Sinclair is 3 months here now and loving his new life. We love our wee boy, he’s a chilled wee lad who likes looking out the window and playing with toys unlike when he got here and was a bit timid.

He likes to be where you are night and day and he’s found his voice and likes to announce his presence and when he wants fed lol.

His ears are much better and rarely need much attention now. Our vet has been keeping an eye on them.

Best wishes

Anne x

Thanks once again to Cats Protection for allowing us to adopt him.

SUCCESS STORY: Vinnie, Frida & Edith (adopted 21 feb 2022 - update 3 May 2022)

Vinnie, Frida & Edith were three youngsters who came into our care in February 2022 through no fault of their own. They were a very tight knit, bonded trio and we wanted to keep them together as a family, so an appeal was put out to see if we could find them their furever home together.

Their story was spotted by Linda & family who fell in love with them the moment they saw them and they were adopted on 21 February 2022.

They settled in with their family very quickly, and were not shy at exploring their new home and chasing each other all over the house. One of their favourite pastimes is settling at the window to watch the squirrels out of the window.

We know the wee ones have brought much joy to their family and we are delighted they have found their forever home together where they are very much loved family members x


SUCCESS STORY: Luna (aka Nisha) adopted 18 October 2019 – update 23 March 2022


Beautiful Luna was adopted on 18 October 2019 by Sophie & family when she was just a year old. Luna was a very nervous young cat who could be a little temperamental at times and needed a furever family who would give her the time, love and patience that she needed to settle and trust them. A wee update has been received which we would love to share with you as follows:

I just wanna say thank you 🙂 - Nisha is now named Luna and when we got her no one knew her backstory.

It’s been a few years since we’ve had her and she’s an absolute delight. I never thought cats would have a sense of humour, she never fails to make us laugh with her hide and seek skills or the zoomies at 11pm every night. She came to us a timid thing, she is still learning and it’s been a long process but one that’s worth it for sure.

I really hope more people consider adopting cats that just need that little bit extra tlc - we couldn’t imagine life without her and she’s a very much loved, furry family member.

Love Sophie x


SUCCESS STORY: Willow & Evie (adopted 21 August 2021 – update 14 March 2022)



Willow & Evie were adopted by Rebecca & Patrick on 21 August 2021 when they were just 3 months old and have been with their furever family 7 months.

A wee update has been received as follows:

Hi, I just thought I would give you an update on Willow and Evie (preciously Puma and Lynx) who we adopted from you in August 2022.

They have settled in beautifully and are two of the biggest cuddle bugs around. They are getting more and more playful by the day and love having a rough and tumble together when they're not asleep on our laps.

Willow gets very jealous if I'm on my phone and when she wants attention, will headbutt it or just sit on it to force me to put it down lol

Evie is also a right wee character too and loves hitching a ride on Patrick's shoulder.

We are so grateful to have them in our lives and part of our family, thank you.

Love Becky, Patrick Evie & Willow


SUCCESS STORY: Amber (adopted September 2021 - update 3 March 2022)


Beautiful Amber was adopted in September 2021 by Scott & family and has been in her forever 6 months.

A wee update has been received as follows that we would love to share with you:

Hi, we adopted Amber (formerly Khalessi) 6 months ago and since then she has become a very much loved part of our family and has probably slept with us every night since.

She has a very confident, curious side always exploring the house and saying hi to every visitor.

Today is her 5th Birthday and she will be getting some new toys and Dreamies as a birthday treat.

 She is the sweetest, most cuddly cat and adopting her has been a blessing, we are very grateful to Cats Protection for taking good care of Amber until we adopted her.

Amber, all the volunteers in Cats Protection Glasgow Branch send their love to you and wish you a “Happy Birthday” x


SUCCESS STORY: Nora (adopted 25 June 2021 - update 27 February 2022)


Beautiful Nora was adopted on 25 June 2021 by Emma & family and has been in her forever home 8 months.

A wee update has been received as follows that we would love to share with you:

Nora who has been with us for 8 months now and as I write, is curled up in my lap like the cutest little hot water bottle.

She is just the sweetest most affectionate wee cat, always happy to see us and loves to be around us no matter what we are doing.

She loves to play and does some spectacular and entertaining salmon-like leaps in pursuit of her favourite feathery toys.

Thank you for letting us adopt this little ray of sunshine. Here are some snaps of her in all her favourite hangout spots.

Best Wishes



SUCCESS STORY: Mylo (adopted 31 January 2021 - update 13 February 2022)


Handsome, Mylo was adopted when he was 3 & ½ years-old on 31 January 2021 by Colin & Elizabeth. At the time of adoption Mylo had been known to suffer from hot spots (skin sores, usually caused when a cat has been biting and scratching at an irritating spot and bacteria gets in causing an infection. The area becomes red and warm to the touch, hence the name "hot spot.")

Colin & Elizabeth were not put off by Mylo’s condition and fell in love with him the moment they saw him.

Now just over his one-year adoption anniversary a wee update as follows:

Hi, Mylo has really settled well after hissing at us both on the day he arrived. He loves to be chased around the house and if you are ignoring him he will come in and sit in front of the TV. We have bought a few cat beds but typical cat, he loves cardboard boxes or sleeping on our bed lol.

Before we got Mylo we were told he suffered from hotspots but thankfully he has not had one since we got him home.

He’s an absolutely beautiful cat, though he can be a character at times but he's fitted right in and is definitely a very much loved furry family member.

Best wishes

Colin & Elizabeth x


SUCCESS STORY: Otis (adopted 3 November 2021 – update 8 February 2022)


Handsome, little Otis (previously Lubo) was 5 months old when adopted by Rosie & family on 3 November 2021 and has now been in furever home just over 3 months.

Rosie has let us know Otis is very settled, loves life to the full and enjoys helping make the bed and getting involved in everything that anyone is doing around the home.

He has now started to explore the great outdoors and has still to master his hiding technique from the birds.

What a lovely update to receive from Rosie.

We are delighted that Otis is enjoying life to the full with his forever family x 


SUCCESS STORY: Dorian & Lady (adopted 7 December 2021 – update 1 February 2022)


Dorian & Lady were adopted by Shiree & Andrew on 7 December 2021 when they were just 14 weeks old. The wee ones were shy, quiet kittens that needed lots of time, love and patience to help them settle, trust their family and come out of their shells and show their true natures and personalities.

A wee update has been received as follows:

Hi all at Glasgow Branch,

We wanted to send you an update on Dorian and Lady since it is now nearly two months since we adopted them.

Both kittens are doing very well and have settled in to our home wonderfully.

As you will be aware, Dorian is the more confident of the two and he remains so. He is our shadow and follows us everywhere and he 'yells' at us when he wants feeding. Lady is still more timid but she has made incredible progress since she arrived and now sits on our lap and goes for a sleep.

The kittens love one another's company and are inseparable and we are delighted to have them as part of our family.

Best regards

Shiree, Andrew, Lady, and Dorian x


SUCCESS STORY: Teddy (adopted 15 December 2021 – update 2 January 2022)

Teddy settled in incredibly well and is so playful. He is an absolute joy and is the most agreeable, best natured cat we’ve ever had.

He's fitted right in and is definitely one of our family.

Thanks again for all you do, and best wishes for 2022.

Kirsteen x
