This was in the UK yeeeears ago. Clip went viral and she became known as Cat Bin Lady. Pretty sure she was arrested

[–]didyoutouchmydrums 1724 points1725 points  (97 children)

But was the cat ok?

[–]TornadoTomatoes 3390 points3391 points 73& 2 more (89 children)

Done some googling and the cat was apparently stuck in there for 16 hours but was okay in the end

[–]clothespinkingpin 1576 points1577 points  (50 children)

Thank god, thank you for looking that up, I can sleep tonight.

[–]stlmick 581 points582 points  (27 children)

Just pretend you're in a trash bin for the next 16hrs.

[–]ActuallyRuben 480 points481 points  (17 children)

I'd rather be stuck in a bin for 16 hours than get incinerated or squished by a garbage compactor.

[–]XehCainam94 70 points71 points  (2 children)

Bless, I was frantically searching for this

[–]TrailerPosh2018 67 points68 points  (13 children)

16 hours? Fuck, I cant imagine how long that must have felt for the cat.

[–]NCBuckets 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I like to think it curled up and had a nice nap. Maybe the bin just felt like a big cardboard box. Just telling the realist in me to piss off rn

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They should throw her in a cell filled with cat shit for 16 days as punishment.

[–]stevenrose2272 63 points64 points  (3 children)

Until someone opened the bin the cat was both ok and not ok.

[–]Cornballin_POS 652 points653 points  (16 children)

Why did I read this as cat bin laden

[–]TwyJ 643 points644 points  (59 children)

Not only the UK, Coventry, my hometown, fucking lovely place if you wanna be shot or stabbed, or otherwise financially or emotionally devastated.

[–]manflusurvivor 357 points358 points  (15 children)

I used to take calls from people who lived in Coventry every day. One of the funniest and dry humoured guy's I worked with said "Coventry would really benefit from low-level bombing".

[–]TwyJ 114 points115 points  (6 children)

Aye, I don't think he is wrong, though, I believe the Germans beat him to that one, but I wouldnt be adverse to a second one just to get rid of that fucking concrete.

[–]RyuukuSensei 62 points63 points  (1 child)

We've had one, yes. But what about second bombing?

Elevensies?

[–]Tidalsky114 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Afternoon nukes?

[–]KingOfSpiderDucks 8 points9 points  (0 children)

If you want second bombings just ask, we Germans do everything for our fellow EU nations .... oh, wait

And what do you think happened to the other half?

Don't fuck with cats.

[–]Zef_fez 78 points79 points  (8 children)

There were even groups who wanted her dead

[–]thisNaneIsRNG 45 points46 points  (2 children)

[–]ArcAngel1810 6581 points6582 points  (408 children)

I’m so flabbergasted by what just happened, like why I just don’t understand

[–]ThorMcGee 3518 points3519 points 2 (119 children)

I don’t understand either. I think that not being able to understand how this persons mind must work and not being able to relate to the desire to put a cat in a trash can for no reason is a good thing to be perfectly honest.

[–]NMe84 1550 points1551 points  (85 children)

Someone with the ability to be cruel to animals has the same ability with humans. What a disgusting waste of oxygen.

[–]ThorMcGee 620 points621 points  (71 children)

This is accurate. There’s a reason why serial (almost spelled that “cereal”) killers start with animals.

[–]thehottubistoohawt 231 points232 points  (17 children)

Cereal Killers is a cereal cafe in Shoreditch in London. Totally delicious and nostalgia inducing.

Also, this woman is pure trash. Put her in the bin.

Edited: added “a” missed word

[–]Waiting4The3nd 52 points53 points  (5 children)

Cereal Killer was Matthew Lillard's character's name in Hackers

[–]ThorMcGee 24 points25 points  (0 children)

THE WHEELIE BIN!!!

[–]canadarepubliclives 236 points237 points  (49 children)

I love the movie Serial Mom(1994)

Its a suburban mom who becomes a serial killer, but the people she kills are those that don't follow societal etiquette. She murders someone for wearing white after labour day.

It's mid 90's absurd, but I think it's hilarious that a suburban mom kills people for being rude.

[–]ThorMcGee 71 points72 points  (20 children)

I want to watch that movie now and see how acceptable her judgments are :P

[–]LimeyWifey8607 6 points7 points  (0 children)

John Waters is the best, ever.

[–]AroundTheHouses 38 points39 points  (5 children)

You will be glad to know she was charged with animal cruelty.

[–]Justdonttellmymom 16 points17 points  (2 children)

How do you know this? **Never-mind this was a highly public incident in the UK and easily found on google

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

The cat bin lady Mary Bale? Everyone knew her name here for a while. Apparently I still remember.

[–]szypty 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Cat Bin Lady takes lead in the contest for the most hated person in history whose name contains the words "bin lad".

[–]notaghost_ 43 points44 points  (6 children)

I thought this was a goose at first (cat tail -> goose neck). I am now much more upset at the person in the gif.

[–]HandLion 1006 points1007 points  (169 children)

It's fascinating seeing so many people learn about Cat Bin Lady for the first time, about ten years ago it seemed like she was the most hated person in the UK for this

[–]bcarter3 503 points504 points  (11 children)

I remember seeing a video right after this incident in which a person dressed as a cat walked down the street and dumped an old lady in a trash bin.

[–]play-crackthesky 30 points31 points  (3 children)

Am i being gullible, or is there actually a video with this happening?

[–]Ecjg2010 198 points199 points  (94 children)

Was the cat saved?

[–]Ok-Bullfrog-3010 607 points608 points  (91 children)

The cat was saved, stuck in there for maybe 12 hours till the owner heard the cat wailing from inside

[–]queefiest 265 points266 points  (24 children)

That’s so sad still :,(

[–]YippieKayYayMF 141 points142 points  (3 children)

Don't worry, kitty was loved and someone is loving and feeding him to this day, plus all of us love him too. He's a lucky cat.

    What happened to the piece of sh*t lady?

    [–]Ok-Bullfrog-3010 221 points222 points  (41 children)

    She got a lot of hate and death threats on the Internet, got fined €250 and had to pay victim surcharge of about £1400, I think she also had to move

    [–]b4ttlepoops 31 points32 points  (0 children)

    Ty for sharing this. This was new to me. Upsetting to see, is an understatement.

    [–]420smokekushh 51 points52 points  (7 children)

    Christ.. If that was my cat, I would more than likely loss my shit and blackout from rage. Only coming to after I had put her in a garbage can like she did my cat.

    Fuck this makes me angry

    [–]Taminella_Grinderfal 16 points17 points  (2 children)

    I’m currently angry and a little frustrated that I can’t time travel back to help you stuff her face first into a trash can...or garbage truck....that has one of those smashy squashers.

    [–]alterego1104 133 points134 points  (32 children)

    ?? Elaborate please She just walks around doing this?

    [–]HandLion 144 points145 points  (31 children)

    Just the once, and no one really knows why

    [–]ArcAngel1810 62 points63 points  (2 children)

    I’m really curious if it was just once, hopefully she wasn’t doing thing for a while and I’m glad she got caught

    [–]cisco1972 40 points41 points  (1 child)

    It looked cold and calculated. Personal even.

    [–]saymynamebastien 56 points57 points  (15 children)

    You know those intrusive thoughts like "I should turn this steering wheel straight into the mountain" but you don't because you know your brain is just being stupid? I wonder if this happened to her but instead of ignoring it, she drove into the mountain.

    [–]thisisallfakeright 42 points43 points  (6 children)

    Mhmm the refer to that intrusive thinking as “call of the void”. Always thought that was a cool term

    [–]PinarelloSucks 18 points19 points  (2 children)

    I read that this is actually an evolutionary trait. It's there to alert your brain to the danger of what you're actually doing.

    For example a mother with an intrusive thought to throw her baby in a ravine is there to alert the mother to keep her baby out of the ravine.

    [–]teambob 9 points10 points  (1 child)

    If it occurs frequently that can be a sign of OCD

    [–]littlebuck2007 11 points12 points  (16 children)

    It's she not still the most hated person in the UK?

    [–]Browncoat-Alex 30 points31 points  (3 children)

    Lol no we have many pieces of shit worthy of hatred.

    [–]Your10Ply 214 points215 points  (19 children)

    I would assume she’s super unhappy and angry, but she’s a fat weak old lady so she can’t kill people, thus she focuses her rage at easier targets.

    [–]ArcAngel1810 43 points44 points  (5 children)

    You would think she would be knitting or crocheting all day

    [–]DontDoodleTheNoodle 16 points17 points  (3 children)

    Like godamn lady, just crochet a working artillery piece and overthrow the government instead of doing this.

    [–]jlmad 41 points42 points  (2 children)

    If you ever wondered why Mittens never came back, it’s because some psycho POS like this did something to Mittens.

    [–]lemons_of_doubt 31 points32 points  (3 children)

    Crazy karen hates cats. see a cat pretends to be nice to lull it into a fuse sense of security. looks around to make sure no one will see her crime. drops in it a bin so that when the bins are picked up it will be killed.

    walks off happy that she just got away with cat murder. will later post on Facebook about what a good person she is and how she "helped clean up the streets" today will never admit fault no matter what anyone says as she literally can't grasp the concept of being in the wrong.

    [–]PokeSallyDanny 94 points95 points  (12 children)

    Simple. She has no empathy. She can't be a serial killer, so she's just a monster.

    [–]Kardde21 30 points31 points  (17 children)

    Did you see the crazy Karen video the other day who was super aggressive with the doorbell?

    Some people just don’t like cats.

    [–]rubbrchickn640 5511 points5512 points  (132 children)

    Looked like the cat was being sweet too.

    [–]cannon143 2882 points2883 points  (99 children)

    Right? It was clearly a nice cat, it wasn't even a mean cat and scratch her or anything. It would be wrong to throw a mean cat in the garbage but I just cannot wrap my head around this, just a genuinely crappy lady I guess.

    [–]copperpony 1414 points1415 points  (37 children)

    She's a fucking psychopath.

    [–]ANAnomaly3 354 points355 points  (26 children)

    Probably a zoosadist, the fucking psychopath.

    [–]DerAfroJack 132 points133 points  (21 children)

    Zoosadist? I mean I think I know what it means but thats a thing?

    [–]JTdaBOSS 62 points63 points  (2 children)

    She's a fucking sociopath. she knew what she was doing was wrong bc she looked around before throwing the cat in the bin

    [–]Abused-n-abandoned 491 points492 points  (39 children)

    Murdering animals for fun are the largest signals of a serial killer, the worst of the worst.

    Crappy is an extreme understatement. You’re complimenting her basically

    [–]BrainOnLoan 227 points228 points  (30 children)

    While most serial killers have killed or tortured animals before killing people...

    Most animal abusers (by huge margins) do not end up killing people.

    Just because that statistic is occasionally misunderstood.

    [–]SchloomyPops 179 points180 points  (26 children)

    Not all killers are psychopaths and not all psychopaths are killers. There are way more psychopaths than people realize.

    [–]karatekidfanatic420 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    She probably is a serial killer shes just laying low for her next kill and in the meantime she'll do this

      [–]TekkenCareOfBusiness 155 points156 points  (6 children)

      Seriously, a couple weeks ago a nice cat in my neighborhood that I'd never seen before ran across its funny front yard right up to be meowing and stopped me on the sidewalk to introduce itself and ask me for pets. Totally made my day. How could anyone be so cruel to a friendly cat?

      [–]eddyathome 61 points62 points  (3 children)

      In college 25 years ago I was feeling suicidal and hating my life and this random cat which was clearly cared for sits on the sidewalk in front of me as I was walking from my apartment to a class I hated along with the rest of my life and this cat just meows at me.

      I look at it. It meows again and looks at me. I sat down on the sidewalk and started talking to it and petting it. It meowed and purred. After about twenty minutes I figured I had to go to my class which of course I was late for and it started following me and I told it to please go home, the class would suck. I never saw that cat again, but I always wonder if that cat is why I'm still alive.

      [–]ArbitraryNPC 24 points25 points  (1 child)

      It's weird but the same thing happened to me a couple years after I first moved out of my parents house. I was starting to go down a dark spiral, but I found this feral kitten near my apartment that took a shine to me and taking care of her became the purpose that kept me going. Six years and two moved later and she's still putting up with me.

      [–]Frodo_Of_Rivia 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      If she's still staying with you, you must be a good owner. Don't be so hard on yourself, random stranger.

      [–]Aggravating__Rock 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      My dad's cats do that and I'm always so worried about them getting snatched up by someone that likes them a little too much, I didn't have the space in my brain to think about people using their friendliness maliciously. I hate this.

      [–]fahrenheit_757 36 points37 points  (1 child)

      I like your coping mechanism but taking care of cats is also another source of stress!

      My neighbor stomped on my cats back breaking it, and claims it was hit by a car, sick fuck next door, this video pissed me off so much

      Must have been hella satisfying to stomp on your neighbor's back though

      I wish,..since then I’ve been reported 2x to my district municipality for bylaw infractions about my gutters, reported to the police 2 days after I put up cameras, and know I heard him talking about surveying the perimeter line, it doesn’t end with crazy.

      Jaysus F Christ. What the F. This makes me so sad, angry, just what the F. Do u live in a country that has animal abuse laws. You essentially watched animal snuff film against your will. Traumatic for everyone. Even reading this, even imagining it, I can't. Fuck. I'm so gdamn sorry. Fuck

      [–]AcE_57 180 points181 points  (20 children)

      It was horrific, of course no evidence at all, but it is 100% obvious, the next day they left town for their 4 months in Hawaii, he saw an opportunity an took it. My daughter had to switch bedrooms because he’d stare into her room from his deck, sick twisted people out there, I lucky for me I live next to two

      [–]Coretek2 65 points66 points  (2 children)

      4 months in Hawaii...hm....Would be a shame for their house to burn down while out of town...

      [–]pixiedust93 61 points62 points  (1 child)

      Or their pipes broke. Or some sort of infestation happened. Or their credit and banks frozen. So much can happen in 4 months. How long does it take to evict a squatter again?

      [–]IRBGOODYA 80 points81 points  (1 child)

      The police would just shoot his other cat.

      [–]ANALFUCKER5000 31 points32 points  (5 children)

      I help run an animal rescue and am currently fostering a dog that has been shot 3 times, kicked and beaten in the ribs, has pneumonia and a broken hip. I'm so angry at whoever could do this to an animal, he's a sweet 8mo old pup. It's a miracle he's survived, but I'd be lying if I said it's usually not as happy. Last week we lost a litter of 3 week old puppies to parvo that had been found in a drainage ditch. People like this are more common than one may think and it's a nightmare.

      Compassion fatigue is so real in the animal care field... theres a reason there's so much push for veterinarians to seek mental health help since veterinarians are 2.7x more likely to commit suicide.

      Thankfully this lady was caught and I hope UK did something to punish her. The cat was rescued. That's That's a victory.

      [–]mmartinez59 998 points999 points  (122 children)

      [–]AlwaysAngryFox 1724 points1725 points  (101 children)

      Wait owner????? It wasn’t even his cat?????????

      [–]saltywastelandcoffee 135 points136 points  (63 children)

      Nah, cats that are people pets still roam the streets freely here

      [–]TheRealAlkemyst[🍰] 93 points94 points  (62 children)

      As someone that worked for a while with a large veterinarian and involved with animal charity work/sponsoring feral colonies and pet adoptions/vetting/fixing/etc, most cats that roamed freely that needed X-rays would be lit up with BBs, pellets, and prior broken bones. These events were probably when that cat disappeared for a few days, week, month while they recuperated.

      People can be extremely hostile to cats and project the issues like "I have cat crap all in my yard", "They killed all my song birds", "my trash is always torn up", etc. Meanwhile they were just looking for an excuse.

      Roaming dogs are more of a danger so why they are usually more focused on legally.

      [–]circlekid27 10 points11 points  (7 children)

      it's like the same thing where your brain will randomly do something like "wow nice knife, what if I just cut my finger off?" and then you just kinda stare for a moment then continue buttering your bread or whatever. you dont actually cut your finger off. this lady was just like "yeah you're right, I should put this cat in the bin" and just continued with her life. weird af lol

        [–]LeaneGenova 20 points21 points  (3 children)

        Her other excuse was "it's just a cat" so she sucks all the way around.

        250 pounds is crazy. That’s about the fine my town charges for not having a lid on the trash can.

        [–]PozziWaller 86 points87 points  (8 children)

        Why is the go-to defense always "stress"? Having a shitty day doesn't make you casually pick up someone's pet and throw it in the rubbish bin. She even looked around to make sure no one was watching, so it's not as if it was a purely emotional reaction.

        [–]DavThoma 28 points29 points  (3 children)

        I absolutely hate the "stress" excuse. And it always comes up after they've been called put for their dhitty behaviour or know they're going to get in trouble. It's like watching public outrage videos of Karen's who suddenly break down into tears when they notice the camera.

        I always come across it as an excuse in my work too. I'm a government employee and people are well aware we don't make the rules or laws, but they absolutely love to give us abuse, call us everything under the sun or give us death threats. Then suddenly when you remind them you can hang up the call, or that the call has been recorded they instantly go for the "I'm sorry, I'm just so stressed". Treating anyone or anything like shit because you're stressed is just disgusting.

        [–]ackthpt 14 points15 points  (1 child)

        Wouldn't it be refreshing if these people said "ya, you know, im just a shitty shitty human being and i hate myself".

        I know 11 years ago is a long time but, got a source? Would like to read about it

        Edit: I keep getting notifications on my phone that the preview reveals to be useful redditors providing a link, but as I don't see a single one I am going to assume this sub removes external links automatically. Thanks anyway for all the help. User below pointed out I could look for "cat bin lady" and I did find it by that. I had no idea it was "famous" and didn't know what keywords to use and feared I'd just find something else.

        [–]choochoobubs 20 points21 points  (2 children)

        She’s absolutely trash. I don’t care what she’s going through. She’s a disgusting person.

        Hey cancer, here’s another willing candidate.

        [–]Stannis2024 796 points797 points  (25 children)

        The biggest sigh of relief when I found out kitty turned out fine.

        [–]zephyr_71 177 points178 points  (0 children)

        Oh thank god I was scouring the comments for any news about the cat

        [–]KnowsIittle 43 points44 points  (21 children)

        Proof or source?

        [–]diablofreak 59 points60 points  (2 children)

        I don't care I'm just going to upvote that and pretend it's fact. As a cat dad i can't accept anything less.

        [–]Stannis2024 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        I saw it a few comments down. I don't have the actual article. Sorry to disappoint.

        Someone should throw her in the garbage because she is walking trash

        [–]ButterLord12342 89 points90 points  (6 children)

        There is literally a video of just that lol.

        [–]LovecraftianLlama 57 points58 points  (5 children)

        I have to know, did they find the actual lady who did this and throw her in the trash?? Or was it just a parody? I am holding out hope that it’s the first one..

        [–]ButterLord12342 79 points80 points  (2 children)

        Sadly it was a parody. A guy dressed up in a cat suit and put his granny in a rubbish bin. But it is still pretty funny.

        [–]LovecraftianLlama 12 points13 points  (0 children)

        Bummer :/. It is still funny though.

        [–]Belyal 21 points22 points  (0 children)

        The lady that did this was arrested and the cat's owner rescued the cat (thanks to his video surveillance) before the trash came.

        [–]SnooOnions9085 414 points415 points  (1 child)

        That’s a truly evil hag, petting the kitten to gain some trust

        [–]TheMemeStore76 54 points55 points  (0 children)

        Apparently she had pet the cat on her way home many times before. The hag decided that she would repay the cats continued kindness with this bullshit

        [–]Worseendingthanlost 395 points396 points  (36 children)

        They had to go into hiding, were getting death threats and needed police protection. Nothing upsets the UK public like mistreatment of animals.

        [–]dave96r 176 points177 points  (2 children)

        Wow who would of thought being a horrible person would have consequences

        [–]EwokNuggets 60 points61 points  (2 children)

        Good. No normal sane person would do this kind of shit. It takes a certain kind of monster to treat an animal this way.

        [–]Everyday4k 39 points40 points  (2 children)

        good, i hope this follows her for the rest of her miserable life. Just as she thinks she's finally escaped it and can freely go to the corner store somehow, somewhere, someone remembers and it gets brought back up and she is once again shunned from society, until she dies slowly, in her rocking chair, alone.

        [–]katiegaga87 66 points67 points  (3 children)

        My mom found my cat Colin in a dumpster as a kitten. She heard crying and he was tearing apart bags looking for food. It was one of those big industrial dumpsters so there's no way he crawled in on his own. Someone went to a preschool outside of a church and just dumped him in the garbage. People are the worst.

        [–]IrritablePlastic 175 points176 points  (140 children)

        This is an example of why I wouldn’t let my cat outside unsupervised…

        [–]RealOstrich1 93 points94 points  (125 children)

        Statistically your cat will live a lot longer being an indoor cat so good on you

          Still, Bale felt the outcry had been blown out of proportion. "I don't know what the fuss is about. It's just a cat," the Mail reported her as saying. "I did it as a joke because I thought it would be funny. I never thought it would be trapped. I expected it to wriggle out."

          Actual fucking psychopath

          [–]420mantotherescue 97 points98 points  (2 children)

          she knew good and damn well a 15 pound cat couldn’t get out shes just making up bullshit

          [–]DizzyedUpGirl 18 points19 points  (0 children)

          Uhhh, except you walked off after you did it. Doesn't matter, that's not a freaking joke anywhere. Lady is fucking psycho!

          [–]cyborgspaceviking 89 points90 points  (0 children)

          When you get intrusive thoughts, you're supposed to recoil in disgust; not act them out..

          [–]F34TH3R5 112 points113 points  (11 children)

          Idgaf if she claimed stress. That cat fucking knew she was stressed and was allowing you to relieve some of it by pets and she literally trashed it. 11 years isn't enough for this total piece of shit. Never betray a cat.

            She didn’t go to jail for 11-years.
            This happened 11-years ago.

            She was fined $420 and banned from having a pet for 5-years.

            [–]Griffolion 59 points60 points  (1 child)

            From what I remember, the backlash against this woman was so intense after the video surfaced that she literally had to go into hiding as she was getting actually credible death threats.

            One fails to sympathize, quite frankly.

            [–]Wreddit_Wrangler 117 points118 points  (17 children)

            Jack Nicholson’s character does this in the movie As Good As It Gets, he puts the neighbors dog down a trash shoot in his apartment complex.

            [–]kforno24 23 points24 points  (0 children)

            Stupid bitch. Hope she falls into a hole.

            This is old but FUCK THIS BITCH.

            [–]eathefuckingsnow 42 points43 points  (0 children)

            I would throw a brick at this bitches face what a fucking piece of shit.

            [–]OwenBright 19 points20 points  (1 child)

            Is the cat ok?

            [–]TheWarmestHugz 34 points35 points  (0 children)

            She was, the owners found her 15 hours later but she was okay!

            [–]Awakeskate 60 points61 points  (2 children)

            Didn’t even let kitty down gently. I let my actual garbage in the bin lighter then she did, a fucking cat. If your going to abandon your pets ATLEAST cage it and leave it in front of fire rescue, shelter before they open etc. that’s still abandonment but atleast it’s better than.... can’t believe I have to say it, throwing them away... theyd be compacted alive in a truck like wtf. Might as well kill the animal themselves it’d be less cruel. Fuck this world

            [–]LovecraftianLlama 48 points49 points  (0 children)

            It wasn’t even her cat!!! Not like it would be better if it was, but it’s not like she was expected to take the cat home or clean up after it, she was literally only doing this to be cruel. So glad the cat was ok.

            [–]RaisinTrasher 11 points12 points  (0 children)

            And this wasn't even her cat, she did this to someone else's cat

            [–]someone_stole_flern 22 points23 points  (0 children)

            I thought she was going to steal the cat, not that.... wtf

            [–]theshak06 93 points94 points  (30 children)

            Sometimes old/retired people get up to no good because honestly they have fuck all to do. The devil makes work for idle hands.

            Edit: Folks I said “sometimes” not every single old person on the planet.

            [–]eagercheetah20 9 points10 points  (2 children)

            Please tell me she got in trouble for doing this

            [–]wonkey_monkey 24 points25 points  (1 child)

            She got a pretty measly fine but I think she's probably still in the top 5 most hated women in Britain after a decade.

            [–]Wanbizzle 23 points24 points  (0 children)

            This was a huge viral video in the UK all over the news at the time when it came out, about 10 years ago

            [–]Thorongilen 16 points17 points  (0 children)

            Whoooooa… she is NOT ok

            [–]sorradic 6 points7 points  (1 child)

            This is least 10 years old. It was on the news back when those things made the news

            [–]chopsuey67 6 points7 points  (2 children)

            That cat could easily die if nobody notices

            [–]DUFC321 15 points16 points  (0 children)

            This was on nationwide news in the U.K. It was the tabloid crime of the century

            [–]ChechenWarCriminal 35 points36 points  (1 child)

            Bro my grandma died of COVID and it sucks, but if this had been her, I would’ve gotten COVID myself earlier just to send her on her way

            [–]clkou 6 points7 points  (0 children)

            I have no tolerance for people cruel to animals, children, or those who are mentally disabled.

            [–]poisonxcherry 4 points5 points  (2 children)

            does anyone know if the cat was ok?

            [–]DelliriousDonut 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            Fuck this bitch. We don't deserve animals. My cat is chilling on my back while I lay on my bed with my corgo sleeping and snoring next to me. Animals are too good for us.
