Lucy is looking for a new home following the passing of her previous owner

Hi there. My name is Lucy and I am about 6 years old.

Up until a few months ago, I was living happily with my lovely owner. She was an amazing lady and dedicated her life to rescuing stray cats. Very sadly, she passed away suddenly leaving us very shocked and upset. Her family were desperate to ensure that we found new, loving homes but unfortunately could not rehome us themselves. That’s when they contacted the Animal Accident Rescue Unit to see if they could help.

Amazingly, the Animal Accident Rescue Unit agreed to take myself and my three adopted siblings, Cherry, Cathy and Sukie.

Now, did you know that black and white cats can take much longer to rehome? I’m hoping that since you’re reading my story, this hasn’t put you off me, as I am truly a gorgeous girl desperate for a special home. By adopting me you would be doing a great thing, adoption is great anyway, but taking in a cat that may well get overlooked deserves two gold stars.

I’m rather shy and quite skittish. My fosterer says I sometimes jump at my own shadow. This means that I am looking for a special home. It needs to be calm and quiet and my new owners should be patient and allow me to adapt to my new life in my own time. I am extremely affectionate with my fosterer, but it doesn’t take much to scare me away, such as the other cats that live with me. Therefore I would be better suited as the only cat in the household and would be better with older children only.

I also require a special diet due to me having a sensitive tummy, but this is readily available in most pet shops so easy enough to get hold of. The charity will be able to give you all the information you need about this.

So if you have the perfect home for me and are willing to give me the time and patience I need to settle in, I will reward you with love, fuss and my complete devotion. I hope to meet you soon.


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 Lucy, please contact our Adoption Officer by emailing this volunteer at 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.
