Rufus means ‘red haired’ in Latin and, as a handsome ginger lad, I have to say it suits me rather well!

I was rescued by  Animal Accident Rescue Unit after being involved in a car accident. Thankfully, I’ve made a full recovery and am now looking for a special someone to adopt me.

I am searching for a person who will let me laze on their knee and snuggle up to them in bed, who will be my playmate and best buddy. I’m very affectionate and love attention from humans of all sizes, but I can also quite happily amuse myself with a good game of ball.

If you are looking for someone to spend quality time with, then look no further!

I can’t remember my birthday but I’m about 1 year old.


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 Rufus, 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  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.
