Rescue cat Hoot from National Animal Welfare Trust - Hertfordshire, Watford, needs homeHello my name is Hoot and I am a lovely, neutered, friendly boy that just can’t get enough attention. I love having cuddles and will tap you with my paw if you stop stroking me! Despite my age (10 years old) I still love to play with my fishing rod toy and I adore my food. I am looking for a home with adults or families who have children aged 8 years and above. Unfortunately I have a medical condition so I cannot live with other cats and can’t have access to the outside so I would be perfect for a family who are looking for a housecat. I cannot live with dogs as they scare me. My medical condition does not stop me from running around, playing with toys and living my life to the fullest. If you could give me the home I wish for and a chance of happiness, I would show my thanks with all the love I have to give.

Rescue cat Charlie, from Harlow, Epping Forest & District Cats Protection, needs a homeHiya! My name is Charlie, and I'm very pleased to meet you. I am a unique black and white boy who loves the outdoors, but, having spent a bit too long roughing it in the wild, I'm now on the hunt for a cosy warm home. I adore affection and falling asleep on a human's lap, and would be perfect for anyone looking for a lovely, relaxed customer. I would like a home with access to the outdoors, but am not sure if I could live with children or another pet. I'm all up to date with my shots and have been neutered, so I'm ready to go! I can't wait to meet you.

Rescue Cat Missy from Cool Cats at National Animal Welfare Trust - Hertfordshire, Watford, needs a homeHi there, I’m Missy and I’m a cute little black and white girl who’s 5 years old and I’ve been neutered. I love having cuddles, playing and snuggling in warm cosy places. If you’re good at cuddling, have excellent waggle the catnip mousey skills and lots of snuggly warm places for me to have a nap, you could be just who I’m looking for! Ooh, while I remember, Dreamies are my favourite treats…thought I’d better let you know that so you could get some in for me! I’m looking for a home with adults or families with older children and I like having all the attention to myself so I’d like to be your only pet please. I’m quite stressed out here and am not showing myself to my best potential but if you gave me a home, with time I’d settle in and become the happy, cuddly girl I know I am. I’d also love it if you had a garden for me to explore, once I’m settled in. If you think you couldn’t possibly miss out in having me as your best friend, get in touch on the contacts below!

Rescue cat Max from Cats Protection - Welwyn, Hatfield and District, Welwyn, Hertfordshire, needs a homeHello; my name is Max and I am a 12 years young, neutered tabby cat. I am a confident and friendly chap, and I find myself looking for a new home. I have lived with children and would be happy to be a family cat; I quite enjoy the fusses and I do like to have a little chat with anyone who will listen especially around dinner time, and I am an excellent ear for someone who needs a companion. Now I understand that I might not be the right cat for everyone and that some people may be put off because I have reached double digits, but do remember that we mature cats will not climb up your curtains, but may climb onto your lap and into your heart. I am hoping that the right person for me is out there, and if it might be you, that you will arrange to meet me, see my handsome features and fall in love.

Rescue Cat Kiara from Battersea at Old Windsor, Berkshire needs a homeHello, my name’s Kiara pleased to meet you! I’m a beautiful 7 year old, neutered, Bengal girl who’s looking for a home hopefully with someone who knows what it’s like to own a Bengal. I didn’t really get on with the other cat in my previous home but I’m a friendly, playful and interactive girl. I’m needing some time spent on me and somewhere with plenty of space so that I can realise my full potential as an active and inquisitive girl and bond with my new owner. I’m looking for a home with no young children and with no other pets. I’m not used to busy or main roads so I’d be happier in a quieter location with lots of green spaces to allow me the chance to hunt and explore safely. I might take a little while to settle in and get to know you but I know that once I do you’ll wonder how you lived without me in your life!

Rescue cat Polly, from Cat Welfare, Luton, needs a home.Hello there! My name is Polly, and I am a 2 year old, cute black, shorthaired girl.  I am here looking for a new, forever home, as I have been waiting for quite a long time now. At the moment I am living with a fosterer, and I share my home with other cats there, but I would really prefer my new home to be a home without other cats. I don’t mean to, it’s just that I can get a bit stressed around other cats and then I start to bully them a bit. I am fine with children though, and could probably live with a dog. I would just like a safe garden to play in, and lots of love from my new family.  I have been chipped, vaccinated and spayed, so I am all ready to go.  If you think you could have the home for me, then do contact the rescue and we can meet up!

Rescue cat Ernie from Cats Protection N Herts, needs homeHello there, I'm Ernie and I'm a sweet, gentle boy who has had a really tough life. I was picked up as a stray in a terrible condition, hyperthyroid and weak with severe dental issues, I was in so much pain and underweight. The kind rescue people sorted out my teeth and even cared enough to have a vet operate on my thyroid. I'm much better now and have gained weight but sadly I have been diagnosed with FIV and diabetes. My diabetes can be managed by insulin but FIV means I need to be an only and an indoor cat. I'm 10 years old so I know it will take a special kind of human to have enough love in their hearts to let a cat like me live out their years in comfort and kindness. I'm a gentle, sweet natured boy despite everything and my wants are simple; someone to care about me, a warm bed and regular meals. Please say you'll have a think about it.

Rescue cat Bailey from Cats Protection - North Hertfordshire, Stevenage, needs a homeHello, my name is Bailey. I am a 6 year old gentle giant, I am black and white and have been neutered. I am looking for an indoor home as I am FIV+ you see. Now, this isn’t as scary as it sounds and there is lots of information if you follow the links below. I am a little shy when I first meet people and because of my shyness I may give a little hiss when I am first approached; really all I need is a little time to get to know you and then I will become your very affectionate, best friend; especially if you are good at stroking. If you are the person to see past my initial shyness and could offer me a loving home please do get in touch; I have been here quite a while you see, and I am hoping I will be the next cat chosen.

Rescue cat Frodo from Cats Protection - Harlow, Epping Forest & District needs homeOh hello there, I am Frodo and like my namesake, I too have an important quest: to find a lovely human or two and a forever home. I'm a friendly purry boy looking for a second chance in life. I've been here a while and been overlooked.I am 9 which isn't old these days, just like 50 is still young for humans! I'm in good health and I have a lovely glossy coat which may take a wee bit of grooming. I would prefer to be your only cat in a home without young children please. In return I'll bring affection and warmth. How can you say no to that? Of course I've been neutered a while ago now. So, let me see.. Neutered - yes, friendly - yes, and purry - Yes, Yes,Yes! What reason could there be not to adopt me?

Rescue Cat Bruce from Homeless Cat Rescue, Luton needs a homeHello! Bruce here, I’m a 3-4 year old, neutered, black and white boy. I know what you're thinking…what’s a handsome chap like myself doing looking for a home? I’m wondering the same thing and reckon it’s just that my awesomeness may be keeping people at bay but just so you know, I can be incredibly cute at times too and once you’re used to my ways, I’m really loving and adorable. I don’t like being picked up and also don’t like my body stroked. Also, if you could not stroke my head while I’m washing myself that would be brilliant. When I’m not washing myself however, stroke my head to hear me purr loudly. I love company and enjoy supervising you and if I feel you may have slept in, I’ll give you the gentlest of taps on your face and if that doesn’t wake you will rub you and purr, I can’t think of a better way to waken up can you?! I love my food and treats and I do like to play. I enjoy going outside for a prowl so would love a garden. I’m best in a family without any children. I’d rather not share with any other cats but I’m not sure about dogs. I bet you can’t resist me now can you, the contact details are below I can’t wait to meet you!
