Rescue cat Flint, from Crescent Cat Rescue, Tendring, needs a homeMeow! My name is Flint; how do you do? I am a handsome four year old neutered chap. My hobbies include chasing leaves, playing and keeping my bib nice and white. Speaking of my bib, have you ever seen a smarter kitty than me? I think not! Some people say I'm a bit quiet when meeting new people, but usually I'm just thinking of new ways to keep my bib in top condition, while also trying to work out whether you are one of the friendly humans or not! My previous owner sadly passed away, so I'd love to find a similarly caring person that gives me space when I need it, but also makes a fuss over me and gives me affection when I need it. I'm a characterful cat that is used to children, but equally would like a quiet home with access to the outside, where I can while away the days trying to catch those pesky leaves without fear of being spooked. I'm up to date on my vaccines, and will just sit here waiting (not so) patiently until you can come to visit!

Rescue cat Maisie from National Animal Welfare Trust, Clacton needs a home Hello, my name is Maisie. I'm a pretty tortoiseshell female cat looking for my forever home, could you help? I'd really like a loving quiet and adult only home where I can be the only pet and where I can have access to the outside. This will allow me to enjoy the occasional sunbathing session! I like my own space, as us cats tend to, and I can be a bit protective of my bedding area as I like it all to myself, but who doesn't?! At the rescue we have lots of different interactive feeders; I have figured them all out, so one might want to say that I'm a very clever cat! I'm about 12 and a half years old and am neutered. If you have a warm loving space for me in your home and heart, please get in touch!
MAISIE is at National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton. Rehoming in Essex and Suffolk.

Rescue cat Kit, from National Animal Welfare Trust, Clacton, needs a homeHi there, my name is Kit. Kit the cat! I'm a simply adorable four year old lady puss with lovely tabby and white fur. Aren't I pretty! I will take your silence as a yes! Now I know I'm a Very Important Puss, so I have no idea why I've been overlooked - perhaps I'm just too purrfect? I'm certainly the best cat you'll ever meet; so good you'll want to have me as your only pet, because I'll need 100% of your affection! And don't worry, I'll tell you how much attention I want, and when I want it! You'll also have to learn how to play my favourite game with my fishing toy; the rules are simple: I try and catch the toy, and you indulge me until I collapse! I don't like sharing, and that goes for pretty much anything - food, treats, toys, the remote - you name it, it's mine! So a calm home without other pets or children would be best for me. Previously I have been kept indoors, which I found a bit restrictive to be honest - in my new home I'd really like the opportunity to explore outside in a safe garden space, when that elusive British sun shines! I am neutered and all ready to go, so if you think you've got what it takes to spoil me, please get in touch - you won't regret it, I promise.

Rescue cat Rosie from Orphan Annie's Cat Rescue, Basildon, Essex, needs a homeHi there, my name is Rosie and I am a beautiful black and white lassie; I am 5 years old and I am neutered. I am a friendly and affectionate girl, who loves to cuddle up on a nice comfy lap and have a little snooze. I am hoping that there is a home out there just waiting for me to join it; I would love a home with a garden for some sunbathing and exploring but would prefer to be your only pet and I really would rather a home with older children or adults only if it is possible. If you think I might be just the puss to fill your heart with love then do get in touch, I could be packed in just a jiffy.

Rescue Cat Snoopy from Blue Cross, Cambridge, needs a homeHello, my name is Snoopy. I'm an adorable black and white 7 year old male cat. I'm hoping to find some kind and loving humans to live with, do you know any?? I'm with a fosterer at the moment; I found being at the rescue quite unsettling as I was a bit unsure of all the new surroundings. My fosterers have been great allowing me the time I need to get settled. Love, fuss and patience from my new owners is all I really need to help me get comfortable in my new home. I might be okay to live with calm and understanding children, but it'd be best if we met first! I haven't lived with other pets before and think I would prefer to keep it this way. I am neutered and would like access to the outdoors when I'm settled in my new home; I enjoy my outside adventures very much! Please get in touch for more information about me, you won't regret it.

Rescue Cats Bucks & Fizz, Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, Cambridge needs a homeHello! We’re a sister duo called Bucks and Fizz and we’re a rather lovely pair of black, shorthaired girls who happen to find ourselves looking for a home. We’re both neutered and are 10 years old. We think that we’re just the purrfect age - old enough to have our quiet times and yet still young enough to have a play! We’re both very affectionate and adore being fussed, Fizz is braver than I am but I’m gaining in confidence with each day. We’re rather hoping for a home where we can stay together and are hoping for a family with lots of cuddles to share oh and a comfy lap for us to curl up on! We have previously lived as indoor cats and would like somewhere where we’re not left on our own for too long. We’re happy to meet children and could potentially live with other pets. We could almost be twins we’re so alike but we’ll let you into a little secret - Fizz has a tiny white patch on her chest. If you think you have the lap space and cuddles we’re looking for, please get in touch we’d love to meet you!

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.

Rescue cat Tigger from Basildon Cat Rescue, Essex, needs a homeHi there, my name is Tigger and as you can probably see I am a handsome tabby & white chap. I am around 3 years old and have been neutered. I came to Straycatz Basildon to see if they could find me a new home, preferably one with a garden for when the sun makes an appearance, because I do quite like the feeling of the sun gently warming my belly while I sunbathe. I am a very loyal companion and am hoping to find a human who needs a new best friend; if necessary I could share said human with other cats but I do draw the line at dogs and I would prefer no young children either. If you are in the market for some furry company then do get in touch, I am sure we could be best pals in no time.

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 Ruby from National Animal Welfare Trust, Thurrock, needs a homeHello, 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 enjoy fuss and attention, but will let you know when I've had enough fuss. 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 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.
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.
