RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information to track down the owner of a ginger and white cat.

The male cat was found in an empty property on Richards Street in Cardiff.

RSPCA inspector Selina Griffiths was able to gain entry to the property with the help of the landlord, with the cat being taken into RSPCA care.

Cat Cardiff appeal 11Dec18 pic2Inspector Griffiths said: “This cat is very friendly and was alert and was very vocal when found. We don’t know if the cat has been left at the property or if it has got itself trapped inside and belongs to an owner nearby. We’d really like to be able to return him to his owners. He is microchipped and there is a Portugal address on it.”

Anyone who may have information about this cat and knows who his owner is should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence.

The RSPCA would like to remind people to get their pets microchipped to give their lost pets the chance of returning home. It is also important to register the chip with a national database and update your contact details if you move or change phone number.
