Rescue Cat Sheldon from Babs Cats, Swanley, needs a homeHello, my name is Sheldon. I'm a handsome 4 year old male tabby cat. I'm looking for a loving new home for myself, if you might have a little room for me? I'm a gentle friendly boy who enjoys company, although I'm not a lap cat. I like to be brushed, which is good as I do shed! I enjoy my food very much, and sometimes like to ask for seconds. Access to a garden would be great as I enjoy pottering about outside. I am litter trained though so could be an indoor cat. I can live with another cat and even a cat savvy dog. I quite like dogs, but will of course put them in their place if I need to, I am a cat after all. I have Calici virus, which just means that I may have trouble with my teeth in the future, and they may need to come out. I've also had a bit of a problem with my throat in the past which made it tricky to swallow, if this happens again I may need antibiotics. I'm a nice friendly boy and will make a lovely companion, so please get in touch for more information about me.

Rescue cat Buddy from Stokey Cats and Dogs, London needs homeOh hello there, you seem nice so I'll come and say a purry hi!  My name is Buddy and I'm 1 years old. I'm a loving and friendly cat but I can be shy until I get to know you. I'm a real companion cat at heart, I like to curl up at night in bed with my human and follow them around the house. Where my human is, is usually my favourite place to be. The rescue people think I'm a super-sweet boy. I would prefer to be your only pet and would suit an adult home or else older children. I am neuetered and would like access to outdoors please. Thank you for reading about me.

HELLOO, ooo sorry for shouting. We are Frankie and Benny and are 6 year old, neutered, Brothers, and best friends too. I am Frankie and am a little smaller than my big brother, but still as handsome. We are both pure white, and as I have beautiful blue eyes I am sadly deaf, hence the shouting. I am boisterous, playful and outgoing, I enjoy chasing ribbons or toys and LOVES being around people. I am very affectionate and love attention, and like to flop at your feet in order to get a lovely vigorous back rub, chin scratch or a tickle. My Brother Benny, has yellow amber coloured eyes and has partial hearing (though excellent hearing when food is involved, it seems!, which is great as it lets me know when dinner is ready). He’s a more laid back and relaxed character, a little shyer than me, and prefers a gentler back rub. He is also very affectionate, he enjoys nestling up against a leg or an arm and having a sleep purring away. As we are both deaf we need a secure garden to play in, a cat proofed garden would be fantastic for us. At the moment we are in foster care in a flat but we really do want to smell the fresh air, in a secure garden and have a home we can call our own.
FRANKIE & BENNY are at Celia Hammond Animal Trust - Lewisham. Rehoming in West Kent, East London & West London.

Rescue cats Ella and Hector, from Celia Hammond Animal Trust, Lewisham, need a homeMeow meow! We are Ella and Hector, a mother and son pair who were taken in by some lovely people after spending time roughing it as strays on the street. We have a very close bond so are hoping to be rehomed together. As you can see, we have quite distinctive markings, with mine being more of the tortie purrsuasion, and my son Hector's being white and ginger. He is still only a year old, so if you choose to adopt us you will be getting a pair of cats who you can make a real difference to. Hector is more trusting than I am, and he is more than happy to be stroked and interact with people. I can be more skittish, and although I am comfortable living with and around people, it will take longer for me to come out of my shell and learn to trust you. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a cat that has learned to distrust people come out of its shell and really develop a loving relationship with someone, and that would be my absolute dream! We need somewhere with access to the outside and without any other pets or children, or alternatively might suit life at a smallholidng or stable where we can come and find you when we want some attention! We have both been neutered and are up to date on our vaccinations, so please get in touch if you are interested.

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 Pepper from Feline Friends London, needs a homeHello there, my name’s Pepper and I think I’m just lovely - I have a beautiful sleek black coat making me a most handsome chap. I’m 16 years old and have been neutered. I have developed an over-active thyroid which I’m currently on medication for and as a result I’m extremely grumpy when I’m hungry and have developed a lovely demanding meow! I am however always happy to receive gentle, loving attention from anyone and basically am extremely happy eating and being cuddled! I’m quite happy to sleep, eat, go outside and generally ignore most of what goes on around me! I’ve been told I’m a very amusing cat who has bags of character, I guess you’ll have to meet me to find that out! I’m hoping for someone who has a garden and who could give me lots of love and attention, if you think that’s you please get in touch!
PEPPER is at Feline Friends London. Rehoming across London. To make an enquiry please call: 07786 380572 or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and please mention you saw Pepper on Cat Chat, thank you!
