[R] Suppressing output (e.g. from cat)

Is it possible to temporarily suspend output? I am using a function that gives lots of output using cat, that is not very informative. Is it possible to turn output off, run the function, then turn output back on again? I've looked at ?options and done various RSiteSearch()s but couldn't find a way to do this.

Many thanks,
