A THREE-LEGGED cat is on the lookout for a new home, and staff at an Ashbourne rescue centre hope a News Telegraph reader might be interested in rehoming him.
Five-month-old Hamish was run over by a car but was seen by a passing animal lover who took him straight to a vet.
The vet immediately contacted the Derby Branch of Cats Protection, in Long Lane and it was discovered that he had broken his pelvis and required surgery.
Unfortunately, the vet was unable to save his leg and his owner was never traced.
Staff at the centre say his disability should not hinder him from leading a normal life and that he is young enough to adapt to a house with another cat.
