Thank you so much to all the supporters and vet nurses for joining us for the Mini-Marathon last Sunday to raise funds for the cats: Cathy, Angela, Rosie, Susan, Abi, Suzanne, Karolina, Aggie, the Midleton Veterinary Hospital team, the Cloyne Veterinary Clinic team and the other members of the IVNA (Irish Veterinary Nursing Association). Well done to all!
The Midleton Veterinary Hospital team
We had a great day and the sun was shining. We are so grateful for the support we have received and to everyone who sponsored the participants. We don’t have a final figure yet, but know that your support will mean that more cats can be helped.
The cat trappers on the run!
It is not too late to sponsor our own cat trappers and you can do so here.

We are delighted to have been chosen as one of the charities for the community fund in Tesco in Clonmel.
We have been operating our Trap-Neuter-Return scheme in the South Tipp area for nearly two years now thanks to the dedication of one volunteer. In 2017 only, near to 100 cats were helped in the area. However, we have found it very difficult to raise enough funds to support the overwhelming number of cats we have been made aware of and not many carers seem to be in a position to cover for the cost of neutering or willing to organise fundraisers. As a result, we have had to turn down some of the enquiries we have received.
Being one of the recipients of the Tesco community fund is a fantastic opportunity to raise some vital funds so that we can continue to help out cats (and their people) in the area. Please, consider popping to Tesco in Clonmel to support the cause by putting your blue tokens in the CCN urn. You can also get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We recently put up an appeal to raise funds to help with TNR in the rural Mallow area. However, we have been struggling with raising funds while the enquiries have kept coming in. Thankfully, Anna from AnyLittleThings has once more come to the rescue and is holding an auction this weekend to help to raise funds so that we can help more people to neuter feral cats in that area.
Because very little neutering has been done in that area, colonies are quite large, sometimes reaching 20 cats (if not more) at this time of the year and carers simply cannot afford the full cost involved in neutering all these cats. Hopefully, by putting all our efforts together we will manage to raise enough to help more cats.
Please, take the time to check the auction at AnyLittleThings. It will kick off at 8pm today and end at 8pm on Tuesday. There will be some lovely pieces, so please bid at your heart’s content and help us to help them!
You can see photos from one of the project we recently carried out in the area (along with another 12 cats TNRed that week) here, and we are due to go back at the end of the month to carry out to more large TNR project.
This month at The Cat Purrse, we are having an auction to raise funds for TNR in East Cork. We have helped with some very large colonies already this year and no doubt there are more to come…
The auction will close on the 16th of April and more items will be added every day until then. There are many jewellery pieces, as well as crafts and art, but also toiletry sets, bags, toys, etc, so check it out and share with your friends!
The Evening Echo Women’s Mini-Marathon 2017 will take place in Cork on the 24th of September at 1pm. It is a fun event that helps to raise money for many charities. You can walk, jog or run the 4 miles. Although it is a women’s mini-marathon, men are also welcome to take part as long as they are dressed as women!
We will all meet at 12.15pm for a group photo!

You can also raise funds online by creating your own fundraising page. It is a handy way to raise funds as you can easily share your page via email, Facebook and other social media. We are registered with iDonate (create your fundraising event here; visit Community Cats Network’s page here).
