Sono, who was six-months-old, was found last week in the run-down building in Wimbledon.

He was spotted by a neighbour who was putting out the bins in the alleyway behind their house. They looked up, and suddenly saw the the young male kitten.

There was a brown cord attached to the beam in the garage at one end, with the other end tied around the cat’s neck.

This was a callous, macabre and incredibly distressing incident and one which is very upsetting for the family of the poor cat.

This was a truly horrible as well as pointless way for Sono to die – he must have suffered immense pain and distress in his final moments.

We urge anyone who knows anything at all about this terrible incident to come forward and let us know.

Whoever did this is obviously capable of great cruelty and I want to do anything I can to stop them doing this again.

– Mike Beaman, RSCPA

It is not known when the kitten died. Sono was found last Thursday morning. Neighbours say they did not hear anything the night before.
