Please help us to keep going

Cats Friends Rescue has been running for 5 years with the help of some amazing volunteers. The rescue is now at crisis point. We need serious funding to remain open and to continue the work we do. We work with over 16 colonies and have many wonderful cats in Foster that need medical care, food and litter etc. We believe “every Moggie Matters” and have strived over the years to save as many cats lives as possible. To Date we have homed so many cats and trapped neutered and returned a huge amount of ferals.

Right now we have vet bills which we urgently need to pay so we can keep going. We have no funding at the moment. We can only continue our work and keep saving cats lives in Dublin with donations. We understand money is tight for everyone. But we can not allow cats to keep suffering and that is why we wish to stay open with your help. Please consider a donation not matter how small. We appreciate every penny. The Cats will be very grateful for your help too.

Cat home needed

He seems to function as well as an outdoor cat as he did an indoor one. Generally, he’s very playful trying to catch my hand when I pet him. Quite affectionate. . Quite comfortable being held. Fairly shy of other cats from what I’ve seen. Good with people, although he can be slightly shy at first, but that passes very quickly

My phone number is 0868461057.

Lucky

Hi All!!!My name is Lucky. A year ago I was wondering around with very little food, really sick and underweight. I noticed this big ginger cat and he was really happy looking. So me being the clever Cat I was I decided to follow him home. Well epic decision on my part as the ginger cat whose name is Milo belonged to a volunteer for Cats Friends Rescue called Lisa. She gave me some food and another mad girl gave me a tablet for worms and we went to the vets.The vet gave me an operation and I didn’t want wander off anymore. But he also did some tests and it turned out I was sick with something called FELV and FIV. So I became a long term foster for Cats Friends Rescue.I am soooo Lucky!!! I get chicken every night. I get yummy food and have so much to play with. I am totally indoors now as the vet said it’s too keep me and other cats safe as I like to scrap sometimes. It’s a boy thing. I have put on so much weight now and it’s still going on. But the Vet says is fine because I am not well and do not have the same long life that other cats can have. So he says once I am happy for what time I have that’s what matters. I love food sooooooooooo much. I am really spoilt by my lovely foster mom. I have such a great family.The thing is though I have to take a lot of medication as my teeth hurt sometimes and I can’t breathe very well. So the girls said I should tell my story. Maybe some people would like to help me out with my care as I will be here in the rescue as long as I am able to live happily. It won’t be very long but I am so thrilled to have followed Milo home. I got the best foster home ever. I love outdoor royal Canin food and Chicken. I love to play with ribbons. If you would like to help me you can donate to

cfrlucky@gmail.com through paypal. Or you can donate directly to Cats Friend Rescue. You can buy my food or litter. Cats stuff is always good.  Thanks again.  Click on this Button to donate directly to Lucky.


What should I do if I come across a stray cat??

We would like to offer some advice regarding stray cats.

If you do come across a stray cat. Think twice before you think it needs to be removed or rescued. There is no point in taking away a feral or semi feral or friendly stray cat from a location and contacting a rescue to help afterwards. Mind you it would be no easy task removing a feral cat.

Check first the cat is ear tipped. Also check is the cat healthy looking and not skin and bone. Feral cats can be underweight. Is the cat visibly stressed or disorientated? If not than maybe return the next day to see if the cat is still around. Leave some food for the cat in a discreet location as not to upset people in the neighbourhood. Call rescues based in the location and ask them are they managing a colony in the area with a description of the cat. Take a photo of the cat and post on facebook pages related to cats. Asking about the cat. This is helpful to do first before you decide to remove the cat.

Contact a rescue for advice before you do anything like removing a cat. There is no where for these cats to go. And if they are being managed in a colony or have a caretaker you are going to make things much worse for these cats. Taking these steps first is much more helpful to the Cat.

Having said that if the cat is injured and needs help and you want to help them the first port of call is to bring the cat to a vet. If you come a across a small kitten also that is different. But check for mammy around too. She may just have gone off for food. But do always think first before jumping in. We know people are coming from a very good place in wanting to help cats. But removing a cat or kitten and hoping when you get home that a rescue will take it is a huge risk to take as rescues are full and the cats life just became a whole lot more stressful being relocated. Its not rescuing a cat if you take it away with the idea a rescue will take it. If a rescue can not take them what than? Just some food for thought. Feral cats have no where to go so lets try and manage them where they are. Do what we can for them where they are. Do not take a cat home unless you are willing to foster it. eric

Advertising on our site

We offer a certain amount of advertising on our site to pet shops, Catteries or any other cat related business. Please contact info@catsfriendsrescue.com for more info.

It is the policy of Cats Friends Rescue that once you are home approved for the Cat or kitten you wish to adopt, the adoption fee must then be paid. We will not hang on to cats or kittens unless the fee has been paid. The reason for this is we have reserved cats for people for a couple of weeks and then they have changed their mind which has meant our lovely Cats have missed out on other homes.

The adoption fees range from €70 to €90.

Please Note Adoption fees are non-refundable, as they go immediately towards vet bills, food bills, and neutering for needy cats and kittens who’s lives we are trying to save.

Microchip your cat today!!

We really want to encourage people to microchip their cats. If your cat goes missing and you don’t find them and she ends up in a rescue she will be returned to you if you have micro chipped her.

Or if someone finds your cat and starts looking after them and brings it to the vet your cat can be returned to you. As the vet will scan the cat. Your details will be on the chip.

If you don’t microchip and your cat ends up with us and is rehomed. There is not comeback. You have no proof it’s your cat. So many cats are the same colour, age etc. The best proof is microchip and registered with your vet. You must register as well as microchip. We get so many cats micro chipped and not registered. What’s the point? Paying for the chipping but don’t log on to register it with Fido. Be smart about your cat. If you dont know how to register ask for help. Your vet will tell you or we are happy to guide you.

If your cat is rehomed by a rescue and you don’t bother to microchip, there is no way to get them back. In rare cases yes but most of the time no!!

So if you LOVE your Cat and want them to get back to you no matter what or how long, microchip her or him today. Micro chipping is loving your cat and being responsible. It is down to basically do you love your cat enough to want them back if they go missing. It is as important as neutering or spaying your cat if they go outdoors.

Fostering for Cats Friends Rescue

“I can’t foster I would get too attached and it would be too hard to let them go.”

The above statement is something we hear a lot. This is something that I understand and have experienced too. It is not easy to form a bond and let go. I know there are many amazing potential fosters out there who would love to take on a cat, but hold back due to this worry. We are desperate for fostering so I ask you to consider the following when you decide fostering is too hard.

Please note the kittens in this photo have all found homes.
