We are Simon, Alvin and Theodora – three gorgeous kittens who’ll be looking for loving homes in the near future.

We came into Animal Accident Rescue Unit when a member of public called the helpline to report a mum and three kittens requiring assistance.

Our fosterer says we have all come along way since Christmas and now enjoy some human contact, but learning to trust people has been a big step forward for us.

Our mum is a dark tortoiseshell around a year old, so only a young cat herself. She’s still very scared of humans so not ready to be homed just yet. It’s thought we are from two litters of kittens that our mum had only a few months apart.

As we were feral and living outdoors you’ll understand that we are starting to learn that people aren’t so scary after all and are enjoying exploring inside a house – it’s nice and warm with lots of things to climb on!  Our personalities are starting to shine through and with a bit of time will no doubt make loving members of a family.

We haven’t met any dogs or children yet, and not sure how we’d cope if we did.

We are still under assessment but should be ready to rehome in a few months time,  so keep an eye on the website and the Facebook page for more details about our availability.

– Theodora (no pictures yet – she’s very shy!)  is approximately a 1 year old short-haired black and white girl. She is getting braver and venturing into other rooms with her fosterer’s other cats.

– Simon (pictured) is a 8-months-old semi long-haired black male. He enjoys head bumps with the other cats and playing with them.

–  Alvin (pictured) is a 8-months-old short-haired two tone ginger boy. He also enjoys head bumps with the other cats and playing with them.


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 any of these cats, please contact our Adoption Officer by emailing this volunteer at admin@aaru.org.uk. 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.
