Tamara now Seren

You knew Seren as Tamara and now that she has firmly established herself with us I thought you'd like to know how she is doing.

She is such a lovely cat, very gentle and calm, although she does have her moments when she scampers up and down the stairs at a rate of knots. She was a little wary of us when we first brought her home, but still gave us lots of welcoming trills when we came home from work and head-butts for Huw in the evening.

The wariness has nearly gone now and she likes to be near us in one way or another. On the footstool by the radiator or the coffee table if we're in the sitting room; on the bed or windowsill if we're doing stuff upstairs. Windowsills are a real favourite! She is not a lapcat and I'm not sure she will ever be, but that's fine, she is fab and suits us completely. Thank you for such a lovely little girl.

I've attached a couple of photos for you to see how well she has settled in and made herself a real part of our family.

Winnie & Rupert

Just thought I would let you know that both kittens have settled in really well and are giving us a run for our money lol.
I have attached a few pictures and hopefully a video, the one with the Christmas tree you have to look really  close to see Winnie 3/4 of the way up!!!  


Hello everyone! Just a quick update on Jessie (now Cleo). She’s now been with us for almost two months and has definitely made her mark; our house is filled with cat toys and treats, and her grandparents even bought her a special pussy cat calendar for the countdown to Christmas! She’s a very loving cat who will usually sit with me at my desk when I work from home. She has become really attached to us – she won’t even go out into the garden unless we stand by the door nearby watching her! She’s still a kitten at heart and we have had a few mishaps with Christmas decorations (even managed to chew through fairy light cables – didn’t get electrocuted thankfully!) but it’s impossible to be annoyed with her for long as she is so cute! We try to keep her entertained as much as possible, the squeaking mouse toys attached to wands being her favourite. We love our lucky black cat very much and couldn't imagine being without her now! Thank you to all at Llys Nini for helping to match us with Cleo and merry Christmas!

Norbert & Gunther

Hello.  Just a quick note to let you know how Norbert & Gunther are getting on.  They are now called Darwin (black & white) and Rigby.  They have settled in quickly.  Darwin has quickly designated himself Grand Supreme Ruler of the House and we are his subjects.  Rigby is quietly mischievous and extremely loving.  They have both grown to twice the size of when we adopted them just 2 months ago.  Both cats get on very well with our Boxer bitch, Miley, and all 3 often cwtch up together on the dog bed. (Despite having a huge cat tree in the room!) Thank you for rehoming them with us, we couldn’t imagine being without them.


Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update about Basil (now called Finnegan) who we adopted as a kitten from you not long ago.
He's settled in with us in no time, exploring the house and then having a cuddle.   He still loves exploring everything and occasionally gets himself into sticky situations, managing to get stuck in places he shouldn't be!  He's a lovely boy and plays very gently with our baby, making him laugh lots!  He's very affectionate and cuddly too, and is one happy little kitten. 

Thank you all so much for our lovely little boy

Hi All Colin has settled into his new home really well it’s been just over a week now and he is a really happy boy!
He is relaxed, no swiping at anyone -great with the dogs (he even gives them kisses) and no problems with the chickens. Although it’s early days in his new home he happily sits on the patio with the dogs and chickens around him and he enjoys a couple of checks around the garden perimeter each day.

He is such a loving and friendly cat we are all thrilled to have him as a new member of our house, thank-you to all the staff and volunteers who looked after him so well and helped him to find a home in which he can be happy.

Phil (or Phillip when he’s naughty) has been with us now for two months after being in Llys Nini for nearly a year. Phil has settled in nicely and we can’t believe how different he is from the first few times we met him in the cattery.  On Bringing him home, like recommended we prepared a nice quiet room for him to explore with plenty of food and water so he could stay in for the first few days, well Phil was having none of that and was off exploring  the house as soon as he could! We had no major problems apart from Phil getting a bit excited and shredding the bins to bits on his first night! As you said, Phil isn’t the cwtchiest of cats, but he adores our company. At every opportunity he’s climbing on our laps or sneaking on to our bed at night, he enjoys a good cuddle under his chin, or on his ears but hates having his tummy tickled and will soon tell you with his playful paws when he’s had enough! We bought lots of toys for Phil and his favorite is a small rattle ball on a string of elastic, he really does get excited over it!! Phil has started going out now, and loves exploring the bushes and trees out in the front, and even bought us back a live mouse as a present for us this morning! Phil’s favourite thing to do outside is sunbathe on a bit of grass out the front and watch the world go by, and lap up all the attention he gets from the passers by! A few weeks ago Phil had to spend a day in the vets as result of a mild bladder infection, but after a injection of antibiotics and a few weeks of special food, he’s now back to his cheeky self. All in all its like Phil has been with us for years and he really has made himself at home and makes us smile every day, so thank you Llys Nini for letting him come home to us, he’s a changed boy…no more Grumpy Phil for us!

Adopted on Oct 25, 2012 
Here is a picture of Harry who is five years old and came to live with us last week; he has settled in very well and is getting to know his new home - we are yet to let him explore the garden.


Just an update on Taylor (Bengal ) who has now been with us since June. Taylor has settled in very well and enjoys the outdoors. Photograph shows her investigating one of the trees in our garden, birds using peanut feeder attract her attention. Fortunately no accidents to date.
Best Regards

Olivia now Annabella

Hey! We adopted Olivia from you over 2 months ago! Just an update to show you how well she's getting on! We've renamed her Annabella and she's spoiled rotten! And very demanding! Thank you guys so much!

Tiger Lily

It's now just over three months since Tiger Lily joined our household and she very quickly made sure that we knew that she is the Boss! She enjoys sleeping in her basket and playing in the garden - and beyond. She loves playing with her toy mouse (and she has already brought us a real one, plus a couple of frogs that were quickly re-homed into next door's garden). She is so playful and inquisitive, and she loves curling up on an available knee and purring when she is petted. She has a lovely temperament and she has totally converted the man of the household into a cat person - to the amazement, and amusement, of the rest of the family. Thank you so much for letting us adopt her.

Jessie J

This is Jessie J who we adopted a few months ago.  She's absolutely adorable.  The first picture is her first day outside and she has just
discovered the hole in the fence that leads to the fields at the back, .  It did not take her long to go through and now she regularly
brings me prezzies of voles, shrews and mice, not a rat yet though thank goodness.  Her favourite place to snuggle and snooze is my bed. 
The third picture just shows what a laid back cat she is, she loves her tummy gently rubbed and to be made a fuss of.And the last is a
proper pose.  She's such a cool cat we all love her to bits.


 Amber was one of our longest stay cats
but has now found her new loving home with Rachel!
Hey just thought I'd let everyone know that Amber is doing great. She's settled right in. She's probably believe it or not one of the most affectionate cats I've ever come across, she has also found a real friend in our other cat lucifer and loves to run riots around the house with him. Thank you so much for giving us such an amazing cat. 

Jepson now Chico

In July we adopted a lovely cat called Jepson from you and you asked us to let you know how he is getting on. We have changed his name to Chico (Spanish for" little boy" but with overtones of a lovable naughtiness).  As you can see from the pictures he has settled in really well and although he is still very lively, he has calmed down a lot.  The pictures are:
Relax: Chico getting used to us and settling in.
Harness: We wanted him to get used to the outdoors quite quickly so we trained him with a harness which he took to really well.
Freedom: At last we felt confident that he could roam freely in the garden alone.
Wall:  Exploring further afield. He loves to sit on this wall and watch what is happening in the fields behind. He also plays in them.
Family: Nia's whole family came to stay recently - 4 teenagers and 6 adults. Chico was superb and got on well with everyone.  He loves to be involved in everything, including putting up the tent!
Thank you very much for all your hard work. We are delighted with Chico and love him to bits!
Best wishes,
Shaun, Nia and Chico.

Bonnie now Lola

We adopted Bonnie 'the bumble bee' (now Lola) the beginning of June and she is getting on really well. When we brought her home she purred from the second she came through the door! We kept her in the kitchen for the first day so she could get used to her new home and gradually introduced her to the other rooms in the house which she enjoyed exploring.  She is the perfect little kitten who enjoys cuddles and lots of playing with her toys. She carries her favourite toy around the house in her mouth like a dog! Lola also loves playing out in the garden chasing the spiders, she already has a new cat friend who lives across the road that she will be playing with when she's old enough to go out properly. Thank you Llys Nini for letting us adopt such a cute little cat :)

Hi! I just wanted to send you a quick email to fill you in on the gorgeous cat we adopted from you. At the beginning of 2006 we came to you, searching for a new little kitten to join our family. Dad rang you up and was told that you had two kittens left from a litter and straight away we paid you a visit! The kittens were called Teddy and Toby, both were cute little balls of ginger fluff. We fell in love with Teddy and straight away we knew he was for us!! His new name is now Smudge, because of his cute, distinctive black smudge on his nose. Six years later, we still love him as much, if not more now. He spends the majority of the day lazing around sleeping and always manages to find a sunny place to cwtch up in (that's when he isn't plaguing for food of course!).
Thank you so much for letting us adopt Smudge!!
Lots of love, The Walkers!

Hi there, just a quick update, we recently adopted bob from you approx 2 months ago, he has settled in brilliantly had a few rows with our little pomeranian but they have sorted their differences and our pom knows not to mess with bob they're comical together (all in a good way), we were told to keep him in for 8 weeks more than the normal 6 weeks as he was likly to stray but he is completly opposite never wants to go out, spends 99% of his time basking in the conservatory when it's sunny, lovely cat just spends all of his time chilling, whether it's on the table, in the conservatory or lazing in the sun outside, oh and absolutly loves rolling over and having his tummy scratched. :) :) :)

Hi just a quick up date on our Kitten Kiara . We brought Kiara home on the 7/6/12. It did not take her long to settle into her new home, at first she was a little nervous she hid under our sofa for half hour,but she soon came out and wanted to play with her new toys and with our two children. She has only had one accident behind our t.v and we think that was because she did not like were her litter tray was. Since moving it she has not had any more accidents and is very well litter trained. Kaira has such a lovely temperament. She loves to cuddle and sleep on your lap. She loves to play and follow you every where you go. Kiara loves to sleep and will settle down in a few places, her favourite is on the cupboard behind our sofa. Kiara is still being fed on Whiskas kitten food and biscuits four times a day. She has a very big appetite. We would like to say thank you to all the staff at Llys Nini for letting us adopted Kiara. She is a big part of our family now and is such a lovely kitten and is growing up so fast and has got a very similar temperament to her mum Tiger Lilly, loving her cuddles just as we hoped.

Alex now Oz

We adopted Alex (now Oz) from you at the beginning of the year. He was a very shy, timid kitten who was always looking for a place to hide, like our cupboards. But now he's full of confidence now and enjoys ruling the house.

Just to let you knonw that Harvey is settling in brilliantly! After day 1, we were able to remove the mesh barrier between Harvey's kitchen and middle room and our dog Alfie's area in the living room. Alfie barked, Harvey hissed but they now know about each other and expect to see each other, so things are much better.
Harvey is in to absolutely everything. Wherever we go, he is running alongside. He only had one 'accident' and we think he didn't like the place of the litter tray. As soon as we moved it near to the back door he has been fine ever since.
He just craves attention and is the must loving and funny of cats. He is a real star. Looking forward to the day when he can go and explore the garden.
We will let you know.
Many, many thanks for taking him in and looking after him so well.

Harvey came into the centre via our vets as a PELLET was stuck in his eye!!!
He was on treatment for a while but is now happy and healthy in his new home!!
