A kitten has been rescued by RSPCA Cymru from a Rhyl holiday park, after being attacked by gulls and dropped from the sky by one of the birds.
She was collected by an RSPCA Cymru officer from the Golden Sands Holiday Camp, at Sandy Cove after being spotted on the afternoon of 3 May.
It is believed the kitten came from a colony of feral cats based in proximity to the holiday park.
The tiny kitten, aged approximately four weeks old, has been affectionately nicknamed “Sky” by the RSPCA following her ordeal.
Sky was unhurt, despite the incident, and will now be hand-reared by staff at the RSPCA’s Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre. It is hoped she will be made available for re-homing, once she is old enough.
William Galvin, RSPCA animal collection officer, said:
“This poor kitten must have been through a terrifying ordeal – seemingly swooped upon by a gull, before being dropped to the ground.
“We’re grateful to a member of the public who spotted her and notified us, and thankfully she was rescued unhurt.
“Sky is very young, and will now be hand-reared at our Animal Centre, and should be available for re-homing when she is old enough.”
