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.

Rescue Cat Lucas, Feline Friends London, London needs a homeHello! I’m a handsome white and black gentleman on the lookout for a new home. I was born in Madrid over in Spain and have been a bit of a travelling cat thanks to my owner travelling. I loved it until the last plane trip we had over here to England, took me ages to recover and I vowed then that I wasn’t travelling again. So, when my owner found out that she had to work abroad, I thought I’d find myself a loving new home and keep my paws on the ground! I’m 14 years old, neutered and although I find I’m sleeping a bit more, I love playing with ropes and hunt the hand behind a cloth, I’ll show you how to play! I am looking for a lovely garden cos I love being outside in the garden. Although I like to take my time to get to know you, I’m very affectionate and love my human to be there with some cuddles when I come back in from the garden. I’d rather not live with children and don’t want to share with dogs but I’m used to another cat so if you have one that would be fine. What do you think, have you the tranquil home and garden I’m looking for and cuddles to share?

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.

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 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.
