Mog on the Tyne

Jaffa is our big loveable ginger tom cat. He loves to nap so there’s a 80% chance he will be asleep on your visit but if not, you will catch him jumping on the desk for attention from staff, which sends all of our flyers across the cafe! As soon as you touch him, he’s on instant purr mode. He likes to lick your face and get belly rubs. On his regular check up, our vet could only just hear his heartbeat as his purr was just so loud! Our little ones love to snuggle into his smooth fur so if Jaffa is ever missing, we know he’s just babysitting.


Our mammy cat! Gizmo is around 5 years old and so is a young mummy to our two black kittens; Maggie & Sir Francis which are both 2 and a half years old. Gizmo is probably the goofiest moggy you will ever meet, you can spot her doing her usual morning cardio on the cat wheel, spending the entire time meowing away. She is one of the more vocal cats in the café. If Gizmo isn’t keeping up with her workout routine you can usually find her snoozing next to a radiator or in a cat bed, after those hard hours running. Her party trick is catching a fly and eating it in one slow, cool swoop. She fully recognises her name so try calling her over and she will be impressed. Gizmo always bows her head for a stroke and is extremely friendly. She will look up at you with her big beautiful eyes and you won’t be able to resist! We especially love her two tone face and tortoise shell colouring which makes her extra unique.


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 personality, 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)


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!


Our not so little, male half bengal Rum absolutely loves a good stroke and always lies down because he enjoys it so much. His tail wags so fast like a dog when he’s happy! His identical sister and himself have the most beautiful markings. The only way to tell them apart is because Rum is bigger than petite Sybil. They play best with each other and its the cutest thing to watch. They wrestle around the cafe, who says brothers and sisters can’t get along! They totally love each other. Rum’s favourite toys are actually bouncy balls. If little Sybil lets out a cry, Rum is right there to rub himself against her like ‘big bro is here!’ We just know you’ll fall in love with Rum, he’s addictive!
