Jasmin

Rescue cat Jasmin from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, needs a homeHiya, my name is Jasmin. I am a neutered, black and white, long-haired lassie. When I first arrived at Pawz, I was feral and could be aggressive because I was so terrified of everything and just wanted to be left alone; thankfully, they didn't and instead worked with me in my foster home. It has taken plenty of time and patience but I am improving ; I still don't like strokes but I no longer hiss at my fosterer. My dream home would have an understanding person, who will accept me for what I am now; work with me, love and care for me but don't need me to be a cuddly cat. I mean , it is possible that I might surprise everyone, but it is equally as likely that I will never become a lap cat. If you could offer me a chance at this happy ever after malarkey then please get in touch and maybe we can become good pals.

Henry

Rescue cat Henry from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, needs a homeGood day to you; my name is Henry. I am a handsome, neutered, ginger and white longhaired lad. I am after a rural home, so that I can have a little wander as I please. I was a stray for a long time, I had some kind people feeding me, they tried to convert me to an indoor cat but I wasn't happy; so a home where I can come and go as I please. My new home would be perfect if I could be the only cat, I just don't get on with other furry felines, and a home with no young children would be best. I am friendly with people and will make a good pal for someone. I have waited for a while now, so I have my paws crossed that my home isn't too far away.

Mr Gently

Rescue Cat Mr Gentle from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, needs a homeHello, I'm Mr Gently. I'm a neutered tabby boy who was living on the streets for over 8 years. I had a home of my own once, it must have been a very quiet one. I’m very shy and spooked by any noises and movement. I found some nice humans in the neighbourhood who fed me and made a shelter. One of them gained my trust and called Willows for help. My Willows fosterer made me a hidey-camp and she waited, and waited…and waited. Each day she talked to me gently, left food, refreshed my water and cleaned my litter box. I have come to trust her and I love chin and tummy tickles. I will unfurl and purr and let her do it non-stop...till her arm and fingers ache. I finally trust her enough to sit beside her on the sofa close enough she can stroke me. I give head bumps for more attention and she says I melt her heart. I am a gentle soul - I would never lash out; instead I run away and hide if I’m scared. I'm looking for a quiet home with a loving, patient owner, without children or pets, who has plenty of spare time. Deep down I’m lonely and want company, it’s just I find it so very hard to trust. I want someone who won't mind that I will hide at the slightest noise, and that I might take weeks before I even show myself enough for you to touch me. It'll be best to let me settle in one room first, gain your trust before letting me into the next room and so on. But for now I am good, I’m just preparing you for future. It may be a lot of effort, but the reward will be 1000-fold when you realise you’ve given me a new life and I unfurl for the first time for you. When I quietly purr for the first time, when I lick your hand for the first time. And each little baby step I take towards trusting you.

Oreo

Rescue cat Oreo from Helping Pets - North East, Newcastle, Tyne & Wear, Durham, Northumberland, needs a homeHi, my name is Oreo, I think it might be because I have a black and white coat, or maybe someone thought I was sweet. I am 7 years old and have to find myself a new home. I am looking for a home where I can have a lazy evening on the sofa watching tv with you; as you can see from the picture I do love a good snuggle and snooze. I have been described as being a little grumpy sometimes; I will hiss and maybe swipe if I am scared or overwhelmed (we all have our off moments), so I think I would be best suited to an adult home, nice and calm and where I can be the only pet - queen of the castle possibly!? If you are patient and loving, can see past my little foibles and could offer me a home, please let my people know and they will see if we could be a match.

Deborah

Rescue Cat Deborah,  Consett Cat Rescue, Consett needs a homeHello, my name's Deborah. I'm a pretty little female cat with a sleek black coat and the greenest of eyes. I've not had the best start to life, I was born into a feral life and am really timid. I'm only a year old though and given time and patience, I will make someone a wonderful friend. I am already able to be stroked by the staff here if they're patient with me. I can sometimes lash out because I'm scared, so a home with no children or older children would be best. I don't like dogs but I might be okay with a gentle male cat in the family. I'm looking for someone who's experienced with cats and who can help me learn to trust humans and learn how to love and be loved. I'm looking for an indoor home for now but given time, that might change. I've been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. People think I'm grumpy but I'm just misunderstood! Could you be my special person who can see beyond the front I put on and can see the loving cat I could be?

Bella

Rescue Cat Bella, Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields needs a homeHello, I'm Bella, a 10 year old, blue grey, shorthaired lady. I'm looking for a really quiet home with one, maybe two, kind, calm and patient humans. I'd like not to be around any children and also to be your only pet. I will take time to trust my new human and build a bond but once I've settled in I have my times where I'm chatty and follow you around telling you to feed me, let me into the bedroom to sleep or let me into the garden! I'll often be in the room you're not to have peace for a snooze. I like strokes but will let you know when I've had enough with a bat or maybe a hiss, just saying! If I'm feeling really generous with my affections, I will climb onto a comfy knee! I'm mostly an indoor kitty but if it's nice weather, I will have a wander into the garden, I do like to feel the sun on me. I've been neutered and  in good health. If you'd like the pleasure of my company, do get in touch?
BELLA is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Tyne & Wear including Sunderland, Co.Durham and Northumberland. To make an enquiry please call: 07719 605383 or 07989 540342, and please mention you saw Bella on Cat Chat, thank you!

Amber & Jade

Rescue cats Amber & Jade from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, need a homeGood day, we are Amber & Jade a pair of young ladies looking for a home. We are beautiful girls but we are far from tame; we can be stroked, but it is clear that we don't enjoy being touched. The hope is that we can find a loving home, with an experienced human, who is willing to work with us and take the time to gain our trust. We are going to need lots of time and dedication to come around fully. We are neutered and looking for an adult only home. We understand that it is a big ask, but are sure that the right home is out there somewhere, with someone who will understand what a joy it is to finally see cats like us blossom; are you that person, we certainly hope so?

Dipi

Rescue cat Dipi from Consett Cat Rescue, Consett, County Durham, needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hello there, my name is Dipi. I am a gorgeous tortie lady who was born outside to a feral mum; my siblings have all been adopted after settling down as friendly cats. I, on the other hand, am still very timid and very scared; so I need a knowledgeable home where you will be patient with me and help me come out of my shell, experience of helping cats like me is preferable. I would be best suited to an a home with no children or dogs, I may be able to live with another young cat or maybe a calm male cat - any females would have to be very laid back and the rescue are determined that I go to the perfect home so that I can stay there forever. I am 14 months old, neutered and happily living as an indoor cat at the moment. If you think you have the ideal home for me and room in your heart to help me, please get in touch.

Smudge

Rescue Cat Smudge, Pawz for Thought, Sunderland needs a homeHello! My name’s Smudge and I’m a gorgeous, grey and white, neutered girl. I’m looking for a rather special home because of my special needs. I arrived in care after being in some kind of accident or trauma, I’m keeping what actually happened to myself! I was very ill when I came in but after some treatment, needing my tail amputated and rehabilitation, I’ve got full mobility and am very playful. I can run and play and chase after toys! I’m incontinent though and am hoping to find someone experienced at expressing bladders and bowels. If my home had tiled floors, or areas that were easily cleaned, that would be so helpful too. I’d like access to a safe outdoor space please. I really don’t like other cats, so would prefer to be your only cat please. Would you have the home and love that I’m looking for?
