Rescue cat Lulu, at Yorkshire Cat Rescue, needs a new homeHello, my name is Lulu. I’m a beautiful short haired tabby girl of about 18 months old, and I came into rescue with my tiny kittens. I was very frightened indeed, but my kind rescuers made sure that my babies were looked after until they were ready to find their new homes. I’ve now been spayed and am looking for an experienced, patient and loving home of my own. I’m still very fearful of humans but have made progress in my foster home and enjoy games and treats; if you can help me to continue to gain confidence in a peaceful, adult-only home then I’ll be able to grow into a much more relaxed, trusting and contented furry companion. Could you offer me the time, care and understanding I need, and the wonderful forever home I deserve? Please get in touch!

Rescue cat Skittles from Yorkshire Animal Shelter, needs homeHello new friend! I'm Skittles and I'm a friendly and people-loving girl of about 2 years. The rescue people think I'm extremely sweet and adorable on account of my petite stature and loving nature. I don't know about that but its sad that I'm overlooked while other cats with 'interesting' colours are rehomed. I will bring a rainbow of colour into my new humans life and home if I'm allowed. I should be ok in a home with children or other cats - I don't know about dogs yet. I have been chipped and neutered and I will be crossing my paws in hopes for a forever home.

Rescue cats Jellybean and Candy from Yorkshire Animal Shelter, Leeds, Yorkshire West Yorkshire North, need a homeHello, I'm Jellybean and my sister here is called Candy. We have been named after sweets as the rescue people think we are super-sweet kitties! We are both girls by the way, we are 4 months old and would like to be rehomed together please. We are a pair of happy go lucky 'normal' kittens, which means we are funny, playful and affectionate. This involves chasing toys around the room and then snuggling up together to sleep after a fuss from our humans. We are fully vet checked and had our first vaccinations. We will be neutered before rehoming.

Rescue Cat Jack from Independent Cat Rescue, Dewsbury needs a homeHello! my name’s Jack and I’m hoping to find myself a forever home. I quite liked having my picture taken, I think I look quite happy here - I put my best smiley face on! I’m a handsome lad who’s black and white and I’m only 6 years old so we should have years to become best friends. I love getting cuddles and quite enjoy sitting next to my owner or on your knee if you’ll let me! I love my food and although I’m normally quite quiet, I do meow rather loudly for my food, well, you might not know I’m hungry otherwise! I have lost a fair few of my teeth so would really appreciate it if you’d soften any dry food with warm water and mix it in with my wet food, I manage it no problem then. What else…oh yes, I’ve been neutered too. I’m just waiting to hear from you now, please get in touch soon?

TRescue cats Amy & Troy from Pawprints Cat Rescue, Bradford, West Yorkshire, need a home.Hi there, I am Amy, a tabby & white lass and that’s my brother Troy; we are around 3 years old and neutered. We are looking for a home together, we really are best friends and couldn’t bear to be parted. We were both very shy when we arrived but thanks to the love we have been shown we are much more confident now; having said that we will need time to learn to trust our new humans, so a patient home is a must. We are hoping to find a home with a garden so that when the weather is nice and we are fully settled in we can do a little exploring and possibly a little sunbathing. We could happily live with other cats but have never tried living with a dog or small children. If you are looking for two new feline friends then look no further and be sure to get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cats Charlie & Willow from Pennine Animal Welfare Society, Todmorden, West Yorkshire, Lancashire, need a homeHello, we are Charlie (ginger & white) and Willow aka Will. We are 3 year old, neutered chaps in need of a new home. We were no longer wanted at our previous home, forced to live outside, and not cared for very well, which has left us both very timid. We must be homed together, we just become very sad if we are separated and we pine terribly. We would like to find a home where there are no young children, teenagers who wouldn’t expect us to be lap cats might be ok, and no other pets please as our experiences with other pets has not been positive. You would need to brush us every day as we are both long haired. If you have the time and experience to help us develop our confidence we would reward you by keeping your knees warm once we get used to you; we also love to play with toys. If you could offer us a loving home, where we are truly wanted and have security, do get in touch.

Rescue cat Coffee from Cat Action Trust 1977 - Leeds, West Yorkshire, needs a homeHi there, my name is Coffee; I am a 6 year old girl and I was rescued by the lovely people here after my owners had a baby and decided they didn’t want me anymore. I was left at the vets and found to have a severe flea infestation; in fact I was so ill with it that they vet had to postpone my being spayed until I have recovered. I have had flea treatment and am getting stronger by the day; so I will be neutered soon. I am a friendly girl who just wants a loving home of my very own; one where I will be loved forever, rather than until circumstances change. I would prefer a home away from busy roads and I am hoping that someone will fall in love with me very soon. If you think I could be the purr-fect girl for you please get in touch as soon as you can.

Rescue cat Toby, at Leeds Cat Rescue, needs a new homeHello, my name is Toby.  I'm a gorgeous, playful young chap of around four years old with a short-haired white and black coat.  I'm looking for a caring permanent home with a garden to play in, and a kind human or two to give me plenty of love and attention.  I'm an energetic, inquisitive little fellow who'll bring lots of fun and adorable kitty companionship into my forever home, which I'd be happy to share with another friendly cat or laidback dog.  I have been neutered.  I'm told that black and white cats often get overlooked, but I simply can't believe that any sensible human who met me would fail to fall instantly in love!  If you have a space in your heart and home for a fabulous feline, then why not come and meet me, and see for yourself?

Rescue cat Angel, from Leeds Cat Rescue, needs a homeHello there, how do you do? My name is Angel. I'm a 2-year-old calico girl with a snow white bib and belly, and after having had kittens of my own I am now neutered (phew!). My short life has been unsettling to say the least; much of it spent in the cellars of my previous owner's house and neighbouring houses. As you can imagine, the past year or so has been very scary for me and as such I struggle to cope with loud or sudden noises. My trust in humans is understandably quite shaken at this point, though I am definitely open to love and be loved again in the right home; I still adore being stroked and held, even after so much time spent with only my kittens for company. I don't think anything would give me greater pleasure than to live in a quiet home, with access to a comfy lap and tickles, and above all, some fresh air! I would love to feel the sun on my face after being cooped up for so long, though I'm quickly learning that the British weather is quite unreliable for that! Although I have been isolated for quite some time, I think I could live with maybe older children, a gentle dog or a friendly cat companion - though all that matters to me really is that I have your love and fusses all to myself; I think I deserve it, don't you agree?
