RSPCA Cymru is searching for the owner of a young male kitten found in the IMG_3872 area of Swansea.

The white and tabby kitten, aged approximately four months of age, was found by a member of the public on Waunarlwydd rugby field, on Monday 27 March.

Unfortunately, the kitten is not microchipped – prompting an appeal from RSPCA Cymru to track down the owner, and return the kitten to his family.

The charity is also highlighting how the incident is another example as to the importance of permanently identifying pets.

Ellie West, RSPCA animal collection officer, said:

“This kitten is so friendly and sociable – and, to me, it would appear to be a classic example of a young kitten escaping from their home; and not knowing how to get back.

“We are absolutely desperate to reunite this beautiful kitten with his owners.

“Anyone with any information as to where this kitten may have come from is urged to contact our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Let’s get this sweet boy back home!

“Microchipping pets is so important – and had this kitten been chipped, we could have contacted his owners immediately and returned him straight home.”
