Phoebe

Rescue cat Phoebe, at New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead, needs a new homeHello, my name is Phoebe. I'm a beautiful tabby and white haired lady in search of a special loving home. I've been in rescue for about three years after being found in poor condition in a home with 25 other un-neutered cats. My fosterers have given me lots of TLC and patient understanding, and I'm looking for a quiet forever home with cat-lovers who'll help me to continue building up my confidence. At present I'm still unsure about being touched, and I may well never become a lap cat, but given a peaceful, experienced home where I can have interaction on my own terms I should thrive. I'm looking for an indoor-only home (or a house with a secure catio attached); I could live alongside other cats. I have been spayed. If you think that you could offer me a loving permanent home, plus the time to settle in at my own pace, then please do get in touch.

Martha & Ebony

Rescue cats Martha & Ebony from New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead. Northumberland, Gateshead, Newcastle, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, need a homeGood day to you; we are Martha and Ebony. I was found with my kitten living in the back lane of some terraced houses and Ebony was found in a dark country lane wandering and looking for food. We became close pals at the rescue and would now like to stay together. We are both neutered and and would like to find an indoor home; we could share with other cats and even dogs, but don't have any experience of children and given that we aren't keen on being touched, an adult home would be the best. I enjoy watching tv or cat games and will sit near you as long as you don't try to touch me; Ebony also sits nearby in the room but like me doesn't like to be touched. The hope is that in the right home, we might become more social; but you need to be aware that we may only ever sit nearby and be prepared for that. If you can offer us room in your home and heart or would like more information, please get in touch.

Reese

Rescue cat Reese from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, needs a homeGood day to you; my name is Reese. I came in with a few other cats when we were found in a feral colony, I have been neutered and think that I could do this warm home lark, with people who love me just as I am. I am a handsome tabby and white boy, who would love to find a new home with another cat, if you had a fab feline who could teach me the ways of the housecat or could see your way to adopting one of my friends too. I have a sweet nature and am slowly showing it to my carers here, in the right home and with plenty of patience who knows how far I will go. I would need to be an indoor cat until we are fully bonded and then would like a little potter in a safe space if you have one, in the meantime a sunny and warm spot to watch the world go by would be just perfect. Please get in touch if you think i could be the one for you.

Harper

Rescue cat Harper, at Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, needs a new homeHello, my name is Harper. I'm a very handsome grey and white chap who came into rescue, along with a number of other cats, from a feral colony. Despite such a huge change in my circumstances I've begun to understand that the humans around me tend to bring me good things (like my dinner) and aren't as scary as I first thought. I'm a sweet natured boy who needs an experienced and patient human friend who can offer me not only a caring permanent home, but all the time and understanding I'll need as I continue to gain confidence at my own pace. I love the company of other cats and am looking for a home to share with at least one other friendly feline. I'll need to be kept indoors until I've fully bonded with my new owner, but eventually I'd enjoy the opportunity to spend time sunning myself in a safe outdoor space too. I have been neutered. If you think that you could offer me the loving forever home I deserve, please get in touch.

Morgan

Rescue cat Morgan from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, needs a homeHello there, my name is Morgan and I am on the hunt for a fabled forever home. I was rescued from a feral colony and have come to enjoy the lovely things that humans come armed with to try and become my friend. I am showing my sweet nature now and think that I am ready to find my people. I would be best suited to a home with another cat, be that one of my friends from the rescue or an existing cat, who can show me that people can be fun. I am looking for an indoor home at first until I have fully bonded with my guardian; then I would like the chance to find a sunny spot for napping in a safe space. Any potential guardians out there will need to be patient, it will take time and some lovely treats for me to get to know and love you. If you think that I could be the cat for you please get in touch and find out more about me.

Skye

Rescue cat Skye from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, needs a homeHello, my name is Skye; I would like to tell you all about me in the hope that I find my forever home. I was picked up as part of a feral colony but have become more used to people and I quite like the lovely things I get when they are nearby. I am a sweet natured lass who just needs someone to take a chance and work with me to help me blossom. I love the other cats here and think if you already had a cat I would be a great feline friend given proper introductions, if not and you are in a position to take on two cats, any of my friends from the rescue would be happy to have a forever home too. I will need to be an indoor cat until I am fully comfortable and settled in; I have enjoyed time in the sunny catio here; in fact, a forever home with a catio would be like a lottery win for me! I have been neutered and am ready to meet you; please say you will give it plenty of thought.

Sirius

Rescue cat Sirius from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, needs a homeOh hello there; my name is Sirius. I was a long term stray, being fed for 18 months and slowly building trust until they were able to bring me in to find my forever home. I am a lovely boy, very chatty and I like to be stroked, until I suddenly remember that I don't like people and then I sometimes lash out; this is getting less and less though, I can't tell anyone what happened to me to make me distrust humans, but time and patience are helping to heal me. I love my food and will start reminding you that I am there as soon as I see any food, I couldn't bear to miss a meal. I am hoping to find an experienced and patient guardian, who is willing to give lots of love (and food!) and allow me to build trust in my time. I would love a garden to explore, once I am settled in, far from busy roads or metro lines. I am neutered and ready to start the next chapter of my life, could you be my main character?

Jack

Rescue cat Jack, at New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead, needs a new homeHello, my name is Jack.  I’m a shorthaired black and white chap of about seven years old, and I’m looking for a quiet and loving indoor home with human friends of my very own.  I’m a shy but lovely natured boy who’ll need patience and time to learn to trust my new humans, but I’ve come out of my shell with my foster mum and like to provide company on the sofa and enjoy gentle fusses.  I’m not fond of other cats or dogs, and so a home as the only pet, and without children, will suit me best.  I was found to have a heart murmur but this currently requires no treatment.  I also have a little bit of arthritis and so am quite a sedate fellow.  I have been neutered.  If you think that you may be able to offer me the peaceful, caring permanent home I really deserve, please get in touch.

Scamp & Tufty

Rescue cats Scamp and Tufty from Canny Cats Rescue, Newcastle, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, need a homeHi there, we are Scamp & Tufty and we are looking for our forever home together. We are neutered and around 15 months old now; we are also quite mischievous and our foster family say that we have boundless energy. I (Scamp) had a few lumps and bumps on my head when I was just a few months old, I had lots and lots of tests and nothing sinister was found, it turned out to be dermatitis and I got some cream to pop on my head which cleared it up, if it comes back the cream sorts it out. Tufty and I are affectionate lads, we just need to find our people now because we have been here for so long; our foster home is great but we would really like a home of our very own. We could share with other cats; we have never had dealings with children or dogs, children would probably be ok if they are kind and respectful and if they will agree to play with us we would definitely be interested in being friends. If you could be the one to offer us our happy ever after please get in touch.

Mr Gently

Rescue Cat Mr Gentle from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, needs a homeHello, I'm Mr Gently. I'm a neutered tabby boy who was living on the streets for over 8 years. I had a home of my own once, it must have been a very quiet one. I’m very shy and spooked by any noises and movement. I found some nice humans in the neighbourhood who fed me and made a shelter. One of them gained my trust and called Willows for help. My Willows fosterer made me a hidey-camp and she waited, and waited…and waited. Each day she talked to me gently, left food, refreshed my water and cleaned my litter box. I have come to trust her and I love chin and tummy tickles. I will unfurl and purr and let her do it non-stop...till her arm and fingers ache. I finally trust her enough to sit beside her on the sofa close enough she can stroke me. I give head bumps for more attention and she says I melt her heart. I am a gentle soul - I would never lash out; instead I run away and hide if I’m scared. I'm looking for a quiet home with a loving, patient owner, without children or pets, who has plenty of spare time. Deep down I’m lonely and want company, it’s just I find it so very hard to trust. I want someone who won't mind that I will hide at the slightest noise, and that I might take weeks before I even show myself enough for you to touch me. It'll be best to let me settle in one room first, gain your trust before letting me into the next room and so on. But for now I am good, I’m just preparing you for future. It may be a lot of effort, but the reward will be 1000-fold when you realise you’ve given me a new life and I unfurl for the first time for you. When I quietly purr for the first time, when I lick your hand for the first time. And each little baby step I take towards trusting you.
MR GENTLY is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Tyne & Wear including Sunderland, Co.Durham and Northumberland. To make an enquiry please call: 07719 605383 or 07989 540342, and please mention you saw Mr Gently on Cat Chat, thank you!

Amber & Jade

Rescue cats Amber & Jade from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, need a homeWe've been waiting over a year... Please pick us! Good day, we are Amber & Jade a pair of young ladies looking for a home. We are beautiful girls but we are far from tame; we can be stroked, but it is clear that we don't enjoy being touched. The hope is that we can find a loving home, with an experienced human, who is willing to work with us and take the time to gain our trust. We are going to need lots of time and dedication to come around fully. We are neutered and looking for an adult only home. We understand that it is a big ask, but are sure that the right home is out there somewhere, with someone who will understand what a joy it is to finally see cats like us blossom; are you that person, we certainly hope so?

Smudge

Rescue Cat Smudge, Pawz for Thought, Sunderland needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hello! My name’s Smudge and I’m a gorgeous, grey and white, neutered girl. I’m looking for a rather special home because of my special needs. I arrived in care after being in some kind of accident or trauma, I’m keeping what actually happened to myself! I was very ill when I came in but after some treatment, needing my tail amputated and rehabilitation, I’ve got full mobility and am very playful. I can run and play and chase after toys! I’m incontinent though and am hoping to find someone experienced at expressing bladders and bowels. If my home had tiled floors, or areas that were easily cleaned, that would be so helpful too. I’d like access to a safe outdoor space please. I really don’t like other cats, so would prefer to be your only cat please. Would you have the home and love that I’m looking for?
