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.



Study could mean scallop fishing resumes in Cardigan Bay

Scientists at Bangor University, working with the Welsh Fishermen's Association Natural Resources Wales and the Welsh Government, have published their findings from what they say is the world's biggest ever fishing impact study.

They chose twelve sites in Cardigan Bay where scallop fishing was halted in 2009.

The sites were fished at different intensities and compared to four areas which were left unfished. The results suggest the area can sustain a certain level of fishing.

The study could open the door for fishing to resume once a sustainable level is decided.

A rare sighting of a 300-strong pod of dolphins have been caught on camera off the Pembrokeshire coast.

The rare sighting was captured by 15-year-old Charlie Thomas from Llangloffan, Pembrokeshire.

Charlie and his father Ron encountered up to 300 Common Dolphins, a rare sight indeed whilst on a fishing trip in Abercastle.

The footage show just how close Charlie and his dad got the marine mammals.

A similar sighting was witnessed by visitors and staff in the water off Skomer Island on Monday.

A Basking Shark also put in an appearance in Cardigan Bay, New Quay yesterday.

We just couldn’t believe what we were seeing. We thought we were dreaming, it was such an incredible experience and one that I’ll never ever forget.
