London animal of the week: The badass cat in Brockley Sainsbury's

Written by

It's been a week packed with animal news. There was the albino squirrel hanging out in Croydon's Grangewood Park, the six-foot boa constrictor slithering through Danson Park and the micro pig hanging out on a busy A-road in Hammersmith. None of those critters came close to the cat who refuses to leave Brockley Sainsbury's though. The ginger kitty has been dubbed the store's 'resident cat' and has been snapped by shoppers prowling around the store and sitting on a sweet shelf. 

Local resident Adam Oliver has come forward to say the cat is called Olly and belongs to him. He wrote on Twitter: 'I've told the Sainsbury's staff to throw him out if too pesky. Olly is always at Sainsbury – I don't think he can fit any other shops in his schedule.'
