Greetings Humans

Many of you have come to the café so Richelle and Ken are feeling grateful. Inky says that all the cats are working very hard, although I suspect he is working hard on his sleeping techniques. I came to supervise the cats a few times last month—they need more discipline.


There are only seven cats right now. It seems odd that more are not coming in quickly, but we have only had Jess come in since the last month. She is about 3 years old and been a mother many times but she likes humans and other cats so is well suited for us. I hope to be able to train some more as I have heard there will be some new cats coming in the next few weeks. 

Since we had so few new cats, we had to slow down the adoptions. However, we did see Lola, Elle and Nesbit go to new homes last month. Richelle and Ken had almost given up hope that Lola would find a human she could love, but I knew it would happen. She just had to find someone to appreciate her independent spirit. I heard that she is quite content as an only cat.

Elle’s new companion

Elle has also found a good match in a loving home. She is devoted to her new family, sleeping on the daughter’s bed and comfortable with their daily routine. But, whenever visitors come, she still hides. I understand not everyone can be as brave as I am.

Nesbit’s new human mom.

Nesbit is a great success with his new family. He is full of so much love. Although I think ‘love bites’ are a perfectly natural way to express my feelings, Richelle does not like them. She was trying to teach Nesbit not to be so exuberant. Well, the new family reports that that habit has just about stopped. That’s some self-discipline, Nesbit!

The other news is that Ken and Richelle are trying new menu items and making them from scratch. There’s always a hot, homemade soup; pulled pork sandwiches (influenced by Richelle’s Californian heritage), and choux a la crème that are my favourite catler Julia’s secret recipe.

We look forward to seeing lots of students and their families during their school holidays. It would probably be a good idea to book online or call to check if there is space when you are planning to come to see us at the café. We do not want you to be disappointed. See you soon and thanks again!
