Cat bites senile woman’s toes off

`An 88-year-old senile woman at a care facility in Saitama Prefecture lost all her right-foot toes after an intruding cat bit them off, facility workers admitted Saturday and offered an apology to the woman’s family. The incident occurred between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

The woman’s roommate heard her moaning and reported to caregivers at around 5 a.m. Thursday. She was taken to a hospital and received treatment for the toe injuries, but all of her right-foot toes were gone up to the first joints. The workers found bloody paw signs at the woman’s bed and on the floor, and caught the cat on Thursday morning, they said.’
