One lucky black cat almost lost one of its nine lives when it was found roaming around in the car park outside Burger King in South Queensferry.
A concerned resident raised the alarm over fears the cat – who has been named Jessie – might be struck by a car.
Jessie is now in the safe hands of the Scottish SPCA’s animal rescue and rehoming centre in Edinburgh after coming into their care on Monday.
SSPCA are now looking to reunite her with her owner or if no one comes forward find Jessie a new home.
Assistant centre manager Kenny Sharpe said: “We believe she’s an indoor cat who’s gotten lost as she is very friendly, albeit a bit nervous in her new surroundings.
“She’s in good condition – we think she’s been snacking away on discarded meals – however does have some alopecia on both ears.
“We’re hoping to reunite her with her rightful owner. However, if no one comes forward for Jessie we’ll start looking to find her a suitable new home.”
Anyone who recognises Jessie is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA’s animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
