Maisie is Homers Mum and we think its just perfect that they got rehomed together.

4 female gerbils now settled in: Francis, Jet, Blush and Siam. The world's cutest cardboard recycling unit! They are enjoying life in a gerbilarium and have perfected the art of digging sand straight out the top in less than a month! Congratulations to all at St.Francis on your excellent hard work and dedication (and persausive skills!!). Here's to a very successful Fun Day.

We re homed 2 lovely cats 4 1/2 years ago, back then they had the names ernie and pasty a wonderful ginger tom and his black sister. They are the most placid cats anyone has ever met and always want a cuddle on the sofa! Now they are known as ozzy and bella. I have recommended st francis to many people who have also re homed with happy endings. You guys do a great job, thank you and next time we are needing new additions we will be coming back to you

We rehomed Gizmo on Tuesday, he settled in straight away. He plays nicely with Millie and shares her water and food bowl, they eat together sleep together and where 1 is the other is not far behind, he loves nothing more than being cuddled and having his ears scratched. He still doesnt like being picked up BUT no longer tries to bite me lol, when he wants to sit on our laps he gives a lovely little war dance and talks to us which is really cute.Lead training is going well and he enjoys our long walks.thanks so much for allowing us to bring him home

We are now owned by two 3-yr old boys that moved in last October. They can't replace the hole left by Pushka (another ex St Francis cat) but they have managed to create their own spaces in our hearts. The two brothers are always keeping us on our toes with play fighting or stealing our warm patches on the sofa!! We feel very lucky with our choice of cats and couldn't wish for better.
