RSPCA try to trace owner of injured cat

RSPCA inspectors are urging witnesses to come forward after a cat was thrown from the window of a fifth storey flat in Croydon.

The male tabby cat was found on the pavement on Elmwood Road with a collapsed lung, broken femur, and shattered rear legs at around 5.30pm last Sunday.

He was found by a passer-by on the ground outside Dartmouth House with severe injuries and taken to RSPCA Putney Animal Hospital.

Inspectors are now trying to trace the owner of the poorly cat as he has no microchip or name tag.

Understandably this poor cat is in a really bad way and we would really like to trace the owner as soon as possible. It is amazing he has survived but he has broken legs and is in a bad way.

He is in such a sorry state we feared the worst for him. He must be someone’s pet and they may be wondering where he is. When he was found he had no microchip or tag, just a blue flea collar.

We would also like anyone with information about this incident to come forward. This would’ve been an extremely distressing incident for the cat and he has been left in a lot of pain with very serious injuries.
