IN the dark of night Ralph the cat was desperate for a new home and took it upon himself to find one.
He crept in through the cat door of a stranger’s house and cuddled up asleep next to a lady in bed.
Orange RSPCA customer service officer Sam Anderson said the lady had the shock of her life to wake up next to a cat she didn’t know.
Miss Anderson said Ralph was not microchipped and unfortunately nobody came to collect him so he is now looking for a new home.
He is aged around three years old and is a domestic short hair ginger cat.
“He’s a very friendly cat but probably not suited to young children,” Miss Anderson said.
If you would like to adopt Ralph he will need to be kept indoors for the first three months as he gets used to his new surroundings.
Since his arrival at the shelter he has been microchipped, de-sexed vaccinated, wormed, flea-treated and vet checked.
Ralph costs $170 to adopt and will need to be registered with council for a lifetime fee of $40.
