Rescue cat Aurora from Cats Protection, Birmingham, needs a home Hello, my name is Aurora (rory for short). I'm a pretty 3 year old half bengal/half domestic short hair cat looking for a loving new home. I'm an affectionate girl, playful and curious. I can be a little shy at first but will soon be wanting a good chin rub! I would like access to the outside in my new home please as I am use to being indoors and outdoors. I have been an only cat so it might be best to keep this the same. I am neutered, vaccinated, chipped, flea/worm treated. Please get in touch for more information about me, as I'm such a sweetie!

Rescue cat Hedwig from Kings Heath Cat Club, Birmingham, needs homeHey there, you seem nice so perhaps I'll pop my head out and tell you my story. I'm a gentle little fella who has had a very tough life so far. I came into care after being found living rough with a hurt leg. I had broken my toes some time before, and the bones had fused together as left untreated. This has been now been repaired along with some dental work. The vets tested for FIV and I am positive (FIV is a slow-acting virus and most cats live long happy and healthy lives - there is information below to find out more) Because of my tough start to life, I am still very nervous of humans, but I will accept a fuss when it's on my terms, I will need a very patient human who will give me time and space to trust. I love other cats so despite my FIV status can easily live with another cat as long as the cat is laid back enough to accept me. I have been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated with the appropriate vaccine for FIV and have tested negative for FeLV. Please say you will have a think about giving me a home and making a massive difference to my life.
To find out about FIV: visit Cat Chat's FIV Information Page or the FIV Owners Club on our friendly forum.

Rescue cat Liquorice from Kings Heath Cat Club, Birmingham, needs a home Hello, my name is Liquorice. I'm a gorgeous black and white female cat looking for a loving indoor home. Sadly, I was left behind when my owners moved away. I'm a sweet older cat who eally enjoy cuddles and a lap to snuggle up on. I'm in a foster home with older children and cats and am fine with both. I am about 14 years old so a quiet home would be quite nice as I do quite like to lounge about. I'm not fussy with food and will eat what I'm given! I'm neutered and vaccinated. I do need a dental, but the rescue are happy to sort this out with my new owner if I am taken to their vet, although, this may already be taken care of before I'm adopted. Either way it shouldn't cause you any trouble. Please get in touch for more information about me. I would make someone such a  lovely companion.

Rescue Cats Noel & Luther, Wonky Pets Rescue, Northampton needs a homeHello, I’m Luther and I’m here with my friend Noel to see if we can find a home to call our own. We’re a pair of 5 month old boys and are both a sleek black. We’ve been vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and treated for fleas and worms. We were also treated for ringworm and as we can still shed fungal spores for a while after the treatment has ended, we’re looking for a home with no other pets and with no very, young children or elderly visitors. We weren’t bothered by it at all and the precaution is just because it can be a pain to get rid of completely. I was found with my mum and siblings and taken into care, I’m a happy, confident boy and am very friendly. I help Noel to come out of his shell, he’s a bit shy still as he didn’t get a lot of handling when he was young. We’re looking for a home with lots of love and if our new owners could also be a bit patient to win Noel round and show him that humans can be lovely. We’d love a home with a safe garden which we can get out into and play once we’ve settled in! So, if you think you’ve got room for a gorgeous pair of kittens like us, please get in touch soon?

Rescue Cat Kelly from Wonky Pets Rescue, Northampton, needs a homeHi there, my name's Kelly. I'm a 13 and a half year old male Manx cat. I came to Wonky Pets Rescue after my owner sadly passed away. I'm a huge chunk of loveliness weighing in at around 6 kilos. I'm a massive character - I really do enjoy a love and a fuss but I'll soon tell you if I've had enough. I arrived with a stress related cystitis and after extensive tests and x-rays to rule out any other complications I responded really well to my treatments and am now fine. I've been used to spending a lot of time outdoors but I know I will relish the warmth of a cosy home. I would like a home away from any busy roads so I can go outside to lie in the sunshine once I've settled in. I'm a good boy with the litter tray and I absolutely LOVE my food - I eat both wet and dry food. I have been known to be a bit of a scrapper in my time and wouldn't want to live with another male cat in the home. I would probably be okay with a female but would also relish being the only pet in the home. I would not like to live with dogs and in my senior years I would like a quieter home without small children. Being a white boy who has been outside a lot I will need to have some sunbloack on my ears in the summer months to help protect me from skin cancer. I'm neutered, microchipped, and flea and worm treated.

Rescue Cat Seraphina, Cramar Cat Rescue and Sanctuary, Birmingham needs a homeHello! I’m Seraphina and am currently the reception cat at Cramar. Before that, I was found as a stray on the streets. While I’m doing the most amazing job of meeting and greeting, it is a demanding job and I’ve decided that I’d like to retire for a life of leisure and pampering! I’m a beautiful tabby, tortie girl and they think I’m about 14 years old. I’ve been neutered and other than some age related health issues which if you speak to the staff, they will keep you right about, I’ve got plenty of years of love to share with my new humans. I’m very sociable and love to be wherever you are. I’m not that keen on being picked up though but gentle handling is very welcome. I could live with children of 10+ years but would like to be your only cat. I’m not sure about dogs though. I’d like a safe garden to have a stroll through, sunbathe and doze in. If you think you could offer me the purrfect home and think I’m the girl for you, please get in touch, I’d love to meet you!
SERAPHINA is at Cramar Cat Rescue and Sanctuary, Birmingham. Rehoming across the West Midlands. To make an enquiry, please call: 0121 445 1840, and please mention you saw Seraphina on Cat Chat, thank you!

 Rescue cat Skye, Caring Animal Rescue, Stafford, needs homeHi lovely people! I'm a very special girl of about 8 months old. I'm actually blind due to cat flu. The rescue people think I'm a lovely, lively character and will make a charming companion. I don't let my blindness get in the way of doing anything I want to. My favourite things are a fuss and a chat with my human! I would need to be a house cat, but I am very good with my litter tray. I'd like to be an only cat as I like to have (and give) lots of love and attention. I have so much to give, I really hope someone can look beyond the blindness.

Rescue cat Millie, at Wythall Animal Sanctuary, Birmingham, needs a new homeHello, my name is Millie. I’m a sweet two year old lady with a short-haired black and white coat, and I’m searching for a special loving home. When I came into rescue I was pregnant with my third litter of kittens, so I’ve been busy rearing babies for most of my short life. Now that my kittens are grown up and I’ve been spayed I’m hoping I can enjoy being a young, playful and affectionate cat in a permanent home, with a human friend or two to pamper me! I love affection on my own terms, and give lots of loving head bumps but also the occasional cheeky nip if the mood takes me. I’m inquisitive and energetic, and can’t wait to expend some energy in exploring my new home! It’s likely that I’ve been infected with coronavirus which is very common in cats, and my rescuers can provide potential adopters with further information on this. I’ll need to stay on a good quality hypoallergenic diet which is helpful for my sensitive tummy. If you think that you might be able to offer me a caring forever home, why not come and meet me?

Rescue cat Bebe from Wythall Animal Sanctuary, Birmingham, needs a home Hello, my name is Bebe. I'm a pretty tabby and white female cat looking for loving new humans to call my own. I'm about 3 years old and am neutered. I'm a lovely girl that enjoys having a fuss, on my terms of course, I am a cat after all! I've really been enjoying climbing the cat trees at the sanctuary so a home with access to a garden would be wonderful! I could have a potter about and enjoy some sunbathing. I would like a home without children please. Please get in touch with the rescue for more information about me.

Rescue Cat Birdie, Midlands Animal Rescue Team, Walsall needs a homeHello, I’m Birdie, a white and black, shorthaired, neutered girl. I’ve been a stray for a number of years, but the people here reckon I’m roughly around 6 years old. I was found pregnant and was brought into care. Happily my babies were born healthy and are all in happy, loving homes now. I wondered if I might try to find my own happily ever after. I am suspicious of people and would need someone who would give me as long as I needed to learn to trust people. Or I was thinking I could maybe live in stables or outbuildings and you could keep an eye on me and feed me regularly. I wouldn’t want to live with children, I’m not sure about dogs but I could live with other friendly cats. Could you offer me a chance at being happy? If you think you could be the person I’m looking for please get in touch?
