Student Cats

These cats are learning how to behave around humans and other cats!

Jet

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black
DOB: 19/09/2019
Gender: Male
Personality:  strong, playful
Size: 3.4kg

My Story:

I, Jet, was the last to get a name but usually am the first to go out and explore. I can be vocal to let you know what I want. I am the biggest and strongest of the boys, but I am not a tough guy–just a natural leader. After our operations, the girls stayed with our first foster and we boys went to another. That’s where we all started to develop different characters. I did get us all into trouble at the fosters’ by breaking us out of the kitchen and joining my brothers in chewing up a lot of cords and knocking over mugs and stuff.  I can’t help it; I just love a good challenge.

 Things I like: 

playing—especially with feather toys, staying in a high place and cuddling you.

Tyrion

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tabby
DOB: 19/09/2019
Gender: Male
Personality: snuggly, playful
Size: 2.7kg

My Story:

I, Tyrion, was the second to be named. I heard that I share the name with somebody on TV, but I know nothing about it. I always hang back when the other cats are playing. I like watching better. I love to hang out in a high place and watch the world go by.  As a matter of fact, I like watching human activities too—litter box cleaning is fascinating. Cuddling and snuggling with humans are my favourite things.

 Things I like: 

playing—especially with feather toys, watching you work and cuddling you.

Puss in Boots

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tuxedo
DOB: 19/09/2019
Gender: Male
Personality: friendly, playful
Size: 2.6kg

My Story:

I, Puss in Boots, was named by our first family. That was a loving home where we always had good care and plenty of food. But the people there wanted to make sure we got into the best homes and they knew they didn’t have time to do it themselves, so they gave us to Neko Ngeru. Everyone who named us is a sponsor who helped to pay for our operations and vaccinations. I was the smallest at first, but I am plenty healthy and strong. I love to hang out in a high place to watch everything that’s going on. But playing is fun and I’ll come down to cuddle with you as well.

 Things I like: 

playing—especially with feather toys, watching you work and cuddling you.

Nabi

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: White with black spots
DOB: 19/09/2019
Gender: Female
Personality: snuggly, playful
Size: 2kg

My Story:

I, Nabi, was the first to be named by a sponsor, so I will go first. I was born into a loving home where my siblings and I always had good care and plenty of food. Because of this, we trust humans very well. My name means butterfly in Korean because of the markings on my face. I wait until I am sure a situation is safe before I come out, but it does not take me long to decide. I know how to play fetch, but I don’t like to do it when other cats are around. You should see how high I can jump! When it is nap time, I may just fall asleep on you. (I have white ears so keep me inside or put sunscreen on me daily.)

 Things I like: 

playing—especially with feather toys, fetch and cuddling you.

Zoe

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: White with tabby spots
DOB: 19/09/2019
Gender: Female
Personality: snuggly, playful
Size: 2.3kg

My Story:

I, Zoe, the bravest and prettiest, was a little bit naughty about the litter box at first, but I’ve grown out of that. I was first to be visited at the café by my sponsor. I came out to play right away and have no fear of anyone or anything in the café. I trust humans very well, really like your attention and will cuddle and play with you heaps!  I like to nibble on your fingers as you play with me, so it is better if you have a toy in hand. I am very strong and want to chase every toy I see. Cuddling is fine, but play is better. (I have white ears so keep me inside or put sunscreen on me daily.)

 Things I like: 

playing—especially with feather toys, grooming my siblings and cuddling you.

Hansel

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Ginger/White
DOB: April 2019
Gender: Male
Personality:  talkative, playful
Size: 4.4kg

My Story:

Hi, my name is Hansel. So, where’s Gretel, you ask? Actually, my sister is named Gretel, but she got adopted before me. I came to Feral Nation with her, my other sister, Fatty Girl, and my mother, MeCat. Fatty Girl and MeCat both had their kittens at Feral Nation. We cats don’t have the same rules you humans do. But I have been told I cannot make any more kittens so that’s a good thing. I feel I have to act tough in front of the other cats, but I don’t really want to fight. I got along with the kittens at Feral Nation quite well.  I seem a bit timid at first, but I love to play and once I get to know you, I will have a lot to say.

 Things I like: 

playing—especially with feather toys, brushing with the glove brush, fetch and talking to you.

Montana

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black and White
DOB: April 2019
Gender: Female
Personality: playful and snuggly with humans, hate other cats
Size: 3.2kg

My Story:

I, Montana, was surrendered to Feral Nation with my four kittens. I was so severely underweight; I could not nurse them. It was sad, but I was happy to leave them so I could gain a little weight myself. In my old house, we couldn’t even get enough water. Now, I have experienced so much good care, I love human beings! I cannot say the same for other cats, though. The last time I played with other cats, I got pregnant! I was just a kitten myself and because of them I am likely to remain small for the rest of my life. It’s hard for me to be with all the café cats. I’m managing to get along (with a bit of hissing and scratching) but, I would like to be an only cat.

 Things I like: 

playing, getting petted

Romeo (Romeo left for a trial!)

Breed: Domestic Medium Hair
Colour: White/Grey Tabby
DOB: Dec 2011
Gender: Male
Personality: friendly
Size: 4.8kg

My Story:

I, Romeo, was surrendered to Neko Ngeru so I could find a better life. My people loved me and wanted what’s best for me. They saw that I was lonely after my brother died, so they thought I should go where there are other cats for me to play with. Also, the mom was sneezing more and more and the son who cared for me most was going away to university. I like people and will cuddle up next to you though I don’t like to be held. As a matter of fact, I hate being contained. I will get used to being inside, though.

 Things I like: 

Sleeping, getting petted

Pan

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black
DOB: 31/10/2019
Gender: Female
Personality: timid
Size: 4.6kg

My Story:

I, Pan, am the daughter of two abandoned cats living near Masterton Hospital. I was rescued by KittyCat Rehoming. I seem shy at first but will sit next to you and watch TV with you to keep you company. I’m not too needy but like a fuss occasionally on my own terms. I would probably not like to be in a house with young children or dogs. They scare me. Other cats are fine. I can play with them if they are willing. Natasha has been my companion for as long as I can remember. I really want to stay with her forever and hope you will love her too.

 Things I like: 

hiding in low places, watching what you are doing

Saxon (Saxon goes for a trial on Feb. with Oscar!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black
DOB: December /2018
Gender: Male
Personality: timid
Size: 2.8kg

My Story:

I’m Saxon, one of Sage’s brothers. You should read her story to find out how we were rescued from the dump. I wear the brown collar because I look a lot like my brother Shylo. I may hang back at first in new situations but am super playful once I feel secure. I won’t just jump in your lap like my sister, but I will ask you for petting. Loud noises don’t phase me too much, I just go to my safe place until I’m comfortable. I got used to a large dog at my first foster’s house.

 Things I like:

the feather toy, petting, low hiding places.

Oscar (Oscar goes for a trial on Feb. with Saxon!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Ginger
DOB: June 2018
Gender: Male
Personality: playful, a bit shy
Size: 4.0kg

My Story:

I, Oscar, was also rescued from the dump and will probably always have to overcome distrust of humans at first. I have been learning that some of you are very good. Cait Sith trained my sister and me at the Okada house. Play is the way to my heart. Once I trust you, I love to be petted and brushed. I tried to trust my first adoptive family but had to return. I’m grateful I got a second chance at the café. Next time, I need to move more slowly.

 Things I like:

petting and playing with any toy
