Sponsor Donald!

Hi there, my name is Donald and I am a male adult cat who was rescued by Cats Aid in December 2020. I was found hungry and depending on humans to feed me. The weather was really awful so I was delighted to be rescued and am safe and warm ever since.

I am not to sure about humans yet. Bit scared at the moment, it is early days yet. I am making friends with the other cats who I share the cattery with. I am not too sure about my carer mammy yet but she does give me good food.

Hugo’s Story

Hi my name is Hugo. I am a 8 year old black male cat. I was rescued by Cats’ Aid when they received a call from a kind lady reporting that I was badly injured in her back garden. When the Cats’ Aid rescuer came they discovered I had a severely injured back leg. The bone was exposed and was in urgent need of veterinary help. I was rushed to the vets but unfortunately they could not save the leg and it needed to be amputated. I was very frightened as you can imagine as it was a very traumatic experience for me, it was such a huge operation.

Last year I developed bladder stones and now have been put on a special diet of urinary food. I do not like the food because I prefer my pals food and try sneak a nibble. But my cattery foster mammy waits patiently till I eat it as it will help stop the stones reoccurring and causing me pain in the future.

I am now with Cats’ Aid for 3 years and the cattery is my home. I have a safe place to rest and have some great cat friends. My best friend is Bernie as she snuggles with me and gives me loads of head butts and kisses. I now like getting brushed and petted and I am nearly ready to try a foster home to get me ready for maybe a chance to get my own forever home.

By offering to sponsor me you will greatly contribute positively towards my life in the Cats Aid cattery in terms of food, medications, litter and worming. It will also mean that my Cattery Mam can buy me things to enrich my life such as toys, new litter trays, scratching posts and new bedding so please consider me for sponsorship today. The lovely people at Cats Aid can also provide you with a sponsorship certificate which might make a nice gift for a loved one.

Sponsor Abbey!

Hi there, my name is Abbey and I am a female adult cat who was rescued by Cats Aid in May 2015 when I was 4 months of age.

I have no tail (don’t know why) and I was living rough in Dublin area and she was being chased by dogs so she was rescued asap from a bad situation. She is v shy.

Took a bit of a turn last year – like a stroke – with TLC and veterinary care she is doing better now so we are working on her in the Cats Aid Cattery currently.

From the Editor

2020 has been an extraordinary year for all of us, including Cats’ Aid.
We would like to reassure our supporters that our work of Intake, Rehoming, TNR and general help has continued throughout the year. TNR involved rescuing from many difficult situations, including an attic with a cat trapped behind a wall.

The cats didn’t observe Social Distancing and the kittens kept arriving! During the year to the end of Oct. we took in 54 cats, including pregnant moms, and we rehomed 79.  

We have had to follow advice about contact with people and we have carried out ‘virtual’ home checks via Whatsapp. This has proved to be quite time-consuming, and we thank people for their patience. 
We haven’t been able to hold Sales or fund-raising events this year, so our income has dropped. Of course we understand that many people are on reduced incomes at present and may not be able to continue their support. We really appreciate whatever support you can give and we assure everybody that our administration expenses are kept to an absolute minimum and that any money received goes directly to benefit the many cats in our care (58 at the end of Oct., including long-term.) 

Fab Kittens Now Available!

Cats Aid are delighted to announce that they have an assortment of beautiful friendly kittens ready to go to new homes.

They are aged approximately 9 weeks old and are super friendly.

If you are interested please get in touch with Cats Aid today.

We will endeavour to do home checks using What’s App.

**IMPORTANT NEWS – Homing Has been Suspended**


In response to the government’s announcement about measures we should all be taking to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus, we are suspending home visits and homing until further notice, also lending traps for TNR. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We are still here, working away to help homeless, stray and feral cats and kittens. We can offer advice; we can post notices about lost and found cats and possibly help with emergencies.  We look forward to resuming our full services soon.

We feel it is very important to stress that there is currently NO evidence that cats can contract the virus. The World Health Organization (WHO) currently advises that there is no evidence to suggest that dogs or cats can be infected with the new Coronavirus. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seconds that opinion, stating, “At this time, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19.”
