Hello, I’m Billy and I’m around 4 years old. Please, don’t move on. Stay here and listen to my story.  When Animal Accident Rescue Unit found me, I had an awful abscess on the side of my head….it was very painful and I was feeling very sorry for myself. The charity took me straight to the vets who decided that the best thing would be to operate and remove the abscess.  And now I’m absolutely fine.

I’m an all-black cat which apparently makes me less of an appeal to some people. I don’t really understand this and I’m saddened as I’ve been waiting for a home of my own for almost a year now.  I think I look very stylish and I definitely won’t bring you any bad luck;  actually, in many cultures, I’m considered to bring good luck and I’ve been told that whoever ends up adopting me will be very lucky to have me.

If you’re still not sure about owning a black cat, here are some other things to consider 1) my fur won’t show on your little black dress 2) you can tell your friends and family that you adopted a mini-panther 3) we black cats are fashionable because we go with everything; and 4) we need the most help finding loving homes and will be FURever grateful for your love!

I’m also very loving and really enjoy a fuss. I love being around my fosterer, so much so that I will follow her around EVERYWHERE! I can’t stand the thought of missing anything, so I can’t let her out of my sight, she’s started calling me her shadow. I’m also very good with the 5 other cats in the house, so I would be suitable for a home that already has cats.

I’m playful and love my toys, I’m litter trained, happy to be picked up and not at all picky about my food. My fosterer says I have a great temperament and will just make the perfect addition to somebody’s home.

So if you’re looking for a lucky charm that will reward you with endless love and affection then I’m your cat, I can’t wait to become your shadow.


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 Billy, 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 .  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.
