Female cat had been trapped in Llandudno property for at least 15 days
Wednesday 20 November 2013
The RSPCA is searching for the owner of a cat found trapped inside an empty building in Llandudno.
The female tabby cat was spotted in an upstairs window of a house on Great Ormes road by a member of the public who contacted the RSPCA.
When inspectors arrived they discovered that the house was boarded up and estate agents had to be called to enable them to gain access.
Once inside the inspectors discovered an incredibly thin, female tabby who despite her initial nervousness was a very friendly cat. She was extremely thirsty and ravenously hungry.
Inspector Mike Pugh said: “This poor cat had obviously got into the building but was unable to get back out.
“She was very lucky that a passer-by noticed her and contacted the RSPCA. We estimate that she could have been in the building for as long as 15 days, and may have managed to feed on rats or mice but by the time we arrived she was extremely underweight and would not have survived for very much longer.
“This is a very friendly cat and has definitely been someone’s pet in the past. She has not been micro-chipped so we urge anyone who might recognise her to give us a call on 0300 123 8018 so we can reunite her with her owners”.
