Welcome to the Cork Cat Action Trust Website
Find us on FACEBOOK under CORK CAT ACTION TRUST.
We are a small volunteer run local charity with the main aim of reducing the numbers of unwanted cats and kittens by the tried and tested method of trap/neuter/return. Cats are trapped humanely, taken to the vet, neutered, and after a period of recuperation released back into their home territory.
Colonies of cats whether in back gardens, farms, building sites, or industrial areas, can breed so rapidly that even rabbits blink. Our aim is to stop this proliferation of unwanted kittens who live short and miserable lives and whose mothers breed and breed until they are worn out and wretched.
A pair of breeding cats can, in their lifetimes, produce 20,000 offspring.
In a radio interview after the 2014 Dublin International Cat Show, a spokesman said “there are about 150,000 cats in Ireland – Irish people prefer dogs, and can even bring in large dogs from the country” or words to that effect. In fact, although he may have been talking about PEDIGREE or SHOW cats, if he multiplied the 150,000 by 10, he would still have been short of the mark as regards the cat population. Cats HIDE. There can be 50 cats in your area, and you may only see 8/9.. Cats breed at a phenomenal rate. If you feed a feral or stray cat, please contact your local TNR group to help. Otherwise there may be 6/8 kittens shortly, and in 5 months you can multiply that by another 4/5.
If you feed that cat, PLEASE NEUTER IT.
Thank you very much.

Squeek having had pins inserted into her back leg is doing very well. She has had her cage rest and is now making up for it.
Hopefully the cold weather will help reduce the number of kittens being born in 2018. Winter 2017 was a warmer period and many kittens were born early in the year.
COMMUNITY CATS NETWORK HAVE ISSUED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT.
We feel it necessary to issue a precautionary notice of cats going missing around the Ballinspittle-Kilbrittain area. These cats are all black. They all lived within a few miles of one another. They all went missing within a 24 hour period between Tues 10/10/17 and Wed 11/10/17.
We have contacted the Gardai in Bandon and Kinsale, as well as local Gardai, to inform them of our suspicions.
As a matter of some urgency we would appeal to anyone who may have noticed anything out of the usual around the areas mentioned to contact us, in confidence, through private message to this page or by ringing, 086 4676111. All contacts will be held in the strictest confidence.
As a general warning we would urge all cat owners to be extra vigilant around this time of year. Halloween can be a fun time but it also brings out some pretty asinine behaviour that involves direct cruelty to animals, especially cats.
CCN is now working with Community Gardai to bring this matter to a speedy resolution.
We would ask our followers to share this as far and as wide as they possibly can.
Princess and Ricky and George.
Its a crazy time of year. 19 kittens, 18 of them under 9 weeks. Black, Black Black, and a couple of Black and Whites (and 4 tinies, not yet 4 weeks old). Beautiful little characters. DYING for some fun with their own families. Will all be vaccinated in the next week or so, and then will be ready to go. Some long haired, some short haired.
I think the big black cat is saying “you can come out and play too, when you’re bigger”.
Curly Sue the large tabby cat has three kittens. One is dark silver with black stripes. The second is white socks with tabby body and the third is a fluffy long haied black. All are boys.
