Looking for a cat to adopt in the UK but unsure of where to look locally?
Check out the online cat rescue resource CatChat.org
"Cat Chat is a web-based registered charity sourcing new, loving homes for currently over 10,000 unwanted and abandoned cats annually from rescue shelters across the UK and Ireland through our Virtual Cat Shelters."
Cat Chat offers free Cat Homing web-pages to any UK or Ireland based rescue centre or rehoming group. For people looking to rehome a cat in their area, this is great news. And of course for the rescue kitties, even greater news!
The charity also has a section dedicated to 'Overlooked' cats. These are cats who sadly find themselves waiting longer than normal to be rehomed. Often these cats are elderly or have a medical condition.
Overlooked catsKeano and Ozzy at Wood Green, The Animals Charity have sadly been overlooked. We've featured them before and it's really sad to see that they are still waiting for their forever home.

Ozzy is looking for an adult only home. Once he builds a bond with you he will be a very affectionate boy who loves to follow you around like a little shadow and curl up on your lap. When he needs some alone time he will happily take himself off for a nap. He would prefer to be the only animal in the home. If you would love to offer this handsome Tuxedo boy a home please click his profile here He is being taken care of by the Heydon branch of Wood Green.

Rescue a cat from abroad
Have you thought of adopting a cat from abroad? You can adopt a rescue kitty from an international cat charity like Nine Lives Greece
Cats like Julieta, a beautiful girl cat who was an abandoned kitten. This pretty lady was found at a dog park with her siblings on a hot day when she was only 2 months old. Thankfully, they all escaped death. Julieta was soon adopted but, due to unforeseen life issues of her previous owner, she needs to be re-homed and is currently back in foster care. Poor baby :(
Volunteer's WeekThis week is also Volunteer's Week and we'd like to thank all the volunteers who work hard for abandoned pets all over the world. I'm especially thanking Wood Green, for rescuing me as a kitten back in 2011 and for helping me meet my mum! 💚💓
