In April, Poppy was an emaciated, sick stray cat brought to RSPCA Stapely Grange in Nantwich, Cheshire in the UK. Six months later, her health has improved, but she’s still looking for the purrfect home with her new best friend – a Peppa Pig blanket she loves to hide under.

Poppy has a special affinity for this blanket in particular, and since no other blanket seems to make her feel as safe and secure, it will go with her to a new home when she finds the right one.


The 11-year-old cat loves people but isn’t a fan of other cats. Her left ear bears the scars of a rough life on the streets.

The manager of the cattery, Lee Stewart, said in a press release:

“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…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.”

If you think Poppy or another cat at Stapely Grange would be a good fit for you, call them at 0300 123 0722, email them at, or check them out on Facebook.
