My Name is Toulouse. What’s Yours?

Kia Ora everyone. Nice to meet you.

My name is Toulouse and I am auditioning for a place at Dash Kitten. I am a tabby and currently have settled in the room known as ‘second bedroom’ with access to a window bed, Bird TV and plenty of good food.

OK, so I had a little accident on the way home, but no one was worried and, once I was settled into my ensuite facilities with food and water on demand I have settled for a quiet couple of days before I am introduced to the rest of the ‘Crew’.

My Name is Toulouse

I was collected and transported to my new home from Neko Ngeru Cat Adoption Cafe in a wire-topped carrier which gave me an idea of one of my predecessors joys in life, car travel.

I heard the name Dusty mentioned several times and realised I would have a lot to live up to if I decided to become a car-loving adventurcat. I get the impression he was awesome, so we shall see.

Just after I arrived a Tui bird made me welcome by sitting outside my suite and singing for my enjoyment! How cool is that!

For now, wish me luck in my introductions to the rest of the fur family.

The cat cafe say I need a supportive whanau* to give me courage and inspiration to follow a good path in life. I hope I will get that here.

Hiahia kia ora e hoa ma** and I will report again soon.

Toulouse, the Tabby

*Whanau is often translated as ‘family’, but its meaning is more complex. It includes physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions and is based on whakapapa (family background and history).

**Wish me good luck friends.
