A local animal welfare group is looking for new owners for a one-year-old cat who suffers from diabetes.

Bramble is currently being looked after by Life for Cats at the charity's north London shelter.

He needs daily injections of insulin and special food which costs £2 a day.

Bramble started off as a stray before being re-homed.

He was taken into care when his new owners were unable to cope with his diabetes.

Life for Cats director Peri Sinclair said: "Bramble is desperate for a new home.

"He has been through so much in just the first year of his life and needs someone who can offer the special care he needs."

Call Life for Cats on 0181 447 3777 for more details.
