We hate having to repost stories like this, but cat owners need to know that there are some very vicious people out there.

This story is not as unusual as we might like to think. People use illegal gin traps to maim or kill roaming kittens, even in an upmarket suburb of New Zealand’s biggest city.

To keep your cat safe from dogs, other cats, and the occasional depraved human, please consider keeping your cat on your own property.
