Last week we highlighted the challenges we and other rescues face trying to rehome black cats.

Yesterday 'Sooty' a 5 year old male black cat managed to find a wonderful forever home and staff waved him off with his wonderful new owner.

We have a waiting list for new owners looking for kittens, but often struggle finding the older cats a new home especially if they are black with over half the cats either black or black and white at the GSPCA.

Helen Holems GSPCA staff member said "It was lovely to see Sooty off to his forever home yesterday."
