Nancy & Nelly
Hi, we are sisters aged 9 weeks and we are looking for a home together please. We were born at Raystede so we have been well looked after. We are both playful and friendly but sometimes a little shy of new people initially. We are looking for a home with a garden so that eventually we are able to go outside. We could live with children over 5 years and possible another cat and maybe a well behaved dog. We would benefit from a home where we are not left alone for too long during the daytime and with lots of toys to play with. We are close so we would love to stay together. Double the mischief but also the fun! We are looking for a home for life so please think carefully before enquiring as this is quite a commitment when we could live well into our teens. If you think we could be the girls for you, please contact the cattery to arrange a visit. Love Nancy & Nelly x
Hi, I''m William, a handsome 8 year old male German Shepherd. I''m a loyal dog and love my walks. I like some other dogs but no cats please and am looking for an active but calm adult only home.
Hello, I’m Sasha, a pretty little 2 year old female collie cross. I love to run and play fetch and really enjoy my walks! I like other dogs but no cats please. I’m looking for a fun loving, energetic adult only home to join please.
Hi, my name is Treacle and I am a pretty 2 year old female Lurcher. I''m sweet natured and sometimes a little shy. I love going walks with my doggie friends and running really fast! I could live with older children but no cats please.
Hello, my name is Sasha and I am a cute little 8 year old female Jack Russell with pretty markings. I love cuddles and exploring out on walks. I’m not that keen on other dogs or cats and would prefer an adult only home with plenty of comfy places to cuddle and tasty treats!
Hi, my name is Chloe and I am 18 years young! I came to Raystede after my owners were evicted from their property. I am a very placid and affectinate girl with not many teeth but I manage fine. I would love to find an adult home where I can spend the rest of my days. I love a fuss and will reward you with lots of cuddles. I do like to go outside especially when the sun is shining. I need a home without dogs or other cats. I prefer to use a litter tray for my toileting so I will need access to a litter tray at all times. I am really hoping that there will be someone who will offer me a home despite the fact that I am an old girl. Please choose me. Love Chloe x
Coffee & Marble
Hi, we are sister and brother aged nearly 12 years. We came to Raystede with our brother Sugar after our owner could no longer keep us due to moving house and pets were not allowed. We would love to find a home together if possible and if Sugar could come also, that would be wonderful. We are both lovely cats, friendly and enjoy sitting on laps. We could possibly live with children. We do not like dogs but could live with other cats provided we were introduced correctly. We both enjoy going outside so we are looking for a home with a garden please. Can you offer me and my sister a loving, forever home? Love Marble & Coffee x
Arthur & Tiny
Hi, we are Arthur & Tiny, I am male aged 4 years and Tiny is female also aged 4 years. We came from the same house as Zak & Tabby where we shared a one bedroom flat with 30 other cats! The RSPCA brought us to Raystede to help find us a more suitable home. I am very loving and affectionate, I love my tummy tickled once I know you. Tiny is timid but she is slowly feeling more confident and she does enjoy her chin tickled. We both can be shy of new people and experiences due to our very sheltered upbringing, after all, it is all we have ever known. However, with time and patience we will gain confidence and are sure to be very loving cats. Ideally, we would like to stay together if possible. We would probably be best as the only pets in the home and we may be too timid for very young children. Although we have been housecats, we would like the opportunity to explore the outside world and feel the sun on our fur. Please can you offer us a fresh start and a loving, secure home? Love Arthur & Tiny x
Hi, my name is Fosters and I am a handsome 11 year old male. I have not had the best of times as in the first home I had, I was badly mis-treated. A friend of the person who was cruel to me, took me away from that situation but was unable to keep me herself. I am a very affectionate and loving boy despite the cruelty I endured but I do not like to be held because of this. I do enjoy a fuss and love to sit next to you and I like to sleep at your feet. I am nervous of children so I am looking for an adult only home without other pets. I am very overweight so I am currently on a diet. I have always been a housecat but I would like to find a home with a garden which I will need a slow and careful introduction to. This will also help me to lose weight as I need a bit more exercise. Please can you offer me a loving, secure forever home? Love Fosters x
Mistletoe and Don
Mistletoe is a 6 month old female chinchilla and Don is her neutered male companion. Don and Mistletoe are a shy pair of chinchilla's and will need a home where someone will spend a lot of time with them, to help build their confidence. Because they are a young pair of chinchillas and are very inquisitive they will be ideal as a family pet with older children as the interaction will be good for them. For more information please contact the small animals section.
