A cat has been left with severe injuries after boiling water was thrown over it. The animal's owner, from Cheltenham, says the pet ran into her house in agony. She says she could feel the scalding water, still hot, on his fur.
A pet cat was found scalded in Leckhampton, Gloucestershire, after boiling water was apparently poured on it. The cat has been treated by a vet and is likely to survive.
