A beloved local cat has been brutally stabbed to death in a North London cul-de-sac, with police dropping the case unsolved.
Bobby, a tabby cat, was found by neighbours on Nile Drive, Enfield, with stab injuries, and they also believe he was stamped on.
According to the locals who new him, the poor creature was ‘really friendly’ and would ‘approach anyone at all, even strangers’.
He was found dead on Saturday, May 8 at around 9.30pm.
Police were informed on May 10 but have closed the case ‘pending any investigative opportunities’.
No arrests have been made.
He was beloved by those who lived in the small cul-de-sac who all took care of him, feeding him and taking turns putting him up for the night.
Saira, who lives on Nile Drive, told My London: “Bobby was a very friendly cat and would approach anyone at all, even strangers, even large groups of people, he was that friendly.
“He had so much love to give everyone and was always there when leaving the house and upon arrival.”
She continued: “He would always purr loudly and rub against our legs almost tripping us over always. He depended on us for food and mainly loved our company as as soon as any of us opened the door he would come running to see us.
“He would also sit on the bonnet of our car and watch us in our living room through the window. He was a big part of our lives and he is missed dearly by all of us.”
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were contacted on Monday May 10 with a report that a cat had been found deceased with knife injuries at around 9.30pm on Saturday May 8 in Nile Drive, Enfield.
“There have been no arrests.
“The case has been closed pending any investigative opportunities.”
