Doris Update - 25th August 2015


Doris was spayed and micro-chipped on Wednesday 19 August. Liz tried to put Doris in a warm, comfortable room as the vet suggested; however, she screamed until she was reunited with Milo and Lilia. Doris chased the big girls for an hour before it all caught up with her. Doris has been eating well and the vet gave her a clean bill of health. She really is a joy to have around and a credit to you both.

All the best,

Gary

Lily Update - 22nd August 2015

Lily is doing really well and is very settled, she is happy, and is great friends with all the other cats, she even gets cuddles with Elsie, ! !

She's very affectionate, and follows us around the house like a shadow ! Oh yes, her eyes stayed blue! She is stunningly beautiful.

I hope everything goes well with Mary, looking forward to seeing the babies.

Lots of love, Julie Adem and Tarik xxxxxx

Doris Update - 19th June 2015

Hi Sharon and Kevin,

 

I hope you are both well. Doris is a happy and healthy girl! She is full of energy and loves interacting with Milo, Lilia, Liz and me.

 

Milo has fully accepted Doris and loves to watch her running around. Lilia has taken longer to accept Doris. But, they have been playing together and Liz found the two of them asleep in the same basket today.

 

Please find attached a photo of Milo, Lilia and Doris in the same bed. I will send more photos next week: it's been impossible to catch them all playing together, Doris is so sprightly!

 

Cheers

CHESNEY

Chesney Update - 22nd January 2015


Hello Sharon & Kevin


Hope you are both ok and would like to give you an update on Chesney’s progress.


I can’t believe it has been a week already today and cannot imagine our home as it was without him now.


He currently has his own little domain in our lounge and at first was very tentative to step into the kitchen and not at all up the stairs.  A week later, he bounces up the stairs and explores everywhere, even though sometimes he hairs downstairs with a very bushy tail J (obviously something he is not sure), but comes straight away looking for reassurance.


He has a very loving nature and loves lots of kisses and cuddles and loves his food, although he eats in stages, does climb in and licks his bowl clean.


He has found a little blanket he really likes which I have put in his bed that he sucks and kneads when he needs to and is ever so good in the evenings, never crying once since he has been here.


I have attached some pictures for you and will give regular updates on his progress.

Take care and speak soon.

Dilys with Jasper ‘n’ Aggi - Update - 4th December 2014


Hi Sharon and Kevin


Both Aggi and Jasper are doing really well, still eating together (J has a tendancy to scoff everything given the chance), they are currently losing their baby teeth and love playing together and with Dilys. Dilys adores them and is really good with feeding them and the litter chores etc as she is home first. They have different personalities but both are very affectionate. We are looking forward to having our first Christmas with them, not sure how a tree and decorations will survive though!


Best wishes,


Julia, Andy, Dilys, Jasper and Aggi xxx


Tiffany - Update - 21st September 2014


Hi Sharon and Kevin


She's a different baby today thank you for the good advice yesterday she's eating and drinking fine now think she's settling in now. I have to say we are over the moon with her, her personality, cleanliness and attitude is perfect just a few pics for you to look at.

Take care speak soon.


Love Lisa Steve and Tiffany xx


James (aka Jasper) & Kissy (aka Aggi)

Update - 1st October 2014


Hi Sharon & Kevin,

 

Sorry it’s taken so long to get some “settling in photos”to you but you are right, they don’t sit still for long!  To say they have a healthy appetite is an understatement.  In terms of activities, eating playing and sleeping appear to come in equal measures.

 

Jasper (aka James) has developed the very significant ability of VTOL, vertical take off and landing.  Sunday, as a treat for the kittens, we invited Andy’s parents down for Sunday dinner (roast chicken on the menu), always a favourite with our old Siamese duo.  So Monday evening it was “treat for dinner”night.  The kittens turned from sweet playful little things into rampant savages (definitely traits of Gremlins!!!).  Jasper was standing on the floor and Andy had their plate at chest height.  Next we knew, there was a pair of paws and associated kitten attached to the plate trying to do pull ups.  Andy ended up having to mix the chopped chicken, the kitten Whiskers and the biscuits up above head height to avoid having a pair of dangling kittens.

 

Both are eating very well, the 4 to 5 meals a day are greeted with the same level of enthusiasm, prompting the common question, are we feeding them enough?  I guess all is being converted into growth or expended in the play times.  Neither has shown any sign of turning their nose up at what we give them and the added treats of lightly poached Hake, Sardines (Waitrose in spring water!!!!!), Roast Chicken and Cheese, only goes to show that as kittens they are becoming accustomed to the finer things in life, and as one of Andy’s work colleagues requested, “can I come round and have dinner with the kittens, they eat better than me!”

 

They each have favourite toys and at times it’s like having toddlers in the house.  Jasper loves his “worm” and Aggi her “sheep”.  If either are playing, and the other gets close, a low rumbling growl is emitted from the “owner” of said toy to warn off the other.  It’s funny, both have almost identical growls but very different meows.

 

They have settled into the new routine very well.  Staying up later, but generally flaked out by 8-30 pm, though on chicken night, they were hyper until nearly 10pm.  Both get up with Andy and Dilys at 6-30am, spending time between playing and breakfast, and more exploring (if we forget to keep the bedroom doors closed).  Aggi likes the bath and the other world of under bed exploring must be like a new playground everyday for them, the slightest opportunity to get in and under and both disappear for 10 minutes.

 

As you can see from the above, we think they are settled in and happy.  Very sociable with visitors as well, and now quite happy for the vacuum, washing machine and tumble dryer to be on in their presence.  Both sat with Andy on Sunday morning watching the washing go round!

 

Dilys plays with them for a couple of hours when she gets home from school, so normally by 5-30 to 6pm they are ready for cuddles and a bit of telly watching, which they have taken to and curl up with Dilys and Julia on one of many fleecy blankets.

 

Hopefully the pictures attached are suitable for the blog, though not up to your standard, though they both know the sound of a shutter!!!

 

Love to both of you, and we’ll keep you up dated of progress. (The weigh in last weekend showed about 120 grams increase each, and we think Jasper is back on track, and wouldn’t be surprised if he’s closing the gap with Aggi).  Neither would stay still so the weights are only guestimates, but both were nearly 1400 grams on Saturday am, and we’re expecting more this week.

Dolly - Update - 14th June 2014


Hi Sharon and Kevin


Just thought I'd let you know that Dolly has now made friends with everyone even Tia AKA the Evil One. She shares her bed with Kayli or curls up on a chair with Tia. She even plays with the dogs chasing their tails and biting their paws. She was so funny the other morning I'd given the dogs some left over sausages and one of them dropped half of one, Dolly pounced on it and when the dogs tried to get it back she stood growling at them then she ran off and ate it as fast as she could. She is a little devil at mealtimes if you don't shut her out you spend all your time pushing her down as she tries to steal your food. Dolly knows exactly who is the boss at home - she is!!! As I write this she is lying across my chest occasionally trying to help type. She follows me around the house like a little shadow demanding my attention at every opportunity - if I try to read a book or magazine she attacks it, I think most of my newest books have teeth marks and chewed corners now but I wouldn't be without her.

Amadeus (aka Benson, “Benny”)-Update - 28th May 2014


Hi Sharon and Kevin


I have attached some pictures of our new family member 'Benny' , Sharon... I just cannot believe how well he has settled in, no accidents, no crying oh unless he is telling dad off lol ... he certainly rules the roost. I love him so much and he knows my voice now so when I visit he comes running for a snuggle in my jumpers i wear. I now have a new name just for Benny ' aunty snuggle jumper ', lol. He is my little star.

He met my little doggies yesterday i could not believe how relaxed he was and how he handled it; we took it slow and dad held Benson whilst the dogs just sat looking up at him, then dad put him on the floor behind the glass door and closed it… they all sat looking at each other through the glass. Benny was so brave and calm, he is amazing. I miss him so much when I am not there and would bring him home if mum and dad would let go of him lol, they adore him. Sharon, life in our family has been made so much brighter with having Benny in it . Thank you again so much, i believe this is all due to how you nurture your kittens and I cannot wait to have a little one of my very own, even when I do though, Benny will always have a special place in my heart and life.

Love Katheryn

Dolly - Update


Hi Sharon


Just thought id let you know how Dolly is settling in. She loves to tease the other cats, she sneaks up behind them and when they turn to look hisses in their faces and runs off. She has decided that i am her personal bed, her favourite place to sleep is tucked under my chin. We haven't managed to get many photos yet as every time you go to press the button she moves, she's like lightning. I am absolutely loving having her as part of the family, i can't imagine being without her.


Love Tracy xxx


Ps the third pic is with my stepdad Steve who Dolly met for the first time yesterday and instantly decided was the ideal cushion

Tommy (aka Ansem) Update - May 2014


Hello Sharon and Kevin


Tommy is very happy, healthy and growing fast.


Milo and Lilia (Monica & Tickle) March ‘14 Update


Milo and Lilia are healthy and happy. We tried to weigh them today on our analogue kitchen scale! Milo was around 2.2 kg and Lilia was around 2 kg. They are the best of friends, doing everything together. I hope you like the photos.


All the best,


Gary and Liz


P.S. Milo and Lilia are named after the gymnasts Lavinia Milosovici and Lilia Podkopayeva


*********************


Tommy (aka Ansem) Update


Hi Sharon & Kevin


Just letting you know we got back safe. Tommy didn't spend long in the cage he was screaming. As soon as I opened the door he got onto my lap and went to sleep, was fine the whole way home. As soon as we got in he ate his dinner and had a drink, was throwing around the toys we got him like he's always been here. I was lying on my front and he got on my back/neck and went to sleep with his head resting on the back of mine. And he's currently sleeping on matts chest! He's purring like mad and seems super happy. Not stressed in the slightest. He is everything I wanted and more.


Kind regards,


Charles

Jet (aka Shaka) Update


Hi Sharon and Kevin


3. The bond between these two is definitely growing, they sleep together and are inseparable, I am very pleased.  Shaka has a lovely temperament and is so soft, he has fallen in love with his new white mouse and growls if Spud gets to close, very cute…


2. Two days later - Spud and Shaka slept with each other all night!


1. Just a quick not to let you know that Shaka is doing fine.  He really cried on the way home so I put my hand in his box and he settled down and fell a sleep.  At home it did not take him long to find his food, have a big wee and climb up and snuggle into my neck.  Late last night I introduced him to Spud and they have sniffed and licked.

Taz (aka Charlie Brown) Update


Hi Sharon & Kevin.


Just a couple of settling in shots of Charlie Brown.


The only time he is still enough for photos is whilst asleep!


He is so so loving. Unbelievable. He is non stop cuddles. Unfortunately he would have been better living with a pirate though, since they are more adept at carrying their pets on their shoulders. I've found cooking a challenge with him round my neck lol!


He has been really great with eating, drinking and visiting the litter tray. And although the other cats have been giving him the cold shoulder he has continued to do his best to love them, mainly whilst they are asleep and unaware, just fireworks when their eyes open and they find Charlie Brown nose to nose.


Anyway we love him. He is perfect. Thank you so much.


Will send better pix ASAP!


With our love

Kim & Glenn xxx

Monica and Tickle (Lilia and Milo) Update


Hi Sharon and Kevin,


Monica and Tickle are safe and well! Forgive me for not writing sooner, but I’ve just got to work. You would be proud of the healthy, happy kittens you’ve raised: they got straight out of the carrier and began exploring their new home (just one room for now). Monica and Tickle had lunch, played with Liz and me, and even used their litter tray. They seem to derive great confidence from each other. I’ll write again soon.


All the best,

Hi Sharon and Kevin


We love Issey and Honey; they are everything!


They are the most beautiful loving cats, not a bad bone in them.


Everyone just adores them.


Issey and Honey are wonderful!! They are just so beautiful and we love them both so much. They love cuddling and sitting on our knees.


They have grown up into beautiful elegant ladies but to me they will always be mummies baby girls.

Issey & Honey (aka Lizzie) Update - May 2014


Hi Sharon & Kevin


Thank you for your email and birthday wishes to Issey & Honey.


We love Issey & Honey with all our hearts and can't imagine life without them. Our whole life's revolve around them and I wouldn't have it any other way!  We recently had a new kitchen and bathroom, the builders soon got used to the fact everything had to be kitten proof and suited for them, they stopped asking if I liked it, just used to say "will the kittens like it"!  


I've attached some photos of Issey & Honey, the first two are from their birthday breakfast this morning with their cards! Oh and there's one of Issey helping her mummy wash the pots!


Lots of love

Donna, Colin Issey & Honey

Xx



Hi Sharon & Kevin


The girls are settling in well, they are weeing and pooing well and have used their tray every time. They are eating their four meals a day (Issey comes and helps me dish up in the kitchen!). We are all getting used to one another, I got  them listening to radio 4 with me this morning, I think they liked it better than the football with Colin yesterday but do not tell Colin! Lol!


I've got a couple of pictures for you, I think the one with them on my knee they are in competition trying to be the longest kitten!


Love Donna & Colin

THE VALENTINE LITTER

I’m having a Birthday - Rosie


Hi Sharon & Kevin,


Hope you all well!


Saw your lovely new kittens but was a good job we didn’t look earlier otherwise we would have been tempted!


Rosie is doing absolutely fine she is a treasure we couldn’t imagine being without her.  She is always up to mischief but when she isn’t she is riding on your shoulder or wanting cuddles.   She does something very weird, maybe an oriental thing – when she is excited or very happy her tail bushes into something resembling a bottle brush which in extreme cases includes her back too…most amusing!   


I have attached an assortment of photo’s I am sure you will see from the last ones she has grown somewhat and her markings are just beautiful…just like Rosie herself!


Take care, Love Karen and Ryan….and Rosie xxx


Birthday Thanks - Noodle & Slinky


Hi Sharon and Kevin,


Thank you for the birthday wishes love the ecard! The gang are having a great day despite the weather being dreadful.


Here’s a few Valentines/Birthday shots...


Love from all of us here xxxx


Birthday Girl - Sakura


She is being spoilt & is a great little lady she is so good for me, she's started to come in the bath now she used to cry but loves to sit with you & have a nice warm bath, she's all clean nails clipped and ears cleaned for her birthday, she is doing extremely well she follows me everywhere you would adore her if you saw her & how well she is looked after, I call her my princess she gets priority on the couch with me b4 the boys, I've weaned her onto her bigger food & she's loving it. Plus her chicken in-between.


Hope the others are all doing well & good luck with the next litter, hope you love these pictures of her on another new bed & fluffy blanket she's so spoilt... :-)


Love Rosie x


Hughie - "a tinker and full of vim" as grandma would say


We adore him, although he can be a a bit of a challenge and keeps you on your toes.


My younger son Hal and his girlfriend Chloe describe him as a "legend" because he is so affectionate, curious and clever, whilst Tor calls him Hughie the Harrier jump jet, because of his  leaping abilities and liking for high speed elevation.

 

Hughie does five foot leaps, to land on top of  kitchen cupboards, doors and shower rails and has the agility to land safely wherever he chooses.


He jumps into our arms. onto our backs and peers in the mirror from my shoulder whilst I brush my teeth and put on make up.  I am only 5ft 4” but Tor is 6ft 3”, which does not deter Hughie.


Another anecdote you might find funny is when I was suited booted, hair washed and styled, sweet smelling and late for work.  Hughie's piteous cries from out integral garage stopped me leaving and I followed him around the garage repositioning a heavy wooden ladder and braving cobwebs to try to rescue him from the open rafters.  Thank goodness I am not afraid of spiders or creepy crawlies.

 

After about 10 minutes of him pretending to be unable to get down and me holding my arms above my head to catch  he athletically leapt onto a storage cabinet and descended in style leaving me to clamber down the ladder, looking dishevelled but mightily pleased that he was safe.  


Best wishes

 

Deirdre and family


Noodle (aka Aimee) & Slinky (aka Beau) Update


Noodle is going from strength to strength. She has really changed over the past couple of weeks. A lot more daring and very vocal! Her markings are stunning. Neighbours come and stand at the windows when she is sitting on the sills so they can admire her. She is fabulous. Much faster than Slinky.


Here's the lovely Mr. Slink. He rolls on his back looking at you with his huge green eyes and he melts you. He is simply gorgeous. There is no room at all in this cabinet ... And quite how he slinks in, turns around and settles in this position is a mystery. It's warm and we guess he feels safe!


Here he is as calm as ever. Beautiful silver stripes. And also, Slink in thoughtful mode...


Love


Kim & Glenn xx

Hughie & Sakura (aka Desiree) Update


Hughie has done great since his op, Sakura got her stitches out on Saturday and was a wee darling getting them out she was so brave I held her in my arms and she never flinched good girl she is, they are both so good esp at night, you tell them night night babies bed time and they run in the dining room and do not make a sound...


This is a photo of them both with Don ...smiles all round!


Rosie x


*********************


Rosie Update


She has settled in very well and is very much part of the family, eating well, sleeping well and has the energy of a small tornado.  Despite all the expensive toys she has her favourite is a paper ball which she runs after and bats under the furniture; she will even bring it back to you when it is thrown!


She loves stalking and will appear behind your head after doing a mammoth leap from the other chair, another favourite is running up your legs as she has discovered jeans make an excellent climbing pole


Rosie loves to snuggle up under your chin which she will give an occasional wash!  She purrs happily a noise to outdo next doors lawnmower, we cannot imagine a home without Rosie now as it would be far too quiet.

THE JUBILEE LITTER

Milo (aka Geezer) & Gio (aka Ronnie) Update


Milo and Gio are doing well and yes they have grown a bit since you saw them last and a bit heavier too!


They are developing their own personalities now with Gio being the brave one, in certain situations and Milo being the slow and cautious one.


They do seem to enjoy jumping up onto tables counters etc. and especially love it when the living room is transformed into a race track by rearranging of the cushions into small houses so they can hide from one another, then jump and have a tumble before shooting through the house at 100 mph. Another trick of theirs, especially Gio’s is to lay in wait they will jump up at you and you have to catch them!


They both have healthy appetites and do like cheese and cat nibbles. They will always come running for a shacking bag of nibbles if we can’t find them. Gio weighs in at 3.5kg and Milo at 3.2kg . They are also having their adult teeth showing through so they are into chewing things. Not furniture though.


They sleep with me at night on my bed then Gio wanders among the rooms and settles where he wants whilst Milo gets under the covers and purrs away until Gio wants to play! They do however follow me everywhere I go even to the little boys room and the shower room! I must be the surrogate father!


They have also discovered the warmth of the fire and now every night are curled up or stretched out in front of it. Till about 11pm then they wake up and its play time.


They have definitely become part of the family and cannot imagine anything different now.


Even now as I type this they are in front of me by the fire doing their yoga poses…


They are loved by all the family and friends that visit although they are a little cautious a first, which is a good thing. Then they will go up to people and if they really like them bite their ankles. I think they have a foot fetish…

Duchess (aka Lilibet) Update


Hi Sharon and Kevin,


How are you? Just an update on Duchess. We have included some pictures. Hope you like them.


Duchess is doing very well. She is very vocal and likes lots of attention! She is a little diva. She continues to be very playful and her favourite toy of the moment is a little pink bird. When we throw it for her she brings it back to us!!


She is very clever! She is still enjoying her food and water a lot. Over the last couple of weeks she is beginning to get less excitable and is beginning to really enjoy her cuddles. Her and Maj are getting on well. They still fight but I think it is more play fighting now. They do not hiss or growl anymore so that is a definite improvement!


I think Duchess likes to wind up Maj as Maj will be happily sitting down and Duchess will go up to her and tap/bite her to provoke a reaction! Maj is very fond of grooming Duchess as well which is very cute to watch. We have a ceiling cat tree and Duchess enjoys climbing up to the top- she is very adventurous!


We hope to get Duchess neutered in the next month.


Kind regards,

Amelia and Matt xx



*********************


Pablo (aka Bilee) Update


Well, Pablo or Mr P as we sometimes call him.... Oh my word we love him to bits. We think we may have the most mischievous cat in the whole of England! The things he has got up to... I cannot take my eyes off him for a second.


He has made us laugh so much. He became obsessed with washing up sponges in fact any sponge and kept stealing them. He even found the bathroom one I had hidden and stole a piece of sponge out of Albie’s Halloween mask. We gave up in the end and got him his own. My son has taught him to play ‘fetch’ with it. We have to throw it up in the air, he catches it, bats it around the room, picks it up between his teeth and brings it back, drops it at our feet and we go through this about 20 times! If he wants to play he will find his sponge and put it on top of your shoe.


We have to be so careful with food as he is a real scavenger. Cheese sandwiches are his favourite forbidden item to try and steal... He is also determined to get outside and has escaped briefly, twice. We have to operate a two door system now, it’s like being in a submarine!


The first photo is from when he escaped and fell in a puddle. The second is from when I turned my back after emptying the dishwasher...


He has several adoring fans who visit regularly and he absolutely basks in all the attention. He has stopped climbing up legs now which we are quite relieved about as we were all covered in scratches.


Off to the vets now to pick the mischievous one up.

THE STRICTLY LITTER

Harley (aka Anton) Update


Just a quick email to let you know how Harley is getting on. He has settled in so well, he doesn't mind the dog anymore, he jumps on the other cats, he even goes as far as jumping in their beds when they are asleep, he is such a menace.


He loves hiding under things like pillows and clothes, and he has a habit of sleeping under the covers in bed with my mum and nibbles her when it's time to get up.


He is a dare devil, he runs, jumps and attacks anything! But all in all he definitely fits in! We love him.


Here's a few pictures of him, we apologise if they are blurred, he is like lightening, there is one where he is on my mums flowered bed and one where he is on my shoulder, they are from the day we got him, the rest are either from today or a few days ago.


Love Leanne, Jackie and family.

Beau (aka Aliona) Update


Hiya, Beau is fab!


She is very talkative and has to be whereever I am!


She has settled in brilliant with the other cats and our two little Shih Tzus. She loves to play and the house is covered in toys and paper balls, she loved cuddles and kisses and she has been so good with her food and using her tray. Can you tell I am besotted lol she is my baby!

THE LOVED ONES LITTER

Joan (aka Belle) & Bette (aka Laura) Update


The girls are doing great, I am so very happy I decided to adopt them, they bring love, joy and fun into my home.


They have quit different personalities, but both get on very well and do not fight often. Its usually Bette who starts such fights, if she feels she is not getting enough attention. She loves big cuddles but on her terms. Joan is always up for a love in.


They seem happy with full access to all rooms, except my bedroom at night (mostly) since Joan likes to get me up too early for breakfast, by pushing her head under my chin and purring with gusto. She likes her food, and much of mine if she can get to it (not encouraged). Bette eats well but only gets excited about treats, the whiskers type, when she runs in circles with excitement.


Only one accident so far, siding across my desk and knocking papers and the pot plant everywhere. But no real damage. They are not too friendly with strangers, although they do not run off and hide as when they where younger, they just watch and sniff.


It's a bit selfish of me but it feels nice they only make a fuss of me. Makes me feel special to them, although it may be tinged with cupboard love; their singular affections alway make me feel happy.

Harry is the most fantastic boy we have ever had. He is adorable, cute, loving, handsome, gentle natured, playful…I could go on forever.


Charlie and I are over the moon, our daughter and grand-children brought him lots of toys, they think he is fantastic. They played with him for ages yesterday and today he has been very sleepy; having said that he is running around like a loony at the moment! Lol.

THE PETER PAN LITTER

Terry Update - 20th January 2017


Hi Sharon & Kevin,


Hope you are both well and had a good christmas and new year, its been and gone so quick!

Terry's had lots of new toys from santa he's been very spoilt. He loves it when Jon makes a den for him out of the sofa cushions so santa brought him his very own den - a pop up tent! Haha! He loves it :)


We have him booked in on monday at the vets to be neutered. Bless him he has no idea whats coming his way.


I've attached some pictures for you :)


Love Charlotte & Jonathan xx


Terry Update - 13th November 2016


Hi Sharon & Kevin,


Hope you are both well


Terry is getting much bigger now he's growing into a very handsome cat! He has settled in with us really well, he is still enjoying his Nutriment raw food.


Terry had his check up at the vets yesterday, he is very popular there with the staff they all say he's a cutie!


Good news to see on your facebook page that the latest kittens have all found homes; I can't believe it's almost been 2 months see we collected Terry, it goes too quick!


Love Charlotte & Jonathan xx


Terry Update - 7th October 2016


Hi Sharon and Kevin


Terry has settled in right at home! 😊 He is a lovely little character always making us smile. He has been getting lots of fuss and cuddles! He loves playing with his toys, and you were right a simple toy to keep a cat entertained is a shoe lace he loves it! He is so loving and affectionate, he was licking Jonathans' face the other day (wether he was trying to tell him he needed a wash haha), and he likes to lick my hand and nibble on my fingers lol. He's been enjoying sitting on the window sill and watching the birds, he also likes it when we have the washing machine on he will just sit there and watch it.


He likes to sleep in a certain spot on my pillow and he'll stay there all night until we get up the next morning.


He has been really good with his litter trays he started using them straight away, not had any accidents so far. He really enjoys the natural instinct food, he eats it so quickly as soon as I put it out for him lol.

Pamuk Update - 16th January 2017


Dear Sharon and Kevin,


It feels like it has been ages since I last contacted you and a lot has happened in that time! I hope that you've had a fantastic start to the new year so far and that everyone in the household is doing well.


Pamuk's recovery is going really well, now. The vets did have to administer her an antibiotic because the swelling was going down at a snail's pace and they didn't want any complications to occur. It's been two weeks since that's happened and her fluff is growing back well and the swelling has gone down completely!


We've been experimenting with dry foods and natural formulas with little preservatives and toppings on her natural food. Pamuk's got quite a healthy appetite, thankfully. She eats pretty much everything we show her and makes it clear if there is something she won't particularly take to.


We had to buy her a new cat bed because she's grown too big for her doughnut bed and the radiator pipes run underneath the spot where her new spot is so she loves spending her nap time there. She's got the best spot in the house!


All in all it has been a wonderful journey with Pamuk so far. She's incredibly social when guests come over and had an amazing time when my friend KAtie came over and we played with her, on and off, for hours.


Best wishes for 2017,


Kardelen Ucar


Pamuk Update - 4th December 2016


Hi Sharon and Kevin


Pamuk has truly been a precious and amazing addition to our home and, as I'm typing this email, she's asleep on my bed for her scheduled afternoon nap. She always seems to fall asleep before bed time so I hate to have to wake her but then she'd miss her lunch if I didn't!


She's eating extremely well and she's quickly approaching 3kg! She's 2.8kg right now and the vet said she was perfectly healthy. Her eyes are healthy, her ears clean and her coat nice and plush. She even said her nose is really clean and we had a good laugh at that! We always clean her up with a cotton pad and she's doing a lot better when it comes to trimming her nails. We give her some treats after every session every three weeks to positively reinforce the behaviour and she's doing better than she was before.


Also, she's finally got some adult teeth through! She's growing so fast and getting to be so beautiful!


Pamuk Update - 18th October 2016


Pamuk has been keeping me entertained and entirely happy with how busy I've been!


She's eating well, using her litter trays and has managed to climb up to the very top of her cat tower! It's by the dining table (it encourages her to use the scratchers instead of going for the wooden furniture) and she perches at the top to watch me eat my breakfast everyday, wondering where hers is!


She went for her first ever vet check up with us yesterday! The vet said she was completely healthy and happy and we were so glad to hear that, knowing she's settled in so well at home.


She's taken to sleeping by my feet when I am working at my desk in my bedroom (there's a little alcove underneath the desk and she loves the privacy it provides) and when she wakes up, she starts pawing at my toes, trying to get my attention and I definitely can't say no!


Thank you so much for everything you've done for us,


Pamuk Update - 7th October 2016


Hi Sharon and Kevin


She's so playful and it's been amazing bonding with her all this time.


I know that, should we ever consider getting another cat, you'll be our first and foremost call. I could not have been more satisfied or pleased with the process and wish you the best with future prospective owners and the health of all of you cats.


On the Saturday that the guests came over she was hiding for about half an hour and then shot out from underneath the sofa to play with the string that I'd given to one of the guests. After that she started sniffing everyone's feet and we took her upstairs to my room where it's a lot quieter and she played for a good hour with the guests and then napped for two before waking up for her supper.


I also need to start brushing her teeth since she isn't eating any dry food that could help clean her teeth. You mentioned that you clean her teeth every other day, right? Once we go to the vet, we'll ask about and buy the Logic toothpaste and get to brushing the little one's teeth.


She's also been using both litter trays, now! She's gotten used to where they are and which one is which and it's quite funny to hear the pellets being kicked around and dug through even though we can't actually see her when she's using them.

Dec aka Rodney Update - 24th March 2017


Hi Sharon and Kevin


Everyone who has met him has fallen in love and can’t believe how friendly and laid back he is. If he is not having cuddles he is leaping around the living romm playing with Kat our chihuahua. He really is adorable and very distracting in a good way when I am working from home.


Dec aka Rodney Update - 11th March 2017


Hi Sharon and Kevin

Hope you are both well. Thought I'd sent you a quick update on Dec. He has settled in amazingly well. I've never known a kitten like it! He's soooo laid back and has taken everything in his stride! Him and Kat (my chihuahua) are best friends already! They tear around the house chasing each other! Joey isn't quite sure and I think needs a little more time. They have a little sniff of each other and Joey watches Dec with a beady eye. I'm sure they will be friends in the coming weeks. Decs eating and drinking well and not one toilet accident! He really does have an amazing character doesn't he! He loves a cuddle and can purr for England! His favourite thing at the moment is putting all his soft toys in his water bowl! Which is bizarre as my Havana used to do the same thing! He's currently curled on my shoulder having 40 winks!

Thank you again for letting me have him. He's already a huge part of the family. I will send some pictures over the next week.

Mal aka Jasper Update - 11th March 2017


Hi Sharon and Kevin

We made it. Jasper had a good journey, he spent most of it on Lydia's knee asleep. Indie is not best pleased at the moment!! I'll send you a photo shortly, hopefully of both together... happy.

Love

Cris aka Cuba Update - 11th March 2017


Hi Sharon and Kevin

Just a quick message to let you know we are home and settled. Cuba was fantastic on the way home and had turns with us all. Chloe says it is better than Christmas and Ellie-Mai said he is had best friend. He has already hissed at the dogs and put them in their place! They hadn't actually done anything wrong but he obviously thought he would get in first. Thank you so much for allowing us to have him.

Anna, James, Ieuan, Chloe and Ellie-Mai


Toby aka Ozzy Update - 10th March 2017


Hello Sharon and Kevin,

Toby settled in already with Harry!  They are besties!

Percy Update - 5th October 2017

Hi Sharon and Kevin


Hope you are both keeping well and I'm sure busy with the new kittens.


As you can see Percy is coming on fine,Ursula might not do quantity but she sure does quality!


As you can see Mia and Percy are inseparable, it is so heart lifting to see. He has fitted in from day one, and as we now have 3 cats and one dog it has turned out better than I ever anticipated!.
