A friendly tabby cat continues to fight for her life after someone threw battery acid on her in Exeter, Devon. Somehow the ten-year cat named Georgie managed to find her way home on Tuesday night after the brutal attack that left her with severe burns all over her body, face and head.
According to the Facebook page of her owner, Lyn Prewer, she thought her devoted kitty “looked dead.”
“Tonight we have had the worst experience of my life… some pure evil scum has poured acid over my beautiful loving cat and we are devastated. I can not comprehend why Some “human” can do this. Tomo the police RSPCA and the press are taking this on via the vets who are horrified and I hope someone has the decency to come forward and apologize…. and never let any family go through this … my beautiful Georgie and these photos are after the acids been cleared and her mouth froths been cleaned and her burnt eyes have been creamed !
£500 reward now for Info on catching the coward,” Lyn posted.
According to the BBCNews, Georgie is being fed through a tube in her neck “due to the damage inside her mouth.”
“She is looking a little better today, will lose the tips of ears and the tip of her tongue, and the wounds need two hourly cleaning along with four-hourly drugs.”
If Georgie survives, it is likely that she will lose the tips of her ears and possibly her eyesight. It is still unknown if there is internal damage to her organs. Police believe this was a deliberate act of animal cruelty. Lyn’s ten-year-old son is devastated and can’t understand why anyone would do to something to so kind an animal as this defenseless cat.
The RSPCA is currently investigating. To help with Georgie’s veterinarian bills, please click here.
