Finley was one of six kittens who along with his Mum wasn't wanted by his owner. He came into CP care when he was 5 weeks old in October 2016 and was adopted in November. A cute kitten, Finley's grown into a handsome cat and he 
and his family told us how things are going for them all.

"Hi Debbie
I thought that I would let you know how I am getting on. I am very excited because I have been outside for the first time. I loved it although was a bit scared at first. It is a lovely garden and its all mine with my Friend Abi. She is a girl but very nice and we play together very well. I even curl up with her sometimes. She arrived after me so I think I am in charge !! We get lots of love and Andi is making us an outside house for occasional use, if we have wandered too far and Elizabeth & Andi have had to go out. I'm not sure I want to wander too far yet, its a big world!
Here I am sat outside. You can see I have grown lots. I am well fed and get an occasional treat of salmon or trout which is yum ! Here is a picture of my Friend Abi too
All for now Debbie 
Love Finley, Elizabeth & Andi xx"


At the milestone of 1 year old, on 29/08/17, the lovely Finley wanted us to know how he's getting on...
"Just dropping in on my Birthday today. I am one and can't believe where the time has gone! Mum says I am quite heavy now and due for my health check soon.
I have been put onto Big Cat food now the same as my Sister ! Its ok and seems to be more filling. Good old Felix !
I travel quite a distance now and sometimes I am late home as I was the other night. I though I was locked out as I had gone out the front door with no cat flap but Thank Goodness Mum was there to let me in at 1 A.M ! I was so pleased to see her I purred lots.
I do go on a few adventures now. I love the house Dad made me. Its mine. My Sister Abi doesn't seem to use it and I go there often. Its very cosy. I like to chew the cardboard boxes.
I am sending you a few pictures and as you said I was handsome, I thought I would share them
Mum & Dad send their best wishes
Finley's adventures over and out
Love Finley xx"


December 2017 sees Finley enjoy his second Christmas with his Mum, Dad and Abi, his sister saying "I love it here, its very cosy and I'm loved a lot.
I recently had my year check up and was told that I was overweight ! So my food has been cut down a bit which I don't like but don't want to be a FAT cat !
Can you believe overweight by .9 of a kg ! Otherwise very healthy ! Mum keeps telling me to get some more exercise !
I have a lot of fun here and enjoy chasing Abi. I think I'm a bit mean but after all I was here first, silly Sister broke her paw so didn't arrive until the New Year. I do like her though and she seems to look out for me if I'm stuck anywhere!
Sending you a few pictures of us, as you can see we're happy !
Well all for now. Have a lovely Christmas
Love Finley, Mum, Dad & Abi x"

December 2018: A Christmas message from Finley!  "Here I am again ! Another year has passed and I am now 2 years old.  As you can see I am a very Handsome boy. I was even called a Tiger by a little boy the other day !
I am very settled here with Mum and Dad, Abi and I don't always get on but we tolerate each other ! eat together etc but I draw the line at sleeping with her ! As time goes on I think we will get on better !
I travel a lot especially at night and seem to sleep lots during the day.
I know I am loved a lot so that pleases me. I even get treats sometimes too.  The vet was very pleased with me this year when I had my Health check, She said that I wasn't too overweight. I get fed very well with even the odd treat of salmon!
We are looking forward to Christmas Day as we might get something special. As you can see I am very settled here.
Mum and Dad and Abi send their love too
With love
Finley x"
