Cat report : 9 June - 16 June
Due to popular demand, it was decided to continue publishing the blog version of the cat report. The report will summarise the movements of all cats seen during the week under their respective headings instead of following a daily report.

16 June - The Nukuhuma’s warmed up WE’s cold winter morning when WE found them lying cuddled up together in what can only be described as a lion blanket. The cubs were dozing away and would groom each other on occasion.
