Scotland’s animal welfare charity has appealed for information after the body of a cat was found on a Tayside beach.
The deceased feline was discovered by a member of the public on a stretch of sand between Broughty Ferry and Monifeith on July 16.
Scottish SPCA inspector Alastair Adams said the male tabby and white cat was found at around 10.20am.
He said: “We believe the cat had recently visited a vet as he had a shaved patch on his leg.
“He was not microchipped or neutered and we think he was around middle age, so between five and seven years old.
“We are unsure of the circumstances that led to the animal being on the beach.
“If anyone has any information about who the cat belonged to or how he came to be on the beach, please contact our animal helpline on 03000 999 999. Calls can be treated confidentially.”
