Arrest over mutilated cat pushed into house
POLICE have arrested a man in connection with an incident in which a headless cat's body was put through a Llanelli mum's letterbox.
A police spokeswoman confirmed a 22-year-old man had been arrested in connection with the incident, which happened last month.
She said he had been bailed by the force pending further inquiries.
Mum-of-two Kristie Carrington was horrified when she came downstairs one morning to find the body of the decapitated animal hanging through the letterbox of her home in Als Street.

Ms Carrington, 38, said she had been a "wreck" following the horrendous incident — which happened while she was at home with her partner Darius, 38, and two children Madison, 2, and DJ, 11 months.
Last week, she criticised police after claiming she had not even received a phone call from police in the weeks following the incident. But after the arrest, Ms Carrington said: "I am very pleased they have arrested someone in connection with this.
"I understand they need time to do their inquiries, so yes I am happier with them.
"I just hope they get the evidence they need to charge someone in relation to this awful, unprovoked, evil attack on not only my family but the poor cat and the people who loved that cat."
She said she had still not recovered from the unnerving ordeal on September 21.
"I am very wary when I am out now as I don't know who it is," she said.
"And I am still a bit nervous in my own home, still not sleeping. I just hope nothing else happens."
A police spokeswoman said a man was arrested on suspicion of a public order section 4 offence which was one of causing fear, alarm or distress.
Anyone with information on the incident which could assist officers can contact Dyfed-Powys Police on 101.
