What a moron. Hopefully she will be sent to (and remain in) Coventry.

"I thought it would wriggle out". And without looking in the bin, how the hell did she know whether it could actually reach the lid? Stupid bloody woman.

Edit: I notice her mother is claiming that she's a cat lover, yet she's saying she has no feelings about cats one way or the other. :ugh:

Stuff the cat. Silly moo she is, but I'm sparing a thought or two for the Chilean miners. I know who I'd rather rescue from a hole.

Parapunter: Agreed, it's not a big issue in the greater scheme of things. The difference is that mining accidents are usually just that - accidents. Dropping a cat in a bin for ones own amusement is an act of deliberate cruelty.

Cat and dog lover myself, but I think some of the reaction to this has been a bit over the top. Yes, a thoughtless act by a pretty foolish and unpleasant woman, but I understand she has received death threats! 50 hours community service down the local cat and dog rescue centre would seem to be appropriate to me, although the police appear to think that no law has been broken, so I doubt if that will happen.

Someone who furtively looks around to see if anyone is looking, knows that what they are doing is wrong.

It shows a nasty streak that may be indicative of a mental instability and there's a fair chance she's carried out similar acts of animal cruelty. I bet there's a few pet owners in Coventry who are now wondering?

Cheers

Could be that the cat had been messing in her petunias. Based on previous threads in this forum some would have a secret desire to stuff a neighbors errant pussy

Given that she has now received death threats I would have thought the police could push charges of, 'Conduct likely to cause a breach of the peace', or something similar?

ITYM 'devastating'. I used to love parrots [0]and I'd despair when I found them eviscerated by cats, domestic and feral. OTOH, in these urban wastelands in Blighty, they do keep the mice and some of the smaller rats at bay.

It seems to me that the woman who did this isn't the sharpest knife in the block. Although she has been referred to as a banker, it is unlikely that she works in arbitrage or as a bond raiser. She failed to appreciate the consequences of her actions, something which I'm certain no-one else has ever done.

What is unnerving is the procession of Internet tough guys who are pillorying her - the type of mob mentality that will picket a paediatrician's surgery.

"Decimate" comes from the Roman Legions' punishment practice of killing every tenth man. So there.

That was my understanding also, although it seems to be one of those words whose meaning has drifted, cf. 'media' and 'phenomena' as singular nouns. I guess that is the criteria of being a stick-in-the-mud.

Saintsman's rather pithy joke makes me think - Mrs SO disposed of some rather ghastly maggots a few weeks ago from our slop bucket, and that doesn't make her a psychopath (although plenty of other things she does do). She has also deployed glue pads and mousetraps, and deliberately fed fellow mammals anticoagulants.

There's a HUGE difference between what that dopey woman did and what your wife has done. After all, your wife was getting rid of the larvae of a pest and using other methods to get rid of vermin. The dopey one just thought what she was doing would be fun, and the cat would hardly have been described as a "pest" or "vermin" at that moment in time.

With all the news and twitter on this subject I'm inclined to go along my street on garbage bin day and lift the lids on all those pretty colored container bins to let the cats out.

Based on my last visit to my local garbage dump I suspect that an awful lot of cats have been properly binned as hundreds of them are freely roaming around the dump grounds.

I happen to find mice rather cute.

I accept unconditionally that the cat's status as a pet made it more valuable than the anonymous(e) rodents exterminated by my beloved. You are absolutely correct.

The point that I unsuccessfully tried to make is that some people become overwrought about fluffy animals in a way that somehow overrides the consideration one might have for his fellow man. Have a look at some of the insults being thrown at her. 'Mong!' 'Never had a man' 'She looks sixty' 'Throw her in a bin' . And so on.

A woman in a crap life in a crap area (CCTV in your front garden, and it's not Eaton Square). Another day, another useless, fruitless day. I hate you, cat. You're free, you eat, you don't have to work. All I have is this job, day in day out. I'm getting older every day - who'll look after me when I'm old? Take that, cat, there you go, I'm shafting the system. Now I'm in charge. You'll scrabble your way out but for once in my life, I'm in charge. Take that, cat!

What we have seen is not man's inhumanity to cat, or mouse, or maggot (because that's always occurred) - but man's inhumanity to man. Y'see, I'd happily have some people birched, and others given the noose - when the crime is commensurate. I suppose all those Bible lessons I had left a footprint of forgiveness.

It was such a friendly little tabby. It probably thought, "Oh, look at that grotesque creature...I'll be nice to her, cos I don't suppose anyone else has today...or any other day come to that...Aaaaaaaaaaaagh!"

Well, it probably actually said Aaaaaaaaaaaagh! Albeit in a meowie kind of way.


Then there was the man that walked into a pet shop.

"Wasp please."
"Get out of here, we don't sell wasps!!"
"Well, you've got one in the window."
