A traumatised cat that will not be touched is among a host of potential pets that need a home in Norfolk.
Jaxx is hoping to find his own home where he will be loved and cared for after surviving as a stray for a number of years.
East Coast Pet Rescue, a small self-funded rescue which cares for and rehabilitates animals, said the 12-year-old grey and white cat arrived in their care "worse for wear".
He is currently having veterinary treatment and is described as having a relaxed friendly personality.
Samba was also a long-term stray who was in a "poorly way" when he was taken to the rescue and was previously very dehydrated.

He needs to have blood tests before he can be rehomed but these have been postponed due to the dehydration.
The rescue team said he was not comfortable enough to be touched and stroked and that he will need an owner who would be "happy to give him all the time in the world to learn to trust".

They added: "He loves to chat to you and enjoys to play."
Peppa was taken to the rescue centre after her owner died.
The "gentle, sweet-natured cat" has always been an indoor cat. But the rescue centre said once she was confident in her new home she could be slowly introduced to having some time in a safe garden away from roads.
Guinea pigs Marigold, Daisy and Buttercup are looking for a home together. The females are said to be "very active" and in need lots of space.
And eight-month-old rabbits Maggie and Morgan are also looking for a home in which they can live together.
East Coast Pet Rescue said rabbits were the most neglected pets in the UK and that it was important that their new owner was able to provide adequate housing for the sisters.
All of its animals are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before rehoming and adoptions are subject to a successful home visit and an adoption fee.
