We’ve had a lot of cats coming and going here at The Cat Cafe lately. We sent Andrew, Brandy and Gibbs, who had been here for a while, home. We also adopted out a cat who didn’t spend much time here, Ava. During the time they were here, we enjoyed interacting and playing with these guys. So it’s always a bittersweet moment when we send a cat home.
But when we send cats home, we get new cats in. And the five new arrivals are sure to put a lot of smiles on people’s faces. All of these five cats have similar stories. First, caring people took them in as kittens. Veterinarians treated them, and then after a while they found their way to The Rescue House. After various stops, they made their way to The Cat Cafe.
Diva, Jesse, and Monkey all took a long trip to get to us. A kind person found them in Imperial County when they were kittens and took them in. This person raised them to adulthood, and then contacted The Rescue House to see about getting them help to find a home for them. They are all about a year and eight months old.
Diva loves getting pets and attention once she gets to know you. She’s the most reserved of the three but she’s still sociable. She’ll hop into laps of people she likes, and loves to get her purr motor going when she’s happy.
Of the three cats, Jesse likes to talk the most. He’ll let you know when he’s in the mood to play, which is most of the time. And if you don’t listen to his meow and give him the attention he wants, he’ll put his paw on your leg so that you can’t ignore him.
The most active of the group, Monkey chases around virtually any toy you show him. He has quickly become a customer favorite here at The Cat Cafe and probably won’t last long. Make sure you interact with him before he’s adopted!
Our other two cats that just arrived were part of a trap, neuter and return program in El Centro. The veterinarians preparing to neuter them noticed they were sick. And so they spent additional time with people to properly recover. After that happened, the person taking care of them decided to find them a home inside. The Rescue House stepped in, and then they came to The Cat Cafe.
Both Erik and Groucho are young adults, at a little over a year old. And they both have very playful and fun personalities.
You’ll find Erik taking in the scene, relaxing, until he’s ready to play. And then when he plays, you’ll see why the doctors said that the residual scarring in his eyes doesn’t affect his ability to see. He loves to pounce on toys and wands and he’s always looking for things to play with.
Groucho, if you can believe it, is even more brave than his brother. Within two days of arriving here, he managed to climb up to the top of the Eiffel Tower replica. He also managed to figure out how to get down without any help.
The five cats who arrived at The Cat Cafe will definitely put a smile on your face. Come meet them and enjoy spending time with them and the cats who have been here a little longer.
