Rescue Cat Crystal, Battersea at Old Windsor, Windsor needs a homeHello, I’m a sweet natured, little tabby and white girl called Crystal. I’m 11 years old and I’ve been neutered. I’m looking for a home to call my own, one with a comfy lap to cuddle in and some people to love. I’m an affectionate cat although I will take a little time to feel settled and find my paws in my new home. Once I’m settled though, I’ll show you what a loving puss I am. I like going outside and if my new owners are out at work, would like a cat flap to let me come and go as I please. I’m fine living with older children and teenagers but I’d like to be your only pet please. If you think I could be the girl for you, please get in touch soon!

Rescue cat Patches from Cats Protection Lea Valley, Enfield, Hertfordshire, London East, needs a homeHi, my name is Patches. I am 2 years old, neutered and I think I am just the most fabulous black & white cat you have ever seen and I have been waiting so patiently for someone to choose me. I arrived as a stray with a flea allergy and lots of missing fur. With regular flea treatment and time my coat has grown back and I am looking very handsome now. I love fuss and company and could happily live in a home with older children who will help me play with toys. I would love a garden to explore when I am fully settled in, but mainly what I want is loving family and a home to call my very own.

Rescue cats Snowflake and Mimi from Cats Protection Lea Valley, Enfield, Hertfordshire, London East, need a homeHello, My name is Snowflake, I am a stunning white, tripod lad and this is Mimi my best friend. We are 9 months old and have both been neutered. People tend to look past me because I only have 3 legs, but it doesn't stop me from doing anything; I love to play and will shower you with affection. Mimi is a little more shy and needs time to come around to new people and new situations, but with me by her side she will get there and your patience will be rewarded with love and companionship. We are looking for a loving home, where we can be the only pets. If you think you could offer us our purr-fect home, then please get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cat Alley from RSPCA, Harlow, needs a home Hello, my name is Alley. I'm a pretty tabby cat looking for my new home as sadly my owner was no longer able to care for me. I'm quite timid at the moment, as coming into the rescue has been a big change for me. I'm looking for a quiet and loving home with a patient and kind human to help build my confidence back up. I might not be a lap cat but I will happily snuggle up next to you, which if you think about it, is much more convenient than a lap cat! I'm about 5 years old and am neutered. A home without dogs and without children would be best, and I'd love access to a garden please. I'm a sweet girl and will make a lovely companion so please get in touch for more information about me.

Rescue cat Brandy from Blue Cross - Cambridge, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire & Suffolk, needs a homeGood day, my name is Brandy and I am a 6 year old ginger & white girl. I am on the hunt for a new home; I really don't like the cattery life or sharing my space with other cats and pets. I am looking for an adult home with an experienced owner who will let me come round and blossom in my own time; you will be rewarded with my affection once I learn to trust and I have been known to allow a tummy tickle in the past. I am hoping that you might also have a safe outside space for me to enjoy when I am fully settled in. I know that I am after a very special human, I just hope you come along soon. I am neutered and ready to have a home of my very own again.

Rescue cat Coco from Blue Cross - Cambridge, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire & Suffolk, needs a homeHello, my name is Coco and I am a a gorgeous young lady who finds herself in need of a new home. I am 11 years old, neutered and am hoping to find a calm and understanding human who will love me. I love head and chin rubs and like to say hello. I am on medication for arthritis so you will need to help me take my medicine. I could live with older children, who will give me space if I need it or I could live happily with just some adults; I would prefer to be the only cat in the home though. If you were to have a garden I could explore I would be so pleased. If you think I could be just the friend you need then make sure to get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue Cat Marmite, Glendee Rescue and Rehoming, Welham Green,  needs a homeHello! My name’s Marmite and I’m a handsome tabby and white boy looking for a home to call my own.

I’m in good health and have been neutered. I could live with older children and although I wouldn’t want to live with a dog, I could live with a companion female cat. I’m looking for somewhere quiet and away from busy roads, with a safe garden, I do like getting out for some mini adventures!

I can be wary of people but I do now seek out some fuss and strokes, but it has taken time, so a loving and patient new owner would be wonderful. I'm an independent boy and would like access to a safe garden please. I'd prefer a home without children, but could possibly live with another cat or dog.

Rescue cat Lily from South Oxhey Animal Rescue, Watford, needs a homeHi there. My name's Lily, and I'm a sweet 7 year old lady. When I first arrived at the rescue I wasn't sure how to approach people for strokes or play with them, but now I have settled in well - I approach to be stroked, rub around legs and play with things like shoelaces. I'm a quiet and placid cat who would prefer to be the only cat in my new loving home and not live with children or dogs. I would love a secure garden too. I have a low grade heart murmur but this doesn't stop me from being active and doesn't need any medication. I'm neutered and my first vaccine will be done before I go to my new home.

Rescue cat Tortie, at Little Cottage Rescue, Luton, needs a new homeHello, my name is Tortie. I’m a beautiful, friendly, one year old lady with a short-haired brindle tortoiseshell coat. I’m looking for a loving permanent home where I can enjoy all the attention I require (lots!) and become a cherished furry companion. I could share a home with other friendly cats or small dogs, and I can also take sensible older children in my stride. Once I’ve been given time to settle into my new home and overcome any initial shyness I’ll be able to show you what a delightful and affectionate youngster I am. I’d enjoy having access to a safe garden to play in too. I’m microchipped, spayed and vaccinated, and ready and waiting to begin my wonderful new life. Are you the lucky human who’ll be able to offer me the caring forever home I deserve?

Rescue Cat Ben, Homeless Cats Rescue, Luton needs a homeHello, my name’s Ben and I’m a 10 year old, ginger and white boy who’s hoping I can find my someone special. I have had a bit of an adventuresome life and it’s thought that I had never been inside until recently. I need my new owner to have lots of patience while I settle in to my new surroundings but given time I will settle and once I do I love fusses and brushing and have even learned to play with my feather on a stick! Ideally I’ll need kept inside for at least 2 months until I get used to my new owner and if I could have a spare room to settle into and feel safe before being slowly introduced to other family members. Everything’s just a bit strange to me but I can and do get used to everything with patience and love. I’m looking for a home with no children and no other pets please. I’ve been neutered and microchipped. I’m a carrier for the flu virus, this doesn’t bother me but if I’m stressed, I can sometimes sneeze and blow bubbles from my nose. Do you think you could give me the chance I’m looking for?

Rescue cat Aliss from Cat & Kitten Rescue, Watford, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, West London, needs a homeMy name is Aliss and I am a very smart cat; that is me helping with the crossword there. I am around 15 months old and arrived heavily pregnant; I went on to have my babies almost immediately and now that they are off in their own homes I have my paws crossed that someone will choose me next for a forever home. I haven't had much to do with other cats, apart from the kittens and I was fine with them, so I may be able to join a family with cats but would be just as happy on my own. I could live with children if you have those already. I am an affectionate girl, who just needs a human of my own to love. I am neutered, chipped and vet checked and will arrive with 4 weeks free insurance. If you think I could be the one for you, purr-lease get in touch as soon as you can.
