Meet the Cats: Snowy

By | The Cat Cafe Family | No Comments

Lovely Snowy is a favourite of staff and customers alike; she’s a Snow Bengal with a huge personality.

Snowy can often be found sitting on one of the front tables as you enter the cafe. She loves to say hello to people so feel free to go over and have a cuddle, however please be aware that Snowy is actually blind. Because of this, it’s especially important to let her sniff your hand before you start stroking her so that she can ‘meet’ you and feel comfortable. We also really emphasise the importance of not crowding around Snowy as she can sometimes get overwhelmed if there are lots of people around her at once. Having said that, she does love a snuggle and if you’re lucky she might even give you a lick!

Snowy can also be extremely vocal at times! You might hear her let out quite a grumpy meow if any of the staff pick her up as she can get a little confused as to where she is once she is lifted off the ground. She will also occasionally grumble at one of the other cats if they startle her – apart from this, her lack of sight doesn’t bother her much at all. We don’t move our furniture around very much so she’s gotten used to where everything is and doesn’t have any trouble finding her way around!

If you want to play with Snowy then finding  noisy toy is your best bet. She’s a big fan of straws, ping pong balls and anything which she can try and catch. Tapping the ground around her will let her know that you have a toy and want to play – if she seems interested then just persevere and it won’t be long before she is trying to grab it right out of your hands!Snowy is very affectionate with lots of the other cats but her best friends are Keira and Ygritte. Her and Keira can often be found snuggled up together in the cat room, and Ygritte is always keen to lend Snowy a hand navigating her way around the cafe.

Meet the Cats: Harvey

By | The Cat Cafe Family | No Comments

Harvey is one of two Ragdolls here at Cat Cafe Manchester.

He has earned the affectionate nickname of ‘corridor cat’ as his favourite pastime is rolling around in the corridor outside the cafe once we are closed! Although Harvey loves the cafe, he tends to be at his happiest when flopped on the floor having belly rubs. When he isn’t in the corridor, Harvey can also be found being driven around in his Cat Mobile. He doesn’t even need any treats to motivate him; he’ll happily hop into the car and wait for you to start driving it around!

We were recently lucky enough to get Harvey involved in a proposal here at the cafe; he drove up to the happy couple with the wedding ring next to him in the car! It was very cute watching him getting involved in their special day. He was an absolute star and we really hope he added something magical to the moment.

Harvey definitely likes to play when he is in the mood but, being a Ragdoll, he is often happy just relaxing and watching the world go by. If you’d like a cat to snuggle up next to you while you enjoy a coffee, Harvey is the one for you! The cat treats we have available to purchase also tend to be a big hit with him – he is usually first in line when there are Dreamies around.

Out of all of our cats, Harvey has one of the most gentle natures. We recently introduced three new kittens to the cafe and Harvey has been a wonderful ‘cat dad’ to them, giving them lots of cuddles and helping them settle into the cafe. You might also notice his eyes are sometimes a little gunky; Harvey suffers with cat flu which flares up from time to time. Sadly this can be quite contagious so it occasionally gets passed to our other cats – our Cat Nannies have had to become experts at administering eye drops into the eyes of poorly cats!

Georgina is Harvey’s best friend here in the cafe. She loves snuggling up to him and washing his poorly eye. Wherever you see Harvey, Georgie is most likely not far behind!
