You might remember the animated film from Christmas 2017, in which a gorgeous ginger cat found a home after being overlooked.

The animation was based on a true story, that of 16 year old Kozal. He spent seven long months at Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre in Sussex, overlooked in favour of younger cats.

Kozal was finally adopted just before Christmas by Jill Cash and her husband, who came across his picture in their local newspaper.

They have now sent us an update on how Kozal is getting on.

Jill says: “As soon as he is awake, either on my bed or in his favourite armchair, he heads for the wide windowsill upstairs and watches the world waking up.”

It appears that Kozal has become even more laid-back in his new home, but while he may be a mature moggy, he still likes to play with his catnip toys.

Jill adds: “He is a bit grumpy at times but that doesn’t make me regret homing him. He can be really cute when he sits on your lap and purrs his heart out of an evening.”
