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!

1 Year in Rescue

!! HOMED !!
Clara had been in the care of Bury's Stray Cat Fund, Suffolk for 1 year.

Clara cat from Bury's Stray Cat Fund rescue, SuffolkPretty, super-shy Clara has at last found the quiet, calm and experienced home she needed. Clara had a mysterious past, having been found over 100 miles from where she was microchipped, and no owner was ever traced. She then spent a year in rescue waiting for just the right person to understand her needs.

Four year old Clara isn't a lap cat, and needed someone willing to give her plenty of time to settle in, and accept that she might - or might not - one day join them on the couch! After a couple of weeks in her new home, her new owner told us: "Clara is doing very well now". We are sure this sweet girl will continue to grow in confidence, now that she has her perfect forever 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. Clara had several adoption enquiries via our campaign, although her eventual adopter came via a different source. Clara 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 Clara 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.”
