Cops in the UK are still hunting for 'The Woking Cat Rapist' who they say is responsible for the horrific rape and sexual abuse of a nine-month-old tortoiseshell tabby named Minnie that was recently rehomed.

Officials from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) said Minnie's case was one of the worst they had ever seen, according to the Sun.

The abuse she had suffered had left her with horrific injuries to her legs, burns, and wounds full of maggots.

"We have never seen a cat so abused before and it is heartbreaking that this has happened to her," said Liz Wood, the deputy manager at the Millbrook Animal Centre which helped take care of her after she was found abandoned on the streets of Woking.

"It appears she may have been severely abused and she has a number of wounds full of maggots," she continued. "The vets believe these may have originally been burns as she had candle wax all over her tail. She also shows signs of having been sexually abused... It is absolutely awful."

At the time, vets had to fashion a makeshift splint for one of her front legs, and she was not able to stand on her back legs because of suspected soft tissue and nerve damage. But she eventually made a full recovery and found a loving new home with Thea and Simon Mumford in Kent.

Thea was moved when she read Minnie's story on social media and knew immediately that she had to take her in. "When we first met her I thought it would take her a little while to warm to us but straight away she was so playful and loving, her transformation has been astonishing," she revealed.

"She still has moments of being scared so I often let her come to me and she will nuzzle her head under my hand, looking for some affection. I feel in such a privileged position to have been able to help Minnie, you see stories like this and feel sad but it’s not often you are able to make a real difference."

Claire Jones, a cattery supervisor at Millbrook Animal Centre, said she was very happy to know that Minnie had people who cared for her now. 

"She's a tough cookie, and she gradually showed small signs of improvement in the cattery, and in her foster home her legs got stronger and stronger," she said. "It’s wonderful to know she is now in a loving forever home where she can enjoy the rest of her life surrounded by a family who cares for her."
