A KITTEN which was found abandoned in Nottingham, England, sustained injuries which suggest that he had been ‘sexually assaulted’, according to the RSPCA.
The nine-week-old kitten, who has now been named as Benny, was taken to the emergency vets on Sunday, November 24, after a member of the public discovered him frightened on the street.
Hayley Day, a RSPCA animal collection officer, said that when she saw the kitten he was “covered in faeces and very skinny.”
She added: “The vet said the injuries suggested he had been sexually abused and it is so upsetting to think of the pain and suffering he has been through.
“Benny was not micro-chipped and so I am appealing for help in tracing his owner who may live near the area where he was found.”
The vet currently caring for Benny revealed that the injuries sustained to his body point towards the kitten being sexually abused and that he is now being examined to assess the extent of his injuries.
We at Euro Weekly News understand that the kitten is being treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatories to help reduce the swelling to his body.
