Hello, my name is Navarre and I am around 5 years old. As you can see I am a gorgeous, long-haired tabby boy.

If you’re wondering where my rather exotic sounding name comes from, it is based on a character from one of my fosterer’s favourite films, Ladyhawke. I am named after Captain Etienne of Navarre……Captain, I quite like the sound of that!

When I was taken in by the Animal Accident Rescue Unit, I had been stray for a while, nobody really knows how long. I had wounds on the back of my neck and just looked in a bit of a sorry state. Other than the wounds, which are now fully healed, I was given a clean bill of health by the vet who said I had nothing wrong with me that some love and care wouldn’t fix.

When I first arrived at my fosterer’s home, I was very nervous. Everything was new and scary, so for the first few days I have to admit, I did hide away. It didn’t take me long though to start to come out of my shell. I quickly realised that I could trust my fosterer and that was it, there’s been no stopping me since! My fosterer is amazed at how much I have changed, my true personality is now really shining through.

I’ve been described as a loveable rogue which I think sums me up quite well. I’m very friendly and really enjoy human company. I wouldn’t say I’m a lap cat, but I love to be close to my fosterer and will happily be picked up for a cuddle when I’m in the mood, I’m also partial to the occasional belly rub.

I’m currently living with other cats and am coping with this quite well, I’m even comfortable sharing the cat towers with them. This means that I may well be suited to a home with other cats. I would rather not be homed with young children though, I’d be much better suited to slightly older children.

I love playing and I although I have my favourite squeaky mouse, I’ll happily play with most toys. I’m also fully litter trained, very well behaved and not at all picky about food.

All I need now is a loving home to call my own, so if this Captain sounds perfect to join your forces, please don’t hesitate to come and meet me.


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 Navarre, 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.
