A cat found with a cable tie cruelly and deliberately twisted around her body has been left petrified by her ordeal.
The terrified black and white moggy was discovered by workmen in a warehouse who, concerned for her welfare, called on Blue Cross for help.
The workers had been unable to catch the cat – who we’ve named Willow – because she was in such a distressed state, so two members of our Suffolk rehoming centre team made the journey to Felixstowe docks to help her.
Susie Winship, Blue Cross Animal Welfare Assistant, said: “Willow was extremely distressed when we arrived and it was horrible to see a cat in such a terrified state. We could clearly see that she had a black cable tie woven around her waist, which was obviously causing her a great deal of discomfort.”
Armed with cosy blankets to make the rescue attempt as stress-free as possible for Willow, two members of our team managed to catch the young cat when she wedged herself inside a gap in a desk.
