Weirdo attacking cats and shaving defenceless moggies leaving locals baffled

2 min read

A mystery cat shaver is going around Kent and taking patches of fur out of poor felines in a bizarre spree of mischief.

The problem has become so bad that animal charity Animals Lost and Found have set up a map detailing every attack committed by the follicle freak that is being updated every day.

The first attack was reported just before Christmas and there are no signs that the attacker is slowing down.

The first victim, a tabby belonging to Victoria Griffiths, from Walderslade, came back from his adventures with a large bald patch.

The 10-year-old moggy returned home with a huge, strangely-shaped patch of fur cut away, leaving his bare skin exposed.

"I was so angry that some nasty human had decided to shave my cat. It was very distressing,” she said.

Animals Lost and Found said it wants to give owners the chance to take every precaution to keep their furry friends safe.

The charity said that while incidents have been reported across Kent, from Northfleet down to Dover, the majority seem to be confined to Medway, and in particular Gillingham, Chatham and Rochester.

Charity spokesperson Natasha McPhee said: "In some areas on the map it is more dense than others. There are roads where two or three attacks have happened."

Some of the stories the charity has heard about the crazed attacks have been bizarre.

One woman said that despite her following her cat when he goes outside, he still managed to return with bald patches.

She told the charity: "It is obviously a human who is doing it, so she is getting frightened of people."

Kerry Ryan, 50, from Chatham, said her cat Dennis used to go out all the time but now she is too scared to let him out after he came home with an area around his back legs completely shaved.

"I am so angry and deeply shocked that people can do this kind of thing to a cat or any animal," she said.

Animals Lost and Found is advising cat owners to be as vigilant as possible, even if it means purchasing security cameras or keeping their pets indoors.
