OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE
We love all our cats, and when they pass away it is devastating. We never forget that many stray, feral and community cats were unwanted and unloved until the day they were rescued. This page serves as a memorial to the ones we have loved and cared for, sometimes for just a few hours or days after rescue. From the tiniest kitten to the oldest and frailest member of a feral colony, they all deserve to be remembered.
Beautiful Buffy came to us from the same colony as Giles, and was sadly put to sleep after a spay operation released a latent panleukopenia virus. We fought so hard to save her, but it wasn’t to be.
Giles came into foster from a colony in Bunclody. He was poorly for a while, and despite the best efforts of the vet and his foster carer, he had to be put to sleep.
Vixen came into foster with us from a colony in Enniscorthy, along with his sister Dancer. Unfortunately, he began to show signs of Feline Panleukopenia virus, and despite the prompt care of the vet, he passed away.
Tressa (Leia to her foster family) sadly lost her fight for life shortly after arriving at her forever home. She seems to have suffered an infection as a result of a leg injury, which could not be treated in time.
Orion, Phoenix’s brother, sadly passed within hours of Phoenix, also of suspected Feline Panleukopenia Virus. He fought a little longer, but could not overcome.
Dahlia and Dandelion 24/10/2020
Dahlia and Dandelion came to us from a feral colony near Blackwater. Whilst they initially thrived, they began to show symptoms of Feline Panleukopenia virus shortly after arriving in their new home. Despite emergency veterinary care, sadly they passed away within a day of one another.
