It sounds too strange to be true, but cats in the Southport area are literally having their fur shaved off by a mysterious assailant.
“We do have one key suspect we’d like to talk to.” A spokesperson for Merseyside Police told us this morning.
“The woman, who we can’t name for legal reasons, was involved in a similar incident a few years ago. That time, however, she was targeting a certain spotty breed of dog.”
“We advise all owners to temporarily dye their cats purple or orange, which could make them unsuitable targets for our main suspect.”
