Rescue cat Binx, at RSPCA Friern Barnet, needs a new homeHello, my name is Binx.  I'm a gorgeous black-coated boy of around eight years old, who came into rescue after being found abandoned in an empty house.  Despite the tough time I've had I've retained my trust in humans and my lovely temperament, and I really deserve a caring permanent home.  I've come out of my shell in my foster home and have shown what a terrific chap I am; I love adult human company and playing with my toys, but would also enjoy access to a garden.  A quiet home with adults only (or older children who won't frighten me) and without other pets will be perfect for me.  I am neutered, and waiting patiently for my fabulous forever home... Could it be with you?

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.

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.

Rescue Cat Tiger from Battersea at Old Windsor needs a homeHello, my name’s Tiger, I’m a 12 year old tabby and white girl looking for my forever home. Although I can be a bit shy at first, once I know you and trust you, I’m very affectionate. I’m looking for new owners who are at home a lot of the day, I love human company and even better a comfy lap to curl up on. I could stay curled up on your lap all day if you’d let me! I’m also hoping my new owners are well practised in spoiling and pampering cats, well more importantly me! I can go outside but I’m not really that adventurous or brave so I’d be fine as either an indoor cat or I could have a potter about in the garden if you’re there to open the door for me and I wouldn’t go far. I’ve been neutered and would be looking for a home with no other cats or dogs. I’m not sure about a home with children, but do ask the lovely people here. I’m a lovely little lady and I’d make someone a loving and affectionate companion and hopefully you’ve got a nice warm lap with space just for me. I’ll be waiting here to hear from you!

Rescue Cat Bob from Battersea at Old Windsor,Berkshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, London West, Surrey, needs a homeHello, my name’s Bob, I’m a huge cat but am a gentle giant. I’m 7 years old and have been neutered. I’m a rather handsome chap I think with my gorgeous green eyes and shiny black coat. I’ve come on here to find me a home where I’ll be spoiled and pampered, fussed and generally be the centre of attention! To start with, I may seem quiet and a bit reserved but that’s just until I get to know you and once I do, I’ll adore being stroked, groomed and being fussed and you’ll know how happy I am because I dribble with joy and purr non stop! I don’t mind my owners working full time but I would want a cat flap access to outside so that I can explore and sunbathe. I’m fine living with children but I don’t Like sharing my space with other cats so no cats please and I’d be best not living in an area with a high population of cats. I’m not sure about dogs. So, do you think you could give me the attention and fussing I’m hoping for? Please get in touch soon because I’m waiting to hear from you!

Rescue Cat Enzo from Cat & Kitten Rescue, London, needs a homeHello, my name’s Enzo, I’m ginger and white and around 7 years old. I came into the rescue as a stray, I arrived a bit world weary and very thin and my fur wasn’t looking it’s best. It’s taking time but I am starting to put some weight on and my coat is starting to look better - what it and me needs though is lots of love and attention. I love being groomed and I think I’ll look amazing once I know I have a home of my own and someone to love me. I still find that I need a bit of reassurance every now and then so I think I might be best in a home with no young children. I’m fine living with other cats but not sure about dogs. After the life of a stray, I’m really enjoying the cosy places of a home and love the sofa, watching the world go by from the window is another hobby of mine at the moment. I’d still quite like a garden to stroll in though. I’ll go to my new home neutered, partially vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and deflead. If you think you could be the person I’m waiting for, you can come and meet me at my foster home in Northwood, just get in touch on the contacts below

Rescue cats Rose and Kitty, from Celia Hammond Animal Trust in Lewisham, need a homeWe are Rose and Kitty, a semi-feral tabby and black pair of girls, aged about four and looking for a new human to watch over us to make sure we stay out of trouble! We have lived indoors and have learnt to trust some human friends in the past, but would be equally happy working outdoors to keep any pesky rodents under control! Our new friends would need to be patient and caring, with an understanding of cats that have lived as strays or a largely outdoor lifestyle. We can be shy but equally are happy to trust humans who treat us kindly, so would be perfect for anyone looking for an always-willing rodent patrol, or just a pair of independent cats in their lives. We've been neutered so are ready and waiting for the right home. Could we be the right pair of pussycats for you?
ROSE & KITTY are at Celia Hammond Animal Trust - Lewisham. Rehoming in West London, East London & West Kent.

Rescue Cat Jackie from Stokey Cats and Dogs, Hackney, London needs a homeHello, my name is Jackie. I am an eleven year old, calico & white lass and I am neutered. I had a home, but then a baby came along and I had to leave. I am an independent girl, I love long naps and prawns; I will be very grateful if any prawns are offered to me; but I am not really a lap cat. I am not keen on being picked up or stroked, so an adult only home for me, where people won’t expect more of me than I can handle would be purrfect! I would like a home with a garden and maybe a scratching post, so that if the need takes me I can scratch or a toy to play with sometimes would be nice. Really, if you want the honest truth, I just want someone who will love me - just the way I am. If you think you could be that person then please get in touch.

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!

Rescue cat Lara from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, West London and Surrey, needs a home 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!

Rescue cat Ella, from Mitcham Cats Protection Homing Centre, needs a homeMeow! I'm Ella, and I'm very pleased to meet you! You're in for such a treat if you take me home with you; I'm just the sweetest kitty that you'll ever meet (or so they say!) - my favourite way of saying hello is to weave excitedly around your legs! It's probably no surprise then that I'm an inquisitive puss and love to explore my surroundings; a home with a good garden would be perfect for adventures! Not to mention those long summer evenings curled up beside you in the garden, bliss! On those colder nights you'll find me curled up in your lap, snoozing like there's no tomorrow. When I'm not snoozing or asking for tickles, I love to play! Even at five years old I still run crazily around after my feather toy, you could say I haven't really grown up yet! Although still kittenish in some ways, I have been neutered so that I don't end up with kittens of my own - who wants that when you can be destroying Da Bird to your heart's content!! For you to truly appreciate my awesomeness, I think I need a home to myself, without other cats, dogs or children. Like all Cats Protection kitties, I am microchipped and fully up to date with all my injections for your peace of mind; plus, with my lovely soft Felix coat and little pink nose, how could you possibly not love me? If you think I might be the cat for you, please get in touch - I can't wait to meet you!
