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?

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!
sweet natured female cat looking for home in essex DOREEN at Bromley & District Cat Rescue. (Can rehome to West Kent, Essex, Surrey and Greater London)
I’ve been waiting for a home for over 2 Years. Please pick me!
>> 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: bromleyrescuecats@gmail.com , and please mention you saw this notice 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!
friendly female cat looking for home in essex BOW at Cuddly Critters Small Animal Rescue, South Ockenden. (Rehoming in: Basildon, Chelmsford, Harlow and Thurrock.)
>> Lovely lady has been abandoned but still loves people

Oh hello there, you seem nice - thanks for stopping by! Allow me to introduce myself... My name's Bow and I'm 3 years old (and a lady cat if your hadn't noticed!) I've had a bit of a tough time really - I was abandoned when I was very young and brought into the rescue centre. I was rehomed but quickly ended up rejected again and back in rescue when my people couldn't keep me. I'm not the kind of cat who lets it get me down and I haven't lost my faith in humans. I'm a friendly affectionate cat who likes a fuss and just desperately wants to settle down in my own home. Do you think that it could be your home?
To give this sweet girl a chance at happiness, please call: 07582 263248 or Email: kerryhillyer522@hotmail.com and please mention you saw this notice on Cat Chat, thank you!
black & white male cat looking for a home in Essex CARLOS at Cuddly Critters, South Ockenden. (Rehoming in: Basildon, Chelmsford, Harlow & Thurrock)
>> Loving cuddly boy needs a adult home.

Hi, my name is Carlos and I am a very handsome, 8 month old, black & white boy. I am on the prowl for a new home with a garden that I can explore. I came into rescue when my previous owner realised that I don't like children; so this time it is an adult only home for me please? I am perfectly happy to share you with other cats and even dogs, it is just the children thing that is a deal breaker for me; in return for your heart and home I will repay you with lots of love and cuddles. I have been neutered and am ready to go all I need now is you!
To ask about Carlos, please call: 07582 263248 or Email: kerryhillyer522@hotmail.com, and please mention you saw him 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, and I need a home in which I'll be able to stay indoors if I wish. My nervousness means 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!
