Grieving for a pet cat
Heartless rocker Pete Doherty visited the cat owner whose pet was killed by his dogs and asked: "It was still twitching - did you not take it to the vet?" The Libertines frontman also invited grieving Penny Ward, 70, to meet his two huskies to "see how lovely they are". But the 39-year-old singer didn't even apologise for the off-lead Siberian hunting dogs savaging eight-year-old tabby Archie to death on the sea front at Margate, Kent, a week ago. And he revealed he had placed his own two cats in a shelter to prevent the powerful hounds attacking them. Notorious druggie Doherty - former fiance of supermodel Kate Moss - went to see Penny at her basement flat only after The Sun revealed the 10-minute attack. Kieron Woodward, 27, who tried to stop the dogs, said Archie was still indeed moving but could only open and close its mouth before it passed away.

Gail Walker: My memories of Shankill bomb are of a sunny day, but for those left behind has it shone since? BelfastTelegraph.co.uk Whenever someone mentions the Shankill bomb, my first thought is of sunshine. Incongruous, I know, but that Saturday was one of those late October days gifted with warm, bright weather, a clear blue sky. The sort of autumn day that seems to have been stolen from summer.

Recently, my wife and I went through one of the more excruciating experiences of our lives – the euthanasia of our beloved dog, Murphy. I remember making eye contact with Murphy moments before she took her last breath – she flashed me a look that was an endearing blend of confusion and the reassurance that everyone was OK because we were both by her side. When people who have never had a dog see their dog-owning friends mourn the loss of a pet, they probably think it’s all a bit of an overreaction; after all, it’s “just a dog.” However, those who have loved a dog know the truth: Your own pet is never “just a dog.”RELATED READ: They train rescue dogs as police K-9 officersMany times, I’ve had friends guiltily confide to me that they grieved more over the loss of a dog than over the loss of friends or relatives. Research has confirmed that for most people, the loss of a dog is, in almost every way, comparable to the loss of a … [Read more...] about Why losing a dog can be harder than losing a relative or friend
OUTRAGED pet owners blasted the Metropolitan Police's conclusion today that the "Croydon cat killer" is a myth. A three-year, £500,000 Scotland Yard hunt for the perpetrator of 500 cat killings called Operation Tahake was closed when experts concluded cars hit the animals and foxes mutilated their remains. But grieving cat owners have slammed the Met's insistence that “there is no evidence of human involvement” in the killings, with campaigners claiming that the Tahake inquiry had been binned to save cash. Mum-of-two Samantha glass shared a tribute to her cat Harley after she branded the closing of the investigation "unbelievable". She wrote: "The person who did this is still out there. Still hurting other cats and torturing other families. "So much pain and suffering. It makes me so angry. "And to the sick and twisted individual who did this, we are coming for you." Neenie Sadler, whose cat was also killed, said: “This is all because the Met don’t … [Read more...] about ‘Croydon Cat Killer’ victims’ owners outraged after cops say pet killer is a myth
