Police are warning pet owners in Tonbridge, Kent, to be vigilant following a number of deaths of cats in the area.
At least four cats are reported to have died since 11 March, 2017 after appearing to have ingested a toxic substance. The cats were all from homes in the Lambs Bank area.
Owners are reminded not leave open containers of any hazardous or chemicals substances by their properties.
Sergeant Jo Mott said: "There is no evidence at this stage to suggest that these cats may have been deliberately poisoned. However, we would urge owners to be vigilant about what their animals are drinking."
The RSPCA has also been notified of the issue and confirmed there had also been anecdotal reports of several other cats dying in the same area over recent months.
