Cat of the Week – Louie


Have you met our Louie? He is a special boy, and likes to play commandos! He will often be laying low under covers, then you call his name, and he will pop out like a periscope! Its really all an act, he is quite affectionate once he is comfortable, and definitely smoochy! Having a white nose, Louie would need to be indoors only, and he will need to be your only cat. You do have to accept that he will be helping you with your work or homework though! He loves being up on our desks as we are working away! Are you the ones to give this special boy a home? Will he be your excuse ‘the cat ate my homework’?

Thanks Alphington PS!

Out of School Hours Club at Alphington Primary School started a Pet Wall and Donation Drive for cat and dog toys/food. We were donated a wonderful hamper of items by their representative Tanya.


Thank for thinking of us Alphington PS! You have made our cats and kittens very happy!


In Memory of ‘Josie’

I wanted to tell you about our beloved and much-missed Josie, who was adopted from CPS back in 2001. Josie was the most precious girl, so affectionate and loving. She lived with me through all kinds of upheavals and always stayed by my side. She loved to burrow under the covers and sleep against my tummy. When my daughter was born, Josie became a very affectionate nanny, always coming for a cuddle and to listen to the bedtime story at the end of the day. At the age of approximately 15, it was time for her to say goodbye to us. We miss her very much, but will always keep her close to our hearts. Thank you for all the work you do. I would urge anyone to adopt a cat in need of a home – they can enrich our lives in the most profound ways.
