Zingaro

Dumping Kills Dumping kills. And it’s illegal. Whoever just dumped this wee kitten in my back garden – congratulations! Chances are it’ll catch FIE (Feline Infectious Enteritis) and die. I’ve the virus in the house and wee things like this are particularly susceptible. Half the time when you dump a kitten it’ll die anyway – […]

Gerry

Gerry came to me back in February this year from KLAWS Kerry, looking for his forever home. A month later my Joe died and I decided to have Gerry stay with me, rather than rehome him. A ‘guilty pleasure’ puss, as we say (usually I only keep unhomable felines, but I couldn’t resist Gerry). He’d […]

The Beaches

These guys were rescued from a hoarder in the UK. I’m afraid they can’t speak Irish 🙁 But they communicate beautifully and are the softest most beautimous young adults you could ask for, with very unusual caramel colouring.

Thistle

My lil Thistle was run over this morning. He must have been knocked down in the night – and whoever killed him didn’t stop. No-one checked his collar to find his home. Thanks to a neighbour who saw his body by the road and let me know, I can bury him. He was hardly even three […]

Judo Visits Bantry House

Another foster dog, another lovely visit to Bantry House. This time Jennifer came with Judo and myself. And I had to take photos of the desserts for her, as Judo was sitting on her lap and she couldn’t possibly move 😉 So we’d a lovely lunch, followed by Mocha Cheesecake for me and a quick […]

More Judo

I introduced Judo a few days ago but haven’t had time to post many pics. Here are a few to be getting on with. You’ll see how skinny she is 🙁 And how full of beans! :)))) Judo’s a real sweetie, with a few qwirks – she seems to be a female who marks, she […]

Judo’s Sunday Sizzlers

Judo had a fantastic day yesterday. And she wanted everyone to know! She’s been with me only a few days now and I’ll post more photos of her as soon as I’ve time. In the meantime she wanted me to let everyone know how adventurous she’s been. She started the day barking at the cats, […]

Here’s Judo!

Meet Judo! Afraid these aren’t great pics. But they’ll have to do ye till I can get some more. Judo was found wandering in Ballylickey, around the Ouvane Falls. She’s a total sweetie, and has obviously been a pet – complete with pink sparkley collar! But she’d plainly be stray for a while – very, […]

Asparagus Tips

Gus came from Cavan pound to AHAR to me for fostering in Febrary 2012. We don’t know how he got to the pound – stray, abandoned, surrendered or cruelty case. He’s a wee affectionate JRT cross, about 1 year old, neutered (so someone cared about him once), emaciated (not just painfully thin, genuinely emaciated), mange […]

Gibson Says Ohai!

Think it’s about time I introduced you to the latest arrival. Meet Gibson! Gibson was surrendered to ARC (Animal Rescue Cobh) around 23rd April 2012. Sporting a fetching head tilt, a full set of balls and an FIV positive status, ARC were a bit worried about finding a home for this poor boy. And Samantha, evil […]

Joe Bones Brown 2004 – 20/3/12

Joe Bones Brown was euthanased at home on Tuesday 20th March 2012. He’d broken his spine back in November 2010 and seemed to recover well from it, despite nerve damage. But the nerve damage worsened and he started going downhill towards the end of 2011. The vets said the kindest thing was to euthanase him […]

Scrabble Update

Back when Scrabble had her medical nightmare with thrombocytopenia, we tested her for FIV/FeLV – and she tested positive for the former, FIV. Normally I wouldn’t hesitate to rehome a healthy FIV positive cat, as long as the new owners were aware of the disease and willing & able to deal with it. But Scrabble […]

Granny’s Progress

Granny Weatherwax came to me around 12th Sept 2011. She was in a pretty rotten state – skanky, skinny, arthritic, one eye black with a bleed, FIV positive, affectionate as anything. She’s staying. And I thought I’d track her progress. Hoping she’s gonna clean up and have a few years left in her. So far, […]
