OMG I had totally missed all the excitment.  I'm so pleased that Cheeky got through the dental OK and managed to find a new slave all in the space of a week!  What a clever boy :evillaugh:

I'm sure they will both be very happy together  :hug:

In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Well I can report that Cheeky is now safely tucked up in his new home! :)

He did really well and had a wander round the room a couple of times had head bumps with his new dad and then decided to take up residence between an armchair and sideboard.  We put his blanket down for him and he promptly moved onto it, curled up and went to sleep! lol :)

His new dad is over the moon to have him and it was great to see him wandering around albeit he was having difficulty getting up onto furniture but we suspected his back end wasn't great - hopefully that will improve with time in his new home.

We left Cheeky sound asleep on his blanket and quite relaxed and will check in on him in a few days.  :Luv2:

Well I can report that Cheeky will be going to his new home for 3pm this afternoon.  We are very sure that he will settle in well and it will take some packing to make sure I have all his bits and pieces! lol

Will let you all know how it goes later on today.

We are very sure that this is the perfect match for Cheeky and to be honest we haven't seen Cheeky light up like he did since his arrival.  Yes his new dad is older but to be honest we could rehome a cat to someone in their 50's and they could die next week so whilst it is a factor in our decision bearing in mind Cheeky's age and background we have no issues with homing him to an older gent.

That said - we always ensure that the family know that should anything happen to him that Cheeky must be returned to us but it is not something that is at the front of our mind in a decision such as this.  Cheeky deserves a good home where he can live out what time he has left in happiness and he obviously feels that this gent is for him.  To be honest the old man was smitten with Cheeky from the moment he met him and it was clear he was good for Cheeky too.  :Luv2:

Current plan will be to place Cheeky on Sunday all being well.  ;D ;)

Yay! This is such a great result.

Cheeky I hope you have a fabulously happy and long life with your new human slave.

It's a well know fact that people with pets live much longer than people without them, so I'm guessing these 2 will grow old together and spend many happy years being each others best buddies.

Huzzah for happy endings to rescues!

I can now report - rather amazingly that Cheeky boy has had a dental, scale and polish and not 1 .....yes not 1 .... of those lovely teeth needed to come out.  All he needed was a REALLY good clean and polish.

His new daddy is due to phone me tonight to find out how things went so all being well we should be able to place Cheeky into his new home very soon. :)  :)

thanks guys yes we are over the moon for the big fella.  Once the gent had met Cheekie his family did mention if he wanted to see anyone else but he was adamant - that ma boy!!  lol

We really couldn't have asked for a better match truth be told and just hope all goes well today with his dental so that we can move ahead with placing him.  paws crossed. :wish:

it must be so rewarding to enrich two lives at the same time - cats are so good for older folk

now Cheeky will have as much fish and ham as he wants for the rest of his days ;D

That's fab news.  Seems Cheeky knows what he wants from his life and being a companion cat to elderly men is what he wants to be!
