HOTEL staff were shocked to find an abandoned cat in a room after a family checked out.

The pet was found at Strensham Services after a family, claiming they were moving from Cornwall to Scotland, called the hotel to ask if their pet would be allowed in the room.

The long-haired tabby was discovered the day after they left.

Mark Lewis, an RSPCA inspector, collected the frightened feline and took him to a vet to be checked over before he was temporarily homed by the charity's Worcester and Mid Worcestershire branch whose staff have named him Lucien.

"It is a really strange set of circumstances that has led this cat to be in our care," Mr Lewis said. "The hotel tried to get in touch with the women via their contact details but it would appear they were false.

"Lucien is quite a distinctive cat due to his lovely markings. I am hoping that anyone who recognises him or the description of his owners will contact me.

"Abandoning any animal is wrong pure and simple and we would urge people to please seek help if they are struggling to cope with a pet."

Anyone interested in rehoming Lucien or any of the branch's other animals should call 01905 841354.
