Jet & Tiger Lily

Jet & Tiger Lily

Hi, my name is Jet and I am male, my friend is Tiger Lily and she is female. We are both 11 years old and we are looking for a home together. I am a confident, inquistive and affectionate boy. I love to explore and enjoy a fuss and sitting on your lap. Tiger Lily is very affectionate once she knows you, she can be nervous of loud noises. She loves to play and would happily sit on your lap all day given the chance. We are looking for an adult only home and would suit a retired couple or single person. We cannot live with other cats and we do not like dogs. Sorry, no children please. We have lots of love to give to the right home, can you offer us a loving, forever home please? Love Jet & Tiger Lily x

Percy & Gracie

Percy & Gracie

Hello my name is Percy and I am looking for a new home with my friend Gracie. We are both 2 years old but not from the same litter. I can be a little shy to start with but am a very sweet friendly lapcat who loves fuss and attention. Gracie can be a little more nervous and needs to bond with her new owner as she can be quite wary of people, given time and love I am sure she will become very friendly too. We would like a quieter adult home without dogs. We have lived with two other cats so may possibly live with new feline friends although Gracie might not be quite so keen. We would love to have a nice garden please which Gracie easpecially would need a slow introduction to. Because of my lovely white colour I would need sun block on my ears on sunny days to avoid any sun damage. Do you have the purrfect home for us? Love Percy and Gracie xx

Charlie & Kia

Charlie & Kia

Hello my name is Charlie and I am a 10 year old Jack Russell and this is my best friend Kia and she is a 10 year old Jack Russell too.! We are the best of friends so we need to find a loving home together. Please don’t be fooled by our age, we are very young at heart, we still love our walks and playing with toys and balls. We could not live with cats. Terrier lovers will truly love our cheeky characters.

Vinnie

Vinnie

Hello my names Vinnie and I''m a 6 year old staffie cross. I am looking for a quiet home where it''s not too busy and where I will be given time to settle. I find built up places and crowds of people too stressful so this will require patient training and will not be a quick fix. I require an understanding owner who will give me time to adjust to new situations and changes. When I first came to raystede I was very nervous of men but I have grown fond of the kennel guys that look after me so with time I do come round. I like some dogs and could live with older confident teenagers in the home. I have not been cat tested yet but staff can do this if you are suitable for me. Will you give me a chance to show you how lovely I am?

Reserved Lobuz

Lobuz

Hello my name is Lobuz. I am a 5 year old male. Initially I can be shy but once I have settled I can be a very confident and affectionate boy. I love a fuss and can be very loving and will sit on your lap. I also love my food and need to watch that I don''t put too much weight on. I am a very active boy and would be best suited to a home as the only cat as I can show dominant behavior at times. A home that is not in a highly populated cat area would be best as I have been known to have the odd scrap with other cats. I have lived with a dog before but would need to meet any future canine friends to see how I react. I would possibly live with children. I am a lovely boy with a big personality. Can you offer me my purrfect forever home? Love Lobuz xx

Rehomed Mikey

Mikey

Hello my name is Mikey. I am a 7 year old male. My owner has sadly passed away and I am looking for a quiet home with someone who will love me. I can be wary of new people and will take time to settle in but I can be a very affectionate and loving cat once I have bonded with you. I am rather scared of men and prefer ladies and I would not be happy living with children or dogs. I have been known to be playful with some cats in the garden but would prefer a home to myself. I do enjoy going out and hunting so would need a nice garden. I will take time to settle in to a new home so ideally would be looking for an experienced cat owner. Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Mikey xx

Tilly

Tilly

Hi, my name is Tilly and I am 6 years old. I came to Raystede due to the ill health of my owner. I can be quite timid and a bit shy but once I know you, I can be very friendly and enjoy a fuss. I am looking for a quiet home (sorry, no children or other pets) and would suit a single person or a couple. I love to sit in boxes and have the odd play with my favourite mouse. I don''t mind being brushed which will need to be done regularly due to my long fur. I would like a garden but I am unlikely to venture very far. I am a sweet girl, I just need to find that special person to love me. Could it be you? Love Tilly x

Scamp

Scamp

My name is Scamp and I am a fun loving 5 year old male Jack Russell cross. I enjoy my walks plus plenty of play and cuddles once tired out. I am generally social with other dogs but have not been cat tested yet, children in the home need to be older. I’d like an active home with plenty of toys please!

Basil, Herbie & Sweetie

Basil, Herbie & Sweetie

Meet Basil, Herbie and Sweetie, a trio of neutered male chinchillas. Basil and Herbie are just over 2 years old and Sweetie is 7 and a half years old. Herbie is blind, but has no problems getting around his cage, and he frequently makes escape attempts. They are a close-knit group so are looking for a loving home together.

Sparky

Sparky

Hello my name is Sparky I’m a hyper male 6 year old Cocker spaniel. I like to be kept very busy and need lots of mental stimulation. I require lots of countryside walks to keep me happy and I like other dogs but have not been cat tested yet. I was trained to be a working dog but found it hard to focus so potential owners should be aware I am HIGH energy and more than your typical spaniel!! Potential interested applicants MUST have spaniel experience.

Reserved Sherlock & Blackie

Sherlock & Blackie

Hi, we are Sherlock and Blackie, I am 4 years old and Blackie is 3 years. We are brothers from different litters but we are close so we would like to stay together. I like to sit on laps and have a fuss but am also quite independant. Blackie is very much a lap cat and likes lots of attention. We have lived with children but do seem to be quite nervous here at Raystede so may be happier in a quieter home possibly with older children. We would prefer to be the only two cats in the house and will not live with dogs as we are very scared of them. We are looking for a home with a nice garden to explore. Do you have the purrfect home for us? Love Sherlock and Blackie

Jasper

Jasper

Hello my name is Jasper and I am nearly 9 years old.I am a little nervous with new people but once I know you I am a lovely cuddly lap cat. I do like to hunt and have been known to chase the odd squirrel so would need a nice garden. I have lived with a female cat who liked to groom me so may live with a friendly feline but would prefer not to live with dogs. I am also not happy living with young children so would ideally like a child free home. I may take a while to settle in as I am quite nervous in the cattery so an experienced cat home may be best. Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Jasper xx

Button

Button

Hello my name is Button. I am an 11 year old female. I take a little while to get to know people but once I do I am very friendly and affectionate and I love a cuddle. I am looking for a home where I am the only cat, ideally not in a highly cat populated area. I do enjoy going outside at times especially when the weather is nice. I need an experienced understanding owner who is happy to have a litter tray in the home at all times. I would prefer not to live with children and have not lived with dogs though it is possible I might live with the right dog. Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Button xx

Star

Hello, my name is Star and I am a really friendly 2 year old female Staffie. I love cuddles, have lots of energy so enjoy my walks and playing. I like other dogs and cats and could live with confident older children. I am DEAF however have learnt sign language and focus well onto people to be given guidance. I am strong on the lead and quite a powerful dog.

Hatchi

My name is Hatchi and I am an 11 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.
