Teddy, from Kathy's Cats Rescue, The Wirral, homed through Cat ChatAfter being returned to us as ‘too timid’, beautiful and gentle boy Teddy has been offered a home and as soon as his new owners are back from holiday he will be going. They saw him on Cat Chat and we did home-check last night so thank you.

Teddy, Salem & Balika, from Burton Joyce Cat Welfare, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatFlipping well done Cat Chat! Teddy (left) had been with us since before Christmas first at Kirkby and then moved to Burton Joyce. A big black ball of terrified fluff, he appealed to nobody but eventually came round slightly and with added exposure on Cat Chat someone came along for him. Guess what - the moment he got in his new home he became a lap cat! If only more people would give the nervous ones a chance, a lot just don't like the pen. Similar story for Salem (middle) and Balika (right): they came in and never made it to our homing page, the reason is because we'd had people enquiring about other cats that they'd seen on Cat Chat and asked us to keep them informed of any future candidates. So although not seen on our homing page we'd have not got the enquiry without Cat Chat.

Angel, from National Animal Welfare Trust Tameside, Manchester, homed through Cat ChatHi team! Just want to thank you again for another successful advert for homing: We had quite a few people show interest in Angel but for different reasons not the right home for her. However a lovely couple came along with their 14 year old daughter and they just wanted her there and then. We chatted about them, their home and their 2 previous cats. They were just the right people for her. Very understanding. We delivered Angel to them on Sunday 22nd. She had a new igloo bed and plenty of toys waiting for her. She now starts her new life in a lovely big underfloor heated conservatory where she can just relax and gain a little confidence before exploring the rest of the house, so it won't be overwhelming for her. She's going to be really spoiled!

Sylvester from City Cat Shelter, Brighton, homed through Cat ChatWe have had our very own Christmas miracle here already with a home for Sylvester, our saddest, angriest and hardest-to-home boy who exploded into a bundle of purring, beaming, tail-waving joy as soon as he got to his new home! He was spotted on Cat Chat, thank you.

City Cat Shelter, Brighton

Mandy from Rolvenden Cat Rescue, Kent, homed through Cat ChatMore brilliant news - Mandy has been rehomed - another of our overlooked cats.  She has gone to a stable where she has the company of two other cats - she is in a special unit (provided by us) for her first month so she and they get acclimatised to each other.  The people using the stables are making friends with her and she is being given lots of treats so she certainly will know what side her bread is buttered when she is allowed more freedom.  She is very happy and becoming more outgoing - marvellous! What a change of location and the suitability of that choice and her new servants.

Dior, from Cat Homing & Rescue, Warrington, homed through Cat ChatDior needed a quiet home with lots of love and attention to enable her to develop into a confident, trusting and happy little cat. Pretty Dior was rehomed after being spotted on the Cat Chat Overlooked Cats page. Many thanks!

Pansy, from Rolvenden Cat Rescue, Kent, homed through Cat ChatWe have fantastic news about Pansy - he has now gone to his furrever home where there is a cat for companionship.  He is already settling in well and starting to come out of himself - something we find when people do give these shy cats a home.  The enquiry came through Cat Chat.

Milo, from Burton Upon Stather Cat Rescue, Scunthorpe, homed through Cat ChatMilo went to his new home on Sunday after being spotted on Cat Chat, and appears to be settling well. He came into rescue 17 months ago with a poorly paw and was a very nervous cat. Thanks to lots of tlc from his fosterer he is now an adorable loving affectionate boy.

Waffle & Mimi from Marjorie Nash Cat Rescue, Amersham, homed through Cat ChatMimi (left) and Waffle (right), mother and daughter, came in together when Mimi had another litter of kittens and they were brought in as a strays.  They were both very shy and have been with us for many months, but they came round and at last their luck changed when someone spotted their details on our Cat Chat homing page.  We are so very pleased that they can go together, as they are very close, and that they are going to an old people's home so there should be plenty of comfy chairs, warm laps and fusses for them!  Thanks again Cat Chat!

Susie, from Kirkby Cats Home, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatAnother long termer that has eventually found someone to put up with her and her obnoxious behaviour :) Susie had been with us nearly a year, she hated the rescue, the other cats and everyone who approached her got a whack just to remind them. After being seen on Overlooked Cats Susie was lucky, someone who wasn't daunted by her tantrums gave her a chance. A new mum and her own place has given Susie an attitude adjustment and she's settling well.

Alice & Alan, from Burton Joyce Cat Welfare, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatThis really is good news and all the credit goes to Cat Chat, Alice and Alan had been with us over six months from wild to still quite nervous but their new mum was not to be dissuaded! We are grateful to her for giving them a chance.

Phoebe & Purdy, from Kirkby Cats Home, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatWe put Phoebe (left) and Purdy (right) on our homing page without much hope, but the nervous mother and daughter fell on their paws when someone spotted them and decided to give them a chance.

Topsy and Simon from Whinnybank Cat Sanctuary, Newburgh, homed through Cat ChatBrilliant news: Topsy (left) & Simon (right) have now gone to a new home after being spotted on Cat Chat. They were pretty much semi-feral so they will have a fantastic life in their new home in the Hebrides with a fisherman - who will be spoiling them by supplementing their diet with lobster!! Thanks, as always for your help.

Cyril from Ann & Bill's Cat & Kitten Rescue, Hornchurch, homed through Cat ChatAfter being seen on Cat Chat, we have rehomed Cyril who has been with us for 18 months because he is very shy. But a couple whose cat has just died saw Cyril and said they would like to give him a home. Although he has been with us a long while and we have got attached to him, we knew that he needed a home that he can call his own. Good luck Cyril!

Clyde & Mac from Ann & Bill’s Cat Rescue, homed through Cat ChatAfter being seen on Cat Chat our Clyde and Mac have got a new home. A nice family came to see them and although they were a little bit shy, said yes they would like them to join their family.

chance. Needless to say, we are delighted!

Rescue cats Ella & Stella from Burton Joyce Cat Welfare, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatEventually, these two lovely, but slightly nervous, girls found someone to give them a chance. We'd had lots of enquiries about them from their listing on Cat Chat, but their temperament meant it took a while to find the right home. They are now slowly settling and owe their new lives, thanks to Cat Chat.
