Rescue Cat Oreo, National Animal Welfare Trust - Thurrock, Grays needs a homeHello, I’m a tabby and white boy who’s around 4 and a half years old and my name’s Oreo. I’m looking for a home of my own and I’m hoping to find one as soon as I can as being in care is causing me to be a bit stressed. I am a lovely boy but because I’m not settled into a routine, I can be very loving one minute and will swipe out the next! I’m on a special diet for bladder issues and I can also spray. I think though that if I was in a quiet home with no other cats and preferably in an area that didn’t have a lot of other cats living there, I could flourish and grow in confidence. I’d like a home with children no younger than 12 please and somewhere with a garden would be good too. I’ve been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and have been treated for fleas and worms so am good to go. I’m here waiting with my paws crossed that someone will give me a chance and a loving home - please?

Rescue Cat Sid from Meows Cat Rescue, Essex, needs a homeHello. I'm Sid, a lovely 15 year old boy and I'm looking for a new loving home. Before coming into rescue I was living on the streets and a very kind lady found me. I can not see and my life was so very difficult and I was very thin. I am very relieved and grateful as I am happy and healthy now. I am a friendly cat and enjoy a fuss and a cuddle. I would prefer to stay indoors and I can live with other cats. I have had a dental and health check and I'm neutered. If you would like some company please get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cat Alley from RSPCA, Harlow, needs a home Hello, my name is Alley. I'm a pretty tabby cat looking for my new home as sadly my owner was no longer able to care for me. I'm quite timid at the moment, as coming into the rescue has been a big change for me. I'm looking for a quiet and loving home with a patient and kind human to help build my confidence back up. I might not be a lap cat but I will happily snuggle up next to you, which if you think about it, is much more convenient than a lap cat! I'm about 5 years old and am neutered. A home without dogs and without children would be best, and I'd love access to a garden please. I'm a sweet girl and will make a lovely companion so please get in touch for more information about me.

Rescue cat Coco from Blue Cross - Cambridge, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire & Suffolk, needs a homeHello, my name is Coco and I am a a gorgeous young lady who finds herself in need of a new home. I am 11 years old, neutered and am hoping to find a calm and understanding human who will love me. I love head and chin rubs and like to say hello. I am on medication for arthritis so you will need to help me take my medicine. I could live with older children, who will give me space if I need it or I could live happily with just some adults; I would prefer to be the only cat in the home though. If you were to have a garden I could explore I would be so pleased. If you think I could be just the friend you need then make sure to get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue Cat Princess, National Animal Welfare Trust - Thurrock, Grays  needs a homeHello, I’m Princess the lovely tabby and white girl you see in the picture. I’m hoping to find a home to call my own and some people there who will love me and be good at giving fusses (I’m rather fond of getting those!) I’m an 11 year old girl and I’ve been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and am up to date with my flea and worm treatments. I have got diabetes so am hoping to find someone who would be able to inject me with my insulin twice a day, I’m a star when it comes to getting my injections and NAWT will continue to pay for my vet requirements relating to my diabetes. I’m the sweetest girl you could meet and have been told I’m a sweetheart so I’d love you forever if you could take me home and look after me. I’m looking for an indoor home where I’d be the only pet and I’d rather there were no children. I know my someone special is out there and I can’t wait to meet them!

Rescue cats Molly and Dot from Clacton National Animal Welfare Trust, needs homeHi there, my name is Molly and I'm the short-haired girl, my pal Dot has semi-long hair and a beauty spot near her nose. We are a sweet pair of girls who are best friends despite an age gap. I'm 12 but I dont act it! I'm very playful and can more than keep up with 3 year old Dot! I'm the bolder of the two, Dot can be timid until she gets to know you but when she does, she loves a fuss as much as I do. We are both neutered and would be best in a home with adults only or older kids, no other cats and but maybe a gentle calm dog. If you think we could be the pair for you please contact the centre to come and say hello! We can't wait to meet you!

Rescue cat Saskia from Crescent Cat Rescue, Tendring, needs homeHi, I'm Saskia and I'm a rather pretty girl of about 18 months. Being pretty didn't stop me from being left behind in a house move sadly. That was how I ended up in rescue. I can be quite a vocal chatty lady and I like to sit up high and look down on everything. The rescue people think I am part Bengal in terms of my appearance and purrsonality traits! I do like a lot of fuss and attention but I don't like other cats and dogs. I'd like to be your only companion. When I arrived at rescue I had a bit of a skin/fur problem but this is responding nicely to treatment and I'm looking rather fetching again. I am neutered too, so am ready to go, please say you might have a Saskia shaped space in your heart and home. I'd be ever so happy.

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 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.
