POLICE are appealing for witnesses after two dogs mauled a pet cat in Lancaster.
The cat – a 15-year-old tortoiseshell named Tabby – has been missing since the attack on the Vale estate two weeks ago.
Owner Gillian Atkinson had just gone to bed on June 6 when she heard her cat being attacked outside her home in Shakespeare Road.
She had seen two men walking the dogs, believed to be bull terriers, earlier in the evening.
“We live in a bungalow and the bedroom window is where Tabby used to sit,” she said.
“At about 12.45am I heard her climb up the fence and then I heard a massive bang.”
