Update on JESTER (was TOBY)

Toby and his brothers and sisters were rescued from a disused locked garage. Their fosterer had to help socialise them, although they were quickly known in branch as the wallpaper peelers! I wonder why!😉
Hi everyone. Thought I would share some photos of Jester (was Toby) who we adopted off you last year.
He is hilarious. He collects sticks so maybe he is identifying as a dog. 
He loves to get involved with things around the house ... from changing TV channels to helping daddy with work. He loves his sleep too and will pretty much sleep anywhere. He is adored by us, although his older purr-brother thinks he is irritating. 
Hope these put a smile on someone’s face as he does with us.
Thank you Wendy for sharing Toby's story with us all. If you have adopted a cat/kitten from us and would like to share your story, please send to



Here is one of our past success stories from Tanya:- Tigerlily an ex feral rescued kitten had to be fully socialised in branch care. Her fosterer spent hours each day, gradually going through the socialisation that a kitten born in branch care would have received. When Tigerlily came into branch she bit, hissed, scratched and spat! After a few days, of dedicated input, she soon started to love sitting on laps, playing and purring a lot. The perfect home had to be found where Tigerlily could have her freedom outside but also enjoy family life with lots of play and cuddles. She was rehomed to a lovely family who own stables in the summer last year.

"I just wanted to update you on Tiger Lilly - we totally love her! She's really good and never leaves our yard, so never goes on the road. She sleeps in the house at night on the end of my bed. We've now got a 29 week old golden retriever and they are best mates. Such good friends in fact that she brought him in a dead mouse today! She still doesn't meow, just screams at you lol! We couldn't ever imagine a better suited cat for us and after her uncertain start she is so happy. Still very small but so friendly. So one very content, happy cat! Thanks for all your hard work at Cats Protection."
