Cat's Back Shaved, 'Please Neuter This Cat' Written on Its Skin

A woman in the U.K. was dismayed and angry when she found her pet cat had a large patch of fur on its back shaved off and the words "Please neuter this cat" written on its skin, according to the local newspaper, Bedfordshire on Sunday. ITV News Anglia also reported the alarming cat attack story.

Sharon Munns, 42, of Bedford, Bedfordshire, says that whoever was upset about an un-neutered cat in the neighborhood didn't even have the right culprit. Her cat, 11-year-old Becks, was neutered years ago.

"It must be either somebody new to the area who isn't aware of that or they've got him mixed up with another cat," Munns said.

Not that any circumstances would excuse the cruelty and cowardice of the act. "
I wanted to go out and knock on everybody's door to find out who had done it," Munns said. "I couldn't believe it and don't know who could have done such a thing."

Munns immediately contacted the police and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The RSPCA has condemned what was done to Becks.

"This must have been a very frightening experience for the cat and we understand the owners' distress at this senseless attack on their pet," an RSPCA spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, Bedford police are investigating the incident, as it may constitute a criminal act.
