Mum's terror after finding mutilated cat
A LLANELLI mum who woke to see a beheaded cat pushed through her letterbox has appealed for help in finding its killers.
Kristie Carrington, 38, who lives in Als Street, said she was now too scared to be in her own home after witnessing the horrific sight on Thursday morning.
Ms Carrington — who lives with her partner Darius, 38, daughter Madison, 2, and son DJ, 11 months — said: "I came down to banging and knocking at the door. I thought it was somebody random. Luckily I didn't take my kids.
"All I could see was the cat's paws through my letterbox and noticed the smell.
"I saw the outline of a policewoman through the door telling me not to panic. I was thinking 'there's a dead cat in my door'.
"The police came and took photographs and asked 'Have you had any arguments? Is there anyone you think might do this?' I said 'Not in a million years'.
"There was a lot of blood, there was blood all up the door and the glass."
Ms Carrington can think of no reason why her home was targeted.
"I would like to think it's just a random attack," she said. "It's disgusting, it's vile. I don't think someone would go to that extreme if it's random.
"Now I'm genuinely too scared to be in my own house. I'm absolutely terrified.
"I don't want my kids in that house. I don't feel safe here."
She said she was relieved her children did not see the animal.
"My daughter Madison would have pulled at the legs saying 'look mummy, cat'," said the mum-of-two.
"My partner feels useless. Even though he's a man, he's probably a wreck himself.
"If they are capable of killing, mutilating and beheading a cat what else are they capable of?"
"I pray someone might have seen something, no matter how silly they think it is — a car, a lad, a girl, somebody on a bike," said Ms Carrington.
Police confirmed they were investigating the incident.
Sergeant Justin Evans said: "Anyone with information which could assist our inquiries should contact officers at Llanelli police."
