The RSPCA has launched its Christmas Rescue to find thousands of pets like these cuties new owners after they’ve spent the festive season in centres
Finding a home should be easy when you’re as cute as these little crackers.
But they spent Christmas in RSPCA centres waiting for a forever home.
The charity has launched its Christmas Rescue to find thousands of pets like them new owners.
Spokeswoman Amy Ockelford said: “It will be the most rewarding adventure you’ll ever have.”
This Cracker is not just for Christmas.

He would like an adult-only home where he’ll be the only pet and have the freedom to go outside when he wants.
2) Asti, Cava, Champagne and Prosecco
Agouti mice Asti, Cava, Champagne and Prosecco can be a little unsure of being handled, so will need time to gain confidence around people.
The friendly four need a home together with lots of fun things to keep them busy.
3) Balthasar, Gaspar and Melchior
Balthasar, Gaspar and Melchior, named after the Three Wise Men, are cheeky degus, who love fun and adventure.
The rodents, native to Chile, like to venture out of their cage to play and explore during the day and have learned to return to their beds.
4) Holly and Ivy
These friendly sisters would like to live indoors or in a large outdoor enclosure.
They can be rehomed together or be put with neutered males. The pair could be good pets for first-time owners or a family with kids.

Stray cat Gabriel came to RSPCA Brighton, in East Sussex, after a member of the public befriended him.
Covered in fleas, he had a nasty infection in his mouth and needed 14 teeth removed.

Claus was sadly given to the RSPCA when his owner could no longer take care of him. He’s friendly and well-natured and loves people.
The six-year-old is looking for a home with another bunny for company. He’d be happy living with children, indoors with lots to keep him busy.
8) Dancer and Prancer
Lop bunny siblings Dancer and Prancer love nothing more than brussel sprouts – except, maybe, each other!
They are very active and intelligent and need lots of space to roam and plenty to do as they can get bored.
But when they do run out of steam, they love to snuggle up and snooze.
9) Mrs Claus
Leopard gecko Mrs Claus hopes to find a magical home.
Rescued alongside 67 other geckos by RSPCA inspectors, the one-year-old is ready for a fresh start.
Geckos can live for 10 to 20 years and grow up to 10in.
Mrs Claus needs to live alone in a suitable vivarium.
Named after the festive tipple, Bailey is sweet and cheeky.
The six-year-old Staffie could live with older children, but would ideally be the only pet and needs a secure, private garden.
Stray Santa was rescued from East London on Christmas Eve last year with an injured leg.
Now living in Hertfordshire, the three-year-old will need patient owners. Santa enjoys strokes and can be chatty.
12) Cupid and Blitzen
The four-month-old kittens were rescued as strays along with their mother.
The moggies need a calm home with patient owners.
Cupid is a bit more outgoing than Blitzen but both would love a new house to explore and feel safe in.
