When I was first rescued by the Animal Accident Rescue Unit, I was very confused.

I had been living as a stray, spending most of my time keeping a low profile and looking for my next meal. Then one day, I found myself whisked off to a vet to have the matts in my coat cut out and then to an unfamiliar house with strangers in it. Where was I? Were they going to hurt me? I wasn’t sure what was going on so I hissed and spat anytime someone came close.

However, after a few days I began to realise something, these people weren’t trying to hurt me. They talked very softly, moved quietly and gave me food…maybe this wouldn’t be so bad?

And do you know what? It wasn’t. I adapted quickly to my new situation once I realised I wasn’t in danger. Now, I’ve grown so fond of my fosterer I follow her from room to room to see what she’s doing. When she sits down, I like to lie beside her and have even sat on her knee a few times. I quite like playing and enjoy a game of chase. My fosterer says it’s like I’m learning the rules of being a cat – and doing very well at it!

Now while I love my fosterer, I’m not keen on her other cats. I think I’d be best suited to being the only cat in the house.

As you can see from my photo I’m a very handsome black boy, with bright green eyes and a tiny white star on my chest. I’m a large lad but placid with it. I enjoy my food but am not greedy and I’m litter trained. Quite the package really.

I do enjoy peace and quiet and would love to be able to venture outside again. I spend a lot time at the front-door wondering where people disappear to for hours!

If I sound like a perfect gent and the ideal companion for you, please get in touch.


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.  All of our cats are fully vaccinated for their first year, after which time it is the responsibility of the new owner to continue annual vaccinations.

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 Kole, 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.
