Rescue Cats Dolly and Polly from Babs Cats, Swanley, need a homeHi there, I’m Dolly, I’m a 12 year old black and white female and this is my 10 year old tabby daughter Polly. As you can probably tell, this picture was taken when we were a fair bit younger! Unfortunately we’re looking for a new home as our owner is very ill and no longer able to care for us. We have been well loved and cared for and have always lived together so we would like to be rehomed together as it is all we’ve ever known. We’ve both been neutered and we’re friendly when you get to know us. If you think you might be able to offer the pair of us a home then please do get in touch.
DOLLY & POLLY are at Babs Cats, Swanley. Rehoming to North West Kent and South East London.

Rescue Cat Zsa Zsa from Feline Friends London, Hackney, needs a homeHello lovely people, my name is Zsa Zsa. I was a stray cat but then someone started feeding me and I was then rehomed but unfortunately my owner could no longer keep me so here I am looking for my new forever home. I’m a 9 year old diabetic, neutered female with a lovely black coat. Now please don’t overlook me because of the colour of my fur, if you just take the time to get to know me then you’ll never look back! I’m a lovely friendly girl and meticulously clean. I’ll gaze at you with my saucer like eyes before winding myself around your legs purring. The rescue will tell you that I’m such a calm cat, I’d probably live happily with other pets or children and I’m very relaxed about the insulin injections that I need every 12 hours for my diabetes, in fact I don’t even react to them! I’m hoping that my diabetes will resolve itself, I’m told this is sometimes the case so I could make a full recovery. Because of my regular injections I would probably be most suited to an indoor lifestyle so that you always know where I am at the time it’s required. If you think my beautiful personality could find a space in your heart and your home then please do get in touch.

Rescue cat Pepe, from Feline Friends London, Hackney, needs a homeHiya, my name is Pepe. I am a cuddly black and white neutered chap of five years old. I can be a bit reserved at first, but in a quiet, calm home without other pets I think I can relax and let my guard down. I have previously lived with a small human so I might be able to do so again, as long as they play nicely with me! I'm certainly looking forward to lots of fuss and hugs once I get to know you; I love nothing more than curling up and purring away on a nice comfy lap! I also love my food and quite happily hoover up my daily heart medication (aren't I a good boy!). Sadly I will need regular vet visits to keep tabs on my heart, but only once a year (phew!). When I'm not at the vet or eating, I love the outside and birdwatching like any other cat. Being a bigger lad, I will need a safe outdoor space to strut my stuff in, and occasional sunbathing of course. When I'm inside, sometimes I let my inner kitten get the best of me - no scrunched up bits of paper are safe from this cat! If you'd like to get to know me, please get in touch - it might be the start of something beautiful.

Rescue cat Berry from Croydon Animal Samaritans, West Kent, East and West London, Surrey, needs a home Hello there, my name is Berry and as you can see I am a handsome tabby lad. I am around 3 years old and have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am an affectionate guy but I will let you know when I have had enough and want to be left alone, I am told this is 'cattitude' and I have plenty of it. I am looking for a home with an experience cat serving human, who will understand when I need space and time and will be patient and allow my loving side to flourish. I would rather be in an adult only home and would prefer not to share you with any other pets. If you think you could be my purr-fect match then get in touch, I have already been waiting ages.
BERRY is at Croydon Animal Samaritans. Rehoming in Kent (West), London (West), London (East) & Surrey.

Well hello there! I’m Noel, or Noel McFluffy as they all call me. I am 5 years old, and I was brought into care after living rough for some time on one of the local estates. Thankfully, at last, I am now safe and warm in foster care, just waiting for someone to take me home. The type of home I need is one with access to outdoors, because that’s what I’ve been used to. And I would like to be an only pet in my new home, so that all the attention is for me, that would be great. I am a little bit hissy and grumpy at the moment (and who wouldn't be after forced neutering), but deep inside I really am a lovely boy.  Have you seen my photo, and do you like my whiskers? I have got mega whiskers I have, and all this fluffy fur, which can be all yours if you like. Don't miss a chance, and do get in touch with us so we can meet up, and you find out lots more about me.
NOEL MCFLUFFY is at Stokey Cats... and dogs, Hackney. Rehoming in East and West London. To make an enquiry please call: 07408 873811 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Rescue Cat Frankie from Stokey Cats and Dogs, Hackney, London needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hi there, my name’s Frankie and as you can see I am a handsome lad. I am around 3 years old and neutered. I am a big lover of feather toys and chilling on the bed, oh and food… especially chicken, mmmm. I am a little bit shy, but if you give me a chance to settle in and get to know you I have so much love to give. I was found as a stray, fighting for food and territory with lots of other cats that weren’t wanted, just like me. I was so frightened when I was picked up that I froze with my heart beating ten to the dozen, but my fosterer has won me round with lots of love and plenty of patience too (well, that and the chicken!) I have already been in foster for a year and I would love to not have to wait much longer for a home of my very own. I would ideally like an adult home, or maybe with older children who will understand that I will need time; a garden would be fab and I could live with cats but no dogs for me thank you. If you have a little room in your heart for me get in touch as soon as you can.
