Rescue Cats


When we took on our rescue cats we didn’t think it’d take them so long to really fit into our lives. I’m happy to report that now they’ve accepted both of us and have really settled now. Floss (black and white) comes for affection and doesn’t seem to be so threatened all the time and Candy (Tabby) enjoys our company so much she rarely leaves our sides and even now sits on us. A big change from the scared threatening feral felines we started with.

Rescue Cats

In march, we decided to adopt two pussy cats from the Southend cats protection league. We were offered plenty of kittens, but we wanted cats with character. These two definitely have already developed character.



Candy has a love of small furry mammals. Mice of all sorts have been brought in as presents. All have been alive. Similarly the wood pigeons have been alive-ish. This will be good when we have an allotment however at present it’s a pain disposing of injured animals and catching/releasing “well” animals



Floss is an expert mice torturer. She also eats most house spiders which is fabulous (I hate spiders)

Floss does not like much affection. Not much in warning signals. You know when she’s annoyed as you get bitten.

As rescue cats go they’re very much part of the family, however they do pay Helen far too much attention and me too little. Unless you count biting in which case I’m over endowed with attention.
