Animal rescue groups have raised concerns for the cat’s health in the winter months, after reports that Barry looked very thin when spotted.

Penny Parker, of Lost and Found Cats in Portsmouth, said: ‘Due to his disability we are sending members of our group out walking around the lake and leaving a little food.

‘We apologise for any inconvenience but we are being as quiet and discreet as possible not to interrupt the working day.’

People have been urged to contact Penny on (023) 9232 4086 if they see Barry at Lakeside North Harbour or the surrounding areas.
