Nick: Manager Pets at Home Old Kent Road, with Bertie Poster Boy, London Persian Rescue

This year we have homed over 150 cats, and our scarce resources have been stretched further than ever before. Alongside Jane and Keith’s amazing eBay and Boot Fair fund raisers,  we were ‘adopted’ ourselves by Pets at Home, Old Kent Road. Barbara and the Trustees would like to extend a very big Thank YOU to Nick and his team who are always so kind and helpful.  On our most recent visit to the  Store , Nick and Bertie posed for this festive snap! We are always given a warm welcome in store by staff and customers and the kindness people show us restores our faith in human nature. Many of the children think our Persians are teddy bears, so we are able to bring a smile to many faces.

The Rescue could not exist without Barbara. She works tirelessly and devotes so much to the Rescue and we think the letter  received by our Chairman of Trustees sums up just what a great lady she is and how hard she works.

Dear Chairman of Trustees

”I have rescued two lovely Persians 7 months ago from the lovely Barbara in Tower Bridge, London , I know you have many special Persian Cat lovers supporting you, but I really do believe this lady is special

”I  just want people to recognise what a lovely job Barbara does and has done for a very very long time with such a passion, her set up for her passion for Persians is astonishing, she is such a great lady and been not very well at the moment but still and always will have a passion for her Persians, I personally believe if it was not like people like the lovely Barbara to support this lovely cause, this would not happen, she has dedicated so much to her love of Persian rescue for years, I really do believe she should be treated and recognised in some kind of way in what she has achieved, she is so wonderful – She is a great lady.


As 2014 draws to a close and we look forward to 2015 we would like to thank everyone who has helped our Persians find their happy ending and new beginning.

Wishing you a happy and peaceful Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Lucy Lu was resting when we called but a spokeswoman told us: ” we are all so thrilled, Lucy Lu is the kindest and most considerate employer anyone could have. Staff and guests are always assured of a warm and friendly welcome. Since she allowed me into her life her beauty and loving personality  make me happy  everyday”.
