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 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 cats Magic, Lucinda & Zoe from Celia Hammond Animal Trust, Lewisham, London, Kent, need a homeHello, we’re three semi-feral cats who are seeking an outdoor home and we’re hoping someone out there could help? We’re called Magic, Lucinda and Zoe and are black with Zoe being the tabby one. We’re three girls and are 2 years old, we’ve also been neutered. We’re hoping for somewhere like a stables, smallholding or a garden home and somewhere with access to a dry shelter too. We’d need to be fed every day with some good quality cat food but in return for doing that, we’d earn our keep as an effective rodent patrol! We’d be fine if you had children, we’d also be fine with other cats or with dogs. We have paws crossed that somewhere purrfect will come along with someone in need of a purrfect rodent patrol - because if it does then we’re your girls!

Rescue cats Mack & Toshi from RSPCA Middlesex North West & South Herts, Hertfordshire, West London, need a homeHello there, we are Mack & Toshi and we are sweet natured, black & white girls; we are around a year old and are both neutered. We came in from a large multi cat household and were very shy when e first arrived, but now thanks to lots of one to one attention we are blossoming. I, Mack, am the most confident and will wind around your legs when it is time for food or treats or just when I want to be the centre of attention; I also have a heart murmur, it doesn't need any treatment for now and doesn't affect me at all. Toshi keeps to herself mainly but will appear for food and treats. We love to play and have lots of fun and are looking for experienced humans and an adult only home so that we can continue to develop our confidence. If you have a garden and plenty of room in your heart then please get in touch.

Rescue Cats Sonny & Cher, RSPCA - Middlesex North West & South Herts, Harrow needs a homeHello, we’re Sonny and Cher a pair of semi long haired, female cats. Sonny is ginger and I’m black and we’re 11 years old. Don’t let our ages put you off though because we’ve had a clean bill of health, we’re neutered and have even had de-matting and dentals done too! We came into care because our owner sadly died but we’re not used to being handled and are very nervous. We’re hoping for a home where we can live independent lives, perhaps a cat flap that we could come and go through or perhaps if you had a shelter or out building we could use. With being so nervous we’re best not living with children but could live with other cats or even a cat friendly dog. We’re hoping that someone lovely out there will be able to help, if you think you have the purrfect place for us please get in touch?

Rescue cat Fufu, at at Cat & Kitten Rescue, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and West London, needs a new homeHello, my name is Fufu. I’m a gorgeous tabby and white lady of just eighteen months old, and when I’m not relaxing with my feet in the air I’m searching for a loving permanent home. If you’re looking for a wonderfully laid back furry companion who’d rather curl up happily in a comfy basket than climb up your curtains, then you’ve found me! I’m calm enough to share a home with other friendly felines or sensible children, and at the moment I’m enjoying life as a pampered indoor cat so much that I’ve shown no interest in venturing outside. I have been spayed, and will go to my new home vet-checked, microchipped and with my vaccinations under way. If you think that you may be able to offer me a lifetime of care, affection and lovely places to snooze, then why not come and meet me?

Rescue Cat Fenton, Cat & Kitten Rescue, Borehamwood needs a homeHello! My name is Fenton and I’m a handsome, black and white 2 year old boy who’s looking for a home to call my own. I came into the rescue as a stray and I’ve been living with my foster mum in Borehamwood for now. She’s really lovely, but I’d love a home all of my own and with my own family to love too. I’m okay with other cats but am happy to be the only cat in the home and I’m not sure about dogs. I’m fine with children though. Having had plenty of adventures as a stray, I’m actually quite content being indoors, safe and well fed and have decided that cuddling up to my human is my new favourite pastime! So, I would be happy to be an indoor cat but would also be happy to potter about in the garden on sunny days. I’ll go to my home neutered, vet checked, microchipped, wormed and deflead, vaccinated and I also come with 4 weeks introductory insurance with Pet Plan. I know, a handsome chap like me and all that too…how can you resist?? You can’t? Then please get in touch on the contacts below and I’ll be here waiting to meet you!

Rescue cat Shamier, from Feline Friends London, Hackney, needs a homeHello there! Will you be my friend? My name is Shamier, and I'm a black-coated girl who has been through some exceptionally tough times, despite only being two years old. When I was aged six months I was put out on the street on my own, having to fend for myself and scavenge food from where I could. Luckily a kind old lady started feeding me, but only once a day, so that when I was found I was all skin and bones, dirty and had been treated very badly by some cruel humans. That experience, as you can imagine, has led to me being scared of most people, and due to having to fight with other cats on the street for food I also steer well clear of them. It will take me a lot of time to get used to people again, and while I am currently afraid of big open spaces like gardens, I would love a secure place to be able to enjoy the sun and get out when I do inevitably come out of my shell. My ideal owner would be someone that treats me kindly, has the patience to allow me to hide in a secure spot until I feel comfortable to approach them, and to wait until I am willing to share my own love and affection with them. I've been neutered and would be able to live with children over the age of six.

Rescue Cat Lucas, Feline Friends London, London needs a homeHello! I’m a handsome white and black gentleman on the lookout for a new home. I was born in Madrid over in Spain and have been a bit of a travelling cat thanks to my owner travelling. I loved it until the last plane trip we had over here to England, took me ages to recover and I vowed then that I wasn’t travelling again. So, when my owner found out that she had to work abroad, I thought I’d find myself a loving new home and keep my paws on the ground! I’m 14 years old, neutered and although I find I’m sleeping a bit more, I love playing with ropes and hunt the hand behind a cloth, I’ll show you how to play! I am looking for a lovely garden cos I love being outside in the garden. Although I like to take my time to get to know you, I’m very affectionate and love my human to be there with some cuddles when I come back in from the garden. I’d rather not live with children and don’t want to share with dogs but I’m used to another cat so if you have one that would be fine. What do you think, have you the tranquil home and garden I’m looking for and cuddles to share?

Well hello there! I’m Noel, or Noel McFluffy as they all call me. I am 5 years old, and I was brought into care after living rough for some time on one of the local estates. Thankfully, at last, I am now safe and warm in foster care, just waiting for someone to take me home. The type of home I need is one with access to outdoors, because that’s what I’ve been used to. And I would like to be an only pet in my new home, so that all the attention is for me, that would be great. I am a little bit hissy and grumpy at the moment (and who wouldn't be after forced neutering), but deep inside I really am a lovely boy.  Have you seen my photo, and do you like my whiskers? I have got mega whiskers I have, and all this fluffy fur, which can be all yours if you like. Don't miss a chance, and do get in touch with us so we can meet up, and you find out lots more about me.

Rescue cat Arya from Catcuddles Sanctuary, Enfield, West Kent, London, needs a homeHello, my name is Arya. I am four years old, just the right combination of black and white and stunning yellow-green eyes; oh and I am neutered too. I have been looking for my forever home for a while now, so I thought I would try out the internet to find you. I am looking for a patient, experienced new human as I get scared by new people and sounds; once I am settled in and get to know you I do love company. I am an independent lady, who enjoys a play. I am hoping to find an adult only home, where I can explore outside once I am settled, and where I am the only pet. If you are looking into my eyes and could be falling in love make sure you get in touch.

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 Frankie from Stokey Cats and Dogs, Hackney, London needs a homeI've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hi there, my name’s Frankie and as you can see I am a handsome lad. I am around 3 years old and neutered. I am a big lover of feather toys and chilling on the bed, oh and food… especially chicken, mmmm. I am a little bit shy, but if you give me a chance to settle in and get to know you I have so much love to give. I was found as a stray, fighting for food and territory with lots of other cats that weren’t wanted, just like me. I was so frightened when I was picked up that I froze with my heart beating ten to the dozen, but my fosterer has won me round with lots of love and plenty of patience too (well, that and the chicken!) I have already been in foster for a year and I would love to not have to wait much longer for a home of my very own. I would ideally like an adult home, or maybe with older children who will understand that I will need time; a garden would be fab and I could live with cats but no dogs for me thank you. If you have a little room in your heart for me get in touch as soon as you can.

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!
