Kitten found near Murphy’s Terrace

A black & white, tame, male kitten was found last weekend crying in a hedge near Murphy’s Terrace just outside Millstreet. Above are two photo’s of the kitten. He is very friendly and seems to have just strayed away from home, so the woman who found him would love to rehome him again a.s.a.p. If that doesn’t happen, she’s isn’t able to keep him (though she would love to), and will look for a new home for him. He has received all vaccinations & is now ready for his new home. Contact Roisin at 086-1553640 / <email>

update 15th Sept: Thankfully, the kitten has found a new home 🙂

Help find Higgins

Family pet ‘Higgins’ went missing this morning from his home in Drishanebeg, and he hasn’t been seen since. The neighbours have been checked but no luck finding him yet 🙁

To make matters worse he’s only being minded for the week and his owners are on their way home from the States tomorrow morning (Saturday).

He’s important to them and our hope is that we will locate him before midday tomorrow (Saturday).

He’s a little older and greyer than in the photo (left).

If you can help please contact Pam at ( 086)1721142 / <email>
