Pamela finds retirement home

Pamela our beautiful older cat has found her purrfect retirement home.Pamela was in bad shape when we rescued her. She was starving and a veterinary examination revealed she had been shot at with a pellet gun. Surgery has successfully removed most of the shrapnel. With the support of wonderful veterinary care at City Vets and fantastic foster parents, Pamela made a good recovery. In spite of all she has been through she has a very sweet nature and must have been somebody’s pet at some stage. Pamela found her new home with Fran on Christmas Week 2021 – it was the best present we could have got to see this lovely older lady find a home to call her own. We thank new owner Fran for all her kindness and a big thank-you also to Francis and his mother – Pamela’s long time foster parents.

Saoirse

Saoirse, a partially sighted deaf lurcher, came to us from a very poor situation. Her living conditions were inadequate and her quality of life very poor. The bad old days are over for this beautiful girl, she has found a wonderful new home and we were delighted to get an update with pictures and videos of Saoirse now known as Pickles, living it up with her new buddy, Oski. Here’s what her new Mammy had to say…”Oski absolutely adores her (Saoirse). We knew he was an extremely friendly, peace loving chap, but he made us even more proud by showing everyone he is a true gent. He shares his treats and toys with Pickles (Saoirse) and never complain, even when she pinches them from under his nose! Both fur babies are truly fond of each other and we couldn’t be happier. “……and WE couldn’t be happier either! An update like this is like a ray of hope on a dark winter’s evening. It gives us hope for the neglected, unwanted and abused animals that sadly we meet as part of our work Thank-you to Saoirse aka Pickle’s wonderful new family.PS I can’t stop smiling!!!!😃😃😃

Cat in road traffic accident

https://www.facebook.com/waterfordspca/posts/2764484593818152

Sad news…Our welfare officer attended a call this morning in Tramore. A black and white neutered male cat had been hit by a car and sadly had passed away at the scene of the accident. The accident happened at T.Farrell Suzuki Garage directly across from Tramore Service Station. He is more than likely a pet cat as his ear was not clipped. The deceased cat is now at City Vets and they will hold him in the freezer for a few days to give the owners a chance to recover his body. The cat was not microchipped. We are posting pictures of the deceased cat in the hopes that we reach the poor cat’s owners. For further information please call the office at 051-841432 or City Vets at 051-371155. Thank-you to Tommy Farrell’s Garage for alerting us. RIP Poor cat. Please share to help is reach the owners

Happy Hallowe’en Tail

Meet Rufus – the luckiest kitten in Waterford! Rufus was trapped on Hallowe’en evening after 48 hours of cajoling him out of the thicket in which he was sheltering . Too young to be separated from his mother he would not have survived for very long more.Thanks to his new Human Daddy we managed to get him safely indoors before the worst of the storm. Rufus has now been adopted by the people who called Waterford SPCA and we wish him and his wonderful kind new family a happy ever after.
