Rescue cats Molly and Dot from Clacton National Animal Welfare Trust, needs homeHi there, my name is Molly and I'm the short-haired girl, my pal Dot has semi-long hair and a beauty spot near her nose. We are a sweet pair of girls who are best friends despite an age gap. I'm 12 but I dont act it! I'm very playful and can more than keep up with 3 year old Dot! I'm the bolder of the two, Dot can be timid until she gets to know you but when she does, she loves a fuss as much as I do. We are both neutered and would be best in a home with adults only or older kids, no other cats and but maybe a gentle calm dog. If you think we could be the pair for you please contact the centre to come and say hello! We can't wait to meet you!

Rescue cat Babs, at Clacton National Animal Welfare Trust, needs a new homeHello, my name is Babs. I’m a sweet-natured, spayed lady of five years old, with a short-haired white and black coat and an unusual (but very charming) habit of carrying my tail curled into a loop. I’m looking for a wonderful forever home in which I’ll be given all the fusses I require, and also the space I’d like when I’m feeling more independent. A home with adults only, or perhaps with older sensible children, will suit me best as I’m not used to youngsters; and as I’m not keen on other cats or dogs I’d prefer to be your only furry resident. Once I’ve settled in I’d enjoy having access to a safe garden to explore. If you think that you may be able to offer me a permanent caring home, I’d love to meet you!

Rescue cat Billy, at Blue Cross, Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a new homeHello, my name is Billy. I’m a gorgeous, neutered boy of twelve years old, with a short haired ginger coat. I’m looking for a loving permanent home where I can stroll indoors and out as I please, enjoying a calm and relaxed environment and winning over any human I encounter with my adorable face! An adult home, or one with older children, will suit me best; I’d also like to be the only pet in my kitty kingdom as I’m not a fan of other felines. My sweet and friendly nature has won me many human friends here in rescue, and I’m hoping that I’ll soon find a forever home with a devoted human companion or two of my very own. Could you offer me the love and care I deserve?

Rescue cat Coco from Ipswich & District Animal Welfare, Ipswich, Suffolk, needs a homeHello there, my name is Coco and as you can see I am a very handsome lad with a shiny black coat. I am around 3 years old and am neutered too. I am a bit of a chunk, so a home with some outdoor space where I can run around and loose a pound or two would be fabulous. I am a lovely lad and do enjoy cuddling up to people; so if you are in need of a companion cat then I am quite possibly the lad for you, please arrange to meet me and I shall keep my paws crossed that you could be my new forever hooman.

Rescue cat Jet from Ipswich & District Animal Welfare, Ipswich, Suffolk, needs a homeHello, my name is Jet. I’m a handsome neutered boy of about six years old, with a short-haired black coat. I’ve been living outside at the rescue shelter with another resident cat, who has now sadly passed away. I’m rather lonely without my friend and am spending more time inside the shelter, learning to overcome my shyness and show my true affectionate nature. I’m ready to find a wonderful forever home where I can continue to gain confidence and, given plenty of time and patience, become a loving furry companion. I’ll need a quiet home, without children, with a safe garden for me to explore. I could share a home with another friendly feline but am not yet sure about dogs. Having discovered my purr it would be wonderful to share it with a caring, understanding human friend in a warm and loving forever home… Could that be with you?

Rescue Cat Manny, RSPCA - West Suffolk Branch, Bury St. Edmunds needs a homeHello, I’m Manny and I’m a 6 year old, neutered, black and white boy looking for my very own forever home. When I was found by the rescue, I’d been in the wars a bit but with everyone here’s help and tlc, I’m back to my fit and healthy self again. I’ve got lots of energy and am looking very smart, if I do say so myself! With all that energy, I’m looking for a lovely garden for me to prowl in and I love to play too. I’m happy to live with children but would prefer to be your only cat although I’m not sure about dogs. I am looking for someone kind and patient, I might take a little bit of time to get used to my new home and settle in but I’ll reward you with lots of love once I’ve settled in. So, what do you think, could you give this little black and white boy the chance he’s looking for?

Rescue cat Susie, from Blue Cross - Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a homeHi there, my name is Susie. Don't I look adorable in my photo? I'm a neutered black and white girl of a very distinguished eleven years old. I am looking for a calm and quiet home where I can stretch out and relax, without fear of other pets or noisy young humans - though I could possibly live with older children if they're kind to me. I need lots of kindness you see, as I'm very shy and it's likely to take me a while to come out of my shell at first. My favourite thing to do is snuggle up nice and warm in my igloo bed, so cosy! Once I'm settled and comfortable in my new home I'll be happy to have a wander around the house, maybe sit on a windowsill or curl up on a cushion. When it's nice out I'd like to be able to have a bit of a sunbathe too, so access to the outdoors would be perfect. I also love my food, so that's maybe a way of winning my heart if you can find out my favourite snack! It'll be worth the wait of winning me over, I promise. If you think you have a Susie-shaped place in your heart and home, please get in touch - you won't regret it!

Rescue cat Sebastion, at Cats Protection - Framlingham & Saxmundham, Suffolk, needs a new homeHello, my name is Sebastion. I’m a handsome five year old boy with a ginger and white coat, and I’m looking for an extra-special, loving forever home. I’ve experienced some tough times, and when I first came into rescue I was very unwell indeed and needed a great deal of dedicated care to make it through. I’m now ready to find a wonderful home where I can continue to enjoy the kindness and understanding I missed out on in earlier life. An experienced, adult-only home will suit me best, as I love human company and affection on my own terms but will let you know when I need a little space. I’d prefer to be your only pet, and would ideally love a home in a rural location as I enjoy exploring outdoors. I have been neutered. If you think that you might be able to offer me the permanent home I’m searching for, then please come and meet me soon!
