Dora_2 Dora_1








Hi, my name is Dora and I love nothing more than exploring.

No shoe is left unturned and no cupboard undiscovered. I am interested in everything. Some may call me nosey but I prefer to think of myself as curious! One day, when I’m old enough, I hope to have a garden that I can claim as mine and spend long, sunny days inspecting all of the weird and wonderful things you find in the great outdoors. I want to roll in the grass, attack that leaf blowing in the wind, chase those pesky flies and find a sunny patch to sunbathe in when all that exploring has tired me out.

I’m a tortoiseshell girl which naturally makes me inquisitive and playful. I love playing with my brother Archie and step sister Lois. My fosterer has been handling me lots so I’m really getting used to human contact, playing with humans can be great fun! I can’t wait to find my very own human. My mummy tells me that there is no better life than spending it with a human that loves and cares for you. Maybe you can be that human?
If I sound like the perfect kitten for you then please come a meet me, I’m here waiting.

Around 5 weeks 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 DORA PLEASE CONTACT OUR ADOPTION VOLUNTEER ON 0115 9984307 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.
