Scrabble’s Drinking Problem

A little self-indulgence here folks. My apologies. But Scrabble’s determination to drink out of a glass, rather than a cat bowl, has amused me for some time. So I managed to catch a few of her efforts on film for your delectation. Her lil drinking problem comes at the end … hope you enjoy!

Maple Syrup

*** REHOMED *** Friendly but timid, no collar, no tag. A friend of mine, remembering the unknown, unwanted, unhelped stray that was runover on Valentine’s day (story here), picked Maple up and dropped her with Jenni.

G Spot

Gerry’s got a special Spot (what else did you think I meant by G Spot???). Give him a ticklol at the base of his spine and he goes most peculiar. Just thought I’d share 😉 Note: Gerry’s still looking for his forever home!

Happy Endings

A Happy Ending! You  might remember Gasket, an auld girl who joined us back in February, found in a car engine in Dunmanway? We’ve spectacular news – she’s going home! Gasket was microchipped!!!

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 […]

Another AWESOME Lunch

A smaller gathering than usual this month, with four representatives from RAWR, Cork CAT, DAWG and Animal Advocacy attending. We’d a great time as usual, sharing stories and experiences, and putting the world to rights. I totally forgot to take pics during lunch again, but have to share the wonderful Chapel Steps Restaurant & Wine […]

UK Trips Update

I’m finding a trip every 6 weeks a bit much so, unless I can arrange for someone else to do trips, and/or find another rescue in the UK to take in cats, the trips will be roughly every 8 weeks from now on. I’m guessing this means that everyone will have more cats to go, […]

Miss Tipsy Settles In

Miss Tipsy, our latest permanent resident, has been with us just over a week now. She’s got her own separate room until she gets her FeLV booster (I’ve a stray FeLV, Hobo, who sleeps in the house at night) and she’s settling in really well. I let her out with the FeLV-free guys at night […]
