Hi, my name is Brian and I am around 2 years old. Because I was not neutered when found by the Animal Accident Rescue Unit, my natural instinct was to fight for territory and food, it wasn’t my fault, it was my hormones making me do it. I had clearly had a rough time of it…..I was extremely thin, covered in scratches and had patches of fur missing.

Since being neutered, everything feels different and I am now in a warm, safe place, so I no longer feel the need to fight for anything. I am just content….with everything!

I love sitting up high so will climb where possible and one of my favourite pastimes is sitting by the window watching the squirrels running around outside. I love cuddles and I love curling up on knees, it’s so warm and cosy. I’m calm, friendly, quiet and I am quite happy being around other cats. Like I said, I’m content with everything really. When you’ve known life to be as tough as I have, you really appreciate the small things like having fresh water whenever I want and being fed without having to hunt, beg or fight….seriously, what’s not to enjoy about life in a loving home? It’s perfect and what I’ve always wanted. But it’s not my forever home……as much as I love it, I can’t wait to find that special someone who will take me home and love me for the rest of my life.

So if you want a cat that will appreciate every little thing you do for it and that will happily spend hours snuggling with you on the sofa, then you need to come and meet me, I’m already looking forward to a cuddle with you.


Around 2 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 BRIAN PLEASE CONTACT OUR ADOPTION VOLUNTEER ON 0115 9985063 after 6pm. This number MUST NOT be used for any other type of enquiry or emergency.  Alternatively you can email this volunteer at

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.
