Rescue cat Reesey from Battersea at Old Windsor,  needs homeHello there, my name's Reesey and I'm a neutered, tabby girl of 4 years old. I'm in rescue as my humans sadly had to move away. I'm an affectionate girl at heart and in need of companionship. I love a fuss and I have nice satisfyingly loud purr. I can be timid and shy in new situations, so I need a patient and calm house where I am allowed to settle in. Then I will be purring away next to you, keading my little paws in cat-happiness!  Now here's the thing - I have been diagnosed with FIV, but otherwise I'm healthy, happy, bright eyed and bushy tailed. FIV isn't as scary as it once was thought to be, and the kind people at catchat have provided some information if you click the link below. I would really appreciate being your only cat, so I get more fuss please and access to a safe secure garden so I can happily potter. Please say you'll have a think about making me a happy cat again - I have so much affection and companionship to offer.

Rescue cat Cassie, at Blue Cross Cambridge Rehoming Centre, needs a new homeHello, my name is Cassie.  I'm a gorgeous short-haired tortie and white girl of eight years old, and I'm looking for a fabulous permanent home.  My perfect home will have plenty of room for me to chase around after my toys, plus a human friend (or several) to play with me and listen to all my kitty chattering!  I haven't been outdoors before but once I've settled into my new home I'd enjoy having a safe garden to explore.  I'm happy to share a home with sensible, calm children who will treat me kindly, but I'd prefer to be the only furry resident as I'd like to have all your attention to myself.  I have been spayed.  If you think that you could offer me a forever home with all the love, fun and affection I deserve, then I'd love to meet you!

Rescue Cat Smudge from Cats Protection - Harlow, Epping Forest & District, Essex needs a homeHello! My name’s Smudge and I’m a gorgeous Tortie and black lady who’s looking for a home where I’ll be loved and pampered! I’m 5 years old and I came in to the rescue with my sister Poppy. She’s gone to a wonderful new home and I’m waiting for it to be my turn now. My new family must have comfy laps as one of my favourite pass times is curling up for a snooze and I’ve found the best place to do that is in a nice comfy lap. Another hobby I have is playing and particularly with my dangly toy fish - again I will need your assistance with that so hopefully you’ll be expert with wiggling the fish so I can have lots of fun pouncing! I’m fine with children but would prefer to be the only pet as I want to be centre of attention. I’d also love to have a garden to have a play in. I’ve been neutered and I do have a treatable heart condition but don’t worry, I have daily medication and it in no way cramps my style! So, can my dangly fish and me come and live with you?
SMUDGE is at Cats Protection - Harlow, Epping Forest & District.

Rescue cat Mavis, from Hula Animal Rescue in Milton Keynes, needs a homeHi! My name is Mavis. I am a 14 year old neutered girl with a lovely grey and white coat. I am looking for a settled home for a quiet retirement, without other cats - I can be a bit of a diva if I have to share attention. Having said that I'm a sweet girl who likes affection, albeit on my own terms! Despite my age I am still very active and love to play and explore the outdoors, so a cat flap and plenty of toys will be essential! I love my food, perhaps a bit too much, so I'll need you to help me stick to my diet so I can watch my figure! With a bit of play and lots of toys, I'm sure it will be easy enough to keep in shape. If you think you can give me what I need to settle in and enjoy my golden years, please do get touch - you won't regret it.

Rescue cat Timmy from Cats Protection Welwyn, Hatfield and District, Hertfordshire, needs a homeHi, my name is Timmy and I am a handsome, neutered, tabby & white chap. I am 8 years old and looking for a new home. I am looking for a home with a garden for some exploring once I am settled and a home that will love me lots and lots. I suffer with itchy skin, due to an allergy, but it is well controlled with daily medication. I would like to find a quiet home where I can be the only cat as I really don’t want to share my humans; I could live with older children who would let me have peace and quiet when I want it. If you are looking for a handsome lad to join your family purr-lease look no further and make the call.

Rescue cat Zara, from Cat & Kitten Rescue, needs a homeMeow! My name is Zara, a pretty black and white girl looking for a home where I can be the centre of attention as the only pet. I would prefer not to be in a noisy environment, so no young children either please - they can be a bit scary sometimes! I am just 18 months old so a new owner would have a massive impact on my life. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference and to be able to shape my development over the coming years. If you adopt me you will quickly discover that I have a lovely personality, enjoying cuddles and affection as well as exploring. I would need access to the outside so that I can burn off my extra energy and stay occupied if I get bored and am the ideal cat for humans seeking a loving, characterful and affectionate feline. I have been neutered, vaccinated and checked over by a vet, so am ready and waiting for any interested humans to come and visit me!
ZARA is at Cat & Kitten Rescue, Rehoming from bases in Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and West London.

Rescue cat Ffion from Cat and Kitten Rescue, Watford, needs a homeOh, hello there, my name is Ffion and I am a neutered, 18 month old, tortoiseshell girl. Well, now that all the important stuff is covered I can tell you my story. I came in with my kittens, I had given birth in a garden which wasn’t really ideal. I raised my kittens and although I was a little shy for a while, I have forged a bond with everyone here and really come into my own; everyone here says I am delightful; we all have fingers and paws crossed that I will find a home soon. I could fit into a family home; I haven’t had too much to do with other cats or dogs, so I am not sure about them; maybe I could be your only pet. I have my bags packed and am ready to go, all I need now is someone to fall in love with me. I have been vaccinated and chipped and am being fostered in Borehamwood. What are you waiting for, pick up the phone or email as soon as you can.
