Rescue cat Lindie, from Consett Cat Rescue, Consett, needs a homeHello? Are you friendly? I hope so! I'm a gorgeous girl with one of the most beautiful coats you are ever likely to see. Still only one year old, this is your chance to live with one of the prettiest cats on the block, and one that is very much still a kitten - eager to explore and easy to have a big impact on! I am still very nervous due to living outdoors as a feral kitten, but if food is being served you'll find me winding myself between your legs! Which is as sure a sign as any that I will come out of my shell once I get to know you. Because of my past I would need a nice quiet home, with no noisy small children or aggresive pets. I might be able to live with another cat if they accept me, but a home where I have you all to myself would let me come out of my shell that much quicker. I would need to be kept indoors for a long time until I am fully ready and can be trusted to come back, as given the choice I might prefer to run off and hide until I get to know you! As you can see from my portrait, I am a truly beautiful tortie girl and, being just one year old, you can have a huge impact on my personality and life if you can just be patient and loving enough to give me the time. I have been neutered, chipped and vaccinated, so hope I can get to meet you soon!

Rescue cat Trevor, from Consett Cat Rescue, County Durham, needs a homeHiya, my name is Trevor! I am about 10 months old, and looking for my forever home. I would be best suited to a quietish home, with no young children, but I may be fine with older ones, and possibly with dogs too, and I can be an only cat, or live with other cats. It would also be nice to have access to outdoors, once I am tame enough to come back to you. I am a bit of a scaredy cat at the moment you see. I really want to play, but I run off as soon as you get too close. If you are lying in bed I will tap your hand, but then run away if you move it. I am quite comical, I do want to be friends, but I’m just not quite sure how to do it yet! give me a little time to gain more confidence then we will have great fun, I’m sure. I have been chipped and neutered, and will be vaccinated soon. if you would like to find out more about me, and meet up, do get in touch with rescue please.

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 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.
CHAPLIN is at Cats Protection - Wear Valley & Darlington. Rehoming in DL Postcode Area.
