Rescue cat Maisey from National Animal Welfare Trust Tameside, Manchester, needs a homeHello, my name is Maisey. I am around 10 years old, neutered, and my rescuer say I have a lovely purr-sonality! Life was good, until one day when the humans I loved and trusted moved away. I thought they were taking me with them, but they didn't. When my rescuers took me in, I was in a poor state. But thanks to their tender loving care, I am much better now. I am thoroughly enjoying having a warm, comfy bed and regular food. I am definitely not a fussy eater, just grateful for my regular meals. Sadly, due to my difficult life I have a touch of arthritis in one of my front legs, and a fracture in the other which is now thankfully on the mend. However, I will always have a limp. Please can you see past my impairment and take me home with you? I would love home where I have a smaller safe space, where there are no other cats, and especially a home where I will never be left behind again…

Rescue cat Oliver, from RSPCA Cheshire, Altrincham, Cheshire and Lancashire, needs a homeGood day to you, my name is Oliver. I am a handsome tabby cat, I have been neutered and am in need of a new home. Now, I am 14 years old, and while that might put some people off I am hoping to find that one special person, who can see past some silly numbers and give me the chance at a loving home. I have had rather a lot of upheaval lately, I came into rescue and then lost my companion cat, so this chap is after some stability. I could happily live with children in a family and with other cats too. I am a very friendly lap cat, with a loud purr, so you will know when I am content. I have had a full MOT at the vets and I am well, I lost a few teeth but that didn’t even slow me down! The only think I ask is that you love me and possibly have a stash of catnip toys for me to have a mad half hour with because I do love to play.

Rescue cat Alfie, from RSPCA Cheshire, Altrincham, Cheshire and Lancashire, needs a homeHi there, my name is Alfie and I am an 8 year old, neutered, black and white chap. I was in a loving home, but my human is too ill to look after me now; so I am here and hoping that someone will think I am just the cat for them. I suppose that people think 8 is old, but age is nothing to a cat. I do love a good snuggle and if you rub my head I will give you my best loud and rumbly purr. I have been outside before but I would also be happy as an indoor cat if that is what you are looking for. All I really want is your company; I am happy to live in a family home (all the more snuggles and head rubs for me!) I would be happy in any home as long as I am loved; if you are looking for a new companion and a lap warmer, then look no further because I am the cat for you, purr-lease just make that call?

princess neutering4paws wiganHello, my name is Princess.  I'm a lovely, neutered, short haired, calico tortoiseshell and white girl of two years old, and I'm looking for my palace!  I'm initially quite shy with new people and places, but having settled into rescue I'm now showing what a friendly and fuss-loving youngster I really am.  A quiet home with access to a safe garden will suit me perfectly; I could share a home with another friendly cat and sensible older children, but no dogs please!  I have been spayed.  A throne and tiara are not essential requirements, but I will blossom in a caring environment with kind humans who will give me the time and understanding I need to regain my confidence and become a contented and pampered pusscat.  Please get in touch!

Rescue cat Mr Darcy from Cat Homing and Rescue, Warrington, needs a new homeHello there, my name is Mr Darcy, because I am so charming and handsome of course! I am around 3 years old and have been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. I came in to the rescue after I was found straying; I am a loveable and affectionate chap, who is happy to live with children (5+); I may be able to live with other cats but definitely would like a home with no dogs. I had a check up with the vet and am in excellent health and I think it must be my turn to find a loving family soon. If you have a safe garden that I could explore that would be fantastic.

Rescue cat Badger, from Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool needs a homeHi 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.
BADGER is at Furry Tails Feline Welfare, Blackpool. Rehoming in Lancashire.

Rescue Cats Best Pals from Cats Protection - Bolton & Radcliffe, Bolton needs a homeHello! We’re a lovely pair of around 18 month old girls who are hoping we can find a special, forever home. We are black and tabby and have been neutered. We were discovered by a lovely family, our Mum was very young too not much more than a kitten herself. The kind family looked after us until we were taken into rescue, they’ve adopted our Mum now and we hope that we can find as kind and lovely a family as she did! We’re full of energy and into everything but one of us is a bit more timid than the other, it’s just that she’s nervous and if we can find a loving home with someone who’s experienced with cats, she’ll come out of her shell and blossom into a loving, happy cat. We’re not sure yet about sharing our home with other cats or dogs and haven’t met children yet. Do you think you could help us?
