An RSPCA cattery in Cheshire is appealing to find the owner of a distinctive-looking cat who was saved from getting hit by cars on a busy road.Pumpkincollage.jpg

The cat – who is part black-and-white and part-tortoiseshell – was picked up by a member of the public at the side of Welsh Row, in Nantwich, on the afternoon of Sunday, 29 October.

She was looking confused and lost, so the lady who found her took her to the RSPCA’s Stapeley Grange Cattery, in London Road, Nantwich, where staff have nicknamed her Pumpkin.

Sadly Pumpkin isn’t microchipped, so her owner can’t be traced.

Lee Stewart, manager at the cattery, said: “Pumpkin is a very friendly cat who loves a good fuss so we don’t believe that she is a stray. It’s such a shame that she has not been microchipped.  If she was she could be back with her owners already.

“She is a very distinctive-looking cat – the front part of her body and part of her face is black and white and the rest of her body is tortoiseshell. We can’t imagine there are many cats in Nantwich who look like Pumpkin – she’s gorgeous.

“We’d love to get her back home. If you know where she has come from then please get in touch with us by calling 0300 123 0722 or emailing You can also pop into the cattery, in London Road, Nantwich, anytime between 11.30am to 3.30pm every day except Monday.
