Hi there, I’m Archie, a gorgeous, ginger boy looking for my forever home.

I am a very bright, bouncy, playful boy, who loves human contact. I’ve already learnt to come to my name and I love to roll over and get my belly tickled. All this and I’m only a few weeks old, imagine how clever I will be as I grow up!

My fosterer tells me I’m very handsome and I do love to pull some cute poses so that I get everyone’s attention.

I absolutely love to play, especially with anything attached to string. I’m also good around other cats and currently share my home with my mummy, sister Dora and step sister Lois. My fosterer also has several of her own cats and I’m not phased by this at all.

If I sound like the perfect kitten to join your family, then I would love to meet you. I am sure to win you over with my handsome ginger face, you never know, I may also let you stroke my belly.

Born 18th June 2014

All our cats are “snap” blood-tested at the Vets for FIV/Felv (the result is negative unless CLEARLY stated.)

All cats have received flea and worming treatment and are micro-chipped and litter-trained.

ADULT cats are neutered and KITTENS under 6 months old will need to be neutered by their new owner.

We recommend that ALL cats are kept indoors for around 6 – 8 weeks, to bond with their new owner and so that you can vaccinate them.  KITTENS should always be kept indoors until neutered and afterwards should be supervised, with only limited access outdoors and never be allowed out at night, as they are vulnerable to many dangers.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ARCHIE PLEASE CONTACT OUR ADOPTION VOLUNTEER ON 0115 9984307 after 6pm. This number MUST NOT be used for any other type of enquiry or emergency.  Alternatively you can email this volunteer at

We are run entirely by volunteers, we have no office or cattery so please be aware and we will reply ASAP, thank-you.

ALL ADOPTIONS will require a successful homecheck and we don’t rehome on/near busier roads, sorry.

NB.  We are always in urgent need of additional fosterers to help us foster the cats that AARU rescue.
