Some of the beautiful souls homed during 2023

2023 saw Smarty Pants find a new forever home.

Her new owners sent the following message:

I am absolutely in love with her! She is the softest, most affectionate cat I have ever known. The first night she was here I didn’t get much sleep. She snuggled up so close and purred and purred! After that night our son decided he wanted her at night.

Less than two weeks after arriving it is as if she has always been one of our family. She’s my little black shadow,always wanting cuddles and to be stroked. She sits on my son’s lap when he’s in his wheelchair and likes to be wheeled around.

Some of the souls homed during 2021. Thank you to everyone who gave a furry friend a new home and hope.

A little soul who came to us during 2020. Thank you for staying with us and we hope that you and those you love stayed safe. So many of you gave animals a new chance. They have always been important to us but even more so when so many of us found ourselves unable to visit friends or family or share a hug. Below the ‘little one’ are Hugo, Smudge and Missy.

billyThis is Billy.  He was left behind when his family left way back in April / May 2019. He was found in a greenhouse on a bail of straw.  A beautiful couple took pity on hi and nursed him when he had a bad foot.  He then came to us.  In January 2020 he found that special new forever home and is now know as Felix.


Ollie went off to his new home at the end of December 2019.  He has three young boys to love and care for him, lots of space to run around in and a Grandma next door to spoil him too!


Mystery male with no name now has a name and a beautiful new home.  (January 2020)


Moo is living in luxury having found her new home in January 2020.  She settled in quickly; within less than a week it was as if she had never been anywhere else.


Ivy found a beautiful new home and is doing well.


Elsa who was found near Stanley in a very sad way.  Is now looking very healthy and living with her new owner.  We found out in January 2020 that she is deaf but it does not seem to bother her.


Mister (now known as Bertie) has joined a group of our souls at Charlie’s Cat Cafe in Stone.  He is having the very best of times.


Molly has found a new home.  She missed her previous owner so much but is now settled and felling a little less stressed.


Four kittens found on the A34 have now all found new homes.  The last two (females) went off to a lovely couple who have lots of time and lots of love to give.

We are Lucky and her babies, found abandoned in the cold and wet near to Ilam.  Our other two siblings had not survived.  The beautiful and kind Wendy and Lucy nursed us and we are now strong and healthy.  Wendy could not bear to part with Lucky so she has stayed to live with her family of other animals.  The two kittens moved to a fabulous home.


I am Oswald.  I have to be moved from my home because my human family had to go to a place of safety.  I was very frightened but soon gained in confidence and I am now in my new forever home.


We are very naughty but a very kind lady has offered to take us to live with her.  Despite the fact that we are not at all friendly.

Putty and Chloe has gone to new homes this October.  Also the two little souls below went off to new homes in November.  They were known as “It’s a Mystery” because they were just left at our door.  So sad.


Coco has joined another one of our souls (Si) and is famous on the Laser Local Radio based in Leek.


Who would have thought it!  Me, Thomas O Malley with a new home.  They love me and I love being with them.


I am Sakura.  I had been with the Home for months.  I think people thought that I was too old and my fur was a bit messy but I met a wonderful lady who seemed to have been searching just for me.  I now live in luxury; taken me a little time to get used to it but my new ‘mum’ is so patient with me.


Hi…I am Pebbles, although Nicola insists on calling me Peebles.  I am a Bengal and very loving.  New home and new start.  Thank you


Hi my name is Roman

As you can see I liked to be loved but I was very grumpy with a lot of people who visited.  Then a couple arrived and I decided that they were the ones.  I am now in my new home and loved everyday.  There really is someone for each of us.

Some other souls who have new forever homes…

This is MowMow.  He was 10 years old when he arrived with us.  His owner loved him dearly but could no longer look after him.  He now lives with a house of other cats and is very happy.  He can be found sitting with his new owner most evenings.Mow


We all came in to the Home together as babies.  We all now have new homes and are very happy.  Thank you

Meet Socks and Molly Moo.  They came to us in April because a very kind lady at Broad Oak was concerned and took the time to make the call.  We could not find their mother and so they have been hand fed.  Against the odds they survived and have found a new forever home with a beautiful family in Longton.

This beautiful soul (now named Khaleesi by her new owner) came in pregnant and a month later gave birth to 5 beautiful kittens; three tabbies and two all black.  5kittens3
