A DEAF cat is just one of the residents at RSPCA Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch hoping to find a home to call his own.

The branch is full to bursting point with cats of all ages and several are at vets waiting to move across when the charity has space.

Henry is described as a lovely white, short haired boy who is only 12 months old and needs a special home due to his hearing loss.

Geraldine Haynes, branch trustee, said: "Henry is really affectionate, curious and very chatty!

"He will need to be an indoor cat primarily, with access to a secure garden where he can be accompanied.

"He loves company, so ideally someone who is around a good part of the day. Henry loves his home comforts and would be happy living with children."

Henry is in excellent condition, neutered, vaccinated, chipped and will be rehomed with free pet insurance.

For more information about Henry or any of the branch's other cats seeking adoption, call The Holdings Rescue & Rehoming Centre on 07484 905707 or 01905 841354.

Alternatively you can meet the cats any day, except Wednesdays, between 11am and 4pm at Holdings Lane, Broomhall, Kempsey, Worcester WR5 3FP.

There are also rescued rabbits on site available for adoption. They are all vet checked, neutered or spayed and vaccinated.

Dogs continue to be boarded at private kennels until funds have been raised to build the new kennel block.

Details of the branch's rescued animals are on the website rspca-worcester.org.

The branch is also appealing for people who shop in Tesco or Tesco Express to take advantage of the Bags of Help community grant scheme.

Each time you shop you will be offered a blue token at the checkout that allows you to vote for your favourite project, with the RSPCA hoping to develop its pond area and wildlife garden

Mrs Haynes said: " We are a separate charity in our own right, a self financing branch and need to raise funds for ongoing vets bills and the day-to-day running of the rescue centre, as well as continuing to expand the facilities at The Holdings.

"Should we win the scheme, the funding would go towards the development of the centre's pond area and wildlife garden. Once completed, the garden would be open for the public to enjoy the wonderful pastoral element of the centre.

"Since opening in October 2016, 465 cats and kittens have been rehomed. Sadly, as soon as one goes to a new home, there is another one waiting to come in.

"We have a non-destruction policy, so every animal rescued gets all the treatment and care any animal could possibly have, until they are fit and healthy and a new home is found."

The branch received lots of calls for last month's featured puppy Jack. He has gone to a new home where he is happy and settling well.
