Hi, let me introduce myself; I’m Scout and this is my brother Dill. I’m a short-haired tortoiseshell girl and  Dill is a short-haired black and white boy. Although I’m smaller than Dill, I’m bolder and braver than him and lead us into all sorts of adventures.

We were born at the start of September, and are very close. Since then, we have been making the most of life by exploring and playing every day. Our fosterer says we are very mischievous and curious about absolutely everything and anything that we come across. We have just discovered that we can jump up on really high things and love leaping onto the worktop to steal our fosterer’s plug from the sink.  She’s brought us loads of toys but there’s something really fun about the plug!

We are getting more confident by the day but are still shy with strangers until we get to know them. Although I can be now lured out with treats to meet them! We love other cats and regularly snuggle up with our fosterer’s  cats and once we’ve worn ourselves out by playing, we flop on our fosterer’s knee for  a cuddle.

We both have healthy appetites but  Dill loves his food so much he squeals for his dinner! Our fosterer has to eat quickly with Dill about because he keeps trying to get onto her plate!

I’m not boasting but we nailed litter training on day 1 so we’re now ready for some other challenges. Do you think you can help by giving us a house to explore and being our new family?


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 Dill and Scout, please contact our Adoption Officer on 0115 9985063 after 6pm. This number must not  be used for any other type of enquiry or emergency contact.  Alternatively,  you can email 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 Animal Accident Rescue Unit rescue.  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.
