Our Home Pets



Midnight is our 10 year old English Cocker Spaniel. He has lived with us since he was a puppy, and he is very friendly! In his older age, Midnight loves sun lounging in the garden, but is still up for long walks in the woods.

Midnight has NO access to boarding guests.


Florence is a blue-eyed white fur, Netherland Dwarf bunny, born 7th December 2017. Flo is an energetic bunny, who is incredibly loyal and won't go to strangers. Flo has lived with us since she was 8 weeks old. She may look as sweet as sugar, but Florence is often the ring leader in digging up her run and dragging her blankets around!


Lilah is Florence's sister, but a sable coloured Netherland Dwarf. Lilah was born on 7th December 2017 and has lived with me from 8 weeks old. Lilah is inquisitive and charming, and willing to take attention from anyone who'll give her it!

Flo and Li live in a converted pretty-in-pink potting shed, with pictures below.

Ivy Rose

Ivy Rose is a fancy mouse, born April 2017. She's feisty and definitely the dominant mouse in her colony!


Jemima is the wild child of the colony! She's always busy, and I'm not sure she's always aware of other mice around her! Jemima was born in June 2017.

Jemima was used in Pets At Home social media posts in December 2017, pictured on the top of her Christmas tree.


Twinkle is my only bilingual mouse! She responds to her name in English and in French.

Twinkle is the biological sister of Jemima and Luna Belle, born in June 2017.


Matilda is one of our newest additions! She arrived from a local charity rescue in July 2018, aged 6 months. Matilda is a very sweet, but busy girl, who loves her food!

Matilda is the biological sister of Evangelina.


Evangelina is the second half of our duo who arrived from a local charity rescue in July 2018, aged 6 months. She's inquisitive and charming. She is a little more quiet and patient than the rest of the colony.

Evangelina is the biological sister of Matilda.

Our Bunny Palace!

Not available for hire.

With fairy lights in the roof and a dig box in the run, this is our pretty-in-pink bunny palace exclusively used for our girls.

An 8ft x 6ft potting shed, especially for our girls, attached to a 2m x 2m run, with dig box, moon and stars mural, solar powered lights and a fairy style corner. Inside, the pink theme is complemented with soft rugs and furnishings, handmade and personalised items, and shelving to store all the essential items.

Over The Rainbow Bridge: Home Pets Who Have Passed​


Pumpkin was a cheeky soul, a rescue from a Facebook selling page. Due to his prior treatment, Pumpkin only stayed 7 weeks with us and passed in April 2016, aged approx 8 months.


Leo is the reason Just Like Home exists! This is his legacy!

Leo was a charming, brave and intelligent one-eyed hamster. He passed in March 2018, aged 2 years 1 month.


Oswald is my winter white hamster, born in February 2016. Oswald is an inquisitive soul, who wants to talk to anyone and everyone he can!

Oswald was my little best friend. He passed on 2nd November 2018, aged 2 years and 9 months.


Harry is a syrian hamster, born November 2016. Harry is a shy little one, who prefers his own company over the company of humans. He is frequently heard running in his wheel overnight.

Harry had a battle with an abdominal tumour. When he stopped responding to his treatment, we made the heartbreaking decision to let him go on 12th January 2019, aged 26 months.


Cinnamon was a sweet little mouse with sight difficulties.

She passed in May 2018, aged 11 1/2 months, leaving behind her biological sisters Jemima, Twinkle and Luna Belle, and her colony sisters Ivy Rose and Ida Mae.

Luna Belle

Luna Belle is the quietest member of her colony, until it comes to handling. Luna is the most confident in climbing up my arms, inside sleeves and getting herself tangled in my hair!

Luna Belle is the biological sister of Jemima and Twinkle, born June 2017.

Luna Belle passed 21st December 2018.

Ida Mae

Ida Mae is Ivy Rose's biological sister, also born in April 2017. Ida is much more gentle than her sister, and all the younger mice flock to her side.

Ida Mae passed in November 2018.
