Inspectors are now trying to trace the owner of the poorly cat as he has no microchip or name tag.

RSPCA Inspector Nick Wheelhouse said:

“Understandably this poor cat is in a really bad way and we would really like to trace the owner as soon as possible.

It is amazing he has survived but he has broken legs and is in a bad way.

“He is in such a sorry state we feared the worst for him. He must be someone’s pet and they may be wondering where he is. When he was found he had no microchip or tag, just a blue flea collar.

“We would also like anyone with information about this incident to come forward. This would’ve been an extremely distressing incident for the cat and he has been left in a lot of pain with very serious injuries.”

Can you help?

Anyone with information about the incident or who recognises his description and knows his owner can contact Inspector Wheelhouse on the RSPCA appeal line: 0300 123 8018.
