Cilla and Bobby

UPDATE. Cilla has now left The Cosy Cat Café. Following the birth of her 4 beautiful kittens she was poorly so the owner took her home whilst she recovered. After 4 weeks Cilla was in good health and she was neutered so it was time to get her to her new home. Cilla is enjoying life as the only cat now and although we all miss her, we did what we thought was best for her. Mum and Son. Cilla is a bit reserved at first but Bobby is a very playful boy who loves attention. Read more
