Laura CunliffeHoyland, England — A 23-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to charges of animal cruelty after nuking her kitten in a microwave for 5 minutes because the critter attacked her pet goldfish.

Officials claim an angered Laura Cunliffe tossed the four-month-old Mowgli in the microwave after the kitten attacked the fish, and set it to cook. She apparently misjudged the time needed to fully cook a kitty — poor Mowgli was still alive when she pulled her out.

“The kitten was in a distressed state when Miss Cunliffe took it out of the oven. She took the animals to a relative’s home,” said Brian Orsborn, prosecuter for the RSPCA. “The kitten could not get its breath and died about ninety minutes later. Miss Cunliffe made arrangements for the body of the kitten to be taken away to be buried.”

“In the 13 years I have been in the job I have never dealt with a case like this before,” said Lynsey Harris, RSPCA deputy chief inspector. “It is particularly horrendous because of the period of suffering for the kitten which would have been awful.”

Cunliffe, who’d had the kitten since it was just a few weeks old, admitted to zapping it. She will be sentenced next month on a charge of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

Cunliffe’s attorney claims she suffers from psychosis and depression and has been sectioned under mental health legislation several times.

Oh, and no word on whatever became of the poor goldfish.
