RSPCA Cymru has issued an appeal after two cats were believed to have been poisoned in Senghenydd.
The animal charity has appealed for information after the latest case of cat poisonings around the borough, and last month described the number of incidents as “deeply concerning”.
The cats, from Stanley Street in Senghenydd, were both euthanised on veterinary advice after being diagnosed with acute renal failure and displaying symptoms consistent with anti-freeze poisoning.
Owner, Rhian Hardy, said: “No owner should have to see their cats end up in the way Louie and Scoob did. It was such a horrible, horrible experience.
“The whole family is so sad, and the kids are absolutely devastated. We have one cat remaining, who is now missing the others so much. It’s been such a tough time.”
Anyone with relevant information is being urged to contact the RSPCA’s inspectorate appeal line, while local cat owners have been reminded to remain vigilant.
RSPCA inspector Sophie Daniels said: “Our thoughts are with Louie and Scoob’s owner, following these shocking reports from the Senghenydd area.
“Though we do not know if these poisonings were intentional or deliberate, it is hugely concerning to learn of two cat deaths within the local area.
“We understand these poisoning incidents to have taken place in early April – and we are urging anyone with any information to contact our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence.
“It’s also important cat owners in Senghenydd are vigilant at this time. If somebody suspects a poisoning, it’s vital they remain calm, move the pet from any suspected source of poison, and contact a vet straight away.”
