Rescue cats Marble & Spreckle from Caring for Animals 2001, Thurrock need a homeHi there, I'm Marble and this is my brother Spreckle. I'm the pretty Tortie, and Spreckle is black with dashes of white fur down his back. We're just a pair of youngsters at under 6 months old, and looking to settle down and be loved. We are both a bit timid at first, if I'm startled I can hiss sometimes but its really just nerves. Once we feel more comfortable we are affectionate cats and like to sit on a lap and be made a fuss of. We just need a little patience and we will make lovely companions. We are both neutered and vaccinated so ready to move in when you are!

Rescue cat Tia from National Animal Welfare Trust, Clacton, needs a home Hello, my name is Tia. I'm a gorgeous tabby and white female cat looking for my forever home. Sadly, I arrived at the resuce as my humans could no longer look after me. Settling into cattery life has been a big change and a little scary but I am getting more and more brave. My new humans would need to be understanding of this as I may need a little extra TLC to adjust to my new environment. I enjoy playing, espcecially with my toy mouse! I also like to watch the birds through the window and see what they're doing. I'm about 10 years old and am neutered. A home without animals and without children would be best for me please. Oh, and I would like access to the outside when I'm settled please. If you think you might be able to offer me a loving home, please get in touch.

Rescue cat Oscar T from Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire & Suffolk, needs a homeHi there everyone, my name is Oscar T and I am on the hunt for a new home. I am a handsome black lad, neutered and I am around 7 and a half years old. I can be a little shy and that coupled with my fur colour means that I haven't been at the forefront of anyone's mind when they look at me. When I am settled I am a lap cat; I love attention and am sweet and social; I just need time to show you how wonderful I am. I am looking for a patient human, or family with older children who will give me space and time and let me blossom. I thoroughly enjoy pottering about outside and exploring, so access to the outside world, once I am settled, would be purr-fect! If you think I could be just the companion for you then get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cat Billy from Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire & Suffolk, needs a homeHello, my name is Billy and I am a sweet natured, 12 year old, neutered boy, who wants a forever home. I love to spend my time admiring the world so I would like a cat flap to use once I am settled in. I could live with older children, who will understand that I like time to myself, nice calm ones would be fine but not younger ones please. I am hoping to find a human in a low cat population area as I don't really get on with other cats or dogs for that matter; I am quite sure that I should be your only pet and the very centre of your world! All I ask is that you look at my super cute face and try not to fall in love, when you fail I will be here ready to meet you.

Rescue cat Cutie from Bow Lodge Cat Rescue, Thurrock, Essex, West Kent, needs a homeOh hi there! My name is Cutie; I think it's quite fitting, don't you? As you can see, I am striking tortie girl of 15 years old, but don't let my age put you off! I'm a friendly gal and love fuss as much as any kitten. Make no mistake, I love affection and give as good as I get! When I'm not asking for fuss, I enjoy having a wander about outside, so a safe garden space would be perfect for me. Nothing better than a good sunbathe! Although I'd prefer to have my new home all to myself, I suppose I could live with another cat if they were agreeable! I am neutered, chipped and all the rest, so if you think I could be the kitty for you, please do get in touch. I would love to spend my twilight years curled up on the sofa next to you!

Rescue cat Susie from Ann & Bill’s Cat & Kitten Rescue, Hornchurch, needs a home Hello, my name is Susie. I'm a gorgeous black and white cat looking for loving humans of my own, can you help? I'm quite shy and scared at the moment so am looking for understanding and patient new owners who are willing to work with me to build my confidence back up. I really just need a little bit of time to come out of my shell and build some trust. I hope there is a kind hearted person out there that would like to share their heart and home with me. I'm a beautiful girl with really soft fur. I'm about 2 years old and am neutered. I would like access the outdoors, and I should be able to live with another cat. Please get in touch for more information about me.

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!
LEFTY is at Springfield Animal Rescue, Chelmsford. Rehoming in Essex. To make an enquiry, please call: 01245 609482 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Lefty on Cat Chat, thank you!

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 cats Pixie and Chops, from Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch, Essex, need 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; that one over there is my other half Chops, he and I are the best of frends. Unfortunately, I have been badly affected by a tail injury and 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 and over the last year even Chops has gone from being somoen who wouldn't let you near to a cat who likes a stroke. We are hoping that someone will have a spot in their heart for us. We have been neutered and are ready and waiting for the right owner to change our lives.
PIXIE& CHOPS are at Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch. Rehoming in Hornchurch & surrounding areas.
