Success Story - Smokey and The Colonel

We thought we’d end the year with a lovely success story – back in the summer we had two loveable cats Smokey and the Colonel. Smokey was very outgoing whereas Colonel was quite a shy boy. His new owners have been in touch us and were happy to let us share their story. Smokey is now renamed Humphrey and Colonel is now called Hugo – we love the new names. We would like to thank them for their lovely email and photos. Here is what they had to say….

“Thank you so much for your email and for your help in finding us our now beloved cats.

When we came to Exeter Axhayes back in July we knew that we wanted to adopt two cats and when we came inside we absolutely fell in love with Smokey and The Colonel, who are now known as Humphrey and Hugo. I have attached some photographs of them for you to see.

They have both settled in very well to their new environment and are now completely ruling the roost in the way that only cats can! Humphrey, the confident one, settled in immediately and is a real character. He is always quick to let us know when he is hungry.... whatever time of the day or night! The problem that he had with his weepy eye is, unfortunately, ongoing but a great deal better than it was and not really causing him any discomfort. He is under the supervision of our local vet who feels it may possibly have been stress related and will continue to improve, the more he settles in to his new home. Hugo came to us as an extremely nervous cat and hid himself away from us for the first few days. After lots and lots of love and patience, though, he has really come out of his shell. He has gained lots of confidence and is now a different cat! He loves lots of attention and cuddles and enjoys relaxing in the sunshine. He does still become a little apprehensive when new people come into the house but has a safe place where he goes until he feels happy to join us again.

Both of our boys have brought us so much joy and we now can't imagine our life without them! We are so pleased to have been able to offer them a place in our home but we couldn't have done that without the wonderful work of the Cats Protection. So on behalf of Humphrey and Hugo and all of the other cats who you help ... thank you!”

We would like to thank their new owners again for getting in touch with us – we always love to hear how our ex-Axhayes cats are settling in to your homes  or maybe you’ve adopted any of our kittens which are now fully grown and enjoying life. You can share these on our Facebook page or you can email them to us at Thank you.
