One villager, who the injured cat's owner does not even know, has put up a £20 reward for information on the attack.
Meanwhile the cat is making steady progress although remains unable to climb because its claws have yet to fully grow back.
“He is better in himself and is gradually resuming his normal routine,” the cat owner said.
“He is OK with the people he knows and I'm just glad that he is getting back to his normal life,” she added.
