THE RSPCA is appealing for the owner of an elderly cat to come forward.

A member of the public contacted the RSPCA on Tuesday 19 May following concerns about the female white cat which was found at Drake Close, St Athan, Barry.

RSPCA animal collection officer Fiona Jackson said: “The cat is 15 years old and has been microchipped.

“She is unwell and is currently receiving treatment at RSPCA’s Merthyr Clinic.

“Although she was chipped, unfortunately when we attended the registered address the owner had not lived there for 10 years.

The RSPCA would like to remind people to get their pets microchipped to give their lost pets the chance of returning home. It is also important to register the chip with a national database and update your contact details if you move or change phone number.
