A CAT was abandoned outside an animal shelter on Saturday - but then escaped from a bag.

And when staff arrived at Wood Green Animal Shelter in Heydon at 8am on Sunday, they found a holdall slightly unzipped with a £10 note inside.

They also found a note from someone who said they were old and frail and could no longer look after the cat.

But unfortunately the cat had gone missing.

Shelter manager Gay Baxter said: "We are appealing to anyone who may have seen the cat or knows the colour or gender of the animal."
