The RSPCA is appealing for information after a cat’s body was discovered skewered, burned, and sitting on top of a disposable barbecue in Doncaster.

 

The cat was found in an alleyway opposite the shops on Beckett Road, Wheatley, on Thursday morning (16 April).

 

RSPCA Inspector Tamsin Drysdale said: “The person who found the cat said she had a skewer through her body and was laying on the top of a disposable barbecue.

 

“She was so badly burned it isn’t possible to be sure what colour her fur was.

 

“We don’t know whether this happened while the cat was alive or dead, but I suspect, and very much hope, it was the latter.

 

“The cat was microchipped and after a couple of days of trying I have now been able to speak to the person who’s details were registered. They said that they rehomed the cat and her kittens two years ago but they couldn’t tell me who to.”

The alleyway the cat was found in is directly opposite 182 Beckett Road. The cat was a female and there was no name on the chip.

“If anyone has any information at all that might help me to find out what happened here please call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018,” said Tamsin.

 

“Did you see something? Did you hear something? Do you know who the cat might have belonged to? Someone out there could be looking for and missing this cat and I am very keen to find her current owner.”

 

The RSPCA is continuing an emergency service through the lockdown period.
