Rescue Cat Rufus from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, Tyne and Wear, needs a homeI've been waiting over 3 years... Please pick me! Hi, I'm Rufus. I'm 3 years old, neutered, and came to Willows as a feral at 6 weeks old. Most feral kittens, if caught early enough, can turn into normal house cats. But I am still terrified of most things. Even though I have been brought up in a busy house, if anyone comes to visit I run upstairs to hide. I’ve learnt to trust my foster humans and love my strokes first thing on a morning, but I’m still a very independent soul. It would take a very very patient human to build up my trust. Food is the way to my heart and I may sneak a chip or sausage off your plate when you're eating. I would like to live indoors and would not like to live with children, dogs, or other cats.
RUFUS is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Co.Durham, Northumberland & Tyne & Wear. To make an enquiry, please call: 07719 605 383 or 07989 540 342 or 07595 222 307, and please mention you saw Rufus on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Toby from New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, needs a homeI've been waiting almost 2 years... Please pick me! Hello, my name’s Toby and I’m a big, 7 year old, ginger and white chap, hoping someone will be kind enough to offer me a loving home. When I came into the rescue as a stray I had a facial injury, which soon healed, and now just adds to my rugged good looks! I have kidney disease so need to be on a special diet. I’ve been neutered and would like to be an indoor only cat please. I need a little time to get to know new people but once I do, I’m really friendly. I’m looking for a home with no children please. I do have a preference for ladies, so could I be your ideal man? If you could find it in your heart to offer me some love and a calm home, you won't regret it. Please check out my video below!

Rescue cats Harley and Cashew, at Canny Cats Rescue, Newcastle, need a new homeHello, my name is Harley. I’m a gorgeous tortoiseshell girl of nine months old, and I’m looking for a terrific forever home with my beautiful ginger coated half-sister, Cashew, who’s about a week younger than me. I like to think I’m in charge, but we’re really great friends and want to stay together; therefore we need a fairly quiet home as Cashew tends to feel shy with new people. Once she learns to trust you she adores head rubs and snuggling on a warm lap. I’m confident, attention-loving and mischievous; my favourite game with humans is to play fetch with my toy mouse - regardless of whatever else you’re doing at the time! As I’m bouncing with energy I’d like to have access to a safe garden once we’ve settled in to our lovely new home. We’ve both been spayed. Could you offer us both the caring permanent home we’re searching for?
HARLEY & CASHEW are at Canny Cats Rescue, Newcastle. Rehoming in Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.
