Rescue Cat Smudge from RSPCA - Northumberland West, Hexham needs a homeHi there, I’m on here to find myself someone who wants to be loved by a gorgeously, handsome, black and white chap like me! My name’s Smudge by the way and I’m only 18 months old. I thought I’d found myself a loving, forever home when my sister Tink and me were rehomed from the rescue as kittens but unfortunately, our owner’s circumstances changed and we found ourselves back here again and Tink found a new home, which leaves me still looking. But I’m sure I can’t be here for much longer, I mean look at my wee face and how could you resist loving me?? I adore getting cuddles and love company, I’m good with children and can share with other cats and even if you had a dog. I’ve been neutered and would love a garden to explore and sunbathe in. Think you could be the one I’m waiting for and are you ready to be loved by a friendly chap like me? Get in touch today…please?

Rescue cat Benjamin from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, need a homeHi there, my name is Benjamin; I am around 4 years old and have been neutered. I was found living rough, I was starving, covered in wounds and I had lost a lot of my fur due to flea allergy dermatitis; don’t worry though, regular flea treatment with a prescription flea prevention and I am fine; my fur has grown back now and I am back to looking handsome. I have been in foster care for a few months now and I am becoming more confident; I am still shy and nervous around new people and will need time to settle in to my new home but I have found that I quite enjoy sitting with my fosterer and getting lovely strokes. I am hoping to find a quieter home with no other cats and no young children, in fact if I could be your only pet that would be great. I would like to be able to explore outside, once I am completely settled in. If you think you could be the human for me then please do get in touch and we can arrange to meet; hopefully you will have room in your home and heart for me.
BENJAMIN is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. To make an enquiry, please call: 07719 605383, and please mention you saw Benjamin on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue Cat Binksy from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, needs a homeHi there, my name’s Binksy and I’m a lovely little, black and white girl, 10 years old and I’m hoping to find someone who can help me out. I’ve unfortunately found myself in care as the circumstances changed with my last owner and I found myself as part of a multi cat household. I was really struggling living there, I like to be the only cat (I’m not sure about dogs either!) I have to say, I’m feeling a wee bit out of sorts as my world’s been turned upside down with all the changes! I’m a friendly girl though and I do like to pop out of my wee house to greet anyone who comes to visit and even better if they give me a head rub - I really enjoy those. I’ve been neutered and am crossing my paws here that someone falls in love with me and picks me for their very own!
BINKSY is at Pawz for Thought, Sunderland. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.

Harry and Wills, rescue cats from Gateshead, Tyne and WearWe’ve been waiting over a year… Please pick us! Meow! We are Harry and Wills, and we are brothers looking for a new owner who has the love and devotion to be able to treat us like royalty! We are coming up to one year old, so are very lively as you would expect, but have had a semi-feral upbringing so far. This just makes us a bit nervous but we are still young enough to really come out of our shells. We can be very affectionate around the right people (if you have some treats for us it helps!) and we are looking for a safe, quiet home together. My name is Wills, you'll find my piccie on the left, and I am short haired with more of a white coat than my brother on the right. He is semi-long haired, and also has a slight heart defect, but it is controllable with medication. We would love to find a home together so I can look after my brother and we can share our affection with the right human. Please do get in touch if you think you could be the one for us.
HARRY & WILLS are at New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead. Rehoming in: Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.
