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 young children please, we may be ok with quiet teenagers. 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

Wizard and Willow

Wizard and Willow

Hello my name is Wizard and I am looking for a new home with my daughter Willow. I am a six year old Tonkinese neutered boy and Willow is a 2 year old Tonkinese spayed female. We are a very closely bonded pair and like to go everywhere together. You will usually find us both squeezed into the same bed.Since we have been at Raystede we have settled in very well. Willow in particular is very playful and is growing in confidence. She can be very affectionate and has been known to climb up on your shoulders. She also likes to give people a little wash every now and again and is often grooming me too! I am a friendly boy and do like a bit of fuss little and often. I can also be quite playful but again little and often. We both like to go outside so would need a nice garden. We are very friendly at times when it is quiet and particularly like to join you on the bed for cuddles. If you have experience of our breed then that would be great. We really do need someone who can devote plenty of time to us. We have had three homes, two of them in quick succession, so are really keen to find our forever home. We may be ok with older children but will need to be the only cats in the home. We have never met dogs. Do you have the purrfect forever home for us? Love Wizard and Willow xx

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 especially 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

Blue

Blue

Meet Blue, our magnificent Flemish giant rabbit. Blue is a neutered male of unknown age, but we think he's around 1 year old. He came to Raystede after turning up in someone's garden one day. He loves being outside and is a proficient digger so will need a home with a large, secure garden. He can get a bit over-excited at times so can't live with children. He is looking for a forever home with a spayed female rabbit.

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

Teddy

Teddy

I’m Teddy, a bouncy little 14 months old male Chihuahua X Pomeranian. I am high energy, love going for adventures out in the countryside, running and playing with my doggie friends. I have a busy mind too and love to learn, I could be taught to do lots of tricks and would enjoy agility! I am not a lap dog though enjoy cuddles once tired out!I could live with older children, potential with another dog if the match is right but no cats! I have been passed around alot in my short live and as a result I’m not house trained which potential owner must be patient and commited too.

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 a bit shy to begin with but once I know you, I can be very friendly and love 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 can be very playful.I have settled into the cattery here and now feel much more confident although I am still not keen on being picked up. 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 though not suited to live with cats I need a terrier loving adult only home as I have a strong character!. 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.

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 like a child free home. I may take a while to settle in as I can be nervous to start. 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 understanding owner who is happy to have a litter tray in the home at all times. I would prefer not to live with young children but may be ok with quiet older children. I 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

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
