Rescue cat Molly from Feline Friends London, needs homeHello my dear, my name is Molly. I'm a very affectionate sweet natured, neutered, girl whose favourite things are cuddling and being brushed. I love pottering in the garden but I don't really stray from it. I love attention and company and the rescue people think I have the cutest little miaow! I need a very special human to give me a happy life again. I'm about 13 years old and I'm diabetic. Still reading? Hooray I could jump for joy! Now, I require insulin twice daily, I accept the injections without any problem. I even have an insulin pen to make it easier for anyone else doing the injections. My condition is stable and the vet sees me every 3-4 months to check sugar levels. I also have colitis. In spite of my illnesses I am a happy little cat and would not mind being the only cat in the household I think. The rescue people think I could make someone very happy if they could offer me my forever home. I know its a big ask but I believe that there is a special human waiting for me out there.

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 Sally at RSPCA Friern Barnet needs a homeHi, my name is Sally! I am a neutered, 1 year old tabby girl, looking for a new home. I was admitted into RSPCA Harmsworth Hospital after I was seen to have been hit by a car. From the collision I suffered a fractured pelvis. I needed a lot of rest, as well as some light exercise to get my strength back up. I recovered so well from being in a foster home, and was soon able to start moving about. I am a sweet, gentle, affectionate girl, who loves attention, and I am confident enough to approach strangers, I don't like to be picked up, but do enjoy lots of fuss, and I love to be close to you. I need a home  with a safe garden, so I have access outdoors. I would prefer a home with no other cats or dogs please.  I hope you can offer me a forever home. If I sound like the cat for you then please get in touch with us.

Rescue Cats Basil & Bertie from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, London needs a homeHi there, my name’s Basil and I’m here with my brother Bertie in the hope of catching someone special’s eye and finding ourselves a forever home. We’re both 18 months old, I’m black and white and Bertie’s tabby. We were strays until we were taken in by the Rescue. We were awfully lucky though that a nice couple fed us. Bertie is awful timid but he is improving slowly. He had a leg injury which ended up so bad that the vet people couldn’t save it and he had to have it removed but I don’t think he’s realised as he gets about fine and still plays with me just as much! Bertie depends on me, I’m more confident than he is and so we need to find a home where we can stay together. We’re looking for patient people who will give us time to get used to being in a family and given time we’ll reward you by being such a wonderful pair of cats. We’ve both been neutered and would love a secure garden to play chase in oh and if you’ve got some garden chairs that would be great, we’ve discovered how fab they are for having a snooze! Please give us a chance?
BASIL & BERTIE are at Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, rehoming in West and South West London, Hounslow, Brentford, Isleworth, Twickenham, Ealing, Feltham, Hanworth, Ashford, Staines etc. To make an enquiry please call: 020 8560 5443 and please mention you saw Basil & Bertie on Cat Chat, thank you

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. To make an enquiry, please call: 07843 118 426 (Tues to Sat 12-18.00, Sun 12-14:00) or Email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

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 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.

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!

Rescue cat Lara from Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, West London and Surrey, needs a home Hello, my name is Lara. I'm desperately seeking a loving new home, and I was hoping you might be able to help me? I'm a gorgeous 2 year old girl. I have a beautiful black coat. I'm a sweet and gentle cat and can't wait to find my loving new family. I was previously living in a multi-cat household and found myself at the rescue when I became pregnant. I have since been neutered. My kittens have both been adopted so it's now time for me to find you! I should be fine to live with sensible older children but I would rather not live with dogs. I'd need access to the outdoors in my new home so I can potter about outside. I'm such a sweetie and really deserve a life of happiness!
LARA is at Hounslow Animal Welfare Society, rehoming in West and South West London, Hounslow, Brentford, Isleworth, Twickenham, Ealing, Feltham, Hanworth, Ashford, Staines etc. To make an enquiry please call: 020 8560 5443 and please mention you saw Lara on Cat Chat, thank you!
