RSPCA Cymru is appealing for witnesses after a kitten was dropped out of a moving car window at a roundabout in Pontypool.
A witness who has already spoken to the RSPCA say they saw a kitten dropped from a car on the roundabout between the A4043 and A472 on 30 June at around 4.23pm. The kitten could be seen in the middle of the busy road by the cars, with drivers spotting to attend to the young cat.
The kitten was luckily not injured and taken to a nearby vets by a member of the public and is now being cared for by a volunteer fosterer from Cats Protection’s Gwent Branch.
RSPCA inspector David Milborrow, who is investigating this incident, said the kitten is thought to be just six weeks old.
“We’re very grateful to those who managed to safely stop when this happened and help this poor kitten,” he said. “It was remarkable that this kitten survived this shocking incident without injury.
“We believe that the cat may have come from a grey car which may have been a Fiat. We’re now appealing to any other drivers who may have seen this happen. There was a red Mazda car who also stopped and we’d really like to speak to them to see what they witnessed.”
RSPCA Cymru urges anyone with any information to contact our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls to this number are treated in confidence.
