Bantry to Abbeyfeale and Back

I headed up to Abbeyfeale today, taking five dogs for rehoming in the UK. Bruce, who I’ve been fostering for RAWR, was one of them. And four others from KLAWS, who organised the transport and rehoming. Ellie’s off to Pups Needing Homes in Sussex, and the others to DAWG Dogs in Dorset. Bruce and I set […]

Norman’s News

Back in November 2012, Norman was surrendered to our local dog warden. I fostered this lovely wee pom cross for just over a week before we found a fab new home for him with the parents of an animal welfare friend of mine. Just got a cracking photo of him in his new home so […]

Bruce Runs Free

Bruce & I headed down to Bantry airstrip today for a wee run round and a sniff or two. He’s so reliable at sticking by my side I risked letting him off the lead – and though he didn’t come back to me straight away every time, he came back pretty quick when called. He’s […]

Gasket Says Ohai!

Meet Gasket. A rather bedraggled adult girl with some kind of eye problem, she’s the most affectionate of pusses and will be looking for her forever home in the not too distant future, when she’s recovered a bit from her ordeals. Bizarrely, I was just driving past the Dunmanway turnoff on my way home today […]

David Bagglioni

Meet Dave, our new arrival. He’s a little bit worried he’ll have difficulty finding a forever home because he’s black and he’s FIV positive. I’m trying to reassure him that he’s so adorable neither should be a problem. Firstly, Black Is Beautimous! And he IS a most beautimous cat. And, secondly, he’s a very healthy […]

Zingaro

Dumping Kills Dumping kills. And it’s illegal. Whoever just dumped this wee kitten in my back garden – congratulations! Chances are it’ll catch FIE (Feline Infectious Enteritis) and die. I’ve the virus in the house and wee things like this are particularly susceptible. Half the time when you dump a kitten it’ll die anyway – […]
