Scamp & Tufty

Rescue cats Scamp and Tufty from Canny Cats Rescue, Newcastle, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, need a homeHi there, we are Scamp & Tufty and we are looking for our forever home together. We are neutered and around 15 months old now; we are also quite mischievous and our foster family say that we have boundless energy. I (Scamp) had a few lumps and bumps on my head when I was just a few months old, I had lots and lots of tests and nothing sinister was found, it turned out to be dermatitis and I got some cream to pop on my head which cleared it up, if it comes back the cream sorts it out. Tufty and I are affectionate lads, we just need to find our people now because we have been here for so long; our foster home is great but we would really like a home of our very own. We could share with other cats; we have never had dealings with children or dogs, children would probably be ok if they are kind and respectful and if they will agree to play with us we would definitely be interested in being friends. If you could be the one to offer us our happy ever after please get in touch.

Fork & Spoon

Rescue cats Fork and Spoon from Canny Cats Rescue, Newcastle, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, need a homeHello, my name is Fork and I am the ginger girl and this is my best friend Spoon she is a stunning tortie lass. We are both neutered and are looking for a home where we have a person who will work with us, give us strokes and treats. We will need a home where we can have our own room to begin with, we can still be a little timid and will need time to come around and regain our confidence. We could live with other cats but would prefer no children and as we haven't had any dealings with dogs we aren't sure about sharing with them. If you have the time and experience to help us blossom then please get in touch, we have our paws crossed that you won't be too long.

Jasmin

Rescue cat Jasmin from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, needs a homeHiya, my name is Jasmin. I am a neutered, black and white, long-haired lassie. When I first arrived at Pawz, I was feral and could be aggressive because I was so terrified of everything and just wanted to be left alone; thankfully, they didn't and instead worked with me in my foster home. It has taken plenty of time and patience but I am improving ; I still don't like strokes but I no longer hiss at my fosterer. My dream home would have an understanding person, who will accept me for what I am now; work with me, love and care for me but don't need me to be a cuddly cat. I mean , it is possible that I might surprise everyone, but it is equally as likely that I will never become a lap cat. If you could offer me a chance at this happy ever after malarkey then please get in touch and maybe we can become good pals.

Mr Gently

Rescue Cat Mr Gentle from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, needs a homeHello, I'm Mr Gently. I'm a neutered tabby boy who was living on the streets for over 8 years. I had a home of my own once, it must have been a very quiet one. I’m very shy and spooked by any noises and movement. I found some nice humans in the neighbourhood who fed me and made a shelter. One of them gained my trust and called Willows for help. My Willows fosterer made me a hidey-camp and she waited, and waited…and waited. Each day she talked to me gently, left food, refreshed my water and cleaned my litter box. I have come to trust her and I love chin and tummy tickles. I will unfurl and purr and let her do it non-stop...till her arm and fingers ache. I finally trust her enough to sit beside her on the sofa close enough she can stroke me. I give head bumps for more attention and she says I melt her heart. I am a gentle soul - I would never lash out; instead I run away and hide if I’m scared. I'm looking for a quiet home with a loving, patient owner, without children or pets, who has plenty of spare time. Deep down I’m lonely and want company, it’s just I find it so very hard to trust. I want someone who won't mind that I will hide at the slightest noise, and that I might take weeks before I even show myself enough for you to touch me. It'll be best to let me settle in one room first, gain your trust before letting me into the next room and so on. But for now I am good, I’m just preparing you for future. It may be a lot of effort, but the reward will be 1000-fold when you realise you’ve given me a new life and I unfurl for the first time for you. When I quietly purr for the first time, when I lick your hand for the first time. And each little baby step I take towards trusting you.

Oreo

Rescue cat Oreo from Helping Pets - North East, Newcastle, Tyne & Wear, Durham, Northumberland, needs a homeHi, my name is Oreo, I think it might be because I have a black and white coat, or maybe someone thought I was sweet. I am 7 years old and have to find myself a new home. I am looking for a home where I can have a lazy evening on the sofa watching tv with you; as you can see from the picture I do love a good snuggle and snooze. I have been described as being a little grumpy sometimes; I will hiss and maybe swipe if I am scared or overwhelmed (we all have our off moments), so I think I would be best suited to an adult home, nice and calm and where I can be the only pet - queen of the castle possibly!? If you are patient and loving, can see past my little foibles and could offer me a home, please let my people know and they will see if we could be a match.
OREO is at Helping Pets - North East, Newcastle. Rehoming in Tyne & Wear, Co.Durham and Northumberland.

Amber & Jade

Rescue cats Amber & Jade from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, need a homeWe've been waiting over a year... Please pick us! Good day, we are Amber & Jade a pair of young ladies looking for a home. We are beautiful girls but we are far from tame; we can be stroked, but it is clear that we don't enjoy being touched. The hope is that we can find a loving home, with an experienced human, who is willing to work with us and take the time to gain our trust. We are going to need lots of time and dedication to come around fully. We are neutered and looking for an adult only home. We understand that it is a big ask, but are sure that the right home is out there somewhere, with someone who will understand what a joy it is to finally see cats like us blossom; are you that person, we certainly hope so?

Smudge

Rescue Cat Smudge, Pawz for Thought, Sunderland needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hello! My name’s Smudge and I’m a gorgeous, grey and white, neutered girl. I’m looking for a rather special home because of my special needs. I arrived in care after being in some kind of accident or trauma, I’m keeping what actually happened to myself! I was very ill when I came in but after some treatment, needing my tail amputated and rehabilitation, I’ve got full mobility and am very playful. I can run and play and chase after toys! I’m incontinent though and am hoping to find someone experienced at expressing bladders and bowels. If my home had tiled floors, or areas that were easily cleaned, that would be so helpful too. I’d like access to a safe outdoor space please. I really don’t like other cats, so would prefer to be your only cat please. Would you have the home and love that I’m looking for?

Simon & Lewis

Rescue cats Simon and Lewis, at New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead, need a new homeWe've been waiting over a year... Please pick us! Hello, my name is Simon, a handsome black and white chap, and I’m here in rescue with my buddy Lewis, who has a tabby and white coat. We’re of a similar age, around two years old, both neutered, and we’re looking for a wonderful forever home together. Like many cats who have a tough start in life we both feel safer and happier in the company of other felines and haven’t learned to bond closely with humans. We’re not feral cats, and we love the comfort of an indoor home with good meals and warm beds to sleep in, but we need a home with humans who are happy to give us love and care without expecting us to become cuddly lap cats! A peaceful home without children will suit us best, though we could share our space with other friendly cats. We deserve an understanding permanent home together in which we’re loved just the way we are… Could that home be with you?
