A mischievous cat has taken a Comet goldfish from a pond and taken it back to his home in Barry.

Goldfish appeal Barry March19 pic2The fish – which is around four to six inches long – was found by the owner of the cat who brought it to their Pontypridd Road house on 24 March.

Luckily the goldfish had not been injured – apart from a few claw/tooth wounds but will hopefully make a full recovery – and was placed into a container with water, with the RSPCA being called.
