Two cats survived 'month without food' says RSPCA

Two cats left alone in a house for more than a month without food survived because they had been overfed by their owner, the RSPCA has said.

Police found the cats after neighbours complained of a smell coming from a property in Walsall, West Midlands. They each weighed just over nine kilos.

Their owner is believed to have died in hospital.

The RSPCA is looking after the cats, which are in good health and have now been renamed Roly Poly and Pudding.

It is thought the cats are aged 18 months and three years old.

The RSPCA said a health conscious owner was being sought for both cats to get them on a diet.
