A FUND-RAISING campaign has been launched for a stray cat who has been on the streets of Rubery for more than six years.
The Standard was contacted by Paula Baylis who has been feeding Bobby on and off for five of those years.
She said: “He’s getting on in age and I think he’s had enough of being alone on the streets as the past few weeks he’s been coming inside my home.
“I have been chosen by Bobby.
“He is so desperate for company and love – you can see it in his face.
“He is also desperate for medical attention – he has fleas, tics and most likely FIV cat flu.
“He has sores on his legs and his tail looks like it’s been ran over.
“And he’s also un-neutered and is rather deaf.”
Melissa has four cats already and cannot stretch her funds any further.
She is hoping cat-lovers will contribute towards his vets bills to ‘give this old boy a chance’.
She added: “Poor Bobby deserves it after all he’s been through.”
