Two charities in north Wales have come together to fund surgery for an injured kitten found homeless in Prestatyn.
A member of the public found the four-month old female kitten in the town with a badly damaged leg that required urgent amputation to protect her.
In total, £600 was needed to fund the surgery - and, with no known owner, two RSPCA branches in north Wales and the Cats Protection charity raised the necessary funds.
This goes to show what can be achieved for an animal in need, where RSPCA branches, Cats Protection branches, vets and the public all work together for the good of an animal.
The kitten has since recovered well from the surgery and she is continuing her rehabilitation process with a foster carer, who has named her Blaze.
Thankfully, a member of the public found Blaze, who must have been through a horrendous ordeal for her leg to be in such a desperate state. It was fantastic to be able work with a neighbouring RSPCA branch, and Cats Protection Colwyn & District, with us all coming together to help this kitten, who was in such urgent need of support. Helping Blaze is another example of the work we are doing each and every day to further animal welfare in the local community.

A kitten has been rescued after being stuck 50-feet up a tree in Maesteg during the height of Storm Doris.
Topper, a male kitten, was unable to get down safely after getting trapped up the tree on Metcalfe Street.
RSPCA Cymru enlisted the support of the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, who cut down the tree and rescued Topper on Saturday. He's since been reunited with his owner.
It's frankly amazing that Topper managed to stay in the tree securely for as long as he did, as the wind was really thrashing this brave kitten about. We’re grateful to the support of South Wales Fire and Rescue Service in completing this rescue; which is another great example of how we often work together to help animals in the local community. Topper was very cold and wet, but thankfully suffered no injuries at all – and it was great to be able to help reunite him with his owner.
We’re so grateful to the RSPCA, and the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, who went out of their way to help Topper. They were absolutely fantastic. He’s settled back in really well, is back with the mother cat, and is now more affectionate than ever!
