A famous cats' home is looking for someone to take care of its oldest resident.
Elderly Ella, 20, is back at Battersea Dogs and Cats home at Priest Hill, Old Windsor - five years after being rehoused during her last stay when she was 15.
Sadly her latest owner is ill and now Ella needs a new home again.
The average life expectancy of a cat is 12 to 15 and this grey tabby is well past that.
Tamara Willis, Battersea Old Windsor’s senior cat rehomer said: “After a few checks we discovered that Ella is actually the oldest cat we’ve ever had at Old Windsor, making her a real record breaker.
"We’re all doubly determined to find the perfect home, especially as she’s so spritely for her age."
