Please people be responsible for your pets – don’t adopt if you can’t afford all the vet costs, kennelling when away , time and love…
A big thank you to everyone who has opened their doors and hearts to my cats this year –over 280 of you! This is Persians, non-Persians, moggy kittens, etc…
Lots of purrs
Microchipping and adding an ID tag to your cat
It’s heartbreaking: Every year, millions of cats and dogs become lost in South Africa. Many are beloved pets who never make it home. In fact, research shows that only 10 to 20% of lost dogs and a mere 5% of lost cats are ever reunited with their families. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Taking the simple steps of microchipping and adding an ID tag to your pet can help improve these tragic odds. “It is as small as a grain of rice, but a microchip could mean the difference between life and death for your beloved companion,”
Visit your veterinarian and request a microchip. And be sure all of your animal companions—even indoor-only pets—wear a collar with an ID tag. After all, your pet is depending on you.

In praise of tabbies
In the seemingly mad rush to acquire “breed” cats and dogs or “status” animals often the humble tabby or rescue breed dog is often overlooked & I think the public really miss out. In 25 years of rescue I don’t ever recall “problems” health wise or behaviour wise with any tabbies.
If you don’t want timidity, aggression, terror of small kids then get yourself a tabby. They are usually robust, minimal maintenance and are super chilled, good with everyone and everything – a real all-rounder with the most loving and appreciative natures.
