Man Tries To Drown Pregnant Cat In Banks


A pregnant cat has been saved from being drowned by a man in Banks after a member of the public intervened according to the Woodlands Animal Sanctuary.

Woodlands said:

“Ariel arrived at here at Woodlands on Thursday after being saved from drowning by a brave, concerned member of the public. She was found, being held under the water in a horse drinking bath, on land in Banks.
“The man who was attempting to drown Ariel stated that he was drowning her because she was pregnant!
Fortunately, the member of the public who intervened managed to persuade him to hand the cat over, even though he didn’t do this willingly! Ariel was very cold and distressed after her ordeal but is now safe and warm with us here in the sanctuary”.  

“She has been checked over by the vet who confirms that she is pregnant and has also had some very large mats removed from her coat ,hopefully she is now feeling a bit more comfortable.
Ariel seems a bit happier today and is a lovely,sweet little girl, she is probably less than a year old herself and we can’t begin to imagine how terrifying this experience has been for her. The RSPCA have been made aware of this incident but unfortunately there is not enough evidence for them to pursue this”.  

“Ariel will stay with us and have her kittens in safety, all being well, once her kittens are old enough to leave for their new homes we will also be able to find her a loving, forever home, where she can live her life happily, be treated with kindness and enjoy being a young cat”.
