Neo the seven-month-old kitten was found beheaded in Brackley last week.

In a post on Facebook book, the bereaved owner wrote: "This is probably the most heartbreaking post I’ve ever had to write but last night my kitten Neo was killed up the Tree Estate, Brackley.

"He had his head cut off by someone. He was only seven-months-old and didn’t deserve such an awful fate. I am completely broken right now."

Now, animal-cruelty charity PETA is offering up to £2,000 for information that leads to the conviction of whoever is responsible.

PETA Director Elisa Allen said: "It's imperative that any community faced with cruel and callous acts such as this take measures to find the culprit and bring him or her to justice.

"Animal abusers are a danger to everyone – they take their issues out on whomever is available to them, humans or other animals – and must be caught before they act again."

It comes after the Northampton Cat Killer Brendan Gaughan was jailed in 2018 for a spree of killings where he mutilated at least seven cats across the town.

Anyone with information about the case is urged to call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
