Police probe killing of cat in washing machine

Unbelievable how cruel some people can be.:sad:

Police probe killing of cat in washing machine

OTTAWA (AFP) - Police are investigating the laundering of a cat to death by college students last weekend in Canada's capital, authorities said Wednesday.

The three-month old orange and white tabby had allegedly been run through a washing machine by friends of its owners' roommates during a party, while she was out, according to reports.

"It had gone through a full cycle," distraught owner Sylvia Gough told the Ottawa Citizen.

She said she adopted the cat in November and named it Thor because she figured the tiny kitten that fit in her hand needed a big name.

Constable Isabelle Lemieux of the Ottawa Police Service told AFP: "We're investigating cruelty to animals."
