COPS are hunting a pet-hating psycho who slices pets ears off – leaving them for dead.
Two attacks were reported in the same postcode in Norwich in the space of two weeks but it’s feared more pets were so badly butchered, they didn’t make it back home.
Sarah Cutting, 35, from Eglington Mews, found the latest cat stumbling around with both ears hacked off.
She described finding another dead cat in the area on the same night, which she believes may have been brutally killed by a young man.
Sarah, said a local stray cat, which she named Patch, came to her doorstep on Wednesday night at around 11pm.
She said: “He comes by a lot, I tend to feed him – my husband opened the door and we shimmied him in.”
Patch was pouring blood from where both his ears had been sliced off.
She rushed him to Taverham Veterinary Hospital where he underwent surgery.
She was told by staff that he’s recovering and attempts will now be made to re-home him.
On the same night, she and her husband scouted the area to look for clues on how Patch came to be attacked, and stumbled across a dead ginger cat in a nearby lane.
She believes the dead cat may be the same one described in a post on the Lost and Found Cats in Norwich Facebook page, which states a young man had been seen swinging a cat by its tail into a garage in the NR3 area.
Sarah, who has three cats of her own, said “I have been up all night and day, I can’t bear it, it’s devastating.
“I am absolutely terrified, the majority of us are.
“I don’t want to be here to be honest, I am thinking about re-homing my own cats for their own safety. I have dragged them all inside.”
“I don’t want to be here to be honest, I am thinking about re-homing my own cats for their own safety. I have dragged them all inside.
“The person doing this is picking any cat and then abusing them, it’s scary and disgusting.
“Someone is getting kicks out of doing this – how can they live with themselves?”
It is the second known attack in less than two weeks – a family cat named Bubba suffered identical injuries in a knife attack on April 13th, just a five minute walk from where Patch was found.
TWO ATTACKS IN THE SAME POSTCODE
Mum-of-two Georgina Barnes was horrified to find five-year-old Bubba with both of his ears cut and a deep gash on his furless back where he had been stabbed.
Georgina, 27, said Bubba had not returned home all night but noted this was normal for him.
The next evening, as she was about to leave home at around 8pm, she was shocked to discover Bubba on the sofa covered in blood.
‘LOOKED LIKE HE WAS HIT BY A CAR’
“He looked like he had been hit by a car. He didn’t even let us know he was back, he didn’t make any noise.
“He had a lot of fur missing on his back, like he’d been scalped. I called my partner and he noticed Bubba’s ears were cut and he had large, deep cut on his back.”
Bubba was also rushed to Taverham Veterinary Hospital where his wounds were cleaned and stitched.
Despite the severe injuries he is on the mend and is making a good recovery.
Georgina said “Someone came to speak to me and said it doesn’t look like something another animal had done, it looks like someone had done it with a knife.
“He said it was one of the worst injuries he had every seen.”
The injuries were so severe that Bubba may require surgery on his back as the large scar may cause problems with his walking in the future.
A spokesman from the RSPCA said the charity has been informed of the brutal attack on Bubba.
