Huckleberry is currently being introduced to a readily available, hypoallergenic cat food, after standard cat food gave him an upset stomach. Until he is settled on his new diet, he will not be available for adoption. Things are going really well and we expect Huckleberry to be available within the next couple of weeks, so please feel free to visit him if he takes your fancy. Please be aware that Huckleberry will need to remain on this hypoallergenic diet to ensure that his poorly stomach doesn’t return in future.

 

Hello let me introduce myself: my name is Huckleberry. How are you today? My fosterers say I’m the perfect gentlemen, that I’m very polite and enjoy meeting people. In fact the bigger the crowd, the better!

If my fosterers have friends over I will greet each one individually and spend some time on their knee. Well a host has to make his guests feel welcome, doesn’t he?

As you can see from my photos I’m a big, black boy, aged about 5 years old. Not much is known about my history apart from that although I was living as a stray, I was clearly used to people. When I was found by the Animal Accident Rescue Unit I was in a bit of a state. I had infected wounds, fleas and have had to have some teeth removed but I’m on the mend now.

With the love of my fosterers I’ve even started to play, something I hadn’t had a chance to do before! I’m pretty lively and will keep you company by escorting you from room to room. If you sit down, I will make sure your knee doesn’t get cold by sitting on it and when you go to bed I’ll help you fall asleep by snuggling up.

As you would expect, I have lovely table manners and I’m very clean. There are only a couple of requests I’d like to make if that’s ok? I would like a chance to go outside again and sit in the sun and I’d love to be the sole focus of your attention please. Despite the way I’ve been treated in the past, I do prefer people to other animals.

Because of my charming nature, I’ve been described as the perfect cat by my fosterers and the charity photographer said she was smitten when she came to take my photos!

So, if I sound like the perfect companion for you, then do please call.

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 Huckleberry, 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.
