Rescue cat Kitty, at CP Bedford & Biggleswade, needs a new homeHello, my name is Kitty. I’m a very lovely, neutered lady of around 17 years old, with a short-haired black and white coat. I’m looking for a peaceful and loving home of my own, with a kind human or two who’ll be able to give me all the affection I enjoy - including lots of gentle cuddles, a welcoming lap and a comfy bed to snuggle on! I could share my home with sensible older children, but not youngsters, and I’d prefer to be your only pet. I’d love a home with a safe garden to potter around in too. I’m microchipped and have had my first vaccination; I have hyperthyroidism which is stable, and easily managed with a crushed tablet in my meals each day. I’m such a calm, affectionate and lovable lady that I will make a wonderful furry companion for someone who can offer me a permanent place in their heart and home (and on their lap)… Could that be with you?

Rescue Cat Amber, CP - Bedford & Biggleswade, Bedford needs a homeHello, I’m Amber a beautiful tabby girl of around 5 years of age. I was found as a stray and have been getting used to home comforts such as snuggling in a comfy bed and having a play on the cat scratch tower. I also rather enjoy getting attention and having a fuss and could see myself enjoying having a home to call my own! So I thought maybe a home with older children, where I’d be the only pet, a garden to have adventures in and lots of love just for me would be purrfect! Do you think you might be able to help with that? I’ve been neutered, microchipped and have started my vaccinations. If I was to find a home before I got my 2nd one, then if I’m taken back to the rescue’s vet, the cost of this would be covered. The vet did say I had a heart murmur during my check but I don’t need any treatment at the moment. If you could take me for 6 monthly checks, this will make sure all is well and if I did need treatment in future, the lovely people at Cats Protection have said that they would consider financial help if necessary. I’ve got my paws crossed that it won’t be long before I’m settling in to a home of my own.

Rescue cat Tortie, at Little Cottage Rescue, Luton, needs a new homeHello, my name is Tortie. I’m a beautiful, friendly, one year old lady with a short-haired brindle tortoiseshell coat. I’m looking for a loving permanent home where I can enjoy all the attention I require (lots!) and become a cherished furry companion. I could share a home with other friendly cats or small dogs, and I can also take sensible older children in my stride. Once I’ve been given time to settle into my new home and overcome any initial shyness I’ll be able to show you what a delightful and affectionate youngster I am. I’d enjoy having access to a safe garden to play in too. I’m microchipped, spayed and vaccinated, and ready and waiting to begin my wonderful new life. Are you the lucky human who’ll be able to offer me the caring forever home I deserve?

Rescue cat Lola from Little Cottage Rescue, Luton, needs a home Hello, my name is Lola. I'm a gorgeous black and white lovely natured cat looking for wonderful humans to live with. I'm a very affectionate girl that loves a fuss and sitting with you on the sofa. I am able to live with other cats but have not been tested with other pets. I could live with older children as I can be a little nervous and I'm not keen on being picked up. I still love fuss and affection, I just prefer to keep all four paws on the ground. I'd love access to a safe outside area please. I'm about 1 year old and am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. If you have room in your home, heart and sofa for me, please do get in touch as I'm such a nice little cat and will make some humans very happy.

Rescue Cat Ben, Homeless Cats Rescue, Luton needs a homeHello, my name’s Ben and I’m a 10 year old, ginger and white boy who’s hoping I can find my someone special. I have had a bit of an adventuresome life and it’s thought that I had never been inside until recently. I need my new owner to have lots of patience while I settle in to my new surroundings but given time I will settle and once I do I love fusses and brushing and have even learned to play with my feather on a stick! Ideally I’ll need kept inside for at least 2 months until I get used to my new owner and if I could have a spare room to settle into and feel safe before being slowly introduced to other family members. Everything’s just a bit strange to me but I can and do get used to everything with patience and love. I’m looking for a home with no children and no other pets please. I’ve been neutered and microchipped. I’m a carrier for the flu virus, this doesn’t bother me but if I’m stressed, I can sometimes sneeze and blow bubbles from my nose. Do you think you could give me the chance I’m looking for?

Rescue cat Chunky from Blue Cross, Cambridge, needs a homeHello, my name is Chunky. I'm a lovely handsome boy looking for a home and humans to call my own, can you help? I love playing, being groomed and once I'm settled in curling up on a nice warm lap. I would prefer to be the only pet in my new home please and would love access to a garden so I can enjoy a bit of sunbathing. I am able to live with older calmer children. I would love to find a loving and calm home where I can relax. I'm about 11 years old (and yes, I did sneakily leave that until last, sadly it is harder to rehome older cats - and I'm not sure why as I'm such a lovely boy with many years left!). I'm a black cat and am neutered. Please get in touch for more information about me.

Rescue Cat Maggie from Blue Cross Rehoming Centre, Cambridge, needs a homeHello there, I’m Maggie. I’m 15 years old and looking for a nice relaxed home where I can just hang out and live life in the slow lane. I know us older cats tend to get overlooked for the younger models but I still have a whole heap of love to give. I can live with children but would like to be the only pet. I enjoy relaxing in the glorious sunshine so an outside spot would be amazing. I’m neutered and looking forward to getting out of here and being your best friend.

Rescue cats Archimedes & Athens from Cat & Kitten Rescue, Watford, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, West London, needs a homeHello, we are Archimedes and Athens, a gorgeous pair of 8 month old kittens who cannot bear to be apart - we are practically joined at the hip. We are both neutered and chipped and all that important stuff. We are also very affectionate; Athens is slightly bolder than me but I am very chilled and I go with the flow. We need a safe home, away from roads as Athens is very adventurous, so a home near fields that we can explore would be ideal. We could happily live with cats, dogs and children too so basically we are purr-fect; all we need now is for you to fall in love and make the call to meet us.

Rescue cat Aliss from Cat & Kitten Rescue, Watford, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, West London, needs a homeMy name is Aliss and I am a very smart cat; that is me helping with the crossword there. I am around 15 months old and arrived heavily pregnant; I went on to have my babies almost immediately and now that they are off in their own homes I have my paws crossed that someone will choose me next for a forever home. I haven't had much to do with other cats, apart from the kittens and I was fine with them, so I may be able to join a family with cats but would be just as happy on my own. I could live with children if you have those already. I am an affectionate girl, who just needs a human of my own to love. I am neutered, chipped and vet checked and will arrive with 4 weeks free insurance. If you think I could be the one for you, purr-lease get in touch as soon as you can.
