Two points stand out from this story on the BBC. Firstly that microwaving a cat to death is to cause it unnecessary suffering. I say it might do more than that. Secondly, the guilty woman’s denial is really something to behold. According to her, not only did other cats force the kitten into the microwave but they also shut the door and then presumably turned it on. Who said cats are dumb eh?
A woman who microwaved a 10-week-old kitten to death has been found guilty of causing it unnecessary suffering.
The kitten’s owner Sarah Knutton told Torquay Magistrates’ Court she heard a sound then a “horrendous screech”.
Gina Robins, 31, of Salisbury Avenue, Torquay, had denied the charge, claiming the kitten had been shut in the microwave oven by other cats.
