RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information, after the male cat was spotted by a member of the public in the Griffithstown area of the town.

The cat was not microchipped, so RSPCA Cymru is eagerly seeking to trace an owner for the animal, and to find out how he came to be in such a worrying and emaciated state.

Members of the local community with any relevant information are being urged to contact the charity’s inspectorate appeal line.

Stephanie Davidson, RSPCA animal collection officer, said:

“RSPCA Cymru collected a heavily emaciated and thin ginger cat in the Pontypool area on Wednesday (31 May).

“Sadly, he was found in a very poor state, and is currently in the care of the RSPCA, and undergoing veterinary treatment.

“The cat was not microchipped – so we have put posters up in the local community, and are eagerly trying to trace the owner of this cat.

“If you are the owner, or have any relevant information, any contact should be made to our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.”
