Hi, my name is Joe and I am around 4-5 years old, although according to my fosterer, I act like a kitten!

I was rescued by the kind people at the Animal Accident Rescue Unit around a year ago now, and I was in a very sorry state. I had cat flu…I can’t even imagine how I would have ended up without them, it wouldn’t have been a happy ending, that’s for sure.

Luckily for me though, I was found, and I started treatment immediately. I have been receiving anti-biotic treatment over the last year, but due to the damage done, I will have to take this medication for the rest of my life. My fosterer thinks I don’t know about the tablets, but I do…….she hides them in my food but I don’t mind and take them without any fuss, after all, they are keeping me well.

Despite the rough time I’ve had, I am a very loving, fun cat. I absolutely love a cuddle, the closer I can get to you the better, I just adore human contact. I am extremely playful and love running from one room to the next, trying to ‘catch’ the birds in the garden outside. I am also partial to watching the TV, particularly when there are animals on….I try and play with them but I’m not sure they like me as I just get ignored.

I am well in myself and I have very few issues, it’s just that I can get a bit snotty without my tablets, which isn’t pleasant for me or the fosterer!

I’m hoping that I sound like the right cat for you. I’m looking for somebody who doesn’t mind being sneezed on (occasionally), somebody who will commit to giving me the on-going medication I require (to stop me sneezing on you), somebody who will love me, cuddle me, feed me and play with me. I should also be kept as an indoor cat only and be the only cat in the household, this is due to me being a carrier for cat flu, I wouldn’t want to make other cats poorly.

 

Around 4-5 years old.

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 Joe, 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.
