Has the notorious ‘Croydon Cat killer’ struck again?
A woman has told how she discovered a headless feline while on her way to work in the City.
Banking officer Anna Wojtowicz, told the Evening Standard, she discovered the pet’s body while walking to Morden Tube station.
It came just hours after another headless cat was found in nearby Coulsdon, sparking fears that the cat killer was at their deadly work again.
The family of the slaughtered cat have been informed of the death of their pet and were said to be ‘devastated’.
As many as 50 cats are thought to have been slaughtered across London and beyond, stretching up as far as Northampton by the killer.
A tally of the cat killings is being kept by animal charity, South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty.

‘I normally walk to the Tube in the morning for exercise and as I turned into Canterbury Road it was just there in the middle of the pavement.
‘The cut was clear, there was no blood around and the head was nowhere to be seen. There was no way an animal was responsible for this,’ Wojtowicz, herself a cat owner, told the Standard.
She also raised fears of what might happen if the killer gets bored with killing cats.
‘It’s distressing to think if I had left my house earlier I could have seen the killer with a knife.
‘It’s just a matter of time before a human is hurt.’
