The RSPCA East Norfolk is hoping to rehome a cat who was brought into the branch after being hit by a car.

Hammer, who is around 10 years old, was suffering from a broken jaw, pelvis and ribs after the incident and even after recovering he had an ulcer in his eye which meant it had to be removed.

Staff at the RSPCA East Norfolk where he has been cared for said: “He is a super friendly boy and very loving.

“We really hope he is chosen soon as he has been with us for several months and is now ready to find his loving home.”

Hammer needs a home where he is the only pet ideally and it would be good if he had access to a secure garden to keep him safe from harm.

If you could give Hammer the home he needs then please call the RSPCA East Norfolk on 07867972870.

There are other animals at the charity also looking for new homes.

Tam and Cathy are brother and sister and staff say they would dearly love to go to a home together.

Cathy is a shy little cat and Tam is her protector and looks after her.

They are both around five years old and came to the RSPCA after their owner could not care for them any longer.

They have been much loved cats and they can’t wait for a loving home to be found for them.

Ellie and Tilly are another lovely pair of cats, Ellie is the more confident of the two.

She is 18 years old and will be having a dental operation to sort out her teeth then she can go off to her forever home.

They have lived together with other cats and Tilly, who is around nine, is very nervous but is settling down well.

Staff say it would be wonderful to find them a home together and Ellie is an older cat so they would like to find her a home soon so she is not at the cattery for too long.

Pumba has been a very stressed cat and consequently is quite fearful. He is doing so much better and is interested in toys but he will need a patient adult only home where he can become confident and settle down.

All rabbits need plenty of space with an attached permanent run of at least 8ft, with a hutch of around 6ft wide. If you need more information on sizes and suitable accommodation please contact the RSPCA. Sheds with attached runs make excellent housing.

All of the RSPCA East Norfolk’s cats, dogs and rabbits are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and on a flea and worm programme.

You are offered four weeks free insurance if you register on adoption. There is a small adoption fee of £65 for domestic cats and kittens, £25 for rabbits and dogs are on application.

Please visit the website to see how the branch is rehoming during the COVID-19 situation, as services are still restricted.
