Gladys

Gladys arrived at the café at just 8 weeks old, being the only kitten of her litter ready to leave the shelter. Don’t let her small size fool you though, she is slowly becoming the big boss around here and is giving Stan a run for his money! She loves nothing more than a good bound around the café after any toys she might discover, any cat tails she comes across and even sometimes her own tail. She is definitely a welcome addition into our little Mog family, and we think she will make a big impact on you lovely customers too!

Gary

Gary was the last of his triplets at the shelter and spent a couple of weeks playing around there before finding his furrever home here at the café. He was the most socialable and excitable kitten at the shelter, so we knew he would be perfect here! He started off not quite as confident as Gladys (who arrived at the same time as him) but within a week of living at the café, he was already following Stan around looking for scraps of hooman food! He is definitely going to be as greedy as Stan, if not greedier! He is our first long haired cat and we can’t wait to watch him grow and his fur thicken over the next few years.

Rehomed Cats –>

If we adopt any cat that becomes unhappy or is not mixing well with our other cats anymore, we find nice new furrever homes for them! We specifically pick homes that will cater to their needs, whether it be a single cat household, a house with a garden, a house with no children etc. Here are our previous residents which you may have met in the past…

Tokyo

Tokyo is the brother to our Jaffa, but these two ginger tom cats could not be more different! Eventually, Tokyo became uninterested in the other cats and used to hide under one of the tables. However we noticed our regular customer Saffron who visited every week, had developed some sort of bond with Tokyo! He would roll over for her, let her touch is belly (which is a huge sign of trust) and go to her when she walked through the door. So of course if Tokyo was to be happier in Saffron’s house, we decided that’s where he should live! Now they are very happy together indeed.

Maggie

As the daughter of Gizmo and sister of Sir Francis, Maggie defiantly has just as strong noble character, although it was noticed that she was the more timid of the family. Often she’d be by Gizmo’s side looking for comfort and attention from her mother. Unfortunately these feelings weren’t mutual, sassy Gizmo liked to do her own thing. We became concerned that she may not be happy living with a group of other cats so in turn made the decision to move her to her new home with one of our cat slaves, Maggie has adapted quickly and now lives with a variety of reptiles. She now has the run of a mini zoo! 

Tinks

Tinks used to like sitting up on the shelves in the cafe and keeping herself to herself. She has also been an outdoor cat but was rescued due to being pregnant, so she had the urges to go outside. We would take her out on her harness but that wasn’t quite the same. She now lives with Cafe owner Katie in the countryside, where she loves to catch field mice and bring them home as presents! She’s so happy now to freely go in and outdoors.
