Necropsy results for two cats found dead this month show both were killed by other animals, according to Thurston County Animal Services Officer Erika Johnson.
The cats were found Aug. 7 in Lacey and Aug. 14 in Olympia. Both deaths were investigated as suspicious and the bodies were sent away for post-mortem examinations to determine how they died.
Last year, more than a dozen mutilated cats were found across Thurston County, sparking fears of a serial cat killer. Investigators later determined at least five were killed by other animals.
Johnson said no other suspicious cat deaths have been reported recently.
