    My blind girls, Poppy and Daisy, are going to be 6 years old next week and I can still remember them when I brought them home as tiny kittens. The world revolves around them and they give so much joy to us as do Ozzy (12) and Mocha (13) . Also my first cat from you, Tilliana, so loved and missed. Thank you for all of them.

    Our lovely old black and white boy had just been taken from us , cancer is a terrible thing. There were going to be no more cats as we were all devastated by his passing, but our son was looking and found Patsy’s wonderful Persian rescue, we saw the little silver spotted tortie British Shorthair, she was called Dreamer. Well we came and saw, love at first sight, we got her a few days later on her birthday, coincidence, we think meant to be. She is now called Missy, and we have had her for just over two years now, to say a cat is loved and happy is just about right, she has settled in so well, from the very beginning she made herself at home, now is the be all and end all, Missy can do no wrong , she loves the garden as had never been out before, she is perfectly safe as can’t seem to climb, not a bird catcher either, even though she’ll give it a go, they all seem to know they are safe !
    So many thanks Patsy for our gorgeous Missy , she is our little darling, even if does love our bed and gets very up close and personal!!!

    We have a beautiful cat we called Lilly, her mum was a Snowshoe, Lilly was one of the smaller black and white kittens at the rescue centre, she is beautiful and now nearly 5 years old, she lives with the Akita dog and they are very good friends. Happy Ten Years of great work!

    Hi, we’ve had a number of cat’s from you over the last 10 years, the last two only a week ago Ra and Cobweb. They all have such distinct personalities and have given us unconditional love. In our multi cat house Ra & Cobweb surprised us with the ease with which they fitted in and grow in confidence daily. Thank you for all your support & help – here’s to the next 10 years.

    We adopted Missy, who we now call Hollie, in November 2010, What can I say, Hollie is a Siberian Cat, we love this breed of cat, so clever, talkative, so much fun and a lap cat, she never leaves our sides. Hollie last year had to have a hip toggle fitted which was really a worrying time but luckily she has recovered and is doing really well. From a shy little cat that we could not even touch when we came to adopt her, she is now the most
    perfect cat companion who we adore. Thank you for letting us adopt her.xxx

    An update finally…..10 years later! Mollie and Pickle were rescued from yourselves and they have travelled with us to Bahrain and are just the most gorgeous pair. Thank you for letting us have our forever Friends. We love them dearly xxx

    We adopted Bert from here last October the 8th – I spent my birthday money on him, and he was the nicest cat I have ever owned, Sad to say he died 51 weeks later but he was an old old cat to start with so we had an expectation of this, but he was the best decision I ever made. Patsy and crew were always helpful and supportive and I miss him everyday! Fantastic service

    Hi, we adopted Cienna a tortoiseshell Persian from you a while back and I just wanted to let you know she is doing fine. From the timid shaved little lady who wasn’t very keen on being fussed, she is now a beautiful bold cat who demands a cuddle all the time. She settled in well with our other Persian but now definately rules the roost. Would not be without her. Thank you so much xx

    I bring sad news of Daisy, a british blue we rehomed from yourselves back in 2011-12. She recently developed an aggressive tumour between her eyes/nose. No expense was spared in trying to bring her back to health and comfortable, but in the end there was nothing more the vets could do to save her. She was laid to rest 22/04/2016. We now have a hole in our hearts where a cat should fit. RIP Daisy, and thank you for being a part of our family for the last 4 years.

      I have just seen your post about loosing you precious cat. I don’t know whether you have filled the void that was left yet but I have a beautiful mainecoone that I am being forced to re home as my partner has developed a severe breathing problem because of her. Please let me know if you could give a loving home to my baby. Kind regards Sarah

    We adopted Hugo, a white chinchilla persian (whose original name was Meeko) in 2008. He is an amazing cat and an absolute joy to us. Basically head of the house now! Thanks to Patsy and all at Rushden for the fantastic work you do. We would adopt more but unfortunately Hugo won’t have any of it but it doesn’t stop me looking!

    Hi Patsy
    We’re the family who adopted Misty from you a few years ago now & spoke recently about finding a Maine Coon cat….. well we adopted one from Jean. We called him Dudley & Misty accepted him well. Of course Misty is the boss !
    We’re so pleased to have them both in our family.
    Thank you so much for your help & support xxx

    Hi Patsy and team!
    Just a little update on Rafi who is absolutely gorgeous and is the apple of our eyes! As I remember you said he was going to be a big lad and he is according to our vet! He is so loving and loves his food, being brushed and giving me face snuggles! Thank you so much for introducing him to us because he is really a delightful little cat.
