A cat suffering from huge fur loss has been rescued in Honiton.

The distressed feline was discovered in King Street on Sunday (March 24) by a member of the public who contacted the RSPCA.

The charity’s animal collection officer Clara Scully said: “This poor old cat was in a horrendous condition with huge fur loss all over the underside of her body.

“She is a very friendly cat and is happy in herself but has obviously had a skin condition for some time to be in this state.”

The cat - who has been named Isla by her rescuers - is thought to be around eight years old. She wasn’t microchipped so at the moment it has not been possible to trace an owner.

If you have any information please call the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and ask to leave a message for RSPCA animal collection officer Clara Scully.
