Cats

There are 8 cats at Sangha.  They have all just arrived at various times and decided to stay.  Their names are Ginger, Tiger, Girlina, Marcos, Becho, Lady and Mocha.  They come and go as they please and live freely in the garden. They get all the usual flea and worm treatments and in fact are so well cared for they do not catch rats or mice generally they just watch them pass by.

 

 

About Cats:  Cats have been domesticated for around 4,000 years. Whilst they were once valued for their hunting abilities, they are now valued for their companionship and loving behaviour. While not well known, the collective nouns used for cats and kittens are a clowder of cats and a kindle of kittens. Domestic cats differ from large cats such as lions and tigers because they are naturally active at night and can purr. Cats have 30 teeth (dogs have 42) and have a reflective layer in their eyes which allows them to see up to 6 times better than humans.

What they eat: They have to have protein from meat for a strong heart, good vision, and a healthy reproductive system. Cooked beef, chicken, turkey are a great way to give that. They also eat tinned cat food and cat biscuits.
