Man’s Pet Cat Survives After Getting Leg Stuck in Rabbit Trap in Rowville!

AUSTRALIA – A curious cat is quite lucky not to have lost its leg after getting it caught in a rabbit trap and then dragging it home.

John Migliore stated that he heard his cat Pepsi crying out in pain in his Clauscen Dve front yard about 8.30am on Sunday, June 5, and was devastated to discover he’d “struggled” home with a 50cm steel trap.

“It sounded like a child crying and I thought, ‘what’s that’,” Mr Migliore explained.

He said Pepsi was absolutely screaming in shock and he panicked before taking the moggy to Boronia’s Animal Medical Centre.

“I couldn’t get (the trap) off and at the vet’s, they had to put him to sleep to get the thing off,” he stated.

He said that five-year-old Pepsi may have a bit of tendon damage, but had escaped more serious injuries and is expected, in the long run, to make a full recovery.
