Stringer Bell is a medical mystery who has defied death more than once. Having been hit by a car at 1yo and then bitten by a snake at 2yo he seemed to be not longed for this earth. But Stringer has defied the odds turning 6 this year. Nowadays living a quiet content life trying to catch one duck that he has declared his enemy.
She is 4 years old and was a rescue. Our baby was a street cat all her life before she met us and now has a forever home filled with love, happiness and cuddles. Nami is a chatty girl who loves nothing more than a big cuddle and a nice meowing conversation with her daddy. This baby girl has the most beautiful green eyes that I truly get lost in. She is my world and has been such an amazing support to me during times of grief and loneliness. I love her to bits and can’t imagine my life without her.
If someone told me, that one day a kitten would choose us, that we would have an instant connection, I wouldn’t have believed it. As the story goes, Chino was trembling and scared the day we met after his rocky start, but bravery brought him out to greet us. Once our paws met, it was love at first sight and we just couldn't leave without him. Today, our baby Chino warms our hearts each morning. His tiny paws pitter patter on the floor boards pouncing around the house like a little lion cub waiting for the kids to wake up
Teddy was adopted during lockdown #2 in Melbourne when I needed a companion. Living on my own, working from home and no social bubble allowed he was just what the doctor ordered. He is a very affectionate and vocal young man. Teddy's coat was so matted he was clipped and had to grow into his feather duster tail. He is unrecognizable now from when he arrived but his gorgeous personality is just the same. Hes a snuggle puss who loves nothing more than to curl up on my knee and purr away.
Tony came from a rough background on the streets and lost his ears to cancer. Yet, he is still one of the most affectionate cats you'll ever meet, has lots of character and an understated chilled out coolness that wins over everyone.
The tremendous twosome from Templestowe Fred and Dennis have a relationship like no other as poor Dennis had a terrible start, his big brother Fred has his back every step of the way. If posing for photos and acting innocent was the name of the game, they would have you hook line and sinker every time. If you don’t believe us.. take a look for yourself
Mango stormed into my life as a boisterous, playful mini ginger cat and has now grown into the big, bold, boss of my house and life. He’s very social and friendly and loves meeting new people. He has made many friends in my neighbourhood, everyone knows his name and I have seen countless passerby’s rubbing his tummy and having their own photo shoot with him. His tail is magnificent! He’s very vocal and not one bit shy!
When I adopted Mags (formally Rebel) I had no idea what I was getting myself into - she is the craziest, most lovable cat I have ever met! She spends the day playing with empty toilet rolls or terrorising her older sister and isn't happy unless sleeping on my face at night.
Sadie is our good luck charm. Born in a stranger’s backyard, and rescued by CPSV, we adopted her at just 10 weeks old. Our connection and love was instant. She is a courageous and inquisitive black cat, but when she stands in the sun you’ll see she has grey and brown fur too. When she first arrived at our home, she sat at the backdoor everyday, yearning for the moment she was fully vaccinated and could venture outside.
We adopted Frankie just before the world changed forever! It was perfect timing for our family because it gave my 2 daughters time to spend playing, cuddling and laughing with Frankie They adore him. He is so affectionate, he seems to know when you are needing a cuddle and he loves a morning cuddle. We have just adopted again this year and introduced Nox to Frankie a little over 2 months ago! Frankie was a little taken back but has realised we have enough love to go around they spend their days sleeping and playing together.
Biscuit has brought a lot of fun and excitement to our family, which we have needed during the Melbourne lockdowns. He is a fun-loving kitten who just wants to experience joy when chasing a piece of ice that falls from the freezer. He's a handful but we wouldn't have it any other way! We couldn't imagine our life now without Biscuit; even our resident feline, Mia, is warming up to him (slowly). Biscuit acts like he has nine lives and is living of them to the fullest!
Sunny makes us laugh - always. He needs to know everything that is going on and must be the centre of attention. He greets me with such excitement, often jumping on my shoulders just to be closer to me. Sunny has a strange fascination for tinsel Christmas decorations and plays ‘fetch’ with them till the thrower gets bored. He loves a good chat and follows me all over the house. He has brought us such joy and brightened our lives.
