The Curious Cow

The Curious Cow

One of the cows in a field on the grounds of Blarney Castle, Co Cork, Ireland. I’m not entirely happy with the cow in the background on the right but, meh. I love the texture of the cow’s hair on it’s face.

North Cork Kittens

North Cork Kittens

Budget 14 is started shortly but I doubt these kittens are interested. While visiting friends near Fermoy we went for a walk and came across 5 beautiful kittens wandering down the road. My wife scooped up one of them and a local resident stopped to take the kitten. Eventually, there were three cars parked along a narrow country road and 6 people gathered to try and house the kittens.

Luckily our friends had cat food which helped to lure the kittens but we could only grab three of them. The other two (including the black kitten in the photo above) weren’t as friendly. The three that were rescued are safe now but two of them are in need of a permanent home. Anyone want a really cute kitten?

Mylo

Mylo, a yorkie that was taken from the CSPCA Animal’s Home in Mahon, Cork. He’s looking a lot healthier than he was when he was adopted and left the care of the CSPCA. I was lucky to get this shot as he’s such an excitable dog he was jumping up and down, wagging his tail and a delight for all of us.

Pictured at the Friends of Animals in CSPCA petition on Patrick Street last Saturday.

Alpacas know best

Alpacas know best

Several Alpacas were in Blarney earlier as part of a Bothar promotion to encourage people to support them. The animals, including one donkey, were a big hit with the kids. I only had my 50mm lens with me so no wide angle shots, but I did get a couple of nice ones.
