 Rescue cat Lionel from RSPCA - Southend-on-Sea, Essex needs homeHello there.. you seem nice, so maybe I will pop my head out to say hello. I'm Lionel and I'm about 18 months old. I ended up in rescue as my human had too many cats and couldn't look after us properly. It was noisy and chaotic and now I just want to settle down. I'm a gentle and quiet boy and rather shy. I really need a special human to help me come out of my shell and live a normal life as a companion. I would prefer to be your only cat in a home without young children. I've been neutered and will be fully vaccinated and microchipped before I leave. Please say you'll have a think about making a shy boy like me a contented one.

Rescue cat Boo, from Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a homeHi there, I am beautiful Boo - it's lovely to meet you! I am a stunning girl aged about nine years old, looking for a home with a garden that gives me the freedom to explore, but at the same time plenty of cuddles and fuss when I want them! I have interesting markings on my face and front, which really make me stand-out, with people often commenting on my bright white bib and facial features in particular. Some of my favourite pastimes include helping humans with gardening, as I love to rummage around and explore every corner of a garden, as well as being stroked and fussed over. I never stray too far and always come back for some attention if I get bored or frightened. I've been neutered and just can't wait to find a new home, so please get in touch if you think I could be the perfect puss for you.

Rescue cat Jeffrey from Blue Cross, Cambridge, needs a homeHello, my name is Jeffrey. I'm a very handsome black cat. I'm male, about 3 years old and am neutered. I'm a super friendly chap, and I love humans! I like sitting on a lap, having a fuss, and playing. In fact, playing may well be my favourite! I do like to potter about outside a bit so I would like access to a garden in my new home please. I'd prefer to be the only pet so that I don't have to share my human lap with any other pets. I could possibly live with older children. I'm a friendly, loving cat with a great personality so I hope to be sitting on your lap soon!!

Rescue Cat Fred from Crescent Cat Rescue, Tendring needs a homeHello, my name’s Fred, I’m a 4 year old, handsome, black chap just looking for a home to call my own. I was found with my friend Wilma who recently went off to her forever home and I’m hoping it’ll be my turn really soon! I’m a little bit shy just until I get to know you though. Once I have got to know you, I love getting attention and cuddles and I hope you’ve got a super comfy lap because I’ll be trying it out when I come home to live with you! I’m looking for a quiet home where someone is around most of the time. I’m not sure about children but do check with the people here at the rescue to see what they think. I get along with other friendly cats but I’m not sure about dogs. I’d love a garden to explore and sunbathe in! I’ve been neutered so I’m all set to go to my new home - I just need you to spot me now!

Rescue cat Tilly, from Cats Protection, Harlow, needs a homeHello human! My name is Tilly and I think you'll agree I'm a rather beautiful tortie girl - just look at my fluffy white bib and gorgeous fur! I am not even a year old yet, so I'm still very much a playful kitten, who loves interacting with people and playing with toys. I also enjoy exploring and spending time to myself (mainly lounging around!). You might wonder how such a fabulous feline canpossibly be overlooked? Well I have a slight eye defect that I was born with, which means I am partially sighted, but it doesn't stop my love of life. I am perfectly capable (and rather adept) at chasing my toys, but would need a completely secure garden to call my own. As such a young girl I am just looking for a lovely home for years to come, with an owner who can help to mould me into a truly perfect puss. I've been neutered and would be happy living with children, but no other cats please! If you think you've got the right house and could cope with being upstaged by this beautiful feline, please do get in touch!
TILLY is at Cats Protection - Harlow, Epping Forest & District.

Rescue cat Benny from Poppy's Place, Colchester, Essex, needs a homeHello, my name is Benny. I am a handsome black and white chap, I’ve been neutered and I am 11 years young. I am hoping to find a loving home after a change in circumstances in my previous home meant I couldn’t stay. I am looking for an adult home, where I can do my own thing and where you will make yourself available for fusses when I decide; you see, I like to come to you when I want attention, some might say aloof, I say characterful. The lovely people here say I have a super character and that my little quirks make me irresistible. I would love to have a safe garden to explore when I am all settled in and I could live with other cats or even a dog if you have them. I have my paws crossed that someone, with a sunny spot that needs filling with a charmer like myself, will come along soon; maybe it could be you?

Rescue cat Arthur from Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch, needs a homeHello, my name is Arthur. I'm a very handsome ginger and white male neutered cat. I'm about one year old and find myself looking for a loving new home, perhaps you have one available for me? I'm an affectionate boy, especially when it comes to food! Have you heard of cat treats called dreamies, well, these are my favourite! They sell them in lots of places, no reason not to have them in the house really! I can be quite talkative and give lots of nice head bumps for my dreamies! I'd prefer to be the only cat in the house please, this way you can be all mine! I'd prefer to live with adult humans although children over 10 might be okay. Please get in touch for more information, oh and don't forget about the dreamies!

Rescue cat Libby, at Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch, needs a new home in EssexHello, my name is Libby.  I'm a petite, sweet natured lady of about 11 years old, with a short-haired grey and white tabby coat.  After fending for myself as a stray for quite a while I was taken in by a kind human, but unfortunately the resident cat didn't take kindly to my presence and bullied me, so I'm now looking for a home of my own.  I'm a fuss-loving girl, although not so keen on being picked up, and I'll thrive in a peaceful cosy home where I'll be allowed to settle in at my own pace and enjoy being stroked.  An indoor-only home, or a home with an enclosed garden to keep me safe, will be perfect for me.  I have been spayed and I'll go to my new home up to date with flea & worming treatments, micro chipped and vaccinated.  Could you offer me a loving foster placement, just so I have a place to call my own?

Rescue cats Lizzie & Becky from National Animal Welfare Trust Clacton, Essex , Suffolk, need a homeHello, we are Lizzie (on the left), and Becky. We are neutered sisters and we are 2 years old. We were rehomed as kittens but unfortunately we find ourselves looking for a home again; now we know that taking on two cats is a big ask, so if it is absolutely necessary we could be rehomed separately. We are all different, Lizzie is the shyest of us and I am more confident. We could happily live with teenagers and we could maybe share with another cat but neither of us wants to live with a dog. We are hoping to find a home or homes where someone can work to build our confidence and give us time to settle in to our new surroundings. If you think you could be the one to help a sister out, then purr-lease get in touch.
LIZZIE & BECKY are at National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton. Rehoming in Essex & Suffolk.

Rescue cat Jane, from National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, Essex, needs a homeHello all, my name is Jane; I am around 18 months old and have been neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. As you can see I am a sleek black cat; I am happy to be stroked and cuddled and yet no-one has been able to offer me a home. I understand that sometimes it takes a black cat much longer to find a home; I just hope that is not true for me. I am hoping to find an adult only home, with a garden for some gentle exploring, once I am settled in. If you have no other pets and are looking for a furry friend to keep you company, then purr-lease look no further and arrange to come and meet me.

Rescue cat Christy from Springfield Animal Rescue, Chelmsford, needs a homeHello, my name is Christy; I am a handsome, black, 10 year old, neutered chap. I came into the rescue in a very sorry state; I was thin and had angry inflamed skin from a flea allergy; even in that state I was still hoping for human contact and rolling over to show my rescuer the fleas that were bothering me so much. Thanks to regular flea treatments, good food and water I have become a sleek black panther. I am a very laid back chap, even when the vet microchipped me. I love human company and am very quick to come if I am called for and the offer of a treat or fuss is there. I am hoping to find a home where I can be your only pet reallyas I get a bit worried by some other cats; I will happily live with children and would like a garden to relax in. If you think you could offer me lots of love and monthly flea treatments I would be really keen to meet you and see if we could be best friends.

Mucker, 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.
