THE RSPCA is appealing for the owner of a cat that has been recently spayed to come forward.

The black cat was found on Ronald Road in Newport on 23 May by a member of the public who took her to a veterinary surgery as she had an open wound.

Spayed cat found in NewportRSPCA animal collection officer Fiona Jackson said: “She has been recently neutered and still has dissolvable stitches in. She isn’t microchipped so we can’t identify her owner.

“She is currently at RSPCA Merthyr Clinic and is doing fine.

“We are now trying to track down the owner. We also appeal to anyone with any information to get in touch.”

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. More information can be found at

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