CyberShrink on UK cat shock

The web is abuzz about the woman who dumped a cat in a rubbish bin. Cybershrink asks why someone would do such a thing?

The web is abuzz about the awful woman who callously dumped a cat in a rubbish bin. The young cat, Lola, was only discovered in the bin 15 hours later, when the owner heard its cries. Fortunately, Lola seems fine, and was friendly towards reporters and TV cameramen who approached her for a story.

Interviewed by The Sun newspaper, she said: "I really don't see what everyone is getting so excited about - it's just a cat. I don't know what came over me, but I suddenly thought it would be funny to put it in the wheelie bin, which was right beside me. I did it as a joke because I thought it would be funny. I never thought it would be trapped. I expected it to wriggle free."
