A man who killed his pet cat by drowning her in a bucket of water has been fined and sentenced to a community order.
David Streeter took the pet into his garden in Crawley in West Sussex, and held her under water rather than taking her to the vet when she fell ill.
There is no doubt this poor tabby's sad last days were full of pain and discomfort. Firstly, she was left to suffer in a poorly state without any veterinary treatment for at least three weeks. Then, rather than take the cat to a vet where she may have received treatment to resolve her health issues, her owner took the decision to kill her in a completely inhumane way. Being held under the water like this is a horrible way for an animal to die. There is absolutely no excuse for such callous treatment of an animal he was responsible for.

Zaire the gorilla, who turned 40 yesterday, was treated to a birthday cake made by Great British Bake Off runner-up Richard Burr.
The birthday girl looked like she was enjoying the treat in her enclosure at London Zoo.
The 2014 contestant, who won the 'star baker' title five times on the show, said it was a "tough challenge baking a cake for a gorilla".
"It's got grated carrot and parsnips, all sorts of things Zaire likes. I think i've managed to fit her daily diet into this cake," he said.
