RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information to try and track down the owner of an injured grey cat found at Maindee Parade, Newport.

The charity was called yesterday (25 August) after the male cat was found in a collapsed state and was unable to walk.

“The poor thing was in a lot of pain as he was unable to stand and was screaming out in pain. He is now on pain relief at the vets.

“We don’t know who is owner is as he isn’t microchipped so we are trying to get the word out there to find out who he may belong to.”

Anyone who may have information about this cat 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.
