AN eldery cat died in agony days after a sick animal torturer sprayed her with waterproof paint. Miggeli, 13, was targeted by a twisted thug who is believed to have carried out attacks on several cats in north-western Switzerland. Miggeli, 13, was targeted by a twisted thug who is believed to have carried out attacks on several cats in north-western Switzerland Sina desperately tried to save her beloved pet but she died three days after the attack The feline was covered in yellow paint when she returned home on Saturday night. Owner Sina Kunz said: “Her entire body and especially her face were sprayed with waterproof yellow paint.” Sina desperately tried to save her beloved pet but she died three days after the attack. She is convinced the cat torturer has been operating in the area and targeted other felines. The other incidents that have been reported to cops include an attack on a six-year-old cat called Haxli who had most of her fur shaved, and her claws and whiskers cut off. A vet who examined her said the fur appeared to have been cut off with scissors and then shaved with some form of razor. Last Sunday there was a second attack involving a one-year-old male cat called Gringo, who had also been shaved. But in his case his jaw had also been broken, along with his front legs.

The vet told Swiss media: “A normal person would not do something like that. I think whoever did this really needs some serious help.” A police spokesman said they were investigating all three incidents although they noted that the paint attack had happened some seven kilometres away from where the two cats had been shaved.
