Edgar has now been adopted.

My name is Edgar and, wow, what a difference a few months makes. Back in May, I was living as a stray and desperately ill. I was so thin and had terrible diarrhoea, you could see my bones jutting out from underneath my fur. 

Luckily I was found by Animal Accident Rescue Unit and taken to the vets. After being put on a special diet and receiving lots of love from my fosterers, I’m now a healthy weight with glossy fur and have the sparkle back in my eyes. I’m about 3 years old and a handsome black and white boy.

According to my fosterers I very quickly settled into my new house and soon started to show my cheeky personality. They call me their little monkey as I love zooming about and jumping on things, especially on top of the wardrobe.  Playing is so much fun; throw me a ball and I’ll leap about after it for hours. 

I’m very affectionate and love to show my humans how much they mean to me by kissing them on their lips and snuggling in a warm lap for a cuddle. I also remind them when they should be doing things like feeding me or giving me a treat by meowing and nibbling their feet!

At night I like to snuggle up and keep them company. I’m so affectionate in fact, I’d probably be best as an only cat. I’m very sociable and like to greet all visitors and make them feel welcome. However, as I’ve not met any children or dogs I’m not sure how I’d get on with them.

The only thing my new owner would need to do is continue with my special biscuits as my tummy is fine on my new diet.

Litter trained, vaccinated and ready to go – all I need now is a loving family! So why not come and visit me? My cheeky personality is sure to win you over.


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 Edgar, 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.
