RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after two cats were found dead together in a hedgerow in Deeside.

A member of the public contacted the RSPCA following the sad discovery of the cats off Nant Road, Connahs Quay.

RSPCA inspector Tim Jones said: “The cause of death of these two poor cats – one black, one tortoiseshell – is unknown. The black cat had a blue flea collar.

“It is a bit suspicious that the two cats were found dead together. We’re now appealing for information to try and find out what happened to them.

“Anyone who may have information about these cats should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.”

The cats were not microchipped so we are unable to identify their owner or owners.

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.
