Members of the public have been advised by RSPCA Cymru to look out for a ginger tabby cat with a missing tail, who may be injured, after the tail was recovered from the Railway Street area.

The tail was initially found by a member of the public on 5 May. There was no blood visible near the body part, suggesting the tail had been ripped off relatively cleanly.

RSPCA Cymru suspects the cat may have been involved in a road traffic accident, but are urging the local community to keep an eye out for an injured cat, and urging anyone with any pertinent information to contact the charity’s inspectorate appeal line.

Selina Chan, RSPCA inspector, said:

“It isn’t uncommon for body parts of animals to be found in this way, and it’s possible the cat may have been involved in a road traffic collision, or attacked by another animal.

“We’d urge people across Splott to be on the look out for a ginger tabby cat who may be injured. Should anyone have any information to report to us, they can reach our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.”
