A woman was arrested, charged and convicted of animal cruelty after putting her cat into a microwave, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.

The woman killed her pet because she thought that it ate her goldfish, a court heard.

Laura Cunliffe, 23, of Hoyland, pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to an animal at the Barnsley Magistrate’s Court as part of a plea bargain agreement with prosecutors.

Cunliffe was free on bail pending sentencing.

According to the police investigation, the cat was in the microwave for about five minutes before being taken out. However, the cat suffered serious injuries and died an hour-and-a-half later.
