My name is Bandit and I am a 6 week old little girl.

Although I look like a black cat in my photo, when the light catches me, I am more of a dark, charcoal tabby. My fosterer says I have beautiful fur and I hope that the fact I am almost black doesn’t put you off. For some reason, black cats don’t always get adopted as quickly. I don’t really understand why, I thought black never went out of fashion?

I am the quietest cat of my litter and can be a little timid, but I am starting to come out of my shell. I’m friendly and do enjoy having a stroke but it will just take me a little longer to really come out of myself.

I am really looking forward to finding my new family and hope that you may be the one for me. Please come and meet me and give the shy cat a chance, I won’t disappoint you.


Around 6 weeks old.

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 Bandit  PLEASE CONTACT OUR ADOPTION VOLUNTEER ON 0115 9985063 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.
