The RSPCA is appealing for information after three cats, all from the same home in the John Burrows Park area of Hadleigh in Essex, have recently returned to their owner suffering with unusual injuries.
The first of the cats to suffer injury returned home on Wednesday, 23 March with severe bruising and bleeding heavily from a nasty wound on his back leg.
Just over a week later, on Saturday, 2 April, the second cat was found with her claws missing, a sore that ran down the length of her tail, and bald patches.
The third cat was discovered on Sunday, 17 April with puncture wounds and a deep, bleeding sore that went all the way through his paw. Later, vets discovered another wound to his leg.
