Ockendon, Grays, Upminster, Hornchurch & Rainham)
I’ve been waiting over a year. Please pick me!
>>Third time lucky for Patch?
Hi there, my name is Patch, I've been through some sad times over the last couple of years. After being with my first owner from birth I was very sad when he passed away... I then happily found a lovely new owner who also sadly passed away. So I am once again alone in the world. I'd love a cosy, quiet home where I can have some love and fuss. I have lots of personality, but after being a much loved family pet for so long, I'm starting to feel a little bit down in the whiskers at the rescue. I'd love a to have a proper home as soon as possible. I'm 12 years old now and would love to be settled again with a special human. Please come down to meet me... Maybe you could give me another chance?To make an enquiry, please call: 01708 854567 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and pleasemention you saw this notice on Cat Chat, thank you!
LEAH & MANDY at National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton. (Rehoming in N.E. Essex and S.E. Suffolk)
>> A couple of beautiful young girls looking for their first homes.
Hello, my name's Leah and I'd like to find a home for me and my sister, Mandy. Just so you can tell us apart, I have a black coat and Mandy has a tortoiseshell one. We are about 1 year old and we have been at the Rescue since we were very small kittens when we were brought in with our mum. I am the most confident and friendly girl. I like a fuss once I get to know you and I am always the first one to go and investigate new things. My sister Mandy is still shy and she is not keen to go exploring like me, she just needs a little more time. I think we both need fairly quiet homes where people have the time and patience to help us grow in confidence. You see we have no idea what it is like to live in a real home so it will take a bit of getting used to. We both get on well with other cats but we've never had experience of dogs or children, although I suppose we'd be fine with sensible older children. If you are a patient cat lover please come and say hello, we would really appreciate your friendship. We are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

MILLIE at Springfield Animal Rescue, Chelmsford, Essex
>> sweet tabby lady needs a loving home
Hello my lovely, thanks for stopping by! Allow me to introduce myself - my name's Millie and I guess I don't need to tell you I'm a tabby girl - as I can tell you're a smart cookie! Now I'm what's known as a friendly but independent kitty, and between you and me that means you get a good deal. I like a fuss and I'm interested to hear what you've been up to each day, but I'm quite capable of amusing myself if you're out at work or whatever it is you do! Sounds perfect doesn't it? Now, brace yourself for a surprise..... Yes, I'm 13! I know I don't look it.. I certainly don't act it - I'm known to chase butterflies still! I'm trim, I'm in good health and even had recent dental. Want to find out more? I know I do!

NOIR at RSPCA Stort Valley. (rehoming in: Saffron Walden in Essex to Broxbourne in Hertfordshire - including Bishop’s Stortford, Harlow and surrounding villages.)
>> Super friendly chap deserves a second chance to know what a real loving home is
Hi my name is Noir, I am such a friendly chap, I follow my fosterer everywhere while he's feeding and cleaning the other cats. You may be surprised at this as I was from a very neglectful home previously. I am around 10 years old but I am young at heart let me tell you. I am a lovely sweet boy and have a best friend here called Toffee, we share a pen and have become great pals, we eat together, sleep together, live together and follow each other everywhere. I can be homed separately but it would be wonderful if we could stay together. So why not come down and meet me and my pal, see how sweet I am and give me a second chance at a real loving home. Purrrrs for now, see you soon!

TOFFEE at RSPCA Stort Valley. (rehoming in: Saffron Walden in Essex to Broxbourne in Hertfordshire - including Bishop’s Stortford, Harlow and surrounding villages.)
>> An adorable boy!
Hello, I'm Toffee. I suppose I was given that name because of my gorgeous champagne coloured coat. I'm 5 years old, I've been neutered and now I'm waiting for a new home. When I first came to the shelter I'm sorry to say that I wasn't very friendly. I'd been very neglected in my previous home so was wary of all humans. But, after a few months of pampering and spoiling here, I now realise what a great life a cat can have if he's in a loving environment - I now love being picked up, stroked and cuddled! So I want to put the past behind me and find a loving home of my own. I would need a home in the country so that I could have a little bit of freedom to get out into the fields and woods to hunt and explore. I get on well with other cats. In fact I must mention my best friend Noir; we live eat and sleep together at the moment and he would really love to share a home with me (it's worth a try). I have to admit that I'd prefer an adult-only home; I don't think I would like to share a home with young children and I'm not sure about dogs, either. So, how about it, can you give me (and Noir?) a new start in life?

ELM at Basildon Cat Rescue, Basildon, Essex
>> Gorgeous shy boy needs a peaceful home
Hello, my name is Elm. I'm a handsome short haired black and white boy of about six years old, and I came into rescue after my owner sadly died. I'm a delightful chap but I really need a new human friend who is experienced with nervous pusscats and who'll be able to help me overcome my shyness, and understand that if I hiss (but never bite) it's just to let you know I'm feeling frightened. A quiet household with plenty of time to settle in will enable me to show you my truly affectionate, fuss-loving (and food loving!) nature. A garden to play in, an owner to love me and a caring home without young children or dogs will suit me perfectly. I'm vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Could you offer me a forever home?

OZZY at Basildon Cat Rescue, Basildon, Essex
>> A cute, playful little boy.
Hello, I'm Ozzy. I'm a tabby, neutered boy cat and I'd like a forever home. I came to the Rescue with my 2 siblings when I was just 3 months old. We'd had a rough start to life because we were born outside as our mum was homeless. I'm much more grown up now (I'm 5 months old now, you know) and I'm fully domesticated so I think it's time I found a home of my own. I'm a little shy with new people, that's to be expected, but once I get to know you I really enjoy a fuss. So, what do I do all day? That's easy, I just play and play! It would be great if you already had other cats because then I would have someone to play with. I'm not sure about dogs but, if it wants to play all day then I'm your cat! I'd love a garden to explore as well. Can you help me?

PHOEBE at Harlow, Epping Forest & District Cats Protection. (rehoming in M11 corridor from Woodford Green to Saffron Walden, including Loughten, Epping, Harlow, Sawbridgeworth, Bishop's Stortford, Dunmow, Stansted, Mountfitchet and surrounding areas)
>> Phoebe would like a quiet home so she can blossom
Hello, you seem nice. I'm a little shy and am hoping to find someone quiet who will let me blossom into the lovely girl I'm just waiting to be. I'm black and white with pretty markings and am a really gentle little girl, I'm only 6 months old too so I'm still quite young. To be honest I'm still a bit of a Mummy's girl and I just really need a home with a kind loving new Mum or Dad to give me the confidence to come out of my shell. Once I know you, I enjoy getting a cuddle. I've been neutered and am not sure about dogs, cats or children as I haven't really met any yet. So, do you think you could find a little room in your heart to give me a wonderful start to my life by giving me a forever home?

LILY at Colne Valley Cats Protection, Braintree. (Rehoming in: Braintree and Halstead in North Essex)
>> She's an affectionate girl.
Hello, my name is Lily and I'm looking for a new home with a little garden that I can enjoy. You see, the last couple I lived with separated but neither of them could take me with them, so I ended up here! I'm 6 years old, I've been neutered but I still love playing with my toys and I quite like a cuddle every now and then. OK, I can be a bit temperamental at times so I would be better in a home where I'm the only pet and where there are no young children. But I'm sure that, with the right loving people, I will settle down and start enjoy my life again.
To make an enquiry about Lily, please call: 0845 260 1384 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and please mention you saw this notice on Cat Chat, thank you!
DOREEN at Bromley & District Cat Rescue. (Can rehome to West Kent, Essex, Surrey and Greater London)
>> Pretty little tortie lady is waiting patiently for her forever home
Oh hello there sweetie! My name's Doreen and I'm a gentle little puss of 4 years old. The lovely people at the rescue are dismayed that I've been looking for a home for 2 years now. I can't understand it either! I'm affectionate and friendly, I'm young and healthy too, with a gentle nature. They think its because I can be a little shy when people first come to visit, also I politely let the other cats go first. But when I know someone is friendly, I'll come on over for a nose bump and face rub! Anyway, you know where to find me, sitting here, just waiting for a lovely someone to take me home. I know it will happen someday, I just need to be patient. To make an enquiry about lovely Doreen, please call: 0208 464 6035 or Email: email@example.com , and please mention you saw this notice on Cat Chat, thank you!

BEN at Bromley & District Cat Rescue. (can rehome to North/West. Kent, Greater London, and parts of Essex & surrey)
>> Handsome young lad, seeks loving 'forever home'
Hi, my name's Ben, and I'm two years old. My previous family had a child with an allergy, so they didn't want me anymore. They shut me in a cat carrier and left me there for at least a week, it was awful. I was glad to get to the rescue after that, I can tell you! I'm a bit shy at first with new people, but if you're kind I will soon show you how loving and loyal I am. I like company, so someone who is at home for part of the day would be great. I get on with other cats, but would prefer no dogs or children. I'm healthy, neutered, and ready to find my 'forever home'. If you could love me, please ring and ask about Ben - just say I'm the handsome one with the white flash, they'll know!To ask about lovely Ben, please call: 0208 464 6035 or Mobile: 07788 627130 or Email: email@example.com, and please mention you saw Ben on Cat Chat, thank you!
