Meet Little Baba!

In June 2021 a kind person found a one day old kitten in their backyard, it looks like it had been abandoned by his mum. After waiting for some time confirming the kittens mum wasn’t coming back to get him, they brought the little fella into the vets who handed it over to a foster.

The foster couple has been hand rearing this gorgeous little boy, who was born mid-June. He is full of life, eating healthily and enjoying his human cat parents

When he is old enough he will be available for adoption, so keep an eye out for him on the adoption pages.

In the meantime please consider sponsoring this sweet boy, he has a few vet visits ahead of him to help him grow big and strong and ready for adoption!

Garfield’s Story!

My name is Garfield and I am all of four years old. When I came into the care of Cats Aid I had a severe skin condition which the vet thought may have been as the result of living in a stressful environment. My skin was irritated to the point where it was really uncomfortable. It felt hot and moist which resulted in constant bacterial infections. I would lick my skin to try to ease the irritation making it much worse.

I am happy to report that I am now feeling much better but it has taken two years to get it under control with the help of TLC and medication. Cats Aid pay for all my veterinary needs. My current foster parents are keeping me long term as they have fallen in love with my super personality plus we are afraid that a move may upset my health.

Please consider sponsoring me. The money will go towards my ongoing veterinary bills as I am currently living in a loving foster home.

Bessy’s Story!

Hi there my name is Bessy and I am a six year old female cat with beautiful beige flecks throughout my dark chocolate colored coat. When I came in to the Cats Aid Cattery I didn’t really like the other cats in the cattery so the Cattery Moma decided to give me a whole unit to myself. This was glorious. I could sleep where I wanted, eat when I wanted and play with all my own toys and never have to share them!

As the weeks went by my behavior improved, the nipping and swiping decreased and the Cattery Moma said I was ready to go into one of the experienced foster mammies homes.

So I went into a foster home in mid January 2021 and I am happy to report that I am doing really well.

If you pick me to sponsor this will contribute to some new toys to stimulate me to enhance my social skills when it comes to humans.

Also as I am a mature cat it will go towards Cat’s Aid being able to provide annual health checks, booster vaccinations, worming and flea treatments. Please consider me for sponsorship!

Suri’s Story!

Hi, my name is Suri. I am a five year old black female cat. My little family and I were rescued by Cats’ Aid. My mammy was feral and was very afraid of humans so she was spayed and returned to the ladies garden. There she would have shelter and food and her needs would be cared for.

My sister and I were taken into foster care where my sister became very friendly with the foster mammy but I was still very afraid and never really came around to trusting humans.

What the Cattery Moma says……..

Suri loves her pals in the cattery and loves her Royal Canin food. She also loves Callie’s recovery soft food. She has a lovely nature and she is just a bit worried around humans but that’s ok as we will keep working on her so that some day she is ready to go to her forever home“

Please consider Suri for sponsorship.

Donald’s Story!

Hi there, my name is Donald and I am the latest cat to join the Cats Aid Cattery. I got my name after being found and rescued by Cats Aid outside a McDonalds restaurant in December 2020. The weather was really awful at the time and I was living rough in a carpark. As there were lots of cars around me I was delighted to be rescued and I am safe and warm ever since.

Cats Aid brought me straight to their vet who checked me over and booked me in to be neutered. They gave me a clean bill of health thankfully. Soon I will be fully vaccinated and wormed again in order to make sure I stay healthy so I can secure a suitable foster home.

It’s early days still but I am not too sure about humans yet. I am quite scared at the moment. On the bright side I am making friends with the other cats who I share the cattery with. I am not too sure about my carer mammy yet either but she does give me good food and has the heat on 24/7 for which I am very grateful for. I also feel blessed and full of hope that my days of living rough are all behind me.

Eventually I would love an indoor/outdoor home with an owner who will look after me and understand that I need to learn to trust all over again.

Also as I am a mature cat if you choose to sponsor me, this money will go towards Cat’s Aid being able to provide me with annual health checks, booster vaccinations, worming and flea treatments.

Oisin’s Story!

Hi my name is Oisin,

I am aged 13 and I was taken in with all of my pals from one of the elderly fosterers after she became ill. I am very shy and I am wary of people. My favourite place is my cat tower where I snuggle up and keep warm and safe.

I have a few respiratory problems and have itchy skin so my cattery foster Moma has to bring me to the vet regularly for steroid injections which do the trick!

I love my gastro-intestinal food and of course my freshly cooked chicken which I get daily!

If you sponsor me this will help cover my ongoing veterinary needs and maybe contribute towards a new cat tower as the current one could do with a re-modeling!

Lots of love.

Callie’s Story!

Hi there, my name is Callie and I am aged 15 years old. I was taken in with all my pals from one of the elderly fosterer’s home after she became ill. I am quite shy and I very wary of humans but I love snuggling in my big comfy bed on top of an open crate.

I have a respiratory problem which causes me a bit of bother every two months. So I get very congested and sneeze a lot. I go to the vets when this happens to get antibiotics and steroids. Within a day this eases my nasal congestion for two months, then I have to go back to the vets. This can be a bit stressful, however the vets make it as easy as they can for me.

I love my recovery moose food and my dried gastrointestinal kibble as I had dental and mouth issues in the past so I had to get all of my teeth removed.

After all that I still have a new admirer who recently joined the cattery, his name is Donald and we snuggle up together. He seems to have taken a shine to me, watch this space!

Sponsoring me will help Cats Aid cover my ongoing veterinary needs and maybe contribute towards a new snug bed which may accommodate myself and Donald!

Lots of love

Justin’s Story!

Hi there, my name is Justin and I am an all black male adult with a gorgeous coat. I was rescued by Cats Aid in January of 2017 as a tiny  kitten so I am almost 4.My sister Penny also lives in the cattery with me. I am shy with humans but I am very soft and would never swipe or bite so I tend to run away if someone comes to pet me. In the cattery I get along fine with all the cats but my new pal is Donald.

Donald and I are slowly being introduced through the mesh internal cattery door where we can see each other and I can rub my body up and down flirting with Donald and hoping to grab his attention. So far so good – Donald sits there and looks over at me, so I am hoping over time that we will become the best of mates.

My cattery Moma feels that I am ready to go into foster as soon as an experienced foster becomes available. This will help me to gain more confidence and hopefully result in securing me a permanent loving home.

Sponsoring me will greatly contribute towards some new toys and a nice new cat tree to climb on.

Lots of love from Justin xx

Bernie’s Story!

Bernie’s Story

Hi, I am Bernie. I am a very good looking seven-year-old tabby and white cat. I was found in Dublin City Centre with a litter of four lovely kittens in a very unsafe situation.

When Cats Aid got the call about us they arranged to have us all rescued and taken in to their care. My kittens all found loving homes, but as I was very frightened I have been staying in the Cats Aid cattery ever since.

Cats Aid is looking after me really well, but sometimes I need to see the vet for general health care. My carers say that I have a lovely personality, but I am still afraid around humans. My best friend in the cattery is Hugo and we love cuddling together. Here at Cats Aid they all love me very much.

Please consider me for sponsorship!

Lots of love from Bernie xx

Kyle’s Story!

Hi, I am Kyle, a handsome black and white cat with beautiful golden eyes. When I was just seven months old, I was spotted with an injured tail and Cats Aid rescued me from living rough on the streets. I needed an emergency operation to have my tail removed and now I have a short stumpy tail which wags when I walk and looks very cute.

I also had a bad lice infestation, but after six months of treatment my fur became clean and shiny again. I am now living in the Cats Aid cattery, where I have good food, clean bedding and lots of cat friends. I am still wary of humans because of my early experiences, but Cats Aid still love me dearly.

If you sponsor Kyle this will help with his veterinary care and make sure he never has to be lonely, sick or frightened again.
