Rescue cat Tigger from Basildon Cat Rescue, Essex, needs a homeHi there, my name is Tigger and as you can probably see I am a handsome tabby & white chap. I am around 3 years old and have been neutered. I came to Straycatz Basildon to see if they could find me a new home, preferably one with a garden for when the sun makes an appearance, because I do quite like the feeling of the sun gently warming my belly while I sunbathe. I am a very loyal companion and am hoping to find a human who needs a new best friend; if necessary I could share said human with other cats but I do draw the line at dogs and I would prefer no young children either. If you are in the market for some furry company then do get in touch, I am sure we could be best pals in no time.

Rescue cat Chip from Blue Cross Cambridge, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, needs a homeGood day to you, my name is Chip and I am a lovely tortoiseshell lady. I am around 13 years old and have been neutered. I am hoping there will be someone out there who can offer me a loving home; I am a friendly girl, who loves a treat or two once I know that everything is okay and I have no need to worry. I think I could live with older, quieter children but I would prefer to be the only pet as I prefer not to share my space with others. There isn't a lot known about me, I have been a mum and really I am just looking forward to a fresh start in a loving home, where I can relax and live a long and happy life. If you think you could make my wish come true, do call and arrange to meet me.

Rescue cat Mr Tabby, at Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch, needs a new homeHello, I’m Mr Tabby - a very handsome shorthaired gentleman of about five years old. I’d been moved around quite a lot in my time before coming into rescue, and this has left me feeling unsettled and unsure about trusting people. I’m now looking for a calm, relaxed home with an experienced and understanding owner who will take the time to help me regain my confidence. I’m really a lovely chap and gentle, patient human friendship will help me to find my feet again. An adult-only home, or one with older children, will suit me best. I’m neutered and will be up to date with flea and worming treatments, microchipped and vaccinated when I go to my forever home. Could that home be with you?

Rescue cats Pepsi and Paws from Crescent Cat Rescue, Tendring, Essex, need a homeHi there, we are Pepsi and Paws; we are two years old, neutered and absolutely fabulous. We are at the rescue and in need of a forever home, we have been here a good while already but being black and white (obviously the best type of cat ever) and a pair we haven't been chosen, Paws is slightly more reserved and so isn't at the front of the pen when people visit. We are friendly girls who could live with children and other cats, although we haven't had much to do with dogs; oh and a garden would be fab. All we need is a loving home and we will both blossom and fill your heart with joy, so what are you waiting for - get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cat Raymond from Cats Protection – Southend & District, needs a homeHello, my name is Raymond. I'm a very handsome black male cat. I'm about 11 years old and am neutered. I'm a friendly and gentle cat and will make a terrific companion. I was very sadly found malnourished and living as a stray. However, I've gained some weight at the rescue and am quite the handsome chap! I'd love to be able to find a quiet home with humans of my own; I'd like access to the outdoors so perhaps my wonderful new humans would have a garden for me to enjoy? The rescue don't know if I am able to live with other animals or with children. Please get in touch for more information about me. I'll snuggle up somewhere cosy now, but I'll be listening out for phone calls about me!

Rescue cat Ruby from National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, needs a homeHello, my name is Ruby. I'm a 2 year old ginger and white female neutered cat looking for my forever home. I'm a sweet and pretty cat, just look at my nice smile in my photo! I enjoy fuss and attention, but will let you know when I've had enough fuss. I'd like a home with an experienced cat owner and with no young children (older children would be okay). I'm vaccinated, microchipped and have had my flea/worm treatment so I'm ready for my new home now please!

Rescue Cat Smudge from Cats Protection - Harlow, Epping Forest & District, Essex needs a homeHello! My name’s Smudge and I’m a gorgeous Tortie and black lady who’s looking for a home where I’ll be loved and pampered! I’m 5 years old and I came in to the rescue with my sister Poppy. She’s gone to a wonderful new home and I’m waiting for it to be my turn now. My new family must have comfy laps as one of my favourite pass times is curling up for a snooze and I’ve found the best place to do that is in a nice comfy lap. Another hobby I have is playing and particularly with my dangly toy fish - again I will need your assistance with that so hopefully you’ll be expert with wiggling the fish so I can have lots of fun pouncing! I’m fine with children but would prefer to be the only pet as I want to be centre of attention. I’d also love to have a garden to have a play in. I’ve been neutered and I do have a treatable heart condition but don’t worry, I have daily medication and it in no way cramps my style! So, can my dangly fish and me come and live with you?
SMUDGE is at Cats Protection - Harlow, Epping Forest & District.

Rescue cat Freya from Caring For Animals 2001, Thurrock, Essex, needs a homeHi there, my name is Freya, and I am a beautiful 3 year old girl with a white and black coat. I did have a litter kittens last year but they have all found lovely homes, once I had seen they were settled, I thought it is now my turn to find a lovely quiet loving home. I am neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped and am in tip top condition. I would prefer an indoor quiet home with no children or dogs, but I could be ok with another quiet kitty, where we can share your lap at evening time. Please pop along to meet me and bring your carry basket.

Rescue cat Roxy from Caring For Animals 2001, Thurrock, Essex, needs a homeHi there, my name is Roxy and I am a neutered lass in need of a new home. I came into rescue heavily pregnant back in 2015 and raised what turned out to be my fourth litter. I then became very ill myself and was diagnosed with toxoplasmosis. While I am not infectious at the moment, toxoplasmosis can flare up so it would be better if I could find a mature home where there are no ladies who might get pregnant. The charity are prepared to pay for testing at their vets every 9 - 12 months. I am a pretty lass, very tame and I am hoping that there is someone out there who will give me the chance of a forever home. The rescue will give you more information about me if you just make that first call or email and see if you could have space in your heart and home for me.

Mary, rescue cat from Hornchurch, EssexI’ve been waiting over a year… Please pick me! Hello stranger! Let me introduce myself. My name is Mary and I'm a friendly lass with a bit of growing to do! At 18 months I've still got a lot to learn about the world, but what I do know is that I'm looking for a loving home. Now, I'm quite a reserved young lady, so a quiet home with a chance to get to know you slowly would be just the ticket, along with some access to the outside - and I may need quite a bit of time to come out of my shell. I can promise you though, once I know you better your patience would pay off; I'll be heading straight for your lap and lavishing you with purry kisses! So how about it then? Could you be the one for me? I do hope so!
Mary is at Ann & Bill’s Cat & Kitten Rescue, Hornchurch. Rehoming in Hornchurch, Romford, Dagenham, Rainham & Barking.
