Tips & Bandit, Rianior & Rowan

I’ve recently been reminded of lil Bandit, the first kitten to die in my care. She contracted the wet form of FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis), a terminal condition (not infectious, despite it’s name) that some cats are genetically predisposed to. I couldn’t believe, but had to accept, there was nothing we could do for her. To […]

Little Dog Lost

*** SORTED *** Sparky found his guardian and has been returned to him. He is now sporting a lovely new collar and will be neutered & microchipped soon. Original post follows: Found wandering in Bantry town this morning – anyone recognise him? Will pop in to Jen when she’s in to get microchip check – […]

Day 27 – Kittens Growing Up

Day 27, and we thought you’d like to see how the kittens are doing. Nearly four weeks old, they’re now running around the place, starting to eat solids and … *drum roll* … using their litter trays! Aren’t they good? Their eyes’ll be blue for another couple of weeks yet – they’ll turn green at […]

Sunbeams & Kitten Dreams

Shane’s brilliant keeping us posted on Tara, and just sent us this photo of Tara enjoying the spectacular weather. She was homed with him earlier in the year – a wee bit timid, but affectionate once she gets to know you – and she’s settled in grand. Doesn’t she look queen of the walk? Love […]

Larry Likes Dawgs

Jen came round with Maple recently, and all three of us popped in to visit Larry. And Larry was fascinated by Maple (Maple, I have to say, was not so impressed with Larry!). As soon as he saw Maple, Larry was following her round the room with enthusiasm – would this big creature play with […]

12 Days Old

Tracey, the lady who asked for help for the Hole in the Wall Gang, thought they’d been born either Wednesday 15th or Thursday 16th May 2013. So they were around four or five days old when I picked them up in Clonakilty. This Monday they were around 12 days old. And I visited Carla, their […]

Larry’s Therapy

Poor Larry was rather snot ridden when he arrived. Antibiotics prescribed, he was still having a wee bit of trouble breathing. The vet had wondered if it was possible to do the equivalent of a Vics steaming-hot-water-basin-with-towel-over-head equivalent – like mum used to force me to do when I’d trouble breathing (bless her). We didn’t […]

The Hole in the Wall Gang

I got a call from Cork CAT a couple of weekends ago – kittens had just been born in a hole in a wall, not far from Supervalu in Clonakilty. They were accessible to local dogs, and in road pizza danger once they were mobile. Ann was off on holiday (Holiday? What’s that then?) and […]

Inky’s Looking Good!

Inky’s been with me for three months now – how’d that happen? She’s hoping to travel to London to be with her long-lost family, but my UK trips have been postponed for a few months, so she’s staying with me in the meantime. I’m sure you’ll remember her story (if not, check the links below) […]

Larry’s Here!

I picked up Larry on Tuesday, now fully vaccinated and ready to spend a wee bit of time with me till he finds his forever home. He’s still a bit snotty, so won’t actually be looking for his new home till that clears up, but I thought I’d take the opportunity to introduce you to […]

Larry

Larry’s a big, handsome, affectionate ginger tom with whiskers to die for. He came from Abbeyfeale where his guardian was unable to cope with her colony of 14 cats. If she’d neutered the original pair she wouldn’t have had a problem. Now she’s passed her problem on to poor Larry – he needs a new […]

Maple Syrup

*** REHOMED *** Friendly but timid, no collar, no tag. A friend of mine, remembering the unknown, unwanted, unhelped stray that was runover on Valentine’s day (story here), picked Maple up and dropped her with Jenni.

G Spot

Gerry’s got a special Spot (what else did you think I meant by G Spot???). Give him a ticklol at the base of his spine and he goes most peculiar. Just thought I’d share 😉 Note: Gerry’s still looking for his forever home!

Happy Endings

A Happy Ending! You  might remember Gasket, an auld girl who joined us back in February, found in a car engine in Dunmanway? We’ve spectacular news – she’s going home! Gasket was microchipped!!! It’s the first time a rescue cat that’s come to me has been chipped – and it’s such a rush to know they’ve […]
