From a chance encounter at one week old, Cuarta has found her forever home with Tom and his family... along with their two dogs. A cat was never planned for in the house, in fact, a cat was never considered given the two dogs already living with them. Bringing up Cuarta was and is a learning experience. Tom talks to me about those first nights with Cuarta, where her name comes from, and why she likes the house's internet router so much.

Cedric is one chill cat. From a very early age, he just sat back and enjoyed the world... unless he hears the hoover. Chelsea was introduced to him when he was a one-week-old kitten, and there was never any doubt that he would be joining Chelsea and her partner as they all started a new life in a new home. Ewan talks with Chelsea about moving house (twice) with Cedric and how he has adapted to moving house, matching the new sofa styles to Cedric's cat tree, and the two other cats in his life...

Brought in to her local shelter, Yvie's kittens were quickly adopted, but it took Sam coming along before Yvie could find her forever home. Diagnosed with cerebellar hypoplasia, Yvie's wobble has not stopped her enjoying life at all, with the run of the house, lots of love, and the ability to lip-sync whenever required. She's also made a huge difference to Sam and her fiancé, filling that classic cat-shaped hole that every family has. Ewan sits down with Sam to talk about Yvie's life, how...

Paul talks to Ewan about Eric's life, the many places around the house where he loves to sleep, and the very precise routines he demands.


My Cat’s Tale – Clara and Storm

Clara and Storm are two very social cats. They know many people where they live, who has the nicest spots to catch the sun, and who will feed them. They also have a little GPS collar so David can find out where they have travelled... and they travel far and wide during all hours of the day and night. Ewan sits down to talk with David about the technology he uses to support Clara and Storm, how excited they are when he comes home, and a curious night with a hedgehog.


My Cat’s Tale – Pawsley

My Cat’s Tale – Ophur and Rosie

Ophur and Rosie are two gorgeous rag-doll cats from New Zealand. Like any classic double act, Rosie is the one who runs around and wants to do everything all at once, while Ophur is a little bit more sedate and measured in his approach to life as the top cat of the household. Carla tells us the story of these two cats who were instantly close to each other, even if Ophur will not share his box. We also talk about the huge positive influence that Ophur and Rose have made to Carla's life, and...
