He was discovered by a member of the public at around 8.30am on Salisbury Road.

The feline is now in the care of Cats Protection.

The charity said: "This cat is utterly terrified and has a major issue with one of his eye sockets which appears to not have an eyeball anymore.

"If this is your cat please come forward and speak to us.

"We totally understand things can become difficult with male cats that aren’t neutered but we just want to speak to his owner/s about his history and how we can help him."

It continued: "Please always ring any animal charities or vets before doing this to a poor animal.

"Somebody somewhere may be able to help you as it was so lucky this boy was discovered.

"He is now flea and worm treated with a good meal and a hear pad, safe and warm."

The charity said it was not taking requests for adoption at this stage adding it was not sharing the images to shock or sadden but raise awareness about help which is available.
