Stray cat who struggled outside in the cold for months in need of loving home
- Credit: RSPCA East Norfolk
The RSPCA East Norfolk are hoping to rehome a cat who lived on the streets fending for himself.
Patch, who is thought to be around 12 years old, came to the RSPCA as a stray and was suffering from painful ulcers in his mouth.
He was found to be microchipped but the details were out of date, and after advertising the charity found his elderly owner had gone into hospital with no record after that.
After receiving treatment from the RSPCA Patch is feeling much better, but he needs a home of his own.
RSPCA staff member Faye Howard said: 'Patch is always purring and loves to be around people.

'He deserves a nice home where he will be looked after and loved after a hard few months out in the cold struggling.'
Patch has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus so would need to be rehomed as an indoor cat, which the RSPCA said would suit him well as he is happiest indoors.

Lacey is a nervous cat looking for an indoor home with an experienced owner. She can become very anxious at times so needs a quiet home and some extra time and patience for her to settle in.
Belle is four years old and described as a friendly cat who likes to be around people. She would fit well into a family home.
Midnight is described as a friendly but independent cat, she likes her own space but staff at the cattery say she will happily come to you for a fuss. She would be happiest in an adult home as the only cat.
