Police are searching for an cruel animal abuser who tried to cut a cats ears off.
The orange and white animal was brought to the Able Animal Hospital in Parma, Ohio on Friday with both of its ears almost completely sliced off.
Animal rescue workers said the 4-year-old male cats right ear was cut clean through the cartilage and his left ear was barely still attached.
Debbie Bartowick with the Forever Friends Foundation told Fox 8: The injuries are straight cuts to both ears.
It appears like somebody used scissors or shears.
Bartowick said that she has never witnessed such extreme animal abuse, however she did receive multiple mistreated cats from the same area last year.
Authorities said the injured cat was found on a neighbors porch on Clevelands west side Friday morning.
The unnamed neighbor called the Forever Friends Foundation and comforted the cat until rescue workers arrived.
Surgery was performed that afternoon to mitigate the animals pain and prevent infection.
Both ears needed to be amputated, but the cat is reportedly recovering successfully.
