Mother of two pet banned after neglecting sickly kittens

A mother of two from Birmingham has been banned from keeping animals for 5 years after she failed to get treatment for four sickly kittens.

A woman from Newtown, aged 18, left four kittens out in the cold and one of them got badly sick and had to be put down. The woman had been admitted seven charges of animal cruelty before and had been also sentenced to a two year community order and ordered to pay £260 costs. The cats owners was advised to take the kittens to the vet as there were complaints about the kittens conditions. They were found in early stages of the flu virus including sneezing and runny eyes. After a month, there was another complaint about the animals being abandoned and one of the neihgbours took them home. The kittens were extremely thin, their bone structure could be easily felt, they were lethargic and suffering from fleas and ear mites.
