Natalie sent us this: "Just to let you know we have finally decided on a name for Baubles...we’ve decided on Ash. We thought of one of the fox characters from Fantastic Mr. Fox, the Roald Dahl story as his tail is like a fox’s! I’ve called him Ash McBaubles, a hint to his Christmas adoption! :-) :-)"
Just a quick email from Lorna to let us see how Daisy is doing: 
"Still nervous of new people but getting used to the goings on in the house. She has destroyed my husband's slippers, his feet must smell like catnip lol. Although we have offered to open the door for the garden for her she has not really gone past the step. She is already part of our family. Thanks for letting us take her home."
Helen sent this update on her cats:  "I thought you might like to see how well Kit and Fin 
(now Galliard and Caslon) are settling in. As you can see, they still like to cuddle up together. And thank you for such huggy boys."
Caroline sent this sad news: "Approximately 11 and a half years ago I adopted a cat called Smudge from you. I renamed him Gucci however he had lung cancer and had to be put down on the 27th December. He was the perfect pet and is dearly missed but I wanted to let you know. I like to think he had a happy and long life. We're not looking right now but over the next year if you do come across a pair of domestic long haired brothers who are in need of a home please let me know."
A sad note from Bob & Linda: "Just a note to inform you that our cat Hamish who we adopted from you on 14/4/2012 had to be put to sleep after suddenly becoming ill with a tumour. He was a fantastic, fun and healthy cat and we would like to thank you for getting him to us for 8 years. Thanks again and keep up the great work."
Jonathan & Laura wanted to provide an update on Jinx who they adopted on 21 March 2020; "He has really settled in now, initially only staying in the garden for six months but now he is out and about meeting other cats and seems to be really happy here. Laura and I are really happy that we adopted him as he fits in so well but still getting used to the idea that the cat flap is an in door and not just an out door. We have put a track on him to ensure he doesn’t go too far, don’t think he notices."
Corinne sent us this: "We adopted Princess, now called Lola, on Saturday and so far so good.  She has figured where her food is, her litter tray, an overnight spot etc... So far so good. Here is Lola settling on our bed.  Hopefully better pictures to come soon!"
A message about Sylvester from Karen: "Well, it took him 10 minutes, but he seems to be making himself at home! We are already devoted fans!"
Wendy & John adopted Nia on 9th December. "We've renamed her Una, which in Gaelic means 'white wave', although the speed she runs down the hallway should have been tsunami! She's a tiny bit of feline energy at 2.8kg and her character changes every day as she becomes more and more confident. She's a very loving puss, especially when her tummy is full and we can't thank everyone at LCR enough for caring for her before she became a member of our family."
Ann sent this update on Willow who has been living with her since mid October: "Willow has really settled in and given up hiding behind the sofa, preferring on the chair.  She had the last of her injections in mid November so has been going out since then. The first couple of days she just skulked around the edges of the garden but now she is in and out having very quickly got to grips with the cat door. She likes chasing the squirrels though they are a lot faster than her and she has also met the resident foxes.  The first time the young fox wanted to play but Willow thought it was better to leap out from behind the bushes and chase.  This morning they had a bit of a stand off in the snow.  She isn't a lap cat (yet) but she does like to come up on my lap in the morning to purr and and get stroked.  And she's discovered my bed."
Anne & Tom sent this update on their new adoptees: "Pansy and Daisy settling in quite happily after their first week with us. We will now be changing their names:
Pansy will be Cachou
Daisy will be Réglisse
(Both names are types of licorice in French!)"
