So…. today has been a very special day for Daenerys. She has finally gone off to a new home with Antonia Kinlan and her lovely family. We wish her all the very best. Thank you to Victoria for fostering Daenerys and for letting her go even though she really didn’t want to!! Thank you for choosing Heronbank 🥰

Rapunzel, Rowena, Feisty and Ahab

Yesterday we saw 4 of our gorgeous Heronbank kitties go off to their new homes!! ❤️ Rapunzel and Rowena have gone to live with Karen Hallam, Ahab with Natalie McLean and family, and Feisty with Jenni Sutcliffe and her son Michael. We wish them all a long and happy life in their new homes and would like to thank Cath Vergerson, Ann Parker, Susan Crowther, Amber Nelmes Lindsay Smith and Meeeeeeee for fostering these fantastic lot! We love a happy ending 😊


Another one of our super cute fluffy little bundles went off to her new home. Opalle was adopted by Amy and Daniel. We wish her the very best of luck. Thank you Sarah Jane Webster for fostering little miss naughty pants! I know you’ll miss her.


So…. the first of the very popular X kittens has flown the nest today. Xabier has gone to live with Hannah Cannon Nee Ford and family. Hannah is one of our very own fosterers so we will be able to keep tabs on him and know he will be very well looked after! Thank you to Vikki Smith and Sarah Jane Webster for fostering this gorgeous little boy and for getting him ready for family life. Good luck Xabier 😍


We all got super excited on Saturday as Gnat, our longest staying resident, went off to his new home with Susan Coates 🥰 Thank you to Lindsay Smith for being a fantastic foster mummy to Gnat and for finally letting him come out of hiding and parting with him. Good luck Gnat!! 😃

Sweetie and Westie

So… on Thursday, Sweetie and Westie left the Rescue to go and live with Cath Colledge who I know is going to spoil them rotten! Lucky little girlies! Thank you Cath for adopting this lovely pair and thank you Stephen Slater and family for fostering them while in rescue. Please keep us posted on how they are getting on 🥰
