Miss Muffett & Bella

Miss Muffett & Bella

Hello my name is Miss Muffett and I am looking for a home with my daughter Bella. I am 10 years young and Bella is 8 years. We are both extremely loving and affectionate girls. We love fusses and being brushed, which is good as we will both need some daily brushing to keep our beautiful fluffy coats in good condition. We used to live on a farm and are used to lots of outside space so may suit a more rural home with a large garden. We lived with other cats on the farm so may possibly live with cats if there is enough room. Neither of us are keen on dogs so no doggies please,and we may possibly live with older children. Do you have the purrfect home for us? Love Miss Muffett and Bella xx

Reserved Nemo


Hi, my name is Nemo and I am a female aged nearly 13 years. I came to Raystede as I was extremely unhappy living with another cat and I was getting very stressed. I am looking for an adult only home with a garden. I cannot live with a cat again and I do not like dogs. I am an affectionate girl and enjoy a fuss but sometimes on my terms. I would be a much happier cat once I find the right home then I would be a lovely companion. Can you offer me a forever home please? Love Nemo x



Hi, my name is Storm and I am female aged just over 2 years old. I came to Raystede as I was extremely unhappy living with other cats and children so I spent a lot of time outside to avoid them. I'm afraid that I do not like teenagers either. I used to visit a neighbour who had no animals or children and I was very affectionate and loving girl so I am looking for a similar home. I do not like dogs either but I did quite like the rabbits in my previous home. I do need a home with a garden and I do like to hunt so you would need to be ok with that. I am a very pretty girl with lots of love to give in the right home. Could I be the cat for you? Love Storm x

Reserved Charlie & Henry

Charlie & Henry

Hello my name is Charlie and I am looking for a new home with my brother Henry. We are 12 years young. I am a very affectionate, laid back boy who loves company and attention. Henry also likes a fuss although is a little more reserved and shy than me. We love to be around humans so if our owners are in we are usually in the house. We do both love to go outside although we don't go too far and neither of us do much hunting. We may live with children over 8 years but would probably be best without other cats and have not lived with dogs. Do you have the purrfect home for us? Love Charlie and Henry xx

Gary, Mark & Howard

Gary, Mark & Howard

Meet Gary, Mark and Howard, a family of male mice. Gary is the dad and is just over 7 months old, Mark and Howard are brothers and are 6 months old. They are very friendly and will happily take food from you. They love to sleep and can often be found curled up in bed together.

Raggles & Gaggles

Raggles & Gaggles

Meet Raggles and Gaggles, two 2 year old male Abyssinian guinea pigs. They are best friends and are very similar. Raggles is more confident and friendly and Gaggles is still a bit nervous, but they both enjoy their food. Raggles as an ongoing eye condition that will need occasional veterinary treatment, please ask a member of the Small Animals team for further information. They are looking for their forever home together.

Reserved Toby & Lucy

Toby & Lucy

Meet Toby and Lucy, two 1 and a half year 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. They are wary of dogs, so need a home without them.

Reserved Holly


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 and Leo, two 5 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 together.

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 contact the Small Animals team for further information.

Eddie & Trixie

Eddie & Trixie

Meet Eddie and Trixie, two lionhead crosses. Eddie is a 4 year old, neutered male and Trixie is a 6 year old spayed female. Due to their breeds they need regular grooming to keep their fur in tip top condition. They are sweet-natured bunnies who can often be found grazing in their garden and are best friends so need to be homed together. Eddie and Trixie could live as house rabbits as they are litter trained; they are also used to dogs.



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
