BRITAIN’s loneliest cat spent his birthday waiting for someone to give him a home.
Twizzle currently lives at Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, and has been there for 125 days.

Usually cats stay at the South London charity for an average of 23 days before they are rehomed.
But poor Twizzle, 8, has been waiting for months for a new owner to take care of him.
Battersea’s Cattery Team Leader, Rosa Steele said: “Twizzle is such a lovely cat and it’s a huge shame that he has been waiting for so long to find a home.
“He is an intelligent, playful cat and has a lot to offer as a pet.
“What better birthday gift could you give one of our cats than a loving new home?”
The cattery team thinks Twizzle may have been overlooked as he has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).
It is a contagious virus that is usually transmitted by deep bite wounds.
Some cats can become quite unwell due to the infection, although most live long lives with no issues, but this might be putting off some potential new owners.

Cats with FIV have to be kept in enclosed gardens or indoors to prevent the spread.
