Mr Softee, from Burton Joyce Cat Welfare, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatPoor old Mr Softee had been through the wars! He was damaged physically and emotionally after a severe beating, however after a couple of weeks on our homing page he found a new dad and a new life.

Yoyo, from Cat & Kitten Rescue, Watford, homed through Cat ChatLovely three-legged girl Yoyo has finally been rehomed after being spotted on Cat Chat Overlooked Cats page. She is now thriving in her forever home. Thank you!

Buzz, from Marjorie Nash, Amersham, homed through Cat ChatBuzz came in to us as a stray who had obviously got lost or been left behind as he was very friendly.  His coat was in a dreadful state and we had to clip out all the matts, so he wasn't looking at his best for several weeks.  After a wait of several months and one false start though no fault of his own, Buzz has at last found a place to call home.  He's gone to a lovely family with no other cats, but a very cat-friendly dog who had apparently been missing their old cat, recently passed away at a ripe old age.  Buzz apparently wasn't hugely impressed on first introduction to the dog, and he hissed at him, but the dog was determined to be friends, went off to fetch his beloved tennis ball, brought it back and laid it in front of Buzz as a peace offering! A week on they're still not best friends but are already happy to sleep in the same room, so things are looking good.  Buzz was seen on our Cat Chat homing page, so a big thank you to Cat Chat from us, and from Buzz!

Emmett from Rolvenden Cat Rescue, Rolvenden, homed through Cat ChatI found my lovely little fella Emmett through yourselves and brought him home on 21st December 2016.  Apparently he had been abandoned by previous owners and then treated badly while on the streets.  As you can see by his photo, he's a gorgeous boy and a welcome addition to my family.  I think you all do an amazing job for these poor defenceless animals.  Thank you for helping me find Emmett!

Stanley, from National Animal Welfare Trust Tameside, Manchester, homed through Cat ChatI am so pleased to tell you that Stanley went to his new home yesterday.

Gus & Frank from Nuneaton & Hinckley Cats in Need, Hinkley, homed through Cat ChatWe were lucky enough to be contacted by a fab lady initially looking for a different cat on our Cat Chat page but then it became apparent that she was a perfect hope for our little Gus (pictured) who was born with congenital dwarfism and had always been a stray, living outside and sheltered by a neighbour. He is now a spoilt, happy pet and still just as scrumptious. Another of our kittens, Frank, was also homed after being seen on our page. You are all amazing!

Eleanor (left) and Emily (right), mum and daughter, 7 and 6, had been in our care for 10 weeks and we were getting concerned if anyone would give a home to two mature cats. A couple in Crawley Down (well outside our area) saw ​Eleanor and Emily​ on Cat Chat and have adopted them. Many thanks for your help and wonderful work!

Troy/Percy from Mitzi's Kitty Corner, Totnes, homed through Cat ChatTroy was rehomed and Cat Chat had a very big part, thank you!! It's exciting because he was chosen especially because he was overlooked!  He was interviewed for a job and is now the official station cat with Dartmoor Railway (Okehampton train station). He has his quarters in their historic signal box and his own Facebook page. They had a competition to rename him Percy!! He has settled fabulously well and already has his own fan club.

Giles & Adele from Burton Joyce Cat Welface, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatGiles (left) went on our homing page on the Monday and was in his new home by the Saturday afternoon, hardly surprising as he was young, handsome and desirable and the spitting image of the cat his new owner had lost.  Adele (right) had been with us since the beginning of the year and looked like going nowhere, she was black and bald but blessed with the sweetest nature a cat could have. This weekend she was adopted after being seen on Cat Chat and settled in with her new family straight away.  Both these cats owe their new start to Cat Chat.

Alfie, from Knight Cat and Kitten Rescue, Doncaster, homed through Cat ChatAlfie is now happily settled into his new home, after being spotted on Cat Chat.

Luckily a kind neighbour called us for help and we were able to take him. Many thanks!

 Smokey from National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, homed through Cat ChatAnother success!  Smokey was a stray cat that came to us in a bad condition.  After vet treatment we put her on Cat Chat and wonderful owners came forward.  After just over a month with them she is doing well and is very loved. Thank you Cat Chat.

Janie, Sasha and more, from Kirkby Cats Home, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatJanie, Sasha and Oliver. Janie (left) and Sasha were on our homing page, Oliver (right) wasn't as he had problems and we considered him unhomeable at the time. The couple that came to see the girls fell in love with them and gave them a chance, despite them being nervous. On the way out they were accosted by Oliver who was loose in the garden and fell in love with him! They took him with his bald patches due to knots being shaved and his stomach problem, we sent him with his medication and he's reported to be slowly improving. All three owe their new lives to Cat Chat.

Milo, from National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, homed through Cat ChatWhen his owner died suddenly, poor Milo didn't know what had happened. He came to us but was in an a very sad state.

Together they are so happy. Once again thanks to Cat Chat!

Now he has found a family to call his own. All the best and thanks!

Rescue cats Delilah and Janice from Kirkby Cats Home, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatDelilah (left), Janice (right), Howard & Harriet, Casper and Twiglet.  Here are are some of the most recent homed Kirkby Cats that owe their new start to Cat Chat. Delilah was spotted when someone came to visit Howard and Harriet and the three left to start their lives together. No surprise here, the delectable Janice charmed her new owners after they had spotted her on our homing page, she has settled straight into her new life. Casper is a lucky older black lad who had been with us a while. Howard and Harriet have been with us all summer and although Harriet was timid their new mum and dad gave them both a chance.  Twiglet was traumatised and hiding even though she'd been with us months, however this didn't deter her new mum from giving her a chance. Twiglet's lucky escape from Kirkby is all down to her appearance on our homing page.

Rescue cat Mr Bradley Walsh from Bromley and District Cat Rescue, Bromley, homed through Cat Chat The gorgeous Mr Bradley Walsh has now gone to his new home. He was in such a poor state when we took him in, it's wonderful to see him both restored to health, and now off to a new life, with some lovely people who found us through Cat Chat. We're delighted for him - and them!

Sally and Mabel, Rescue cats from Bromley & District Cat Rescue, homed through Cat Chat Sally (left), Mabel (right), Ben, Grace, Primrose & Peony, Millie, Blossom & Bella, Sara & Betty plus two semi feral cats. It's been an emotional weekend, as no less than 13 cats have left us for pastures new - all to the same home! Many of these cats are quite nervous due to their past histories, which makes this even more amazing. They have been adopted by an incredibly caring lady, who found us through Cat Chat a few years ago, who has the experience and patience they need. As many of the cats have formed strong bonds with each other, it's fantastic that they are staying together.

iley, Jerry & Kitty from Rugeley Cats Society, Rugeley, homed through Cat ChatWonderful news! Miley, Jerry and Kitty were spotted on Cat Chat and have a new home together to live out their lives. These three all have FIP so finding a home to take them wasn't going to be easy.

Many thanks.

Katrina from National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, homed through Cat ChatA year ago a pretty cat was found unable to move on grass by some flats. Vets found it was suffering from a damaged pelvis and, after treatment, the cat came to us and we named her Katrina. After six weeks’ cage rest and weekly vet visits, we knew then she was progressing fine. In view if this history, we thought she should be an indoor cat in a quiet home. Thanks to Cat Chat putting Katrina on its website, we eventually found the right person for her and she is now happy in her new home, really being loved. It took time but was worth it. Thank you so much.

Lovely, lucky Bailey made a brief appearance on our Cat Chat Homing Page and has been snapped up. A surprise this one, as Mouse was timid but after being spotted on Cat Chat she was quickly adopted. After being overlooked time and time again, Minnow has fallen lucky thanks to Cat Chat.

We've also rehomed Dottie, Daisy and Bertie thanks to Cat Chat. The people actually wanted 2 cats and came to look at 3 we'd taken from the same house and decided they would have them all rather than split them. Thanks so much for your help.

Molly, Marty, Toby and Bessie from Bromley & District Cat Rescue, Bromley, homed through Cat ChatFour of our cats – Molly (left), Marty (right), Toby and Bessie – have been homed, all to the same home! They have gone to live with a lovely lady who found us through Cat Chat several years ago and adopted from us then. This time, she has gone the extra mile and taken on four of our longer-stay cats, three of which are quite shy. Molly has made herself at home right away, and we are sure the others will settle in in their own time. A great result, thanks for all your help.

Thank you for your help in making this happen.

black and white cat homed from Tain cats protectionMacca went to his very comfortable new home on Friday, with a really lovely couple. Let's hope he realises just how lucky he is, considering the awful surroundings he was in before he was rescued (house stinking, dirt and urine all over the floors, just a tea tray filled with biscuits to share with 20 other cats). He is now able to enjoy the next part of his nine lives. Another success for Cat Chat!!!! Keep up the good work. (Macca was featured on Cat Chat's Overlooked 15 campaign)

Rescue cat Teddy from Bromley & District Cat Rescue, Kent, homed through Cat ChatAmazing news – this time for our terrific Teddy. Teddy had been with us for a while as he had a badly broken back leg and needed weeks of cage rest, but he’s back on his feet now, and was more than ready for a proper home. Teddy and his new housemate Joshua are both lovely, laid-back cats, so they should be a good match and his new mum is thrilled with him!

Rescue cat Jasper from Burton-upon-Stather Cat Rescue, Scunthorpe, homed through Cat ChatJasper was straying near a school, and a lady who worked there was feeding him, but when the school closed for Christmas there was no-one to feed him and that is when he came into rescue. He was a lovely big friendly boy who loved to sit on your knee. Fortunately he was seen on Cat Chat by a family who had a lovely country home with lots of space for Jasper to explore. He took no time to settle and is adored by the family. Jasper has definitely found his forever home!

Thanks once again for your help.

Timmie had never even been inside a house, but three days into his homing after being spotted on Cat Chat and all is going well. We are hopeful things will work out.
