RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after an injured cat was found in Ammanford.
The ginger and white cat was found with a broken leg in Upper Brynamman on 11 November.
He was microchipped – but unfortunately the details were not accurate.
RSPCA inspector Nic de Celis said: “His name is Jasper and he is around 18 years-old. He is registered to an owner at Leamington Spa, but all the details on the chip are out of date.
“I’m guessing his owner has moved to the area and he has got himself lost and sadly injured.
“We’re appealing for information to try and track his owner down.”
The cat has been taken to RSPCA’s Merthyr Tydfil Clinic for treatment. Jasper is eating and drinking and doing well. He is currently on pain relief and antibiotics.
Microchipping your pet gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they become lost or are stolen. But microchipping is only effective if pet owners make sure their contact details are correct.
Anyone who may have information about Jasper and knows who his owner is 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.
