Rescue Cats Mickey & Minnie from Cats Protection - Hendon, Finchley, & Mill Hill, Hendon needs a homeHello, I’m Mickey and I’m here with my best friend Minnie. We’re a black and black and white pair of cats somewhere around 18 months to 2 years. We were found together as strays and although we’re not brother and sister, I look after Minnie as though she was my sister. We’re very close and are never far from each other so we’re looking for someone with a heart and home big enough for both of us. We’re both a little timid although very sweet and given time to settle into a forever home, we’ll become more outgoing. Probably best that we don’t go to a home with young children though. We’d love a garden to have a prowl in. We’re not sure about sharing with dogs or other cats. We’ve been neutered and are really hoping to be spotted by someone special and with a heart full of love - could that be you?

Rescue cat Bacardi, from Battersea at Old Windsor, needs a homeHi there stranger, my name is Bacardi. Contrary to what my name suggests, I'm not a big drinker and actually prefer a bowl of water and lots of treats. Well, you tend to want a quieter life as you get older don't you! At 12 years old, a comfortable, quiet home with lots of warm cosy spots for me to curl up and snooze in would be perfect for me. Although I would describe myself as an independent sort of chap, I am affectionate when I want to be, and enjoy a fuss and a tickle on my terms. That being said, I would prefer to be the only pet in the household, and older children only please - young humans make too much noise, and I need my beauty sleep! When the weather allows, I'd like the freedom to loll about in the garden and enjoy the infrequent British sun, so access to a catflap is a must. I am neutered, chipped and all the rest, so if you have the space in your home and heart for a handsome tabby boy, do get in touch - I can't wait to meet you.
BACARDI is at Battersea at Old Windsor. Rehoming in Berkshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, West London & Surrey.

Hello, my name is John Craven. I’m a large and handsome three year old black cat who was rescued from a miserable life of fending for myself on the streets, and I’m looking for a loving permanent home of my very own. My rescuers think that I’ve been treated badly in the past, and this means I can occasionally get a bit grumpy (especially if I don’t get my own way!) - and being a big kitten at heart I can also get over-excited when playing. Therefore I’m looking for an experienced, adult-only home with kind human friends who will be able to understand when I’ve had enough fuss. I love being around people and will make a terrific, affectionate and talkative companion. A home without other pets, with access to a garden in a semi-rural area, would be perfect for me. I have been neutered. If you’re looking to offer a caring forever home to a comical, friendly, lovable rogue, then please get in touch!

Rescue cat Tilly from RSPCA - Middlesex North West, needs homeHello there my dear, I'm Tilly - thanks for stopping by. As you can see I'm a rather pretty shade of brindle-tortoiseshell. I'm 9 years old which is a sensible age for a cat, athough I can't promise to be sensible always - as I'm partial to chasing my favorite catnip mouse round now and again! So, I'm keen to find my forever home, as the truth is I don't like being in rescue, I don't like being confined, or the noises of other cats. It makes me a bit stressed. I'm actually a purry puss who has the ocassional bout of grumpiness as befits a lady of my age. I'm an independant lass and know what I want. I would like access to a garden but I'd be happy to potter and entertain myself when your at work. I'm an affectionate soul at heart who will come for a fuss when your around as you tell me about your day. I would like to go to an adult home with no other cats. I'd really love to settle down in a proper home and the only condition I make is that I can bring my favourite catnip mouse with me!

Rescue cat Molly from Feline Friends London, needs homeHello my dear, my name is Molly. I'm a very affectionate sweet natured, neutered, girl whose favourite things are cuddling and being brushed. I love pottering in the garden but I don't really stray from it. I love attention and company and the rescue people think I have the cutest little miaow! I need a very special human to give me a happy life again. I'm about 13 years old and I'm diabetic. Still reading? Hooray I could jump for joy! Now, I require insulin twice daily, I accept the injections without any problem. I even have an insulin pen to make it easier for anyone else doing the injections. My condition is stable and the vet sees me every 3-4 months to check sugar levels. I also have colitis. In spite of my illnesses I am a happy little cat and would not mind being the only cat in the household I think. The rescue people think I could make someone very happy if they could offer me my forever home. I know its a big ask but I believe that there is a special human waiting for me out there.

Rescue Cats Basil & Bertie from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, London needs a homeHi 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 Zara, from Cat & Kitten Rescue, needs a homeMeow! My name is Zara, a pretty black and white girl looking for a home where I can be the centre of attention as the only pet. I would prefer not to be in a noisy environment, so no young children either please - they can be a bit scary sometimes! I am just 18 months old so a new owner would have a massive impact on my life. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference and to be able to shape my development over the coming years. If you adopt me you will quickly discover that I have a lovely personality, enjoying cuddles and affection as well as exploring. I would need access to the outside so that I can burn off my extra energy and stay occupied if I get bored and am the ideal cat for humans seeking a loving, characterful and affectionate feline. I have been neutered, vaccinated and checked over by a vet, so am ready and waiting for any interested humans to come and visit me!
ZARA is at Cat & Kitten Rescue, Rehoming from bases in Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and West London.

Rescue Cat Frankie from Stokey Cats and Dogs, Hackney, London needs a homeHi 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.
FRANKIE is at Stokey Cats... and dogs, Hackney. Rehoming in East and West London. To make an enquiry please call: 07408 873811 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Frankie on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Ffion from Cat and Kitten Rescue, Watford, needs a homeOh, hello there, my name is Ffion and I am a neutered, 18 month old, tortoiseshell girl. Well, now that all the important stuff is covered I can tell you my story. I came in with my kittens, I had given birth in a garden which wasn’t really ideal. I raised my kittens and although I was a little shy for a while, I have forged a bond with everyone here and really come into my own; everyone here says I am delightful; we all have fingers and paws crossed that I will find a home soon. I could fit into a family home; I haven’t had too much to do with other cats or dogs, so I am not sure about them; maybe I could be your only pet. I have my bags packed and am ready to go, all I need now is someone to fall in love with me. I have been vaccinated and chipped and am being fostered in Borehamwood. What are you waiting for, pick up the phone or email as soon as you can.
FFION is at Cat & Kitten Rescue, Rehoming from bases in Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and West London.

Rescue Cat Pepper from Feline Friends London, needs a homeHello there, my name’s Pepper and I think I’m just lovely - I have a beautiful sleek black coat making me a most handsome chap. I’m 16 years old and have been neutered. I have developed an over-active thyroid which I’m currently on medication for and as a result I’m extremely grumpy when I’m hungry and have developed a lovely demanding meow! I am however always happy to receive gentle, loving attention from anyone and basically am extremely happy eating and being cuddled! I’m quite happy to sleep, eat, go outside and generally ignore most of what goes on around me! I’ve been told I’m a very amusing cat who has bags of character, I guess you’ll have to meet me to find that out! I’m hoping for someone who has a garden and who could give me lots of love and attention, if you think that’s you please get in touch!
PEPPER is at Feline Friends London. Rehoming across London. To make an enquiry please call: 07786 380572 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Pepper on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Lara from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, West London and Surrey, needs a home I've been waiting over a year... Please pick me! Hello, my name is Lara. 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!
LARA is 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 Lara on Cat Chat, thank you!
