Hello, I’m Bobby. I’m around 3 years old and I am a very handsome, healthy cat. I haven’t always looked or felt this good though.

When I was rescued I was a very poorly boy. I had severe cat flu and my eyes were causing me a lot of discomfort. I couldn’t believe my luck when somebody actually wanted to care for me, it’s been a while. It’s taken some time for me to get better but with the proper treatment and a loving, warm home, I have overcome my illness and am now ready to find my forever home.

I am a little timid, but you have to forgive me for that, when you’ve been left out in the cold and wet like I was, it can be hard to trust people again. I am getting much better though and I do love having a little fuss with my fosterer. Because of this I would be better suited to a calm, quiet home, with people who understand that if you give me time and space, I will trust you and be a loyal, loving cat.

I absolutely love my food and I will tell you when I’m hungry. I also love to have the odd treat, after spending time wondering where my next meal would come from, I can’t believe my luck that I now get food and treats!

So what do you think, could I be your perfect cat?

Around 3 years 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 BOBBY  PLEASE CONTACT OUR ADOPTION VOLUNTEER ON 0115 9984307 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.
