Feline Fact of the Week

“Some cats have survived falls of over 65 feet (20 meters), due largely to their “righting reflex.” The eyes and balance organs in the inner ear tell it where it is in space so the cat can land on its feet. Even cats without a tail have this ability.”

Happy Pens

28 October 2012
Cat pens: good luck to Tizzy and Casper who have moved on to new homes! New arrivals are Fudge, a gorgeous chocolate box ginger cat, and Piper and Angel who are incredibly shy – but friendly – hiding under their blankets. Meanwhile Kiki is coming out of her shell, and George was desperate for attention. Stoker and Todd in good spirits, and Alfie singing as usual – he is reserved so probably won’t be there next week.

Memories of a Special Feral Cat

20 October 2013
Cat pens update: six kittens plus weary mother! All tabby bar one black, seven weeks old. Adorable beyond words. Also today, my favourites Munchkin and Tigger were rehomed to a lovely couple. Less good news re: Aaron (pictured). Our resident feral “pet” hasn’t been seen for 10 days. Speed home safely Aaron…

(update: Aaron returned home safely shortly after this post.)

Melting Memories

More from the cat pens log:

21 October 2012
Cat pens update: The beautiful Tizzy and mysterious black cat Casper are both reserved, meanwhile new cat George is rivalling Alfie as to who is most vocal! Kiki is less shy, and very happy to be stroked. Todd and Stoker enjoying their turn in the outer corridor – and the Whiskas pouches I took with me ensured everyone was in a good mood! Aaron our resident feral was around for his breakfast, he loves all our cat residents, rubbing against the pen mesh wall and trying to engage with them, with some more successfully than with others!!
