Kim & Kevin

Hi, we are Kim and Kevin and we are both just over a year old. We are looking for a home together. We are here because the other cat that we used to live with did not like us. We are both lovely affectionate and friendly cats. I am slightly more confident with new people than Kevin but he is very friendly once he knows you. We both enjoy play and love going outside so a garden is essential. We could live with children of most ages. We may be ok to live with a calm dog but would need to meet. We could live with another cat. We have lots of love to give, could we be the cats for you? Love Kim and Kevin x

Bootsie & Bowie

Bootsie & Bowie

Hi, we are Bootsie and Bowie, brothers aged 4 years old. We are looking for a home together as we are extremely close. We came to Raystede as we were very stressed in our previous home. With too many cats in the area and we felt the need to 'mark' our territory. We also were very scared of the dog next door. We have had quite a bit of change in our short lives and now we are hoping to find a forever home where we can feel safe and settled. We are both very handsome and we adore fuss and attention. Bowie can initially be shy of new people but it does not take him long to make friends. We love to curl up next to you and may follow you around. A garden is essential and we must be in an area which does not have many cats around. We are great with children but do need to be the only pets. We have lots of love to give to the right home. Can you offer us a home with a great garden and not surrounded by other feline's or dog's? Love Bootsie & Bowie x

Buttons & Molly

Buttons & Molly

Meet Buttons and Molly, two very special bunnies. Buttons is a 5 year old neutered male Himalayan and Molly is a 6 and half year old dwarf lop. Buttons is almost completely deaf and blind, caused by a brain injury when he was younger. Molly takes care of him so they muse be homed together. They are very loving rabbits who enjoy napping together and sitting in the sunshine. They are looking for a home with experienced rabbit owners. Please enquire for further information.



Hi, my name is Sally and I am 9 years old. Sadly, my owner passed away so I find myself here at Raystede. I am looking for a very special home as Raystede has discovered that I am diabetic. This means that I will need two insulin injections per day and regular checks with a vet. Ideally, it would be wonderful if I could live with someone who has had a diabetic cat before or has had some experience of diabetes. I am a very sweet, placid girl and I could be homed as an indoor cat or with a garden. I would be best as the only pet and probably no young children. My last home was quite quiet so I would not suit a noisy home. I enjoy fuss and attention but just need to find someone who will love me and look after me. Could that be you please? Lots of love Sally x



Hi, my name is Buz and I am female aged 6 years. I am an affectionate and very playful girl and I enjoy lots of fuss from adults. I am fine with older children (over 12 years) but no young children please. I am not that keen on being picked up. I am confident generally and I am always pleased to see you. I do need regular flea treatment as I have an allergy to flea bites. I am not keen on other cats and I am scared of dogs. I would like a nice garden to explore but I am unlikey to venture very far. I have lots of love to give to the right home, could I be the cat for you? Love Buz x


I’m Dash, a handsome, super fast 2 year old male Collie cross. I was rescued from and unpleasant home by Animal Wardens and am now looking for experienced, committed people to help me learn and have lots of fun. I have lots of energy and could run and play fetch all day. I need training around other dogs and am not suited to live with other animals. I need an adult only home with the time and patience to help me flourish.

Henry & Harry

Henry & Harry

Meet Henry and Harry, two 6 year old male guinea pigs. They are very sweet but a little shy. They are best friends and are looking for a loving home together with experienced guinea pig owners.



Meet Holly, a 2 year old female French Lop. Holly is a very friendly bunny and loves affection. Unusually for rabbits, Holly isn't keen on other rabbits, she much prefers human company, so she is looking for a forever home on her own, but with lots of human love. Because of this, she will need to be kept as a house-rabbit, but with plenty of access to a secure garden to explore. Holly is a gorgeous girl who is desperate for a home of her own.

Kate & Leo

Kate & Leo

Meet Kate & Leo, two 4 and a half year old English Spots. These two rabbits haven't had the best life so far, and have a few behavioural issues. Staff and volunteers have worked with them to get them used to people and they are becoming very friendly little bunnies. They will need a home where their new owners are willing to be patient and take time getting to know them. They are looking for their forever home togther.

Eddie & Trixie

Eddie & Trixie

Meet Eddie and Trixie, two lionhead crosses. Eddie is a 3 and a half year old, neutered male and Trixie is a 6 year old spayed female. They are sweet-natured bunnies who can often be found grazing in their garden. They are best friends so need to be homed together. Due to their breeds the need regular grooming to keep their fur in tip top condition.


Hi, my name is Lobuz and I am a 5 year old neutered male. I have been at Raystede for some time and I am desperate for a home to call my own. I am a very confident and affectionate boy and also extremely smart and intelligent. I love a fuss and can be very loving and will sit on your lap. I really love human company and would benefit from a home where I am not left alone for long periods. I also love my food so I could easily be trained as I am ultra smart. I did use to live with a female cat and Raystede staff now feel that I would benefit from a feline friend. I have even made good friends with one of the male cats here. I have lived with a dog before so I could possibly do so again. I am brilliant with children. I love to play and enjoy being brushed. A garden is essential please. I am looking for an experienced cat owner ideally as I have developed a spray behaviour issue which I need to un-learn which may take time. The staff feel this is stress related as I am unhappy. I am a lovely boy with a big personality. Please can someone give me a home? I am very miserable despite the love that the staff show me here. There is no place like home....... Love Lobuz x


My name is Hatchi and I am an 20 months old male LARGE mongrel (35kg) – possibly a Malamute cross? I’m a friendly pup needing an experienced, adult only home able to commit to my on-going training. I am really clever and starting to learn but I am strong and like to clown around! I need training around other dogs and am not suited to live with cats. New owners will need to have experience of large breeds and be able to provide the right environment and active lifestyle for me. I do also love my cuddles and will form a close bond to people who understand me.

Toby & Lucy

Toby & Lucy

Meet Toby & Lucy, two 11 month old rabbits. Toby is a neutered male, English Spot and Lucy is a spayed female, tri-coloured standard X. They are confident bunnies and love exploring outside. Toby is a bit nervous but Lucy will come and say hello, in her own time! They are very close so must be homed together.
