“She’s now been taken to RSPCA Merthyr Clinic and was given a veterinary examination. She has severe alopecia and sores over most of her body.

“She didn’t have a collar or microchip, so we can’t identify her owner.

“It appears that this cat has been abandoned and someone has just dumped her alone in the cold. We don’t know how long she could have been there on her own. She is really shy.”

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