Hi I’m Barnie, a comical looking black and white boy of about 2-years-old. Some people think my ‘moustache’ makes me look a bit grumpy but I can assure you I’m not!

There are two important things you need to know about me: Firstly, I just love playing and have a real weakness for feathers. Secondly, I adore food, possibly even more than feathers!

My fosterer thinks this is because I am still not used to being fed regularly. And just  in case you aren’t sure I’m hungry, I will parade up and down meowing noisily to tell you.

I spend a lot of the time on the widowsill, dreaming of having adventures outside. But I also enjoy spending time with you and am getting used to being fussed and groomed. I love having a human knee to sit on and will just melt if you tickle my chin!

My fosterer has another cat that I tolerate but I would prefer to be the sole focus of your attention.

So if you are looking for a fun and friendly cat, please give the Animal Accident Rescue Unit a call.


All our cats are “snap” blood-tested, at the vets,  for FIV/FeLV (the result is deemed negative unless clearly stated.)

All cats have been examined and treated by a vet and received flea and worming treatment. They are micro-chipped and litter-trained.  Owners are requested  to vaccinate their adopted Charity cats, as our  limited funds do not allow us to do so.

Adult cats are neutered and kittens under 6 months of age will need to be neutered by their new owner.
We recommend that all cats are kept indoors for around 6 to 8 weeks, to allow time to bond with their new owner and adjust to their new surroundings.  Kittens should always be kept indoors until neutered and then be supervised, with only limited access outdoors. It is recommended by all cat welfare societies that cats be kept inside at night, as they are vulnerable to many dangers.

if you are interested in Barnie, please contact our Adoption Officer on 0115 9985063 after 6pm. This number must not  be used for any other type of enquiry or emergency contact.  Alternatively,  you can email this volunteer at .  You will receive a response as soon as possible.

The Charity is run entirely by volunteers and is always in urgent need of additional fosterers to foster the cats that Animal Accident Rescue Unit rescue.  The Charity has no central base, office or cattery and cats are fostered in individual  volunteers’ homes as pets, in and around the Nottingham area.

All potential adoptions will require a successful homecheck and we don’t rehome on or near busier roads, unless the cat is suitable to  be an indoor only pet.
