Angel and Seraphina, rescue cats from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, need a homeHello human! My name is Angel, and this is my adorable daughter Seraphina; isn't she lovely? Can you see the family resemblence? We're a very smart pair of black and white kitties, who'd like a loving new home together. I'm only two years old and my daughter is a little over 1 year, so we are still very playful and young at heart. We are both just hoping to put our past life behind us, which I spent living as a pregnant stray amongst scary other cats, and Seraphina spent having to compete against my three other kittens for attention. Fortunately she was always my favourite so didn't have too many problems there! I now look forward to spending the rest of my life in her company, while also being able to keep a watchful eye on her! We are both a bit timid, which is to be expected given our history, but once we are settled into a new home we will soon overcome any nerves given our young age. There is a big world to explore so we'd love access to the outside, but would rather not have to compete with other pets...I think we've had quite enough of that! We have both been neutered, chipped and vaccinated, so are ready and waiting to meet some friendly new people!
ANGEL & SERAPHINA 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 Angel & Seraphina on Cat Chat, thank you!

Rescue cat Sally from Battersea at Old Windsor, needs homeHi, I'm Sally and I'm a sweet-natured, neutered girl with a lot of love to give. I'll need a little time to settle in and feel comfy, but my new humans will be rewarded with the love and fun I bring with me. So yes, despite being 11 years old, I am lively and playful, and the rescue people think I have the cutest miaow ever! I'd like access to outdoors and a home with older children only and no other pets please. Above all I just want to be loved and feel safe and at home. Please say you'll have a think about giving me that chance.

Rescue cat Benny from Battersea at Old Windsor, Windsor, needs a homeWell hello there, I’m Benny, so pleased to make your acquaintance. I’m currently on the look out for my forever home, if you would be so kind as to let me tell you a little bit about myself and the home that I’m looking for. I’m a ten year old black and white male. As the folks at the rescue will tell you, I’m a sweet and sociable chap yet a little sensitive so I’m looking for a quiet home to settle into and increase my confidence. In time I will reward your patience with plenty of love and affection. I generally like to potter around the house but I do enjoy having access to a garden so that I can have a leisurely stroll and sunbathe in the warmer months. I would happily live with older children but I would prefer to be your only pet. Of course I have been neutered and whatnot. So If you think you might be able to offer me the home that I’m looking for then come and have a chinwag with the folks at the rescue and, if everything’s tickety-boo, I’ll be there with bell’s on!

Rescue Cat Tipsy from Cat & Kitten Rescue, Watford, needs a homeHi there, my name is Tipsy. I was unfortunately evicted when my human moved to a new house. This initially made me a tad grumpy, however, I quickly got over that and I’m now “the perfect cat” as my fosterer will happily tell you! I’m a one year old ginger lad (bit of a looker as you can see!) on the lookout for a home with access to outdoors. I want to be your only pet please and don’t really fancy living with children. Of course I come with all of the usuals: neutered, vet-checked, microchipped, worm and flea treated, fully vaccinated and also prescription products and four weeks of pet insurance. Come meet me at my foster home in Hemel Hempstead and you can see just how lovely I am!
TIPSY is at Cat & Kitten Rescue, Rehoming from bases in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and West London.

Rescue cat Pepe, from Feline Friends London, Hackney, needs a homeHiya, my name is Pepe. I am a cuddly black and white neutered chap of five years old. I can be a bit reserved at first, but in a quiet, calm home without other pets I think I can relax and let my guard down. I have previously lived with a small human so I might be able to do so again, as long as they play nicely with me! I'm certainly looking forward to lots of fuss and hugs once I get to know you; I love nothing more than curling up and purring away on a nice comfy lap! I also love my food and quite happily hoover up my daily heart medication (aren't I a good boy!). Sadly I will need regular vet visits to keep tabs on my heart, but only once a year (phew!). When I'm not at the vet or eating, I love the outside and birdwatching like any other cat. Being a bigger lad, I will need a safe outdoor space to strut my stuff in, and occasional sunbathing of course. When I'm inside, sometimes I let my inner kitten get the best of me - no scrunched up bits of paper are safe from this cat! If you'd like to get to know me, please get in touch - it might be the start of something beautiful.

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 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!
MAGIC, LUCINDA AND ZOE are at Celia Hammond Trust - Lewisham, London. Rehoming All SE London and BR (Bromley) Postcodes. Also N.Kent (Welling, Bexley, Sidcup, Swanley, Dartford), Croydon and SW London (SW8, SW9, SW2, SW11, SW4, SW12, SW16, SW17)..

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.

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.
NOEL MCFLUFFY 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.

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.

Rescue cat Lara from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, Hounslow, West London, Surrey, needs a homeI'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!
