So pleased to see Megan now Rosie is having a lovely new life with Jane and Roger , it took several weeks but she has worked out the cat flap and thoroughly enjoys the garden and being able to pop back in whenever she wants to. The washing machine is something new for her and she is not as shy as she once was.
Freckles now Pickle is purr-fectly settled in her forever home,
they say she is fab. Pickle has had her pick of lovely cat beds but
her favourite place for a cat nap is a large box! She is a very
sociable cat her favourite hobby is supervising play time with her
young family in the garden. She'll settle down for a catnap in the
Pickle enjoys toys and chasing ping pong balls but also appreciates attention. It was nice to get a few strokes and a gentle purr from her at the follow up. Loves exploring the outdoors in the sunshine but never far away. Pickle likes to be near her slaves and is a responsive cat. She has bonded with everyone in the home. A very happy ending.
Formally named Mary this character cat has fallen on her paws with chicken and Sheba on offer. Her name was changed as her forever slave is called Mary! Likes lots of head scratches and chin rubs, Millie prefers one to one company, enjoys fuss on her terms but has started to become a lap cat. She has come a long way from hiding behind a sofa all the time, Mary's gained Millie's trust to pick her up. Millie has her corner of her slave's chair for watching television. She sometimes follows Mary around and knows when it's bed time, sprawled out on the floor all relaxed ready to be carried to bed curled up in the utility room. It was nice to see her accept Dreamies from her visitors at the follow up. A happy ending for Millie.
This striking mature moggy is queen of the office chair. Andrew
and Linda adopted Milly hoping she would be therapy for their cat
Plum who was struggling after the loss of his feline friend. They
are adjusting to life together, Plum has appreciated having a friend
around when their slaves are out. It was good to see her curled up
on her favourite chair at her follow up and she accepted a few
strokes. Milly is steadily getting used to her forever home and has
become purr-fect pals with Andrew, seeking him out for lots of
Her slaves accept Milly is a bit nervous at times but have spent a lot of time getting to know her and are glad they adopted this sweet little cat. She likes vigorous head strokes and having the freedom to come and go, exploring the garden, climbing the wall to have a nosy but Milly never goes far. Milly adores being brushed. It's nice that they are so relaxed around her. A happy ending for Milly.
This pretty puss has landed on her paws. She loves her food but
enjoys company even more. At the follow up visit she was only too
happy to greet her former fosterer. She has a favourite chair to sit
under and roll underneath. Maureen likes to show off with lots of
rolling, she dribbles with excitement! She paws her slaves for
attention and lets you know shes about. Maureen doesn't wander far
but sometimes explores outside to catch mice (much to her family's
disgust, but that's cats for you!) or be found watching the world go
by on the decking. Maureen squeaks at you for a chat and paws her
slaves to wake them up to let them know it's feeding time.
A sociable cat with visitors, she laps up lots of strokes and rubs round you. Maureen has her mad half hours but generally is a relaxed girl. She sits between her slaves on the sofa watching television. Will do anything for Dreamies. Peter and Paul say that she is lovely and so chilled out, she is a happy girl and much loved. Thank you for adopting this pretty puss.
This much loved gentle boy is gaining more confidence every day.
He likes to be near you and never wanders far. Reggie has bonded
well with his forever slaves. After considerable time being left to
fend for himself in his previous home, he is appreciating the
security of being part of a loving household. His sores and poor
coat have improved and he looks so much more handsome. Reggie likes
a chin scratch and having the freedom of the home to wander at
leisure, likes to get up high to be nosy. Reggie doesn't mind being
picked up and we think it won't be long before he becomes a lap cat.
He is a bit of a guard cat chasing off other cats! Reggie is quite the character who's got into some scrapes but they love him all the more for his funny antics. He has definitely fallen on his paws.
This handsome chap has grown in confidence with his forever slaves. He never wanders far and loves lots of attention. Monty wasn't sure of play time or the outside at first, but now he adores being in the garden pawing a football or a tennis ball. He will greet visitors and lap up head scratches and chin rubs, as home visitor Georgina discovered at the follow up. He likes to sit in the window watching the world go by. Monty is adored by his forever family, thank you for giving him a happy home.
Gentle, sweet natured Meg, formerly Susie has
settled in well. She has the loudest purr. Meg is gaining more
confidence every day. Her forever slaves say she is adorable and
definitely the boss of the two fellow rescues in her home. Susie
likes getting into little spaces and chases everybody around. She
enjoys stretching out. Susie is becoming more inquisitive around the
house and outside but is never far away. They say Susie is an
adorable little friend, in time they feel she'll become a lap cat.
Quite kitten like and mischievous, Susie enjoys digging plants and
collecting stones! We are so pleased that she is a purr-fect fit for
very understanding and clearly bonded slaves.
Lovely to have an update on Harriet now Hattie. Her new owners tell us she is an excellent companion and the perfect cat for them when they viewed her she had a litter of cute kittens but we were delighted they chose mummy cat She now has a beautiful silky coat knows her new name and comes running when called
Sophie formally called Zelda came as one of eight from a hoarder’s house, found to be pregnant, she was taken seriously ill and had an emergency c-section. Tragically, she delivered a deformed, deceased baby, yet when she came home this lovely cat immediately adopted five orphans. She's found a perfect home as her owner says she is a good match and enjoys company. She loves exploring outside and when she comes in she always asks her loving owner for a cuddle. She enjoys snuggling up to her owner and sleeps in her bed at night time. A happy ending to a sad story, thank you.
This lovely boy was adopted just before Christmas. As you can see he is a picture of happiness. He loves his new home and enjoys laying in the sun on the decking. Purrs for giving this handsome boy a happy home.

Indie has settled in really well and rules the roost at her home, including what she wants to eat. Enjoys exploring outside and watching the world go by on the windowsill. Has plenty of toys to keep her occupied during the day when her owners come in from work she enjoys snuggling up to them for a cuddle. Her owners say she’s the perfect pet and they love her like a child.
Formerly Victor & Victoria, this adorable pairing have blossomed into absolutely beautiful, well settled kittens as you can see from the photos. We are glad to see they are happy in their forever home.
Nellie (previously Ellie) is a purr-fectly playful character cat with lots of energy and personality. She rolled over and posed for her visitors, happily washing herself in front of them. Nellie loves to play with the many toys in her home and enjoys exploring the garden. She has also recently discovered the fun of climbing trees. Nellie and fellow former RSPCA cat Benji can be comical together and like to chase and play games with one another. They've settled down together now after an unsure start. Nellie has made a brilliant cat she is loving and is known to curl up on the end of her slaves bed. She can't get enough fuss, Nellie is a responsive, nosy puss, she likes to know what's going on and often sits in the window. Purrs to Ruth and Kevin for giving Nellie a very happy home.
This lovely former street cat has settled in smashing, according to his forever slave Susan. He loves to 'help' in the garden, enjoys play time in his tunnel, chasing balls, pawing string. His favourite is a well worn teaser fish toy. Loves attention and is purr-fectly sociable with Susan's family and friends of all ages. Buddy never strays far, he likes to watch the birds and is very nosy. On colder days he loves nothing better than rolling by the fire. This charming boy settles down on Susan's bed on a night, she says he has made a lovely little friend for her. Thank you for adopting him.
Last year the branch had the sad job of sorting a large number of
cats from a home where their owner had died .Rosie was one of them,
an older cat but fortunate to be adopted by a retired lady who she
has as a constant companion. This old girl has certainly fallen on
her paws she is adored. On arrival the home visitor found Rosie
taking a nap on her owners
bed and as the home visitor left salmon was being prepared for her tea. What a happy ending to a sad start, thank you for giving Rosie such a loving home.
Lily and Gabriel a cute sister and brother were adopted as tiny
kittens and are now six months old.They love playing and had lots of
toys, every one is pleased that they get along with the elderly
resident cat who seems to have gained a new lease of life since they
came along. They have just been neutered and very soon will be
introduced to the big outdoors .
These kittens have an owner who absolutely adores them. Thank you for giving them such a wonderful new home.
We have recently done a follow up visit for three cats who were adopted a few months ago. They have all settled in well, Robert loves exploring outside, Ori and cookie prefer to be indoors but they have just started going outside to explore. Their owner loves them all and they all get on really well. It was lovely to see them all so happy in their forever home, thank you.(pictured is Ori)
We are pleased to report Sparky who was adopted last spring from
the branch, is doing really well. He came in battered and bloody
from a tough life on the streets but now he is happy in a forever
home. Sparky loves his food and appreciates attention. A very
loving, laid back chap. His confidence has been boosted by the
arrival of a play friend, Lilly. He loves to play fight with her.
They have late night games running back and forth from the living
room and hallway, jumping over the sofa. Sparky is very much a cat
who loves cuddles.
Chloe said "I do have a kitten, Lilly, now and they get along great, he has come out his shell so much since I have had her. He does spend most of the time eating or sleeping, but he's happy so I'm happy"
Purrs to Chloe for adopting him and a thank you to Jill and Andy for helping Chloe with settling Sparky in.
They call him Teddy Bear as he is very affectionate and can't get
enough fuss. They were told on adoption last August that he was a
bit of a character, he is that, and more! He is a whirlwind with
lots of energy and a mischievous nature. Teddy has lots of toys,
he's very nosy and thinks the curtains are an activity centre. He
and Tippy, who was also adopted from the branch, are like siblings.
Teddy loves to wind him up but they do sleep in the same bed
Both cats will sit and give you a paw for treats. Teddy is a big baby he snuggles in your arms. He is lovely with the children and spends hours playing with them. His forever slave says he gets on with everyone in the home but he is particularly a daddy's boy to her partner Glen. Teddy likes to play with Helen's ear plugs and sit on the laptop. His forever family adore him for being a cheeky, cuddly boy. Purrs for adopting him.
Jessy has settled and is very happy in her new home, see video here..

We have recently done the follow up visit for Petal and are really pleased that she is doing so well and is really settled in her new forever home. Thank you for giving her a lovely home.
A lovely, laid back kitten who has grown into a loving, gentle
young cat who is purr-fectly bonded with his young family. He enjoys
going outside but never wanders far. When Oliver goes down for a nap
he is a lovely sofa surfing companion for Jessica. Whether it's
playing with Oliver until all the toys disappear under the sofa or
snuggling into his slaves dressing gown for a lazy morning he is
It was lovely to see how Theo was so laid back with everyone in the house from jumping up on the sofa with Jessica, sitting next to Oliver or enjoying attention from Jessica's partner Jonay. Like many cats he is a creature of habit and knows exactly when it's tea time, he has a good appetite. Theo usually goes to bed exactly the same time as the family whether its snoozing on the sofa or a catnap on their bed. Thank you to Jessica and family for giving this cuddly young chap a happy forever home.
Nell (formally Angel) has settled in really well at her new home, she loves playing and enjoys exploring outdoors. Nell greets her owners when they come home from work and she likes to share their bed on a night. Thank you for giving her a lovely new home.
Sid was a love at his follow up visit he greeted the home visitor and even sat on her knee Adopted six months ago he is described as a treasure and gorgeous . Sid came into the branch after he was abandoned on a popular dog walking path as a kitten so we are pleased that he has a loving home now, his owners are so happy with him he is very loving and has a wonderful purr.
Archie was a very frightened boy with a mark on his nose from panicking in a cat trap when he first came into care. He has now found a loving and very understanding forever friend in Carol. He is still nervous of new people. He has come on a lot as he wouldn't have come out at all to any visitors before. One to one however, Carol says he is a smashing companion cat. He loves having the freedom to explore the outside. Archie likes being brushed and loves his food. He was unsure what to make of Amy and Georgina's visit but a few strokes and he was sat with Georgina for head scratches and photographs. A happy ending for Archie.
Carrie has settled in her home really well. She loves being outside exploring the fields and bringing little presents home. Her new slave adores her and thinks Carrie is a great companion.
Her family say she took time to settle but they took it slowly and now she is the boss of the house, telling the other cat and dog where to go. Lily enjoys exlprin She is very greedy with her food always knows when the fridge is open and when food is being cooked. Her family adore her, she enjoys a cuddle now and again but this is on her terms.
Charlie had been living in someone’s garden for quite a
while, he had a few nasty wounds from living rough as a full tom.
Charlie could get very anxious and scratched his neck raw.
Now he is purr-fectly settled with Rosemary. He appreciates watching the TV and having cuddles on the sofa.
Charlie doesn't go far but can be found in the front garden cat napping under a model wheel barrow in good weather.
He can't get enough fuss and attention, particularly chin rubs and head scratches. He looks lovingly at his forever slave and responds to her call. He greets people he knows and is curious about other local animals but it's Rosemary's company he enjoys the most.
Charlie likes catnip so much so that one of his catnip toys is now black with slobber and dirt from enthusiastic play time! He still has his moments of being a bit shy but he has come a long way from the cat who hid on his first viewing. Rosemary said he is a lovely cat and she is really pleased with him, he is great company. Whether it's the bed or the sofa, Charlie goes where he wants and is clearly much loved. It was nice that he came up for a stroke and offered soft purrs during the visit. Thank you to Rosemary for having the patience and giving this charming boy a loving forever home.
This is Sparky who came into care in February (left) and this is
him now. He was in a very sorry state when he first came to the
attention of Goole RSPCA, bloodied, scared, unneutered and unloved.
Thanks to the dedication of his foster carers Jill and Andy he
became a gorgeous boy who appreciated having regular meals and lots
Sparky found a home with Chloe who took him on trial initially, she had never owned a cat on her own before. They kindly assisted with any queries or concerns she had and supported her with encouraging Sparky in his new surroundings. A lot of time, patience and dedication is put in to both the fostering and the adoption process. Purrs to the kind volunteers and understanding new forever homes who put so much effort in. It is lovely to see update photos and carry out follow up visits to see that the work has paid off by all involved.
Beth today now called Nancy has settled in well enjoys being outside now, chasing flies and finding objects. Loves to play. Definitely rules the roost as she lets her new owners know when she wants feeding to the point of helping herself to dreamies. She snuggles up to her owners on an evening & gets on well with the other cat at her forever home. Lovely to see her looking so happy, thank you.
The adopter came to adopt Sheba but Jeremy kept giving her the
eye and melted her heart so she took them both. They were enjoying
playing outside at the follow up but came for strokes and fuss.
Jeremy is now called Bertie, he and Sheba are purr-fect pals chasing
birds, squirrels and as you can see, appreciate exploring a lovely
Both have grown into lovely character cats enjoying their slave’s company and have befriended the resident old golden Labrador.
Bertie is cheeky, very inquisitive whilst Sheba prefers to relax and people watch.
Their owner is a painter and is planning to paint pictures of her cats, we look forward to seeing the finished projects! Clearly a very happy ending for these two.
A purr-fectly chilled puss who loves to play with everything and anything including toilet rolls! She has made friends with the dog and appreciates a sunny spot to bird watch. Gentle natured and sociable, she sat next to visitor Georgina during the follow up, happy to be stroked and pose for photos. Tilly can often be found on Tyler’s bed as although she gets on with all the family they are best friends. She never roams far and is responsive to her slaves. A happy home for a pretty little cat. Purrs to Rebecca and family for adopting her.
Both Wally (previously Amy) & Vera were adopted around six months ago at their follow up visit both cats had settled in really well. They both really enjoy going outdoors to explore & to chase any bugs they come across. They love to play and will demand food from the Hunan slaves constantly. Vera was feeling a bit camera shy but our volunteer got a photo of the gorgeous Wally.
This pampered puss has the full name Princess Isla. Her home is a
palace of toys and treats. She is best cuddle buddies with Max the
dog and loves to play with both her four legged friend and the two
legged slaves. She plays fetch, has lots of purr-fectly entertaining
tricks up her paw. Isla chirrups for food and attention. Her forever
family say they have never had a really playful cat before but Isla
definitely is full of fun and mischief. Isla is adored by her family
and she rewards them with lots of affection, sofa surfing with them
and providing lots of cute selfie poses!
Thanks to Michelle and family for adopting this pretty girl.
Following a recent follow up visit it was lovely to see how well these two have settled into their forever home. Mau prefers to be indoors but will go outside to explore and Bastet loves been outside chasing flies. They still love a cuddle in an evening and are both boss over the dog. Thank you for giving them a lovely home.
Josie was adopted by Mandi in autumn last year. She asked for a
confident character cat and she says she certainly got one! This
lovely girl is full of mischievous playfulness whether it’s climbing
the curtains, chasing a toy egg or taking over the sofa with her
purr-fect pal Meg the dog. Josie appreciates a stroke but it’s
cuddling up with Meg the dog every night that she appreciates the
most. Perhaps she even thinks she is a dog.
Josie was happy to be made a fuss of at her follow up visit and enjoyed showing off her mad games on the stairs and around the living room. Whether it’s sniffing visitor Georgina’s shoes or jumping in her bag Josie doesn’t miss a trick! Whilst she and the resident mature moggy Misty tolerate each other, Josie is very friendly with visitors and nothing fazes her. Mandi says she is a brilliant cat and loves spending time with her.
Purrs to Mandi and her furry family for taking on this full on feline!
Lovely to visit Priscilla who was adopted almost 6 months ago , her fosterer did the follow up visit and was delighted to receive a warm welcome from Priscilla . Priscilla showed how settled she was as she had a thorough wash on the windowsill and jumped on owners knee for this photo. That you to Priscillas adopters for giving her a loving home
We always enjoy following up the progress of our fabulous
felines. We were delighted to receive photos of Ozzy, now Martin who
was adopted last March, as his his adopter Sarah said he was so
lovely, he deserved to be famous!
Martin is described by his forever friend as a smasher, a much-loved furry gentleman. He's shy around strangers, but with those knows, he's affectionate and great company. He doesn't go out very often, just for a quick mooch around the garden, but he loves to play, have a fuss and then a sleep on the settee. Martin is a very handsome, contented fellow. We definitely agree that he and Sarah have landed on their paws with a purrfect match....
Thank you to Sarah for adopting Martin.
Lovely Charlotte was brought into foster care last year with kittens, she was quite thin but was a really good mum. After her kittens no longer needed her Charlotte was adopted and six months on it is amazing to see the difference in her. She has put weight on & her coat is beautiful. It is lovely to see her happy and thriving in her new home, thank you for giving her such a wonderful new life.
This lovely little girl was found wandering around a supermarket
car park as a kitten. Luckily for her the lady that rescued her also
adopted her. Now she is a picture of health and looks really happy
at her new home.
