RSPCA appeal for help solving cat poisonings
Animal welfare charity RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information and warning pet owners to be cautious following further reports of cats being poisoned.

The charity was contacted last week after a male tabby cat returned to his home in Church Village, Rhondda Cynon Taf extremely unwell and showing symptoms of poisoning. He was taken to the vet's and put to sleep.

A second report of suspected cat poisoning in the same village has also come in.

The callers both took their cats to a vets where it was confirmed they had been poisoned. Sadly both cats were put to sleep on veterinary advice.

Meanwhile suspected cat poisonings are also being investigated in Risca, Newport. A cat owner lost two cats to suspected poisoning. A five-year-old tabby and tan eight-year-old ginger cat returned home on different days unable to stand and very well. Both were taken to the vet's and sadly had to be put down.

Last week five cats, all belonging to the same owner in Wrexham, had to be put down after suspected poisoning. And last month seven cats in Cardiffdied from similar symptoms.

Poisoning a cat deliberately is a criminal offence. Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, the maximum penalty for those found guilty is up to six months imprisonment and a fine of up to £20,000.
