RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after a seriously unwell cat was found in North Cornelly, Bridgend.

A member of the public contacted the RSPCA after they found the cat in an underweight and weak state on Friday [11 September] at Ael Y Bryn.

North Cornelly catRSPCA inspector Julie Fadden said: “She was very thin and lethargic. I took her to RSPCA’s Merthyr Veterinary Clinic and the vet sadly said she has kidney failure and an ulcerated tongue.

“The caller told us that they saw the cat being thrown over a wall Friday last week (4 September) and the cat ran off. The call didn’t see the cat until a week later on Thursday (11 September) when she was found in a bad state.

“We are not sure what has happened here, but it seems likely this poor cat was dumped because she was poorly. Or this cat could have an owner out there looking for her and who is desperately worried.”

Sadly the cat has not been microchipped which means we can’t track down her owner.

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

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.
