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
Barney and Tilly
Barney is a neutered buck, who was born 02.02.07. Tilly is a 2 1/2 year old spayed doe. Barney and Tilly are a very friendly pair of rabbits. They are used to children and like their space. With Barneys advancing years we would dearly like to see them settled in their forever home, where they can get the attention and love they deserve. For more information please contact small animals.
Sam and Nyx
We are a sister pair of chinchilla's of unknown age. We are a very cheeky pair of girls, who like lots of attention and room to run riot. We would like a home where we will get all the attention and room we crave. For more information please contact small animals.
Del and Rodney
We are a pair of baby male mice. We were born on the 13th of March. We are very friendly and like lots of attention. We would like a forever home where we will get lots of fuss and exciting places to explore. For more information please contact small animals.
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
I am a 3 year old neutered boar. I have had a bit of a rough time, but considering this I am quite a curious little boy. I am looking for a home with a companion sow or two. For more information please contact the small animal section.
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.
