Rescue cat Barney, from RSPCA Stort Valley, Harlow, needs a homeMeow! My name is Barney, a lovable and friendly five year old tabby with a keen interest in exploring the outside and chasing critters around the garden. I'm a big lad, which gives me a cute and cuddly appearance, but in fact I do enjoy a good stroke. I'm particularly partial to scratched behind my ears; it's heavenly! As you may have gathered, I love the outside, so I would need an owner who has the home to suit my hobbies. I've been neutered and would be fine around other cats or even children, due to my lovable and calm nature. If you're interested in a cat that is happy to go out exploring before coming home for cuddles and attention, I'm the perfect pick.
BARNEY is at RSPCA - Stort Valley, Harlow. Rehoming in Saffron Walden in Essex to Broxbourne in Hertfordshire - including Bishop’s Stortford, Harlow and surrounding villages. To make an enquiry, please call: 01279 306058, and please mention you saw Barney on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cats, Magic and Merlin, Little Cottage Rescue, LutonHello, we are Magic and Merlin, two handsome, neutered, 6 month old brothers. We were rescued from a house where we were mistreated by children, so we are looking for a new home together, with adults only, or with older children please, and no dogs. We would love a garden too, so we can explore the outdoors. We thought we had a new home, but sadly after 3 weeks we could not stay with our rescuer, as she was suddenly losing her home. She wanted us to stay with her, and we were all very upset.  Could you offer us a permanent, loving home together? If you think so, please get in touch and our carer will tell you lots more about us. We have our paws tightly crossed!

Rescue cat Zinc from Cat & Kitten Rescue, Watford, needs a homeHi, my name is Zinc; I am a white, neutered, lass and am around 18 months old. Now, I would like to let you know that I can hear; I know some white cats can’t but I most certainly can. I am a very relaxed lass, who likes to be picked up or rub myself on your legs, all in all I am a super cat, ready to come home with you if you like. I would like a home where I can venture outside if the mood takes me and I could happily live with children, although I am not sure about dogs. I came in with my kitten, but I would prefer to not live with other cats, so it will just be me moving in. If you are looking for a new furry feline friend, then look no further and give me a call, well, not me obviously, but the chaps here will take a message!

Rescue cat Hoot from National Animal Welfare Trust - Hertfordshire, Watford, needs homeHello my name is Hoot and I am a lovely, neutered, friendly boy that just can’t get enough attention. I love having cuddles and will tap you with my paw if you stop stroking me! Despite my age (10 years old) I still love to play with my fishing rod toy and I adore my food. I am looking for a home with adults or families who have children aged 8 years and above. Unfortunately I have a medical condition so I cannot live with other cats and can’t have access to the outside so I would be perfect for a family who are looking for a housecat. I cannot live with dogs as they scare me. My medical condition does not stop me from running around, playing with toys and living my life to the fullest. If you could give me the home I wish for and a chance of happiness, I would show my thanks with all the love I have to give.

Rescue Cat Missy from Cool Cats at National Animal Welfare Trust - Hertfordshire, Watford, needs a homeHi there, I’m Missy and I’m a cute little black and white girl who’s 5 years old and I’ve been neutered. I love having cuddles, playing and snuggling in warm cosy places. If you’re good at cuddling, have excellent waggle the catnip mousey skills and lots of snuggly warm places for me to have a nap, you could be just who I’m looking for! Ooh, while I remember, Dreamies are my favourite treats…thought I’d better let you know that so you could get some in for me! I’m looking for a home with adults or families with older children and I like having all the attention to myself so I’d like to be your only pet please. I’m quite stressed out here and am not showing myself to my best potential but if you gave me a home, with time I’d settle in and become the happy, cuddly girl I know I am. I’d also love it if you had a garden for me to explore, once I’m settled in. If you think you couldn’t possibly miss out in having me as your best friend, get in touch on the contacts below!

Rescue cat Max from Cats Protection - Welwyn, Hatfield and District, Welwyn, Hertfordshire, needs a homeHello; my name is Max and I am a 12 years young, neutered tabby cat. I am a confident and friendly chap, and I find myself looking for a new home. I have lived with children and would be happy to be a family cat; I quite enjoy the fusses and I do like to have a little chat with anyone who will listen especially around dinner time, and I am an excellent ear for someone who needs a companion. Now I understand that I might not be the right cat for everyone and that some people may be put off because I have reached double digits, but do remember that we mature cats will not climb up your curtains, but may climb onto your lap and into your heart. I am hoping that the right person for me is out there, and if it might be you, that you will arrange to meet me, see my handsome features and fall in love.
MAX is at Cats Protection - Welwyn, Hatfield & District. Re-homing in Hertfordshire. To make an enquiry please call: 0345 371 1855 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Max on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue Cat Kiara from Battersea at Old Windsor, Berkshire needs a homeHello, my name’s Kiara pleased to meet you! I’m a beautiful 7 year old, neutered, Bengal girl who’s looking for a home hopefully with someone who knows what it’s like to own a Bengal. I didn’t really get on with the other cat in my previous home but I’m a friendly, playful and interactive girl. I’m needing some time spent on me and somewhere with plenty of space so that I can realise my full potential as an active and inquisitive girl and bond with my new owner. I’m looking for a home with no young children and with no other pets. I’m not used to busy or main roads so I’d be happier in a quieter location with lots of green spaces to allow me the chance to hunt and explore safely. I might take a little while to settle in and get to know you but I know that once I do you’ll wonder how you lived without me in your life!
KIARA is at Battersea at Old Windsor. Rehoming in Berkshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, West London & Surrey.

Rescue Cat Bruce from Homeless Cat Rescue, Luton needs a homeHello! Bruce here, I’m a 3-4 year old, neutered, black and white boy. I know what you're thinking…what’s a handsome chap like myself doing looking for a home? I’m wondering the same thing and reckon it’s just that my awesomeness may be keeping people at bay but just so you know, I can be incredibly cute at times too and once you’re used to my ways, I’m really loving and adorable. I don’t like being picked up and also don’t like my body stroked. Also, if you could not stroke my head while I’m washing myself that would be brilliant. When I’m not washing myself however, stroke my head to hear me purr loudly. I love company and enjoy supervising you and if I feel you may have slept in, I’ll give you the gentlest of taps on your face and if that doesn’t wake you will rub you and purr, I can’t think of a better way to waken up can you?! I love my food and treats and I do like to play. I enjoy going outside for a prowl so would love a garden. I’m best in a family without any children. I’d rather not share with any other cats but I’m not sure about dogs. I bet you can’t resist me now can you, the contact details are below I can’t wait to meet you!
BRUCE is at Homeless Cat Rescue, Luton. Rehoming in Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire. To make an enquiry, please call: 01582 529009 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Bruce on Cat Chat, thank you!
