Pictured: A ruthless and sadistic murderer who can, and will, dribble on your lap while purring
Japanese police investigating the attempted murder of an elderly woman have arrived at a strange suspect. In what is not too much of a surprise for us dog-lovers, it was a stray cat who police believe may have been responsible for the woman’s injuries.
On the day of the attack, 82-year-old Mayuko Matsumoto was found by her daughter with over twenty cuts to her face and body.
“When we found her, blood covered everything above her chin. Her face was soaked in blood. I didn't know what had happened," she told reporters. The 82-year-old woman is now in hospital after receiving emergency care but remains unable to speak. At first glance police were convinced this was the work of a sadistic killer.
But, as police continued their investigation they realised that there was no evidence of an intruder anywhere in the house. No one had forced their way into or out of the house, nor was there evidence that anyone had even attempted entry during the time of the attack. It appears, as of this moment, that no one came into or out of the property to commit the crime.
At least, no one who was a human.
At some point during the investigation one of the officers had their attention drawn to a gathering of stray cats outside Mayuka Matsumoto’s window. A closer look soon revealed that one of the cats had what appeared to be blood on their claws.
Police are currently testing the fluid to see if it is human blood but as of today have refused to make any further comment on the outcome of those tests. Personally, we have absolutely no problem believing that these cats ruthlessly murdered the old woman. And to add even more fuel to the fire, we suspect they did so while discussing tweety birds in a voice with a menacing lisp.
But what do you think? Are the cats innocent? Have they been erroneously fingered for this crime? Or did they do it and were justly caught by the claws of justice? Let us know in the comments below!
