A cat, who is recovering from severe mechanical burns after becoming trapped in a car engine, is in need of a new home.
The one-year-old feline, which has been named Vixen by staff at RSPCA Gonsal Farm, became trapped in the engine, on Ralph Drive, Sneyd Green, Staffordshire, on November 27.
A member of the public spotted the animal and called the RSPCA and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service - who managed to free the animal from the hot engine.
Vixen was taken to a local vet before being transferred to Gonsall Farm, at Dorrington near Shrewsbury.
The cat was not microchipped and, despite efforts to locate any owners, no one has so far come forward.
Vixen is now recovering and is a lot happier, with staff hoping she can be re-homed soon after spending Christmas at the centre.
