Ellie – a sweet natured girl

Imagine bringing up two litters of kittens in the wild? Surviving on your wits from day-to-day and looking after four babies in the depths of winter?

Well that’s what happened to me, until we were rescued from a member of the public’s garden after they called the Animal Accident Rescue Unit.

So the last few months have been a whirlwind. I’ve had to adjust to living in a house (how nice after being a stray!) and I’ve also finished weaning my kittens; Vulcan, Victor, Jemma and Peaches, who are looking for homes too.

My fosterer has slowly been introducing me to things pet cats do and I must say, I’m rather getting the hang of it! Who knew that toy mice and chasing string could be so much fun? I just love cat food too, especially those cat stick treats. Yum!

Once I get to know you I don’t mind being picked up and enjoy a good fuss. I also like to sleep on the bed (what a treat!) and sit on the windowsill, gazing out of the window.

I’m about two years old and have been told by several people that I’m very sweet natured and a dainty little girl.

Because of my background I’m still nervous if there are lots of people about so I’d probably suit an older family. My fosterer has other cats, which I’m a bit wary of but gradually getting used to them.

So if you are looking for a sweet natured, little cat who will reward you with her trust and love, please get in touch.

All cats have been examined and treated by a vet and received flea and worming treatment. They are micro-chipped and litter-trained.  Owners are requested  to vaccinate their adopted Charity cats, as our  limited funds do not allow us to do so.

 

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 Ellie, 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.

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.
