NORTH WALES – A four-week-old kitten needed to be rescued after being attacked by gulls and dropped from the sky by one of the birds.
The tiny kitten, now nicknamed Sky, was rescued by the RSPCA from the Golden Sands Holiday Park, at Sandy Cove, Rhyl, North Wales, after being spotted on the afternoon of May 3.
William Galvin, who is the RSPCA animal collection officer, said: ‘This poor kitten must have been through a terrifying ordeal – seemingly swooped upon by a gull, before being dropped to the ground.
‘We’re grateful to a member of the public who spotted her and notified us, and thankfully she was rescued unhurt.
‘Sky is very young, and will now be hand-reared at our animal centre, and should be available for re-homing when she is old enough.’
Sky was unharmed despite the incident, and will now be hand-reared by staff at the RSPCA’s Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre.
It is now believed the kitten came from a colony of feral cats living close to the holiday park.
