Rescue cats Sweep and Ollie from Crescent Cat Rescue, Tendring, Essex, need a homeHi there! I'm Sweep. Me and my pal Ollie came into the rescue because of a change in our family's circumstances. We have had sensitive tummies at times but we're on a special dry food which is helping. We are both 3 years old, neutered, friendly and very playful. We would love a home together without any other pets or young children.

Rescue cats Poppy & Katie from Cats Protection Southend and District, Essex, need a homeHello, I’m Poppy, a beautiful white and tabby female of about 18 years of age and I’m here with my very good friend Katie to see if we can find a home to call our own. Katie is 8 years old and we were in a loving home together but unfortunately our owner passed away and we find ourselves needing someone else to take care of us. We would prefer to be indoor cats, as that is all we have known and we would like a home with no other pets or children; we have both been neutered and have our paws crossed that someone will fall in love with us soon - we are both looking forward to curling up on a nice warm lap. If you think that you might be able to offer us a forever home, please get in touch.

Rescue cat Eadie from Cats Protection, Southend & District, needs a homeHi, I'm Eadie. I'm a lovely black female, about eight years old (I can't quite remember). I was found living as a stray and was very underweight. With a lot of time and TLC I have blossomed into the beautiful little lady you see before you. As well as beautiful, I am very gentle and affectionate. I really want the company of someone that will make a fuss of me and can provide me with access to outdoors. I have been neutered and am ready to pack my bags and come to my forever home, all I am waiting for is you to fall in love with me.

Rescue cats Boris & Doris from Purrs Cat Rescue, Hornchurch, needs homeHi, I'm Boris and this is my sister Doris. We're about 4 months old. We are both very sweet and fun loving. The rescue people say we are 'cutie-pies' whatever that means! Doris has a slight mobility problem with her leg but it doesn't hold her back she's still jumping and playing like any other kitten, bless her! We will need access to a safe outdoor space, away from busy roads. We will be neutered/spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and will be flea and worm treated when we are adopted. Please say you will have a think about making two mini-panthers happy little kitties. We will pay you back with fun and love!

Rescue cat Chunky from Blue Cross, Cambridge, needs a homeHello, my name is Chunky. I'm a lovely handsome boy looking for a home and humans to call my own, can you help? I love playing, being groomed and once I'm settled in curling up on a nice warm lap. I would prefer to be the only pet in my new home please and would love access to a garden so I can enjoy a bit of sunbathing. I am able to live with older calmer children. I would love to find a loving and calm home where I can relax. I'm about 11 years old (and yes, I did sneakily leave that until last, sadly it is harder to rehome older cats - and I'm not sure why as I'm such a lovely boy with many years left!). I'm a black cat and am neutered. Please get in touch for more information about me.

Rescue Cat Maggie from Blue Cross Rehoming Centre, Cambridge, needs a homeHello there, I’m Maggie. I’m 15 years old and looking for a nice relaxed home where I can just hang out and live life in the slow lane. I know us older cats tend to get overlooked for the younger models but I still have a whole heap of love to give. I can live with children but would like to be the only pet. I enjoy relaxing in the glorious sunshine so an outside spot would be amazing. I’m neutered and looking forward to getting out of here and being your best friend.

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.
