Scamp & Tufty

Rescue cats Scamp & Tufty from Canny Cats Rescue, Hexham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, need a homeHello there, we are Scamp and Tufty, we are less than a year old and have been neutered. As you can see from our photo we are best friends who love to cuddle up together; we can be a little mischievous sometimes and our fosterers say we have boundless energy. Scamp had a few lumps and bumps on his head when we were first found, he had lots of tests and the vet diagnosed dermatitis so he had some cream and it cleared it up, he had another flare recently but that settled nicely. We are both affectionate lads and would love a human bean of our own to give all that affection to. We would be happy to share our forever home with other cats but haven't had any dealings with dogs or children, we think children would be ok as long as they were kind and respectful and played with us - of course. If you think you could offer us a loving home, please get in touch.

Oreo

Rescue cat Oreo from Helping Pets - North East, Newcastle, needs homeHey there, I'm Oreo and I'm a gorgeous 7-year-old, neutered, girl looking for a new home. I'm a big softy with a lot of love to give and I enjoy fuss and attention (on my terms of course!) I am at my happiest curled up on the sofa having a lazy TV night with my favorite people. Like many humans, I can be a little grumpy at times and can sometimes hiss and swipe at people when I am scared or overwhelmed. Because of this, I am looking for a calm, adult-only home with no other pets where I can be given the time and space I need to settle in and feel safe. Thank you so much for reading!

Sammy

Rescue Cat Sammy, Helping Pets - North East, Newcastle needs a homeHello, my name's Sammy and I'm a beautiful, 4 year old, tortie girl. I was part of a multi cat household and had had several litters of kittens. I've been looking after little ones for a while now and I think it's time that I had a lovely human or two to look after me. I'm hoping for lots of spoiling and pampering and I'd like a home with no children or other pets so that all the attention is for me! I have been spayed so no more kittens to look after. All I'm waiting for now is for my loving forever home to find me, so that I can start living my happy ever after!

Mischief

Rescue cat Mischief from Helping Pets - North East, Newcastle, Tyne & Wear, Durham, Northumberland, needs a homeHello, my name is Mischief, although I am anything but. I am 7 ish years old and quite charming. I love attention, although I am a little shy so it may take a little time before I show you my adorable nature. I like to be by your side and will come to you for attention; it took a few days for me to trust my foster family enough to ask though. I am on the look out for a quiet home, with no young children because I get startled easily; I would also like to stay as an indoor cat, I am perfectly happy in the warm and dry and see no reason to go outside. I am neutered, chipped and up to date with flea and worm prevention. If you think that you are the one to give me the life of strokes I dream of, please get in touch.

Moses

Rescue cat Moses, at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields, needs a new homeHello, my name is Moses. I’m an immensely handsome, neutered, tabby-haired fellow in search of an extra-special forever home. Before coming into rescue I was fending for myself as a stray, and not at all used to close interaction with humans. I’m still very frightened of unfamiliar things and people, but have shown that over a long period in a calm, understanding home with lots of gentleness and patience I can gradually gain confidence, learn to trust and become less fearful. I have even enjoyed strokes from my kind fosterer! I am neutered, and am looking for a home without other pets or children. A gentle human who’ll be able to offer me a quiet permanent home in which to settle down at my own very slow pace and interact on my own terms, whilst keeping me warm, comfortable and well fed, will be my perfect companion. Do you think that you could offer me the chance of a happy and secure future with all the love and care I deserve?
MOSES is at Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields. Rehoming in Tyne & Wear including Sunderland, Co.Durham and Northumberland. To make an enquiry please call: 07719 605383 or 07989 540342, and please mention you saw Moses on Cat Chat, thank you!

Bella

Rescue Cat Bella, Willows Cat Adoption Centre, South Shields needs a homeHello, I'm Bella, a 10 year old, blue grey, shorthaired lady. I'm looking for a really quiet home with one, maybe two, kind, calm and patient humans. I'd like not to be around any children and also to be your only pet. I will take time to trust my new human and build a bond but once I've settled in I have my times where I'm chatty and follow you around telling you to feed me, let me into the bedroom to sleep or let me into the garden! I'll often be in the room you're not to have peace for a snooze. I like strokes but will let you know when I've had enough with a bat or maybe a hiss, just saying! If I'm feeling really generous with my affections, I will climb onto a comfy knee! I'm mostly an indoor kitty but if it's nice weather, I will have a wander into the garden, I do like to feel the sun on me. I've been neutered and  in good health. If you'd like the pleasure of my company, do get in touch?

Amber & Jade

Rescue cats Amber & Jade from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Durham, need a homeGood 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 homeHello! 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 homeHello, 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?
SIMON & LEWIS are at New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead. Rehoming in Northumberland, Gateshead and Newcastle.

Dylan & Maggie

Rescue Cats Dylan and Maggie, from New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead, need a homeHello, my name's Dylan, I'm a handsome ginger boy, here with my best friend Maggie. I was born outside and caught by humans at 11 weeks old. I've lived as a house cat since then but I don't like people to touch me. I'm still friendly, and good with dogs and with other cats. Maggie, the beautiful black girl, was found in the back yard of a disused building, heavily pregnant and terrified. She only had one kitten but afterwards was very poorly and took weeks to fully recover. Her kitten found a home with the vet nurse who cared for Maggie and she slowly became my friend. We're both neutered and 2 years old. We would like a quiet, indoor, very cat friendly home with an understanding owner. In time, we might get used to handling, but we'd like an owner who can respect our space if we don't, and make a lifelong commitment to us.
DYLAN & MAGGIE are at New Beginnings Cat Rehoming, Gateshead. Rehoming in Northumberland, Gateshead and Newcastle.
