The Metropolitan Police says it fears a prolific cat killer, suspected of hundreds of mutilations and killings, could escalate their crimes to attacking vulnerable women and girls.

There have been more than 360 deaths of cats, foxes and rabbits in Greater London since September 2015 and in most cases the animals have had their heads and limbs removed, before the body parts are returned to their owners or the local area.

Although there is no direct evidence of a risk to human life, Detective Sergeant Andy Collin says the fear is the killing could escalate.

"There is a known link between serial killers and harming animals when you look into their dark history," he said.

Criminal psychologist David Holmes said the ‘Croydon cat killer ’ — who is yet to be identified or caught — was a sadist who “enjoys” the act of murder and could soon escalate their violence, according to The Standard.

There have been two sightings of a possible suspect and a description was issued of a white man in his 40s with short brown hair and possible facial scarring.

But it's not known whether it's one person behind the killings or a gang.

"Obviously a psychopath and they've obviously got sociopathic tendencies... a very dangerous person," Tony said.

Anne from Surrey lost one of her cats to the killer this summer.

Amber was found in a neighbour's garden. She found out after receiving a call from SNARL.

"I still cry about it on a regular basis. I worry about what he's doing to other cats every night - is he doing it tonight?" said Anne.

"It plays on my mind. I think about what else he could be capable of if it wasn't just cats. We've got CCTV around the house now and are putting in floodlights to light up the gardens. I don't feel safe.

"I could go to prison for him. I hate him that much. I'll never forgive him. Ever."

Animal charities PETA and Outpaced are offering a combined reward of £10,000 for any information which leads to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the killings.

Forensic experts at ArroGen Veterinary Forensics in Surrey are helping examine some of the corpses in the hope of finding fresh evidence.
