Ziggy the cat is the son of Twiggy. He was one of the original ‘ratter’ cats kept at the old Origin Energy building. When they moved premises about 5 years ago, they needed a new place to live. Not friendly cats as they were only kept for keeping the rat population down, a new home was going to be difficult for them.
Big Ears built them a purpose built outdoor enclosure with lots of things for these cats to do.
Twiggy the mum cat became friendly after a few years. Ziggy took 5 years and can now be petted, he actually seeks it out. They live in their own enclosure and enjoy each others company.
Ivy is one of the Ulverstone Beach colony of feral cats that we agreed to take in. She lives with her colony friends in a specially built outdoor enclosure. Ivy is slowly becoming more settled with humans and tolerates them moving about her enclosure and feeding her without running and hiding.
Suzie is another of the Ulverstone cat colony that were rescued as an entire group, de-sexed, vaccinated and living in a specially built outdoor enclosure. Suzie was the first of the group to arrive and although she looks peaceful here, she will not allow any human interaction. We have decided to let them live as they once were (yet within safe confines) and if a medical emergency arises, we will trap the cats until we get the one we need and take her/him to the vet for treatment. It is not an easy undertaking having this many feral cats, but it is one that has saved one particular part of Ulverstone beach where latest reports tell me that no more feral cats have been sighted in the area that these cats all came from.

Felix the Cat RIP
Felix the cat was a feral kittie that was trapped on our property with the use of a humane trap. He has lived here for a number of years in a specially built enclosure for him and his friends. They are safe and happy but not too keen on humans.
Felix passed on the 26th September 2016 from lung cancer.
