The RSPCA are appealing to trace the person responsible after two cats were found dead.

It's thought they were thrown from a tower block in Birmingham.

The charity believe they were deliberately thrown off a flat balcony on a 12-storey building.

An inspector found the animals lying close together this morning outside Kingswood House, in Kimpton Close, Druids Heath.

A photograph of the dead cats has been released as part of an appeal for information. One is a white male cat with black markings and the other is described as a dark-coloured female tabby.

RSPCA inspector Jonathan Radcliffe, who is investigating, said,

We received a report from a caller who found the deceased cats at 8am but it seems they may have been there from around 5am as a man going to work has now come forward to say he noticed them at that time.

The cats are not microchipped and have no identification on them so we don’t know who they belong to at this stage but we are hoping members of the public will recognise them and be able to help us with our inquiries.

It is barbaric that someone could simply throw a pet out of a window in this way - and in this case they did it twice. Whoever is responsible for this cruel act needs to be found and held accountable.
