Her plight has been reported to the RSPCA, who are now looking into how she got into this condition.

Liz Wood, deputy manager at RSPCA’s Millbrook Animal Centre, in Woking, said: ‘It appears she may have been severely abused and she has a number of wounds full of maggots.

‘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.

‘Minnie also had a makeshift splint on one of her front legs and is currently not able to stand on her back legs so we think she has some soft tissue and nerve damage as her x-rays are clear of any fractures.

‘She isn’t out of the clear yet but we are hoping she will make a recovery as she is very bright and a little fighter.

‘We have never seen a cat so abused before and it is heartbreaking that this has happened to her.’
