She was taken to the vet for treatment by the owner’s neighbour and is now recovering from her injuries at home.

The vet described the injury as being “clean cut” and now both police and the animal welfare charity are urging people to provide more information.

RSPCA inspector Jason Finch said: “This was a shocking attack on a beloved family pet. At the moment we have very little information as to who did this, so the police and I are urging anybody who may know something, to get in touch.

“It’s completely horrific to carry out such a nasty act of cruelty on this poor cat.”

Anyone with information should call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018, or Suffolk police on 101 quoting crime reference 16751/17.
