twenty for 2020 campaign

To mark Cat Chat's 20th Anniversary, our 'Twenty for 2020' campaign aimed to find homes for the 20 most overlooked cats in the country.

In fact, our campaign helped find homes for many more than 20 overlooked cats over the year. Helped by the shares, tweets and posts by our wonderful supporters nationwide, 2020 turned into a terrific year for hundreds of long-stay cats who moved out of rescue care and into loving permanent new homes.

We are delighted to report that all of these very special campaign cats featured below are now living happily with their new owners and enjoying life to the full. What a super way to celebrate Cat Chat's 20th year!

Over 3 years in rescue

!! HOMED !!
Swt (Soot) had been in the care of Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre, Caernarfon for over three years.

Friendly, sweet natured Soot has at last found the perfect country home she dreamed of. Having spent over three years in rescue this sprightly 8-year-old girl caught the eye of her adopter by striking one of her favourite poses - the flop and flaunt!

Her new owner told us: "She has been with us since 23rd May and has made herself perfectly 'at home'. We have a large hilly garden 2.5 miles outside of Dolgellau in Gwynedd, with plenty of paths to follow. Swt has already brought us several mice during her daily wanders up and down the grassy banks."

As part of Cat Chat's twentieth anniversary celebrations, all cats adopted from our campaign were homed with a parcel of goodies including HiLife Cat Food, a personalised cat collar from Kitty Collars and Feliway to help them adjust to their new life. Soot received several adoption enquiries via our campaign, although her eventual adopter came via a different source. Soot still received her parcel of goodies of course; and we are delighted for her!

Our Twenty for 2020 campaign ran throughout the year (and into early 2021) and helped many cats like Soot to find a new, loving and permanent home.

Some of these cats have been in rescue care for several years. Seemingly invisible to adopters, due to their colour, age, health, nervousness or behaviour quirks. Often they are just craving someone who truly understands them and can transform their life. If you have space for a new feline friend, please take a look at these most deserving cats.”
