Urgent appeal after severely abused cat found in Woking
The cat, who has been named Minnie, had wounds all over her body and signs of sexual abuse. We're urgently appealing for information after the abused cat was found in Woking.
The cat was found with burns all over her body and signs of sexual abuse
The nine-month-old tortoiseshell cat was found with burns all over her body and signs of sexual abuse. She was found near Bagshot Road yesterday.
She also had a makeshift splint on her front right leg and is unable to stand. She's now being cared for by local vets, where staff have named her Minnie as she's so small.
She was thankfully reported to us and we're now looking into how she got into this condition.
Minnie is "very bright and a little fighter"
Liz Wood, deputy manager at our Millbrook Animal Centre, said:
"It appears she may have been severely abused and she has a number of wounds full of maggots. The vets believe these may have originally been burns as she had candle wax all over her tail. She also shows signs of having been sexually abused - it's absolutely awful.
"Minnie also had a makeshift splint on one of her front legs and is currently not able to stand on her back legs so we think she has some soft tissue and nerve damage as her x-rays are clear of any fractures.
"She isn't out of the clear yet but we're hoping she will make a recovery as she's very bright and a little fighter.
"We''ve never seen a cat so abused before and it's heartbreaking that this has happened to her."
