Family Upset After Cat Repeatedly Found Shaved
"A Campbell River family has a hair-raising mystery on their hands as they try to figure out who has been shaving one of their pet cats.
Jo Jo Yarjau says it started in January, when the family noticed their cat Tabby was acting strange.
`She was just walking around and she wouldn`t let anybody touch her and she wouldn`t really eat,` Yarjau said.
Eventually, she went to pick the cat up and noticed she was missing a large swath of fur on her underbelly.
`The first time it was the base of her tail as well, and under her belly,` Yarjau said."
I realize that in Canada there`s nothing to do but invent new names for snow, drink Molson beer, and curse Justin Bieber, but shaving cats is a cruel and inhumane prank.
There are a lot of human and animal predators; I would strongly advise cat owners not to let their cats venture outside. The family is fortunate that the cat was merely shaved, there`s twisted souls who get their jollies skinning and torturing felines.
I hope that the culprit will be quickly apprehended and jailed for animal cruelty.
