Our favourite page, the cats that were once in our care that have found happy homes through our re homing sceme....
Simons's Cats, Maisy and Teddy
Teddy was found shut in a box in a field and Maisy was living rough in a shed. They were adopted by our patron Simon Tofield, creator of Simon's Cat, and his wife Zoe.
Samuel stayed at Stray Cat Rescue almost a year after being found in a ladies garden in Luton as a kitten. When my partner and I decided a cat would make the home complete I didn't quite have visions of this little menace.
On viewing the cats Samuel shot out the pen and was climbing the walls desperate to explore and play. I attempted to stroke him only to have a paw slap my hand away, I tried again only to be met by the same response. He didn't exactly sell himself very well. So I paid attention to some of the friendlier cats whilst my partner kept entertained with Samuel's boisterous play.
After a lot of thought and a little convincing from my partner we decided Samuel needed to be given a chance as he was unlikely to find a home with his selling tactics.
Home check complete and very excited we set out to collect Samuel. This time he was really playing up and my daydreams of a purring cat curled up on my lap were quickly fading away. A little more persuasion from my partner that Samuel needed a chance the most, and the pretty tabby meowing and purring around my legs would find a home no problem, and the deed was done.
The boisterous lion arrived at his new home and was as scared as anything hiding under the bed for a good few hours, even allowing occasional strokes when he popped his head out to see his new world.
We have had Samuel, who we renamed Tigga, for 5 months now and I wouldn't change him for the world. He's definetly the quirkiest cat I've ever owned and has a biculiar fascination with gloves and pigeon feathers. He's turned out to be a real softie and loves a lap and a fuss. He still bites (not hard) and plays up from time to time but its his way of communicating after all he had once been a stray! Thanks to Stray Cat Rescue and Tigga for making my house a home.
We took Matthew from Stray Cat Rescue around a year ago now, he now goes by the name of Feilx, and I think you can see he is living like a King!!!
Simon and Archie
Simon and Archie were recently homed and we are so pleased they seem to have settled in perfectly.
In June last year we had to have our beloved cat Buttons put down the day after her 18 birthday. She had been with us since she was a kitten, together with her sister Taggie, who had died 2 years earlier. We have had cats for the last 24 years and the house seemed so empty, despite having two teenage children. I hated the empty bed on top of the boiler in the kitchen, I tried putting it away but that was just as bad. So I filled it with cuddly toy cats and kittens – of which we have plenty! I hadn’t realised how much I talked to Buttons, I hated being at home and coming back to an empty house.
We were desperate to adopt another cat or maybe two but had to wait until August when we were back from our holidays as we felt there wouldn’t be enough time for them to settle before we went away. We looked at all the websites and a couple of rescue centres and there were loads of cats and kittens.
We decided to home two kittens as our children had only lived with adult cats and knew they would love the experience. So when we returned from our holiday we looked in earnest, but where had all the kittens gone? We tried several branches of Cats Protection and the RSPCA but they either didn’t have two, or no boys (Tim wanted a boy) or didn’t return our calls. I rang round many local vets and was eventually given a number for Stray Cat Rescue.
Cheryl was so helpful from the start and I took the children to view a black and white tom (Sonic now Top Cat) and a white with tortoiseshell dots girl (Bayley now Bailiee), both about 10 weeks old.
Needless to say we fell in love with them immediately! They were so tiny and we felt so nervous as they seemed so fragile compared to Buttons. They were very confident and playful. Cheryl also had another little black and white kitten, Belle, who was so cute. I picked her up and cuddled her and she fell asleep in my arms.
I’m sure you can guess the result. Yes, we took all three, we couldn’t bear to leave little Belle on her own without her two friends that she had grown so close to and who looked after her. Top Cat and Bailiee had come from a loving home but Belle had not been so lucky and Cheryl had worked hard to get her fit and healthy.
We couldn’t home them immediately as we were off on a camping trip for a few days and arranged to pick them up the day after our return. The trip was a disaster due to torrential rain and near hurricane winds which wrecked our tent. We weren’t disappointed to leave early though as that meant we could pick up our new babies a day earlier than planned.
They made themselves at home as soon as we opened the cat basket and our house felt like a home again! They have been with us for over 6 months now and we have loved (nearly!) every minute of it. They are little monsters, I cannot believe how much mischief they get up to. We don’t regret having all three of them but it has definitely been triple trouble. Top Cat likes to scratch the wallpaper and Belle rips it off with her teeth! Belle also chews and rips any piece of paper she can find, luckily no homework – yet! Top Cat chews plastic bags and has run off with my packed lunch and items from the shopping several times. They all like to sit on the shoe rack and knock all the shoes on the floor. Various items disappear and turn up in the strangest of places e.g. the washing up sponge ended up in the cat bed, were they using it as a pillow? Top Cat used to climb on the washing airer and pull all the washing off. The worst they have done is to somehow turn the grill on in the night! Luckily we have an electric cooker so not as dangerous as gas. Now I have to remember to turn off everything before I go out or go to bed. We had only had black cats before and never really noticed fur on our clothes, but we now notice white fluff everywhere! Then there’s the food and vets bills – but you can’t put a price on all the love and happiness they give us.
Despite all their naughtiness we all love them dearly. Top Cat is Tim’s cat, Bailiee belongs to Emily and Belle is my baby. But my husband Roger shares them all and can often be seen in the evenings surrounded by them, one under his feet, one on his lap and another by his side. He lets them get away with murder! Talking of which we have only had one dead animal so far. Top Cat brought in a blackbird the other day – the first of many I expect. We don’t regret having all three of them, they are such good friends and frequently groom each other. They are such gorgeous bundles of fluff. Top Cat loves Tim and talks to him and Roger very loudly. Bailiee is also very chatty and loves everyone, especially Emily. Belle is still our baby, but a very tubby one, weighs nearly a kilo more than the other two. She loves everyone and you can still pick her up, cuddle her and she’ll fall asleep in your arms.
Cheryl is so wonderful with all the kittens in her care. She gives them so much love and attention and I know she misses them dreadfully when they leave. Even if they have had a bad start to their little lives she manages restore their health and confidence. Through our love of cats and kittens we have now become great friends and spend fortunes texting stories and photos of moggies.
BelleBailieeI have just helped home two more to a good friend who lives in my village. My sister has just had to have her cat Kirsty put down. She was the sister to our Buttons and Taggie and was nearly 19. My sister has had cats for the last 30 years but her husband says “no more cats”. I’ll talk him round, if not he’ll come home one day and find one or two already there!
Ben and Billy We were lucky enough to rehome Ben & Billy in late November last year. Both are black & whites - Ben being about 3 years old, and Billy being just a baby. Chaos ruled when we got home - Ben (who we knew was a rather nervous boy) spent the 1st 3 days under the settee in the conservatory - and Billy just looked for trouble to get into - he climbed curtains, he swung off blinds, he tried to get into places he really shouldn't (fridge, washing machine), he walked down banisters.....and at Christmas, climbed the tree! When Ben came out, we knew we'd turned a corner....ok, so if the doorbell rang, he ran away & hid, but he was slowly getting braver.
Seven months on we can't imagine life without them. Ben has mellowed rather, and although still a little wary, loves fuss & cuddles & doesn't run away unless something like a loud noise or sudden movement really spooks him- he is 'gentle Ben', sleeps on the beds, and sometimes sits on the top of doors (he seems to like being high up inside) Billy, on the other hand, is a proper little sod. He tries to rule the roost. If there's trouble anywhere- he will be in the thick of it. He's a brilliant mouser, and loves climbing - he's even been to the top of the roof - he sits on the ridge tiles & chatters to the birds on the chimney - who look most confused.
Hello, We got this very affectionate female cat from your rescue center about 6 months ago. She didn't have a name, so we named her Raty. She is ubelievably affectionate to the point that we've never seen her show any signs of annoyement, like shaking her tail, hissing, scratching or biting. She's got quite a personality though as she knows what she likes in terms of food and rapidely turned out to be a real killing machine, brining mice or birds home on a regular basis, sometimes serveral times a day ... I guess that's what cats are supposed to do. After half a day inspecting the house, Raty clearly liked it and is now entirely part of our family. She's really good with our 1.5 year old son who doesn't hesitate to cover her with a cloth and lay his head on her ... and she still goes and rubs herself on his legs a few minutes later. I've attached a picture from earlier this summer.
Several weeks ago we decided that we'd look for another feline companion. We came across Stray Cat Rescue. On visiting their premises, we were discussing the cats whilst this handsome black and white boy was wrapping himself around our legs and smothering us with kisses! He so wanted a home so badly, and so home he came! Whilst in care he was called Andre but we have renamed him Mario, he likes his new name and responds to it well, especially when the children call him 'Super Mario'!!
On arrival at his new home, Mario came out of his carrier quite happily. He did spend the first night behind the sofa but hasn't looked back since. He is such a loving cat, just like a teddy bear. His nature is fabulous, so soft and sweet and he absolutely loves to be handled… he washes himself continually, loves his toes being tickled and even enjoys his visits to the vet! He loves people and is great with our young children. He had been in care for about 6 months, but he used the litter tray straight away and enjoys the home, it's as though he was always meant to be here. He even tries to get under the duvet at night for snuggles! He is now going outside and enjoying exploring. His paws became a little sore to start with as he wasn't used to being outside, but they have healed up nicely now. He comes home when we call him and has got to know his new neighbourhood very well indeed, he has made friends with the big ginger cat who lives next door and they can regularly be found sunbathing together!
We have an older female cat too who 'tolerates' him but we're sure she secretly loves him as she has been showing him how to use the cat flap ; ) They are such a great pair, both black and white, the only noticeable difference is that Mario has a pink nose and Stripes has a black one.
We are so delighted with Mario, he immediately became a valuable member of our family and we are grateful to Stray Cat Rescue for their help and support. We will continue to recommend them to people interested in adopting a cat.
Hello,We adopted Layla our beautiful black kitten a couple of weeks ago and she has settled right in. Layla has made friends with our big Black Labrador Alfie and is now bossing him about! Alfie knows who is boss! We also have got Harry which we got a week ago and he is a delight to our family although he was shy at first and a bit scared of everyone he has now come out of his shell and is playing with all his toys! Layla was sooooooooo pleased to see him and licked him all over. They both snuggle up together and are best friends. A big thank you to Vicky for all of the hard work she has done and has now the kittens have completed our family. They are a joy to have!
Milo and Simba
We fell in love with Milo and Simba on 23rd September 2011, they were found in a bin abandoned by their mum.
They are now 12 weeks old, and they are so cute and cuddly! Very healthy, lively loving kittens. They meow and meow so loudly when they want their dinner! And sleep most of the day, but when they want to play, they don't half play! We can tell them apart, by the fact Milo has one patch on his left eye, and Simba has almost asymmetric patches on his face. They are very happy, and have settled in so well! It only took them a day or two, and they were climbing up our legs! We keep them downstairs in the kitchen when we go to sleep, and they don't whine at all! Not even on the first night, I think it definitely helped getting two! They play fight constantly, and always snuggle up to each other when they get sleepy, and if they get bored they have each other. Quite a lot of the time, one will be sleeping, and the other one will put his arm round him, and they will both lie there happily! We couldn't imagine life without our little kittens now, thank you Stray Cat Rescue, we strongly recommend them to those looking to adopt a cat/kitten.
Gracie and Wilma
Hi everyone at Stray Cat Rescue,
In January, after contacting Stray Cat Rescue and speaking with Beverley, I went along to choose a cat to come and live with me, following the death of my beloved Milly in November, who was 23 years old.
Milly had been a tortoisehell and white cat, and I was keen to have another who would remind me of her, so I went to see first Gracie and then Wilma, who were both around 18 months old. As you can imagine, it was impossible to choose between them, and my daughter, who was with me, suggested I might take both of them. I instantly agreed, as they were both so beautiful and didn't seem to object to being cuddled, even though they didn't know me, which I thought was a good sign.
When they arrived at home, I though maybe they might be a little uncomfortable with each other, as they hadn't been kept together before, but they got on from the beginning and there's never been a paw raised in anger! Although they were a bit shy at first, they now love to come and see whoever is visiting and are great with my three young granddaughters.
Both of them are so affectionate and funny and have brought me so much happiness. I can't thank Stray Cat Rescue enough for taking them in when they needed help, otherwise I would never have had the chance to meet them and make them part of the family.
With best wishes and thanks,
Hi Saoirse, Bev, Michelle and the rest of the team!
Well, it's been nearly two weeks now since we brought home Ginge, who we have renamed Monty. He has settled in ever so well and has been very well-behaved.
What a gorgeous little (or maybe that should be "big") boy he is! From the moment we saw him on the website I knew he was the one. When we visited the shelter we found out about his sad past but it didn't deter us. Monty was quiet but enjoyed being stroked. He was, as Bev suggested, likely depressed from having been at the shelter for so long.
Other more actively affectionate cats caught our attention, but my heart remained with Monty and Anthony was also fond of him. Our cat wish list included friendliness (check), OK to be picked up (check), affectionate (check, albeit he was very reserved/quiet). We also wanted a cat that would love to sit on our laps and play. We didn't know if Monty would do this. However, determined to give him a better life and a forever home, we chose to adopt him.
Well, what can I say - Monty is our dream cat. He chats (especially when I am trying to do my work!), snuggles up to us (especially me - such a mummy's boy!), plays with his toys, scratches the big post that Anthony made especially for him and loves being groomed. He also does funny things like launching his head, full-speed ninja-style, into our cereal bowls for some sneaky milk!!!
Please find attached some photographs of his Lordship Monty Ebeneezer Marmaduke - the cat that got the cream. Or should that be leftover cereal milk?!
With kind regards,
Michelle & Anthony
Kildaire, now Timmy
Timmy was adopted by one of our lovely new volunteers Alice. He has settled in brilliantly with his new cat freinds. The vet found he has a heart murmur but Alice will look after him wonderfully.
PoppyThis is poppy she is now 7 yrs we got her from stray cat rescue she was being looked after by jean in her home. Karen
Missy and Tom
Snowflake (now Missy) and her son Mr Tumnus (now Tom) in their new lovely home.
Narnia came in as a kitten with her mum and siblings. Her mum (now Missy)and brother (now Tom) were adopted together. Narnia stayed with our volunteer kitten fosterer Sherri Jeffries.
Marcus (now Albie)
We love that he's part of the home now. He really seems to have taken to us. Brendan and him have done lots of playing. tires them both out! Hehe. But Albie loves cuddles with me. Ria Jeffrey.
To Bev & the team. A massive Thank You, as you can see Poppy is already very relaxed after adopting her 3 days ago, she's very affectionate and likes to snuggle up to my neck and claw me haha i plan on cutting her claws as i have a very sore neck/shoulder.
She's settled in really well, just the task of introducing her and Layla my housemate's cat now but will take that one slowly. They have had a brief meeting and other than the normal cat growls they didn't seem to bother much and just kept to themselves. Thank You so much for all the volunteers help, they were all so friendly and helpful especially Bev & Peter.
Evie and Gizzy
As you can see Evie and Gizzy are settling into their new home. Mum tried to keep them in for a few days but they were having none of it. Evie is still very shy but she loves a fuss. Gizzy is very outgoing and he will sit on your lap for hours. He is also a bit of a show off and loves having his photo taken. But Evie is definately the boss.
June and Ron
Howard enjoying his first saturday morning in his new pad - Helen.
Mr Fatty and Sola
Hello. I just wanted to pass along an update on Mr Fatty and his sister. We have been calling them Moose and Mouse, but that may not stick. They are both doing very well. They spent a few days in our bedroom, before starting to venture out at night to see the rest of the house. It's all a very exciting new adventure, and they are having a grand time with all the toys in the cat basket! Moose loves catnip and takes most of the toys out every night. Mouse spends more time under the bed than he does, but has been feeling more secure and spending more time adventuring. Both have been very affectionate and love to have their bellies rubbed. They are eating well (especially the Moose cat) and seem to be happy. They love to run around like maniacs at night! We are enjoying the new additions to our family and looking forward to many happy days together.
Lennie and Sidney
Thought you might like to see this picture of Sidney relaxing in his favourite place on the back of the sofa. And little Lennie sitting in his bed looking adorable. Both are settling in beautifully with no problems with my other cats (they all stare at each other and then stalk off to their favourite places to sleep).
This is Berry, she is now 15 weeks old and an absolute delight. When we brought her home, apart from the first hour of timidly looking around, she settled in immediately, although our 6 year old tabby is still ignoring her!
Berry has lots of energy and always has a mad spell early evening, which provides great entertainment. She hides under a chest of drawers, her favourite spot. I can’t tell you how long we frantically searched the house for her just to find her little head appear from underneath.
Its amazing how quickly you can’t remember life without them!
Dexter (was Timmy)
Hi pussy cats & humans at Stray Cat Rescue.
I thought it was about time I let you all know how I'm getting on in my new home. I've been here now with the Hodges family since June 2012 and I love it. I was called Timmy when I was in the rescue centre but now have the very impressive name of Dexter. Mum & Dad Hodges & their daughter, Becky, were heartbroken over the death of their "little man" a handsome ginger cat called Tigger. They fell in love with me as soon as our eyes met! They tell me I helped fill a cat shaped hole in their hearts. I live with a lovely, black & white, delicate princess of a pussy cat called Fifi. She likes to think she is in charge. We love to play chase through the house, especially running after each up & down the stairs. I love to chat and have some really in depth talks with my human family. I love watching TV, my own cushion, having my tummy rubbed, my big box of cat toys and lovely big garden. I am sooo happy and now weigh an impressive 5.5kgs and I am now about 6cm taller than Fifi at the shoulder. Thank you for looking after me while I was with you & thank you for making sure I found the right family. All in all my life is now Purrrrfect.
Akira (was Gabby)
She's doing so well… taking everything in her stride and even enjoying our regular car rides to see the in-laws! We got a 4 month old kitten last week to keep her company, he's a happy-go-lucky Bengal and we've called him Kanai. They're still just getting used to each other but doing well and we're sure they'll be the best of friends. Akira's always "top cat" and we love her to bits Sending our love to all at the shelter, we think of you often!
Louise & Lisa Bartram

Louis (was Gummy Bear)
He has settled in nicely. He's claimed the sofa and very rarely moves off it. He is such a sweet cat. He's let my Labrador and Golden Retreiver know who is boss. Anita.
Jess (now Macy)
Jess was dumped by a farm gate whist pregnant! After a long time in foster care she has now found her furrever home;
''Hi Sue, Just had to let you know how pleased we are with our little cat Jess – who we have decided to call Macy. She is really loving and affectionate and is a little purr box. She has settled into her temporary upstairs room really well.After exploring every nook and cranny (as they do) she found her way under the duvet on the bed and stayed there purring – so we let her rest. Then she played tunnels, sat on the windowsill looking out of the window, had a lovely scratch at her scratch post and played with her catnip mouse. She has eaten two small meals and drunk some water and seems totally unperturbed by the move – in fact she has hardly stopped purring and I think she is in love with my slippers. She has just taken herself off to bed in her den – a big cushion under a table draped with a quilt - so we have said night- night for now.''
Mabel (now Miss Snuggles)
I was totally unprepared, in so far as not having a litter tray, nor litter. My decision to adopt her was really spontaneous, after seeing her photo on the SCR website. In those days she was called Mabel, but it just proves how effective the SCR website is in finding potential new homes. Holly clearly wants to play with Snuggles, and when the latter dashes around in a playful mood, Holly tries to join in, and cannot understand why Snuggles isn’t like herself – still a playful crazy young adult.
She needed three teeth extracted, but they were not keen to operate until she put some more weight on. She only weighed 2.89kgs. So I just fed her whatever she would eat, which included gourmet pate, coley, chicken slices and single cream. Clearly not a long term diet but it seemed to work. Her weight is now 3.20kgs
She has had her first set of inoculations’, plus her microchip inserted. Unfortunately it slipped out, and she had to be “chipped” again!
I have never had a cat that didn’t get distressed by her trip to the Vets, but Snuggles almost seems to enjoy the experience. She never cries on the journey, and enjoys looking at the passing countryside as we drive there. She even purrs in the quiet waiting area in the surgery.
Snuggles first 50 days have passed quickly and successfully. She is a very happy & contented little lady, who has made me smile more than I could ever have imagined.
We all know that all of our cats enrich our lives more than we can say.
Whiskey has also got a very unusual liking for water. On the night before his surgery when he couldn't have anything to eat he splashed most of the water out of his dish all over the kitchen. He did this 3 times before we went to bed. He also goes loopy when we put on the washing machine. First he stands up at the powder drawer as he can hear the water going in there and then he will start to run round the house leaping at the door latches as he goes. We have to shut the kitchen door to stop him doing this. We used to leave the bathroom door slightly ajar when I had a shower as Greg has to help me. Whiskey has started to put his head around the shower curtain and then again he would go hurtling around the house so we have to shut this door too.I checked online about cats with this liking for water and it looks like he has a large percentage of Turkish Van cat in him. They are also known as the swimming cats as they love water and will swim in ponds and lakes if they are warm enough. Whiskey also has the coat characteristics of the Van cats as he doesn't have any down undercoat and his fur feels so silky. This is another characteristic of the Van cats so that their coats dry quickly and his fur does dry very quickly.
Depending on the amount of Van cat in him he could grow to be a 6 - 7kg cat so there is no wonder that his paws are so big. He also has the slightly pointed ears just like a Van cat.
Van cats also only have a quiet miaow and Whiskey does. Most of the time he just chirrups to us and is very cuddly, especially with me when I have been out of the house, even if it is only for 5 minutes. We have had a Burmese cat and a Siamese cat before and Whiskey has the same personality traits of a pedigree cat.
Thank you so very much for letting us have Whiskey as we wouldn't part with him now for anything. He really is part of our family now and I really love him.
Penny and Sonnet (now Betty)
Hi all at stray cat rescue, I just wanted to update you on the Sonnet and Penny's first month with us; Sonnet has now been renamed Betty and loves her new name and her new home! she's taking a while to settle in which we expected since she was at the rescue for so long, she's beginning to trust us more and gets up on the sofa for a cuddle and gets into the bed with us, she loves snuggling under the duvet and being the centre of attention! She also dribbles when she's stroked and is purring away (and dribbling) on my lap as I write this. Penny is like a tiny tornado... She has wrecked the house and is making the most of being a kitten now she's got so much room to run around! After spending about £80 on toys her favourite thing to do is play with a golf ball- or a carrot- she doesn't have time for cuddling at the moment as there is too much exploring to do but we do get the occasional stroke when she is tired out from all her running around. All in all we are so happy with our girls, thank you stray cat rescue for introducing us to our beautiful kitties!!
Wilfred (now Cauley)
We have had Cauley for 3 weeks and he is a totally different cat to the one we first saw. The first time we saw him he ran away from us and cowered when we tried to stroke him. Whilst trying to decide between him and BC (who was much friendlier!) a family came in who were obviously interested in BC so that helped us make our mind up. We felt Wilfred would benefit from a quiet and loving home and that when he felt comfortable he would come out of his shell. His first few days he was very nervous and spent most of the time hiding, although on his second day he did come over to me for a stroke and rubbed his head against my nose. Over the last few weeks he has got braver and braver and spends all his time with us now, he didn't even hide when my in-laws came to visit! He is extremely affectionate and spends lots of time lying in my arms purring loudly (as he is in the picture) and following me around the house meowing until I sit back down so he can have another cuddle! He really is the most loving cat I have looked after.
People should definitely give a shy and nervous cat a chance because all they really want is a nice comfy home where they will be loved and in return they give so much love and affection back
Tipsy (now Lazlo)
We are so, so happy with him. I rang after
Christmas having finally taken the decision that we needed a pussycat in our
lives, and spoke to Bev about what sort of cat we wanted. We popped down, she
showed us a couple of likely suspects, and although he seemed shy, we decided
to give Tipsy a go. Renamed Lazlo by my three year old, he has settled in amazingly.
I prepared a quiet space in the spare room, opened his carrier, and wandered
off to let him come out and hide until he felt ready. 45 seconds later, he was
in our arms on the sofa purring loudly, and that was that. His evening routine
is to follow my daughter up to bed and sit with her until she goes to sleep. He
then comes out and stands guard until I go to bed, then comes and kips on my
head for the rest of the night!
His little pal is a bit over affectionate at times, but he is utterly placid,
and follows her around like a lamb, chatting away the whole time. I am totally
amazed anyone would give him up - he was desperate for love, and a little
affection has made him into the most fantastic companion. He sits on the edge
of the bath to make sure I don't go too far, and has to be persuaded that a lap
in the bathroom is not for occupying! Their loss though - he is very much the
man of our house, and I wouldn't have it any other way. He loves all his toys,
ignores his bed in favour of mine or a ratty old cardboard box, and has put on
some weight. We haven't yet let him out, as the weather has been terrible and
he is such a delicate looking little boy, but I don't expect he'll go far. Well
pleased with how SCR matched us up to such a happy little puss, and will keep
urging all my pals to rescue rather than get a kitten from elsewhere - no
problems with the litter box, diet or behaviour, just the perfect mog. Thank
Pebbles has settled into our home nicely and has become best friends with his little owner Ellie :)
Tawny and Heidi
''We adopted our beautiful kittens Tawny and Heidi a couple of weeks ago. When they are not chasing around the house, they love to snuggle up together for a snooze. Thank you so much foster carer Vickie for all your help, advice and caring for them when they were tiny. We love them so much.
Vickie is a lovely lady with a huge heart and we are so pleased to have them. They have made our new house 'home'. xxx''
''Think it's safe to say that Ralf has settled in very well after only a couple of days with us! We're delighted to have adopted such a brilliantly settled kitten'' Kirsty Harris
Here is Babs (one of Beverley Sisters) all settled in with our family! She is brilliant with the children and they adore her. Helen.
Sparkle now Pom pom
''Hi! I just wanted to share our 'happy ending' story with you. We came to the to the shelter just last weekend and took home the gorgeous Sparkle, now known as Pompom! From the moment she stepped out of her carrier she was right at home. She had a little mosey around to get her bearings and then happily started playing and rolling around with her new toys, bless her! She is such a good girl and so affectionate - she loves a good fuss and cuddles! She's just perfect and were so happy she has settled in so quickly. Thank you to Bev and all of the wonderful volunteers at Stray Cat Rescue - you all do such an incredible job!
We love our little bundle of fluff!
Amy & Adam''
