The ginger male cat was found in the early hours of Thursday in the Romford area with his mouth and nose partly obstructed by the tape.

Oliver Duprey, a vet at Medivet Southend where the cat is being looked after, said: “He was very stressed and it was clearly a malicious thing, the night vet said there was no way it was accidental - it was clearly a malicious attempt.

“It was not completely obstructing the respiration but it was making it difficult to breathe.

“The cat’s very very nice so he was given some pain relief and sedative to calm him down. He was pretty easy.

“If he hadn’t been found by the people that brought him in we don’t know what would have happened, it was a nasty one.

“The cat’s very well here He’s completely clinically normal now, we’d like to reunite him with his owner.”

The cat has been neutered, is litter trained and very friendly with people.
