Baxter – an affectionate boy looking for a home of his own

Hi, my name is Baxter and I am roughly 6 years old. I am an all-black cat, which already means I’m at a disadvantage when looking for a new home. You see a lot of people overlook black cats, I’m not really sure why as I think we happen to be pretty special and rather handsome, if I do say so myself. So if you’re reading my story, that means I’m already past one hurdle as you didn’t skip past me.

I’m a lovely, affectionate boy and I will double or maybe even triple my affection when I’m hungry…..I like to think that it helps charm you in to feeding me!

When the Animal Accident Rescue Unit found me I was suffering from cat flu. Although this has cleared up, it has left me with runny eyes. This doesn’t cause me a great deal of problems and if I can’t be bothered to clean this myself, I will let my fosterer gently wipe my eyes clean with a tissue. It doesn’t require any treatment, but it may well suggest that I am now a carrier of cat flu. Because of this, it is 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’m still fine to go outdoors, but just shouldn’t share my living quarters with another cat. I’m perfectly fine with that as it means 100% of your attention will go to me, plus I won’t have to share my food or toys.

I enjoy playing and will happily entertain myself with my toys, but I also love chasing those dangly toys on poles and my fosterers dressing gown cord! I can get a bit nippy……not in aggressive way, I like to call them love bites. My fosterer doesn’t seem to mind but she has said I’d probably be best to be rehomed to a home without young children as they may not appreciate my love nips quite so much.

As I mentioned above, I do like attention and I find it very frustrating when my fosterer speaks to other humans down that telephone thingy, I mean why would she want to speak to humans when she has me? Anyway, I’ll allow this for so long but after a while I will vocalise my frustration and just remind her that I’m here waiting when she’s done.

To sum me up, I’m affectionate, playful, handsome, litter trained and not picky with food…..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 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 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.
