A kitten suffered horrifying injuries after evil thugs tied a firework to its body – blowing one leg completely off.

Little seven-month-old Boris went missing on November 5, says owner Lennie Cleary from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, and she didn't find him until the next day.

When she found him the next day he was was covered in blood and his "skin had been ripped apart", so Lennie and her daughter immediately took him to the vets.

The tiny defenceless animal had been so severely injured that Lennie didn’t even realise at first that one of Boris' legs had been "blown away".

Boris' owner was told by the vet that they had found evidence that someone had tied a firework to the little cat, causing the nightmare injuries.

Lennie told CoventryLive: "She told us that he had no front leg – his skin had melted and charred and his leg had been blown away right up to his shoulder.

"She said in her experience someone had tied a rocket or something to him and it had just missed his jugular.

"He has scars from under his ear, down the side of his neck and down the side of his chest. He had 30-plus stitches and he is still with us."

Lennie put a photo showing her cat’s lifer-threatening injuries son her local Facebook group to warn other pet-owners in her home town of Leamington to be on the lookout for irresponsible firework users.

"The vets actually rang me to say 'can you set up a fundraising page or something please as people keep ringing us with donations or to see how Boris is'.

"So my daughter set up the GoFundMe page to try and get a few hundred pounds and now it has over £4,000."

She continued: "Boris has had what he needs from the money and the rest will go towards a good cause to help other animals who are injured in a similar way."

Warwickshire Police opened an investigation into the attack, but a spokesman later told CoventryLive: "The investigation has been filed due to no suspect being identified.

"The investigation will be reopened if new information comes to light."
