Cat goes for a spin
A man sought revenge on his estranged wife by putting their cat in a tumble dryer. Martyn Birchall, of Chorley, Lancashire, England, was so distraught following the split from his wife of 30 years that he put Rosie - the cat - in the drying machine while his spouse was at work. Evidently, cats do have nine lives as the kitty survived the abuse. Birchall has been convicted of animal cruelty and fined £270 (Dhs1,500), according to The Times paper.
