Vets in Dundee are searching for the owner of a cat found with chemical burns after being doused in diesel.

The young black male cat was brought in to the city's Parkside Veterinary Surgery by the SSPCA on Thursday soaked in the fuel.

He was bathed repeatedly to wash it off, but suffered chemical burns.

Vets think the cat may belong to someone living in the Loons Road area of the city, and may have been missing for some time.
