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!
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.
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 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.
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 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_
