The RSPCA is appealing for cat lovers in East Lancashire to come forward and adopt a cat who has been waiting patiently for a new owner since the start of 2022.

Lenny, an eight-year-old black and white moggy, has been delighting RSPCA staff and volunteers with his affectionate character and chatty ways since arriving as a stray.

Sadly, the animal charity didn’t receive calls from any potential owners, so Lenny was transferred from an animal centre run by the RSPCA Southport, Ormskirk and District Branch into a fostering scheme recently launched by RSPCA Lancashire East Branch.

Lenny is now the second cat to be placed with a fosterer by the animal centre at Altham near Accrington and Fostering Co-ordinator Sue Abraham says the branch is desperate to get Lenny fixed up with a permanent home so he can move on from the harrowing circumstances in which he was found in early January.

The friendly feline was covered in scars and wounds and needed treatment at the Greater Manchester Animal Hospital before he was taken into the care of the Southport, Ormskirk and District Branch’s animal centre in Birkdale.

Sue Abraham said: “He’d had a difficult time, but it doesn’t seem to have affected him as he’s such a friendly chap.

"He’s a very chatty boy who loves being fussed and making his presence felt.

“He’s with a foster carer where he gets a lot of attention. He has a routine where he loves to come down and have a chat at breakfast time.

"He has a favourite chair and will happily sit on his fosterer’s knee.”

During his stay, Lenny has sadly received no interest despite the branch advertising on their website and Facebook page.

Ms Abraham continued: “I think he may have been overlooked because he’s a black and white cat of a certain age.

"We brought him over to Accrington as we knew we had a fosterer who was interested in taking on cats.

“He is enjoying his time with his foster carers, but he needs a permanent home to settle into.”

Lenny could live with a female cat and would suit a single person’s home or couple’s home with no dogs or children under the age of ten.
