My name is Garfield and I’m all of 4 years old. When I came into the 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 very uncomfortable, it was hot and moist which resulted in bacterial infections. I would lick my skin constantly to try to ease the irritation which obviously made it much worse. Now I am much better but it has taken two years to get it under control with the help of medication.
Cats Aid pay for all my veterinary needs, my current foster Mam is keeping me long term as she has fallen in love with my super personality plus we are afraid that a move may exacerbate my condition.
If you would like to sponsor me the money would go towards my veterinary bills as I am currently living in a loving foster home.
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!
Hi I am Zac and I am a male adult tabby and white cat who is now aged 17.
About two years ago my elderly foster mammy became ill and myself and all my pals had to be removed from the house into foster homes or the Cats Aid Cattery depending on our personality and needs.
I am a super friendly guy who loves nothing more than receiving head scratches plus snoozing in my comfy bed where I can keep a close eye on my foster family and their resident cats. I do, however, have a dicky stomach which requires special sensitivity food, a bit of arthritis plus a recent vet check showed early signs of kidney disease.
I had some other health issues over the past year which has earned me frequent flier status at our local vets, so we all agreed it would be best if my foster family look after me long-term. Cats Aid are covering all my medical bills and my foster family kindly covers my expensive food (and I LOVE my grub).
If you are able to help out with sponsorship, it would be much appreciated as it will help make Zac’s retirement a comfortable one plus it will ensure that his medical needs are covered.
Hi, my name is Suri. I am a five year old black female cat. My 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 we will keep working on her so that some day she is ready to go to her forever home“
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. There were lots of cars around me so 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.

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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
