A spokesman for the Worthing Cat Welfare Trust said: "Who could resist those beautiful green eyes?

"Despite a tough start to life, living on the streets for several years, Pepper is an easy-going friendly boy with humans.

"Aged six, it's very obvious that he's keen to find a forever home outside his cattery pen.

"He isn't keen on other pets but is great with people and could live with children aged ten plus."

Pepper has been fully vaccinated, chipped and neutered.

People looking to adopt Pepper should expect a home visit and will be asked to make a donation to the charity.
