Rescue cat Trixie, at Cats Protection - Crawley, Reigate & District, needs a new homeHello, my name is Trixie. I’m a beautiful seven year old British Shorthair lady with a dark tortoiseshell coat. Like many cats who come into rescue it’s taken me a while to get over the upheaval and settle into my new surroundings, but I’m now ready to find a wonderful permanent home. I’d love to be the only pet in my new home so that I can be the centre of attention; for the same reason a home without children will suit me best. Once I’ve completely settled in I’d enjoy access to a garden. I have been spayed. I’m looking for a home in which I’ll be given all the time and understanding I need to feel safe and become a confident furry companion who can thoroughly enjoy ruling my roost! If you could offer me the love and patience I need and deserve, then please get in touch.

Rescue cat Rosie from Cats Protection - Crawley, Reigate & District, needs homeHello there, my name's Rose and I'm a little shy... Actually I'm both little and shy! I'm currently on a kitten food diet because of my smallness. But I'm about 3 years old. Now I can be timid at first and in new situations, but once I get to know and trust you I will be your friend. Do you need a little friend? I sure do! I'm looking for a home to settle down in without young children and where I will be given time and space to be myself please. I have been neuetered and we aren't sure how I'd be with other pets. Please say you'll have a think about taking me home. The rescue people think I will make a lovely companion. I wouldn't mind being an indoor cat, I just need a loving home!

Rescue cats Petal and Blossom from Croydon Animal Samaritans, West Kent, East and West London, Surrey, need a home Hi, my name is Petal (I am on the left) and the ginger hairy one is my daughter and bestie, Blossom. I raised my kittens outside and we are still getting used to the change in our circumstances. We are both shy but are getting used to interacting with people but we will need a loving and patient home to help us develop our confidence. We are both neutered now and ready to go to an adult only home or maybe one with older children who will give us time to get to know them. We could share our new home with other pets, we are used to living with dogs, cats and rabbits too. All we are asking is for a little room in your heart and plenty of time to become your best feline friends.

Rescue cat Berry from Croydon Animal Samaritans, West Kent, East and West London, Surrey, needs a home Hello there, my name is Berry and as you can see I am a handsome tabby lad. I am around 3 years old and have been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am an affectionate guy but I will let you know when I have had enough and want to be left alone, I am told this is 'cattitude' and I have plenty of it. I am looking for a home with an experience cat serving human, who will understand when I need space and time and will be patient and allow my loving side to flourish. I would rather be in an adult only home and would prefer not to share you with any other pets. If you think you could be my purr-fect match then get in touch, I have already been waiting ages.

Rescue Cats Megana & Rocket, HappyCats Rescue, Bordon needs a homeHello! We’re a handsome pair of boys called Megana and Rocket. We’re both around a year old and are hoping to find our forever home! We’re white and black and white and have both been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and deflead. We are a bit shy and are looking for an understanding owner who will give us lots love, time and space but who might also help the confidence building with some treats and fusses, we’ve found they’re really helping to bring us out of our shell in our foster home! Once we’re settled in a home of our own we know we’ll become confident cats in no time! As we are shy, we think we’d be best in a home with older children, we’re not sure about living with dogs but could share with another cat. We’ve only been indoor cats until now and would be happier being indoor until we’ve settled into our new home but once we’ve gained in confidence, we could be introduced to the outside world and might enjoy a secure garden to explore, away from busy roads. We’re currently being fostered in the GU35 area and so if you think you might have room in your heart and home for a handsome pair of lads like us, do get in touch!

Rescue cat Cinders from Battersea at Old Windsor, Berkshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, London, Surrey, needs a homeHello, my name’s Cinders and I’m a gorgeous, playful, inquisitive, black female cat looking for a home to call my own. I’m 4 years old and have been neutered. Although I’ll be a little shy until I get to know you, once I do, you’re going to fall in love with the wonderful little character I am! I love humans and fusses but also like time by myself too, exploring outside, playing with toys. I’ll let you have a game with my toys sometimes too! I’m hoping for someone who will give me lots of time to settle in and who will take their time when it comes to interacting and once I’m settled you’ll have a happy, loving and fun little cat. I’m looking for somewhere with a garden and a cat flap so I can come and go as I please, especially if you work full time. I’d happily live with teenage children but would like to be your only pet please. If you think you’re the one I’m looking for, please get in touch soon!

Rescue Cat Tucker, Battersea at Old Windsor, Windsor needs a homeHello! Tucker here…I’m just a black and white chap, dreaming of finding my forever home and thought I’d pop on here to see if I could make my dream come true! I’m 2 years old and have been neutered. When I came into the cattery I found it all too scary and so I packed my bags and went to a foster home. I settled in better there and like climbing into my foster carer’s lap for a snooze. I’m a shy but friendly boy and would love some owners of my own so that I can form a close bond with them and show them what a playful and loving cat I am. I came into care because my owner moved to a place where I had to be indoor only and I just couldn’t settle to it. I’m looking for somewhere with garden and if I can have a cat flap so that I can keep up to date with my fill of adventures and sunbathing I’ll be a happy chap! I’d rather not live with children and am not sure about living with other cats or dogs. Do you think you could be the one to make my dream come true and offer me a forever home? I hope you are and can’t wait to meet you!

Rescue cat Poppet from Furrballs Rescue, in Camberley, needs homeHello there, I'm Poppet and as you can see I am dainty tortie girl. I'm about 8 months old and I have been neutered. The rescue people aren't too certain of my past but it has made me very shy and worried about people. I don't like people to come too close but I like to watch them from a safe distance away. As after all, you humans are very interesting! The rescue people think I'd be best on a farm or rural location with a place to sleep somewhere warm and regular food. The main thing is access to the outdoors and ability to be fairly independant. I may not be a lap cat but I want to settle down and feel secure. Imagine my little face peeking over a wall at you curiously while you go about your day!
POPPET is at Furrballs Rescue, in Camberley, rehoming in Surrey. To make an enquiry, please call: 0792 765 4457 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , and please mention you saw her on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Marmaduke from Furballs Cat Rescue, Camberley, Surrey, needs a homeHi there, my name’s Marmaduke and I’m a handsome, ginger tabby boy. I’m 18 months old and have been neutered. I’m a loving boy who’s looking for plenty of attention, I’ve also got a bit of a fascination for feet and socks, don’t ask me why….I just do! I’m looking for an indoor home but one perhaps with a secure garden or patio where I can sunbathe. I’m good with children and I’d be fine with other cats and although I’m fine with dogs, I do tend to tease them so I think I may be best with no dogs in my new home! I can only eat a type of food called Thrive and the fish flavour please. I can get inflammatory bowel disease flare ups if I eat other food but I’m fine on the Thrive. I’ve tested positive for FIV and to find out more about FIV: Visit Cat Chat’s FIV information page, or the FIV Owner's Club on our friendly forum. So, if you have some feet, socks and lots of attention in a wonderful home for me, I’ll be waiting here to hear from you - get in touch soon, please?

Rescue cat Cali from Here For Cats, Cobham, Surrey, needs a homeHello, my name is Cali. I’m a beautiful tortoiseshell and white lady of just three years old, and I’m in search of a loving home in which I’ll have plenty of human company. I’m super affectionate and will make a terrific furry companion; I could probably share a home with another laid back young cat, but I’m not keen on dogs. A peaceful home without young children will suit me best, and I’d like a cat flap so that I can explore the outdoors when I’m not spending time with my human friends. I have been spayed. Could you offer me a caring and affectionate forever home? Get in touch!
CALI is at Here For Cats, Cobham. Rehoming in Surrey. To make an enquiry, please call: 07546 010 154 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Cali on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Violet from Here For Cats, Cobham, needs homeHello my dear, my name is Violet and I'm a sweet-natured gentle girl who just wants to be loved and to settle down. I was abandoned by my previous owner in the winter and left to freeze when it was snowy. I was so cold and confused, why anyone would do that when I am so loving? A kind neighbour contacted the rescue for help and now I am being fostered with kind people. I like my ears being scratched and I like to sit on the sofa watching telly. I am friendly but I don't like fast movements and I like a gentle head pat before being picked up. This is because I am a little deaf and blind. I am clean and have otherwise a full bill of health from the vets. So as you can see I am a very special girl, and as I am 12 years old I know people might think twice but I have a lot of love to give and I'm ready to trust again, even after being abandoned which the rescue people think is rather special.

Rescue cat Pixel, from RSPCA - Surrey, Woking & District, needs a homeHi there. My name is Pixel, and I am an eight year old male who has had quite a traumatic life so far, culminating in having to have my tail amputated after a recent injury. With all of my life experience, I have learnt to be a bit wary of loud noises, other animals and people - but I do come to trust and share my love with people that I have the time to get used to. I like to spend most of my time having a nap in my bed, dreaming of happier times - if I can find the right home I'll be able to think of even more positive things, like kib, chasing squirrels and being stroked! You'll find I have a very distinctive appearance (in addition to my lack of a tail!), courtesy of black markings over my white coat, and an incredibly cute little mouth! I would like a home with access to the outside, as it can be nervewracking not having an escape route! Most of all though, I would just love an owner with the patience to let me come out of my shell in a quiet and calm environment, or better yet someone with experience of similarly nervous felines in the past. Give me the chance and I promise you'll have a loving, affectionate cat once I get to know you. I've been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated and am waiting to meet you.

Rescue Cats Basil & Bertie from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, London needs a homeWe've been waiting over a year... Please pick us! Hi there, my name’s Basil and I’m here with my brother Bertie in the hope of catching someone special’s eye and finding ourselves a forever home. We’re both 18 months old, I’m black and white and Bertie’s tabby. We were strays until we were taken in by the Rescue. We were awfully lucky though that a nice couple fed us. Bertie is awful timid but he is improving slowly. He had a leg injury which ended up so bad that the vet people couldn’t save it and he had to have it removed but I don’t think he’s realised as he gets about fine and still plays with me just as much! Bertie depends on me, I’m more confident than he is and so we need to find a home where we can stay together. We’re looking for patient people who will give us time to get used to being in a family and given time we’ll reward you by being such a wonderful pair of cats. We’ve both been neutered and would love a secure garden to play chase in oh and if you’ve got some garden chairs that would be great, we’ve discovered how fab they are for having a snooze! Please give us a chance?
BASIL & BERTIE are at Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, rehoming in West and South West London, Hounslow, Brentford, Isleworth, Twickenham, Ealing, Feltham, Hanworth, Ashford, Staines etc. To make an enquiry please call: 020 8560 5443 and please mention you saw Basil & Bertie on Cat Chat, thank you

Rescue cat Lara from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, Hounslow, West London, Surrey, needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hello, my name is Lara. I'm desperately seeking a loving new home, and I was hoping you might be able to help me? I'm a gorgeous 2 year old girl. I have a beautiful black coat. I'm a sweet and gentle cat and can't wait to find my loving new family. I was previously living in a multi-cat household and found myself at the rescue when I became pregnant. I have since been neutered. My kittens have both been adopted so it's now time for me to find you! I should be fine to live with sensible older children but I would rather not live with dogs. I'd need access to the outdoors in my new home so I can potter about outside. I'm such a sweetie and really deserve a life of happiness!
LARA is at Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, rehoming in West and South West London, Hounslow, Brentford, Isleworth, Twickenham, Ealing, Feltham, Hanworth, Ashford, Staines etc. To make an enquiry please call: 020 8560 5443 and please mention you saw Lara on Cat Chat, thank you!
