Staff at an animal rescue centre have issued an appeal to find an affectionate cat a new home.

Lumpy Larry, as he's affectionately been named, is overweight and in desperate need of medical treatment.

He's being looked after at Gables Dogs & Cats Home in Plymouth, having arrived there with tightly matted fur all over his body and a large tumour on his face, which has been left untreated.

Staff describe him as a friendly, affectionate cat, who just needs a new loving owner.

Deputy Manager, Ruth Rickard said: “It is always so distressing to see an animal suffer fromsomething that is so easily preventable and treatable. As soon as I heard about poor Lumpy Larry I just knew we could help him and he is such a sweet, friendly boy.

"Our vet even had trouble listening to his heart properly as he was purring so loudly on examination. He is going to be a very loving addition to a home once he has had all the treatment he needs.”
