ELDERLY feline friends are hoping to find a loving home together.
Staff at Birmingham Cats Protection say Captain and Pugwash are two of the closest friends they have ever seen – and hope they can be rehomed together.
Captain is a 15-year-old cat who survives on three legs after having one amputated when he was younger. He now has arthritis in his remaining front leg and requires daily medication.
Despite his health problems, the cat is never happier than when he is with his shipmate, Pugwash.
Pugwash is around ten-years-old and staff say he has taken it upon himself to look after Captain.
Adoption centre deputy manager Paula Beswick said: “In all the years I have been working at the centre have never seen two cats so close.
“They wash each other, eat together, sleep curled up together and wherever Captain is then Pugwash is by his side.
“Both are extremely affectionate and just want a warm, loving home for their remaining years.
“With Captain’s medication and the many other cats at the centre for people to choose, they have been over looked.
“Captain certainly needs a home with his best buddy and we are hoping to find these lost souls a new home.”
