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…

Tyrian

Tyrian was one of the smallest cats when she came to the café, yet the most adventurous  and daring family member. Although she has gotten bigger she is still small, her size doesn’t bother her, because she’s very mighty, which is why she got her name! (After the G.oT. character) She can switch from play mode to stroke mode faster than our other cats, which makes her super friendly even at the younger age of 2 and a half. Her favourite hobby (of course after trying to steal the cream from your hot chocolate) is climbing across our bridge! She even naps up there for some peace and quiet, if she isn’t napping on the bridge she is usually squishing Rum or Sybil, trying to nap on them. You will probably find her coming over and giving you a good sniff to suss you out. If your very still, she will climb on to your lap for a short while and will never shy away from a stroke – before going off to chase something again!

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. 

YouTube..

We have made a little YouTube video to keep you up to date with our mogs (they’re growing so fast!). Also if you’ve never visited us before, this is a great way to learn all their names!
