A woman, Tiffany Guest, 29, has been arrested and jailed by police after she abandoned her dog and two cats when she moved out of her flat in 201, leaving them starve.
Guest locked her cats Reggie and Ronnie and dog Kray in her flat in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, and moved out of the flat without leaving any food for them for 10 days.
The animals became hungry, tearing through the apartment looking for anything to eat.
But after wolfing down the measly scraps of leftovers, skeletal Reggie and Ronnie perished and began to fester slumped on the floor.
And in a horrific bid to survive, Kray was forced to feast on the cats’ bodies after watching them slowly die before his eyes.
When police broke in the house they found out the dog, Kray had eaten the bodies of the cats who starved to death.
Police tracked Tiffany Guest, pictured above, to her place of work blocks away from her forner house but she ran away to Malta so as to avoid jail. Police later re-arrested her in 2018 at the British border when she tried coming back, and on Wednesday a court sentenced her to 16 weeks imprisonment and banned her from keeping animals for 15 years.
The RSPCA released pictures of Kray’s emaciated body and Reggie’s remains. RSPCA Inspector Boris Lasserre said to Metro UK after the case: ‘It is incomprehensible to think the suffering these pets must have endured and how terrified they must have been for such a long period of time before the cats died of starvation.
It must have been terrible for Kray to watch as the cats died in front of him. ‘There was evidence the pets had scavenged to try and feed themselves as the bin contents were all over the kitchen floor.
‘Just 14 days later, by being fed properly in RSPCA care he made an amazing recovery with a significant increase in weight.
‘Warwickshire Police officers did an amazing job in finding Kray, who they renamed Bobby, just in time as he would not have survived much longer. ‘He is a lovely gentle dog and made a remarkable recovery in RSPCA care and has now been re-homed.’
