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 cat Fluffy, at The Catcuddles Sanctuary, Enfield, needs a new homeHello, my name (and my coat) is Fluffy.  I’m a gorgeous black and white neutered chap of about six years old, and if you haven’t already fallen in love with me then just take another look at my heart-meltingly big amber eyes!  After fending for myself as a stray for a long time I was quite nervous when I came into rescue, but every day of regular meals, affection and care is helping me become more relaxed and confident.  I love being stroked, giving gentle head butts, and am even happy to have my long fur groomed.  A permanent home of my very own, with access to a safe garden once I’ve completely settled in, would be absolutely wonderful.  Could you offer me the fabulous future I deserve?

Rescue Cats Polly, Milo & Marvin, Celia Hammond Animal Trust - Lewisham, needs a homeHello, we’re a ready made family of cats just waiting for our special forever home to find us. I’m Polly, the eldest at around 8 years old, I’m a pretty tabby and white girl. I’m a lovely quiet cat and enjoy being stroked. Next is Milo, a tabby boy of around 2 years, he’s the most shy out of all of us and is wary of being touched yet and last but not least we have Marvin who is around 18 months old and is a tabby and white boy. He’s very playful and loves people to play games with him, he’s slightly wary of being stroked but that will come the more confident he gets. We were left behind when our previous family moved away. We’re hoping to find an adult only home with people who are experienced with cats and who will give us the love, time and patience to allow us to grow in confidence and become the friendly cats we want to be. We’ve been neutered and would like a garden to explore and play in. We’d be best in a home with no children or dogs but could share with other cats. If you think you might be able to help us please get in touch on the contacts below.

Rescue Cat Larry from Stokey Cats... and dogs, Hackney needs a homeHello, my name’s Larry, I’m a sleek, black male cat who’s looking for a home I can call my own. I’m not sure of my age, perhaps around 8 years old and I’ve been neutered. I was found lying in the middle of a pavement and people were worried as to why I kept lying there. I had a deep abscess on my face which was making me feel a bit unwell and lethargic. The abscess healed really quickly once I was treated and I regained my handsome looks (even if they did think I was a female to start with…cheek!) I’m very friendly although I’m not sure about living with children and I wouldn’t want to share with dogs. I could share with other cats although I wouldn’t want to interact with them too much and play time would have to be on my terms. If you’ve got a position for a mini black panther to share your house, pick me, I’d be perfect!

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?

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 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 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!
