A 15-year-old cat, reported missing by his owners three-months ago, was found on Monday by SA Police on the side of Gorge Road in Millbook, in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. The cat, named Stitch, was found in a cardboard box wrapped inside of a garbage bag.
According to the RSPCA South Australia, authorities are seeking public assistance identifying the culprits responsible for the heinous crime. The cat’s owners reported hearing a car’s door slamming outside of their home at about the time Stitch disappeared.
Police accidentally noticed a garbage bag inside of the cardboard box. The bag was secured with zip ties. Stitch had been dropped in a remote area where he was unlikely to be found. It is likely someone wanted the cat to die a slow painful death.
When found, Stitch was severely underweight and had an infected wound on his stomach and will have surgery to repair his injuries. The cat is very friendly in spite of the traumatic ordeal he has just been through.
Stitch’s owners have since surrendered their cat to the RSPCA SA because of personal circumstances. They are not suspects in the case.
If you have any information please contact RSPCA South Australia’s 24-hour cruelty hotline on 1300 4 777 22.
