Hi I’m Baxter and I’ve been with Animal Accident Rescue Unit for a while and for some reason I’ve been overlooked by potential adopters.

I really don’t understand why as I’m a lovely friendly boy who just adores attention and am a firm favourite with the Charity’s fosterers. I do have a few health problems but please, please don’t let that put you off.

When the Charity found me, I was suffering from cat flu. Although this has cleared up, it has left me with runny eyes. It doesn’t require treatment, but it may mean that I am now a carrier of cat flu.

Because of this it’s best that I am rehomed as the only cat in the household as living in close proximity to other cats could cause this to be passed on. I can go outdoors, but shouldn’t share my living quarters with another cat.

However, this is fine with me as it means  I’ll have 100% of your attention,  plus I won’t have to share my food or toys!

I do have an allergy for which I’m currently receiving treatment and I’m finding using a Feliway diffuser helpful. I have lost some hair because of my allergy but it’s expected to grow back, so soon I’ll be back to my handsome self.

I might be approximately 7-years-old but I really enjoy playing and will happily entertain myself with my toys.  I also love chasing dangly toys on poles and my fosterer’s dressing gown cord!

I am also on a special food which is widely available, and doesn’t have to be brought from the vet.

As I said, I do like attention and will happily remind you that I’m here by meowing until you give me some love! I also will give you love nibbles just to show you how much I care.

So to sum up, I’m affectionate, playful, handsome and litter trained …..I also love to curl up in a sunny spot to snooze the day away.

I sound pretty perfect don’t I? If you agree, I would love to meet you, hopefully you can give me the special home that I am longing for.

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.   All of our cats are fully vaccinated for their first year, after which time it is the responsibility of the new owner to continue annual vaccinations.

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 Baxter, please contact our Adoption Officer by emailing this volunteer at admin@aaru.org.uk. 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 are rescued by Animal Accident Rescue Unit. 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.
