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 Coffee from Strawberry Persian Cat Rescue, Durham,Hi there, my name is Coffee and I am an 8 year old, handsome, Lilac British shorthair boy.  Sadly, I find myself in need of a new home; I am loving and friendly and thoroughly enjoy a cuddle.  I am neutered and have had a full dental and my vaccinations are up to date; I have also had tests for FIV and FeLV and they were both negative.  I could happily share my new home with another cat, I would rather not live with a dog or any children younger than 8.  I would love to find a home with a safe garden so that I can have roam. If you think I could be the cat for you, get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue Cat Basil from Saltburn Animal Rescue Association, Redcar needs a homeHello, I’m Basil a tortie and white chap who’s decided to put his days of being a stray behind him and try to find a home of my own! I’m 7.5 years old and I’ve been a stray for a long time although, I was lucky that the local residents would look out for me. Since being taken into care though, I’ve discovered the joys of home comforts, I’ve discovered I like human company and it’s sheer bliss sleeping on one of the many plush beds I seem to have acquired! I’ve been neutered and would want a garden to explore and snooze in. I’m not sure about living with children and might be best as the only pet but do check with the rescue about that. If you think you can help me with my search for my new home, please do get in touch!

Rescue cat Benjamin from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, need a homeHi there, my name is Benjamin; I am around 4 years old and have been neutered. I was found living rough, I was starving, covered in wounds and I had lost a lot of my fur due to flea allergy dermatitis; don’t worry though, regular flea treatment with a prescription flea prevention and I am fine; my fur has grown back now and I am back to looking handsome. I have been in foster care for a few months now and I am becoming more confident; I am still shy and nervous around new people and will need time to settle in to my new home but I have found that I quite enjoy sitting with my fosterer and getting lovely strokes. I am hoping to find a quieter home with no other cats and no young children, in fact if I could be your only pet that would be great. I would like to be able to explore outside, once I am completely settled in. If you think you could be the human for me then please do get in touch and we can arrange to meet; hopefully you will have room in your home and heart for me.
BENJAMIN is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. To make an enquiry, please call: 07719 605383, and please mention you saw Benjamin on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue Cat Susie from RSPCA - Durham & District, Durham needs a homeHi there, my name’s Susie and I’m a little tabby girl of 18 months old. I’m very sweet and I also love to play. I’m hoping to find my forever home, I’ve been enjoying living at my foster home and think it’s time for a home of my own now. I’ve been neutered, fully vaccinated and even microchipped. I haven’t been around children so not sure how I’d be with them but please do ask. I haven’t had experience of dogs either but I’m very friendly with other cats so I could live with another cat or cats. If you think I’m the cat for you then please get in touch.

Rescue Cat Terry from Saltburn Animal Rescue Association, Redcar, needs a homeHello! I’m Terry, I’m a handsome, male, black cat who’s got lots of love to give and I’m looking for someone to share it with! I was found as a stray but I’m very affectionate and if I think you’re ignoring me, I can be quite vocal in getting your attention! I’m about 8 years old and am looking for an indoor home with an experienced cat owner and one where I’d be your only pet (and I can get all your attention!) I’m not sure about living with children but have a word with the lovely people here and they’ll be able to help you. I’ve been neutered and am in good health although I have tested positive for FIV although I should be able to live a happy and full life and I also come with a pension plan when I find my new home.

Rescue Cat Binksy from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, needs a homeHi 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.

Rescue cat Pixie from Consett Cats, County Durham, needs a homeHello everybody, my name is Pixie. I am an 18 month old, neutered, tortie and white girl and I have found myself searching for my forever home. You can often find me playing with the kittens at the rescue; I had to grow up too soon as I was a mum at a young age, so everyone here thinks I am making up for lost time. I am friendly and will let you stroke me, but sometimes I can be wary; so you will need to understand that I may well take time for me to settle in anywhere. I would happily live with other cats; I haven’t had much to do with dogs or children, so I am not sure whether I could live with them. If you think you could give me the chance to be your furry friend, please get in touch as soon as you can.
PIXIE is at Consett Cat Rescue. Rehoming in Co. Durham. To make an enquiry please call: 07553 344 465 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Pixie on Cat Chat, thank you!
