Curious kitten

Never work with kittens and other animals. Just when you get the perfect shot, the kitten heads straight to the camera for a nosey. Check out this close encounter with Ben... or is it Jerry?

Pasca the water monster


Keeping Pasca occupied seems to be a full-time job at the moment. She is such an active kitty! A new favourite seems to be attacking the kitchen roll and spreading it all over the shelter.

One thing guaranteed to keep her quiet is a dripping tap, but you can't leave a tap running all the time, so here she is taking on the much bigger challenge of the fountain.

If you'd like to give Pasca a home, there will never be a dull moment! But remember, she is still a very young cat who will hopefully calm down as she grows up. For more details about adopting Pasca, please use the contact details at the top of the page.

The odd couple

Love knows no boundaries at Woodland Nook but this has to be the oddest couple so far. Tiny, outgoing Twinks has forged a beautiful friendship with big, shy Dennis. Take a look at what we discovered on “Lindee-Lu cam”...

“Busted! And we thought we were safe in here!”

“Ignore the camera, Twinks, and do that thing that I love.”

“Yep, that's the one.”

“There's a bit just above your eye that wants washing, too”

“That's better.”

“Now we would like to be left alone, please, it's nap time.”

Felix - he's a Survivor

Now here’s a cat who needs a theme tune. What do you reckon? The Eye of the Tiger? Can just imagine him making a grand entrance to that intro. And Survivor sums him up as he’s come all the way from Crete to live with Jane, who must have decided that she doesn’t have enough cats!

Felix may look like a big bruiser but he’s a pussycat really. He’s not up for adoption but you will find other lovely cats at Woodland Nook who need homes.

Twinks needs a home

We’re not saying Twinks is highly-strung but, well, just look at her!

Seriously, she’s a lovely cat, just full of the excitement of youth. She needs a home, so if you want a real livewire in your family, Twinks could be the cat for you!
