A black cat has been rescued from a tight squeeze – after getting their neck badly caught-up in netting between two Port Talbot properties.
RSPCA Cymru was contacted on Saturday (14 April) after a member of the public saw the panicked cat thrashing around and constrained by green netting adjacent to two walls.
An RSPCA animal welfare officer attended Trefelin Crescent, and was able to cut the terrified moggy free from the netting.
Fortunately, the cat was not injured from the ordeal – so was able to be released, and was tagged with a paper collar by the animal welfare charity.
RSPCA animal welfare officer Paula Milton said: “This poor cat was absolutely terrified, and badly caught up in netting between two Port Talbot properties.
“External netting can cause problems for inquisitive cats – and this poor moggy was hopelessly trapped; so we’re grateful for the member of the public for contacting us so we could come to this black cat’s aid.
“Unfortunately, the cat was not microchipped – something which can be so important in reuniting pets with their owners.
“However, thankfully, the cat was unharmed by the ordeal and was able to be released – with a paper collar so any owner can contact us and find out what happened.”
