Investigation Into Kitten’s Death

RSPCA Inspector Alison Edwards is investigating to try and find out what happened to Smidge.


She said: “Sadly Smidge’s injuries were quite severe with a fractured skull, broken jaw, severely damaged eye and scuffed claws. At this stage we do not know what happened to her and we are appealing for anyone in the local area who may have any information to get in touch.


“This could have been a tragic accident or it could have been something more and we are very keen to clarify the details.”


The incident is being jointly investigated by the animal welfare charity and the police. Anyone with information which could help the investigation is urged to contact the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.


Smidge’s owner Chelsea Ionadi, her husband Marco and her three children have been left devastated by the loss of their cat who had become such a huge part of the family.


Chelsea said: “We were out on Saturday bowling with the kids when I received a call from my neighbour to say they had found Smidge dead by my front door and there was blood everywhere.


“More than anything my children are absolutely devastated, as are me and my husband. She was a massive part of the family and always followed us around everywhere. My daughter could call her and she would literally come running and purring towards her. She slept on her bed every night and now there is just this empty space.”


The family also have a four-year-old cat called Tigger and the pair had a fantastic bond.


Chelsea added: “She was so beautiful and loving. It won’t be the same without her. She was well loved during her little life.”


The mum of three explained that the family now want to get some answers as to how Smidge sustained such terrible injuries.
