Our Feline Family
At Flashback Sales we share our home with 14 cats. We thought you might like to meet them. We have a mixture of rescued kitties and pedigree cats.
A mother cat and her 4 kittens were found abandoned by the canal in our village. The kittens were 4 - 6 weeks old. They were all very poorly so we took them in. And with the help of our local vet, they're all big and bouncing with health. We called mother cat Charlotte
Aneurin (An-ire-in) is the only boy in Charlotte's litter. He's discovered where the cat food pouches are kept and treats it as a help-yourself. He likes to talk a lot
Ffion (Fee-on) is one of Charlotte's daughters. When she was found she had hundreds of fly eggs in her fur on her back, which had they have hatched, would have eaten her alive. She had to have her fur shaved off by the Vet, but it quicky grew back. So, now she's a fab cat
Nerys (N'er-iss) was the most poorly of Charlotte's kittens. She only weighed 125 grams when we got her. She had infected eyes and was anaemic. It took several weeks of eye drops and good food to restore her back to health. She now weighs 4.9 kilos
Sioned (Shone-edd) is one of Charlotte's daughters. She was anaemic and underweight when we started to look after her, but lots of TLC and regular meals got her right.
We found Meridian walking up and down our street looking for a new home as her original family had thrown her out because the lady of the house was expecting a baby.
This poor chap arrived on our doorstep, looking very sad and holding a front paw up. We scooped him up and took him to the vet where he was diagnosed with a dislocated toe. This had to be amputated, and he's been with us ever since.
Mr Bevan is a black oriental shorthair. He's very grand (and knows he is !!)
Mia is the only one of our cats to be a Mum. She's a pedigree Ragdoll.
She had 2 litters of kittens and we kept one of her first litter, who we called Anoushka.
Anoushka is a Ragdoll who lives with her Mum. She looks exactly like her Dad,
who's name is Romeo and he lives next door.
Rex's breed is the largest domestic cat, he's a Maine Coon. He's fully grown now and weighs just over 7.5 kilos, but despite his size, he has the most gentlest of natures - just a big teddy bear.
Electra is mis-marked Maine Coon. As she's a girl cat, she's not as big as Rex but is just as loving. She loves washing the other cats and was a great help to Mia when she was nursing her kittens.
Lady Guinevere and her brother, Leonardo are Devon Rex cats. They are very active and mischief makers. They get into everything and should have been called Mayhem and Chaos. Some say they look like Gremlins, but we think they are fab.
Leonardo is Guinevere's brother. He doesn't have a lot of fur, and so gets cold easily.
When you cuddle him, he feels like a rubber hot water bottle. He's the leader of the 2 troublemakers.
