Hi there, my name is Squishie and I was born in May 2016. I’m a beautiful tortoiseshell girl and have that typical tortoiseshell character! 

 At about 5 weeks old a kind stranger took me to the vets as I was very wobbly on my back legs and clearly in quite a lot of pain. A full check-up revealed that nothing was broken but I had probably had an injury to my back end. With no owners and vets bills rising, things weren’t looking great for me. Then the vet had an idea…..could the Animal Accident Rescue Unit step in and help?

 Collaboration started and a plan was agreed, the vet would get me healthy again and the Animal Accident Rescue Unit would foster me and find me a new home. Brilliant!

 I was a bit quiet when I first arrived at my foster home and still very wobbly but my wonderful foster mum gave me special massages, painkillers and lots of love and care. The dedication has paid off as I am now zooming around as if nothing ever happened. I’ve learnt a lot from my foster brother, Spud, and together we can be quite mischievous! 

 I love my foster brother so much and my foster mum thinks I would thrive in a multi cat household, especially cats that are a bit younger and will play with me!

 I’m very inquisitive, there’s nothing I won’t investigate and I do like climbing. I would definitely benefit from an interactive household with parents that will give me plenty of playtime.

 I’m fully litter trained and very clean and I will eat anything you put in front of me, I’m still learning that human food isn’t mine though so you may have to watch your plate around me.

 If you’re looking for a beautiful kitten that will give you hours of playtime and entertainment, I think I could be for you. Please come and meet me soon, I’m sure that my cheeky tortoiseshell charm will win you over immediately!


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 Squishie, 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.
