Rescue Cat Kiki, Paws & Claws Animal Rescue Service, Haywards Heath needs a homeHello, my name’s Kiki and I’m a beautiful, blue/grey girl of 12 years. I know, I don’t look 12 years old but us girls do like to do our best to look elegant and youthful whatever age we are! Since I’ve been at the rescue, I’ve let the people here know that I’m not fond of other cats and I think considering how beautiful I am, I need a home where I’ll get all of the attention! I’m looking for a home where I’ll be worshipped…ahem I mean loved and spoiled! A home with experienced cat owners, no children or any other pets - well, you’ve got a little star like me, why would you need anything else? I heard the vet nurse talking and she mentioned she thought I might be part British Shorthair which could be where I get my stunning good looks from! I’ve been neutered and would like a garden to prowl in. So, if you have a nice calm home in need of a touch of feline grace and beauty, I’m your girl! I’ll be waiting for your call.

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 cat Bella from Cats Protection - Worthing & District, needs homeHi, I'm Bella and I am a 6 year old girl who is unfortunately shy but also affectionate! This places me in great torment as I can't help from shying away from new or scary situations but my heart is breaking as I hide, as I just want to be loved and made a fuss of. Do you think you could be patient enough to help me and earn my trust? My last rescue ended in failure as the household was too lively and I was scared. I'm looking to live a quiet life with someone who lets me hide under the bed til I'm ready to peep my head out. I really am an affectionate girl when I get to know you! I would like some access to outdoors and I'm best as your only pet. Please say you will have a think about it, the rescue people think I will make a lovely companion and will be worth some patience.

Rescue Cat Midnight, Cats Protection - Worthing & District, Worthing needs a homeHello, my name’s Midnight and as you might expect, I’m a sleek black cat looking for a home. I’m 5 years old and have been neutered. I’ve got the sweetest nature and am very gentle and would love to have a special person (or people!) to love and who will love me in return. I love my food even though I have had all my teeth removed, I manage to scoff it with no bother! I like to play and am very clean. I’d be happier in a home without young children and would prefer to be your only pet please. I’m in good health although I do carry a cat flu related virus which may flare up from time to time and especially if I get stressed but it’s not a problem and settles again. I’d like access to a garden for a spot of prowling and sun bathing. So, if you’re on the lookout for a loving, gentle cat, you need look no further and you’d also make my dream come true of having a home of my own to settle into!

Rescue cat Shadow, at Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre, Chichester, needs a new homeHello, my name is Shadow. I’m a very handsome seven year old chap with a fluffy black and white coat. I’ve been looking for my wonderful forever home for quite a while now, as I’m not the most confident of cats and need a calm and peaceful home plus plenty of time to settle in. A home with an understanding and patient human friend, and without children, will be perfect for me. Once I overcome my nerves and learn to trust you I’ll be able to relax, enjoy gentle fusses and access to a safe garden, and become a lovely feline companion. I have been neutered. If you think that you might be able to offer me the caring, quiet, permanent home I’m longing for, then I do hope you’ll get in touch!

Rescue cats Lovejoy and Joyanna, from Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre, Chichester, need a homeHello! My name is Lovejoy, and I am a very handsome 4 year old, grey and white, fluffy male. I arrived at The Centre a while back with my kittens, after we had been living as strays. This beautiful black and white lady here with me is Joyanna, mother to those kittens I came in with. She didn’t come into The Centre until later, as she was a bit harder to catch than me. Joyanna was pregnant at the time, so we had to stay separate while she had the kitts, but now they are big enough to look after themselves, so Joyanna is back with me. The staff think that we have probably been strays most of our lives, which means we have found life here at The Centre quite scary. When I first arrived I wouldn't let anyone touch me, as I was so nervous, and Joy was pretty much the same, but now we are beginning to trust a little more, and although we still hiss or growl at first, we will let you have a little stroke. It's going to be a slow process for us to completely trust humans, but we really do want to find a forever home, with someone who has the patience to let us settle at our own pace. We have both been been neutered, and are looking for a quiet home together, with access to a garden to potter round in. If you think you have the type of home that would suit us, then please get in touch soon, we have our paws tightly crossed!

Rescue cat Aisha from Cats Protection – Horsham & District, needs a home Hello, my name is Aisha. I'm a pretty tabby and white neutered cat looking for a forever home, if you can help me? I'm a lovely girl and can't wait to find a loving new home. I was a little nervous when I first came into the rescue and it took me a little while to get settled in. I can be a little shy when I first meet people, but I then come out of my shell once I get to know you a bit. I'd like access to the outdoors in my new home please, so I can enjoy rolling about in the sunshine. I would prefer a home without children and dogs. I might be okay with another cat. Please get in touch for more information about me. I have a lot of love to give and can't wait to meet my new humans.

Rescue cats Accio & Lumos from Celia Hammond Animal Sanctuary, Hastings, Sussex, Kent, need a homeHello human! We are Accio and Lumos, a magical mother-and-son duo in striking black and white outfits. Aren't we smart? We have had a bit of a tremulous spell recently, with myself (that's Lumos!) having rather too many babies in rather too short a time, leaving me exhausted and a bit worse for wear. Now though I am all better and looking forward to finding a happy home where I can have a nice relaxing life with my son (that's Accio!) - and somewhere that hopefully no Dementors can find us! Accio is understandably still a bit timid and wary of loud noises or unruly Hogwarts students, so we would best suit a quiet home with no young children or other pets. We have both been neutered, so if you are looking for a lovely bonded pair of beautiful black and white cats, you know how to summon us...
