Sexually abused cat found abandoned in Woking has a new home

Sexually abused cat found abandoned in Woking has a new home

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 11:55am 15th October 2019. (Updated at 12:04pm 15th October 2019)

A sexually abused cat found in Woking with wounds all over her body has found a new home.

Four months after being taken in by the RSPCA, one-year-old tortoiseshell Minnie was picked up from her foster carer by new owners Thea and Simon Mumford who live in Kent.

Minnie was originally found in Bagshot Road, Woking with burns all over her body and signs of sexual abuse.

She had a makeshift splint on her front leg, her wounds were infected with maggots and she was left unable to stand.

Despite an RSPCA appeal in June this year no further information has been obtained on how her injuries were caused.

New owner Thea, who owns seven rescue cats, said:

“My friend shared Minnie’s story on social media in June and I was just so upset reading it - how could anyone do such a thing to a defenceless animal?  

“As soon as I saw she was looking for a home I got in touch with Millbrook Animal Centre and we were successful - I still can’t believe she is here.

“When we first met her I thought it would take her a little while to warm to us but straight away she was so playful and loving, her transformation has been astonishing.”

Thea added Minnie’s neglect has left her feeling timid at times:

“She still has moments of being scared so I often let her come to me and she will nuzzle her head under my hand, looking for some affection.

“I feel in such a privileged position to have been able to help Minnie, you see stories like this and feel sad but it’s not often you are able to make a real difference.   

“I just want everyone who was affected by her story to know that this little cat will only know love for the rest of her life.”

Across Surrey and Hampshire the RSPCA rescued 602 cats last year following calls to its cruelty hotline.

Nationally the animal welfare charity rescued more moggies than any other animals in 2018.
