A beautiful cat called Snowy is seeking a caring home after undergoing what vets refer to as a "sex change" operation.

Snowy came into the care of the city's RSPCA branch needing medical attention because he could not pass urine.

"He was catheterised a few times but kept blocking again," said a spokesman for the RSPCA North Bucks and Milton Keynes branch.

She added: "Fortunately for Snowy, the lovely Hannah at Heath and Reach vets offered to perform a perineal urethrostomy at a price we could afford, so we went for it and it appears to have been a success.

"It's often referred to as a 'sex change' as he's had his urethra shortened and a new opening made similar to that of a female cat."

The spokesman said Snowy is now weeing really well and is very happy in himself.

He was recently found a new home but sadly had to be returned to the RSPCA because he did not get on with the existing cat.

"We're therefore looking to find him a home where he'll be the only pet...He is a such a friendly boy who needs a quiet, stress free home," said the spokesman.

"As he's not a great traveller we would prefer to rehome him within a 20 mile radius of Milton Keynes."
