A hospitalised cat has ended up with the nickname ‘Grumpy Cat 2.0’ after facial injuries left it with a look of displeasure.

RSPCA London veterinary director Caroline Allen said: “Saul was brought in by one of our animal collection officers after a gentleman found him wandering along the High Street in Peckham in the rain.
“We believe he was involved in a road traffic accident as we found he had injured his jaw, teeth and one eye – all leading to his rather unique look.

“Despite his constant scowl, Saul’s actually really sweet and friendly.”

“We’re sure he’d give Grumpy Cat a run for his money – that’s why we’re affectionately nicknaming him Grumpy Cat 2.0!”

Saul wasn’t microchipped and staff members believe he has been living as a stray. Caroline said Saul was recovering well from his injuries and would soon move to the RSPCA cattery in Southall.
