Maximus appeal: 'Lucky cat' recovers after Great Barr rescue

Until just a few days ago Maximus the cat was in a sorry state having lived on the streets of the West Midlands for 10 years.

But ever since the story of his rescue hit social media, thousands of pounds has been donated for his care.

Maximus was picked up in Great Barr, Sandwell, by the Stray Cats Rescue Team West Midlands, suffering severe dehydration.

His claws were also so long he couldn't walk and he has FIV - an immunodeficiency virus similar to HIV.
