Rescue cat Bandit, at Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a new homeHello, my name is Bandit. I’m a very handsome black and white chap of eight years old, and I found myself in the rehoming centre after my owner sadly died. I’m feeling very frightened and confused at the moment, and so I’m looking for a peaceful and understanding home - without young children - where I’ll be given the time and space I need to help me rebuild my confidence. Once I’ve settled in and learned to trust my new human friends I’ll be able to find my contented, fuss-loving former self again. I’ve previously shared a home with another cat, so I may be able to do so again. I am neutered, and I’d eventually like access to a safe garden. If you think that you might be able to help me overcome my shyness and offer me the quiet and loving permanent home I really deserve, then please get in touch.

Rescue cat Millie, from Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a homeHi there human! My name is Millie. How are you? I am a friendly 10-year old black and white puss from Cambridge, and I'm very pleased to meet you! As you can see from my portrait, I have very distinctive markings and you certainly can't say I'm not an interesting girl to look at! I'm pretty young-at-heart, and love to play with toys, so you will find me tumbling around and trying to catch feathery objects whenever there are some near me. I really thrive in quiet environments, so am looking forward to getting out of the cattery and into a nice, safe home. With that in mind, I'd prefer a home without young children or other pets please, but I do need access to the outside so I can really stretch my legs! I have been neutered, chipped and vaccinated, so am ready and waiting to meet my new owner. I hope it's you!

Rescue cat Melman, at RSPCA West Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, needs a new homeHello, my name is Melman. I’m a beautiful, spayed tabby lady of about ten years old, and I’m looking for a wonderful forever home in which I can be queen of my domain. I was abandoned at the rescue centre and this traumatic experience has left me a little reluctant to trust humans, so I need a kind and understanding new friend to help me regain my confidence. If you’re looking for an independent cat with plenty of character who enjoys her own space (unless you leave the room, when I have a tendency to follow!), and can offer me a home as the only feline resident, then we could be the perfect match. Why not get in touch?

Rescue cat Gloria from RSPCA West Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds, needs homeHello lovely people, I'm Gloria. My story is that I was dumped outside the rescue in a cat carrier. I was so scared and confused, what could I have done to deserve that? I'm a friendly and gentle girl who loves to be stroked and made a fuss of. I'm quiet and would like to be the only cat as I like to feel secure in my space and have somewhere to hide if I feel like it. As you can see I'm a rather fine looking (so the rescue people say) tabby girl. I have been estimated to be about 10 years old and I am neuetered. Above all I want to be a companion and feel safe and loved. Do you think you could make that happen for me?

Rescue cat Abbie from Cats Protection Framlingham & Saxmundham, Suffolk, needs a homeHello, it's me! My name is Abbe and I am a 5 year old, neutered, tabby girl. My human got too ill to care for me so I find myself on the hunt for a new home. I am a curious little lass, who loves to follow you around and have a good chat. I am hoping to find a home where I can be the only pet, I haven't had much to do with children so I am not sure whether I could live with them. Maybe I could just be your companion, believe me I will love you if you just love me too and I will be a fantastic feline friend to you. If you are looking for someone to keep you company and think you need a chatty cat in your life, then look no further and just make the call to meet me, I will be right here waiting for you!

Rescue cat Fleur and Fern from Cats Protection Framlingham & Saxmundham, Suffolk, need a homeHi there, my name is Fleur, that's me in the picture; I am here with my sister Fern but she is too shy to have her picture taken, we are both tabby ladies and we are around 6 months old. We are looking for a lovely new outdoor home where we can be in charge of mouse patrol, so we will earn our keep. We are hoping to find a safe, dry barn or outbuilding where we can lay our heads and be fed and yet still have the freedom we both want. We aren't used to being handled, as we were born outside, but I will let you stroke me, once I get to know you. We are both neutered and are ready to get to work, so if you need some furry pest control officers do get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue Cat Megan, Bury St. Edmunds & Stowmarket, Bury St. Edmunds needs a homeHello! My name’s Megan and I’m a 5 year old, pretty tortoiseshell and white cat…actually no, I’m a very pretty girl! I’m just going by what everyone around me tells me though and can I help it if I’m gorgeous?? Anyway, you’re being given the wonderful chance to be my new owner, how lucky are you! I was very sad to have to say goodbye to my previous owner but they had to move to an area where it would have been unsuitable for me to go outside. I’ve been used to living in a rural location and I love going outside and hunting and so we had to go our separate ways. I’m a very friendly girl and will chirrup a hello when I see you. I’ve never been around dogs and didn’t get on with the other cat in my last home so I’m looking to be your only pet. I think I’d be best in an adult only home or one with older children. I’ve been neutered and am just waiting for my special person or people to fall in love with me!
MEGAN is at Cats Protection - Bury St. Edmunds & Stowmarket. Rehoming in Postal Codes: IP6, IP7, IP8, IP14, IP22, IP23, IP29 to IP33 and CO10.

Rescue Cat Boudica, National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton, Clacton needs a homeHello everyone, I’m Boudica and very pleased to meet you! I’m a beautiful, tortie and white, neutered lady and I’m looking for a home to call my own. I’m 17 years of age but anyone who knows me thinks I’m half that because of the way I jump up on posts and the head bumps I give being like a force to be reckoned with! They’re delivered with lots of love though as you can tell by my loud purr as I’m giving them. I’m mostly looking for a soft comfy lap to curl up in and plenty of fuss to go along with it. I’d also like a garden to have a potter about in and a sunbathe when the sun’s out. Now, I’m not sure about children but I’m happy to meet children 12 years and older and see how we go. I’d rather be your only pet though, all the more fuss for me! So, what do you think….have you got the purrfect lap for me? If you think you might have, please get in touch and arrange a meeting I’ll be here waiting patiently!
