Volunteers from our Rayleigh, Castle Point & District Branch were alerted to the six-month-old cat last December, who was found soaking wet and covered in mud at an abandoned house.

Norman Mills, from Cats Protection’s Rayleigh, Castle Point & District Branch, said: “Peter Steve Rabbit was severely malnourished, weighing just 1.5kg when he first came into our care. When we finally managed to dry him off, we were surprised to see a slightly fluffy-looking cat, who just needed some TLC.

Peter is now settled in his new home with Liz and is already best friends with her other two cats, Beatrix Mary Potter, who was adopted from Cats Protection last year and Miss Ivy Moppet, who was adopted from the charity just last week.
|Peter loves a warm place for a snooze|
“He’s now put on some weight and absolutely loves his food. Because of his experiences as a stray cat, we think he appreciates all the little things such as a warm and safe place to sleep.”
