Walter Mitty character pretending to do cat spaying under fake TNR program?
This is the rather peculiar case. When I first read the headline it looked like something was wrong. The article on the website of the Cheshire Standard starts off with these words:
“Cheshire police are appealing for information after two cats returned to their home with shaved fur and damage to an ear.”
We are told that patches of fur had been shaved from parts of their bodies and one of the cats had the top of her right ear cut off. Now, I don’t know what is going on but the description indicates that somebody has been reading about TNR programs and the spaying of female cats within those programs and taking it upon himself to try it out without actually doing the spaying operation. Although, he or she did cut the top of one of the cat’s ears. This is the indicator that a cat had been spayed or neutered in a TNR program.
The reason why I believe that the cats were not actually operated on is because nobody has reported upon it. It would have been quite clear if they had undergone the operation because they would have been a big scar. Therefore this looks like a simple case of fur being shaved off and we don’t know exactly where but if it’s the belly then that would indicate that the person is pretending to do a spaying operation. It took place on 3rd Nov near Knutsford.
I know my suggestion is far fetched but some people – quite a lot actually – do live Walter Mitty lives. They are not quite on the planet. The description of the ‘injuries’ are unerringly like those of spayed feral cats under a TNR program. Of course I could be miles off track. However, the ‘injuries’ are mild. This is not the deranged cat abuse of the usual culprit. It is these factors which lead me to believe in my suggestion.
