Elsa was probably about 4 weeks old when she was found, and she wasn’t just alone, she was also blind. In fact, she didn’t seem to have eyes at all, but tiny pink holes where her eyes should have been. She was in terrible shape – she had lice,
We adopted Tilly after our cat Murphy disappeared, after about two years we thought it time so we found Tilly. When we first met her she was shy, now she struts around the house like she owns it and will take belly rubs from anyone!
Shortly after moving into my current home in 2013, I discovered a little family of stray cats living down the road. So I started feeding them in the car park of a recently abandoned warehouse a few doors down. Once I got them into a feeding routine, I started the

We adopted Molly and Monty in January 2013. They were in foster care with Linda at that time. They are a beautiful addition to our family.
We have two girls and Molly and Monty have taken to owning one of the girls each and continue to have them wrapped around their little finger. It has been fascinating to see Molly and Monty both develop their own unique personalities.
