The RSPCA are appealing to trace the person/persons responsible following the discovery of two dead cats at the foot of a high-rise in Druids Heath.

The RSPCA were alerted to the incident this morning (17th July) and an inspector found the animals laying close together outside Kingswood House, in Kimpton Close, Druids Heath.

Initial investigations by the animal welfare charity indicate the adult cats were thrown deliberately off one of the flat balconies in the 12-storey building.

A photograph (image below) of the dead cats has been released as part of an appeal for information. One is a white male cat with black markings and the other is described as a dark-coloured female tabby.

RSPCA inspector Jonathan Radcliffe, who is investigating, said: “We received a report from a caller who found the deceased cats at 8am but it seems they may have been there from around 5am as a man going to work has now come forward to say he noticed them at that time.

“The cats are not microchipped and have no identification on them so we don’t know who they belong to at this stage but we are hoping members of the public will recognise them and be able to help us with our inquiries.

“It is barbaric that someone could simply throw a pet out of a window in this way – and in this case they did it twice. Whoever is responsible for this cruel act needs to be found and held accountable.”

The inspector will be carrying out a leaflet drop in the area as part of an appeal. If you have any information contact the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

  1. This needs correcting. The RSPCA sent out a press release saying that they investigated and it was an accident. The vast majority of people in Druids Heath are animal lovers who care passionately about animal welfare.
