Rescue cat Bacardi, from Battersea at Old Windsor, needs a homeHi there stranger, my name is Bacardi. Contrary to what my name suggests, I'm not a big drinker and actually prefer a bowl of water and lots of treats. Well, you tend to want a quieter life as you get older don't you! At 12 years old, a comfortable, quiet home with lots of warm cosy spots for me to curl up and snooze in would be perfect for me. Although I would describe myself as an independent sort of chap, I am affectionate when I want to be, and enjoy a fuss and a tickle on my terms. That being said, I would prefer to be the only pet in the household, and older children only please - young humans make too much noise, and I need my beauty sleep! When the weather allows, I'd like the freedom to loll about in the garden and enjoy the infrequent British sun, so access to a catflap is a must. I am neutered, chipped and all the rest, so if you have the space in your home and heart for a handsome tabby boy, do get in touch - I can't wait to meet you.

Rescue cat Chip from Blue Cross Cambridge, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, needs a homeGood day to you, my name is Chip and I am a lovely tortoiseshell lady. I am around 13 years old and have been neutered. I am hoping there will be someone out there who can offer me a loving home; I am a friendly girl, who loves a treat or two once I know that everything is okay and I have no need to worry. I think I could live with older, quieter children but I would prefer to be the only pet as I prefer not to share my space with others. There isn't a lot known about me, I have been a mum and really I am just looking forward to a fresh start in a loving home, where I can relax and live a long and happy life. If you think you could make my wish come true, do call and arrange to meet me.

Hello, my name is John Craven. I’m a large and handsome three year old black cat who was rescued from a miserable life of fending for myself on the streets, and I’m looking for a loving permanent home of my very own. My rescuers think that I’ve been treated badly in the past, and this means I can occasionally get a bit grumpy (especially if I don’t get my own way!) - and being a big kitten at heart I can also get over-excited when playing. Therefore I’m looking for an experienced, adult-only home with kind human friends who will be able to understand when I’ve had enough fuss. I love being around people and will make a terrific, affectionate and talkative companion. A home without other pets, with access to a garden in a semi-rural area, would be perfect for me. I have been neutered. If you’re looking to offer a caring forever home to a comical, friendly, lovable rogue, then please get in touch!

Rescue cat Tilly from RSPCA - Middlesex North West, needs homeHello there my dear, I'm Tilly - thanks for stopping by. As you can see I'm a rather pretty shade of brindle-tortoiseshell. I'm 9 years old which is a sensible age for a cat, athough I can't promise to be sensible always - as I'm partial to chasing my favorite catnip mouse round now and again! So, I'm keen to find my forever home, as the truth is I don't like being in rescue, I don't like being confined, or the noises of other cats. It makes me a bit stressed. I'm actually a purry puss who has the ocassional bout of grumpiness as befits a lady of my age. I'm an independant lass and know what I want. I would like access to a garden but I'd be happy to potter and entertain myself when your at work. I'm an affectionate soul at heart who will come for a fuss when your around as you tell me about your day. I would like to go to an adult home with no other cats. I'd really love to settle down in a proper home and the only condition I make is that I can bring my favourite catnip mouse with me!

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.
FFION is at Cat & Kitten Rescue, Rehoming from bases in Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and West London.
