An out-of-control ginger tom cat has been given an "animal Asbo" after causing havoc in a neighbourhood in Rotherham.
Four-year-old Rocky received the penalty after residents complained he was biting people, damaging property, fighting with other cats and entering people’s homes and refusing to leave.
The letter, issued by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, read:
Rocky's owner Samantha Davies, 35, defended her pet, saying: "How can a cat behave antisocially? It’s an animal, it’s a pet - he’s not going to bite your leg off, drink alcohol in the street or try and rob your phone."
"It’s just like an animal Asbo, and it is completely ridiculous," she added.
