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 Cheddar and Catkins, from Trafford, Manchester, need a homeMeow! We're delighted to meet you! We are Cheddar and Catkins - you can probably tell who's who from the names...but I am Cheddar, a ginger boy, somewhat chubby (I call it cuddly!) with a lovely white bib; my best friend in the whole world is Catkins. She's black, long and tall, somewhat Sphinxey - we may look different but we are in fact brother and sister! Our personalities are a little different too. I love being around humans, so would adore any home where I can be the centre of attention and receive all the tummy tickles and ear rubbing I can handle. Catkins also likes attention, but takes a bit longer to get to know you. But don't worry, I can cope with being the focus of all your love for the first few weeks while she settles in! We are both a year old, have been neutered, and would be fine in a home with children or other cats (not sure about dogs, they can be a bit scary!). If you would love a beautiful pair of cuddly, playful and affectionate felines, then please get in touch, as we're waiting to find our new home.
CHEDDAR & CATKINS are at Cats Protection - Trafford. Rehoming in: The Trafford Area and South Manchester, (postcodes: WA13, WA14, WA15, M16, M17, M31, M32, M33, M41).

Rescue Cat Tia from Cats Protection - Stockport, needs a homeHello everyone! My name’s Tia and I’m a beautiful, neutered, tortie girl who’s around 2-3 years old. I was found as a stray and that wasn’t working out so well for me as I had a bite wound which wasn’t healing so well. My luck changed though, when I was found and rescued. I’ve been looked after and my leg is all better. With some time spent on me I’ve grown in confidence and have become a real friendly girl although being a tortie means I like to be Top Cat! I’m hoping for a home to call my own now. I’d love a home with a garden, especially as I love to play and roll around in the sun! I’d be best as your only pet and would be best with no children too. I’d love somewhere quiet and with owners who will give me time to settle in to my new home - think that could be you?

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.
TWO BOYS are at Kathy's Cat Rescue, The Wirral. Rehoming in Cheshire and Merseyside. To make an enquiry, please call: 07746 134803 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Two Boys on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Maisey from National Animal Welfare Trust Tameside, Manchester, needs a homeHello, my name is Maisey. I am around 10 years old, neutered, and my rescuers say I have a lovely purr-sonality! Life was good, until one day when the humans I loved and trusted moved away. I thought they were taking me with them, but they didn't. When my rescuers took me in, I was in a poor state. But thanks to their tender loving care, I am much better now. I am thoroughly enjoying having a warm, comfy bed and regular food. I am definitely not a fussy eater, just grateful for my regular meals. Sadly, due to my difficult life I have a touch of arthritis in one of my front legs, and a fracture in the other which resulted in an amputation; but I am pain free now and loving life; I can manage the stairs and have adjusted well.  I am hoping to find a quiet home, possibly with retirees; I would love home where I have a safe space, where there are no other cats, and especially a home where I will never be left behind again…

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.
MR DARCY is at Cat Homing and Rescue (CHAR), Warrington. Rehoming in: North Cheshire and South Lancashire.

Rescue cat Jess from Kathy's Cat Rescue, Wirral, needs a homeMeow! My name is Jess, and as you may be able to tell from my photo, I am a rather timid girl at the moment, but I am improving little by little; I do still like my safe spot under the bed. Unfortunately I have had a difficult time of it recently, 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 shy cats like myself and who has the time to give me the space I need to come out of my furry black shell. I do not like other cats and being nervous would prefer to be in a nice quiet home without children. I have been neutered, am fully vaccinated and microchipped, and would love to find a home with access to the outside if possible. I am about a year 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.
JESS is at Kathy's Cat Rescue, The Wirral. Rehoming in Cheshire and Merseyside. To make an enquiry, please call: 07746 134803 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Jess on Cat Chat, thank you!
