Rescue cat Oscar, at RSPCA Cheshire, Altrincham, needs a new homeHello, my name is Oscar. I’m a handsome six year old neutered boy with a short haired tabby and white coat. I’m friendly, super-cuddly and great company, so I’m looking for a home where I won’t have to share the human attention with any other pets! A home without young children will suit me best, though older sensible children should be fine. My favourite things are playing with my catnip toys and then having a nice long snooze… or two… preferably on a warm comfy lap. I’m vaccinated and microchipped, and ready to begin a fabulous life of cuddles, snuggles and games in my new permanent home - so why not come and meet me?

Rescue Cats Molly & Charlie, Lancashire Paws Cat Rescue, Bury  needs a homeHello, I’m Molly, a beautiful tabby girl of about 4 years of age and I’m here with my very good friend Charlie to see if we can find a home to call our own. I met 3 year old Charlie, the handsome ginger and white guy you see next to me, at the rescue and we became firm friends. We’re both very gentle, friendly and affectionate although, Charlie is a bit more cautious when he meets you initially. We think that we’re ready to be loved and spoiled in a home of our own. If you felt you couldn’t take both of us, we could be separated but we’re hoping you’ll have room for us both. We’re not sure about living with children or dogs but could certainly live with other cats. We’ve both been neutered and depending when our special people find us, will have started on our vaccination course and will be microchipped and treated for fleas and worms. We’re just waiting for you to fall in love and phone or email the rescue - please?

Rescue cat Sir James from Cats Guidance Rescue, Wigan, Bolton, Lancashire, needs a homeHello, my name is Sir James and I am a very handsome ginger, neutered lad. I am 11 years young and am in need of a new home. Now, you may be asking yourself why no-one has fallen in love with me yet and I don't really know - because I am amazing; I have plenty or purr-sonality, but I have a sneaking suspicion that people are worried because I have diabetes. It is controlled easily with 2 injections a day and that is really easy once you know how and you will be trained up; if you continue to use the vet I am with currently you will only be charged charity rate for my insulin and I need a blood test every 3 to 6 months, again at a reduced rate if you stay with my vet; and I just eat normal food, I like chicken the most but whiskers and felix come in a close second. Aside from that all I want is lots of love, some cool toys (I do love a fiddle stick) and somewhere to lay my head. If you might be just ready to fall in love with me, then get in touch and the rescue will help convince you. Visit our Feline Diabetes page for more information about diabetic cats

Rescue cat Casper from RSPCA - Cheshire, Altrincham, Cheshire & Lancashire, needs a homeHi there, my name is Casper and as you can see I am a stunning pure white lad. I am 2 years old and am neutered too. I find myself in need of a new place to lay my head; whilst the rescue is great I would prefer a home with no other pets and no children so that I can live in peace with my very own human. I am an anxious kitty and will need an understanding person, who will give me patience and time to come round; once I do though, you will be rewarded greatly when I show you my loving and playful side. I am hoping that I can become your favourite companion; I like to follow people around the house, just to make sure that I know where you are; I also like stalking the birds through the window and I like watching nature documentaries too. If you are a nature lover and would like someone to settle down with and watch all the programmes, then get in touch because we could very well be made for each other.

Rescue cat Willow from Cats Protection Preston, Lancashire, needs a homeHi there, my name is Willow and as you can see I am a gorgeous black and white lass. I am around a year old and have been neutered too. I find myself in need of a new home; I was adopted previously but circumstances changed and I have had to come back to the shelter and try again, I am hoping this internet thingy might hep me find my new hooman. I am a sweet lass and can be a little timid until I get to know you, but as soon as I get over my shyness I love to be brushed and stroked and fussed over - you know, given all the love! I could live with other cats and would prefer no young children in my forever home; I would also like the chance to go outside when I am fully settled in.

Rescue cat Merlin from Cats Protection Preston, Lancashire, needs a homeGood morrow to you, my name is Merlin and as you can see I am a very handsome, black and white lad. I am 8 years young and have been neutered. I find myself in need of a table under which I can lay my paws. I was a little timid when I first arrived, after being a stray for a while, my trust in humans wasn't good, but I have had lots of TLC and now I am more confident and think I am ready to find my home. I am looking for a home with no other pets as I do like all the attention focussed on me; I would also prefer not to live with young human type people, teenagers who will not expect anything of me would be ok. I would also love a garden for a little explore once I am fully settled. If you are looking for a little magic in your life then pick up that phone.. or email, I have people to reply to either!

Rescue cat Officer Dribble, at Stopford Cat Rescue, Stockport, needs a new homeHello, my name is Officer Dribble (yes, really!) and I’m in search of a wonderful permanent home. I’m six years old, with a short-haired black and white coat, and I came into rescue as a uncared-for garden cat, considerably the worse for wear. My beauty was not enhanced by my poorly eye, scabs galore and runny nose (hence my name) - but after some TLC, including neutering and vaccination, I have thoroughly bounced back. Despite my tough times I’m proving to be a talkative, attention-loving boy with a playful nature and a good line in affectionate head bumps. I may not be a lap cat but my fosterer thinks that I will continue to mellow in a caring home where I can feel safe and relaxed (and have a good supply of my favourite treats). If you can see beyond the battle scars and offer a forever home to a lovely and most deserving fellow, then please get in touch!

Rescue cat Badger, from Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool needs a homeI've been waiting over 5 years... Please pick me! Hi there, my name is Badger and as you can see I am a very handsome black and white cat. I have been at the rescue for quite a while now; unfortunately I am a shy boy which makes meeting new potential humans a bit tricky, so I thought I would give this internet thingy a try! I am hoping to find a very patient human, who will understand and give me all the time I need to begin to trust. That being said, I do love a good food treat, so maybe you could use them to help me build my confidence. I have been neutered and would like a little garden for exploring purposes once I am settled in. If you think you could be my purr-fect human please do get in touch.

Rescue cat Solomon from Bentham and District Pet Rescue, High Bentham, Cumbria, needs a homeWhy hello there! I am the wise cat Solomon, having reigned so far for 13 prosperous years. I am a handsome black chap, who has spent a long period in exile living outside and braving the elements. Thankfully, a kind human fed me to keep me going, but all that time I spent wishing for a nice warm home and a comfy bed to call my own. My experiences have left me a bit timid around other cats, so I would prefer to find a place all to myself, where I can be doted on and given the affection I need. As I have become accustomed to the outside, I would like access to a garden in my new home, but most of all I just want a quiet place to settle down. I have been neutered, chipped and vaccinated, so am ready and waiting to find the right home!

Rescue cat Bobby from Bentham & District Pet Rescue, High Bentham, needs a home Hello, my name is Bobby. I'm a handsome black cat looking for a loving home. I'm about 1 year old and am neutered. I came into the rescue as a stray and am still a bit shy around people, although I am improving every day. I would love to find a nice peaceful home to live, with someone who would be happy to spend a bit of time helping to bring me out of me shell. I'd love a quiet and cosy home to settle into, or maybe a safe warm cosy bed in an outbuilding, with food and support provided by loving humans of my own. The rescue don't know about my experience with dogs or children, but I get on well with other cats, so maybe some feline company might be nice...like maybe my good friend Dotty. Please get in touch for more information about me, and I hope to meet you soon!

Rescue cats Polo and Phoebe, at Stopford Cat Rescue, Stockport, need a new homeHello, our names are Polo and Phoebe. We’re brother and sister, about five years old, and both of us have beautiful short haired tabby and white coats. We are looking for a quiet, caring home in which we can stay together; and we need a new human friend who is experienced with shy cats as we’ll be anxious when we first meet you. Given plenty of time and understanding in a calm environment we’ll be able to relax and get to know you, and enjoy being much-loved members of the family. We’d like a home without young children or scary dogs, and once we’ve fully settled in we’d enjoy access to a safe garden. We have both been neutered. If you think that you might be able to offer us both the wonderful permanent home we deserve, then please get in touch!

Rescue cat Mr Tibbs, from Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool, needs a homeHello! My name is Mr Tibbs... I'm the one with the bright white bib! But there is far more to me than that. I'm a fetching black and white, neutered boy who has been patiently waiting for a new owner to come and whisk me away to pastures new. I can be a little slow to get used to new people and new environments, so would best suit a patient household without too much noise, but I do have experience of mingling with other cats in my past, who I've found to be not so bad once I got to know them! As long as I am given the time I need to settle in, coming out of my shell around new people and other cats won't be a problem. What I want most of all is a loving home where I can enjoy myself, lounge around in the sun and generally enjoy all the things that any self-respecting cat should be able to in life. If you'd like a new addition to your family while making a real difference to a cat's life, please do come to visit me.

Rescue cat Charlotte, Anne & Bramwell from Stockport Cats Protection, Cheshire, need a homeHello from Charlotte, Anne and Branwell! We’re an 8 month old, neutered trio of sisters and brother and we’re really hoping that we can find our forever home where we can be together if possible. We were quite poorly when we came in to care and have gone through a lot together which has meant that we have formed a real special bond. I’m Anne and I’m black and white with an eye patch and a black nose, I’m very confident and very affectionate. Charlotte’s the littlest and is also black and white, she has such a sweet face and as a result gets away with being cheeky but also likes to curl up for a snooze with one or both of her siblings in your lap and then there’s Branwell, he looks exactly the same as Charlotte, slightly bigger and with a black spot on his nose. He’s such a floppy, cuddly boy who loves attention, he likes being picked up and will doze off on your knee or crook of your arm if given the chance! As you can see, we’re an adorable trio who will entertain you as we wrestle each other and play with each other’s tail. We’d love a home with no other pets but would be fine with older children. We’d love a garden to play in and are also hoping for lots of company and attention. We know it’s a big ask, but do you think you might be our special someone who will find a space in their home for all three of us?
