Cat thrown 100ft from Ladywood tower block is lucky to be alive and recovering at Frankley RSPA Centre
The moggy suffered a broken jaw in the incident in Guild Close on April 6 and had to be treated by vets at the centre’s Newbrook Farm Animal Hospital.
An appeal for witnesses has been launched after CCTV controllers said they thought they had seen a person throw the cat but the footage was not clear enough to be sure.
RSPCA’s investigating inspector Mike Scargill now wants to find the owner of the cat, and find out more about how it happened.
“This is a very worrying incident and the cat is extremely lucky to be alive.
“At the moment we’ve got very little information so the details of exactly what happened are open to speculation for now, but I have visited the block of flats and made initial inquiries but no information has been forthcoming just yet.
“I am appealing to the general public for any information that might help me investigate what happened.
“The cat may have slipped and fallen on her own, but it’s very concerning to hear the CCTV controllers think they may have seen someone actually throw the cat from the building, so I’m very keen to speak with anyone with information who might be able to tell us more.
“I am also keen to find the person who owns this cat.
“She’s a young white female, with white patches of tabby markings on her tail, back and head.
“She’s really been through it and suffering a broken jaw would have been incredibly painful for her, so I’m sure being reunited with her owners will give her a much-needed boost.”
Anyone with any information can contact Inspector Scargill anonymously on 0300 123 8018.
