Cleo is a very pretty cat, as you can see.

It has taken  Cleo several months to show us her true personality. Now she pops into the  room to greet friends and family, even small children She would suit an owner who wants a companion. She will sit on my lap when she’s hungry. And sit on the bed and wait for me to wake up purring away.

She is a big chunky cat,  at 6 klg and so very gentle.  Cleo gets on really well with my other foster cat who is a small male Oriental.  He follows her around the house and they play, eat and sleep together.  She loves to lay on her back with all her paws in the air with the Sun on her tummy meowing to herself.


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 CLEO 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


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.
