Blood covered cat tied up in carrier bag and dumped on Redruth doorstep
6:30am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
A cat lover from Redruth is calling for help to find the “sick” person who left a cat on her doorstep, tied tightly in a plastic bag.
Lynda Nicholas from Clairmont Road was physically sick after the grisly discovery. Although the cat was just about alive still, she was covered in blood and her own excrement and appeared to have very recently given birth to kittens – although there was no sign of the young.
Lynda is known in the area for her work with Sue Clinton Cat Rescue in St Day, an independent rescue centre that currently cares roughly 40 felines.
It is for this reason that Lynda believes the cat was left on her doorstep – by someone who was too cowardly to hand it over in person and who risked the animal’s life by tying it tightly in a plastic bag with no air holes.
“She couldn’t turn around in a circle if she wanted to. As far as I’m concerned it a sick person [who did this],” she said.
She is now hoping someone might have seen a person carrying a Wilkinson’s carrier bag up to her bungalow at the end of Clairmont Road, at around 9.30am on Sunday.
Anyone with information can call Lynda on 07581 264981.
The cat, which has been named Autumn, is now staying with Sue Clinton at the rescue centre and is receiving treatment from the vet, but is said to be feeding well.
