Neelix's story

Hi Cassandra, We adopted Neelix (now called Monty) from you.

He has settled in beautifully and is a lovely, lovely cat

he and our 2.5 year old son, Toby; go everywhere together

even to the toilet! After a big morning playing and running around yesterday, Toby slept for three hours, Monty too, and then it all started up again. Monty was in bed and asleep by 7, Toby 7.30.

The best toy for a toddler is a kitten! We love him

he is a real character and is perfect for Toby

he puts up with being carted around, played with, patted, rumbled and snuggled. He helps with cooking, cleaning, playing and of course showers

but he only got in once! Now he sits outside and waits for us to get out and move on to the next exciting thing that needs doing.

A great cat for us!

Thank you so much for this wonderful addition to our family


Nic, Simon and Toby
