TWO male cats who have not had a lot of luck in life are hoping for new owners to give them the happiness they deserve.

Banana and Kennedy are currently in the care of RSPCA Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch.

Kennedy is a 14-year-old short-haired white and black boy, while Banana is described as a handsome eight-year-old little black and white short haired cat.

Geraldine Haynes, branch trustee, said: "Kennedy was brought into the centre by his first owners because they were moving away and were unable to take him with them.

"He was feeling rather lonely in the cattery until a lovely couple came along and offered him a loving home and family.

"Unfortunately, he didn't settle in very well and began to bop them when he was given fuss and cuddles, so he had to come back to the centre.

"Even though Kennedy is a mature lad, he does not act his age and you can teach an old cat new tricks.

"Banana, meanwhile, came into our care from the mean streets where he was born and spent most of his life.

" Because of his background, he is very scared around people and tends to hide away to make himself feel safe.

"He hasn't had an easy life, but since arriving at the centre everyone looking after him is trying to help him to be more confident and realise that people aren't really scary."

Kennedy and Banana are hoping people with patience and understanding will offer them forever homes. All the branch's cats are vet checked, spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and rehomed with four weeks' free pet insurance.
