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 […]

Tiny Tot Needing Mothering

*** Foster sorted – still looking for a home!!! *** [Update: Big thanks to Sara of SNIP for taking this wee baby in!!!] Christina picked up this tiny wee kitten in Mallow recently. We think might be a wee girl, but not 100% sure. Her eyes are blue so she must be under six weeks, maybe as […]

Flare & Raze on Vacation

*** RESERVED *** You might remember Flare & Raze’s story from last week – a lovely brother & sister pair looking for their forever home. Well, I had the pleasure of getting to know this pair better yesterday, when I took them for a wee holiday with their new foster Kate. They’re going to stay […]

Friar Tuck

*** REHOMED *** Lil update on the black fella in with the MnMs – he’s called Tuck, and wait till I tell you why … poor soul had a large abscess on his forehead when he was taken in. He was stray and no-one had helped him and what could have been easily treated had become […]

MnMs & Friends

I originally posted the MnMs’ story on Facebook, as I was in the process of updating the site and couldn’t post here. Three kittens had been dumped at Melanie’s remote house, very underweight – but super friendly. I’d gone up to get them, and Jennifer had taken them in. Within days, three more kittens turned […]

Flare & Raze

*** RESERVED *** RAWR have a delicious foxy pair, Flare & Raze, looking for their forever homes. The ginger & white brother and sister are around four months old, neutered and fully vaccinated. They were dumped in a garden of a house where, fortunately, tourists were holidaying. Tourists who cared about animals. They called RAWR […]

Tabby Temptations

This gorgeous tabby guy is around five or six years old. He’s good with dogs and gets on fine with other cats. He loves cuddles and sleeping on the bed, but he’s not too keen on being picked up. He’s a very clever boy and is litter trained. As you can see, he loves his food! And, of course, he’s […]

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 […]

Glengarriff TNR Reccy

Popped up to Glengarriff for RAWR (Rural Animal Welfare Resources) yesterday to do a bit of trapping and check out the caregiver situation. RAWR have neutered most of the cats in the area I was checking out. But a few more need to be done. And they’ve been proving elusive! So here’s some pics – including the three […]

Free HUGs!

I’d a great few hours today, shaking a bucket for HUG (Homes for Unwanted Greyhounds) in Bantry town. Lovely bunch of people, great cause – and fabulous, gentle, friendly greys. Lots of people were interested to meet HUG’s greyhounds, to learn more about the situation for greyhounds in Ireland (not good) and the wonderful work […]

Visiting Cork CAT

I’ve been visiting Cork CAT a few times over the past wee while – and am most grateful for Ann’s hospitality while I’ve had courses in Cork. Last visit I got some fab photos and footage of lil Bhindi Bhaji – a doralicious wee black girl, rescued from a situation where her family was decimated. […]

DAR *PurrOut*

Just a quick *PurrOut* for Drogheda Animal Rescue (DAR), one of the fab TNR organisations that came along to our workshops this weekend. Liza passed on their recent publicity with County Matters Louth – an excellent example of how to promote TNR, rescue and volunteering effectively and inspiringly – AND, as Liza said, ‘… how to look windswept and […]

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 […]
