A cat owner from Bedford says it's despicable that someone has shaved a patch out of her pet's back and written "please neuter this cat" in red pen. Sharon Munn's 11-year-old cat Becks was neutered eight years ago.
She believes it was a case of mistaken identity - but has been shocked that someone could do that to a cat. The RSPCA has said it must have been a very frightening experience for Becks - and the charity has appealed for anyone with information toget in touch.
