St Lawrence cat partially castrated

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Jo Haward with Sonic Jo Haward with Sonic

Thugs are thought to have attempted to castrate a family cat.

Sonic, aged nine months, was rushed to the vet who had to operate to complete the neutering.

Owner Jo Haward, of The Spinnakers, St Lawrence, said he had spent the night outside and returned home injured the following morning.

Staff at Church View Veterinary Clinic in Southminster operated on Sonic and found the wound was very neat, unlike what they would expect from a fight or injury.

Why do we think it was thugs? I note the comment - 'found the wound was very neat - if the neat thugs were doing such a good job they would have finished doing it. It's not as if someone rushed in and stopped them.

Far more likely that the cat slipped and impaled himself - hence the neat incision - and went home.

But that's far less paranoid making for the news and less blame on the cat...
Let's try and be more logical...

We hear the voice of reason from Jack222.

There is no evidence of thuggery whatsoever, so in fairness one can only maintain an open mind on the cause of this unfortunate occurrence.

Exactly he same point I was making regarding the Braintree and Witham Times report (dated 11th February) titled 'Windscreen smashed by pellet fired from A120 bridge'. Premature conclusions brought about by paranoia.

Who knows, perhaps poor old Sonic was jumping over one of those garden walls where people have embedded bits of broken glass?

Ouch. My eyes are beginning to water!
