Rescue cat Harry from RSPCA – Cheshire, Altrincham, needs a homeHello, my name is Harry. I'm a very handsome 4 year old neutered male cat, and I'm looking for my new home. I'm super affectionate; love cuddles, fuss and play time! You might notice from my photo that I only have one eye, however, this doesn't bother me. I can still catch anything on a string - especially feathered toys! I also really really like Dreamies. I'm very happy when I get my paws on those! I do enjoy a bit of catnip too. I would quite like a home with a garden, although as I have one eye I would benefit from being supervised whilst outdoors. A quiet area would be best for me, away from busy roads, and a home where I can get plenty of company and cuddles, as I'm such an affectionate chap. Please get in touch for more information about me. Advice & Tips on caring for a blind cat here: Caring for a blind cat

Rescue Cat Alfie from RSPCA - Cheshire needs a homeHello, my name’s Alfie. I’m a quiet 7 year old, black and white chap and sadly, I’ve found myself in the position of needing a new home. My lovely owner isn’t well and is unable to look after me. I’m really no bother, I’m used to a quiet home and am more than happy spending a lot of my day sleeping or having a look out of the windows, watching the world go by and coming to find someone for cuddles - I do enjoy cuddles too. I did go outside at my previous home and have been neutered and microchipped and will be vaccinated by the time I come to live with you. I think I’d be the purrfect addition to your family so please get in touch soon!

Rescue cat Huggy Bear from Cats Protection Stockport, Cheshire, Lancashire, needs a homeHi there; I am Huggy Bear and I am a super sleek, handsome, black chap. I am around 6 years old and have been neutered. I have been described as having a wonderful character, I am easy going and very friendly, and because all those things are lovely I will agree wholeheartedly. I am on the prowl for a loving new home; somewhere without other pets so that I can receive all the love and attention. I could live with older children as long as no-one minds having me as their shadow or a snuggly lap warmer. I would like a garden, so that I can patrol and make sure everything is ship shape. I have all my paws crossed that my purrfect human is reading this and will arrange to meet me as soon as possible. If you think I could be the cat for you, please get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue Cat Square from Cats Protection - Warrington Adoption Centre, Warrington, needs a homeHi there, my name’s Square and I’m a 1 year old, handsome, cat with a sleek, shiny black coat. I’m a quiet boy who’s looking for a home where I’ll be loved and cherished. I haven’t got a lot of confidence so I’m hoping my new family will have lots of time and patience to give me as that will help me to come out of my shell and blossom into a cat that’ll fit right in and leave you wondering how you managed without me! I’m best in a home with no children and I’m not sure about sharing with dogs but I could share with other cats. I’ve been neutered and am just waiting to meet my potential new best friend, get in touch on the contacts below if you think that could be you!

Rescue cat Smudge, at RSPCA - Macclesfield, South East Cheshire & Buxton, needs a new homeHello, my name is Smudge.  I'm a sweet and very handsome young chap of two years old, and I arrived in rescue from a large group of over twenty cats.  Due to this I haven't had much interaction with humans and am consequently very shy, though I'm fine with other friendly cats.  Given all the time, understanding and patience I need to gain confidence in a calm home I'll be able to show you what a lovely, affectionate little fellow I am - full of purrs and head butts!  I've been health checked, worm and flea treated, microchipped and neutered, and have started my vaccinations, so I'm ready to find my wonderful forever home.  Could you give me the love and gentle reassurance that will help me to thrive?  Please get in touch.

Rescue cat Mickey from RSPCA – Macclesfield, South East Cheshire & Buxton, needs a homeHello, my name is Mickey. I'm a handsome black and white 4 year old male neutered cat looking for my new home. I've had a tough time recently as my owner was evicted and left me behind. The RSPCA took me in and I am learning to trust humans again. I'm a really lovely boy but am quite timid, which I suppose isn't too surprising given what's happened! I've been partnered up with a resident cat here at the rescue and it's really helped me feel much less scared, so I think a home with another friendly cat would be great for me. A nice quiet home where I can feel safe and secure would be best. I'd prefer a home without children and dogs, probably a bit too noisy/scary for me! I've been health checked, wormed/flead and microchipped and I'm having my vaccinations. Now I just need to find my forever new home with loving new humans. Please get in touch if you think you could offer me a home.

Rescue cat Miss Lemon from National Animal Welfare Trust Tameside, Manchester, needs a homeHi there, my name is Miss Lemon and I am a beautiful smokey grey & white lass. I am 5 years old and have been neutered. I find myself in need of a new home; you see, my human has had to go into a home and I can’t go with her; I am missing her and a loving home very much, all this change has been quite unsettling for me. I am hoping that I will find a home where I can be the only pet and where there are only adults, as I am not used to small humans. I am a lovely little lady, with a little bit of ‘cattitude’, so I will need a patient human who will let me have all the time I need to adjust and get to know you properly. It would be fabulous if you have a garden as I do like a little potter around. Now, if you think I should be the cat that comes home with you, do get in touch as soon as you possibly can, my bags could be packed in a jiffy.

Rescue cats Two Boys from Kathys Cat Rescue, Wirral, Cheshire, Merseyside, need a homeHi there, we are a pair of 3 year old, neutered chaps. I am ginger and white tabby and my pal there on the right is black and white. We have come in to rescue because we have lost our human and there was no-one left to care for us. We are looking for a home where we can get the attention we love so much; we are very well behaved and could be either house cats or go outside if there is a garden for exploring. While we came in together and would like to stay that way, we understand that it is a big ask to take on two cats; so if it was absolutely the only way to find a home, we could live alone. We are happy to share our home with other cats and children, not so sure about dogs though. If you could offer us the home we crave, please get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cat Mr Darcy from Cat Homing and Rescue, Warrington, needs a new homeHello there, my name is Mr Darcy, because I am so charming and handsome of course! I am around 3 years old and have been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. I came in to the rescue after I was found straying; I am a loveable and affectionate chap, who is happy to live with children (5+); I may be able to live with other cats but definitely would like a home with no dogs. I had a check up with the vet and am in excellent health and I think it must be my turn to find a loving family soon. If you have a safe garden that I could explore that would be fantastic. If you think I could be a purr-fect fit for you please get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cat Jess from Kathy's Cat Rescue, Wirral, needs a homeI’ve been waiting over a year… Please pick me! Meow! My name is Jess, and as you may be able to tell from my photo, I am a rather timid girl, I have improved since I arrived a year ago,but I have decided that I would like an outdoor home; I do still like my safe spot under the bed.  I had a difficult time of it, with my previous owner having to leave me and causing a lot of disruption at an important time in my life. I would love a patient new owner who has experience with semi feral cats like myself and who has the space to let me live my own life but still make sure that I have regular meals and am safe. I do not like other cats, I really do like to keep to myself. I have been neutered, am fully vaccinated and microchipped, and would love to find a home outside if possible. I am about two years old, so have plenty of time to grow and really am just looking for a kind human to take a chance on me. I know you won't regret it once you get to know me and once I learn to trust you. If you think you could make such a big difference to my life, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
