OLIVER and BETH were kittens when they came to C.L.A.W.S. in the autumn of 2016 and are now are about 5 years old.
When he was a kitten he was scared of noises - the clatter of stainless steel dishes, the raucous cries of magpies and the lawn mower. As he has matured he has overcome most of his fears but still runs for cover at the sound of the lawn mower.
He makes us smile as he looks so bewildered when, having whacked Meg or Ruby, they whack him back !
When Geraldine, a marginated tortoise, first arrived she was put in the enclosure with Oliver and the gang. Oliver couldnít believe his eyes. What was this strange creature ? He didnít know whether to be intrigued or frightened. On one occasion we found him crammed in the tortoise house - both he and Geraldine had their heads poking out the door. What a shame we didnít have a camera handy to capture the moment
He and Beth and friends, Meg and Ruby, have become a happy "familyĒ unit and can often be seen playing together.
