An appeal has been launched to find a Hull animal charity's longest serving resident a new home in time for Christmas.
Mischief, who is thought to be between six and eight years old, has been with Hull Animal Welfare Trust for several months but has struggled to find the right person to give her a loving home.
She is being cared for by Jane Read Lewis who has taken on the mission to find Mischief a new home in line with celebrating her first year volunteering with the South Cave-based charity.
The "very sassy" feline has even been living in the charity's staff kitchen as she has found it stressful living in the cattery.

Mischief's name is also no coincidence.
She is described as having just that "in droves" and may have found it hard to get a forever home as she is not considered a traditional "lap cat" and has been known to give out the occasional swipe.
However, Jane guarantees she is "lot of fun" and great company.
"She is our longest feline resident. To commemorate my first full year volunteering, I’m going to try and find her a home for Christmas," she said.
"If you are looking for a cat with personality, Mischief by name, has it in droves. She is very sassy and will swipe for you if you stroke whilst not on her terms.
"She is not a lap cat but if you are looking for company and lots of fun and the odd loving head butt - when she knows you well, she loves strokes, head and buttocks scratches - then she is the cat for you.
"I love her so very much but my rescue hates other fur babies so I cannot help."
She is being cared for at the Hull Animal Welfare Trust's South Cave centre but her incompatibility with living alongside children and other pets has made it difficult fro her to be rehomed.
