Cashew & Almond

*** RESERVED *** Cashew and Almond were both found abandoned around the same time, trying and failing to fend for themselves. Almond, a playful and affectionate tabby & white boy, was found wandering in Coomhola. Cashew, a doralicious wee ginger girl, was found in the middle of nowhere, either dumped or fallen out a car […]

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 […]

RAWR Job Seekers

Skilled in mousing, lurking in the shadows and with no interest in indoor living, these felines are raring to go and waiting for your call. Also fly control experts; not afraid of spiders. They are neutered and fully vaccinated. All they require […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

Sealed With A Loving Kiss – it’s never too late to give a lil love! I had the honour of participating in a seal pup rescue this evening, my first up close with a seal – what a gorgeous animal! Here’s what happened … I just happened to be in the vets when Jen got a […]

Big thanks to RAWR!

The guys asked me to post a Thank You! to RAWR tonight after stuffing themselves silly with the donation they gave us. RAWR have food boxes in supermarkets locally for donations for their TNR and foster felines – and people can drop food into the RAWR shop in Bantry too. Sometimes they have an overflow […]
