Apologies for dumping this here, but no one else around right now who will actually understand why I'm so upset. I just saw my neighbour's dog - a hulking great thing which attacks other dogs that pass the house and is never on a lead - return home from a walk with his elderly owners, and couldn't believe what it was carrying in its mouth. A large, beautiful mackerel tabby, dead. I think - I seriously hope - that the dog being fairly elderly he found it dead, but really. What kind of people let a dog carry a cat home like that? They took it away from him and bagged it and put it in their rubbish bin. I can't bear to think of that poor cat's owners, who are never going to know what became of it. I live over the road from this animal, my garden is fenced to the nth degree to stop my four babies ever getting out of it's enclosure but Jake, my escape artist, periodically finds a new loophole in the system and breaks free. I can't bear to think of him being attacked by that thing, and I wouldn't be responsible for what I'd do if he was. Unfortunately in this country the police don't do a thing about dogs which attack cats.
