WITH bright eyes and soft furry bodies, they would make someone the perfect cuddly companion.

But the adorable rabbits, dogs and cats at the Felixstowe Blue Cross centre will be spending Christmas alone this year, unless they are adopted by kind-hearted animal lovers in the region.

The centre is desperately trying to find homes for the animals, who otherwise will spend the festive period in kennels.

Pauline Ivatt, a dog adviser based at the centre, said: “These animals will be kept in kennels through the Christmas period, so they are desperate to find the right home.

“The best present these animals could have this year is to be in the bosom of a loving home.”

Among the homeless pets is Hooch, a three-year-old male bearded collie cross who came to the centre in October.

Hooch is described as a nervous dog, so would need a home with people who understand it and are willing to work with it to gain more confidence.

Another dog looking for love is Arthur, an eight-month old male Labrador cross.

Arthur needs a home with people who enjoy dog training and lots of long walks because it is full of energy and enthusiasm.

Redman is a male three-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is full of character and energy.

It would ideally suit a home with people that can take it on long walks and keep up with its energy. The dog also needs to be with people who know and understand the behaviour of the breed.

Biff is a five-year-old Jack Russell Terrier cross who came into the centre because it does not like being left alone and gets upset. It is looking for a home where someone can be there with it most of the time.

Two-year-old Ambroise, a white male cat, has been looking for a new family for eight months. It is in need of a caring home with someone who would respect its independence.

But the cat is looking for a home where it is the only pet with no children, so it can receive its owner's full attention.

George, an 11-year-old long-haired male cat, is also looking for a similar home without children and no other animals as it is a bit nervous.

Dillon and Ruby are two large rabbits looking for love and affection. They came into centre in June and would most suit a home with a family with older children.

There are many other animals at the centre also looking for homes and anyone interested in rehoming an animal can contact the Felixstowe Blue Cross on 01394 283254.
