As someone who is a lifelong cat lover, I was shocked and angry to have read yesterday about the woman who was caught on CCTV stroking a cat and then throwing it in a wheelie bin. I did think it was bizzare enough to suggest that she was charged but put forward for psychiatric help.
Today's news has added to my concerns, not least that she thought it was "funny" and expected the cat to wiggle free from the bin. How anyone can expect an animal that weighs under a stone and has the full height of less than two feet to escape from a wheelie bin is beyond me, it leaves me even more agahst that she claims to have done it as a spur of the moment joke. Clearly the woman needs help, but equally it is important to let the police, the RSPCA, and the owners concerned to deal with this and for people not to let their sense of outrage consume them.
