We are appealing for the owner of a cat found in Redditch to contact us.

Snowy the cat © RSPCAThe white cat, named Snowy, was found in a garden in Ash Tree Road on Monday 24 February.She was collected by us after a resident managed to confine her in their summerhouse.

Snowy had been seen in the area for some time, but she had developed a very sore looking ear wound which prompted a resident to contact us.

The cat, thought to be aged four to five years old, was collected by Inspector Mark Lewis and taken to a nearby vet for treatment.  It is thought she has ear cancer in her left ear, which had caused the wound.

She will probably have to have her ear amputated

Mark said:

“Snowy wasn’t microchipped so we have no idea who she belongs to.  Although she had been fed by other people in the area for a while, it may be that she has an owner out there who is missing her.

“If anyone thinks they know who Snowy belongs to they should contact the RSPCA inspector information line on 0300 123 8018.

Snowy’s information and photo has also been put on Petslocated.com so people can visit the website for details.
