Newanewa

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tabby & White
DOB: 2018?
Gender: Female
Personality: confident
Size: 5.0kg

My Story:

I am a mystery. I came to the café through Feral Nation (where I had my kittens and got desexed a year ago) but I met Ken and Richelle at my house to prepare for a direct surrender before Christmas. I passed the personality test but couldn’t get my medical report organized so I slipped in through the rescuer. I heard that the café is the best place to find good humans, but I did not expect them to put me on a diet. It’s outrageous! I am so looking forward to finding my next humans who will spoil me. In return I will let you pet my very soft fur. What do you think

Things I like: 

wet food, going out at night, snuggling in bed with my favourite human

Atticus (Atticus is waiting for his trial!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Ginger
DOB: 20/10/2020
Gender: Male
Personality: Confident, playful
Size: 2.0kg

My Story:

Hello World, here I come! I’m Atticus and everything interests me. People are great. You give such good cuddles. I like to climb into your lap and give you smooches. You will be able to hear my loud purr. It is even okay to cradle me and pet my belly gently. Just don’t take advantage and grab me without my consent. I am not just a passive guy. I like to play with all the toys and explore new things.

Things I like: 

Playing, sleeping on human laps

 

Holly G

Breed: Domestic Long Hair
Colour: Tabby & White
DOB: 2015?
Gender: Female
Personality: quiet, loving
Size: 4.0kg

My Story:

Oh, hi. Did you want to know about me? I’m called Holly G. because I was living along Holly Grove in Maungaraki for four years. I’m not sure how I got there but I was a scared, little abandoned kitten until my people won my trust with food and affection. I still refused to live indoors all those years and they respected that. But now, when they had to move somewhere I could not go, I needed a new situation with new people to care for me so I came to the cafe. My teeth and the skin on my nose need some attention, but I will reward you with love and cuddles. I would prefer a quiet place where I can go in and out as I please once I am comfortable with you and your home, but I have learned that I can stay inside and be safe.

Things I like: 

hiding until called, brushing and cuddles

 

Mando (Mando is waiting for his trial with Chopper!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tuxedo
DOB: 20/10/2020
Gender: Male
Personality: Playful
Size: 2.0kg

My Story:

Hiya! I’m Mando. I love to cuddle but only on my own terms. I love my freedom too so, don’t hold me back! Playing is also cool, especially with hair ties—Chopper always tries to steal mine! But I get them back every time. I am kitten; hear me purr!

Besides Chopper, Atticus and Silver are my brothers and Carrie is our sister. We are Mama Vera’s kittens. She was a good mother to us even though we annoyed her a lot.  We have been around humans all our lives.

Things I like: 

hair ties, cuddling in moderation

Chopper (Chopper is waiting for his trial with mando!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tabby & White
DOB: 20/10/2020
Gender: male
Personality: sweet, a bit timid
Size: 2.0kg

My Story:

Oh, hello. I’m Chopper. It takes me a while to warm up to people but once I trust you, I’m all in. I love sleeping in laps and good tummy rubs from the right person. I’ve been getting really good at hunting flies and can jump real high to get them. Just as you’re leaving, I will remember all the things I wanted to say to you. Don’t leave me behind! By the way, I’m brother to Mando, Atticus, Silver and Carrie. We are Mama Vera’s kittens. She was a good mama to us even though we annoyed her a lot.  We have been around humans all our lives.

Things I like: 

sleeping in laps, belly rubs (from the right person) jumping high and talking to you as you leave.

Patch (Patch left for his trial with Pooka!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black & White
DOB: 06/10/2020
Gender: Male
Personality: friendly, playful
Size: 2.3kg

My Story:

I, Patch, used to be called Ninja. My brothers and I grew up around kids so we are fine with them. Ted and Luna got adopted by our first foster, but Bill, now called Pooka, and I are going on an excellent adventure and we want to stay together because we are best buds.  We love to play a lot, really like humans, and can’t seem to stop purring even at the vet. We look forward to meeting you at the café. Maybe your family is the just right one for us?

Things I like: 

string, feather toys, cuddles and petting, playing with my brother, Pooka

Pooka (Pooka left for his trial with Patch!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black & White
DOB: 06/10/2020
Gender: male
Personality: friendly, fearless, playful
Size: 2.3kg

My Story:

Hi! My name is Pooka formerly known as Bill. I’m named after some mischievous spirts in European folklore. I don’t mean to cause trouble but I sure do like to play. I really like humans, even the small ones. My brothers and I got used to them in our first home. I always want to be with my brother (now called Patch) because he is my best buddy. Anyone who gives us love will be well repaid because we are super affectionate and love to cuddle. We purr a lot. If you like that maybe your family is the right one for us.

Things I like: 

playing with his brother, Patch.

Billy (Billy left the cafe for his dental treatment)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tabby
DOB: May 2020
Gender: Male
Personality: playful
Size: 3.0kg

My Story:

Hello, I’m called Billy. I was rescued by KittyCat Rehoming Wairarapa and lived with lots of other cats and a big dog before I came to the café. I liked to play with them but not so much with the people. I didn’t eat much either.  The vet thought that I was allergic to the other cats’ food, so I got some special mince and powder. I didn’t like that. Neko Ngeru tried chicken mush and I love it! The people want me to get over my allergy so I can eat Royal Canin like the other cats here, but I am not sure I want to stop eating chicken mush.

Things I like: 

playing, hiding and other cats
