Sully Seal Point Siamese
 Sully is a large Seal Point neuter boy who came in about a year ago with his brother.They were both entire boys who had been kept together.They were taken initially to a moggie rescue with the reason that they were fighting (not surprising as they were in the same pen)  The rescue asked for the Trusts help as they were inexperienced with Siamese and the boys were very nervous and not liking being handled.We advised immediate neutering and splitting them into separate pens.  They tried this but found they were attacked and severely bitten when then trying get them to their vet.They rang for Niki for further help and she agreed to take them on directly from the vet.After a few weeks gentle but firm handling the boys became less frightened and accepted touching.They were not nasty just very scared, so after a couple of months in their own areas they developed into sweet natured boys when their hormones cleared.Alovely home was found for Sully's brother as a single cat with a willing slave.Unfortunately Sully, although by now affectionate with people he knows continues with a stud trait of toileting on his bedding.  He is still continuing this habit no matter what we try and until he changes, or I can find a home where he is on his own in heated facilities with regularly washed bedding (being indoors with access to soft furnishing would not be advisable) he will remain with Niki in his personal quarters.Until then he is therefore up for sponsorship bless him. 05/21

Josie Lilac Point Siamese
Josie came in for rehoming as she was biting.After 2 weeks she stopped biting us but everyone who came to see her for adoption was bitten quite badly so after this happened 4 times we gave up trying to find her a home.She is now indoors with Brigid-she can be a rather unpleasant bossy boots with the other cats and still hasn't stopped biting!


Mai Seal Point Siamese            
Mai came in a year ago with Tritrichomonas Foetus,a parasite that causes dripping diarrhoea.The infection was cleared up quickly but she was left with chronic diarrhoea and it has taken the year to get her well enough to live indoors again. She is living with Brigid  3/14


Loki Black Oriental
Loki was part of a rescue where the cats were left in their home by the owners when they moved out.All the cats left had various old injuries.All of the cats have been successfully homed to loving understanding owners, however Loki had a broken eye socket which changed his eye depth and his tear draining system was damaged.He was also found to be over trusting and appears to have a degree of brain damage.He does not read body language so everyone is his best friend This makes him a very loving boy but he is also vulnerable and does not learn from experience like other cats.He is healthy now, but is staying at Niki's to keep him in a safe environment.He has proved to be very helpful when getting nervous cats to accept human contact.He takes no notice of hissing and growling and just wants to make friends, leading by example under supervision demonstrating that Niki fussing him is enjoyable. This speeds up the process of getting the scared cats to a point when they can trust Niki so helping start their recovery  7/12/17

Rufus Seal Point Siamese                                                                                                                                                                               Rufus is one of the more difficult personalities we gained in 2019. A handsome Seal boy who for reasons unknown hates humans & dislikes other cats. If a human is metres away he runs to attack grabs your leg and sinks his teeth in, if he is in a cat house within claw reach it is even worse. Brigid & I have both tried to bring him round but after some blood loss (ours not his) we decided he will be happier & less dangerous running free at Old Bell House in the garden & surrounding fields, with access to heated sleeping quarters & food (neighbours have been warned not to stroke him) He loves his freedom but still attacks occasionally given the chance! However, after a year of TLC and firm telling-off he is beginning to mellow and will sit by Niki when she is gardening, he appears to like the company. It is still best to freeze when he approaches to sniff and rub round though, as if you move he will swipe quite accurately. He will now allow an occasional stroke but only if he is eating Dreamies. He divides his time between sunbathing (as in the photo) in various spots in the garden and on shed roofs and efficiently catching small rodents which he brings back as presents for the dogs. 11/04/20

Purdy Seal Tortie Point Siamese
Purdy arrived 3 days after we lost Lulu.She is 16 years old and had just lost her mum.Because of her age and also her arthritis she will be spending the rest of her time with Brigid.She is very quiet and although she purrs I have yet to hear her speak!She also doesn't seem to jump though I am not sure if this is because she can't or she prefers being lifted up. 10/10/20
