Miley Cyrus has been mauled by a cat.

The Wrecking Ball hitmaker - who currently has four feline friends, Harlem, Shanti Om Bb, KiKi and LiLo - has been left with painful claw marks across her forehead, horrific bloody scratches along her arms and a gouge out of her head after she came face-to-face with a very angry kitten.

Taking to her Instagram account last night (04.04.16), the 23-year-old singer uploaded photos of her wounds along with the explicit caption: "f****d up by a pussy cat fuuuuuuu**k (sic)."

It's unknown whether it was one of her pet kitties who caused the lacerations or if the animal belonged to someone else.

However, Miley - who also owns several dogs and a pet pig - unlikely took the squabble to heart as she's known for her love of animals and regularly takes to her social networking sites to promote animals rights, including praising veganism, the use of faux fur and encouraging the end of animal testing.

Meanwhile, the soon-to-be Voice USA coach has had a tricky few days as she remembered the two-year anniversary of the death of her beloved pet dog Floyd, who was brutally murdered by a vicious coyote two years ago.
