Golf team rescue cat on Montgomerie Course

Category: News

The Celtic Manor golf team were called into unusual action when a frail and starving cat was found on The Montgomerie golf course.

Assistant golf manager Gareth Bounds said: "We received a call on Sunday from a group of golfers on the 12th hole of the Monty Course, who were concerned about a kitten's welfare. I went out to see the group, collected the small cat and brought him back to the clubhouse. We got some towels in a cardboard box and housed him in the bagstore with a small plate of water until we could get more assistance."

Gareth then called RSPCA Cymru for advice and the cat was collected later in the afternoon. The RSPCA are now appealing for information about the cat's owner.

Gemma Black, deputy chief inspector for RSPCA, said: “A cat collar and a dog’s lead were found next to the cat so she may well have been with an owner, but there are no houses nearby. We think the cat is only around 18 months-old and a vet found no obvious issues apart from her being thin. She was starving hungry when offered food. She is a lovely cat. She is not microchipped so unfortunately we are not able to track down her owner.”

Anyone who may have information about her owner is asked to contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence. The cat is currently in care at RSPCA Merthyr Tydfil Clinic.
