Meet The UKMadCats – Jack, Ozzy And Tigger

Jack – June 2000 – October 2008

We got Jack from a  local rescue shelter in September 2000. He was 3 months old. He was the original Madcat that inspired me to create our original website and MadCat diaries that were all about Jack and his daily antics. He loved playing fetch, and when fed up he would eat the wool ball to end the game!!! He loved playing under our rugs throughout the house and he made us laugh daily. Unfortunately he contracted FIV at around 18 months old, and his life changed. He wasn no longer allowed outside, so he did not infect other cats in the area. He was often ill with small ailments fro having a weakened immune system. He lost his fight to FIV in October 2008. He is still greatly missed. 

Ozzy – 2007 – 14th September 2018


Ozzy the oldest of the 4, but that does not mean that he’s the boss! He loves sleeping, sunbathing and eating! He arrived at our house as a kitten that had been left in a box in a local park. A neighbour picked him up and brought him to our house, and that is where he stayed. He is a big cat, but he’s a scaredy cat and will jump at his own shadow. He likes a quiet life, and tends to spend much of his time in this bed on the cat tree, watching life go by. He loved sitting in the garden watching the wildlife carry on their daily life. He suffered some sort of neurological trauma. His eyes were permanently dilated and he was suffering from other neurological issues. We decided that it was best for him to end his life with dignity and love, so  we decided to let him go to sleep for one last final time.  

Tigger – 2007 – 2017


Tigger was 10 years old and had a very adventurous life! I first met Gary (as he was known then) when I went to my vet for something. On the counter was a tiny kitten with very runny eyes and a loud sneeze. He had been left outside the vets one night in winter with a bad case of cat ‘flu. He was treated in the vets for 6 months before they looked for a home for him. After much persuasion from myself and the vet nurses my husband allowed him to come home with us, and then we were a 2 cat household! He was the size of a 3 month kitten and still quite ill, we nursed him up to be a happy cat. He loves going for rides in peoples cars and has gone missing a few times… but that is another story! He loves eating, sunbathing, sleeping and eating! He is currently suffering from congestive heart failure, and we are trying to make his last months as happy and cuddle filled as possible. Unfortunately, Tigger lost his fight to congestive heart failure in May 2017. He is sadly missed.
