Vets were baffled when a cat found in London following a near-fatal hit and run turned out to be French.
Meliodas has been miraculously reunited with his owner after he was found bleeding on a stranger’s doorstep with a broken pelvis and neck fracture.
Scans revealed he was marked with a French microchip and the RSCPA enlisted the help French colleague Agnes Harinquet-Rougeot.
Enquiries eventually reunited Meliodas with his owner Steve Carrier-Simon, who moved to Raynes Park, south west London, from Belgium earlier this year.
He said: ‘Meliodas is now back home and is doing well from his surgery. His surgeons said that because he is still very young – only a year and a half – his body is recovering well.
‘He now has a metallic square in his pelvis as part of the surgery, but he seems to be doing well, I am just so grateful that the RSPCA were able to help him and that Agnes made such an effort to find me and didn’t give up.
‘I would just like to thank everyone at the RSPCA for being so helpful and I would encourage other people to ensure that they get their pets microchipped as it definitely saved my boy.’
Meliodas was found on the doorstep bleeding from his hind quarter and unable to stand.
Vets at the RSPCA hospital in Putney who gave the cat painkillers found he was probably hit by a car which caused his near-fatal injuries.
