woman escapes jail after killing cat in washing machine

posted 1 decade 7 years ago
LONDON (Reuters) - A woman who killed her boyfriend's cat by putting it in a washing machine after an argument was given a four-month suspended prison sentence on Monday.

Diane Hannon, from Old Colwyn, in north Wales, was looking after the white fluffy cat called Paws last summer while her friend Duncan Carthy was away.

She put the six-year-old cat, which was deaf, into the washing machine before switching it on. Paws died from a heart attack and suffered loss of hair and scalding.

RSPCA Inspector Kevin Paton, said in a statement: "This is the worst act of deliberate cruelty I have ever seen."

Hannon, who suffered from depression, told Llandudno Magistrates' Court that she and Carthy had argued before he went away, causing her to feel wounded and angry.

Hannon, who admitted last December to causing unnecessary suffering to the animal, was banned from owning animals for life.

Shocked I cann't express how angry that story has made me. What kind of sicko can do that to a defenceless animal and not feel any remorse? It's the behaviour of a total psycopath!

Reminds me of a story I read in my local paper a couple of years ago about some kids who'd burried a cat in the sand on Lowestoft beach so that only it's head was sticking out, then they'd kicked it in the head to death. When I read that I burst into tears, it just makes me so angry that any human being can be that evil.

And all she gets is four month's suspended sentence - bet she's really gutted about that!!
