Last Tuesday, we received a call about a sick cat in Midleton. She was very thin and dehydrated. We brought her to Sinead at the Cloyne Veterinary Clinic and an examination revealed that she was already neutered and very old. Ads were posted on the internet, posters were placed, leaflets were distributed, and Miss Marple, as I named her because she was an old lady surrounded by so much mystery, took up residence in my study.
Although the caller thought the cat had been dumped, I was convinced someone was looking for her and decided to keep looking….
Well, Miss Marple’s real name is in fact Lucky (very appropriate) and she is 19 years old. She had been missing for a month and her owners thought she had gone away to die, until today, when their son saw one of my posters. Twenty minutes later, the tears were rolling and Lucky was in the arms of her mammy While in our care, Lucky was microchipped, so if she ever goes missing again, she can be quickly reunited with her family.
Moral of the story? Don’t give up looking for your missing cat and never assume too much when you have found a cat. So many cats are not reunited with their owners because people assume they have been dumped…
We are missing our lovely cat Snoes.
She is completely white, was wearing a red collar & bell, and was last seen last Friday night 16th November on Dominick St, Shandon, Cork.
If you have seen her, or have any advice, please ring us.

This female cat has been hanging around Gortnamucky in Carrigtwohill for the past few weeks. She is not microchipped, but is spayed.
She is quite friendly, but looks like she has been fending for herself for a while and shows signs of feline dermatritis.

This black and white male kitten was found in Ballycotton; however he probably travelled in the engine of a car coming from Midleton as he was oily, his ears were burnt down and he had a few wounds.
He is about 9 weeks old, unneutered, not microchipped and is very friendly.

This cat, whom we’ve named MC, was collected in EMC in Ballincollig on the 5th of June. He had been hanging around there for about a week.
MC is an older black and white male cat. He is neutered, but not microchipped. He could have been travelling as he was very dirty, emaciated and dehydrated.
If you think this is your cat, please contact 086 1583501.
Can you help us to look for MC’s owners by printing and distributing this poster please? 12 06 05 Ballincollig
Breda and I went to pick up this cat today. He wandered in a garden in the Ballyfinn area of Cloyne (East Cork) on the 17th of May.
He is about a year or a year and half and is not neutered, nor microchipped. However, he is very friendly (with dogs as well).
His tail is badly damaged, which could be a sign that he travelled in a car’s engine. He is at themoment staying with Sinead, who has named him Crawford because of his beauty spot, at The Cloyne Veterinary Clinic. She will examine him properly tomorrow and do the necessary.
If you know someone who has lost a cat of this description, please contact Em on 0861583501.
