Trap Neuter Return (TNR) is the humane, effective, long-term solution to the feline overpopulation problem. Here you’ll find tales from our TNR exploits and from our Talking TNR information sessions and workshops around the country.
In the cold weather that’s coming, we want to be sure our community cats are as safe, dry and warm as they can be. When cats don’t want human company, we can’t take them indoors, so we have to provide shelters. Here’s an easy DIY shelter made from styrofoam boxes, packing & duct tape and […] Continue reading
Love when my feral cat shelters get visitors. Was hoping Larry might drop by, but no sign of him. Instead this wee one is keeping warm and dry. It’s easy to pop a feral cat shelter in your back garden. All sorts of things can be used. This one of mine is an old record […] Continue reading

Two years ago, with Feral Cats Ireland, we produced Ireland’s TNR manual. It’s still here and still available to anyone who would like a copy. There wasn’t enough funding for the workshops to continue – but hopefully, in the future, money and time will accumulate to make it all possible again. Continue reading

Found a lovely little feral cat shelter & feeding station on Items for Sale or Free in Bantry (a great FB resource in my area). It needs a bit of weather proofing (primarily a more overhanging roof), but works lovely in the rare sunshine – got some snaps of my guys checking it out when it was installed.
In the cold weather it’s especially important to provide community cats with warm shelters and safe, dry feeding stations. Continue reading
We're delighted to announce the launch of our new-look Animal Advocacy website. It's specifically designed to make the TNR Manual’s online pages easier to navigate. However … it may take some time to get the whole site inline with the new look. Please bear with us! You’ll notice we’ve got the basics done and dusted – the […] Continue reading
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 […] Continue reading
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 […] Continue reading
