A huge stray cat called Buster has been happily rehomed with retired folk in a Croydon care home by the RSPCA.
Buster is a friendly three-year-old, neutered male black and white cat with bright green eyes.
RSPCA South East branch spokesperson, David Mawson, said :
“He is the biggest tom cat we have ever seen and he is delightful.
“He came to us as a stray from the Lewisham area and we know nothing about his past other than that he does not like other cats.
“He is very vocal and loves lots of fuss and cuddles.
“We suggested him to the care home because he is big and would be easily seen around the home.”
Sally Stear, manager of the Bupa Care home in Stanhope Road said:
“The residents have made a real fuss of Buster.
“He was a bit wedded to the residents lounge at first but is now starting to move freely around the home much to the delight of the less mobile residents.
“Having a cat in the home has lots of benefits – he comforts residents who may have grown up with animals around them and brings a smile to others with his antics.
“So it’s the perfect place for a sociable cat.”
