Cute cat is struggling to find a new home - because he can't stop sneezing

This cute cat is struggling to find a new home - because he can’t stop sneezing.

Little Elliot arrived at a Cats Protection rescue centre two months ago, but is struggling to attract a new family.

The nine-year-old tabby suffers from chronic rhinitis gives him a runny nose and constant sneezes - something rescue workers think might be putting off potential new owners.

But the charity workers at the national adoption centre in Chelwood Gate, East Sussex, said Little Elliot is a happy cat who still deserves a loving home as much as the next animal.

Centre deputy manager Tania Marsh said: “Elliott is definitely very snuffly and his condition means he has some damage to the bones in his nose. However, this doesn’t bother him and he is a happy, affectionate chap.

“We think his condition has put off some people from adopting him, which is a shame as he would make a lovely pet.

“We’re looking for a patient owner who can give Elliott the loving home he desperately needs.

“Cats with health conditions may seem like a daunting prospect at first, but in many cases they can be managed well with the right care.

“Cats like Elliott deserve a safe, warm home as much as any other cat, and we hope we can find a new owner for him soon.”
