Cat abandoned in Glasgow front garden as Scottish SPCA launch appeal to find owners

The Scottish SPCA has appealed after a cat was found abandoned in a front yard.

The pet was discovered in its stretcher outside a house on Kilmartin Place in Thornliebank, south Glasgow, on June 28, and was picked up by residents of the property while trying to track down its owners.

However, after eight days with no success, they turned to the Scottish Animal Welfare Organization for assistance.

The black cat, who is not chipped, was in good health when it was found, but was very nervous and scared.

Anyone with information on him is encouraged to get in touch.

The appeal published by the Scottish SPCA on Friday said: “We are asking for information after a cat was born on May 28th.

“The Scottish Animal Welfare Organization was made aware of the incident after residents of the estate tried unsuccessfully for eight days to find the owner of the animal before calling for animal aid on July 6th.”

Scottish SPCA inspector Sian Robertson said: “The cat is male and was found in a black cloth cat stretcher with a label. He was wearing a blue striped collar when he was found.

“Unfortunately the cat is not chipped, so we have not yet been able to find its owner.

“He is understandably very scared and nervous, but otherwise appears to be in good health.

“We know that the person who left the cat may have intended to find the animal, but this is not the right way to give up an animal when you can no longer care for them.

“Fortunately, he’s now in one of our animal rescue and relocation centers, where he’s getting the care he needs.

“If someone recognizes this cat, we ask them to contact our confidential animal hotline on 03000 999 999.”
