Lily has now been adopted.

 

Hi there, my name is Lily and I’m a very pretty, black girl aged between 2-3 years old.

Very little is known about my past but it’s clear that I’ve not had the best start to life. I was living as a stray for quite some time which has been very hard for me. I’ve never really had a settled life with humans, so I’m still getting used to living in a home and receiving the care and attention I need. It’s all a bit strange really.

I can be quite timid and although I enjoy being in the same room as my fosterers, I’m not keen on contact at the moment and will shy away if you try to stroke me….unless I’m eating and then you can stroke away, nothing puts me off my food! I’m certain that I will get more and more comfortable with human contact as the time passes, I just need to learn to trust again.

I’m very playful and will spend all evening wondering around the living room trying to find something new to play with, I have numerous toys but I’ll quite happily chase anything, a bit of stray cat litter is a favourite of mine! I’ve become very good friends with my fosterers cat, Jemima, so there’s a good chance that I could go to a home that has cats already. I also love my fosterers pug, Butch, and insist on snuggling up with him for a nap despite his objections.

Ideally I’m looking for a home without young children, I will tolerate them but I’m not keen and think I will be able to come out of my shell even more if I had a slightly quieter home. I need a special someone who will give me the time to adjust to my new surroundings but who will also have plenty of time to spend with me so that we can build that very special bond that I’m longing for.

I’m quite a vocal cat and my fosterer says I sing to the moon at night, along with some other unusual cat noises that I like to entertain her with. I’m very clean, litter trained and my fosterer describes me as having a lovely presence about me.

If I sound like the perfect cat for you, please come and meet me. My fosterer says that whoever adopts me will be a very lucky human indeed, but I think I will be the lucky one.

 

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 Lily, please contact our Adoption Officer by emailing 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 are rescued by Animal Accident Rescue Unit. 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.
