A disabled cat is hoping it will be third time lucky in finding her a forever home.

Jemima Puddleduck named after her cute duck-like meow sound, was born with a limb deformity in her right front leg which she is able to walk on without being in pain and can get around fine.

The 10-year-old waddled her way to The Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Green , Brent , for the second time after her previous owner of two years unexpectedly fell ill.

As an ex-Mayhew animal with an adopter that is no longer able to care for her she was brought back into their care.

Now the animal centre is keen to rehome the little feline by finding her a happily ever.

The Mayhew’s cat adoption officer, Matthew Pearson, said: “Jemima Puddleduck is such a special girl who will make a fantastic companion for that lucky person or family.

“She’s charismatic, friendly and absolutely loves company, and we would love to find her a loving forever home soon.

“Despite her leg deformity, Jemima can walk about and can even get up and down steps.

“As she gets older she may get a bit of arthritis in her other legs, but she’s gets around just fine.”

Due to the nature of her problems she needs a loving home where she will be the only pet with somewhere there are plenty of spots to rest her paws as she can get a bit tired from walking.

She is happy around children who are used to cats and an outdoor space like a balcony would be ideal as she enjoys sprawling out to relax in the sun.

Jemima first came to The Mayhew two years ago after animal welfare officers found her living as a stray in someone's back garden.

She was brought in where the vet team checked her health and assessed her before the cattery staff settled her into a cosy cat cabin.

In June, the animal home was appealing to find new homes for two blind dogs.
