Rescue cat Vinnie, at Cats Protection - Gateshead & Newcastle, needs a new homeHello, my name is Vinnie.  I’m a handsome four year old boy with a short haired black and white coat, and I’m looking for a wonderful permanent home.  When I first came into rescue I was very frightened indeed, but a few months of loving care and understanding in my foster home have helped me to overcome my fears and become my friendly, affectionate self again.  I’m hoping to find a forever home where I’ll receive the same care and patience; I could live with another friendly cat or dog, and once I’ve settled in I’d enjoy having access to a safe garden.  I have been neutered.  My rescuers think I deserve to be part of a fabulous family - could that be with you?

Rescue cat Sally from Helping Pets, North East, needs a home Hello, I'm a gorgeous black and white female cat looking for my forever home.....could it be with you?? I'm about 8 years old and am neutered. I'm a sweet natured girl and enjoy receiving affection and cwtching up on my humans lap. I also like to be independent and enjoy my own company, as well as my humans; I am a cat after all! When I came to the rescue I had a skin condition but this seems to be improving now as my coat is lovely and glossy. My new human/s will need to carry on with my medical treatment for my skin condition. However, the rescue will continue to pay for this if one of their partner vets is used. I could live in a home with older children, who will respect my cat-ness! I might be able to live with a dog but would prefer to be the only cat. Please get in touch for more information about me. I'm a sweet natured, affectionate girl and I can't wait to have my own humans again!

Rescue cat Tiddles from Cats Protection, Tyne & Wear, needs a home Hello, my name is Tiddles. I'm a pretty tabby and white female cat. I'm about 8 years old and am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I'm a super affectionate girl and love to be close to my owner. Please make sure there is room on the bed for me at night time, as it's where I like to snuggle up. I tend to bond very closely to one person so would make a brilliant companion for someone. I can be a little shy at first and am a bit wary of strangers so a quieter home without other pets and without children would be best for me. A garden would be nice, but to be honest I've not shown much interest in going outdoors so I could possibly adapt to being indoors. Please get in touch for more information about me. I'm a sweet and loving girl and can't wait to find my human companion.

Rescue cat Whisper, at New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead, needs a new homeHello, my name is Whisper. I’m a beautiful tabby lady of about 14 years old. I’m spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and in good health, but the one thing I’m missing is a wonderful loving home. Like most of us of mature years, I know my own mind and am happiest when able to potter around doing my own thing - a quiet, indoor-only home without children or other cats will be my perfect retirement palace! I do enjoy being stroked, but also have my more independent moods (with a bit of cattitude!) when I prefer some space. If you could offer me the peaceful, caring, permanent home I need then why not get in touch?

Rescue cat Tommy from New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead, needs a home Hello, my name is Tommy. I'm a pretty tabby and white 5 year old neutered male cat. I'm looking for a loving new home and I was really hoping you might be able to help? You see, I've had a really difficult time so far in life. I was living outside for a while, and with not being neutered I was getting into fights and getting injured and sadly I contracted FIV. It's beome quite clear that I'm a big softie! I love being petted and stroked and would love nothing more than to live as a family pet. I am looking for an indoor home, with no other animals. The rescue don't know about my experience with children. Please get in touch for more information about me. I'm a sweet and loving boy and can't wait to snuggle up with my new family. To find out about FIV: Visit Cat Chat’s FIV information page, or the FIV Owner's Club on our friendly forum.

Rescue cat Nancy from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, Durham, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, needs a homeHi there everyone, my name is Nancy and I am a gorgeous, calico tortie lassie, who is 8 months old. I am hoping to find a new hooman to look after me; I have had hoomans previously but they had little hoomans who terrified me, so my new home should not have any children. I am a typical cheeky young cat, I can sometimes have a mad half hour and be a tinker; I will definitely fill your home with fun and love if you think you could find a little room in your heart for me. I will most definitely be neutered before going to my forever home, you will be all the family I need.
NANCY is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. To make an enquiry, please call: 07719 605383, and please mention you saw Nancy on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Jake, from Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, needs a homeHi there! My name's Jake. I'm an extremely handsome black-and-white boy, not to mention an all-round top bloke. Four years old and I'm not modest at all, I know how brilliant I am. Having said that I don't mind sharing the love around - you'll not meet a nicer cat than me! I love attention and having a good old natter, especially when it's time for my dinner. Just thinking about dinner is making me hungry! When I'm hungry you'll definitely know about it because I'll tell you. Meow meow meow, that's what I'll say. I know when to shut up though and the best way to achieve this is by giving me food, or rubbing my chin! Once we've got to know each other would it be possible please to allow me access to your comfortable bed? I promise I don't snore and will diligently chase away any intruders and protect your life at all costs (cannot 100% guarantee I will do this if I'm sleeping or sitting very comfortably). I also need one of those magical cat portals to allow me to warp outside and sleep in patches of sun, one of my favourite pastimes! Please no alarming dog-shaped companions though, I don't like those, and I'd prefer older kids to live with as I find young children scary and unpredicatable. I am neutered, chipped and all the rest, so if you think I am the right cat for you, please get in touch - you won't regret it, I swear.
JAKE is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. To make an enquiry, please call: 07719 605383, and please mention you saw Jake on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue Cat Binksy from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hi there, my name’s Binksy and I’m a lovely little, black and white girl, 10 years old and I’m hoping to find someone who can help me out. I’ve unfortunately found myself in care as the circumstances changed with my last owner and I found myself as part of a multi cat household. I was really struggling living there, I like to be the only cat (I’m not sure about dogs either!) I have to say, I’m feeling a wee bit out of sorts as my world’s been turned upside down with all the changes! I’m a friendly girl though and I do like to pop out of my wee house to greet anyone who comes to visit and even better if they give me a head rub - I really enjoy those. I’ve been neutered and am crossing my paws here that someone falls in love with me and picks me for their very own!
BINKSY is at Pawz for Thought, Sunderland. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.
