Here at Starlight's we are big animal lovers, and have several furry family members. Here are their photos and a little about them. You may see some of them when you come to visit! All of our pets have grown up alongside small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters, and some even have identity issues and act more like rabbits! (including eating hay, pellets and seeing fresh hay as a nice place to bed down!)
Pepper is a 5.5 year old semi-long haired cat. Originally coming to live with us in 2009, she was abandoned with her 3 kittens, only being 6 months old herself. She was a fantastic mother. Whilst her kittens found rescue places, we fell in love with her, and she stayed! Pepper likes curling up on pillows, dribbling when content, and meowing profusely for chicken!
Ashley is an 11 year old black cat. We took him on as he had 48 hours to find a home before being euthanised. On arrival he pined for his previous owners for 4 days. Never eating, using the litter box, just staring at the wall. Originally we took him in to find him a new home or rescue place, but no one wanted an elderly black cat, so he stayed. Ashley likes sleeping on the sofa or on top of the hutches.
Cookie is a 3 year old crossbreed. Originally found on a facebook selling page emaciated and smelly, we took her on, fed her up and sought veterinary attention for her, Now she is a bouncy healthy girl who loves cats and rabbits, and thinks she is one! She will be seen in the dog crate on arrival, as she does not understand floor level cuddles!
All of our rabbits live together in a 20ft x 5ft custom aviary!
Caspian is the only male rabbit of the group, and is part giant. He is a big stroppy, stubborn rabbit, who likes to henpeck the girls. He is a grouchy boy, who is normally found sprawled out in the kennel asleep!
