Our Cat House Cats

It is really important to us that the majority of our cats are rescue cats, as there are so many cats needing homes and we feel we can offer a wonderful home to the right ones. We fully endorse the adoption of rescue cats as a great option to people looking for a new family member, and as such we aim to help all local rehoming organisations to promote the cats they have that are ready for adoption, along with promoting information about the rescue centres. Occasionally we may offer cats for rehoming from our venue, if they don't settle in the café environment, and we have helped a few local families rehome their beloved cats when they needed a new home - 19 cats to date!

Introducing our amazing Cat House cats, all 20 of them:

Please note: none of our cats are up for adoption, they are permanent residents at The Cat House.

Lily the Lykoi

Lily is the newest little bean to arrive at The Cat House. She is a sweet, cheeky little Lykoi - also known as a Werewolf cat! Lily was hand reared from 4 weeks of age as her mother rejected her, so she is super human focused and just loves a cuddle or sitting up high on your shoulders to get a good look around. Her hair moults and regrows throughout the year, each time growing back a different shade of black/grey/silver/white, so she will continually change! She has webbed toes and a kink in her tail and seems to wear many hats - we think she is part cat/monkey/rat/bat/meerkat/chihuahua!!!

Tallulah

Tallulah is a pretty little brown moggy with a very loud voice! She was a v small kitten needing focused care so we were happy to have her. She will be making day visits in June, before becoming a permanent resident in July. She is talkative, playful and can hold her own in a group of cats. She has met and bonded with Lily at Sarah's house already so she will have a familiar face to play with when she is old enough to come in.

Pixie

Pixie is a rescue velour coated Donskoy. She is a stunning silver colour and her coat feels like felted wool! She has had 4 homes so far in her short life, so we are aiming to make The Cat House her forever home, full of love. She is super cuddly, opting for the depths of your jumper for optimum warmth, or perhaps curling up by your neck, safe and snug. She is a quietly confident young lady and very friendly with every cat and human she meets, especially if you have cake, so watch out!

Rory

Rory and his sister Mimi were rehomed to us by their owner who realised they needed more time than they could give. They are Persians, and were in need of a good groom, so we got on the case and got them trimmed and tidied by the lovely Rachel from The Cat's Whiskers Grooming. Rory is friendly, funny and easy going and still loves to play with toys, favouring those with feathers on.

Mimi

Mimi the stunning, sultry, silver Persian is Rory's sister. She started out being extremely shy, preferring to come out at night to feed. That slowly changed once she settled in, and now she is always bumbling about keeping an eye on the goings on. She is a gentle girl who is beginning to enjoy human attention, however she only lets a few people stroke her, so you are certainly honoured if you get some Mimi time!

Nellie Dot pearl_edited.jpg

Nellie, Dot & Pearl

These three sisters are bright and clever and cause chaos wherever they go! They are almost identical so wear different colour collars: Nellie is red, Dot is yellow and Pearl is purple. Pearl is the feisty one, Dot is cheeky and persistent and Nellie is the softy with big golden eyes. They are nosey and jump inside any box or bag that appears - they are definitely the adventurers of the group, loving to jump up on your shoulders!

Gretel and Grayson

These sweet siblings were rehomed to us from a local family who had too many cats. They are the sweetest pair, who love gentle strokes and can play all day long! At first Gretel was the observer, a gentle girl who watched the goings on, however she has now transformed-loving attention and playing keenly! Grayson started life as Grace... then we found some little hairy balls...! He  just bowls on into the action, bouncing around causing merriment wherever he goes :-) Oh and he loves his toes being rubbed!

Cats-45_edited.jpg

Stanley Manley

Stan is a beaut! He just loves a bit of rough and tumble - if you hear some craziness going on you can guarantee Stan is involved! He was rehomed to us after his elderly owner realised that Stan needed some friends of his own, as he wasn't very happy living with an older cat who wasn't interested in playing. Needless to say Stan is now the life and soul of the Cat House party! He is also our resident baker and can often be found busily making biscuits in his fav bed by the doors.

Cats-57.jpg

Teddington Bear

Teddy is a hairless Russian Donskoy, similar to a Sphynx but with softer more elegant features. He is like a little dog! He is extremely food and treat orientated - watch out as he will appear from nowhere if you as much as open a packet of crisps! Being hairless his body temperature is 1 degree higher than hairy cats, so he feels hot like a little radiator. He prefers a heated bed in the winter and loves the warmth of the summer. Oh, and he loves licking toes!

boosh_edited_edited.jpg

Babooshka

Babooshka is an adult Siberian Forest Cat. She is a proper chunk! She loves sleeping high up in our cat-tree tops and exploring new spaces. She is easy going and loves a tummy tickle, rolling around on the rugs until someone obliges! Babooshka (aka The Mighty Boosh!) likes to keep an eye on all the others, mothering them and cleaning them at times - and can often be found in a cat pile with 2 or 3 others, snoozing happily in a heap. She is very food focused and is always first to eat at meal times!

Cats-3_edited_edited.jpg

Cleo

Cleo is a Russian Donskoy - a hairless breed originating from colder climates. Her mother was fully hairless, and indeed Cleo may in time lose all her hair, but at birth they are mainly rough coated. Cleo was born in August 2022 so she is still a youngster. Loving, loyal, super-fast on the cat wheel, brave and not fussed by anything, Cleo truly is potty! Oh and climbing curtains from floor to ceiling poses no problem at all!

Gus

Sweet Gus (full name “Augustus Le-Blanc” said in a very English way) arrived in August, hence his name. He is a powerhouse of playfulness that keeps going all day! He charms everyone with those big blue eyes and the tiniest of meows… then pounces on your toes! He also has the nickname 'Trip Hazard' as he super quietly walks up behind you and lays down, or he lays across doorways... so we have to watch our step! Gus is a Flame-point Ragdoll – his orange ears, nose and tail should darken as he gets older.

ROMEO1_edited_edited.jpg

Romeo

Romeo is our stunning European Maine Coon. He isn’t a rescue – Sarah had promised herself a Maine Coon once she had opened the Cat House, and here he is - such a majestic boy! He is very playful and loves carrying little plastic cat springs about in his mouth. Check out his huge feet and long tail – he will be enormous when fully grown in a couple of years! He is a bit of a mummies boy, wanting Sarah to pick him up and carry him about like a baby... problem is he is already 7kg at 12 months old!!

CATS-32.jpg

Khamoon

Khamoon is a young adult Sphynx cat. He was kept as a stud cat in a small room so is enjoying the space and toys available here at The Cat House. He is super friendly and loving and has made friends with all the other cats very easily. Khamoon is a mucky boy - we find his food all over his face and the floor after each meal! He has large eyes and uses them to spot the cosiest lap... but watch out he will snuggle right into your armpit and won't want to move!

plum_edited.jpg

Plum

Plum was a breeding queen who needed a new home after being retired - we were happy to oblige as she is such a sweetie pie! She is a lilac British Shorthair, aged 3, and is a huge bundle of love, enjoying human contact and being v friendly with other cats. We have spotted her playing with the cat toys and it seems catnip has an especially funny effect on her! She can be a bit shy at times, but really loves being outside on the catio playing with the bamboo in the sunshine.

Dave aged 6 months_edited.jpg

Dave - the Geezer!

We found our Dave! We were hoping to find a young ginger male that needed a home, and we did! He has been de-flead, vaccinated and neutered, and is now living with us. Dave is a firm visitor favourite as he is super friendly and a glorious ginger all over. He is so glorious in fact that we are dedicating his birthday (May 22nd) to being National Ginger Dave Day! Dave loves making biscuits with Stan - they seem to have a blossoming bromance, so expect to see plenty of biscuit making leading up to his birthday! 

Previous Cat House cats we have now rehomed:

CATS-6_edited.jpg

Floyd

Floyd is a Chinchilla Persian. He came to live at The Cat House when he was young, and was loving it, however as he got older it became apparent he wasn't enjoying the multi-cat environment anymore, as he was hiding and staying away from interactions. So we found him a wonderful home as the only cat and are happy to report he is now v content and is loved, adored and spoilt rotten by his new family.

OLIVE.jpg

Olive

Sweet Olive came to us from Hallswood Rescue along with Vinnie, and at first she settled in well and was v happy to be with us. However it soon became apparent that she wasn't comfortable being in a large group of cats as she kept herself hidden away. She has now found her forever home with one of our work experience students and has immediately settled in, happy to be in a quieter environment.

Mochi_edited.jpg

Vinnie

Big eyed Vinnie has recently been rehomed to another of our works experience students. He was a very sweet boy, however we realised he needed a home with a safe garden to roam in, as he had previously been used to going outside before he was taken to Hallswood Rescue, so he never quite settled with us as was always wanting to go outside. We are happy to report he is loving his new home in Wymondham and is settling in well :-)

leo.jpg

Leo

Lovely Leo our big cream Persian boy has been rehomed to one of our regular customers. Leo had originally been v shy, hiding all the time and only coming out at night. Then in October we saw a huge improvement in his confidence, however that then became over-confidence and he started trying to be the boss, which the others didn't like. They were unsettled and scared of him, so we decided it was best to find him a cosy indoor home where he could get the cuddles he craved, and be top cat. He is settling well with his new human and loving the one-to-one attention.

Buddy

Big fluffy Buddy was one of our first rescue cats, and whilst he settled in initially, we observed his behaviour to be like that of a caged lion - pacing up and down the catio railings and gazing to the distant trees longingly. So one of our customers adopted him back in October - they were able to offer Buddy four acres of wonderful gardens, trees and wildlife to play in and watch. He has bloomed in his new home and loves climbing the trees. We are super happy that he is finally settled.
