Happy Endings 2016


Kipper came into our care having been abandoned by his owner. He was living under shrubs for some months before he was reported to us, and brought into foster. After a few weeks in foster he found a loving new home in Bedford.
He was rehomed in December 2016.




This lovely chap came into our after he was struggling to adapt to a home with other cats. As a black cat you would expect him to be hanging around wouldn’t you.  It took 3 days before Bumble was reserved and he was in his new home within 3 weeks! He was rehomed in December 2016.



This sweet girl came into our care in November 2016, as her owner’s could no longer cope. It came as no surprise, that she found her forever home quickly and was rehomed in December 2016.





Benji had been living in shelters in someone’s back garden for several weeks, and was so scared the only way to get into foster was by humanely trapping.  That took nearly 14 days as Benji was so nervous of people.
We were wondering what may have happened to Benji to be so scared of people, but sadly having been neutered and spent a few weeks in care it became clear that whatever had happened to Benji he wasn’t prepared to change his ways and that’s fine with us.  So we found Benji a lovely stable yard in Buckingham where he has a lovely barn to call his own and receive regular food and has people keeping a watchful eye over him.  He is loved and safe but on his terms.


This lovely chap came into our care with the name “Demon Cat”. Henry was a stray for a long time, and refused point blank to co-operate with us or the vets! Left as an entire tom and being 7 years old his behaviour was ingrained and his aggression meant we placed him at the same stable yard as Benji.

This beautiful girl was admitted into our care in early September, having been found on the streets severely malnourished. She part of her nose and upper lip missing.

Prinny was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism shortly after coming into care, but took it all in her stride!

Luckily, she has found a loving home to spend the final chapter of her live, by the seaside! Prinny was adopted in November 2016.




This beautiful girl came into our care after she was saved from being sold on Gumtree, she settled into foster care, and luckily has found the perfect companion where she will enjoy a nice quiet, and loving home. Luna was rehomed in November 2016.


These 3 beautiful fluffballs came into our care in October 2016, there’s no surprise that they were snapped up quickly and they went to their forever homes at the start of November.


This chap came into our care on the 16 August 2016. As he was playing chicken on a very busy road, and had quite a severe injury to his eye.
Bobby required an operation to rectify the problem caused to his eye, luckily he recovered quickly.
He found his forever home in October 2016.

Reported to us on the 11 August 2016 as his owner had died, and he was living on the street trying to get into the neighbour’s homes.
Leo is 10 years of age, he has one eye and four teeth! He is a lovely boy, and very affectionate.
He met his purrrfect owner in October 2016, and moved into a loving home.
Trevor was reported to us in August 2016.  He had been living in someone’s back garden for a few months and was beginning to struggle with living outside.

We went out and visited Trevor and he showed signs of being a much loved cat.  He was just a little grumpy having not been neutered and not chipped but that was it.

We were concerned with how Trevor was particularly the condition of his coat, the fact that he wasn’t particularly welcome by the others cats that lived nearby so we brought him into foster a few weeks later.  He was fully vet checked and neutered and well the change in him was quite something.
Trevor was adopted in early October and we wish him every happiness in his new home.

This lovely lad came into our care, after being reported to us as an aggressive feral. Once in our care, we knew Rocky was anything but feral and he was actually incredibly affectionate!

In October 2016, Rocky landed on his paws and was adopted by his new family. They renamed him Ronnie, and as you can see he is truly loved.






Penny came into our care on the 4 August 2016, she was trapped in Buckingham along with her daughter Rosie and Rosie’s five kittens.

Penny had been abandoned and given birth to kittens in someone’s back garden. This meant that her daughter Rosie was pure feral, so Rosie was neutered and relocated to a farm in north Milton Keynes.
Penny was quite shy to begin with, however that all changed when she met Sid who lived in the pen next door. It was love at first sight, and they decided they just couldn’t be apart!
Sid came into our care after being reported as a stray, who was causing trouble with the resident cats! When he came into care we realised he was so affectionate, and he craved cuddles. He took a shine to Penny, and really came out his shell even more.
This lovely pair really did fall in love, and well…. a picture speaks a thousand words.
This little lad came into our care in August 2016 with his family in tow! He was a slightly older kitten, who required some more socialisation that the rest.
He moved to his furrrrever home in October 2016.




Evee came into our care with her siblings, mum Rosie and grandma Penny.  She was a little sweetie right from the start and soon found a loving home with a family friend of one of our volunteers in September 2016.
This little beauty came into our care with his entire family, grandmother included! He was quite nervous to begin with, but soon developed a wonderful personality.
He found his furrrever home in September 2016.
This senior chap came into our care in July 2016, he had been living in someones back garden and we were unable to trace his owners.
He soon settled into foster care, and enjoyed some well deserved TLC. You can find his journey through care in our blog section.
On day 76 in care (September 2016), his fosterer Lyn announced she was officially adopting Puss Puss.
Sadly, in January 2017 Puss Puss decided it was his time to move on, and he made his journey over the Rainbow Bridge. (RIP XXX)


Russ came into our care in July of this year, he has now found his furrever home.

Meeko came into our care the first weekend in September, he was signed over with his sister Lily but they weren’t very fond of each other, so we decided to home them separately to ensure their happiness.

This beautiful lady came us into the first weekend in September, as she was signed over with her brother Meeko. They didn’t particularly get along, so to ensure their happiness we decided to rehome them separately. Suffice to say that both Lily and Meeko were snapped up.



Minnie came into our care as she wasn’t getting on with the resident dog.
At two years old she is simply adorable but was rather possessive of her food we’ve never seen a cat who was living in a home eat so fast! She settled in really well and was adopted a few weeks after being brought into care.

This beautiful lad came into our care and his journey into foster was captured on one of our videos:

Ritchie was rehomed on the 17 August 2016.  Now called Ziggy he has well and truly got his paws under the table.

Katie came into our care as her owner was moving into rented accommodation, and wasn’t allowed pets.  He had rescued her as a kitten and was heartbroken to have to say good bye. We were delighted to keep her previous owner updated as she settled in and after a few weeks in care she found herself a loving new home.
Ebony came into our care following the death of her owner.
She was rehomed on the 15 August 2016 and safe to say she is settling in very well.
Lulu came into care after her original owner wanted her PTS, as she had urinary issues.  Whether true or not, Lulu had no issues in that department in care but was a very scared little girl.
She took a little bit of time to settle under the watchful eye of her fosterer, but after a few short weeks she found a home with a lovely lady.


Born in our care on the 4 May 2016. Their mum, Smokey, had been living on a farm and had already had one litter outside, where only one kitten had survived and was now feral. Determined that this litter would be socialised and found loving homes we brought their mum into foster. She had a lovely large room to stay in, and showed no signs of stress, purely focused on raising her young.
When her kittens were rehomed, Smokey was neutered and relocated.
These little cuties came into our care on the 9 June 2016 as their owner was struggling to find a home for them.  Like most cat lovers we loved these adorable mini black panthers, and knew immediately that these two were full of love and energy!
Tang loved to sit on her fosterer’s shoulders whilst Ting would happily sit on her lap. They clearly adored one another so we were quietly hoping that we would find them a home together.  After just three weeks in our care and having been vet checked, vaccinated and chipped, we were delighted to be contacted by a lovely couple.  Suffice to say that Ting and Tang were snapped up and our prays were answered and they found a loving and safe home together.





Molly came into our care having been found in living in a car park, with one kitten who we called Noodle.

Noodle was rehomed after a few weeks in our care, as she was already 7 weeks old when she came in. However, it became clear that Molly was already well established in another pregnancy.  Sadly, Molly experienced a very difficult labour on 11 April 2016, and lost three of her kittens. The one remaining surviving kitten was a little boy, who was named Wilba.


Wilba turned in a beautiful little boy who was adopted at 9 weeks old.  Molly, his mum also found a loving home in North Milton Keynes.

If a lovely couple in central Milton Keynes hadn’t reported Molly and Noodle to us, then there is no doubt that Molly wouldn’t have survived that second pregnant.

Sheba came into our care with her sister Xena having been found living in a barn. At six months of age and having some Bengal breeding in them we knew it was going to be a challenge to socialise them but we are here to give every cat a second chance even those that may not initially appreciate it!d9da9-sheba2525201

Sheba quickly showed her playful and softer side and we were delighted when Mel asked to meet her as she already had experience of Bengal cats. She was rehomed in April 2016.

Sadly, at the end of last year Mel decided Sheba needed to be rehomed. We found her a new home, with her purrrrfect owner who also had experience with Bengal cats.



Tim came into our care with his mum and new litter of kittens.  As a friendly, playful six month old it took no time at all for him to a find a new home.  He joined Milo one of our other foster cats living with Jacqueline.

This beautiful lad came into our care in February 2016, as his owners sadly moved away and left him behind. 
A lovely lady contacted us who was looking for a cat who was good with children. We already knew that Stewie was so laid back and confident, that he would be fine with children so arranged a viewing.  The meeting was a huge success and Stewie was rehomed on the 13 March 2016.  Suffice to say he is very happy.




Noodle came into our care on the 16 February 2016. Noodle and mum had been living in an underground car park for several weeks. Her mum was sadly pregnant again, so she had to remain in care. However, Noodle (now Poppy) found a loving home.

Noodle in her new home 🙂




Reggie had clearly been mistreated prior to be found as a stray, as he had some clear trust issues. Luckily, his rehoming poster was spotted at a fundraising event, and we were delighted that he found a loving and safe home with his new owner Ann.




Rupert came into our care from Greensands Vets, he was found cold and hungry, on an industrial estate where he had been seen for some weeks. Sadly no one came forward to claim him as theirs, so we got him vaccinated and chipped, and after a good rest he was re-homed on the 18 February 2016.

Rupert is the kind of cat that as soon as he sees you he wants a cuddle so we know he is going to have a very happy and contented life with his new owner who stays at home most days.


Bilbo came into our care on the 11 January 2016, as was an 11 year old entire tom!! Whilst he was with us, he was finally neutered, vaccinated and given a dental that he desperately needed.

He could be quite shy, and needed a patient owner. Luckily, when a lady came forward looking for a senior, indoor cat we couldn’t believe our luck.  But when they meet on the 13 February 2016, his new owner was so patient and just waited for Bilbo to come to her.  Annie his fosterer knew instantly that this was a match made in heaven.




Ava was mum to Bertie & Barney and found her new home just a day or so after her little ones had found their home.




These little fellas came into our care when they were only a few weeks old, but look at them now.  They went off to their new home on the 20 January 2016, and looks like they have settled in very well indeed.


Elsa came into our care in November 2015.  She had been found 5 weeks beforehand at Bleak Hall Industrial Estate.  Very hungry, dirty and with a few cuts and bruises a lovely chap took her into a vets for a scan for a chip.

Elsa was given a clean bill of health by the vets a few days in our care.  However during her stay in foster it appeared she had a rather slight wob

ble when she turned on her hind legs & when Elsa went back for her 2nd vaccination jab the vet confirmed that she had a very mild form of wobbly cat syndrome.

The condition (cerebellar hypoplasia) requires no treatment and will not deteriorate or cause any health issues in the future.

Elsa was re-homed in early January 2016 and first reports sound extremely promising.  We’re looking forward to receiving a photo of her in her new home soon.

One thought on “Happy Endings 2016

  1. It's lovely to see your Happy Endings, so many too! You really do a great job in caring for these little souls. I love seeing the older ones get rehomed 🙂
