Thanks to that AMAZIMG local communtiy support, Fanny is well-known to MANY commuters who travel through Gipsy Hill station, where she can often be found sitting on passengers’ laps or offering herself up for a stroke.
For those who don’t know Fanny… Fanny was helped by the very kind help of the local Gipsy Hill community in 2016…
When Fanny needed emergency treatment after she was hit by by a car. Fanny’s owners were told that their pet had a ruptured diaphragm, and would need surgery costing in the region of £2,000. Upon hearing the devastating news, Fanny’s fans set up a fundraising page to pay for treatement. Once the fundraising site was set up it reached its target within just an hour!
Fanny is a very special cat, with a very special local communty at Gipsy Hill!
And when Fanny sadly became seriously ill in December 2020 with an infection, it was her community friends who again rallied to her help and supported her with £880 in donations to get her well. After many months of nusring at home with her owner and many vet vistis and treatment, she is back again visiting Gipsy Hill Station with the warmer weather.

A message from a Gipsy Hill Friend
Hello commuters. I’m Fanny The Gipsy Hill cat. Even though I’m little, I was born all the way back in 2011. I really enjoy coming to see you all and keeping your laps warm!
I have a loving home nearby with two fellow cats and a human. They feed me well and I have lots of nice, clean and warm beds.
Thank you for stroking me and making me so well known on social media.
And please keep my corner litter free.
I don’t even need cat litter…
Please don’t leave out food for Fanny on the platform, as we are having problems with foxes. If people would like to help Fanny, then the website page is best to share. https://gipsyhillfriends.org/fannythecat/
