The RSPCA is appealing for a home for a cat who can’t bear to be apart from a Peppa Pig blanket – so staff are insisting they go together!


Poppy has been at the RSPCA’s Stapeley Grange cattery, in Nantwich, Cheshire, since April after being found as a sick stray in nearby Crewe.

Sadly, despite adoptions picking up at the cattery, no one has reserved the 11-year-old cat.

Lee Stewart, manager of the cattery, said: “She is a friendly cat but she doesn’t like other cats so she would need to be the only one in her new home. What she does like, though, is her Peppa Pig blanket which she is always curling up under in her pod. Other blankets just aren’t the same for her, so she will have to go to her new home with her beloved Peppa Pig blanket.

“She has been with us for six months now and we don’t know why because she is a lovely cat.

“Ideally we would rehome her in an adult-only household with experienced cat owners. She likes getting a lot of fuss and we know that she will make a lovely companion for someone out there.”
