Happy ending for Huntingdon tumble dryer cat

THE cruel pet owner who filmed himself putting his cat in a tumble dryer took it to Wood Green after its harrowing ordeal.

Princess’s nightmare made national headlines after The Hunts Post broke the story last week.

We reported how a horrified member of a web forum for radio-controlled car enthusiasts contacted The Hunts Post with the shocking footage, which was passed on to the RSPCA.

Thankfully, there has been a happy ending for the tortured tabby.

Staff at Wood Green have renamed her Fiesta and she has already been reserved by a family desperate to give her a loving home where she will be cared for and properly looked after.

Manager of cat welfare at Wood Green, Juliette Jones, said: “Fiesta, as she has been renamed by staff, was brought to Wood Green as a stray by a gentleman one night last week. She is a little shy and wary of people she first meets but has a sweet, quiet nature and once you gain her trust she is very loving.

“We are delighted to say that she has been reserved and will be going to live with a new family soon.”
