Farm Cats needing Homes

Could you Foster?
Many shelters and rescue groups rely on volunteer fosterers to care for cats and kittens 'between homes'. Do you have some time and TLC to spare?
About Cat Fostering »

Indoor Cats
Want a cat, but live in a flat? Some cats can be better suited to the indoor life: Cats with F.I.V., deaf cats, blind cats, nervous or elderly cats, or simply cats who have previously been used to living indoors.

Ellie 12 year old female at Goldies Essex ELLIE at Goldies Cat Rescue, Essex. (Rehoming in Basildon, Romford, Chelmsford, Thurrock, Southend-on-Sea & Upminster)
I’ve been waiting for a home for over 1 Year. Please pick me!
>> Gorgeous girl who really deserves her luck to change

Hi there, my name is Ellie, I am 12 years young and neutered. I am looking for a new home of my own. I was happy in a home for 10 years but got stressed when a baby arrived as she pulled my tail. Since then I have not had such a good time at all. So now I am looking for a new family for the rest of my life, with people who will let me settle at my own pace. I would like a quiet home with a cosy lap to curl up on, and I will give you love and head-bumps back in return. I love a bit of catnip and I can show you how I chase my own tail! I would like a garden to potter round in and a home with no other cats. I hope that after reading this you will consider adopting me please.
To ask about Ellie, please call: 07969 318443 or Email: goldiesoldies@hotmail.com, and please mention you saw her on Cat Chat, thank you!
black cat seeks home london bromley 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: bromleyrescuecats@gmail.com, and please mention you saw Ben on Cat Chat, thank you!
Female black and white cat needs home Essex LUCY at The Scratching Post, Waltham Abbey (rehoming in Essex & Hertfordshire)
>> Shy black and white lady needs an indoor home

Hello, my name is Lucy. I'm a beautiful little short haired black and white lady, and I'm looking for a caring permanent home with an experienced cat owner who will be able to offer me love and security. I came into rescue from my previous home after becoming scared to go outside, although I am really getting my confidence back now. I am not as shy as I was, but I can be a little temperamental at times, so a kind human who understands that I need plenty of time to settle in and gain confidence will be my perfect companion. A peaceful home without children will suit me best. I have been spayed. Do you think that you could offer me the safe, loving forever home I'm longing for?
To make an enquiry about Lucy, please call: 01992 626110 or Email: susan.delaney@aol.co.uk, and please mention you saw this notice on Cat Chat, thank you!

>> Looking for a comfy sofa to relax on

Hello there, my name is Betty. I am a gorgeous grey and white neutered lady.

male black and white cat looking for a home in braintree essex OZZIE at Cats Protection - Colne Valley. (Rehoming in: Braintree and Halstead in north Essex.)
>> Sweet little lad looking for a confidence boost

Hi there, my name is Ozzie and I am a handsome lad, 3 years old and neutered. I am a sweet little lad, but I am shy and nervous when meeting new people and my new human would need to bear that in mind and give me time; however, once I get to know you I am a very friendly boy. I am hoping to find a new home with adults only, those little humans move too fast for me and no dogs either. I have grown so much since I came into the rescue as a traumatised chap from being in too many unsuitable homes, the question is can you help me grow more into a confident cat? I have lots of love to give, along with headbumps and in return for fuss and a chat, I would be happy to share it with you. So, if you think you could be my perfect human then get in touch as soon as you can.

>> Lovely lady in need of pampering

Hello, my name is Kelli. I'm a beautiful tabby-tortoiseshell coated lady in search of a caring forever home. I was found very poorly and emaciated in a garden, and despite being given the all-clear by the vet it has taken a while for me to start feeling better and gaining weight. I'm now doing really well with an improved appetite and am ready to find a loving human friend who will continue to give me lots of TLC in a home of my very own. I have been spayed. Do you think that you could offer me a safe loving home with all the care and affection I deserve? Please get in touch!

playful male cat looking for home in essex RAMBO at National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, Grays, Essex.
>> Beautiful boy Rambo just loves to play!

Hiya, my name's Rambo! I'm a lively fun loving boy aged 2 years. The rescue people think I'm a very pretty boy with markings like a Bengal... whatever one of those is! I love to play with my toys and the people are always falling about clutching at their sides and making that strange noise they call laughing! I'm afraid I don't like being fussed or cuddled – no ones sure why but I make up for it with plenty of character. I've had a sensitive tummy but it has settled down now that I've been put on a certain type of food. The good news is that its inexpensive food and you get it from normal shops! Because of controlling what I eat though, it means I need to be an indoor cat in an adult home. Sorry to be a demanding little guy but I know there's a special human out there for me who will see me for the fun little companion I am! I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and have been wormed and had flea control treatment. I will be homed with 4 weeks free insurance cover.
If you think this sweet fellow would make a great addition to your home, please call 01375 376682 or email brian.gloria@virginmedia.com and please mention you saw this notice on Cat Chat, thank you!
