Mali has now been adopted.


Hi I’m Mali and I’m quite a special girl, so I’m looking for a special home and lots of love.

I was heavily pregnant when I was left outside a police station in a cardboard box. The Animal Accident Rescue Unit took me to a vets, where I gave birth to five gorgeous kittens that night.

Now all my kittens have grown up and been adopted but I’m still waiting for someone to give me my forever home. I look out the window at the garden and wonder if my kittens are all having a good time while I’m still waiting for my own place, where I can go and explore outside again.

As you might expect, because of my difficult start I’m nervous of people until I get to know them. I need someone who will spend time building my confidence and give me space to get used to my new environment. A quiet house with adults would suit me best. I’m sure I’d make a lovely pet for someone on their own, who will be patient and help me to overcome my initial fear of people.

I might run and hide when I first meet you. However, once I’m settled, I love being stroked and groomed and sleeping on the bed with you if you’ll let me. My fosterer says no matter how scared I’ve been, I’m always calm and gentle and I’m one of the sweetest cats she’s had.

I’m almost two years old now with a glossy black coat as smooth as silk and great big beautiful green eyes. Being a young cat, I can be very playful and enjoy a game of chasing the toy mouse with my fosterer. I’ve just discovered treats – who knew chicken and ham were so tasty?!  I’m not fussy with my food though – I eat anything I’m given and I keep myself very clean.

I’m confident around other animals and get on very well with my fosterer’s other three cats. I’m not even fazed when a dog comes to visit even though he sticks his nose right in my face, so I think I’d be ok in a house with other pets.

When you come to see me, I will no doubt hide but once I know it’s ok, I’ll come out and say hi. So if you have patience and can offer me a loving home, I’ll reward you with all my purrs and sweet, loving nature.


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 Mali, 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.
