Vince – who has been described as a loving cat and always wanting cuddles – will soon be packing his bags and heading to Waterlooville to live with his new owners.

Kate Stapleford from Cats Protection Gosport said: ‘Vince is struggling in the rescue environment and we'd had no adoption enquiries for him, until The News featured his plight.

‘We received the first call for him at 7.30am on Friday – several more enquiries followed and taking care to match up Vince and the potential adopter ,a pre-adoption visit was made on Sunday.

‘Vince is now reserved and will be joining his new home with Margaret and Gordon in Waterlooville on Thursday.’
