We felt the urge to fill the void, so after some looking for cats and kittens at various places, we settled for “Silver”, a few months old kitten. Her full name given to her is “Silver Shadow”.
We then heard about an adult cat that was dropped off at our local vet Dr. Bob (Now Vets North). The cat was a stray and had been there for a few months without anybody claiming or wanting her. We felt so sorry for the cat that we decided to have a look at her and – of course – subsequently adopt her. The two of them settled in quite well and get along well too – which was our biggest concern. So Stray was renamed into Cheetah.
Cheetah however loved to wonder around the neighbourhood and unfortunately was run over by a car on Taylor Road in October 2017.
Cheetah was a very special character, never too social but always around somewhere. Loved to lay between Jolans cuddly toys in her bed and never managed to properly eat out of the bowl without pushing it around the place. She will be missed.
Naughty cat has become very friendly, attached and cuddly. His favourite food is food 🙂 . When he’s around, the bowl is always empty.
Ziggy had an accident in February 2019 when she was hit by a car. The doctor had to remove her femur head that attached the hind leg to the hip – she’s all fine again but can do some amazing things with her once injured leg.
Moonshine is a pretty cruisy guy that loves hanging out on the couch in the most entertaining positions. Also loves food.
Latest blog posts featuring our cats
It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.
The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.
After being rather busy over the last week before Christmas with a film crew on site and the typical “everything needs to be finished by Christmas” work frantic, we are now all truly in holiday mode.
All at Pukeatua Farmstay wishing you a lovely and relaxed time and a Happy New 2021. May it bring prosperity and happiness.
