Rescue cat Ivy, at Blue Cross - Suffolk Rehoming Centre, Ipswich, needs a new homeHello, my name is Ivy. I’m a beautiful, black-haired, five year old spayed lady, and I’m looking for a quiet loving home. I’m very timid around people and I’d love to find a special, understanding and patient human friend who will be able to help me gradually gain confidence and feel secure and contented in a permanent home of my own. A calm and peaceful environment without other pets or young children will suit me best, and eventually I’d enjoy having access to a safe garden too. During my time in rescue I’ve shown that when I feel safe in a nice comfy spot I enjoy gentle fusses and start to become more curious about my surroundings, so in the right home I’ll be able to continue this progress and build my courage further. If you could offer me the caring forever home I’m searching for, then please get in touch.

Rescue cats Panda& Suki from RSPCA Stort Valley, Harloe, Essex, Hertfordshire, need a homeHi there, we are Panda & Suki; we are brother and sister, 6 months old, neutered and desperate to find a forever home.

We could live with other cats and even dogs but would prefer no young children. If you are looking for two furbabes who will lap up your patience and love then get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cats Molly & Mae, from RSPCA Stort Valley, Harlow, Essex, need a homeHiya, nice to meet you! We are Molly and Mae, a pair of pretty neutered girlies looking for a new home together! We're only four months old and very shy, so this is a fantastic chance for someone to make a lasting positive impact on our lives. A little patience, love and affection will go a long way to helping us become happy, friendly kitties in the future! When you first meet us we'll be a bit nervous of you, but in a quiet home it won't be long before we grow in confidence. Like most kitties our age, we love to play and will love to be spoilt with lots of toys and games! Once we're old enough, we like the sound of playing outside - so a safe garden with a little cat door for us would be perfect. In the future we might be happy to live with other pets or children, but it might be nice if we had you all to ourselves at first, while we get our bearings! If you think you've got a space in your heart and home, please get in touch - we can't wait to meet you!

Rescue cat Lefty, from Springfield Animal Rescue, Chelmsford, needs a homeHi humans! My name is Lefty, and I'm a very special 10-month old tabby boy. With the whitest of white bibs and snow white socks, I'm such a handsome chap that you wouldn't spot on first glance that I've got a funny little quirk - a slight head tilt I've had since birth. It doesn't bother me at all though, and I don't need any special treatment for it as far as I know - I love to play and chase my toys as much as the next kitten! I can be a little on guard at first with humans I don't know, but once we're acquainted I'm quite happy to be fussed and snuggle up with you after I've finished running around like a mad thing! I am neutered and ready to meet my new owners, so if you think I'd get along well in your home then please do come and see me - you won't regret it!

Rescue cat Miri from Springfield Animal Rescue, Chelmsford, needs a homeHello, my name is Miri. I'm a pretty 2/3 year old neutered female ginger tabby cat. I'm an affectionate cat who loves cuddles and human company. You can see me in the photo having a little nap and enjoying some fuss. I am looking for a loving home with humans to call my own. I would prefer to be the only pet in the home as I don't think I'd like to share my humans (and toys) with another cat! I'm very playful and enjoy my toys. I am able to live with sensible older children. I have a deformity to my head, which doesn't seem to cause me any issues and the vet suspects it is a birth defect, but they can't rule out trauma. I would like access to a safe and secure garden in my new home please. If you are looking for a friendly, affectionate, playful and loving cat then look no further. I'll be looking forward to meeting you, and getting some cuddles!

Rescue Cat Crystal from Orphan Annie's Cat Rescue, Basildon, needs a homeHi folks, I’m Crystal. I’m a gorgeous three year old tortie and white female on the lookout for my forever home. I like to hang around and enjoy company and will approach my human companions on my own terms. I’m not overly cuddly or keen on strokes but I do love Dreamies and I’m getting friendlier by the day! My ideal home would be with experienced cat owners and no young children, I would like access to a safe garden please, away from main roads. I don’t know if I’d like to live with dogs but I would definitely be happy to have some kitty companions! Of course, I have been neutered, chipped, worm and flea treated and will be vaccinated before I move in. If you have a good supply of Dreamies and think you could offer the home I'm looking for then get in touch and I'll pack my bags!

Rescue cat Magic from Orphan Annie’s Cat Rescue, Basildon, needs a homeHello, my name is Magic. I'm a very handsome 3 year old black cat looking for some nice humans to live with. It's been said that I'm getting to be quite the cuddly, soppy, playful and loving boy! This is me in the photo having some cuddles. I am easily startled as I'm partially deaf in one ear, which has left me with a slight head tilt so I'd probably suit a home with experienced cat owners, with older children and I'm happy to be around other cats. Accces to a safe garden away from main roads would be fantastic! I am chipped, neutered, vaccinated, flead and wormed before I leave the rescue. If you think you'd like to share your home with a big loving tom cat then please get in touch!

Rescue cat Nellie, from Crescent Cat Rescue, Tendring, Essex, needs a new homeHello, my name is Nellie. I’m a very beautiful youngster of just twelve months old, with a calico tortoiseshell and white coat. A tough start in life has left me feeling rather unsettled and anxious, and I’m looking for a calm, quiet forever home without children or other pets. A fresh start in a peaceful environment, where I’ll be given patience and understanding, is all I need to help me gain confidence and grow into a relaxed and contented furry companion. I have been spayed, and once I’ve fully settled into my new home I’d enjoy access to a safe garden. Could you offer me the happy future I deserve?

Rescue cat Charlie, at Crescent Cat Rescue, Tendring, needs a new homeHello, my name is Charlie. I’m a two year old neutered chap with a gorgeous grey and white coat.  I came into rescue as a stray, and I’m longing to find myself a wonderful permanent home. I don’t enjoy the company of other cats, so life here in rescue is difficult for me - despite the regular meals and gentle fusses! A home as the only pet will be perfect for me; and as I can be a little temperamental at times I’d also prefer an adult-only household where I can be as affectionate or independent as the mood takes me! Once I’ve settled in I’d love access to a safe garden too. If you think that you could offer me the loving forever home I really deserve, then please get in touch.

Rescue cat Lulu, at Cats Protection - Tendring & District, needs a new homeHello, my name is Lulu.  I’m a very beautiful tortoiseshell lady of seven years old, and I’m looking for a patient and loving human friend to offer me a place in their wonderful home.  I’m rather demure upon first acquaintance, but once I’ve come out of my shell I’m bursting full of character; I love affection and cuddles, but on my own terms!  Treats of chicken or tuna are always welcome, however.  I’d like a home as the only pet, and without young children.  I’d also love free access to a garden.  I have been spayed.  If you can offer me a calm and experienced permanent home then you may be lucky enough to find yourself with a Lulu in your life!  Please get in touch.
LULU is at Cats Protection - Tendring & District. Rehoming within C07 & CO11 - CO16: from the River Stour (north), to the coast and the River Colne (south), with the coast to the East and Colchester to the west.

Rescue cat Pixie, from Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch, Essex, needs a homeMew! My name is Pixie, and I'm a special cat looking for a very special owner. I am a beautiful white girl with tabby patches who simply loves to be fussed and given affection. You can even pick me up and I will gladly purr away in appreciation! Unfortunately, having been badly affected by a tail injury, I suffer from incontinence so need a home where I am able to be outside most of the time - perhaps as a farm cat or in a home with an outbuilding so I have somewhere to go to keep warm, but that is well suited to my condition. I love people, so definitely don't want to be left alone to fend for myself - I would appreciate a caring owner who is understanding of who I am but still ready and waiting to give me the attention I deserve! If you think you could be that person, I would be forever grateful and return the favour with years of devoted love and cuddles. I have been neutered and am ready and waiting for the right owner to change my life.

Rescue cat Roxy from Caring For Animals 2001, Thurrock, Essex, needs a homeI've been waiting over 2 years... Please pick me! Hi 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.
