Ambrose Tumbletoes Update

So many people ask us for updates on Ambrose Tumbletoes because his story touched so many hearts. This little Persian lost both his eyes and survived several gruelling operations to become an affectionate, confident and happy little boy, living with very experienced owner Olive and her feline family. Ambrose’s story encapsulates in one example all the reasons our little Rescue is so important. Barbara’s dedication and love and the relationships she has built with other selfless people like Celia Hammond give little Persians in distress the chance of a new beginning, and just like Ambrose a happy ending to their sad stories.

‘Mom’ Olive says

”  I know a lot of people have been asking after Ambrose,so as his “Mom”here is an update on his life with me & the other cats. Ambrose loves being outside in all weathers & as I have a very secure  walled garden, It is a perfect safe & sunny spot for him to enjoy.Sometime ago I bought him an expensive outdoor waterproof cat house which keeps him warm in Winter & cool in Summer.Earlier this year Ambrose became the proud owner of a Summer house,his Pod,which he happily sleeps in most evenings until it’s time to go to bed. During the day the back door is often left open so he can come and go as he pleases.

Ambrose has a very long lovely  coat which thankfully he likes having groomed, purring contentedly whilst I brush him.

Ambrose has a terrific sense of smell and feeding time is a bit of a challenge as Ambrose always has to check out what everyone else is eating in just in case he is missing out on something!

His hearing is impressive too and he is very independnt, quite single minded and always determined to do his own thing. He purrs a lot, but is otherwise very quiet, almost ghostlike ,with just the occasional squeak, which usually indicates he wants something to eat.

All the other cats are very tolerant of Ambrose, so he’s a happy & contented gentle giant,infact he’s such a cool cat that nothing fazes him apart from wriggling when you pick him up.

Thank you to everyone who continues to express an interest in Ambrose, a very special cat who is much admired by all who know him & much loved by his “Mom”

Welcome to London Persian Rescue

We are a small personal, specialist pedigree  rescue who rehome Persians and occasionally  associated breeds throughout the UK. We rarely if ever have kittens. We are a registered charity who rely on donations and fund raising to support our work. We have no paid staff, so every penny  is spent on our Persians.  Our cats are health checked, vaccinated, de-matted and chipped prior to re-homing. We offer support and advice on an on going basis, and many of our adopters keep in touch. Visit our available cats page to see who needs a home,  and read our rescue stories to share our happy endings. you can read more about us on the ‘about us’ part of the site.


Kind words from Sky TV Presenter Stephen Dixon

”I have had cats all my life. They aren’t our pets, but members of our family. It is devastating to think how many need our help through neglect and mistreatment.I am proud to support London Persian Rescue, and the work they do to help our beautiful friends find loving homes”
