Catnap has adopted these seven cats and the cafe is their home.
Bobby is an independent but curious and friendly cat who likes to observe what everyone is doing from afar. Like his sister Gizmo, Bobby has a congenital deficiency in his back legs which makes them look a bit short and stumpy. Although this means he is not very good at jumping, he is great at climbing and loves to run around and chase things. You'll usually find him asleep at the top of one of our towers or basking in the sun on his back. His condition does mean he needs to be an indoor cat but as long as he has lots of space to run around he’s happy!
Gizmo is a friendly girl who loves a good chin scratch! Like her brother Bobby, she was born with a congenital deficiency in her legs with some hip dysplasia so you’ll notice she looks very bow legged from behind! Because of this she is not very good at jumping but she loves to climb and play just like any other cat. She loves meeting new people and giving everyone some good smooches. Her condition means she needs to be an indoor cat but she is very content with that. (Although you will often see her trying to escape into the cafe area!)
Oscar is a very special wee boy. He was born with a neurological condition called cerebellar hypoplasia which affects his fine motor skills and coordination. It also causes intention tremors so he gets pretty shaky when he's trying to focus on things like playing and eating. As well as this, he has an unknown genetic condition which has affected his growth so he's a pretty little kitty. He gives adorable delicate smooches and he loves a good snuggle, either on a warm lap or with his brother Leo. This little cutie will melt your heart!
Leo is extremely energetic and cheeky! He loves to play and you will often see him tearing around the room at high speed or climbing into someone's handbag. He is also a massive food fiend so watch him around your snacks and drinks! He sure does keep us on our toes but once he tires himself out there’s not much that will rouse him! When he’s not being a crazy menace, he is always keen to cuddle up with the other cats on the couch.
Susie is a super cute little kitty with a lovely friendly nature. She’s very smoochy and affectionate, and loves to climb up onto your knee to smooch your face. She adores company and attention, and is always eager for cuddles and pats. She is energetic and playful and once you get her going, it may be awhile before she tires herself out!
Holmes is an absolute star! He’s an affectionate cutie who loves attention and pats. He will often jump up on his back legs for smooches if you hold your hand above him. Full of energy and very playful, he loves making new friends and is always the first one to greet us when we arrive at the cafe each day. He also likes to nibble on fingers affectionately and occasionally even on the nose!
Henry is really quite the charmer! He’s a big sweetie who loves to give adorable head boops and face smooches. Well known for picking a favourite person and sitting on their lap for the whole hour, he’s just as likely to perk up and play like a wee kitten. He’s very relaxed and laid back and is super loving and gentle with our other cats!
