Spate of Cat Poisoning Investigated in Quiet Town


Pet owners are being advised to remain vigilant following suspected cat poisonings in Eyemouth, near the border between Scotland and England.Animal welfare group the Society for the Preventation of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) are investigating the suspicious deaths of two cats, which were discovered near their homes on the 17th and 18th of May.The cats had no visible injuries but were found with dried yellow foam around their mouths.Inspector Stephanie McCrosan told the BBC:

The poisoning of domestic animals is a huge issue and we deal with a large number of complaints regarding poisonings. Poisoning an animal will cause a considerable amount of suffering and, in the majority of cases, a slow and painful death. Without any other evidence we cannot say whether these poisonings were deliberate or accidental, so we are appealing to local residents to contact us if they have any information in relation to these concerning incidents.

Post-mortems are now being carried out to establish the exact cause of death.
