Oscar has now been adopted.


I’m Oscar, a stunning pure white boy with bright blue eyes and a pink nose. I know it’s hard to believe but I was a stray for a while before being picked up by the Animal Accident Rescue Unit!

I’m about five years old but very playful. Just show me a ball and I can entertain myself for hours! My fosterer says he often hears thundering upstairs, only to investigate and it’s just me charging about with a toy.

I have impeccable manners, I tell my fosterer when I would like attention, food or (ahem) when my litter tray need changing. He knows when I meow it means one of those three things! Also, when he comes home from work, I like to be there to greet him and welcome him home.

Now I am quite shy and like to assess situations before deciding what to do. It took me a while to come out from under the bed when I first moved into my foster home. However, now I happily sit by my fosterer in the evening or jump onto the bed for a fuss.

I’m getting good with visitors too, although I like to suss them out before approaching. I’m interested in everything that’s going on but like to do things in my own time.

I am ok with other cats. Well in truth I adore my fosterer’s cat and love following her about and seeing what she’s up to. I like to sleep close to where she’s sleeping, although sadly the relationship is unrequited.

My fosterer says I’m the most charming and gentle cat he’s met. I will need someone who has  time and patience to keep on developing my confidence and because of my cautious nature, I’d probably be best suited an adult house.


So if you are that special someone, and are looking for a handsome and polite cat – look no further!

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 Oscar, 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.
