Our Christmas cards and calendars 2019 are out now!

We are very proud of our 2019 calendar, which features the photos and stories of some of the cats we have trapped during the year.  It costs €7 and would make an ideal stocking filler or gift to send abroad.

  • Perseverance rewarded in Cloyne
  • The heart of a town (Mitchelstown)
  • Visiting some old friends (Midleton)
  • Last but not least (Clogheen)

  • Let’s not forget the smallies (Glanmire)

  • Gaining the trust (Carrigtwohill)
  • A young and exemplary carer in Cork City
  • as well as a photo of a big tom cat from Killeagh for our 13th month!
