Our bengal cat was killed by a dog (Hills Road)

Carolynne from Parklands - Marshlands

Our beautiful bengal cat Kevin was Killed by a dog on Sunday 22/8/21, someone had placed him on the side of the road on Monday morning between 6 and 7 am, as we had been searching, so we would think he was hit by a car. We had our vet do a post mortem that morning and he had multiple bites and massive crush injuries to his chest which punctured his lungs. We live at 800 hills road (prestons road end). Kevin was mostly an inside cat, he never ventured far and our home is down a long long drive, he was raised with big dogs and sadly was the kindest gentle cat who loved everyone and didn’t deserve this. It would have to be a big dog as Kevin was a big boy and weighed almost 8kgs. This post is just for information incase your cat goes missing in the area.
