A 4 month old kitten is fighting for its life after it was covered in what is believed to be anti-freeze after a brief spell outside.

The owner of the animal, who lives in Tyne Road in Redcar, let the kitten out of his house at around 10pm on Tuesday 14th October, but when the animal came back indoors it was very obviously unwell and is still receiving treatment for life-threatening poisoning.

A similar incident with another of the owner’s cats happened around five weeks ago where it was apparently caught in a snare and had an acid-like substance poured over its back, resulting in it being scarred for life.

Police are appealing for information on who may be responsible for either or both attacks and would ask anyone who can help to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.  Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
