Mog on the Tyne

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 is our first long haired cat and we can’t wait to watch him grow and see 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!)

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…

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. Both cats were born with a neurological disorder called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. 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 and Ballet now live with founder Katie in her home as they need constant attention and special care, so they are now in the best hands for their quality of life!

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 founder 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.

Gladys

Gladys arrived at the café at just 8 weeks old, being the only kitten of her litter ready to leave the shelter. She arrived at the cafe with fellow kitten Gary, who grew to become a big brother figure with her. The two were a whirlwind of mischievous fun, always on the prowl for cream and cake!

She had a wonderful 3 years with us here at Mog on the Tyne before moving onto a single cat house hold with a friend of ours who is a regular cafe guest. Now she can get all the attention she needs, all to herself!

Wobble

Wobble arrived at our café with Ballet, they are both rescues from an animal sanctuary in Thailand. Our founder Katie fell in love with the 2 cats and was asked if she could bring them over to the cat café! Wobble now lives with Katie in the countryside as he likes to have all the attention to himself and also have a frolic outside, with Katies supervision of course! We feel this is a more suited life for him and you can keep up to date with his adventures on his instagram: @wobble_cat_
