Tyson & Cait Dubh

Tyson & Cait Dubh have been staying with Kate, near Glengarriff, for a few months courtesy of KLAWS. Tyson, a neutered male, is very calm and friendly towards humans, but he can be a bit of handful with older cats. He’s a stunning looking boy, with medium to long black fur and a fantastic main […]
