**Adopted 30/10/2015**

Hi, I’m Monica and the larger black and white cat is my soulmate, Hayden. Both of us are around 4-5 years of age.

Despite the fact we’ve only known each other for around a year, we have become absolutely inseparable. We didn’t know each other before being found by the charity, I had been abandoned and Hayden had lived a rough life as a stray for quite a while. As luck would have it, we both ended up being placed with the same fosterer and immediately hit it off. So much so that when it came to moving us to a new fosterer, it was decided to keep us together.

Both of us were a little wary of people to start with, Hayden even more so than myself, but we found great comfort in having each other and have slowly helped each other come out of our shells. We are both far more comfortable now around humans, but Hayden doesn’t really like children, sudden movements or loud noises…he’ll still run and hide at times but he is improving all the time and I usually manage to talk him out of hiding again. I’m a little braver, but still prefer the quiet life!

Our days consist of the following – we play together, chase each other, enjoy catnip together and then when we’re tired out, we like to curl up together, with our legs wrapped around each other and have a lovely snooze in front of the window (waking occasionally to watch the squirrel run by). We do so much together that is was decided we just couldn’t be separated, it would break our hearts. Therefore we are looking for a home together, a home that is quiet and calm with somebody that will give us time to readjust to new surroundings at our own pace. Because Hayden can still be nervous, we would be better suited to a home without children.

We are both adorable cats, very friendly and show no signs of aggression – I enjoy the occasional sit on a lap whereas Hayden prefers to lie next to our fosterer, flipping over to let her tickle his belly! He loves a good brush and likes to head bump against our fosterer’s forehead. Hayden has no teeth whatsoever, he had to have them all removed which I was very pleased about as he’s much happier now and his breath is lovely and fresh – it doesn’t hinder him eating either, just look at the size of him!

I am much smaller than Hayden, about half the size in fact, but I definitely wear the trousers in this relationship! My fosterer tells me how beautiful I am, the perfect little package, she says I look very stylish and well kept…I do like to look after myself.

So all this love story needs now is a happy ending….a forever home where two soulmates get to spend the rest of their lives together, chasing leaves together in the garden, enjoying the love and security of our new family together. It’s very rare to find two cats as happy together as we are, so if you are looking to adopt more than one cat, we really are the perfect duo for you. Hayden and I can’t wait to meet you….well at least I can’t, Hayden may hide for the first few minutes but I’m sure I’ll be able to talk him out again.


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.  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 Hayden and Monica, 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  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.
