THE RSPCA is looking for the owner of a cat that was found in Cardiff.

The male black and white cat was found yesterday (Wednesday 29 October) by a member of the public at Bryn Y Nant, Llanedeyrn, who contacted the RSPCA.

RSPCA inspector Christine McNeill said the cat had been recently castrated but was not microchipped.

“He has a bite wound on his back left paw, but otherwise he is okay,” she said.

“This cat must belong to somebody and I think he has just got lost.

A microchip is recommended by the RSPCA as an effective way of permanently linking pets to their owners, increasing the chances of them being reunited if the animal is lost, stolen or strays.

The RSPCA is therefore remind people to get their pets microchipped to give their lost pets the chance of returning home.

Anyone who may have information about this cat should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence.
