SOOO happy for Chico  :)

Hopefully the pain of letting him go has eased knowing he is happy in his new home.

I know they are only photos, but it does look like they love him a lot!!!  :Luv:

It does, doesn't it - that's the most rewarding thing about looking at them - he's with every member of the family by the looks of things, and he looks very well content.   :)

He was in such a state when Gillian first took him in - couldnt believe the difference in a cat in a couple of weeks.   And to see him now.......   I definitely think there's pedigree in him with enough mog to make the sum of the parts an echantingly handsome whole.   :Luv:  Loving the fact he's having a good look to see if there's any beans and chips for him, and helping his little girl to get out of (into?) bed.   :evillaugh:

Oh Gillian this is wonderful news  ;D

Chico has always had a special place in my heart too, his status was never going to make re-homing easy, but it looks like it was worth the wait. What a lovely family he's got now! I'm assuming he's an only cat to be quite THAT happy so soon?  ;)

Well done, I bet it was a bit of a wrench for you though? He's been with you ages.  :hug: :hug: :hug:

Oh Lordy Lordy Lordy!!!    You have no idea how ridiculously happy seeing those pics has made me feel this morning!!  :wow: :wow: :Luv2: :Luv2:  Am grinning from ear to ear.  Chico is such a lovely cat, and he so deserved the best, but it just goes to show how you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your Prince sometimes.

He looks sooooo settled, and is clearly loved by his new family.  Well done Chico - you worked your magic on the people who were most able to appreciate it after all.   :hug: :hug:  May you have a long and very happy life in your new family.

So after the first 'failed' homing, Chico is now completely settled in his forever home. He's been there about a month now and I think you'll agree he's landed on his feet!

No, Chico wouldnt have been able to go outside there anyway - its a flat and no outside space. I didnt have high expectations myself of this working - Chico is a dominant cat - it was just if there was a chance it might work then I had to try for him. It has escalated today, with fur flying apparently  :(  Initial reports werent brilliant anyway and the update tonight has confirmed it really.

Oh Gillian; forgive me but really he hasn't been there very long :(

Any chance at all of persuading the lady to give him another week?

We had such a bad time of it with Freddie & Billy Whiz to start with including the crate business but they became the very best of buddies before too long esp after Fred was allowed outside or is Chico going to be indoor only due to FIV status?

Just seems very soon  :hug:

Chico's coming back  :( he's too dominant with the other cat, hounding the poor thing when he's trying to use the litter tray, or when he's eating .  The lady had Chico in a crate to start with, lots of feliway on the go, exchanging scents, supervised meetings etc, but no go. Well, I guess its proved something (that I probably already knew), that he needs to be Top Cat  ;) and the only cat.

Have everything crossed that Chico's new home will work out so well for him that he never has to leave or worry about his future ever again.   :hug: :hug:

Sending hugs for you too, as I know you'll miss him very much, but you've always set out to do the right thing for this beautiful boy, and all being well, things will work out splendidly.  :)

I was only thinking about Chico (and you!) the other day as we hadn't heard from you for a while. What great news to start the year off! :)

Have everything crossed that it works out, for him :crossed: it's bound to be upsetting to see him go off as you've looked after him for so long and restored him to his former glory from the bedraggled scrap he was when you found him :hug:
