The day Harvey came home with us, he was really excited and naughty, jumping all over all the kitchen units and in and out of cupboards and drawers! He soon settled down but suffered from a really sensitive stomach to begin with. The RSPCA LLYS NINI really helped us with this and suggested some sensitive cat food and gradually adding regular cat food. He is right as rain now! He loves it when I get deliveries in, exploring the boxes and chasing the plastic. Our neighbour’s kids love to play with Harvey in the garden, and Harvey gets on very well with their own cat.
Harvey regularly returns home announcing himself very loudly and jumps up for a cwtch, usually covered in various bits of garden! Harvey chases anything that moves, and he loves pens! If he sees a pen or coathanger on the floor he chases it across the room and jumps up as if it is alive.
We love Harvey very much and we are very glad that we came to Llys Nini to adopt him.

Tess & Yaz

Myself and my partner have now moved to Cardiff and Tessa and Yaz have settled into their new home well, they are sunning themselves in the garden as I type. You may remember Tess had a few behavioural issues and did not like to be touched, it is as though she is a completely different cat now, she is very affectionate and enjoys a cuddle on her terms, she is very confident and complacent and is definitely the boss of the house. Yaz is lovely, very chatty and has a tendency to wander around the house meowing until she finds someone to sit on, she is always purring and does a funny little dance when waiting for food.

Thank you so much for bringing these beautiful cats into our lives. They are a big part of our family and my brother and cousin (who adopted them with us) often come and visit them.

Thank You very much Elinor, Craig for adopting these two ladies!

Rio know known as Brendan (Brenny)

Brendan (Brenny)
Well, firstly I should tell you that he now goes by the name of Brendan, (after the Swans manager of course!) or more commonly Brenny. He also has a number of affectionate nicknames such as Thundersticks, due to the way he thunders up and down the stairs!
He has settled in brilliantly and did from the outset, our resident queen Mabel accepted him with very little fuss or animosity we are happy to report. That is not to say she doesn't let him know when he's overstepped the mark with a little growl or hiss!!
Brendan is a delightful little cat and very easy to fall in love with-we both have hook, line and sinker! He's so affectionate and always comes for a cuddle when we are watching TV or in bed-we often get woken in the early hours by the loudest purr I have ever heard, and he likes to sleep wound around one of our necks which is not always the most comfortable (for us of course-he is in seventh heaven), but endearing none the less.
His latest snoozing spot is on top of the ironing board where he basks in the sun for most of the day, but more often than not he will settle on the nearest available lap (or on top of the fish tank which is not the most popular spot in our eyes for obvious reasons but as you know a cat will do what a cat wants to do!)
We will certainly enter him in the cat competition - handsomest of course, although it is a shame there isn't a dirtiest cat category; he often comes scampering in covered in mud all up his snowy white legs! Mabel by contrast is a fastidiously clean creature and just sits on her blanket looking at the state on him in disgust!
Rio was a semi-feral kitten when he arrived at the centre
& left a better kitten & is now a fab young man in his great new home!
 Being Cheeky!
