And they lived happily ever after...

Ori's guide to getting adopted

I was surrendered to CAT 1977 Leeds along with my two brothers, being in the pen was a little scary but my fosterer waited on me hand and foot and I soon settled.

It wasn't long before I was offered a new home, I mean, who could resist my charm?

My new home came with a new big sister! So exciting! I'm not sure she felt the same way though. My new owners were brilliant, and made sure the introduction was slow and stress free and now she definitely loves me too!

After a few weeks, I was soon feeling right at home. I discovered that the best way to make sure you get plenty of cuddles is to hang out with your tum out!

Getting a new home is brilliant but it can be a bit daunting so it's important to take it slowly. I'm so relaxed now, I love my new family and they love me. My brothers were also really lucky and found a new home together!

Charlie is living the dream

Charlie definitely fell on his feet with his new owners. Here is what they have to say about him:

'We fell in love with Charlie and his chubby cheeks before we'd even met him. He has settled into our home really well; he likes to loaf around and always wants to be part of the action! He's a very playful boy and loves his toys. Charlie loves his food and comes running when we shake the bag of Dreamies...

We are so happy that we adopted Charlie - he brings us so much joy everyday!'

What a wonderful happy ending.

Thomas and Sweepy are absolutely loving life in their new home. 

It took a while for these two bonded siblings to be adopted, but boy did they land on their feet when their perfect new owner picked them to join their family!

Every single cat deserves a loving new home and to be just as lucky as Thomas and Sweepy.

Lola - living it up

She was soon snapped up by her new family. She now likes to spend her days cuddling with big brother Reggie, exploring the garden and making sure she has everyone wrapped round her paw.

Lola was found in a garden in Leeds at a very young age. She came into foster care where her cuteness and sassy personality made everyone fall in love.

Max is a very lucky cat indeed. 

Max came into our care needing a lot of TLC, he was in quite a bad condition (absolutely filthy and in need of a good bath would be an understatement!) He was always a very sweet cat but it took months before he was adopted, unfortunately he was returned to us as he did not get on with the other cat in the household. Max had also put on a bit of weight in his time in foster care and he needed a home which could help him lose his extra weight (he will tell you that he is just big boned though!)

He was thankfully soon snapped up and found himself in the perfect home, he has even got himself a BFF (best feline forever). The moral of this story is that sometimes it can take a while to find that perfect home but we never give up on our cats and there is always a happy ending waiting out there somewhere.

Charlie lands on her feet

Gorgeous Charlie is FIV positive, this means that she has a condition called feline immunodeficiency virus, in its most simple terms, it causes a weakened immune system meaning that they are more prone to other infections and problems. Rehoming a cat with FIV can be difficult but thankfully Charlie found the perfect new home. 

Having FIV means that she'll need to be kept indoors and her condition monitored over the years, it is certainly not a death sentence and cats with the condition can live healthy lives for years. 

Charlie has settled in so well in her new home, apparently she's the Queen of the household but her new family don't mind at all. She sleeps on their bed at night and has started curling up on their knees for cuddles. Turns out that Charlie is a total lovebug!
