We thank you all for your continued support.

In other news, our cattery is currently full of many adorable feline friends, all looking for a home of their own.

First up we have the very sweet Gwen, who is two years old and is now ready to find the perfect family.

Gwen is a shy girl who can be easily scared, she needs a family that will give her time to settle in and adjust to her new life.


Once she gets to know you, she really enjoys the company and the bustle. Gwen is suitable for living with another calm, friendly cat and older teenagers 16+.

Gwen is not fit to live with dogs.

Then we have our Brandy who is a very shy boy who spends his days in bed huddled under his covers.

The only time we manage to wake him up is with a tasty treat. He particularly likes Lick-e-lix.

Head over to our Facebook page to see him enjoy his favorite snack.


We think it would be beneficial for Brandy if his new owners could provide him with his own bedroom to start with so he can have his own safe space while he grows in confidence with his new owners.

This is to ensure he doesn’t feel overwhelmed when he first leaves the cattery. Brandy needs a pet-free home with adults only.

Tango is another handsome boy from the neighborhood.

He is two years old and another shy boy who will need a lot of time, patience and tlc.


Tango is often seen sunbathing in his outer pod watching the world go by. He is also seen playing with toys having a lot of fun, which is fun to watch.

We think Tango would be best in a home as a single pet and with sensitive children aged 14+, a quiet quiet home is a must and we think a space for him to settle in and growing in confidence would help.

For anyone looking for a cat, we also have the beautiful Lola. She is a very sweet and shy girl who loves attention.

Lola needs a calm and quiet home to settle down.


Lola loves to sunbathe in hot weather, so we think she will enjoy a nice garden to relax in.

Lola needs a pet-free home but is suitable for living with older children 10+.
