The two Maisies, from Maesteg Animal Welfare Society, Bridgend, homed through Cat ChatMaisie (left) came from a multicat household, you can tell from her picture that she was petrified when she came to us. She improved whilst she was with us, but still needed a stable quiet home where she could relax and not be frightened. Old Maisie (right) was originally a stray taken in by an older lady and lived a very contented life for 11 years. Sadly her owner died, so Maisie came to live with us. Because of her age we did not think we would ever find her another home. Luck would have it, an elderly gentleman whose wife had slight dementia thought she would be great company for her, as all she wants to do is sit on the sofa beside you or lay on your bed. She proved a great hit and was very contented, at last she had a lovely home where she could just sleep most of the time and enjoy company. Maisie was with this lovely couple for 8 months. Sadly the gentleman's own health deteriorated, and his wife had to go into a care home. Although she was 12 she was extremely fit and healthy. We’re happy to report both Maisies have now been rehomed thanks to Cat Chat. Must be a lucky name! Thank you.

Bonnie, from Whinnybank Cat Sanctuary, Newburgh, homed through Cat ChatSweetheart Bonnie came to us after her owners had moved away and left her behind. She was not neutered and had probably had lots of kittens in her 11 years. So, off to the vets she went to be neutered & when she was opened up, our suspicions were confirmed that Bonnie had been used as a breeding and money making machine :-( Brilliant news, Bonnie has now been rehomed after being spotted on our Cat Chat page in super fast time as she was only listed for one day!! Thanks for your help as always.

Whinnybank Cat Sanctuary, Newburgh

Sid, from Meows Cat & Kitten Rescue, Dagenham, homed through Cat ChatSid is a 15yr old blind lap cat. He was spotted foraging for food amongst black rubbish bin bags. A very kind lady reported him to a us. He loves sitting on humans’ laps. While in our care, he became good friends with a younger cat and they used to snuggle up together, so the new owner, after spotting him on Cat Chat, adopted both Sid and his mate. Great result!

Spot, from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, homed through Cat ChatSpot is a beautiful 15 years young lady and is super sweet and loves a good fuss!

13 year old Tiger lived her whole life with her owner who recently had to relocate to a care home. This left Tiger needing a new home. Tiger’s life has been spent indoors in a high rise block of flats in West London where she was doted upon. Her removal into rescue has been traumatic as she became quite agitated and it took several months for her to adjust. Whilst in foster care it was also discovered that Tiger is quite deaf. We are delighted to announce that Tiger has now been rehomed with her new owner after being seen on Cat Chat.

Thankfully they have now been rehomed thanks to being seen on Cat Chat.

Milly & Winston from Cat Homing and Rescue (CHAR) Warrington homed through Cat ChatMilly (left) and Lemmie were 12 years old when they came into our rescue as their owner moved into a hospice. They were affectionate cats and needed someone semi-retired or retired to love them in their twilight years. They have been adopted by separate owners under the umbrella of our Golden Oldies Scheme. Winston (right) was very timid  and needed a lot of attention to gain his trust. He needed a home with an experienced cat owner who has lots of patience and time for him. We are delighted that all three cats have found homes after being spotted on Cat Chat. Thank you Cat Chat for helping to find them their forever homes.

Pepper, from Feline Friends, London, homed through Cat ChatAfter trying to find a loving home for Pepper, our black 17 year old hyperthyroid cat, for almost 3 years, we've now found him the ideal home with a young woman who saw Pepper on the 'harder-to-home cats' page on Cat Chat. She lives in a shared house with a protected garden and specifically wanted to offer a home to an older cat, regardless of whether they have medical needs. I simply can't thank you enough Cat Chat for being instrumental in helping find this lovely, elder gent a good home.

Teddy (right) came into us early in 2017 in a right state, his mouth stunk to high heaven as his teeth and gums were in a terrible mess. The vet set about removing all his rotten teeth, which was all of them! He made a brilliant recovery, his gums healed beautifully and he no longer smells of decay! Teddy is at least 10 years old and arrived needing all his teeth removed. He made a brilliant recovery and his gums healed beautifully, Both have now been rehomed after being spotted on Cat Chat.

We are delighted that he has offered them a loving home and the care they both need in their ageing years.

Mr Bojangles, from All Animal Rescue, Southampton, homed through Cat ChatMr Bojangles was found as a stray, very thin, dirty, and just very unloved.

Looks like he’s now found a forever home, thanks to Cat Chat!

Also Binx (right) was spotted on Cat Chat and has a lovely new home, with new feline friends.

Amazing news for Mollie who arrived with us at age 16 at very short notice and with a looming appointment for euthanasia after the sad loss of her owner. Not really expecting a home for her at her age, we featured her on our Cat Chat page anyway and an elderly lady looking for an elderly companion found her and it was love at first sight! Supported all the way by caring friends, it is a fantastic outcome for Mollie and we couldn’t have done it without you!

Rescue cats Felos and Barnet from Tails Animal Rescue Northwich, Cheshire, homed through Cat ChatThank-you so much for featuring 13 year olds - Felos (left) and Barnet (right) on your Overlooked page. I'm so pleased to be able to report that they have found a lovely home with a couple whose aim is to give exactly those kind of overlooked cats a home.  And what a home! Lovely gardens, constant company where they can live out the rest of their days.  I asked them where they heard about the cats from, and they said CatChat Overlooked, so I know it was down to your site.

Montague, from Kirkby Cats Home, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatCat Chat has done it again! We can't believe it, the older (12), not particularly pretty, toothless, grumpy old so and so has got a new home! After over two years in the rescue - his owners left him Dec 2013 for two weeks and never came back - the old grump has got himself new digs and it's all down to him being seen on Cat Chat. Monty's reaction to this has been amazing, he loves his new people, adores his home and has had a complete personality transplant - all Monty needed was someone to give him a chance. Monty's microchip hails from abroad, the Greece/Turkey area so I guess we can say that Monty's asylum claim has been approved and he now has full British citizenship!
