The RSPCA is hoping to reunite a kitten with her owner, after the plucky moggy found herself stranded 15ft up a tree.

The young female kitten, thought to be around five months old, was rescued on Friday last week (14 April) after being spotted by a concerned member of the public up the tree in Jardine Crescent, Coventry.

RSPCA inspector Louise Marston said: “A local tree surgeon carefully climbed the tree to get her down. As soon as he got near her, she climbed even higher – but he managed to get hold of her and safely secured her inside his jacket while he climbed down.

“I scanned her for a microchip but sadly she doesn’t have one, so we have no way of knowing where she came from.

“She has an orange-type substance on her head and her left ear, it looks like paint but we can’t be sure for certain what it is. It is a distinguishing feature and her owner might recognise that this is their cat.

“There is every chance that she is a much-loved family pet whose owners are sick with worry about where she is, so we’d love to reunite her with her family.”

The cat, who has been nicknamed Jardine, is currently in the RSPCA’s care while an owner is located. If no owner comes forward, she will be put up for rehoming.

Anyone who has any information about who owns Jardine should contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018, and leave a message for Inspector Marston.
