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 cats Bella & Oscar from Cats Protection Stockport, Cheshire, Lancashire, need a homeHi there, we are Bella & Oscar, siblings and are now 15 months old; oh and we have been neutered too. We have been patiently waiting for someone to pick us for a while now but alas, we have been passed by for younger kittens and cats. Bella loves a fuss and a stroke and likes to be at the window to watch the world go by, and I love to play and do love a good game of hide and seek, well not seek, more jumping out from my hidey spot; it is a fab game and I m sure you will love it too. We are looking for a home where we can be the only cats; we could happily live with older children and would like a safe garden if possible. If you think we could be the purr-fect cats for you, do get in touch.

Rescue cat Jess, at Lancashire Paws Cat Rescue, Bolton, needs a new homeHello, my name is Jess. I’m a beautiful tabby and white lady of about six years old. Through no fault of my own I’ve been shipped from pillar to post many times, and I’m longing to find a settled home life and a devoted human friend of my own. I’m spayed and healthy, and have such a delightful nature that given some time and patience whilst I find my feet I’ll be a wonderful furry companion in my forever home. I’m affectionate and laid back, with a playful and mischievous side which can sometimes take the form of gentle little nips! I’m sociable with other cats so could share a home with another friendly feline. A home without young children will probably suit me best. If you’re able to offer a permanent loving home to a quirky sweetheart who really deserves the chance of a wonderful life, then please get in touch soon!

Rescue Cat Stubsy, Lancashire Paws Cat Rescue, Bolton needs a homeHello, my name’s Stubsy and I’m a 6 year old, tabby boy looking for a home and someone to call my own. I was found as a stray and after being neutered, was all set to be released back where I was found but I’d had a bad start and had been poorly nourished and the staff reckoned I could do with some tlc and feeding up. My name comes from my tail being a bit stubby and short probably due to being under nourished while growing up. Anyway, once I get to know you, I love being around humans and adore attention. I love being stroked and don’t mind being picked up. The staff here are lovely and spend time with me when they can, but I’d love having a person or a family of my own who will give me all the attention I’m missing. I’d rather be your only cat and I’m not sure about dogs. I’m not sure about living with children but you can always have a chat with the people here about that. I’ve been neutered and will be microchipped, vaccinated and treated for worms and fleas. I’m really hoping that somewhere out there is a kind and understanding person or family who can offer me the loving, forever home I’m looking for!

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?
