Lexi’s Waiting For You!

Lexi’s waiting for you to hurry up and come adopt her! She’s a most beautimous calico, around one year old, neutered and fully vaccinated. She’s very shy, but once she trusts you she’s a purrnuzzlefest extraordinaire. I’m fostering Lexi for KLAWS Kerry. She came to me from Shannon of Animal Rescue South Kerry on Saturday and I’ve been […]

Cork CAT Cittens

I had a furr-ball when Larry and I visited Cork last week. I stayed with Ann from Cork CAT for two nights and Larry stayed with us for one and at Gilabbey for one (see his story here). And while I was there I got to play with … wait for it, wait for it … KITTENS!!! […]

Lexi’s Coming to Visit

My latest KLAWS foster, Lexi, is coming to Bantry to stay for a while. She’s with Shannon near Portmagee, from Animal Rescue South Kerry, at the moment. But Shannon’s far too full and Lexi needs a change. Lexi’s a gorgeous one-year-old (ish) calico girl – neutered and fully vaccinated. She’s a little shy until she gets to know […]

More All Things Nice …

*** REHOMED *** It’s so difficult to get decent pics of black kittens sometimes – so I made a special effort with Fitz to help him find his forever home with his sister Honey – you may remember the pair, All Things Nice, I’m fostering for Cork CAT. And I got some FAB photos of this lil black babe! Imagine […]

All Things Nice

*** REHOMED *** Great news! Sugar & Spice have found their wonderful forever home together, thanks to RAWR. But Honey and Fitz liked mine so much they decided to stay on for a wee while longer. They would like to find their own forever home soon though, preferably together. You’ll remember I’m fostering the family for a […]

The Dance of the Fly Catcher

Reality shifts as Honey chases a fly. I was watching Seraphim Falls coincidentally – and the music made the ballet complete. Thought I’d share.

Toot Sweet!

*** REHOMED *** Am doing a bit of fostering while Ann, from Cork CAT, goes on her holidays in France. (Can you say ‘Holidays’? I knew you could! *jealous*) Ann got these guys from a colony in the city – and they were extremely discombobulated by the experience of being gathered together for the journey […]

Animal Welfare Conference Update – 16th May

Just writing to update on Simon Coveney’s Animal Welfare Conference, in Dublin Castle on 16th May 2014. Just last week news of it flew round facebook, and rescues and individual animal welfarites were all a bit concerned that we’d heard nothing about it. There was very little to be found on the internet apart from […]
