A cat has lost his eye after being shot in the face. Alfie, a 10-year-old black moggy, returned to his home in Chingford in east London with blood on his face last week.

Alfie's owners originally thought he had been in a fight, and he was taken to the vets to be looked at. The only option was to remove the cat’s eye and following the operation an air gun pellet was found lodged behind it.

Anyone with any information can call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018. Alfie looks to have made a full recovery and is coping well living without his eye.
