A CAT is recovering today after suffering horrific injures in what his owner believes was an attack by yobs.

Harry suffered a broken hip, broken jaw and broken ribs and lost several teeth in the incident.

His jaw needed to be wired up and Harry needed staples in his wounds.

His owner, who wishes to remain nameless through fear of repercussions, said she believes Harry was targeted by drunken "yobos" walking home from town last Friday night .

"What upsets us more than anything is that the lady who rescued him told

us that Harry was rolled up into a ball like a hedgehog and that he was in no way run over by a car, more like attacked by yobos who use the footpath after a binge drinking night and regularly intimidate other walkers there.

"We often hear the yobos shouting and showing off in the early hours at this footpath."

Harry was found last Saturday near Gippeswyk Park.

The lady who found him took him to the vets and his owner has been told he could have been run over.

But she does not believe he could have pulled himself so far up the path if he had been hit by a car.

She added: "I walked up the alleyway to see if I could see any blood where it happened but it had been raining the night before.

"There was a slab up there so I don't know if they used that.

"Harry being friendly is not used to running away from people as he is only one-year-old."
