Rescue cat Coral from Blue Cross, Cambridge, needs a home Hello, my name is Coral. I'm a gorgeous fun loving black female cat. I'm about 4 years old and neutered. I have lots of energy and especially love rolling in cat nip and playing with my rod toys! I am looking for an owner who will be happy to play with me, I provide plenty of entertainment! I'm not really a lap cat, but I quite like to sit next to you on the sofa. I have lived with children in the past, a baby and a teenager. I wasn't overly keen on them, so would often just take myself away from them. I would prefer to be the only pet in the home please as I'm not too keen on other animals. To be honest I don't think you'll need any other animals with me! I'm fun, loving, friendly and playful! I'd like access to the outdoors in my new home please. I'm finding it quite boring in the cattery now, so please come and meet me soon!

Rescue Cat Mabel, Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, Cambridge needs a homeHello, I’m Mabel and I’m 3 years old. I’m a little black and white, female cat and I’ve not been having the best of times recently. Everything was right with my world and then my lovely owner died and I ended up in care and suddenly found out I was to be a mum! It’s turned my little world upside down and I’m feeling a bit frightened and unsure of new people right now. I’m hoping though, that someone special out there will read my little write up and find it in their hearts to give me a home and then give me lots of time and patience to build my confidence at my own pace and help me to find my sparkle. I’ve been neutered and would like a home with a safe garden. I’m not sure about living with children or a home with dogs but I could live with other cats. Do you think you might have a home I could feel safe in and could you watch over me and help me grow and blossom? Please get in touch if you think you can help

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'm not overly keen on being picked up, I prefer all four paws on the ground, but I still love my cuddles. I am easily startled as I'm partially deaf in one year, which has left me with a slight head tilt so I'd probably suit a home with experienced cat owners with no children and no pets. Accces to a safe garden away from main roads would be fantastic! I will be 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 cats Casper and Cos, at National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton, need a new home togetherHello, we’re Casper and Cos, a pair of lively and intelligent five year old brothers in search of a permanent home together. We previously lived in a rural location, which means that our hunting skills are top notch - but our road safety is poor. Another home in the countryside would be ideal for us so that we can expend our energy outdoors without worry. As well as hunting and playing, we both love our food; sometimes Cos can get a little overexcited and pushy when treats are on offer, but he doesn’t mean any harm! We’re really affectionate boys who will make terrific companions given a little time to settle in and gain confidence; a home without children or dogs will suit us best. We are both neutered. If you think that you could offer us a loving forever home, please come and meet us!
CASPER & COS are at National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton. Rehoming in N.E. Essex and S.E. Suffolk.

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 Sam, Catnip Cat Rescue, Harlow needs a homeHello! My name’s Sam and I’m a sweet, little ginger and white boy who’s looking for home to call my own. I’m somewhere around 6 - 7 years old and had been living as a stray for several years. I was lucky to find some strangers who made sure there was food left out for me and a cosy bed but unfortunately they then moved away and I came into care. It took a little time but I’ve now realised that humans can be lovely and I’m a gentle, sweet natured boy who loves a fuss and a gentle scratch between the shoulders. I will need a bit of time and patience when I first arrive at my new home though, to settle in. I’ve been neutered, vaccinated, treated for worms and fleas, microchipped and would like to be your only pet. I’d like an indoor home or one with a secured garden. While I was getting my health check, I found out I had FIV to find out about FIV: Visit Cat Chat’s FIV information page, or the FIV Owner's Club on our friendly forum. I’ve got my paws crossed that my perfect family’s out there just waiting to spot me soon!

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.

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.
PIXIE is at Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch. Rehoming in Hornchurch & surrounding areas.

Rescue cat Raymond from Cats Protection – Southend & District, needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hello, my name is Raymond. I'm a very handsome black male cat. I'm about 12 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 Ruby from National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hello, my name is Ruby. I'm a 2 year old ginger and white female neutered cat looking for my forever home. I'm a sweet and pretty cat, just look at my nice smile in my photo! I was a litle feisty when I first arrived, but now I will quite happily let you stroke me and will even roll over, half curled, for you to stroke my belly. All I need is someone who can read me and tell when I have had enough; at the moment if I have nowhere to escape to if people are visiting me and I have had my fill of strokes. In fact I now don't really interact much at all, I am bored and just want someone to pick me. I'd like a home with an experienced cat owner and with no young children (older children would be okay). I'm vaccinated, microchipped and have had my flea/worm treatment so I'm ready for my new home now please!

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.
ROXY is at Caring for Animals 2001, Thurrock. Rehoming in Essex. To make an enquiry please call: 01708 854567 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Roxy on Cat Chat, thank you!

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.
