The Scottish SPCA is looking to rehome Sooty, a small black cat.
A spokeswoman for the charity said: “Sooty is a sensitive wee cat who found herself in the care of the Scottish SPCA recently through rather unfortunate circumstances and is now looking for her forever home.
“She is a beautiful girl with a nervous nature who will require a very specific home.
“Sooty will need an owner who has had cat experience, has a quiet household without children or other pets and has a lot of time and patience to devote to helping build her confidence and allowing her to come out of her shell at her own pace.
“Unfortunately, we don’t have much information on Sooty’s background but we imagine that she will need to be an indoor cat due to her nervy nature.
“If you can give Sooty a home then please contact the Scottish SPCA centre in Angus, Fife & Tayside on 03000 999 999.”
