Hello there. I wanted to make contact with you to tell you about the little cat called Fudge (re-named by me Mrs Tiggywinkle - Tiggy for short) I adopted her in April2009 I was living at 60 Pencaerfenni Park then - I had recently lost my husband and needed someone to love and care for - well Tiggy really fitted the bill - I have moved twice since then - once to Grimsby and the second time to my present home here in Norfolk - each time Tiggys micro-chip details were ammended - but she is a good little cat and never strays far from me. I swear she is my guardian Angel in a cat skin - I ve never known such a loving devoted animal - and I ve had dogs - cats and horses before - she is not a lap cat - it took me ages to be able to touch her - although she was so friendly and wanted to be friends - if I went to scoop her up - well she !d run for it - its taken me about 15 months to be able to pick her up and cuddle her - and I think she puts up with it just to please me - but she is not happy being held - so I respect her wishes. Her favourite time ofday is first thing in the morning - when she is allowed to come on to my bed and indulge in what I call "her morning love in" this involves loud purring n snuggling in to me - licking my face - tapping my face with her paw and gazing at me - if she isnt allowed this ritual in the morning - well her day is not the same. Once she has indulged in this ULTRA affectionate display - she!s back to her normal cool little self - living out her "cat day". She has a lovely big enclosed garden with tree s and bushes and a little pool - also - she is a keen bird watcher and has pigeons obliging her by landing on the grass and allowing her to test out her stalking and pouncing skills - which she is really glad about - as she has had to depend on grass-hoppers and baby frogs up until now . So there we are - two delighted souls - me for finding such a sweet little cat - and Tiggy for finding me (a slightly dotty old lady who she can twist round her paw)

After losing my 16 year old cat, Spider 3 years ago and my 18 year old cat, Peanut on 11th September this year, I realised how much I missed my furry feline around me and decided to have a look at Llys Nini.
We adopted gorgeous Orlando on Friday 15th October 2010 from Llys Nini. It was so hard walking past all the enclosures but when we got to her enclosure she made us stop in our tracks she was so endearing and amusing we had to meet her.
We brought our 4 year old boy with us, and we went in to meet her, ooh, she was a little ''hiss and spit'', very jumpy, if she could'nt see your hand coming. We did not know much about her background, she was abandoned in Swansea and was appx 2 years old so we did not know what she had been through.
Our second visit, she scrammed me on my thumb, I was dubious due to my son and even suggested to my partner, we look for a different cat.
But then I thought about Peanut, she was nearing wild, when I had her, but I won her over, so we decided to go for it.
The lovely staff in the centre even commented that she was a bit lively, I said, I'd already found that out.
She will have been home a week tomorrow, and I swear, you'd think she has been here since birth.
What a beautiful, gentle, calm, laid back cat she is.....nothing like the enclosure, it must have been the circumstances, Evan has had all his mates in to look at her, they stroke her, she loves it. she is going to be one spoilt and loved cat...but I reckon we will get that back from her too.
Llys nini, it was fate, I just awoke that day out of the blue, I wanted another cat.....welcome Orlando.
The pics say it all, the enclosure, chilled on my lap, watching my fish...we just love her :)

Tabatha has got a wonderful nature, very loving and is
such a happy little girl. She loves exploring in the garden and
generally having fun. She settled in very quickly, is still a very
vocal cat and I am so glad she has come into my life. I love sharing
my home with her. Thank you Llys Nini for keeping her safe until I got her home.

Orla moved in on 12/9/2010.
She has settled in well and enjoys 'busy' moments when she runs around
the house and 'chilling' moments on the settee or a person's lap.
Orla has an inquisitive personality. She is so keen to part of what is
happening that she is actually wanting to help me to type this email.
Because Orla was a stray she is not able to go outdoors yet.
Watching the outside world from window sills and not
being out in the action is very hard for Orla.
Thank you RSPCA for looking after Orla until I was able to meet her and take her home.
