A 7-month-old kitten that went missing 2 weeks ago was rescued by the authorities after they were found with their throat slit in half.
The incident happened in Grangemouth, Scotland, and social media users are just left in a rage.
The young cat, Rudey, was not seen for 2 weeks after they disappeared from their house in Stirlingshire this month.
The cat was discovered alive last week, however, the cat had some gruesome injuries on their neck.
The poor neck had their neck slit open.
A GoFundMe page was set and kind people donated over £2,000 for his treatment.
The cat is currently under regular observation at a local surgery clinic.
It is still not known how the injuries were received by the cat.
A local rescue center is also working to help Rudey recover from the injuries that they had sustained.
Lyn Reid, a member of the Lyn’s Small Animal Rehoming, released a statement about the incident, where they said:
It’s hard to say how Rudey was injured, it’s a very clean cut but the vet thinks it might have happened when he first went missing. So with all the infection and skin that’s already dead and can’t be saved we are in for a long hard fight with the wee guy. But he’s only seven months so deserves a chance. He’s to go every two days to the vet to have the gash packed, as well as painkiller and antibiotic injections and this will take months of treatment. His mandible is also showing so it’s not gonna be easy. I really hope this has just been an accident and nobody is responsible.
The owner of the cat and the SPCA (Scotland) are now looking into the matter.
They are appealing for anyone with information about the horrible incident to come forward.
Mike Flynn, the Chief Superintendent, said that they were left shocked after getting to know about the sad incident.
Flynn said the incident was not reported to them.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999 or Police Scotland on 101.
Let’s hope the cat recovers from her injuries and gets back to her daily routines in a fast time.
