Do you like to play Bingo? Would you like to play from the comfort of your home? If so, look no further and you will be supporting a good cause too!
For the month of November, we are running an online Bingo on our fundraising Facebook page, The Cat Purrse. All proceeds will go to the neutering of stray and feral cats in North Cork.
To take part, it’s easy. Buy your card(s) online here (€2 per card or €10 for a sheet of 6 cards). We will email you a photo of your card, which you will need to print (or edit from your phone). Follow The Cat Purrse page where every day we will be announcing the drawn numbers from the 14th of February. Don’t worry if you missed one night you can catch up the following day by checking the photo album. We will be playing for a line, 2 lines and a full house. It’s a fun way to help cats!
Here are the prizes you can choose from…

Community Cats Network, in partnership with Midleton Veterinary Hospital, have organised a neutering week. From the 18th to the 22nd of November you can avail of a special rate for the neutering of your cat: €15 for a male and €25 for a female. The offer is limited to two cats per client/household.
The idea behind the scheme is to encourage pet owners to neuter their cat or strays they may be feeding. Cats can become pregnant as young as four months old and up to three times a year. The problem of cat overpopulation is partly caused by unneutered pet cats and, sadly, there are not enough homes for all the kittens being born. Not only neutering is an effective way to control the feline population, but it also significantly improves the health of the cats and helps to reduce the spread of diseases and lethal viruses such as FIV and FeLV.
All cats neutered through this scheme will be eartipped (the tip of the left ear will be slightly cut off while under anaesthetic). This is a standard practice used with feral cats to identify the neutering status of cats without having to bring them to the vet to undergo a 2nd unnecessary surgery. However, owners can decide to have their pet cat microchipped instead, but this cost will be at their own charge. We encourage early neutering and kittens from 10 weeks old can avail of this offer.
If you have a larger number of cats or cannot handle the cats, please contact Community Cats Network. We are a volunteer-run charity carrying out a programme of Trap-Neuter-Return and assist communities to neuter stray and feral cats at a discounted rate all year round.
Availability for the Neutering Week is limited and booking is necessary. Call Midleton Veterinary Hospital on 021 4623672 to reserve.
