Kittens rescued from Cardiff rooftop

The kittens are now doing really well

RSPCA Cymru has rescued a litter of kittens from a roof on Queen Street in Cardiff, after seagulls were spotted surrounding them at the top of the three-storey building.

The charity found the three kittens huddled in the corner of a flat roof on the 13th June. Nearby gulls were encountering the kittens; potentially because - at the peak of their nesting season - they were looking to protect young fledglings nearby.

RSPCA Cymru was able to access the kittens, and bring them to safety. It is unclear how they ended up on the roof of the building. All were found to be alert, but appeared terrified by the ordeal. Fortunately, however, they are now progressing well in RSPCA Cymru care and being looked after by a foster carer.

RSPCA inspector Selina Chan said:

“This was certainly a very unusual incident, with these poor kittens found terrified on the roof of a Queen Street building, surrounded by gulls.

“It’s a complete mystery how the kittens ended up there - but anyone with information can contact our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.”
