Great news:  We are very grateful to Cat Chat as we have found a great home for Balmie through you.  Golden oldie Balmie (14) was in urgent need of rehoming as his elderly mum was going into a nursing home in a matter of weeks. He was a very loving, gorgeous friendly boy - much adored.

Tiggy, from Isle Cat Rescue, Doncaster, homed through Cat ChatOur lovely 12 year old tortie who was looking for a home has just moved to her amazing new residence. We cannot thank you enough! The couple saw Tiggy on Cat Chat. She was the perfect match for their life. Unfortunately last year her owner very sadly passed away, and for a short period of time she found herself on the streets. She was a senior girl looking for lots of love who loved cuddles and company but also food!

Albert & Winnie

Albert & Winnie, from Burton Joyce Cat Welfare, Nottingham, homed through CatChatJust want to say a massive thank you from Albert (left) and Winnie (right) who have found a second chance in life after the death of their owner, despite being older felines, and it's all down to CatChat.

Kitty, from  Paws & Claws Animal Rescue Service, Haywards Heath, homed through Cat ChatKitty, 15, has been homed after being spotted on Cat Chat. The poor girl had been down on her luck as of late: her owners handed her over to a veterinary surgery as they felt they could no longer care for her and, recently, our veterinarian found that Kitty had a potentially life-limiting liver condition. Needless to say this made it very difficult to find a home for this dear cat. Kitty was a beautiful cat and did not look her age at all.

Smokey, from Moonstone Rescue, Hertford, homed through CatChatSmokey was noticed through Cat Chat. Could she have a spot on the Rehoming Roll of Honour please? Smokey is a beautiful cat who looks less than half her age. She isn't your typical "senior" cat as she loves to explore throughout the day, chasing lasers, searching for treats and getting a lot of attention and also likes to go out walking.

Moonstone Rescue, Hertford

Kiki & Tammy

Kiki & Tammy, from All Animal Rescue, Southampton, homed through Cat ChatThanks to Cat Chat, Tammy & Kiki have now found their forever homes. Kiki (left) was a 14 year old tabby and white domestic shorthair female and Tammy (right) was Kiki’s 12 year old daughter, a domestic shorthair tortoiseshell female. Kiki and Tammy came in to the rescue as their owner was sadly having to move to a smaller property with no access to the outside. These two girls were just amazing, so sweet natured. They loved to be brushed and loved nothing more than a lap.

Dougie, from  RSPCA Cheshire, Altrincham, homed through Cat ChatSo happy to say that Dougie has now been rehomed and even happier to say that the family who adopted him saw him on Cat Chat. So thank you for all your help advertising him. Dougie was approximately 15 years old and the biggest cuddle cat ever.  Due to a tumour he had a leg removed, the tumour was diagnosed as spindle cell sarcoma which is rare in cats.  The tumour was of an intermediate grade and hopefully with the leg amputation Dougie should have a long life.  

RSPCA Cheshire, Altrincham


Susie, from Isle Cat Rescue, Doncaster, homed through CatChatSusie is a sensible, sweet, older lady who loves nothing more than a lot of attention and fusses - the person who rehomed her found us through CatChat, all the enquiries we have had about Susie have come via CatChat! We have been amazed by the amount of people who expressed an interest in her! Thank you.

Isle Cat Rescue, Doncaster


Heidi, from Miracle Helping the Madness, Manchester, homed through Cat ChatHeidi, aged 14, was just the sweetest thing ever and wanted cuddles all the time. She came into care last summer, after her elderly owner became ill. Heidi had been overlooked (or had no serious enquiries) possibly due to her age, until she was posted on Cat Chat. This is a picture of her in her new bed in her forever home. Thank you!

Miso, from Mitzi's Kitty Corner, Totnes, homed through CatChat13 year old Miso went to her new home which came via our Cat Chat entry. Many, many thanks.

Cornelia & Julius, and more…

Cornelia & Julius, from Friends of Felines, Halstead, homed through Cat ChatCornelia (left), Julian (right), Orion, Geoffrey, Olaf & Mumma have all been homed via Cat Chat. Cornelia was a tortie point Ragdoll, her buddy Julius was a red point Ragdoll. They needed a new home because their owner was leaving the country. 14 year olds, in good health, vet checked indoor cats. They needed a home with older children, no other pets and someone home a lot of the time.

Friends of Felines, Halstead


Rosie, from Anim-Mates, Sevenoaks, homed through Cat ChatRosie was rehomed via Cat Chat. She was an incredibly gentle, affectionate and sweet-natured cat who loved to interact with people and could be quite chatty and playful at times, despite being a senior kittizen.

Anim-Mates, Sevenoaks


Sox, from Lulubells Rescue, Enfield, homed through CatChatI found Sox on CatChat back in June 2021, and he joined the family at the end of July. Sox and his brother were found living outside when their old owners had moved away and they were fending for themselves alongside neighbours who helped feed them occasionally. Lulubells Rescue rescued them in January and placed them with an amazing fosterer. Unfortunately, Sox's brother passed away from cancer in May, leaving him alone and in need of a cat companion. I was looking for a companion cat for my girl, whose adopted brother also passed away in May. I was struggling to find a single, older, cat that could be with another cat - so hit the jackpot when i found Sox on CatChat. After a very slow introductory period, the two of them are now getting on well together and gradually getting closer each day. As you can see, he is also enjoying the garden. Thank you to Lulubells Rescue, Enfield for rescuing him.

Rupert, from Yorkshire Cat Rescue, Keighley, homed through CatChatWe saw 13 year old Rupert on Cat Chat and adopted him through Yorkshire Cat Rescue. He's made himself at home and loves to sunbathe or settle down in front of the fire. He's such a lovely character, very loud! He sits on the back of my chair and taps me on the head when he wants food or a fuss! Thanks for sharing Rupert on your site.

Cath, Keighley


Biscuit, from Whinnybank Cat Sanctuary, Newburgh, homed through Cat ChatGreat news – 14 year old friendly boy Biscuit has now found a new home after being spotted on our Overlooked Cats listing on Cat Chat!!

Whinnybank Cat Sanctuary, Newburgh


Lisette, from BJ Cat Rescue, homed through CatChatFourteen year old Lisette was rehomed via Cat Chat, many thanks. We were the second rescue to have taken her in; she has lived quite an active albeit sad life and now needed a well deserved retirement. Lisette longed to be in her own safe warm home, and now she can sleep, eat and be a happy pampered puss.

BJ Cat Rescue, Nottingham


Tali, from Wonky Pets Rescue, Northampton, homed through Cat ChatWe are very pleased to say that 15 year old Tali has gone to her new home after being spotted on the Overlooked Cats section. Stunning Tali came to us via the dog warden after her owner sadly passed away and she had nowhere to go. We were only too happy to help this beautiful girl. Tali is used to a quieter home, she is a shy little thing and needed an adult only home with a couple or single person who is home a lot, a nice safe enclosed garden to venture into if she wanted.  Thank you so much!

Samba & Gizzy

Samba & Gizzy, from Mitzi's Kitty Corner, Totnes, homed through Cat ChatSome great news about two super seniors: Mitzi's Kitty Corner, Totnes had taken beautiful 'Golden Oldies’ Samba (15) (left) and her companion Gizzy (17) into their care, when their owner sadly died. The family had been unable to take them in because they had cats of their own. It's a heartbreaking situation. Samba & Gizzy needed to find a new cat lover who would appreciate their affection and enjoy their charm. Thankfully, this inseparable pair have now found their new forever home due to their appearance on Cat Chat.

Mitzi's Kitty Corner, Totnes


Frazzle, from Lulubells Rescue, homed through CatChat12-year-old Frazzle was rescued when she was no longer wanted by those she loved and trusted. She loves to sleep outside and really enjoys a good snooze in a sunny spot. Frazzle was rehomed through Cat Chat.

Lulubells Rescue, Enfield

Bea & Furball

Bea & Furball, from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, homed through Cat ChatBea (left) is a very pretty young girl. She has her cuddly moments but she can be a little temperamental, so wouldn’t suit a home with children. She had the potential to live with other cats and does seem interested in the cats around her. Furball (right) is 15 years old and found herself in a shelter due to the sad loss of her owner. She chats to you and her meaning is usually clear. She isn’t keen on other cats and has a grumble at the cats around her. She’s a grumpy little old lady but a character that we love! We now have two lovely homes for these two pretty ladies and they found us through Cat Chat. Both girls are settled in their new homes.

The Two Maisies

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.

Maesteg Animal Welfare Society, Bridgend


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.

Sid & Friend

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!

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.

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.

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.

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