Peaches_1 Peaches_3 Peaches_2

Hello, my name is Peaches and I am around 7-8 months old.

There isn’t a great deal known about my background, it’s all rather mysterious. My mother was being fed by a kind member of the public and then one day, surprise, she turned up with four kittens. Myself, my sister and two brothers.

We spent the first 6 months of our lives living like this, receiving food from kind people, but never having a home to sleep in or a person to call our own. This meant that we were all a little nervous of humans, as we’ve never really gotten to know one and hadn’t really been handled. When the charity found us, we were separated so that we could have some quality one to one time with our fosterers. I wasn’t sure at first….who was this strange person feeding me, trying to stroke me, pick me up, play with me? It was very confusing and I really struggled.

To start with I hid away in my little cat hut and only left the safety of this when the humans had left the room, but gradually, I’ve started to realise that I’m safe. I’m now more than happy roaming around the house with the other 6 cats I share with and I even let my fosterers stroke me, it feels so good to be loved. I am still wary of new humans and it will take me a while to learn to trust you, so I need somebody that will let me have my space to adjust at my own speed, although I can be bribed with food and catnip and this is sure to win me round much faster! I also love to play with a laser light, that turns me in to a bit of a nut…I’ve still never caught that red dot!

I love children so a home with a family is fine and I’m also quite fond of other cats so that’s not a problem either. I have all the makings of a perfect family pet and I’m also very pretty, or so my fosterer tells me, but it will just take me slightly longer to adjust and trust you. It will be worth it though because once I let myself fall for you, it will be 100% true love.

If I sound like the perfect cat for you, please come and meet me. And don’t be put off if I hide at first, I will come round…..it didn’t take me long to trust the charity’s photographer, as you can see from my very relaxed photos.

 

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.  Owners are requested  to vaccinate their adopted Charity cats, as our  limited funds do not allow us to do so.

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 Peaches, please contact our Adoption Officer on 0115 9985063 after 6pm. This number must not  be used for any other type of enquiry or emergency contact.  Alternatively,  you can email 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 Animal Accident Rescue Unit rescue.  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.
