Hi! My name is Columbo (or Bo for short)
When I came into the charity I was in a very sorry state.
It appears I’d been severely neglected, and had a badly damaged eye, possibly due to a car accident. I was in a lot of pain and sadly the vet had to remove my eye because it had been so badly injured.
Thankfully I am out of pain and now fully recovered. I’m adjusting to having one eye and my fur is growing back nicely.
Despite what I’ve been through, I really like the company of people and just love a warm knee.
I’m between 5 to 8 years old, energetic, always hungry and very vocal. I will tell you when I want attention!
Because I only have one eye I’ll need to be an indoors cat. I’m more vulnerable to dangers like traffic and dogs so shouldn’t be allowed to go outside.
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 Bo, please contact our Adoption Officer by emailing this volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
