AaliyahShreen’s previously “Fat Cat” was a rescue cat from Battersea Dog and Cats Home, adopted in 2006. She is partial to a treat and will flirt shamelessly until she gets one – Shreen has thankfully been able to train her husband not to give in and Aaliyah’s waistline is now seeing the benefits. She loves affection except for the kind bestowed upon her by Shreen’s young son.  Aaliyah is quite precious by nature and is often referred to as the queen of the house.


DorisDoris the explorer, she’s a hunter by nature and frequently presents Shreen with the catch of the season – frogs, birds, mice and once even a carp! The only thing she likes more than hunting is padding Shreen’s husband’s back while he sleeps.


HoratioBrother to Doris, annoyance to Aaliyah. He is a bit of a cad, he likes to roam the neighbourhood. In the summer he will stay out for days at a time but when he returns he is very affectionate and will often curl up on a lap. Unfortunately he is also prone to the odd fight and at times has returned nursing a war wound or two. In 2013 he decided to take a 3 month holiday and was eventually identified by a vet several miles away – many thanks to his microchip for reuniting him with his very grateful family!


MollyMolly is a recent but very welcome addition to the Bergs household. Along with her brother, Mider, she came to live with us after her owner had to move house and wasn’t allowed cats. She may be a temporary resident or she may be here to stay, either way, she’s a joy to have around and we’re happy to have her! She spends most of her day perched on the back of our chair and will do just about anything for attention.


MiderMolly’s brother, he has also settled nicely into his new home. So nicely in fact, that he frequently feels the need to show his gratitude by bringing in live mice. Having decided to take an early retirement at age 7, Mider now prefers to spend his days curled up in his bed with the occasional field trip into the back garden. He also enjoys driving Amy mad by turning his nose up at any food that she dare put down two days in a row.
