RSPCA Cymru is hoping to track down the owner of an unwell ginger cat found in Tonypandy.

The animal welfare charity was alerted to the cat’s condition after he was seen at Field Street with a runny nose and runny eyes.

The cat was confined in a garden on 23 March with RSPCA animal collection officer Fiona Thomas being called to assist.

“He has severe cat flu and at our Merthyr Tydfil clinic he has been given antibiotics and pain relief. He has also been wormed and vaccinated. Hopefully following treatment he will be back to being himself.

“This cat isn’t chipped so we don’t know where he belongs. We’d love to be able to reunite him with his owner, so if anyone has any information please can they call us on our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

“He is a very sweet cat who is currently in boarding while we make these enquiries.”

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.
