A hearing loss charity are on the hunt for the purrfect home for a deaf cat.

Action on Hearing Loss have joined forces with Caterham, Redhill and East Surrey Cats Protection to find a loving home for Sandy.

The charity say the 16-year-old, who due to her deafness can be quite loud without meaning to be, would strongly suit someone who is deaf and can offer a home where there are no other pets or small children- and no immediate neighbours.

Jacky Eyres, branch co-ordinator said: "Sandy is a sweet girl who came to us as a stray, desperate for love and a home. She would make a fantastic house cat as she snoozes most of the day away but would like her owner to be around a lot of the time. It would be the cat’s whiskers to see her find a home to call her own."
