About Me

I run BVCR and as you know I love all animals but I've focused my attention onto cats for a while now because I find them to be very misunderstood and often mistreated due to ignorance.

About Me

This is me(Kosh) as Louise's. As you can see it's a pretty hard life for a cat, especially a kitten as cute as me. Well, I'm not exactly a kitten anymore. I'm having a rest after looking after Little Ashley and the other little kittens. Little Ashley likes falling off things, but gawd he's cute. Me mum still goes out to Louise's to see the cats Personally I think she's a bit dippy for doing it 'cause she's got me now. I know she like Louise and has the greatest admiration, (ooh! That's a big word for a little cat,) for how she cares for the cats. She can turn a feral into a cuddle cat in the blink of an eye. With some cats though, you have to blink very slowly.

About Me

I am German and met my Australian husband in Spain - as you do. Seven years ago I followed him to Australia and took up duck breeding.

Friends gave me my first dog as a wedding present - Max, the gentle giant. My husband Glenn found Misty, his Border Collie and the two dogs got on like a house on fire.

One and a half years ago a friend of mine sent me a picture of four tiny kittens that were about to be destroyed if they didn't find a home within the next 24 hours. I was not looking for a cat - having dogs and Bantam ducks but just wanted to safe a life. Within minutes I was a the vet surgery to pick up my "Tiger" and went home with "Tilda" as well.

And that was it, now we are totally under our cat's paws. Our cats and dogs love each other and even hunt rats and mice together in the duck yard leaving the ducks alone.

We also have rescued nearly 8 year old  "Uncle Toby" that was on display in our pet shop and about to go back to the shelter the next day. Toby had spent about 6 months in shelters, cages, pet shops and we just fell in love with each other through the cage wire. Again, I was not looking for a cat but I just couldn't let that Oldie go back to the shelter.  Toby had met our dogs in the pet shop and was fine with them so I took him home. Our cats gave him hell on earth for about 2 months but we persisted and Toby is now the happiest, luckiest pusscat ever and our girls really like him now. Toby is one very special cat and I will be forever grateful to have him in my life.

Toby is a free spirit and living in cages or indoors is just not his thing so it took a long time for Toby to get over his shelter experience.

Since there are so many unlucky cats without a loving home I have decided to become a foster carer for a cat rescue organization so that at least a few cats do not have to live in cages.

Well, and then three months ago I actually went looking for a rescue cat to adopt into our loving home since we have a lot of space on our property as well as in our hearts.

I found the right cat in yet another rescue organization and we call her lovingly "The Squirrel" since she looks like the cross between a Possum and a Squirrel but has just the most wonderful temperament.

And then there is our Benny who is our only cat that did not need rescue but came from an excellent breeder. Benny is so easy going and friendly and he simply adores his "Uncle Toby".

And last but not least there is my German Shepherd Puppy Lani. Since my older boy Max has such a lovely temperament I fell in love with this incredible breed that I have decided to breed a litter of German Shepherds that come from working stock like my girl.

I take Lani to sheep herding lessons and she also helps me rounding up the ducks at night to keep them safe in their pens.

Max is a Therapy dog and I take him to a nursing home to bring some joy to the elderly.

And as you can see, animals are my life!

I love all animals and find there company so rewarding.

They ask for  so little and yet give so much love.

They deserve the best chance to ensure they find a loving home.

About Me

My name is Donna I am a lover of all Animals but cats have a special place in my heart! I think this is an amazing cause and if I had the money would look after animals for the rest of my life and never work again! I have grown up being the one child in my family who insisted on having a pet at all times whether fish, birds, dogs, hermit crabs you name it i had it.. But never a cat! My dad and sister are highly allergic and so cats were never an option (even though I would find strays look after them until I had to give them up). Now I am older i have a dog (bull mastiff-Finn) and my first cat Bonnie! She is amazing and could never imagine my life without her.. As I type this she is laying on my lap! I hope I can help out more than just sponsoring as I believe all animals have the right to a happy loving life with the perfect family!

Hi. We have not had a cat for several years now. The last one died just 2 weeks short of her 20th. birthday, and the others lived to a ripe old age.

My wife and I both love animals and have thinking about getting another cat, or maybe two.

My wife used to breed Persians and Siamese........and then we had children!

Cheers, Lee.
