SPCA Officials Say Keep A Close Eye On Your Cat As Halloween Approaches

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) – Halloween is just days away, that has animal advocates reminding pet owners to keep a close eye on their cats.  And in Chester County, the warning carries extra weight after a string of animal cruelty cases.

We pass along this warning each year, reminding cat owners to protect those felines — as Halloween approaches. But SPCA officials in Chester County are asking cat owners to keep their animals indoors as officials investigate three separate incidents of animal cruelty.

About a week and a half ago, two cats were found bludgeoned to death in East Pikeland Township.

A cat was killed, apparently shot with an arrow in North Coventry township.

Late last month, four kittens and two adult cats were found mutilated around a woman’s yard near Coatesville (see related story).

All of those investigations continue, and the Chester County SPCA is asking anyone who might have any information to help them out, by calling 610-692-6113, x213.

    How would these cruel monsters like it if WE could do to them what they have done to these poor helpless animals?

    I think that’s a GREAT idea!

    I will never understand how someone could be cruel, abusive to any being. These furry companions of ours feel just as we do, pain, hurt, sadness, depression, anxiety, love, loyalty, happiness, joy and are intelligent. They bring us joy and are our faithful companions. Just goes to show you how despicable human beings are.. I pray for all of those animals who are abused neglected and murdered. This must stop.. get involved if you see it or know of it happening, get in there and save these precious friends of ours. Just grief stricken
