Warning after cats poisoned in Forfar

The incidents have happened in the Threewells Drive area throughout December and the Scottish SPCA has been made aware of five deaths and a further two more have been reported but with no details.

Acting chief inspector Alastair Adams, said: “All the cats showed symptoms of lacking co-ordination, vomiting, dilated eyes, dehydration, cold, lethargic and fitting. Most vets associate these symptoms with poisoning. Using poison, or any dangerous item, with the intent of deliberately harming animals is a crime and is enforceable by law. We would urge all pet owners to be vigilant in the Threewells Drive area.”

Anyone with information should call the charity’s helpline on 03000 999 999.
