The ISPCA has launched an appeal for information after a young kitten was found with horrific burn wounds.

The eight-week-old kitten was rescued by ISPCA Inspector Alice Lacey in Waterford city, and was immediately taken to the vet to seek treatment for his wound.

It is not known when the burn occurred, but the organisation said it may have been “some time ago”.

The kitten, named Robin, is described as “extremely friendly” and is expected to make a full recovery following sufficient veterinary treatment.

“We are appealing for any information about this kitten and his terrible injuries. It is appalling for any animal to be in this state, especially such a young and vulnerable kitten,” Inspector Lacey said.

Members of the public who may have information about where the kitten came from or how the wounds occurred are asked to contact the ISPCA’s National Animal Cruelty Helpline in confidence on 1890 515 515 or to report online at ispca.ie.
