Rescue cat Roxy, at RSPCA Durham, needs a home.Hello, my name is Roxy. I am a cute, 2 year old, black female, looking for a new home to call my own. I am a very loveable, forward natured girl, that’s because I just love giving, and receiving affection. I have been neutered, and had my first course of vaccinations. So I am all ready to go. If you are looking for a friendly, loving female cat to join your home, then please get in touch with us at the rescue. They will tell you more about me, and we can meet up for a cuddle!

Rescue Cat Chaplin from Cats Protection Wear Valley and Darlington, Durham, needs a homeHello, my name is Chaplin and I am a handsome black and white chap.  I am around 5 years old and neutered.  At the moment I can be a bit of a grump and take a swipe at you; the fantastic people here are hoping that being in a home of my own, where I can just be me and with no other pets or young children, will help me calm down and not do it. I am not going to be a cat who wants fusses for a long time, if ever and my new human will need to understand that about me. I have had a hard life, which has left me as FIV+, too many fights over girls, food and territory I’m afraid; so surely I deserve these home comforts people keep talking about.  I have my paws crossed that you will think I am just the puss for you. To find out about FIV: Visit Cat Chat’s FIV information page, or the FIV Owner's Club on our friendly forum.

Rescue cat Coffee from Strawberry Persian Cat Rescue, Durham,Hi there, my name is Coffee and I am an 8 year old, handsome, Lilac British shorthair boy.  Sadly, I find myself in need of a new home; I am loving and friendly and thoroughly enjoy a cuddle.  I am neutered and have had a full dental and my vaccinations are up to date; I have also had tests for FIV and FeLV and they were both negative.  I could happily share my new home with another cat, I would rather not live with a dog or any children younger than 8.  I would love to find a home with a safe garden so that I can have roam. If you think I could be the cat for you, get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue Cat Terry from Saltburn Animal Rescue Association, Redcar, needs a homeHello! I’m Terry, I’m a handsome, male, black cat who’s got lots of love to give and I’m looking for someone to share it with! I was found as a stray but I’m very affectionate and if I think you’re ignoring me, I can be quite vocal in getting your attention! I’m about 8 years old and am looking for an indoor home with an experienced cat owner and one where I’d be your only pet (and I can get all your attention!) I’m not sure about living with children but have a word with the lovely people here and they’ll be able to help you. I’ve been neutered and am in good health although I have tested positive for FIV although I should be able to live a happy and full life and I also come with a pension plan when I find my new home. For more information on FIV (Visit our FIV information page, or visit the FIV Owner's Club on our friendly forum)

Rescue Cat Binksy from Pawz for Thought, Sunderland, needs a homeHi there, my name’s Binksy and I’m a lovely little, black and white girl, 10 years old and I’m hoping to find someone who can help me out. I’ve unfortunately found myself in care as the circumstances changed with my last owner and I found myself as part of a multi cat household. I was really struggling living there, I like to be the only cat (I’m not sure about dogs either!) I have to say, I’m feeling a wee bit out of sorts as my world’s been turned upside down with all the changes! I’m a friendly girl though and I do like to pop out of my wee house to greet anyone who comes to visit and even better if they give me a head rub - I really enjoy those. I’ve been neutered and am crossing my paws here that someone falls in love with me and picks me for their very own!
BINKSY is at Pawz for Thought, Sunderland. Rehoming in Durham, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear.

Rescue cat Pixie from Consett Cats, County Durham, needs a homeHello everybody, my name is Pixie. I am an 18 month old, neutered, tortie and white girl and I have found myself searching for my forever home. You can often find me playing with the kittens at the rescue; I had to grow up too soon as I was a mum at a young age, so everyone here thinks I am making up for lost time. I am friendly and will let you stroke me, but sometimes I can be wary; so you will need to understand that I may well take time for me to settle in anywhere. I would happily live with other cats; I haven’t had much to do with dogs or children, so I am not sure whether I could live with them. If you think you could give me the chance to be your furry friend, please get in touch as soon as you can.
PIXIE is at Consett Cat Rescue. Rehoming in Co. Durham. To make an enquiry please call: 07553 344 465 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Pixie on Cat Chat, thank you!
