After shitting all over the bathroom floor, the perverse pussy then ran around the house smashing up antiques and generally being a bit of a nuisance. It even bit Mr Gough so badly that he needed a tetanus shot.

The cat had entered their home after squeezing through an open window, and then dashed under a bed in the spare room. Mr Gough was badly clawed after attempting to get the cat out by easing it out with a broom.

The couple asked the RSPCA for help, but claimed they wouldn’t assist them as the organisation thought the cat might be feral.

Canterbury Cats Protection provided a cage to trap the cat, but in the end a neighbour wearing full motorcycling gear managed to grab the cat, wrap it in a towel and deposit it back outside.

Speaking to Kent Online, the RSPCA said: “The RSPCA is an animal welfare charity and our donors expect us to use our limited resources on animals who are suffering or in distress or danger.”
