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 Tina from Cats Protection - Tendring & District, Clacton-on-Sea needs a homeHello! My name’s Tina and I’m looking for my Happy Ever After story. I’m a beautiful black and tortie girl, I’m 3 years old and have been neutered. I was found as a stray and although the people at the rescue and me looked for my owner, we couldn’t find them. So the people here said that they’d help me find a new home where I can have lots of fuss and get my tummy tickled. I’m hoping to find someone who knows just how to tickle a tummy and I’ll love them forever! I’m very friendly and loved having my photo taken too, well, if you have star quality you’ve got to flaunt it don’t you?! I’d like to have a garden to stroll about in and I’d be happy if there are children as part of my new family because it means more people to fuss me! I’m not sure about living with dogs and want to be your only cat. So, how about being my fairy godmother and getting in touch, please?

Rescue cat Lola, from Cats Protection, Tendring, needs a home.Hiya, I’m Lola! (or lovely Lola as they call me here at the rescue). I am a 3 year old, neutered, tortie and white girl. Sadly, I had to come into rescue because my owner moved onto a caravan site, and just left me behind. I don't understand why, I am a very friendly, and affectionate girl, and I'm no bother at all. I am now having to look for a new home to call my own.  I would like a home with a garden, so I can enjoy the outdoors, and I would prefer there to be no other cats please, so all the attention is for me, other than that I would pretty much suit any family home. Have you got room in your heart to make me the highlight of your life? If you want to meet me please contact the rescue.

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 Abbey from Cats Protection - Southend & District, Essex needs a homeHello, my name’s Abbey and I’m a 7 year old Tortie and white girl looking for a home with someone who’s an experienced cat owner. I was a stray but was found by the people here at Cats Protection. My coat was in a horrible mess when they found me, all matted and everything and I wasn’t very comfortable. They took me to the vet person who sorted out my coat and it’s now grown back in lovely - if you look at my picture you can see how gorgeous I look. I’m going to need a bit of time to settle in and learn to trust you but I know my special person is out there who will love me whatever. I’ve been neutered and would like a garden to have a stroll in. I’d be best as your only pet and I’m not sure about living with children I hope you’ll give me a chance to become a loved pussy cat with a home of my own!

Rescue cat Polo from National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton, Essex, needs a homeHello, my name is Polo and I am a neutered 1 year old white and black chap. I am a bit timid; I am never grumpy I just need more time to get to know people before I open up. The staff have been working hard with me and I will now take a treat off a hand of the people I know well. I am looking for an experienced home, where I will be given lots of understanding and patience because it may well take some time before I feel comfortable around new people. I could live with other cats, they could show me the ropes I suppose and I could also meet families with children aged 10 + who would know to give me time and space; but I would rather not live with a dog. If you think you have the love in your heart to help me blossom, do get in touch.

Rescue cat Frodo from National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton, Essex, needs a homeHi there, my name is Frodo. I came here as a stray and was sadly not claimed so here I am on the lookout for a new family; I am 2 years old and have been neutered. I was very scare when I first arrived but I as I have got to know the staff I realised they were nice and would help me play with toys and give me attention and dinner regularly as clockwork. They now say that I am ready to find a forever home and that someone will be lucky to have me to love and I have my paws crossed that you will fall in love. I would like a home with a garden, so that once I am settled in I can explore a little; I may be able to live with older children, 12+; but I am not sure about other pets.

Rescue cat Cassie, at Blue Cross Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a new homeHello, my name is Cassie.  I'm a gorgeous short-haired tortie and white girl of eight years old, and I'm looking for a fabulous permanent home.  My perfect home will have plenty of room for me to chase around after my toys, plus a human friend (or several) to play with me and listen to all my kitty chattering!  I haven't been outdoors before but once I've settled into my new home I'd enjoy having a safe garden to explore.  I'm happy to share a home with sensible, calm children who will treat me kindly, but I'd prefer to be the only furry resident as I'd like to have all your attention to myself.  I have been spayed.  If you think that you could offer me a forever home with all the love, fun and affection I deserve, then I'd love to meet you!

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.
