The RSPCA’s appealing for information after a Suffolk family’s cat had an ear sliced off and the other severely cut.

Rescue cat Lola, who’s four or five years old, was found on Cavan Road in Ipswich on 8 February. Both her ears were cut – one removed completely.

This was a shocking attack on a beloved family pet. At the moment we have very little information as to who did this, so the police and I are urging anybody who may know something, to get in touch.

It’s completely horrific to carry out such a nasty act of cruelty on this poor cat.
