Apart from being skinny and having 'a grotty coat', the cat is said to be settling in nicely.

A post from Leeds Cat Rescue said: "We were contacted yesterday by a local vets after a cat carrier containing 2 cats had been tied to their door for staff to find on arrival.

"Unfortunately the carrier had not been secured properly so one of the cats had escaped.

"Unfortunately we have no idea what the second cat looks like so are unlikely to ever find her!!
