Quake Cats Heart-warming Stories Christchurch Cats
By Craig Bullock (

Paperback, 2014, 280 pages, very good condition

A collection of stories about Christchurch cats and the earthquakes – true tales of heroism, odd and quirky stories, funny stories, sad stories – stories that will surprise you, make you chuckle or make you go awwww. There’s Chippy who was found living in an abandoned fish and chip shop in the heart of the Red Zone, eating the old oil, and covered in it. There are the lions and cheetahs of Orana Wildlife Park, who were clearly very disturbed when the huge earthquake struck and the fences banged together, making a fearful sound. The staff were relieved that the power stayed on, keeping the electric fences working so the animals didn’t escape. There’s Max, who wandered about the suburb and found himself a new, loving family; Meisha, who was giving birth when the earthquake struck, and whose owners had to coax her to carry on; inspiring stories of cats who were lost but then reunited with their owners; and stories of the many narrow escapes of miraculous cats with nine lives. There’s a lot of love in this book – cat lovers are a dedicated and passionate breed. And Craig Bullock’s excellent photographs depict this love beautifully; the images are stunning. Part of the proceeds from this book help support Christchurch cat charities which work tirelessly to rehome cats that have become separated from their owners.
