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 Cats Nancy and Oliver from Stopford Cat Rescue, Stockport, need a homeHello, my name is Nancy and this is my gorgeous son Oliver. I’m two years old and mostly white with a bit of black, Oliver is four months old and is black and white, isn’t he a beauty! We were found in a box outside of a shoe shop, which was quite an ordeal as you can imagine, so I was very frightened when we first got taken into the shelter but the kind people here have really brought me out of my shell and I’m much more confident now. Oliver is very playful and loves his toys and both of us enjoy a good snuggle. We’re very attached to each other so we’re looking for a home together, do you think you can help with this? We will both be neutered before going to our new home.

Rescue cat Samson from Pet Rescue Adoption - Greater Manchester, Lancashire, needs a homeHello, my name is Samson. I'm a handsome and friendly boy looking for humans to call my own, could this be you? I'm only 4 years old but have had a tough start in life. I was living on an allotment with no-one to take care of me. I have adapted to life at the rescue and have been responding well to human interaction. I'm gaining trust in people and have already discovered lifes luxuries of a nice cosy knee to sit on, perfect for purring. I'm litter box trained, clean and am trained to scratch my scratching posts. I'll need some time to settle into a new home of course. I would like an indoor home please with no children and no pets, although a friendly placid dog might be okay. I think a human with some experience of cats would be best, someone who will understand that I will need a bit of time to settle in and build trust with my human. Also, someone who doesn't mind a big cat, as I'm over 6kg! Please get in touch for more information about me. I'm a good boy that would really appreciate a second chance in life! Oh and I'm neutered and flea/worm treated. I am FIV positive and there is some further information on that below. Please give the rescue a call about me as I'd really like to meet you. To find out about FIV: Visit Cat Chat’s FIV information page, or the FIV Owner's Club on our friendly forum.

Rescue cat Wendy, from Pet Rehome, Bolton, needs a homeHiya, I'm Wendy! Nice to meet you! They say black cats are unlucky, but I think you'd feel very lucky indeed after meeting me! You wouldn't know it by first impressions but I'm a young mum, and a good one too! I'm waiting for my furrever home after coming into care, expecting not one but four big bundles of joy! Aren't I lucky? Like any new mum I'm pretty worn out, and a bit on the slim side, but nothing a good meal won't fix! I'm such a doting parent that I'm actually still looking after my babies at the moment, but as soon as they fly the nest and I've been neutered I'll be ready to meet you. I'm a friendly, playful girl of only a year old, so I've got a lot of love to give and many many treats to consume (I hope!). I don't know about young children or dogs but I think I could live with a friendly kitty companion, so please get in touch if you think you could offer me the best start in life - you won't regret it, I promise!

Rescue cat Clyde from Cats Protection - Trafford, needs homeHi there friends, I'm Clyde and I'm a very special boy. The rescue people think I am extraordinarily good looking... with rogueish good looks. They say 'rogueish' as my ears have clearly taken a battering over the years. I'm a loveable, gentle and affectionate cat with people though. I came into care after living rough, with various people feeding me. They then took me to the vets when I injured my shoulder. I have been diagnosed with diabetes and am being treated for this - they think I'm about 8 years old. If this hasn't put you off and you feel you could let a chap like me into your heart, please do get in touch with the rescue people. I have been microchipped, neutered and vaccinated.

Rescue Cat Ellie, Lancashire Paws Cat Rescue, Bolton needs a homeOoh hello! I’m Ellie, who are you? I’m a pretty little, grey tabby girl who’s 1 year old and I’m looking for a home to call my own. I’m full of energy and love to play with anything and everything! I was mainly an indoor cat but since being in care, I have spent some time outside in a contained garden and I loved it so I’d love it if you had a garden. I don’t know about children or dogs as I haven’t met either of those but I could live with other cats. I didn’t get on with the cat I lived with before but I’ve met others since being in care and I can be loving towards them and can sometimes be a bit grumpy, but I’m just showing that although I’m small, I can’t be pushed around! I love human company and love getting cuddles and look forward to having a human or humans of my own! I’ve been neutered, microchipped, treated for fleas and worms and will be fully vaccinated before I go to my new home. I’m just waiting on that new home now - could it be with you?

Rescue cats Molly and Charlie, from Lancashire Paws Cat Rescue, Bolton, need a homeHello human! We are two cuddly companion cats in need of a loving home. I'm Molly, a pretty four-year old tabby lady, and the handsome ginger and white chap next to me is Charlie. He is three years old, and my bestest friend in all the world! We are both friendly little guys, although Charlie can be a bit cautious at first. We both like to play and love to cuddle! We've both had a rough start to life, living mostly outdoors without the love and care we need, but despite this we are incredibly loving and would settle into a new home with ease. We're so easy going, we reckon we'd also get on with a laid-back cat companion! A warm, comfy home where we're loved and fussed would be perfect, with a little cat door leading to the garden please? We are neutered, chipped and ready to go, so if you think you've got a space for both of us in your heart, please get in touch - you won't regret it!

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.
MR TIBBS is at Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool. Rehoming in the Blackpool and Fylde area.

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?

Rescue cat Puss from Prevent Unwanted Pets - Fylde Coast, Fleetwood, Lancashire, needs a homeHello there, my name is Puss; well that is what I am using now and I am looking for a long term foster home. Currently, I need monthly check ups at the vet; so the rescue will continue to cover my veterinary expenses and also cattery fees if my humans go on their holidays. I would like a quieter home, with no young children and with no other pets. I am due to be neutered shortly. If you think you could find a little room in your heart and your home just for me then I would be so, so happy. Please contact the rescue and they will tell you all about me and then we can meet up and see if we are destined to be best friends.

Rescue cat Badger, from Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... 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.
