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 Babs, at Clacton National Animal Welfare Trust, needs a new homeHello, my name is Babs. I’m a sweet-natured, spayed lady of five years old, with a short-haired white and black coat and an unusual (but very charming) habit of carrying my tail curled into a loop. I’m looking for a wonderful forever home in which I’ll be given all the fusses I require, and also the space I’d like when I’m feeling more independent. A home with adults only, or perhaps with older sensible children, will suit me best as I’m not used to youngsters; and as I’m not keen on other cats or dogs I’d prefer to be your only furry resident. Once I’ve settled in I’d enjoy having access to a safe garden to explore. If you think that you may be able to offer me a permanent caring home, I’d love to meet you!

Rescue cat Billy, at Blue Cross, Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a new homeHello, my name is Billy. I’m a gorgeous, neutered boy of twelve years old, with a short haired ginger coat. I’m looking for a loving permanent home where I can stroll indoors and out as I please, enjoying a calm and relaxed environment and winning over any human I encounter with my adorable face! An adult home, or one with older children, will suit me best; I’d also like to be the only pet in my kitty kingdom as I’m not a fan of other felines. My sweet and friendly nature has won me many human friends here in rescue, and I’m hoping that I’ll soon find a forever home with a devoted human companion or two of my very own. Could you offer me the love and care I deserve?

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 Cat Spooky from Cats Protection - Southend & District, needs a homeWell hello there, I’m Spooky. I’m a sixteen year old neutered female with a lovely black coat. I was brought into the rescue after having been seen living in a garden for a good few months with another cat. Unfortunately, despite being microchipped, my owner could not be found. I’m looking for an indoor home with no children or dogs but I’m happy to live with other cats. As they’ll tell you here at the rescue, I have a really loving nature and love to have a snuggle on your lap. If you think you can provide me with a home and a warm lap to sit on then please do get in touch.

Rescue cat Dotti from Bow Lodge Cat Rescue, Thurrock, Essex, West Kent, needs a homeHello everyone, Dotti here. I’m a 15 year old, neutered, calico and white girl, my owner sadly died recently and I’ve found myself looking for a new home. I thought I was all settled so it’s given me a bit of a shake and left me feeling a bit insecure. I was hoping I might find myself a kindly person, with a bit of room in their home and heart for me to share. I’d be looking for a home with a garden and somewhere with teenage children or older and no other pets. I’m doing well for my age, I do have to have tablets every day (I take them easily in a bit of butter) that’s just for some water round my heart and I need 6 monthly trips to the vet to keep a check on it. I’ll take a little bit of settling in and getting to know you but all’s good once I do know you. So, do you think you might have the special love and tlc I can only get from a forever home? If you think I could be your girl, please do get in touch xx

Rescue cat Albert from Bow Lodge Cat Rescue, Thurrock, Essex, West Kent, needs a homeHello, my name is Albert and I am a very distinguished gentleman; I am 17 years young, neutered and looking for a comfy place to lay my head and call my own. I would like to find myself a quiet home, with a human who will love and fuss me and will let me sit next to them on a comfy sofa. I have a thyroid condition and need daily medication, and I also have a diet specifically for the older cat. I am a deaf cat and would need an indoor home; being deaf doesn't stop me from having a good chat and telling anyone who will listen about my day, especially when I can see that you are getting dinner ready. I could probably live with children aged 7+, but would rather be the only pet in the home. Could you be the one to give me a loving home; the rescue will cover the cost of medication to help me find my purr-fect home.

Rescue Cat Hetty, Cats Protection - Southend & District, Southend needs a homeHello, my name’s Hetty and I’m the pretty tabby girl you see in the picture there. I’m a 6 year old girl and up until recently have been getting shelter and food from a lovely person in their garden. I am used to people so it’s thought I must have had a home at some point but I’m not telling, so I’m here at the rescue to try and find me a home where I might get some love, attention and home comforts all of my own. I’m scared at being confined in a pen and am hoping that someone kind and big hearted spots my ad and offers to help me. I’ll need my new owner to be patient until I get used to having a home and person of my own again. I’d prefer a home with no children and no other cats and I might be able to live with a dog as I did get on with a dog where I was sheltering. I’ve been neutered and would love a garden to sunbathe and play in. Could you be the one I’m looking for?

Rescue cat Milo from National Animal Welfare Trust - Thurrock, Grays, Essex, needs a homeHello everyone, my name is Milo and I am handsome, floofy, lad who has spent some time living as a stray. I am still a little timid and am looking for a patient hooman who will take time to get to know me and let me learn to trust you, once I know you are friendly I will let you stroke me. I am hoping that I could find a home with no young children as they might not understand that I need my space. I am neutered, chipped and vaccinated, so I am ready to pack my bags and move on. If you think I could be the floof for you make sure to get in touch.

Rescue cat Susie, from Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a homeHi there, my name is Susie. Don't I look adorable in my photo? I'm a neutered black and white girl of a very distinguished eleven years old. I am looking for a calm and quiet home where I can stretch out and relax, without fear of other pets or noisy young humans - though I could possibly live with older children if they're kind to me. I need lots of kindness you see, as I'm very shy and it's likely to take me a while to come out of my shell at first. My favourite thing to do is snuggle up nice and warm in my igloo bed, so cosy! Once I'm settled and comfortable in my new home I'll be happy to have a wander around the house, maybe sit on a windowsill or curl up on a cushion. When it's nice out I'd like to be able to have a bit of a sunbathe too, so access to the outdoors would be perfect. I also love my food, so that's maybe a way of winning my heart if you can find out my favourite snack! It'll be worth the wait of winning me over, I promise. If you think you have a Susie-shaped place in your heart and home, please get in touch - you won't regret it!

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.
