Help

A 14-year-old cat called Morph has taken up hydro-therapy in order to help with his arthritis

Arthritis is a condition that causes muscles and joints to become stiff and painful when moving.

Morph takes part in the swimming therapy once a week to help ease the pain in his bones.

Jo Scott, from South Coast Hydrotherapy School said it usually reserves the treatment for dogs.

But after an unsure start, staff said Morph is now doing circuits with a "doggy paddle stroke".
