The Scottish SPCA is seeking the owner of a distinct elderly cat found struggling to walk in the Torry area of Aberdeen.
Scotland’s animal welfare charity was called to rescue the 16-year-old cat after a resident of Whitehouse Street spotted her staggering and falling by the roadside on Friday evening (January 25). Animal rescue officer Amanda Clark took the cat to a vet where she was found to be weak and dehydrated. The vet also discovered that she only has half a tongue, possibly from an old injury. Nicknamed Brownie, she is now receiving care and attention at the Scottish SPCA’s Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre at Drumoak.
Amanda said: “Poor Brownie wasn’t in the best of shape when she was found. She was weak due to a lack of food and water so we think she may have been struggling outdoors on her own for a few days before being found. Although she was wearing a collar there was no identity tag and she isn’t micro-chipped so we’re appealing to anyone who recognises her to come forward.
“We’d be delighted to reunite Brownie with her owner, but if no-one claims her then we will find her a loving new home.” Anyone who recognises Brownie is being asked to call the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
