A LOST black and white cat is looking to find his family and is in need of a ‘forever home.’ Nicknamed Ozzy, he is black and white, with massive paws and about three years old.

He arrived as a stray in Friar Wadden, near Portesham, in the summer and no-one was sure where he came from.

Sally Vennard took pity on him and started to feed him as he looked thin.

She has been trying to find his original owners to return him to them and is hoping they will see the appeal in the Echo, or that a family might offer Ozzy a home.

Ozzy is very affectionate and loving to people but doesn’t get on with other cats and has been fighting with Mrs Vennard’s cat Boolo.

Ozzy has currently made his home in a box in Mrs Vennard’s shed, but she said she wants to find him a loving, happy home.

She added that Ozzy is very inquisitive and wanted to be the boss. She said: “He’s a character – he’s very loving.”

She added: “I think if someone takes him on, we’d miss him because he’s so adorable.”

Ozzy has now been neutered and micro-chipped, thanks to the Feral Cat Care and Sanctuary in Portesham. He is also up to date with all his injections.

Mrs Vennard added: “Hopefully the owners will come forward but if they don’t we want a forever home for him.”

To offer Ozzy a home call Mrs Vennard on 01305 814247.

n Mrs Vennard would like to thank the Feral Cat Care and Sanctuary for all their support and help. Donations to them can be made by calling 01305 871656.
