THE RSPCA is appealing for information after a cat was found in Cardiff with a pellet lodged inside her nose.

The stray tabby and white cat was found by a member of the public on 25 November in the Newport Road area.

XRAY Cardiff CatAs she sniffled a lot she was taken to a veterinary surgery the following day and was named Sniffly. Following other visits, an X-ray showed that she had a pellet inside her nose which was removed on 24 January.

RSPCA inspector Selina Chan said: “We are appealing for information to try and find out who did this to Sniffly.

“This poor cat was found with its left side peppered with pellet wounds.

“One pellet has been removed but other pellets were not removed as they had healed and it would do more harm than good to remove them.

“The cat is being looked after by the member of public who found her. After receiving the appropriate treatment, Sniffly has now recovered.”

Anyone who may have information about this incident should contact inspector Chan through the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
