RSPCA appeal for information after body of headless cat found on grave in March cemetery





The RSPCA is appealing for information after the body of a beloved family pet cat was found with her head missing on a grave.

The cat was found on January 6 on a grave near March Cemetery in Station Road, by a member of the public who took the body to a local vet for examination. The vet believes the cut was surgical, and the head was removed after death.

The vet has informed the owners of the adult female ginger and white cat.

RSPCA animal rescue officer Naomi Sadoff, who is investigating, said: “We are very grateful that the member of the public was kind enough to take this poor animal to a vet for further examination.

“Sometimes in cases like this, the animal has died from other causes, such as being hit by a vehicle, before a wild animal finds it and takes the head. However, like the vet who examined the cat’s body, we do suspect this could be suspicious as the cut happened after death and appears surgical and made with a sharp tool. The vet feels it is unlikely to be an animal attack, which is why we are not ruling out other possibilities.

“The location of where the poor cat on a grave was found is also suspicious.

“I’m very keen to hear from anyone with any information about what happened to this poor cat, and my heart goes out to her family.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact the RSPCA’s inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018
