THIS little fellow has found himself in the middle of a media frenzy but he appears to be taking it all in his stride.

For unlike most cats who live in owners' houses or wild on the street, George has set up home in the Kingswood branch of Wilko.

He is a familiar sight with many customers visiting the store in Kings Chase Shopping Centre just to catch a glimpse of their feline friend.

George obviously feels entirely comfortable, as more often than not, he's catching 40 winks on the store's display of mats and cushions.

The terrific tabby is proving such a hit, he's even got his own Facebook page where fans share photos of George relaxing and strolling along the aisles.

Staff say they love having him in the store and make sure he is fed and watered.

They have put up a sign which says: "Whilst George is a very tolerant friendly cat, please bear in mind he is constantly being petted and fusses, and as with all animals he may be unpredictable when woken or provoked."

Emily Attwood, who took to George's Facebook page to claim she is his owner, said: "He's nearly seven and loves to roam about and meet people."
