Cats and Kittens for adoption

Before enquiring, please, read our adoption procedure here.

Malibu

When he was four weeks old, Malibu was found on the street under the pouring rain, being pecked at by crows. Apart from an abscess that was easily treated, Malibu was fine and has grown into a strong and healthy kitten, full of energy.

Malibu is now ready to go to a new home. He is full of energy and needs a lot of entertainment. For this reason, it would be ideal if he could find a home with other cats/kittens or with children to play with him (preferably older kids as he can play a bit rough if you’re not careful). He has been briefly introduced to dogs and is very intrigued by them; however, you would need to be extremely cautious during the introductory period. He is looking for an indoor home (with or without access to outside when he is older) where he can be part of the family.

He is about 12 weeks old and has been neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, treated for parasites.

Kittens are full of energy and demand a lot of attention; adopting two is often recommended, especially if you have a busy lifestyle, as they will keep each other company, play together and it makes your life much easier. Read  why adopting two kittens is better than one. Malibu and Caspian (below) would be suitable to adopt as a pair.

Caspian 

Caspian is the last of the Youghal Water Babies to be looking for a home. He was found with his siblings in a vacant house by some workers who took them away when they were 4 weeks old and has since been in our care.

He is super friendly, ok with dogs, children and other cats. He would suit an indoor home (with or without access to outside when he is bigger).

He is about 16 weeks old, neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

You can see more photos of him here.

Major Tom **Reserved**

This is Major Tom, aka, Bitey Bitey. Tom is the proud owner of three legs. Once upon a time he had four but a serious injury rendered him into a tripod. Tom lived with us following his operation. He arrived at the same time that building work began in our backyard so Tom was shafted into our new, completely unprepared, shed. This was not a happy home for Tom because his shed became a zoo. All our own cats, the ferals, and the visiting farm cats, all trooped past Tom’s shed and stopped to stare in at the three legged wonder. This frightened Tom and made him very aggressive. If Tom escaped his shed at feeding time he made a beeline for the first cat he saw and savaged it. This state of affairs continued for quite a while and we began to think it might be curtains for Tom Bitey Bitey.
At this juncture the wonderful Colette stepped up to the plate for us and agreed to take Tom on. We drove Tom over to her house, carried him up to her room, and opened the cage. We fully expected Tom to bolt from his cage and shred every living thing in sight. Instead, Tom wandered out of his cage and immediately climbed onto Colette’s bed whereupon he lay down, stretched out fully, and looked at Colette for tiffin. Colette has cats and dogs of her own. She runs a well managed house with the help of senior pet, Roxy, who mothers all waifs and strays. Over the past few weeks Colette has worked a miracle on Major Tom. He has calmed down and is beginning to learn that not everything is going to get him or hurt him. Tom is learning to live with other animals. He is an extremely loving cat towards humans and likes sleeping and eating….a lot. Colette has worked wonders with Tom and is, quite unselfishly, preparing Tom for a home of his own. Major Tom would love his own home, with his own people. As a single pet in a human home Tom would be in his element. Tom has a lot of love to give to the RIGHT person who would be willing to love Tom on his terms.
Tom was abandoned twice. First by those who cared for him and then by the git who dumped Tom on us. It has taken Colette and her very special brand of love to begin to thaw Tom out. Please consider giving Major Tom a home of his very own.

Major Tom is neutered and microchipped. To enquire, please contact 086 4676111.

Aurora

Aurora came to our care from a hoarding situation. For the past 5 years, she had been living with too many other cats in just the one room and got very little human interaction.

It took a lot of time and patience to build up a relationship with Aurora, but she is now trusting and will come to her fosterer for cuddles and treats. She was also suffering from gingivitis, which was not helping her, but has now been treated for it.

She needs an indoor-only home as she is not used to going outside where she is the only pet and receives all the attention. A quiet home without young children would be preferable; however, we believe that a mature kid or teenager would probably get on really well with this lovely and shy cat who just wants to be loved. She will probably be hiding at the beginning, being a in a new environment, but her trust will gradually build up and you will be well rewarded for your patience.

Aurora is 10 years old, spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She has tested negative to both FIV and FeLV and is up-to-date with parasite treatment.

Dawn

Dawn came to our care from a hoarding situation. Since her birth, 5 years ago, she had been living with too many other cats in just the one room and got very little human interaction. When she came to us, Dawn was also suffering from severe gingivitis, which resulted in the vet undertaking a full mouth extraction. She must have been in a lot of pain as she is a different cat since her operation.
It took a lot of time and patience to build up a relationship with Dawn, but she is now trusting and will come to her fosterer for cuddles and rubs.

Cee Dee aka Lickle Ickle

Lickle Ickle was rescued with her siblings just before Christmas. Her siblings found new homes immediately, but Ickle had to remain in foster care as she was very underweight for her age. Although she has remained small, Ickle is in great health and is now ready to find her forever home.

Ickle is looking for an indoor home with access to outside. She is very friendly and loves playing. She gets on well with other cats and would be fine with older children.

Lickle Ickle is about 9 months old, spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She has tested negative to both FIV and FeLV and is up-to-date with parasite treatment.

  1. Are belle and Tony stil looking for homes?? I’m in West cork in a lovely house and we’re looking to expand our family
