THE RSPCA is looking for the owner of an injured cat that was found in New Tredegar.

The black and white cat was found by a member of the public on White Rose Way on Wednesday evening (12 November).

The cat was cared for by the caller until the RSPCA arrived.

New Tredegar catRSPCA animal collection officer Fiona Jackson said: “She is a very friendly semi-long haired cat who was wearing a blue flea collar and a silver and white collar.

“Unfortunately she has a fractured jaw so has had to have surgery, but she is doing well. She doesn’t have a microchip so we can’t identify her owner.

“If anyone has any information or knows of the owners please ring our inspectorate line on 0300 123 8018.”

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 reminding people to get their pets microchipped to give their lost pets the chance of returning home.
