RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after two cats were found dead together in a hedgerow in Deeside. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A member of the public contacted the RSPCA following the sad discovery of the cats off Nant Road, Connahs Quay. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

RSPCA inspector Tim Jones said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The cause of death of these two poor cats – one black, one tortoiseshell – is unknown. The black cat had a blue flea collar. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It is a bit suspicious that the two cats were found dead together. We’re now appealing for information to try and find out what happened to them. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Anyone who may have information about these cats should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The cats were not microchipped so we are unable to identify their owner or owners. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In October a pet owner from Shotton contacted to RSPCA after vets confirmed their beloved cat had been killed from poisoning.   ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

RSPCA inspector Rachael Davies said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I’ve spoken to the vet and they said this is a regular occurrence in the Deeside area. They don’t seem to be happening in one specific area, as they have been dotted around about all over Deeside, for example, Shotton, Connah’s Quay, Garden City.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

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. More information can be found at www.rspca.org.uk/allaboutanimals/pets/general/microchipping ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
