A four-week-old kitten has been rescued from a Rhyl holiday park after being attacked by gulls and dropped from the sky by one of the birds.

The kitten was collected by an RSPCA Cymru officer from the Golden Sands Holiday Camp at Sandy Cove after being spotted on May 3.

It's believed that the kitten came from a colony of feral cats based near to the holiday park.

The four-week-old kitten was unhurt, despite the incident, and has been affectionately nicknamed 'Sky' by the RSPCA following her ordeal.

She will now be hand-reared by staff at the Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre and it's hoped that she will be made available for re-homing when she is olf enough.

This poor kitten must have been through a terrifying ordeal - seemingly swooped upon by a gull, before being dropped to the ground.

We're grateful to a member of the public who spotted her and notified us, and thankfully she was rescued unhurt.

Sky is very young, and will now be hand-reared at our Animal Centre, and should be available for re-homing when she is old enough.

– William Galvin, RSPCA animal collection officer
