Owner devastated by horrific death of pet

The owner of a pet cat strangled to death with gaffer tape say they're devastated by the death.

Jennifer Pettit, 46, said she and her daughter had been left devastated by the death of the five-year-old cat.

You worry when you let your cat out that it might go missing or be hit by a car.

"But what's happened is unimaginable - it would never have occurred to me that somebody would deliberately do this to an innocent animal.

My cat was categorically murdered. He was strangled to death and his throat cut open.

I've no idea why anybody would do this to him or to us but the worry is, if they've done it once, they'll do it again so it's important that they are caught."
