Pet cats shot just weeks apart
ADEVASTATED pet owner is appealing for information after two of her cats were shot just weeks apart.
Cheryl Williams, of Rosewood Crescent, Chadderton, was heartbroken when tortoiseshell Misha came home with pellets embedded in her lip and side.
But while the cat was recovering from surgery her mum, 21-month-old Tia, faced a similar attack.
Tia’s injuries were so severe her leg was completely shattered and had to be amputated.
Cheryl, 44, who also owns two-year-old Tabatha, said: “I’m disgusted at what’s going on. It’s crazy to think that someone is out there attacking innocent animals.
“There are people walking around out there with pellet guns and getting away with it.
“For this to happen in such a short space of time is really distressing.
“I don’t know if it’s kids or teenagers but I can’t understand why anyone would do that. Going out shooting animals is just a game to them.
“It’s not just the stress and anxiety for the cats but I’ve had to spend a lot of money paying for treatment. I’ve had Tia since she was seven weeks old and Misha since birth and they mean everything to me.
“I have no other family and live on my own but if you hurt my cats you hurt me as well.”
Tia’s attack comes a day after an eight-month-old Kitten was shot in neighbouring Denton and three weeks after another cat was shot near his home in Hyde.
Cheryl has reported both incidents, which took place on July 27 and Sep-
