Rescue cat Cassie, at Blue Cross Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a new homeHello, my name is Cassie.  I'm a gorgeous short-haired tortie and white girl of eight years old, and I'm looking for a fabulous permanent home.  My perfect home will have plenty of room for me to chase around after my toys, plus a human friend (or several) to play with me and listen to all my kitty chattering!  I haven't been outdoors before but once I've settled into my new home I'd enjoy having a safe garden to explore.  I'm happy to share a home with sensible, calm children who will treat me kindly, but I'd prefer to be the only furry resident as I'd like to have all your attention to myself.  I have been spayed.  If you think that you could offer me a forever home with all the love, fun and affection I deserve, then I'd love to meet you!

Hi There Folks, I am an independent 3 year old tabby & white fella, but am very playful and affectionate when I want to be. I'd love to find a nice quiet home to relax in and where I can play with my toys in peace. I've lived with other cats and dogs in the past, but ideally would rather be on my own in my new home, I'm not sure about children as I've never really met any.  Because I can be quite nervy and fearful, it may take me a little while to get settled into any new environment and feel comfortable enough to come out of my shell. So I would be better suited with older children rather than little ones. But if you are patient and calm with me, I'll make a wonderful companion (if I do say so myself!)

Rescue cat Jessie, from Homeless Cat Rescue, Luton, needs a homeHi human, my name is Jessie. I may look like some sort of cute sausage in my photo, but I am actually a sweet natured lady cat of 5 years old, with lovely soft tortie fur and big, expressive eyes. Although I suffer with sensitive skin, this is easily treated with steroids and as long as I'm kept up-to-date with my flea treatment I'll be right as rain. Some gentle, therapeutic grooming sessions wouldn't go amiss either! When I am not impersonating a German delicacy, I love cuddles and fuss and really am quite the softie when it comes to human affection. When I want to be loved, you'll know cause I'll follow you around until I get what I want! I am spayed, chipped and ready to go, so if you have the perfect home for me, please get in touch. As long as I am the only cat, I really would make the perfect addition to any home. Could I be the one for you?

Rescue Cat Smudge from Cats Protection - Harlow, Epping Forest & District, Essex needs a homeHello! My name’s Smudge and I’m a gorgeous Tortie and black lady who’s looking for a home where I’ll be loved and pampered! I’m 5 years old and I came in to the rescue with my sister Poppy. She’s gone to a wonderful new home and I’m waiting for it to be my turn now. My new family must have comfy laps as one of my favourite pass times is curling up for a snooze and I’ve found the best place to do that is in a nice comfy lap. Another hobby I have is playing and particularly with my dangly toy fish - again I will need your assistance with that so hopefully you’ll be expert with wiggling the fish so I can have lots of fun pouncing! I’m fine with children but would prefer to be the only pet as I want to be centre of attention. I’d also love to have a garden to have a play in. I’ve been neutered and I do have a treatable heart condition but don’t worry, I have daily medication and it in no way cramps my style! So, can my dangly fish and me come and live with you?

Hello, we are Josie & Smarty and both aged one year. We came here from different back grounds both not very nice, but since being here we have found each other and are both great friends. Josie is a little white and black girl, and I am a handsome black and white boy. We are starting to gain the trust of people as we were both treated poorly in our previous homes, and took to each other for company. So we really want to be homed together, breaking us up would really make us sad. Please pop along to meet us and you won't be disapointed, Promise.

Rescue cat Mavis, from Hula Animal Rescue in Milton Keynes, needs a homeHi! My name is Mavis. I am a 14 year old neutered girl with a lovely grey and white coat. I am looking for a settled home for a quiet retirement, without other cats - I can be a bit of a diva if I have to share attention. Having said that I'm a sweet girl who likes affection, albeit on my own terms! Despite my age I am still very active and love to play and explore the outdoors, so a cat flap and plenty of toys will be essential! I love my food, perhaps a bit too much, so I'll need you to help me stick to my diet so I can watch my figure! With a bit of play and lots of toys, I'm sure it will be easy enough to keep in shape. If you think you can give me what I need to settle in and enjoy my golden years, please do get touch - you won't regret it.

Rescue cat Turpin from Cats Protection, North Hertfordshire, Stevenage, needs a homeHello, my name is Turpin. I'm a handsome black and white male cat. I'm about 4 years old and am neutered. Sadly, I've been at the rescue for a while. I'm a friendly boy but just need a little bit of time to get to know you before I start truly showing my affection for you. Once we're pals I rather enjoy some fuss! I can be quite playful too, once I'm comfortable with you. I'm looking for experienced cat owners who will have a bit of patience to let me settle in and get comfortable. Also, if I'm frightened or under pressure I may lash out, so I need owners who can read the signs before this happens. I'd be better suited to a home without other pets, and without children. Although, I could possibly be homed with another cat. In the past I tend to hiss and growl at first but after a week or two I'm more friendly and playful, so a slow introduction to another cat might work out okay. Once I get to know you a bit you'll get plenty of affection from me! I like to rub against legs and headbut! Please get in touch for more information about me. You'll need to have a little patience and understanding, but I'm worth it!

Rescue Cat Jonty from National Animal Welfare Trust - Hertfordshire, Watford needs a homeHi there, my name’s Jonty and I’m a 6 year old, neutered, handsome chap with a sleek black coat. I’ve been looking for a home for a while now and thought I’d try on here because I’ve just not been spotted by my special person yet and you never know, they could be reading this right now! I’m a very intelligent boy, I’ve even managed to convince the staff here that I need a second breakfast! I love my food and treats, Whiskas treats are my favourite but will happily consider all brands! I love to explore but love getting some fuss and attention too, in fact I like all the attention to myself so I’d be best as the only pet in the home. I’m looking for a home with adults or families with children aged 14 or over. Once I’ve settled in, I’d love a garden to have a prowl in. If you think you might just be my special person - don’t delay, get in touch today!

Rescue cat Timmy from Cats Protection Welwyn, Hatfield and District, Hertfordshire, needs a homeHi, my name is Timmy and I am a handsome, neutered, tabby & white chap. I am 8 years old and looking for a new home. I am looking for a home with a garden for some exploring once I am settled and a home that will love me lots and lots. I suffer with itchy skin, due to an allergy, but it is well controlled with daily medication. I would like to find a quiet home where I can be the only cat as I really don’t want to share my humans; I could live with older children who would let me have peace and quiet when I want it.

Rescue cat Zara, from Cat & Kitten Rescue, needs a homeMeow! My name is Zara, a pretty black and white girl looking for a home where I can be the centre of attention as the only pet. I would prefer not to be in a noisy environment, so no young children either please - they can be a bit scary sometimes! I am just 18 months old so a new owner would have a massive impact on my life. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference and to be able to shape my development over the coming years. If you adopt me you will quickly discover that I have a lovely personality, enjoying cuddles and affection as well as exploring. I would need access to the outside so that I can burn off my extra energy and stay occupied if I get bored and am the ideal cat for humans seeking a loving, characterful and affectionate feline. I have been neutered, vaccinated and checked over by a vet, so am ready and waiting for any interested humans to come and visit me!
ZARA is at Cat & Kitten Rescue, Rehoming from bases in Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and West London.

Rescue cat Ffion from Cat and Kitten Rescue, Watford, needs a homeOh, hello there, my name is Ffion and I am a neutered, 18 month old, tortoiseshell girl. Well, now that all the important stuff is covered I can tell you my story. I came in with my kittens, I had given birth in a garden which wasn’t really ideal. I raised my kittens and although I was a little shy for a while, I have forged a bond with everyone here and really come into my own; everyone here says I am delightful; we all have fingers and paws crossed that I will find a home soon. I could fit into a family home; I haven’t had too much to do with other cats or dogs, so I am not sure about them; maybe I could be your only pet. I have my bags packed and am ready to go, all I need now is someone to fall in love with me. I have been vaccinated and chipped and am being fostered in Borehamwood. What are you waiting for, pick up the phone or email as soon as you can.
