A stray ginger cat is looking for his forever home.

Marmalade, one, was rescued after being found living on the streets.

Despite numerous appeals to find his owner, no one came forward to claim him.

He is currently being cared for by the Worthing Cat Welfare Trust, a charity founded in 1995 by Iris Green and Sandra Collins.

A spokesman for the trust said: "He doesn’t seem to have had a lot of human interaction and although he can be affectionate, he can also be cheeky sometimes.

"Marmalade will need someone with time and patience to let him settle in on his own terms."

He will need to be the only pet in the home and can live in households with children over the age of eight.

Marmalade is one of a number of cats currently in the charity's care.

Others looking for homes include two four-month-old kittens who were born on a farm.
