The ginger male cat was found taped up inside a litter box outside the Pet’s At Home car park at Mendalgief Retail Park, Docks Way on Monday.

This poor cat was taped inside this box for an unknown period of time.

He must have been very frightened and who knows what would have happened to him had he not been found as he could not have escaped from the box by himself.

– RSPCA deputy chief inspector Emma Smith

The cat is now at a veterinary surgery. Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
