He is old and beautiful - with a definite orange colour.

Ozzie the Australian ginger Tomcat is much older than his rescuers originally thought.

He has now been revealed to be a grand old 26 years of age.

That's an impressive 121 human years for a cat, which somehow travelled from Australia to London before ending up in Co Armagh. where he was rescued last week.

Despite a plea from Armagh Cats Protection, no one has come forward to claim Ozzie or to give any information about him.

"I'm absolutely shocked at how old Ozzie is, I had to look twice at the information from the Australian Animal Registry and I got them to check twice," said volunteer co-ordinator Gillian McMullen.

"If only he could tell us about his life and how he got here.

"Unfortunately, Ozzie is still not showing any signs of improvement and we will take him home now for some palliative care. There's no more we can do for him."
