International ‘Kiss a Ginger Day’ (Saturday 12 January) encourages people to find their favourite redhead and give them a cheeky peck on the cheek

Cats Protection is taking the opportunity to highlight Sebastion, a gorgeous ginger-and-white cat who is waiting patiently for a home at the charity’s Framlingham & 

Ginger and white cat

Saxmundham Branch. While Cats Protection does not advocate giving cats a big kiss, Sebastion is looking for plenty of love and attention.

Five-year-old Sebastion has had a rough start to life after being found as a stray in a very bad condition. After much love and care, he is now ready to find a new and loving home.

Due to his previous lifestyle, it is thought that a rural, adult-only home where he can be the only pet would be ideal.

Daniel Cummings, Behaviour Officer for Cats Protection said: “It’s better to wait for your cat to approach you rather than restraining your cat to lavish them with hugs and kisses as many cats will find this uncomfortable and unpleasant – there are many other ways to show love to your cat such as stroking, playing and slow blinking at them.

To give Sebastion a home, contact Cats Protection’s Framlingham & Saxmundham Branch on 01728 723 499 or by emailing
