A drunken cat-sitter stabbed a tabby cat called Toby nine times with a kitchen knife while he was supposed to have been looking after him for his mother. The man phoned police to say he’d stabbed the cat, he needed a vet and that he’d drunk 15 pints. A five inch steak knife was found in the sink which was covered with blood which the man said he had used when he attacked the cat. The vets gave the cat pain relievers, once he was asleep his fur was clipped revealing multiple wounds on both his left and right side. Several further stab wounds were found leading the vet to believe the cat had been held down while he was subjected to a sustained and vicious attack. The 43-year-old unemployed man pleaded guilt to causing unnecessary suffering to the cat.
