twenty for 2020 campaign

Working with hundreds of rescues across the UK and Ireland, throughout 2020 we will be identifying those cats who have been in rescue care for the longest time. By highlighting these deserving cats through nationwide publicity and social sharing we aim to reach their perfect person. Your Share, Tweet or Post could do it.

Rachel (Macclesfield)

Rachel has been in the care of RSPCA Macclesfield, South East Cheshire & Buxton for a year and a half.

rachel black cat needs a home macclesfieldHaving a bad day? Rachel will put a smile on your face! She's a curious cat both in her quirky character and inquisitive nature. Set to flourish in a home as an only pet, Rachel dreams of living her life to the full. An active girl, if she were a track and field athlete, she'd be an Olympic gold medalist. With no fear of heights, any tasty morsel left out on a counter is hers for the winning.

Owned a cat like Rachel before? Then you'll soon work out some terrific games to play whilst building her trust. In Rachel's world, this needs to be earned. Abandoned by her last family, without any food or water, she's lucky to be alive.

So ... on your mark, get set ... contact the rescue!

As part of Cat Chat's twentieth anniversary celebrations, Rachel will be homed with a parcel of goodies including HiLife Cat Food, a personalised cat collar from Kitty Collars and Feliway to help her adjust to her new life. All cats featured in the campaign are vet checked, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before adoption.

dr pete wedderburn“I am delighted to support Cat Chat and their important 'Twenty for 2020' campaign. The 20 most overlooked cats in UK rescue, deserve to be taken out of shelters and into good homes, and that's exactly what this campaign will achieve.

Cats are sentient creatures, just like us, and they can make such wonderful companions. Sadly, they are often misunderstood: a badly behaved cat is more likely to be a badly misunderstood animal than an inherently difficult creature. Just as with human companions, "every old sock finds an old shoe": one person's challenging pet is another's perfect puss. I know that my own cats add an immense note of calm, pleasure and fulfillment to my life, and I'd encourage everyone to give cat ownership a go.”
