A CAT suffered serious injuries after being thrown from a window on the fifth floor of a block of flats in Croydon.
The male tabby was found on the pavement outside Dartmouth House, in Elmwood Road, at 5.30pm last Sunday (August 17).
He had suffered a collapsed lung, broken femur and shattered rear legs.
The person who contacted the RSPCA said the cat had been hurled from the window on the fifth floor of Dartmouth House.
He was taken to an animal hospital in Putney and the charity is now trying to trace his owner, as the cat has no microchip or name tag.
Nick Wheelhouse, an RSPCA inspector, urged witnesses to come forward.
"Understandably this poor cat is in a really bad way and we would really like to trace the owner as soon as possible," he said.
"It is amazing he has survived but he has broken legs and is in a bad way.
"He is in such a sorry state we feared the worst for him. He must be someone's pet and they may be wondering where he is. When he was found he had no microchip or tag, just a blue flea collar.
"We would also like anyone with information about this incident to come forward.
"This would've been an extremely distressing incident for the cat and he has been left in a lot of pain with very serious injuries."
Anyone with information about the incident or who recognises his description and knows his owner can contact Inspector Wheelhouse on the RSPCA appeal line - 0300 123 8018.
