The RSPCA is calling on people to adopt one of these animals from its centre in Martlesham.

Do you have space in your home for Hogan?Do you have space in your home for Hogan?

First on the list is the male tabby, Hogan. A big, gentle cat that loves to lounge around and watch the world go by.

He loves a good brush especially on the cheeks and finding comfy places to nap.

And, ideally a home where he is the only pet would be best.

Snuffles and Alana are next – these two came into the centre separately but have formed a strong bond.

How about giving a home to Snuffles and Anya?How about giving a home to Snuffles and Anya?

They are a friendly pair of rabbits that enjoy the company of people giving them attention.

Snuffles and Alana would love to find a home together.

Fidget the cat definitely lives up to his namesake by always staying active and loving a bit of fuss.

He is definitely a people cat often wanting to be stroked and get a bit of fuss and is more than happy to sit on your lap, but he does love a bit of sunbathing in the garden.

How about opening your home to the active Fidget the cat?How about opening your home to the active Fidget the cat?

If you think Fidget is the cat for you, then make sure you get some ping pong balls in as he loves to chase and play with them and living up to his name.

Next up is cat Cloud. When he first came into the centre there were concerns he had a broken leg, but checks found he was healthy and walks a bit differently to other felines.

He is a sensitive but sweet boy, looking for a calm home where there isn’t too much hustle and bustle, and loves very much to sit next to you and get some fuss.

He is a laid back cat that enjoys the comforts of indoor living. He isn’t too interested in toys but will give a rod toy the odd swipe when the mood takes him.


Next on our list is Lipsy, the one-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, a nervous girl when she first meets new people but once she gets comfortable her personality really shines through.

She is very active as she is so young, especially loving going out on walks, chasing toys and a good game of football.

Lipsy can live with a suitably matched dog depending on them meeting at the centre, and can also live with teenage children but cannot be rehomed with a cat.

This happy girl is Stella, a nine-year-old cross. A loving, affectionate and playful girl who loves nothing more than a good run around.

Could this playful girl be your new best friend?Could this playful girl be your new best friend?

Stella is a clever girl and knows a number of tricks already like sit, paw, leave and also responds to a dog whistle for her recall when out in the park.

Stella would be best suited to a home with older children, and could also possibly live with a calm male dog, or a cat used to living with dogs, depending on them meeting.

How about a different kind of pet in this adult polecat, Tiberius

A friendly boy who has been handled well in the past, he would like a home able to continue socialising him.

Can you give this gentle lady her new forever home?Can you give this gentle lady her new forever home?

He currently is living alone in the centre but would love to find a home with some ferret friends to keep him company but can be suited to a home on his own.

The RSPCA assures families that all cats, dogs, ferrets and rabbits that are offered for adoption have been vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.

An adoption fee of £150 for dogs, £60 for cats and £25 for rabbits and ferrets, is charged to help cover the cost of getting the animals ready for their new homes.
