Rescue Cats Penguin & Patch, Helping Pets - North East, Newcastle needs a homeHello there! We’re a pair of brothers, both black and white and 10 months old and we’re hoping for someone with a big heart and lots of love who’ll give us a loving home of our own. We were left to fend for ourselves from an early age and didn’t have the chance to find out how lovely humans and cuddles could be. We were both really shy and frightened when we were found but the humans here have been gentle and taken their time with us and we are starting to build a bit of trust. Penguin will sit in a lap for a stroke and although I will tolerate being stroked, if I get a scare, I’ll run away. We both love our food and can be persuaded close with treats. We love playing with each other and with bits of paper and small toys. With our nervous nature, we think we’d be best in a mostly adult home and although we’re fine with other cats, we’ve not been introduced to dogs so not sure about them. We’d love a garden and have been neutered, treated for worms and fleas and microchipped. We’re a really sweet, lovely pair of boys - do you think you could offer us a loving forever home?

Rescue cat Sally from Helping Pets, North East, needs a home Hello, I'm a gorgeous black and white female cat looking for my forever home.....could it be with you?? I'm about 8 years old and am neutered. I'm a sweet natured girl and enjoy receiving affection and cwtching up on my humans lap. I also like to be independent and enjoy my own company, as well as my humans; I am a cat after all! When I came to the rescue I had a skin condition but this seems to be improving now as my coat is lovely and glossy. My new human/s will need to carry on with my medical treatment for my skin condition. However, the rescue will continue to pay for this if one of their partner vets is used. I could live in a home with older children, who will respect my cat-ness! I might be able to live with a dog but would prefer to be the only cat. Please get in touch for more information about me. I'm a sweet natured, affectionate girl and I can't wait to have my own humans again!

Rescue cat Nancy from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, needs a homeHi there everyone, my name is Nancy and I am a gorgeous, calico tortie lassie, who is 8 months old. I am hoping to find a new hooman to look after me; I have had hoomans previously but they had little hoomans who terrified me, so my new home should not have any children. I am a typical cheeky young cat, I can sometimes have a mad half hour and be a tinker; I will definitely fill your home with fun and love if you think you could find a little room in your heart for me. I will most definitely be neutered before going to my forever home, you will be all the family I need.

Rescue cat Jake, from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, needs a homeHi there! My name's Jake. I'm an extremely handsome black-and-white boy, not to mention an all-round top bloke. Four years old and I'm not modest at all, I know how brilliant I am. Having said that I don't mind sharing the love around - you'll not meet a nicer cat than me! I love attention and having a good old natter, especially when it's time for my dinner. Just thinking about dinner is making me hungry! When I'm hungry you'll definitely know about it because I'll tell you. Meow meow meow, that's what I'll say. I know when to shut up though and the best way to achieve this is by giving me food, or rubbing my chin! Once we've got to know each other would it be possible please to allow me access to your comfortable bed? I promise I don't snore and will diligently chase away any intruders and protect your life at all costs (cannot 100% guarantee I will do this if I'm sleeping or sitting very comfortably). I also need one of those magical cat portals to allow me to warp outside and sleep in patches of sun, one of my favourite pastimes! Please no alarming dog-shaped companions though, I don't like those, and I'd prefer older kids to live with as I find young children scary and unpredicatable. I am neutered, chipped and all the rest, so if you think I am the right cat for you, please get in touch - you won't regret it, I swear.

Rescue Cat Chaplin from Cats Protection Wear Valley and Darlington, Durham, needs a homeHello, my name is Chaplin and I am a handsome black and white chap.  I am around 5 years old and neutered.  At the moment I can be a bit of a grump and take a swipe at you; the fantastic people here are hoping that being in a home of my own, where I can just be me and with no other pets or young children, will help me calm down and not do it. I am not going to be a cat who wants fusses for a long time, if ever and my new human will need to understand that about me. I have had a hard life, which has left me as FIV+, too many fights over girls, food and territory I’m afraid; so surely I deserve these home comforts people keep talking about.  I have my paws crossed that you will think I am just the puss for you. To find out about FIV: Visit Cat Chat’s FIV information page, or the FIV Owner's Club on our friendly forum.

Rescue Cat Binksy from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hi there, my name’s Binksy and I’m a lovely little, black and white girl, 10 years old and I’m hoping to find someone who can help me out. I’ve unfortunately found myself in care as the circumstances changed with my last owner and I found myself as part of a multi cat household. I was really struggling living there, I like to be the only cat (I’m not sure about dogs either!) I have to say, I’m feeling a wee bit out of sorts as my world’s been turned upside down with all the changes! I’m a friendly girl though and I do like to pop out of my wee house to greet anyone who comes to visit and even better if they give me a head rub - I really enjoy those. I’ve been neutered and am crossing my paws here that someone falls in love with me and picks me for their very own!
BINKSY is at Pawz for Thought, Sunderland. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.
