Student Cats

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

Toulouse

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tabby
DOB: November. 2019
Gender: Male
Personality: playful, talkative, a bit timid
Size: 4.7kg

My Story:

They call me Toulouse. I was rescued from a possum trap by a nice person named Fern when I was about two months old out in the East Wairarapa. Trusting humans does not come naturally to me but I am learning to like you. Once I know you are okay, I like to chat and play with you and even get petted and cuddled a bit. I am strong and likely to grow very big. I need someone who can play with me a lot and be patient with me in introducing me to your home. By the way, I am terrified of the carrier and sometimes, if I am in it for a while, I lose control of my bowels. It’s embarrassing and I hope you will forgive me.

Things I like: toys that I can hunt and chase, a good place to hide, a patient person who understands me.

 

Nina

Breed: Domestic Medium Hair
Colour: Black
DOB: October. 2019
Gender: Female
Personality: timid
Size: 4.0kg

My Story:

I, Nina, was born in the home of a nice lady in Woburn who keeps on feeding stray cats. I got a little chubby, so everyone thought I was pregnant. I wasn’t and the rich food I was getting to help my “pregnancy” made me even fatter! I wasn’t trying to fool anyone and now I am even trying to lose weight by not eating a full portion at meals. I am playful and love petting and brushing but don’t try to pick me up. I grew up around dogs and know how to handle myself around other cats but I would rather get your full attention. In the café I love to lie on the window beds, so please get at least one for me in my new home.

Things I like: tearing up boxes, laser pointer chasing, vertical scratchers, watching television and brushing

Eevee

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tabby
DOB: Feb. 2020
Gender: Female
Personality: timid, can be smoochie
Size: 2.4kg

My Story:

I, Eevee, am completely different to my sister Anzu even though we look alike. We came to the café through Rescue Free Kittens. I loved being with the foster of Neko Ngeru. It took me a while to trust, but once I did, I loved cuddles and lap time. Now, at the café, I am still watching everything from the highest place, trying to decide if it is safe. Maybe I will come down to play soon. After all, my sister is doing okay.

Things I like: a safe place to watch everything, a person to trust, jumping around like an acrobat

 

Anzu

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Tabby
DOB: Feb. 2020
Gender: Female
Personality: timid, smoochie, playful
Size: 2.5kg

My Story:

I, Anzu, was born in Petone along with my sister Eevee. Rescue Free Kittens contacted Richelle and Ken who came to pick us up. We don’t remember much about our early life, but our mama left us soon after we were born. Life in the café is so fun! I really like meeting new people who play with me and cuddle me. I can also get along with boy cats who are shy like Anzac.

Things I like: playing with any toy, lap cuddles when it is my choice of lap

 

Anzac (Anzac is waiting for his trial now!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black
DOB: 12/02/2020
Gender: Male
Personality: timid
Size: 2.0kg

My Story:

I, Anzac, was named after the day on which my sisters and I were rescued. The people of KittyCat Rehoming Wairarapa brought us in to be warm, dry and well fed.  I am the most cautious of us, but I have warmed up to my rescuers, and now Richelle, enough to enjoy being petted. I hang back until I am sure that the situation is safe. Call me timid if you want. I think I am just being smart. My collar is dark green and blue checks.

Things I like:  Hiding in the high box, food

Atawhai

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black
DOB: 12/02/2020
Gender: Female
Personality: playful
Size: 2.0kg

My Story:

I, Atawhai, was kindly rescued on Anzac Day by the nice people of KittyCat Rehoming.  Although my sister brother and I started rough, I learned quickly to enjoy a good warm fire and a friendly lap for morning pats. But I want to decide which lap I sit in, thanks.  I am curious and even started exploring the café quicker than my sister. My collar is dark grey with dots and I have a white dot on my neck.

Things I like: Play fight with Aroha, feather toy

 

Aroha

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Black
DOB: 12/02/2020
Gender: Female
Personality: playful
Size: 2.0kg

My Story:

I, Aroha, was rescued by KittyCat Rehoming Wairarapa on Anzac Day from a colony of stray cats with my sister and brother. We were young so we’ve gotten used to humans a bit, but we are still cautious and may always be. I love cuddles and sweet things. I can be mischievous too so watch out for small items that I could take and hide away. My collar and bell are pink.

Things I like: Play fight with Atawhai, feather toy

 

Peaches (Peaches wants to be a professor cat at Neko Ngeru!)

Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Colour: Ginger
DOB: Jan. 2020
Gender: Female
Personality: playful, bold
Size: 2.7kg

My Story:

I, Peaches, was surrendered to Rescue Free Kittens with my brothers, Beta and Kappa, but went directly to Neko Ngeru’s care. I am bold and curious and really like people. I’m not sure whether I like food or playing better since I am kind of easily distracted. I liked being fostered with Gladys, so other cats are fine by me and I am not afraid of children, but dogs scare me because one killed one of my siblings when I was really little.

Things I like: 

playing with toys and other cats
