Ed & Dory

Rescue cats Ed & Dory from Rescue Kitties, Manchester, Lancashire, need a homeGood day, I am Ed, I am the blacker of the two in the picture and this is my sister, Dory. We are 10 months old and looking for a home together as we are best friends as well as siblings. We both had cat flu as youngsters and have Feline Calicivirus, there is more information at the end of this about it. We are busy cats, we like to explore and play, I especially like hiding around corners and jumping on Dory as she goes past. I am also a secret cuddler, not a lapcat but can often be found next to you when you wake up! Dory and I love to snuggle up and sleep together when we wear each other out. Dory is an affectionate girl and will give headbumps, she loves feather toys and chasing things but the thing she loves most is her food, she is great at hunting anything made with butter and tries to have a good sniff. We can offer you endless love and plenty of giggles if you can offer us a loving home, sound like a good deal doesn't it. We are both neutered and are looking for an indoor home, as the only cats. We could share with children, even better if they would like to play with us.

Shadow & Missy

Rescue cats Shadow and Missy, at Carla Lane Animals In Need, Liverpool, need a new homeHello, my name is Shadow. I’m a beautiful, playful two year old lady with a black coat, and I’m looking for a permanent home with my best friend Missy whom I met here in rescue. We both have similar stories and have formed such a close bond that we’d love to stay together. We are semi-feral cats who have relied on the kindness of strangers for food, and both of us had litters of kittens before being rescued. We are both now spayed and looking forward to a less stressful life in a rural or outdoor home, where we’ll be given regular meals and warm, safe places to sleep. Our new human carer will be experienced with cats who’ve had limited contact with people and will understand that we won’t become lap cats, but have the potential to form a trusting bond over time. A home without children will suit us best, but we could live alongside other semi-feral cats. We are lovely youngsters who deserve the chance of a contented future after our tough starts - do you think that you could offer us both the forever home we’re looking for?

Donna and Zelda

Rescue Cats Donna and Zelda from Rescue Kitties, Greater Manchester, need a homeHello, my name's Zelda, and I'm here with my friend Donna. We're both lovely black and white, neutered, 7 year old ladies and we're looking for a home together. We were once long-term residents of a feral colony, riddled with disease and terrified of humans. Now we are friendly, healthy ladies! I do have a heart murmur but the vet isn't too concerned about it. While Donna is quite timid (food is a good way to win her over!), I'm very affectionate. I will headbutt you for attention, and I love to be brushed and stroked. We would like a quiet, dog-free house with access to outdoors, where we can have time and patience to settle in.

Ziggy

Rescue cat Ziggy from Stopford Cat Rescue, Stockport, needs homeHi lovely people! I'm Ziggy and I'm a sweet, friendly boy of about 3 years old. I’m very cuddly and love being groomed. I’m quite lively at times and love to run around - people always seem to be laughing when I'm playing - I'm really not sure why! I've been a house cat but I would love a safe outside space to explore. I’m chipped and up to date with vet visits and neutered, I do have some health problems which are under control - the rescue people will bring you up to speed. I am also a gorgeous boy as you can see from my picture! Please say you will have a think about offering me a home. The rescue people will be happy to introduce us so we can both see what we think. (PS you will fall in love!)

Missy

Rescue cat Missy from Stopford Cat Rescue, Stockport, Cheshire, Lancashire, needs a homeHello everyone, my name is Missy and as you can see I am a gorgeous black ad white girl, with fabulous whiskers. I am 4 years old, neutered and am waiting for my new person. I hadn't had a great history and needed time to settle into life at the rescue and start regaining my confidence; I am much better now and am ready to get my happy ever after. I have my paws crossed that I will be able to find an experienced cat home, who will understand and show me love and patience. I could live happily with older, sensible children; but would prefer to be the only pet.

Cinders & Sparkle

Rescue cats Cinders & Sparkle from Stopford Cat Rescue, Stockport, Cheshire, Lancashire, needs a homeGood day, we are Cinders, on the left, and Sparkle on the right. We are sisters looking for a home together; we are 6 years old and neutered. I am more confident that Sparkle; I will lay on the floor and let you stroke me and will cuddle your hand when I don't want you to stop. Sparkle likes to be brushed and will sit on your knee for that. We are happy with adult company but children are too much and we hide, so no young children is a must for us to be content. We are sociable with other cats, so could share our home given proper introductions, or we would be just as happy to just have each other. We would love it if you had a safe outdoor space for us to explore. If you think you could fall in love with us, do get in touch and see if we could be a match.

Timmy

Rescue Cat Timmy from Lancashire Paws Cat Rescue, Bolton, needs a homeHi! My name's Timmy. I'm a tabby boy who was found living on the streets in a pretty bad way. It seems I'd had a fight with another stray tom as I had a small chunk of flesh hanging from my face. But that wound as been treated and my true handsome self shines through! I do love my food, as I was used to scavenging for scraps. In fact I could do with losing a bit of weight now, but my appetite should settle down as I get used to home comforts. I'm a lovely laid-back boy - gentle, loving and easy going. I'm about three years old and I've been vet-checked, neutered and vaccinated. I would not like to live with other cats or with dogs.

Lola

Rescue cat Lola from ICR (Independent Cat Rescue), Manchester, Lancashire, needs a homeHello, my name is Lola. I am a beautiful 5 year old neutered lass. I arrived when my previous home acquired a dog. I am a friendly girl and a lap cat, who is in need of a new snuggle buddy. I have developed my confidence while here and to be honest everyone loves me, alas I do not like sharing with the other cats. I could share my forever home with cat savvy, older children and could manage to share with one other cat who is laid back, definitely no dogs for me though. I am happy as an indoor cat, I may be interested in the outside if you have a secure space for me but I am quite content inside at the rescue. Please get in touch with the rescue if you have fallen in love and could offer me the home of my dreams; I will be chipped, health checked and vaccinated before leaving.

Archie & Rafferty

Rescue Cats Archie & Rafferty, Bentham & District Pet Rescue, High Bentham needs a homeHello, we’re a couple of friends called Archie and Rafferty, sadly our previous owner died and we’re looking for a new home where we’ll be just as loved and spoiled. Archie, he’s the ginger and white one, is 7 years old, neutered and is really missing his home comforts. He’s really friendly, he’s a bit shy until he gets to know you but it doesn’t take him long. I’m the black and white guy, my name’s Rafferty and I’m 10 years old and I’ve also been neutered. I’m super friendly too, but like Archie, am just a bit shy until I get to know you. We’re a lovely pair of boys and would like to go to a new home together but if we have to be separated, then we could go to homes separately. We’re not sure about living with children or dogs but are okay living with other cats. We’d also love a garden to have a sunbathe and stroll around in. Do you think you might be able to help us out with a loving new home? We’d be your friends for life if you could help us!

Woody

Rescue cat Woody from Stopford Cat Rescue, Stockport, Cheshire, Lancashire, needs a homeHi, Woody here; I am around 2 years old, am neutered and am now ready to find my fresh start. I arrived as an un-neutered tom with plenty of battle injuries, I had an eye infection and was unloved. Thanks to the treatment and attention I have had, I am now healthy and ready to start over. I am a lovely gentle cat, I am attentive and affectionate, all I need is someone to show that to who I can call my own. I would love it if you had a garden for sunny days, when I am fully settled; aside from that all I need is your love, so I have my paws crossed that it won't be long before you come to find me.

Dotty

Rescue cat Dotty from Bentham & District Pet Rescue, High Bentham, Cumbria, Lancashire, North Yorkshire, needs a homeHello everyone, my name is Dotty. I am a 7ish year old, neutered girl who arrived as a stray, no-one knows my background but I have become a friendly lass, who loves company but also has a very independent streak and does things in my own good time. I would love a home with a garden to explore, once I am settled; I would prefer to be the only pet in the home and I am not entirely sure about sharing with children. Some may look at the colour of my coat, or my age and pass me by, so I am hoping that my purr-fect person sees this and gets in touch to offer me my forever home.

Chase, Hazel & Nibbler

Rescue cats Chase, Hazel & Nibbler, at Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool, need a new homeHello, I’m Hazel, the gorgeous short-haired black feline in the photo (or at least one of them!), and I’m honorary sister, and best buddy, to brothers Chase and Nibbler who I met here in rescue. We’ve become known as the three musketeers, and as such we’re looking for a fabulous permanent home in which we can stay together. We’re all young neutered cats, and we all have the potential to become loving, contented furry companions in a calm and peaceful home - ideally one with no other pets or small children. At the moment we’re a very nervous trio, although we tend to forget our fears and show our true friendly natures at mealtimes, which shows that given lots of patience and understanding - and plenty of treats! - in our new home we’ll be able to gradually relax and gain confidence. If you could offer us the time and the love that we need to help us overcome our fears, you’ll be rewarded three times over. Why not get in touch?
CHASE, HAZEL & NIBBLER are at Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool. Rehoming in the Blackpool and Fylde area.

Rosie

Rescue cat Rosie from Blackpool Nine Lives Cat Rescue, Blackpool, Lancashire, needs a homeI've been waiting over 2 years... Please pick me! Hello there, my name is Rosie. I was 5 years old in June and have been waiting for my forever person for over 2 years already, so I am giving this whole internet thingy a chance to help me. I am an active girl with lots and lots of energy, who loves attention and stimulation; I love to play with my toys and they help me from becoming over stimulated when I am being stroked. I am looking for a home with an enclosed garden or lots of space well away from roads, as I have no road sense. Alternatively a small holding or livery yard, where I can roam safely but have the chance to be inside if I choose and will always have a safe place to lay my head. When I am inside I love to have a tall cat tree to climb and lay in and plenty of toys to play with.  I would also prefer to be the only pet and no children, so that I can have all the attention I crave. I am neutered and ready to find my new best friend and companion, who will understand, work with me and be calm & patient when I get excited. I justhave my paws crossed that someone will fall in love with me; can I ask a favour, if you care not the one for me, could you share my story so that I don't have to wait too much longer?
