Freya's Background

We first noticed Freya on the RSPCA Ashford's Website but didn't really pay attention much, as she was 5 years old and we were looking for a younger cat, and they also suggested that she might only be suitable for experienced Bengal owners, and we only had experience of a very frisky feral cat. Anna fell in love with her straight away, but was discouraged by not being an experienced Bengal owner.

Speaking to Leslie at Ashford, (The best Cat rescue person you could hope to meet) we were excited to hear that Freya might be ok for us after all, and decided to go and visit to see if Freya liked us. Straight away we were bowled over by her colours and spots, as we hadn't seen a Bengal before. She jumped out of her pen, and just seemed so curious and confident and made it quite clear that we'd be suitable for her!

It seemed she had an interesting past though. She had been rescued from a breeder along with over 20 other cats. 4 of the other cats have their own blogs too - there's a link on the right hand side of this blog. We believe Freya was one of the breeding queens so there's a chance that Samwise, Merry, Frodo and Gandalf are her kittens! Lets hope they remember when it comes to their mum's birthday, eh?

I have just been and asked Gandalf and Frodo when thier Mum's birthday is and they are a little unsure, can you help? I know they would love to send a card and a prezzie.

Freya says her birthday is tomorrow, but I think she's fibbing. We've decided that it's 26th March - the day we got her. She'd also like to do without the party poppers, sirens, candles, loud noises and singing if possible too :-)

Co-incedentally, that's one month to the day that our beautiful black Feral cat, Scampi passed away. :-(
