THE RSPCA is searching for the owner of a stray tabby and white cat that they believe is at least 20 years old.

A member of the public contacted the RSPCA after they found the cat looking poorly outside their home in Prescot on Sunday, April 27.

After the homeowner took him in for the night the cat was transferred to RSPCA Greater Manchester Animal Hospital for treatment the following morning.

Details on the cat’s microchip show that cat is at least 20 and that the owner lives, or has lived, in St Helens.

RSPCA Animal collection Officer Derek Hampson said: “We know from the microchip details the cat was from Cats Protection back in 1994 so he is at least 20 years old.

“Unfortunately he is a bit poorly at the moment so he is being treated in one of our clinics but his issues all relate to old age.

“He is such an old chap we would love to be able to reunite him with his owner and to get him home where he belongs.

“We would urge anyone who recognises him or who knows where he may be from to contact us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information about the cat should contact the RSPCA on the Inspector line 0300 123 8018.
