Mog on the Tyne

OUR CATS
All of our cats and kittens are rescues which have come from local or over seas shelters and sanctuaries.
We have re-homed them all here at Mog on the Tyne as permanent residents! We feel it’s so important to raise awareness of homeless, stray and abandoned cats and so we highly recommend adopting cats from a shelter. Here are our moggies who are dying to meet you all…

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!)

Sir Francis

This handsome chap got his name because of his amazing white moustache! (And obviously he likes to wear a top hat and play poker in his spare time.) Sir Francis is the son to tortoise shell, Gizmo and everyday she wonders why her teenage son is still living at home. He’s a big softy, although he will silently judge you from a far – usually from the hanging bridge on the ceiling, where he will play fetch with you with a feather toy! It has been known, if you sit on the floor knee’s bent, he may wonder on to your lap!! Be warned for when Francis is in a very happy mood he will become a dribble machine, redecorating your favourite pair of jeans. 

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. 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.

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. 

Wednesday

Wednesday (Addams) is our only all black cat, rescued from a farm with sister Bear. She’s super affectionate and once you give her attention she likes to show it back – mainly by climbing all over you and sitting on your shoulder! Her purr is super loud so you know how happy she is always. She loves to play with toys in the tunnel so give something a shake in there and she’ll come running!

Bear

Rescued from a Farm with sister Wednesday, our little bear has a big personality! Her purr is extremely loud, you’ll hear it across the cafe. She likes to try and jump across tables but sometimes fails, thinking she’s bigger than she actually is. Bear has claimed top spot above Stan for food stealing and even sometimes dipping her head in your coffee! Only one way to learn what everything is around here we guess!

Stan

Stan the man, was the first member of our family and he is the oldest out of all our moggies, but age is only a number and we are sure Stan feels as fresh as a kitten. Stan has a very big personally, he enjoys getting morning cuddles sat on the settee, if you’re lucky he may sit on your lap. On the other hand you can usually find him trying to steal all the customers food, which he certainly believes is his food and not for anyone else. If Stan isn’t causing mischief around the café he will be snoozing at the top of a cat tree. Stan will get very protective over the cat trees, so when you see him lazing on them, he would prefer to be left alone. Stan suffered a terrible road accident before being rescued. Miraculously he survived and the only side effect has been his tongue on show and a massive appetite at all times. One thing we know for sure Stan is the ‘Boss’ of everyone. (Including the staff) 

Sybil

Meet Sybil, our female half bengal, tabby kitty. She’s a cute bundle of joy but don’t be fooled by her good looks – she may steal your belongings or give you a sassy paw if she’s not wanting a fuss! Our bengals are little thieves and love to snoop in your bag. She is seriously all about play time – especially when it involves pouncing on her brother Rum. You will probably find them snuggled up together. They tend to stick together a lot, it’s adorable! Sometimes she lets out a very high pitched meow (I’m hungry), and rum will always come running to make sure she’s okay!
