Lucy & Pringle, from Kirkby Cats Home, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatLovely little Lucy (left) only spent a week at Kirkby, the day she went on our Cat Chat homing page she was spotted and she moved on to pastures new the day after that - a real result! After a New Year surge, homing has calmed down but we are delighted to report that after a year in the rescue our long-term older boy Pringle (right) has found a new family after being spotted on Cat Chat. Pringle has settled in straight away, made friends with the dog and can't believe his luck.

Felix, from Kirkby Cats Home, Nottingham, homed through Cat ChatFelix had been with us for around 18 months, he didn't like other cats and limped badly which xrays and tests gave no explanation for, he just limped which put people off. However it was New Year new start for Felix and he landed on at least three paws when the limp was overlooked by a young lady who wanted to give him a chance. Our longest starring Cat Chat cat is now off our homing page!

Babe from Neutering4paws, Wigan, homed through Cat ChatNeutering4paws would like to thank you.  It's a very big thank you for helping us home Babe, who had been in our care for 2 years.  No one had come to see her although she was a loving cat; she was shy and this put people off but thankfully a couple have given Babe a chance, with another indoor cat we had in our care.  Both Babe and Pringle have been in their new home for 3 weeks and have settled in really well and this has made our little rescue's year.

Peter from Celia Hammond Animal Trust, Canning Town, homed through Cat ChatAfter reading about the Overlooked 15 campaign on the Cat Chat website, we contacted Celia Hammond to ask about its overlooked moggies. We are delighted to say we have adopted a handsome chap who’d been looking for a home for around a year. He was called Peter, but we’ve renamed him Rigby. He’s missing the odd ear tip, but we think he’s so handsome and very sweet too. The Overlooked 15 appeal definitely helped push us towards a “priority’” cat – particularly a black and white cat. Without Cat Chat, we definitely wouldn’t have ended up with our new boy. We love him so much! Cat Chat rocks!

(adopted from) Celia Hammond Animal Trust, Canning Town

Cuddles from Marjorie Nash Cat Rescue, Amersham, homed through Cat ChatThe lovely Cuddles at last has a chance of getting some after being spotted on our Cat Chat homing page and then offered a lovely new home of her own. We're so very pleased for her, thank you Cat Chat!
