Hello, my name is Timmy and I’m around 5-6 years old. I’m a gorgeous big fluff-ball, but for some reason I’ve been overlooked for quite some time now.

I’ve been with the Animal Accident Rescue Unit for just over 2 years now and I’ve barley had any interest in me which is puzzling everyone at the charity. I’ve seen many cats come and go but it just never happens for me unfortunately.

My fosterer thinks it’s crazy that I haven’t been snapped up yet, she says I’m such a perfect, relaxed and lovable boy. They try to encourage me to play, and they’ll succeed for a few minutes if they find the right toy, such as a pen or pencil (they’re my favourite), but then I just want to lie down and have a quick cat nap.

I am a very friendly cat and enjoy a good fuss around my head and chin and I do sometimes like to curl up on my fosterer’s lap in the evening, although I’m not so keen on being picked up. I absolutely love my food but I’m currently on a diet, the vet says I’m almost at my ideal weight now though so all the hard work has paid off.

I’m ok around children but would probably be better suited to a home that has slightly older children or better still none at all, that way I can be the centre of attention all the time, which I love!

So if you’re looking for a slightly lazy cat who is fully house trained, very well behaved and exceptionally cute, I think I could be your perfect match. Could you be the one to take me home after such a long wait?

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 Timmy, 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.
