Rescue Cat Harvey, Homeless Cat Rescue, Luton needs a homeWell hello there! I’m Harvey and as you can see, I’m a rather handsome black and white male cat. I’ve been a stray and have had a hard life up until the rescue took me in and so I’m hoping to find a lovely home to call my own. I’ve been neutered and while being checked over I was found to be FIV+ but I’m in good health and it’s a slow acting virus so I’m looking forward to a long and happy life with my new owner. I’m 5 years of age and have been chipped, had my worms treated and been vaccinated. I could live with other cats but not with dogs and I’m not sure about children as I’ve not had much meetings with little people. I’m looking for an enclose garden or if you wanted an indoor cat, I could do that too - as long as there’s someone there a lot to give me attention and lots of cuddles! I love my food and when I’m really happy, I look almost like I’m smiling…of course, to see that you’ll have to come for a visit to see! Hope to see you soon!

Rescue cat Ozzy from Cats Protection - North Hertfordshire, needs homeHi there, I'm Ozzy and I'm about 4 years old. I'm a former stray and my tough background has made me very wary of humans. I'm looking for a special human who can help continue the recent progress I have made with my fosterer. I have started to take treats from her and let her get closer each time, showing curiosity in what she's doing. As I'm still very scared, I can hiss when someone approaches. I'm best in an adult home without any dogs but I may be ok with other cats as I have been ok with them when I was a stray. I have had a very difficult life and this has had an impact on me but I think I still deserve a chance to learn to trust and settle in a home of my own, don't I? I just need someone special and gentle enough.

Rescue Cat Wilma, Cats Protection - North Hertfordshire, Stevenage needs a homeHello, my name’s Wilma and I’m a lovely black and white girl who’s 14 years old. I’m looking for a quiet, loving home for my retirement. I’ve been told I’m a real sweetheart and I must admit, 1 do love my cuddles and plenty of attention so i was kind of hoping that my new home would have someone home for most of the day. I love getting cuddles so much, if you stop I’ll give you a tap to carry on cuddling or will climb up for more cuddles! Although I was an outdoor cat, I’d be happy as an indoor one now. I’d also like to be your only pet but I’ll give you plenty of cuddles so you wouldn’t need anything else anyway! I also think I’d be best in a home without young children please. I’ve been neutered and am a happy, sweet natured little cat who’s really hoping for a forever home - could that be with you?

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 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.

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. Please get in touch for more information about me. Look at me all snuggled up, just patiently waiting for my loving new humans!

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.
