Lyn said: ‘We were just about to send a search party for her when we saw a silhouette at the front door. We opened it up and that’s when she was sat there looking rather sorry for herself. ‘
When they got the cat inside Lyn wrapped Georgie in a towel and rushed her straight to the vet.

Lyn and her family still don’t know who attacked their cat or why anyone would want to.
She continued: ‘It’s still a question I can’t answer really. At the time we were asking why on earth, who on earth would do this? I still can’t answer that question and it’s just beyond me.
‘She’s just an innocent cat going about her day-to-day business, and obviously someone’s taken a dislike to her and hurt her in the most horrific way. I really don’t know.’
Georgie, who was awarded a National Cat Award for bravery, is slowly going back to her old self again.
The segment left Loose Women viewers in tears, with many asking: ‘How could anyone do this?’
Lyn said: ‘She’s a little bit more grumpy and a little less tolerant, which is understandable really. Otherwise she’s out catching mice, living life as a cat.’
The segment left Loose Women viewers in tears, with many wondering who could do such a thing to an innocent pet.
