Cat found in newspaper printworks sparks regional daily appeal

A regional daily has launched an appeal to reunite a cat found in its printworks with its owners.

The black cat, nicknamed Inky by Dorset Echo staff, was found at its Weymouth print centre’s plant room by maintenance manager Kevin Frampton.

Echo receptionist Caroline Brock is currently looking after Inky, after no microchip was found following a trip to the vets.

However, Caroline is keen to reunite the cat, pictured below, with its rightful owners.

She said: “We hope somebody will come forward because it would be nice for him to go back to his home.

“It would be much nicer if whoever owned him claimed him.”

Inky appeared to have suffered a leg injury as he was hobbling when he was found and also has a patch of fur missing from above his left eye.

However, he appears to be comfortable with humans after receiving attention from the cat lovers among the Weymouth-based Echo’s staff.

Deputy¬†editor Samantha Harman said that she hoped that Inky’s owners would come forward or, failing that, if someone was able to offer him a forever home.

She added: “He’s a lovely cat and it would be great if we could reunite Inky with his rightful owners or find a loving home for him.”

    The first sentence of the article is appalling.
    I am still looking for the cat. That has to be the worst photograph of the year!
    How about the following sentence?

    A regional newspaper recently found a stray cat in its printworks. The staff are hoping to find the owners.
