Rescue cat Shelby, at Lina’s Cat Rescue, Derby needs a homeHi there! My name is Shelby, and I am a one year old, neutered girl. I came into rescue as a pregnant stray. I was very lucky to find someone who cared for me, whilst the rescue tried to find my owners, but to no avail.  So they got me a rescue space where I soon gave birth to four kittens. Now I am looking for a forever home. I am a very playful girl, and I can show off some serious gymnastic moves! I am also very affectionate, I like laying on your chest, or being rocked like a baby. And I like to be brushed; I will sit next to you when you're doing your own hair, just waiting for my turn. I love humans, but I'm really not that keen on other cats (I made that known to my foster carer!). So I am looking for a home without other felines. And as I like to go outside, I will need a home with a safe garden. I have been microchipped, vaccinated and I am up-to-date with flea and worm treatment so I am all ready to go to my new home now. If you would like to come and meet me please get in touch.

Rescue cats Clarrie & Charlie, from 8 Lives Cat Rescue, Sheffield, need a home A big meow and hello from me and my sister! My name is Charlie, and my sister's called Clarrie; we have had quite the adventure so far! We were brought in with our mum when we were just five weeks old alongside our other siblings, and while they have been adopted into new homes, we just can't bear to be separated so want a lovely human willing to adopt us together. As you can see, we are still very young (only five months old), but are steadily growing into beautiful black and white cats. I am definitely more outgoing than Clarrie, but we are both very affectionate and love cuddles, so our experience early in life hasn't had an effect on us. As you would expect from kittens, we enjoy playing and exploring, so would be great for anyone seeking a bit of fun in their lives! In terms of what we are looking for (because that's just as important!), we want a nice home where we can stay indoors to get used to our new surroundings before having access to a safe outdoor area during the daytime. We don't mind sensible children and even similarly sensible dogs, but no other cats preferably. We've been vaccinated and microchipped and will both have been neutered by the time we are adopted. I have a minor tummy bug that I am recovering from, but after that we'll be raring to go to our new forever homes. Could you be the purrfect person for us?

Rescue cats Mickey & Oliver from Wonky Pets Rescue, Northampton, need a homeHello, I'm Mickey, the gorgeous seven year old tabby and white boy on the right, and this is my equally lovely brother Oliver.  We're both fabulous chaps who've been well cared for, but we have quite different temperaments; I'm a charming, confident fellow whereas Oliver is shy with strangers and will need more time to settle in and gain confidence.  Given a calm, understanding home without young children he'll be able to relax and show his truly sweet nature.  We'll both make wonderful furry companions and can be homed together, or separately into homes with another friendly feline.  We could share a home with a placid, cat-friendly dog, and would both enjoy safe outdoor access once we've settled in.  We're both neutered, microchipped, flea and worm treated and vaccinated, and will be rehomed with five weeks free pet insurance.  Please come and meet us soon!
OLIVER & MICKEY are at Wonky Pets Rescue, Northampton. Rehoming in Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands & Derbyshire.

Rescue cats Spitfire, TigerMoth & PiperCub from Woodland Nook Cat Rescue - Alfreton, needs homeHello, I'm Spitfire and I want to tell you a story. Once upon a time three very frightened kittens arrived in rescue. Some months passed with lots of TLC from the rescue people, and we are still nervous but we have grown in confidence, especially with people that we know well. We are seeking a patient home with adults or older kids who will let us settle at our own pace. We are very close (the rescue people think its charming!) and would like a home together with outdoor access. We have been told we are stunning in colour and markings. I'm the ginger one by the way! We are about 18 months old and have been neutered.

Rescue cat Oscar, from Rolleston Rehoming Centre, Burton-Upon-Trent, needs a homeHi there, my name is Oscar. I am a neutered tabby male and as you can see, I am incredibly handsome. At 12 years old, you'd think I'd be slowing down, but I still love to explore and have adventures in the great outdoors - my perfect home would be one with plenty of space outside to roam; a rural setting would be just the ticket. I can be nervous and shy at first, and will need some time to come out of my shell; but when I do, you'll know about it! I love to chat and will happily talk to all and sundry when I'm pottering about in the garden. You'll know when I've properly settled in as I have a special way of asking for fuss or food; I've learned that a little nudge with my paw gets me a long way! I think I'd flourish in a quiet home free of other pets and young children; though perhaps a gentle older child would be alright with me. If you think I'd be a good match for you, then please get in touch! I can't wait to meet you.
OSCAR is at Blue Cross - Rolleston Rehoming Centre, Burton-Upon-Trent . Rehoming in Derbyshire, Staffordshire & West Midlands.

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.
