Rescue cat Timmy from Ipswich & District Animal Welfare, Suffolk, needs a homeHello, I wonder if you’ll be the special person I’m hoping for? My name’s Timmy and I’m a 1 year old tabby and white little boy. I’m really very nervous and a lot of every day noises scare me a lot but I really am a lovely boy who just needs someone to take time and patience with me to build up my confidence. I’m looking for someone who’ll be very gentle and give me lots of love to help me to grow into the wonderful confident boy I have hiding inside me! I have been making progress here and am starting to become a bit more used to everybody at the rescue and have even enjoyed being stroked. I think I’d be best in a quiet home with no children and as an only pet. I’m hoping my lovely new owner will be someone experienced in looking after nervous cats, with lots of patience and most of all lots of love to share with me. I’ve been neutered and would need a garden please. If you think you could be my perfect person please get in touch?

Rescue Cat Megan, Bury St. Edmunds & Stowmarket, Bury St. Edmunds needs a homeHello! My name’s Megan and I’m a 5 year old, pretty tortoiseshell and white cat…actually no, I’m a very pretty girl! I’m just going by what everyone around me tells me though and can I help it if I’m gorgeous?? Anyway, you’re being given the wonderful chance to be my new owner, how lucky are you! I was very sad to have to say goodbye to my previous owner but they had to move to an area where it would have been unsuitable for me to go outside. I’ve been used to living in a rural location and I love going outside and hunting and so we had to go our separate ways. I’m a very friendly girl and will chirrup a hello when I see you. I’ve never been around dogs and didn’t get on with the other cat in my last home so I’m looking to be your only pet. I think I’d be best in an adult only home or one with older children. I’ve been neutered and am just waiting for my special person or people to fall in love with me!

Rescue Cat Boudica, National Animal Welfare Trust - Clacton, Clacton needs a homeHello everyone, I’m Boudica and very pleased to meet you! I’m a beautiful, tortie and white, neutered lady and I’m looking for a home to call my own. I’m 17 years of age but anyone who knows me thinks I’m half that because of the way I jump up on posts and the head bumps I give being like a force to be reckoned with! They’re delivered with lots of love though as you can tell by my loud purr as I’m giving them. I’m mostly looking for a soft comfy lap to curl up in and plenty of fuss to go along with it. I’d also like a garden to have a potter about in and a sunbathe when the sun’s out. Now, I’m not sure about children but I’m happy to meet children 12 years and older and see how we go. I’d rather be your only pet though, all the more fuss for me! So, what do you think….have you got the purrfect lap for me? If you think you might have, please get in touch and arrange a meeting I’ll be here waiting patiently!

Rescue cat Kit, from National Animal Welfare Trust, Clacton, needs a homeHi there, my name is Kit. Kit the cat! I'm a simply adorable four year old lady puss with lovely tabby and white fur. Aren't I pretty! I will take your silence as a yes! Now I know I'm a Very Important Puss, so I have no idea why I've been overlooked - perhaps I'm just too purrfect? I'm certainly the best cat you'll ever meet; so good you'll want to have me as your only pet, because I'll need 100% of your affection! And don't worry, I'll tell you how much attention I want, and when I want it! You'll also have to learn how to play my favourite game with my fishing toy; the rules are simple: I try and catch the toy, and you indulge me until I collapse! I don't like sharing, and that goes for pretty much anything - food, treats, toys, the remote - you name it, it's mine! So a calm home without other pets or children would be best for me. Previously I have been kept indoors, which I found a bit restrictive to be honest - in my new home I'd really like the opportunity to explore outside in a safe garden space, when that elusive British sun shines! I am neutered and all ready to go, so if you think you've got what it takes to spoil me, please get in touch - you won't regret it, I promise.

Rescue Cats Mr Tom & Coco from Feline Care Cat Rescue, Attleborough needs a homeWe've been waiting over a year... Please pick us! Hi there, my name’s Coco and I’m the sweetest, most adorable little black cat you could meet and I’m here with the love of my life, handsome Mr Tom who’s black and white. I’m 3 years old and he’s 5. We were born in the same area and have gone through life together and are very close. I’m a kissy cuddly cat and am craving a home where there will be a comfy lap and lots of cuddles but Mr Tom is much shyer, he’s nervous of meeting new people and needs a bit of time to get to know them. We’re really looking for someone with a big heart and lots of patience who can give us both a home because we don’t want to be split a part and if they give Mr Tom a chance, he too will make a lovely friendly cat. I lost part of my tail while I was a stray and have a long term eye problem which isn’t covered by insurance as it’s pre-existing condition. The rescue says that they might be able to help with any veterinary care with my eyes though. We’ve been neutered and can live with other cats. We’re best not sharing with children though and could be scared of dogs. We have our paws crossed that the right home and people are out there waiting to find us, hope you find us soon!
