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 6 Months in Rescue

!! HOMED !!
Oscar had been in the care of Independent Cat Rescue, Manchester for over six months.

oscar from Independent Cat Rescue manchesterThanks to your help, Oscar has found his perfect home. His wish to find a mature cat-loving, indoor home to call his own has finally been granted!

This perky, pensioner puss continues to be a curious cat, who is equally keen to give companionship as receive it. He likes to look his best, and loves his fur being brushed. Oscar offered all the perks of cat company without the calamity of a kitten.

Oscar can now enjoy his favourite passtimes of stretching out a sunny windowsill or curling up in front of a warm fire, all in his very own home. 

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. All cats featured in the campaign were vet checked, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before adoption.

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

suzi perry“I am proud to be supporting Cat Chat and their splendid 'Twenty for 2020' campaign. Throughout the year we will be highlighting the 20 most overlooked cats in UK rescue, helping them out of shelters and into homes.

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.”
