Slain cat had heart removed

POSTMAN PAT: Found dead in Benalmadena.

A BRITISH woman who cares for cats in Benalmadena has speculated that witchcraft was behind the killing of one her cats due to the horrific and disturbing manner of its death; the feline had been slit open and its heart removed.

The 44-year-old woman, who wished not to be named, said she was horrified and distraught when she found one of her beloved cats, Postman Pat, dead outside her home. “It was a brutal killing where they had used a knife or scalpel to slash him open,” said the woman.

“His leg was broken and he had various internal wounds. I am heartbroken. I took his dead body to the vet who did a biopsy, only to discover that the cat’s heart had been removed. There was no blood where I found him which makes me think that he was killed elsewhere, had his heart removed, and then placed near my home. It’s like it’s a voodoo thing or witchcraft.”

The Londoner has spent the last six years looking after dumped and feral cats in an area of Benalmadena, and currently looks after around 55 street cats that have no homes. Postman Pat was one of her favourite cats and was due to be adopted by a family in Germany this year.

“I want to bring this matter to people’s attention in case it happens again,” she said. “I have reported the matter to this police, so it is on record, and I’m hoping it’s just a one-off and it won’t happen again.

“People need to keep an eye out in case this is a ritual thing and more cats are in danger. There are no words to describe finding a cat in the state that I found Postman Pat. It’s murder.”
