BALLET AND WOBBLE

We have two new rescue cats from a cat sanctuary in Thailand! Founder Katie fell in love with the 2 cats, she knew she wanted to bring them to the café as they would get all the love and attention they needed right here at Mog on the Tyne. She was asked if she could take them on and so we raised enough money to bring the cats over, all in the form of donations received from the amazing customers who came to Mog on the Tyne.
Having Wobble and Ballet at the café ensures that they will have the best quality of life possible. Both cats were born around the same time but not in the same litter, with the neurological disorder called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. This neurological disorder is not progressive and they have both had the disorder since birth. You will see both cats being adorable wobbling about the café, but don’t worry they are both very happy and healthy! 



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 our first long haired cat and we can’t wait to watch him grow and his fur thicken over the next few years. His hobby on the weekends is lead singer in his tribute band: Gary White (Gary has a very deep meow!)

Ballet

Ballet arrived to the café with Wobble, they were both from an animal sanctuary in Thailand. Our founder Katie fell in love with the 2 cats and was asked if she could bring them to the cat café, as they would get all the love and attention they needed right here at Mog on the Tyne. We raised money to bring the cats over, all money came from donations received from the amazing customers who came to Mog on the Tyne. Having Ballet and Wobble at the café ensures that they will have the best quality of life as possible. Both cats were born with a neurological disorder called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. You will see both cats being adorable wobbling about the café, but don’t worry they are both very happy and healthy cats, the neurological disorder they have is not progressive, they have both had the disorder since birth. Ballet is a friendly kitty, she loves nothing more than settling down in a comfy place, usually on the settee, to have lots of stokes from all the customers, however Ballet is a very head strong kitty and will definitely will let you know what she has had enough cuddles. 

Wobble

Wobble arrived to the café with Ballet, they were both from an animal sanctuary in Thailand. Our founder Katie fell in love with the 2 cats and was asked if she could bring them to the cat café, as they would get all the love and attention they needed right here at Mog on the Tyne.

You will see both cats being adorable wobbling about the café, but don’t worry they are both very happy and healthy cats, the neurological disorder they have is not progressive, they have both had the disorder since birth. Wobble is a very loving cat especially if he is sat on the settee, he will jump into many customers laps for nothing more than strokes. He is a little bit odd and will sometimes try and lick your fingers. Wobble is extremely playful when he is on the floor, he enjoys trying to catch many different cat toys, if he isn’t trying to catch a toy he will dive bomb into many different cat tunnels or tents. 

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.
