Norman (Formerly Beast)


Hi there, Thanks for looking after Norman (aka Beast); he’s settling in well to his new forever home.  He was a little miffed about being put in a cat carrier, but is happy to be here now 🤗 We’ve had lots of purrs and cuddles and he’s confidently making his way round the house bunting and marking his new territory. He’s eating well and letting his oriental side out by telling me all about his need for fuss and cuddles.  He likes to follow me round the house and see what’s happening, I’m so glad he’s already confident and secure here. Thanks for letting me adopt him, he’s already a great companion 👍 Kind regards, Ross

A quick progress report on Duke. He has settled well in his new home. He sleeps all night although initially he was only sleeping lightly, within a few days he has become very relaxed and is sleeping deeply . He  is a very quick learner. He is very active enjoying lots of play and walks. He still needs work with his anxieties over other dogs and men but he is already not as reactive and is starting to be calmer around both of them. Kind regards Glenys

Evie (Mila’s kitten)


Evening...I just wanted to let you know how Evie is getting on since we picked her up last Saturday. From the moment we brought her home she came out of her carrier within seconds and became one of the family instantly. She has settled in so well and we are absolutely in love with her. She has such a fantastic mischievous character and loves a good play time. She also loves a good of her favourite things to do. It took a few days for our other cat Pippin, who we got from you guys 14 years ago, to accept her but they now enjoy a good play also, Evie sure likes to chase him around and play with his tail. Thanks so much to you all for the great work you do. Samantha

Hi all Just to let you know Max has settled in really well. He's such a funny character, so affectionate and very loving, he certainly doesn't act his 16 years either! He's eating well and really enjoys his food. He also enjoys a potter around the garden and loves a cat nap in the sunshine. Thank you so much for letting us adopt him. Best wishes

Denzel (Oreo’s kitten)


Hi there, I just thought I would email an update as Denzel approaches his first birthday! Denzel was born at the shelter in May to mum Oreo and I immediately fell in love with him.  He came to join us in August 2020.  We already had a cat Rodney, who accepted his playful little brother at first with slight suspicion but eventually with affection :) Denzel is a much loved member of our family and has grown into a big strong healthy boy.  He has a very relaxed personality and doesn't let anything bother him.  He loves to laze around.  He has since acquired another little brother Trigger (also from Fairwinds) and all three cats love playing and chasing each other. Denzel is the largest! Denzel is particularly fond of my youngest son Henry, who he has chosen as 'his

Trigger (Mitzi’s kitten)


Hi there, I just thought I would email you an update on Trigger as he has now grown so much! Trigger was born at the shelter in August to mum Mitzi - as we already had a black cat Rodney, and a black and white cat Denzel, I knew little white Trigger would have to join our family to complete the trio :) Trigger is very much loved, despite being the youngest of our cats he is the cheekiest, naughtiest and greediest but he is always immediately forgiven because he's so adorable.  He is also the muckiest :)  he likes to pretend to anyone that will listen that we don't feed him (we definitely do!!) and will never pass up an opportunity for a snack or treat. The other two cats accepted him immediately and he loves to play and

Bon-Bon ready for his first walk outside. Loved his first walk amongst the dandelions and daisies.  Wasn't so keen on the torrential rain that suddenly arrived but now happily snoozing on his little hot water bottle. Sends his brotherly love to Loki and Goliath. Worming syringes are funny, how do you get those down the throat of a wriggling squid like puppy? I wore most of it.  Hide it in food, if it ain't broke don't fix it

Solomon (Formerly Rocky)


We haven't had him long but he settled in nicely, making progress with his reactivity towards vehicles and even had a walk where he didn't react to them. Still reactive towards other dogs but even that is improving and starting to be less reactive towards them. He really is taking everything we are doing on board. He's listening and paying more attention to us. He loves learning new things, playing and lots of fuss. We're super excited to see how things will be in a few months time as we have only had him just over a week! Thank you to the whole team at Leicester Animal Rescue for giving so many dogs a good home.

Thank you for speaking to me today, Bella has been doing very well since her adoption, she loves the attention and gets an endless amount of it. We feel so privileged to have been chosen for her and couldn't have imagined our lives without her. Thank you for trusting in us, we love her so so much. I have attached a few photos from Christmas and a recent walk also a tiktok video we took of her from the shelter and on the way home.. Regards, Mrs Wiffen
