Tigger, from Furballs Rescue, Camberley, homed through Cat ChatTigger just left for his new home thanks to Cat Chat! He's already claimed the sofa as his and allowing his humans to share it with him. He is a beautiful five year old who needed an especially caring home, as he is FIV positive. He loves to chill in his bed and enjoys a good ear scritch.

Snowy, from The Cat House Rescue, Bradford, homed through CatChatJust to let you know Snowy from your Overlooked Cats page has found a home through Cat Chat. It's been brilliant for homing the FIV+ boys. Thank you.

Sooty, from Thanet Cat Club, Broadstairs, homed through Cat ChatOur lovely FIV+ Sooty was spotted on the Overlooked section on Cat Chat and has found his forever new home. Sooty was a gorgeous boy who was used to being indoors. He was gentle, friendly and loved having a fuss and a tummy rub. A general health check before entering our cattery flagged up a surprising positive FIV test result for him. This was re checked as otherwise he was in a very good condition. There is no reason why Sooty shouldn't have a long and healthy life. Thank you for your wonderful website!

Kimba, from Mitzi's Kitty Corner, homed through CatChatA big thank you - Kimba was rehomed last weekend! Kimba had been fending for himself outside for some time before being reported to us, and being brought into rescue. As an older, FIV positive cat, we knew it would not be easy to find the right home for Kimba, but he has found an ideal home offering lots of love, a big bungalow to explore as well as a secure garden, with his own adventure playground. His new ‘butler’ saw him on our Cat Chat page. Thank you.

Hugo, from New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, homed through CatChatHugo's new owner spotted him on Cat Chat. She has quite a few friends who have FIV cats so she was quite clued up. Can't tell you how grateful I am for your help. He had been with me for about 16 months.

Elvis, from Cat Action Trust NE Scotland, Aberdeen, homed through Cat ChatFriendly tabby FIV boy Elvis loves a cuddle and lots of attention. He was seen on Cat Chat and the lady read the Cat Chat link about FIV cats, so didn't have to do much research. When she met him he was on her lap purring away quite happily. So Elvis left the building as they say, a few days later :)

Oliver, from Hay Cat Rescue, Hay-on-Wye, homed through Cat ChatTwo year old Oliver is a wonderful black and white chap with lots of character. His left eye was badly scarred and had to be removed. Having been a stray, he was also found to be FIV positive. It didn’t hold him back though and he’s a happy chap, taking home life in his stride. He loves a cosy bed and most of all, food! He now has a new home, found through Cat Chat. Thank you for all your help.

Buster, from Yorkshire Animal Shelter, Leeds, homed through Cat ChatBuster is a lovely 11 year old tabby and white boy who had been a stray most of his life. He was left behind by students when they moved and no one had cared for him since. Buster has now found a new home thanks to Cat Chat. He was spotted on your website and has found the perfect forever home. It is thanks to you that cats like Buster (elderly and FIV positive) have the chance of a loving future. Many thanks.

Chuck from Anim-Mates, Sevenoaks homed through Cat ChatChuck is a handsome, chatty boy who was found as a stray but has found the comforts of living indoors to be rather nice. He will stand on his hind legs for some headbumps and will happily follow you around once he knows that he can trust you. He tested positive for the FIV virus. We're pleased to say he has been rehomed having been seen on Cat Chat. As always thank you, wonderful people at Cat Chat, for the good work that you do.

Tootsie, from BabsCats, Swanley, homed through Cat ChatTootsie is 3 years old and has FIV/ Leukaemia, and has to be fed on wet food only. He’s a stunning black & white lad, and has finally found a forever warm, loving home to lay his head, after being spotted on Cat Chat.

Samson, from Pet Rescue Greater Manchester, Lancashire, homed through Cat ChatSamson is a very big cat over 6kg. He is a beautifully marked marble tabby with the head of a lion. He is FIV positive and has lived rough on an allotment for many years. Samson will now be going to his new home soon. His new parents did find his details on Cat Chat's Overlooked section, and I'm delighted this beautiful boy now has the future he deserves. Best Whiskers!

Ricky from Cat Rescue Chippenham, homed through Cat ChatRicky was blind, with matted fur and a mouthful of rotten teeth, probably due to being FIV positive. He was miserable and had virtually given up the will to live. After having 5 teeth removed he was soon eating well and taking his medication. So he was looking for a special someone who could look after an elderly, blind, deaf, FIV+ cat who suffers with high blood pressure and would need daily medication, regular monitoring at the vets, as well as regular grooming. Someone who will ask nothing more than to have the reward of caring for this older cat who still has some of his 9 lives left and still enjoys life in his quiet way. Miraculously after being spotted in Cat Chat's Overlooked Cats section, over a year later he has had a home offer from a veterinary nurse who is obviously aware of the implications of all his health issues, I cannot believe it. THANK YOU Cat Chat so so much for your part in giving Ricky his happy ever after.

Geoffrey from Avon Cat Rescue, Warwickshire, homed through Cat ChatThis is Geoffrey who caught my attention on the overlooked cats page of Cat Chat back in 2010. It was love at first sight! I adopted him when he was 4 years old, although my vets added around 4 years to the estimate after a dental, so I think he's 16 now. He's FIV+ but you'd not know it. The only concession to that is that he's always been an indoor cat. Although I've moved home a few times he's been with me through it all, thick and thin. After all, my house is not my home without my cat! Thanks to Avon Cat Rescue for giving a scruffy human the chance to own such an awesome companion!

Colin from Burton Joyce Cat Welfare, homed through Cat ChatColin had a tough start in life living on the streets where he picked up FIV. He is an affectionate cat who appreciates human attention and really loves his grub! FIV cats tend not to be rehomed very quickly but thankfully Colin was spotted in Cat Chat's Overlooked Cats section and he has now settled into his new narrow boat home and is a very happy chap!

Chalky from Burton Joyce Cat Welfare (& Kirkby Cats Home), Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatI have some absolutely fantastic news.  A grubby, white FIV+ boy Chalky has found a home after being seen on Cat Chat.  He settled straight away and the photo is of him in his new home after just having woken up.

Rescue cat Paddington from Marjorie Nash Cat Rescue, Amersham, homed through Cat Chat      I just wanted to let you know of another Cat Chat success - a vet nurse posted details of Paddington on your forum, pleading for a home as he was due to be put to sleep after being handed in as a stray in his early teens and having tested FIV+. One of our volunteers spotted him, fell for him, and having been driven halfway across the country he is now settling well in his new home - all thanks to Cat Chat and the dedicated vet nurse who fought his corner!

tortie cat homed through Cat Chat from national animal welfare trust thurrockWe are happy to tell you of a cat that has been homed. Sadly, Suki's owner died, so social services brought her to us. She is such a lovely girl. As we have all our cats blood tested, we found she has FIV. The new owners know all of this and understand it. She is now settled in a home where she is really worshipped and thoroughly spoiled, all thanks to Cat Chat.

Rescued tabby cat FIV positive, homed from Rescue me sanctuaryThis is our second FIV cat to have found a home thanks to Cat Chat. We honestly thought Al Capone would be with us for quite some time as he is an older chap, an ex-feral and has kidney issues, but someone saw him and fell in love! We cannot thank you enough.

Rescue Tabby FIV Cat homed MerseysideWe want to say a huge thank you as several of our harder to home cats have now found homes thanks to Cat Chat. Currently, Dillon has left the building. Dillon is FIV positive and was rescued after living rough in awful conditions. He hasn't got a bad bone in his body and charmed all the sanctuary volunteers!

pandora cat homed marjorie nash rescue amershamFound as a stray with a severed paw at less than a year old, and FIV+, poor Pandora had a dreadful start in life, so we are thrilled to report that she was spotted on our Cat Chat homing page and has found herself the perfect home. By all accounts she is settling in well and now has two adoring slaves to pander to her every whim, which is no more than she deserves. We are thrilled for her, and very grateful to Cat Chat for giving her that chance – thank you!
