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 a 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.
