The owner of an injured tomcat is appealing for help to get him home.

O'Malley, a ginger male, is in the care of the SSPCA in Dunbartonshire after being found injured in Alexandria.

The Scottish SPCA posted on their Facebook: "This entire male was found with an injury in the Alexandria area on 21 September.

"He is in good condition and is friendly so we think he has an owner."

Fiona Dickinson got in touch when she saw O'Malley's picture.

She called the SSPCA to confirm his identity.

But she now faces stumping up cash for a vet's bill before she can get her beloved feline friend back.

Fiona told the Reporter: "We can't wait to get him back. We've got another cat and the two were brought up together so she's really missing him as well.

"He had a sore leg and also has a fractured pelvis, he is responding well to cage rest and painkillers. They think he may have been hit by a car."

Fiona and her husband have set up a go fund me page to help with getting O'Malley back and to cover veterinary costs.

The fundraising webpage reads: "So far his boarding fees alone have been £120 not including his medical treatment.

"He also requires surgery for a broken hip which has been done but they won't release him to us until at least 50 per cent is paid.

"I'm really grateful for any help we can get to bring him home."
