Hi, my name is Honey and I am about 18 months old.

When I first came to stay with my fosterer (along with my babies, Dora and Archie), I was a very scared and timid cat. I had been through a lot of changes, the biggest of all was becoming a mum. I felt let down by humans so I didn’t know who to trust initially.

I was wary if anyone approached me or my babies, but my fosterer took her time to slowly earn my trust. It took her a few days but slowly I let her get closer and closer until one day, I let her stroke me and my babies. I’d forgotten how lovely humans can be but I’m starting to learn this again and now love a good fuss.

I am a very calm cat and even when I’ve been extremely frightened, I’ve always remained friendly and will not lash out, growl or hiss at you.

My fosterer tells me that I will make somebody a loyal, loving cat. I just need an owner that will give me time to adjust to a new environment and let me approach you at my own pace. Once I’ve settled in and learnt to trust you, I will love you unconditionally.

Please come and say hello, I’m ready and waiting to meet you.

Around 18 months 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 HONEY 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.
