The Crazy Cats
Date of Birth: 1st September 2016
Breeder: Brampets Burmese Cats
Title: Mr Bump
Bert is our resident clumsy cat. He could even trip up his own shadow! It’s not uncommon to see Bert walking along the back of a sofa and then you see him falling off. This is usual for Burmese cats. He makes up for this with his good looks and his sparkling personality!!
Burmese Cats come in a range of colours and our Bert is a very rare Lilac Burmese. We think this makes him look like a teddy bear. He really is just too cute.
Bert loves playing with the other cats, especially Pete and Elvis. If you watch him when he’s playing, he does a very good ‘Thriller’ dance. He would have been great in that video. We are sure that he will want to dress up as that for next Halloween.

Breeder: Rolypoly Ragdolls
Title: Good Girl Gone Bad
Everyone knows the story of Bonnie & Clyde - 2 beautiful people caught up in a world of crime. This is so true with our Ragdolls, Bonnie & Clyde - Brother & Sister.
They are the most beautiful Ragdolls you will ever see. They have the most beautiful eyes, their coats are as soft as silk & their purrs are mesmerising. They love a cuddle, & will happily cuddle up for hours. Then it’s play time. Bonnie and Clyde LOVE their playtime, but can get quite rough with each other. It’s not unusual to see marks where they have clobbered one another. By all accounts – just like their namesakes...
They love being picked up and cuddled.
Bonnie is a little sweetheart & will no doubt melt your heart.

Title: The Fav Bad Boy
Clyde lives up to his name, just as well as Bonnie.
His eyes are mesmerising, his coat so soft & his purr so catching. He is the ultimate Cuddle Machine. Nothing makes Clyde happier than a decent cuddle. He will show his appreciation by purring so loudly, you will feel it in the souls of your feet. As long as you are prepared to cuddle, he will cuddle up to you.
He really is a sook. However, like Bonnie, playtime will come, & look out everyone. Clyde loves his rough & tumble with Bonnie, but also his best friend Verne. Clyde will grow up to be much bigger than Verne, but we are sure they will remain Best Buddies.
Clyde love cuddles, being picked up, any love & affection.

Breeder: Full of Charm Maine Coons
Title: Gentle Giant Love Machine
Breed: Maine Coon
George is a Maine Coon, thought to be the largest Domestic Bred Cat available in Australia. While he is still only young, you can tell from his feet that he is going to be a very big boy!
George is named after the legendary George Jopson, of Wanaka, NZ. Both George’s share the same amazing personality and super friendly demeanour.
Have a close look at our George’s eyes. They are 'odd eyes'. One is Blue, the other Amber. It all adds to his appeal!
George is very laid back, & will get to everything in his own time. He loves to hang out, play, cuddle and smooch. He doesn't go at the same speed as some of the other cats, but when you are going to be as big as him, you don't need to impress anyone.
Date of Birth: 24th January 2016
Breeder: Osiris (V) & Chat d’Or Abyssinian’s
Tom & his half-brother, Jerry, form our Abyssinian Dream Team. Tom is a little quieter than Jerry, but by no means shy. He does prefer more conventional sleeping arrangements & can often be found on a comfy bed next to a light. We think he likes to see who's coming.
Tom is a little cuddlier than Jerry, & will snuggle for a bit longer. Don't be surprised if he comes rubbing up to you, or he might try to climb up you for a pat or cuddle.
These boys need to be roaming & getting up to mischief. They are most fun showing off their talents, climbing walls on their UrbanPhur furniture & simply running a muck.
Both Tom & Jerry like to lick people & can give a wee nibble, so don't be alarmed, it's just a love bite.
Date of Birth: 25th January 2016
Breeder: Osiris (V) & Chat d’Or Abyssinian’s
Jerry & his half-brother, Tom, graduated from the Cat Circus at just 12 weeks old.
They can do all sorts of tricks & get up to mischief like you wouldn’t believe. If we can’t find Jerry, we look on top of Curtain Rails, book shelves or pictures. He really can get anywhere.
Jerry loves to watch someone doing something interesting, so that he can watch & help. He is super friendly, but very hungry. He will purr round your feet looking for a little bit of food. Please don’t feed him any though – or he won’t be able to reach his favourite hiding places.
Tom & Jerry like to lick people, & can give a wee nibble, so don't be alarmed, it's just a love bite.

Big Jimmy belongs to Neil's Brother's neighbour (his real name is O’Malley – from Aristocrats). He is affectionate, demanding, knows what he likes & how to treat a human to get the best out of them.
Our little Jimmy has managed to copy this to the letter. He can be a bit of a bully to the other cats, he goes where he wants & does whatever he fancies. He is a proper ‘Jimmy’ cat. He is the proud owner of the second loudest meow, & loves a good snuggle. Careful if you have bare feet too – Jimmy loves a wee pounce on them!

Title: Stoor Hobbit
Breed: Devon Rex
Also known as ‘Pommy Pete’ because of his English heritage, Pete is one of our newest residents.
Pete is a Devon Rex, which is almost a cross between a Hairless Cat, and a normal cat! Pete feels really soft and velvety and is like a little furness. He’s always really warm.
Pete loves to play and is also a pretty good runner on the big wheel. He loves to join in with the other cats when they are on the wheel, but often runs in the wrong direction. We love Petes unique look. We don’t let him hear, but we sometimes call him Gollum. This is obviously in love though as he is such an amazingly friendly little cat. We think he’s the real definition of cute – “attractive in an endearing way”!

Title: Cutie Pie
Sally is a beautiful Persian, which gives her a unique look. Some people thinks she looks old and grumpy. However, she is a Tomboy and always running around having fun.
The Persian is an old breed. To those who love this elegant cat, it will come as no surprise that the long-haired beauty originated in the cradle of civilization: Mesopotamia, which was later known as Persia and is now modern-day Iran. The breed’s long hair was probably the result of a natural mutation, and its striking appearance attracted the attention of 17th-century Italian nobleman and world traveler Pietro Della Valle, who is credited with bringing the first long-haired cats to Europe in 1626. At that time, the cats had shiny, silky gray fur, but thanks to selective breeding Persians are now found in a kaleidoscope of colors.
The dignified and docile Persian is known for being quiet and sweet. Sally can enjoy sitting on a lap—surely her rightful place— and being petted by those who are discerning enough to recognize her superior qualities, and playing house with kind children who will gently comb her hair, play gently with her, then serve her tea at their parties. Persians are affectionate but discriminating. They reserve their attention for those visitors whom they feel they can trust.
Date of Birth: 25th April 2017
Title: Rug Warmer
Little Harry is a beautiful long haired Birman Munchkin. This means he has the colouring and coat of a Birman, but also having the little Munchkin Legs.
The Munchkin’s short legs are caused by an autosomal dominant gene, which causes the long bones in a cat's legs to grow shorter. This doesn’t hurt, or bother, Harry. He sits like a Meerkat at times to make sure he has a ‘cats eye view’ of the area.
As you will see, Harry will still run around, jump and have fun with the rest of the cats. He can easily get up to the top shelves – it just takes him a few more bounces.
Please be careful if you pick Harry up, his shorter legs means he has a little less suspension than the big cats. Please sit down with him – he loves the cuddles and you will get lost in those big, beautiful blue eyes.

Title: Silly Tilly
I am Siamese if you please
I am Siamese if you don't please
I am from a residence of Siam
There is no finer cat than I am
Si and Am from Lady and the Tramp may be the most famous Siamese, but our Chocolate Point Siamese, Tilly is just as elegant. She carries herself in a regal way and knows that she a Princess of Siam.
However, she does have a Tomboy streak through her. This means you will see her wrestling and play chase with the other cats.
Tilly can be very talkative and opinionated. She will tell you exactly what she think, in a loud, raspy voice, and she will expect you to pay attention and act on her advice. Siamese cats are extremely fond of their people. You will see Tilly being “helpful” and may follow you around and supervise your every move.
Date of Birth: 9th September 2017
Title: King of the Crazy Cats
Khan is an spectacular Bengal.
His full name is Shere Khan of the Crazy Cats! Shere meaning "Tiger" and Khan meaning "King", so he is our King of the Crazy Cats - well he like to think so!
With his distinctive spotted coat and large size, Khan looks like a wild cat on the prowl. Although one of his ancestors is the small, wild Asian leopard cat, he’s a domestic cat through and through. Bengals take their name from the Asian Leopard cat’s scientific name, Felis Bengalensis. They are a cross between an Domestic Shorthair & a Asian Leopard cat — which in the 1950s to 1960s could be purchased in pet shops.
Khan is a highly active and intelligent cat, this makes him fun to play with, but he can sometimes be challenging! He is confident, talkative and friendly. He is always alert, not much escapes this little fella.
He likes to play games, including fetch, and he’s a whiz at learning tricks. His nimble paws are almost as good as hands, and it’s a good thing he doesn’t have opposable thumbs or he would probably rule the world.
Khan doesn't like being picked up, he prefers to roam his savannah and play with his subjects (that's you!)

Title: Prince Bluey
Breed: Scottish Fold X Domestic
Hamish is our wonderful Ginger, Scottish Fold X Domestic.
Scottish Folds occur by a natural genetic mutation that occurs unexpectedly in an otherwise ordinary cat. We can trace his heritage back to Susie, a white cat with unusual folded ears who earned her keep as a mouser in a barn in Scotland’s Tayside region. Susie might have lived her life in obscurity, had she not been noticed in 1961 by a shepherd named William Ross, who had an interest in cats. When Susie had kittens with a local tom cat, Ross acquired one of them, a female he named Snooks. In the natural way of things, Snooks had kittens, one male was bred to a British Shorthair. Thus began the development of what were first known as “lop-eared cats,” later as Scottish Folds, a nod to their country of origin and their defining characteristic.
Hamish is a Ginger and has 'Scottish' ears, so is a proper little Scotsman! He is very cute, he can be a little bit stand-offish, and has the cutest little Scottish meow! He loves to play and sleep - in fact, he can sleep for Scotland and Australia!

Title: Peek A Boo
Breed: Russian Blue
From Russia with Love, comes our lovely lad Nikolai. He is our resident Russian Blue, and isn’t he as handsome as any James Bond?
Little is known about the origin of the Russian Blue breed, though stories are legendary. Many believe the Russian Blue is a natural breed originating from the Archangel Isles in northern Russia, where the long winters developed a cat with a dense, plush coat. Rumors also abound that the Russian Blue breed descended from the cats kept by the Russian Czars. Assuming the Russian Blue did migrate from northern Russia, it was likely via ship to England and northern Europe in the mid 1860s.
As a Russian Blue, Nikolai is sensitive to visitors moods. He can sense whether to greet you at the door, find a quiet seat next to you, or fetch a toy at playtime. In fact, “fetching” is a favourite pastime for Nikolai.
We are sure you will enjoy your time with Nikolai, and that he will leave you shaken, not stirred!

Rehomed: Toddler was too much for kitty
Clark, aka Clakie, is our handsome Manx Cat, as you will see, he
has no tail and really long back legs. Clark is what’s known as a
“Rumpy Riser”, so he has a slight rise of bine where the tail would start.
The Manx cat is an ancient breed that originated on the Isle of
Man in the Irish Sea. The Manx taillessness is caused by a
mutation that probably originated among the island’s native short-hair cat population, because it is a dominant gene, it spread to the other cats on the island. The Manx cat is the working cat on the Isle of Man and as such, has a strong constitution, great intelligence, and a personality that is active yet not hyperactive.
Clarkie is a playful and intelligent cat who loves all his friends who come to visit him. He has extremely powerful hindquarter legs which allow him to jump to great heights and run with rapid acceleration and quick turns. He really is the speedy one of the team. Manx cats are often said to be “dog-like” both in their loyalty to their families and their love of interactive play, this is most definitely true of our Clark!
