Rescue cat Marco from Cats Protection - North Hertfordshire, Stevenage, needs homeHi there friends, I'm Marco and I'm a handsome tabby and white boy of about 2 years old. I've lived rough on the streets and this has made me wary and a bit protective of myself. Deep down I want to learn to trust again, I can be friendly and I will let you rub my head. However, I can't be picked up and I can react strongly when startled. I really need an experienced owner to bring me round and restore my faith in the world! Therefore I'm best off in an adult home without other pets. Do you think you could have the patience and kindness to help me be a loved companion? I'll just be here waiting if you decide 'yes'.

Rescue cat Belle, at Cats Protection, North Hertfordshire, Stevenage, needs a new homeHello, my name is Belle. I’m a beautiful, spayed, black and white lady of five years old, and I’m in search of a special forever home. I need a peaceful indoor-only home, without other pets, where I can relax and enjoy being the only feline resident. I’d make a suitable companion for a single human or an older family; like many cats I’m not always in the mood to be picked up so a home without young children will suit me best! I will thrive in a caring, calm and understanding home, and really deserve a chance to settle down and enjoy being a pampered pet. If you think that you may be able to offer me the permanent home I’m longing for, then please get in touch.

Rescue cat Sam, from National Animal Welfare Trust - Buckinghamshire (HULA), Milton Keynes, needs a homeHi there, my name is Sam. How do you do? I am a distinguished, black and white 11 year old boy looking for a new indoor home. I haven't had much luck lately, and hoping my appeal for a new indoor home will reach a special human. I have been in and out of care a fair few times in my life, so I'd really like somewhere permanent to call home and settle down in. I'm a older lad, so will need some help with grooming - got to keep this bib nice and white.  I have FIV, my condition has meant I've had to have all of my teeth removed, so I'm a bit gummy, but this doesn't stop me eating - if anything, I like the challenge! I don't like any competition for food or treats though, so I'd prefer to be the only pet in a calm, adults-only home. Despite my sad past, I still like the company of humans, and once I've settled I'll be happy to receive some fuss and cuddles from you - just on my own terms. If you think you can offer me a comfortable retirement, please do get in touch - I'm neutered and ready to go.

Rescue cat Benny from Battersea at Old Windsor, Windsor, needs a homeWell hello there, I’m Benny, so pleased to make your acquaintance. I’m currently on the look out for my forever home, if you would be so kind as to let me tell you a little bit about myself and the home that I’m looking for. I’m a ten year old black and white male. As the folks at the rescue will tell you, I’m a sweet and sociable chap yet a little sensitive so I’m looking for a quiet home to settle into and increase my confidence. In time I will reward your patience with plenty of love and affection. I generally like to potter around the house but I do enjoy having access to a garden so that I can have a leisurely stroll and sunbathe in the warmer months. I would happily live with older children but I would prefer to be your only pet. Of course I have been neutered and whatnot. So If you think you might be able to offer me the home that I’m looking for then come and have a chinwag with the folks at the rescue and, if everything’s tickety-boo, I’ll be there with bell’s on!

Rescue cats Molly & Mae, from RSPCA Stort Valley, Harlow, Essex, need a homeHiya, nice to meet you! We are Molly and Mae, a pair of pretty neutered girlies looking for a new home together! We're only four months old and very shy, so this is a fantastic chance for someone to make a lasting positive impact on our lives. A little patience, love and affection will go a long way to helping us become happy, friendly kitties in the future! When you first meet us we'll be a bit nervous of you, but in a quiet home it won't be long before we grow in confidence. Like most kitties our age, we love to play and will love to be spoilt with lots of toys and games! Once we're old enough, we like the sound of playing outside - so a safe garden with a little cat door for us would be perfect. In the future we might be happy to live with other pets or children, but it might be nice if we had you all to ourselves at first, while we get our bearings! If you think you've got a space in your heart and home, please get in touch - we can't wait to meet you!

Rescue Cat Tipsy from Cat & Kitten Rescue, Watford, needs a homeHi there, my name is Tipsy. I was unfortunately evicted when my human moved to a new house. This initially made me a tad grumpy, however, I quickly got over that and I’m now “the perfect cat” as my fosterer will happily tell you! I’m a one year old ginger lad (bit of a looker as you can see!) on the lookout for a home with access to outdoors. I want to be your only pet please and don’t really fancy living with children. Of course I come with all of the usuals: neutered, vet-checked, microchipped, worm and flea treated, fully vaccinated and also prescription products and four weeks of pet insurance. Come meet me at my foster home in Hemel Hempstead and you can see just how lovely I am!

Rescue cat Andre from Cats Protection - Welwyn, Hatfield & District, Welwyn, Hertfordshire, needs a homeHi there, my name is Andre. As you can see from my photo, I am a handsome, shiny, black boy. I am only 2 years old, and did have a home. Unfortunately I am now looking for a new, forever home, because I was left behind by my owners, who didn't love me enough to take me with them. They didn't neuter me either, so I am a little shy of people I don't know, and it will take a bit of time to get to know, and trust a new owner. Since I have been in rescue I have been neutered, so I am all ready to go to my new home now. I would like one with a garden, so I have access to outdoors. Can you offer me the type of home I am looking for, and the love I need?

Rescue cat Dom from Cats Protection - Welwyn, Hatfield & District, Welwyn, Hertfordshire, needs a homeHello there, my name is Dom and I am very friendly and affectionate. I am around 4 years old, white and black and have been neutered. I love to play and would probably be happy to play all day if I could! I would be happy in a home with children but I would prefer not to share you with any dogs. I am a sweet friendly chap who loves to cuddle and plenty of fusses. I can be very energetic and would really appreciate a garden to play in and enjoy, after an appropriate settling in period. If you think you could offer me a spot in your heart and home purr-lease get in touch.
