Police are looking for the person who is responsible for killing at least five cats by feeding them antifreeze, according to a statement released by the RSPCA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) of the United Kingdom.

The RSPCA is appealing for information after five cats living in the same area in Leicestershire, died from antifreeze poisoning in the space of two weeks.

Tests confirmed that all five of the cats who lived on or near Victor Avenue, had ingested the toxic substance.

The most recent incident involved 7-month-old Meereen.

The cat died on Monday.

Its owner, Adria Pearce, said: “We are all absolutely devastated and I haven’t been able to stop crying since she died.

“Meereen came home on Friday evening, and curled up on the sofa next to me. She seemed to be shivering a little, but I didn’t think anything was out of the ordinary until the next morning, when I couldn’t find her.

“I was out in the street shouting her name. I found her behind the sofa, where she was foaming from the mouth and trying to be sick.

“I knew something was desperately wrong so I took her straight to the vets. Tests confirmed that she had ingested antifreeze. I hoped she would be able to be saved, but sadly, she passed away three days later.”

Three other cats in the area also died from antifreeze poisoning in the last seven days, while another cat died after ingesting the toxic substance two weeks ago.

RSPCA inspector Andy Bostock, who is investigating, said: “We are very concerned that five cats in the same area have died from antifreeze poisoning. At the moment, we would advise everyone in the area to keep an eye on their cats’ well-being and if they are showing symptoms of poisoning get them veterinary treatment immediately.”

So far, no arrests have been made.

Will X Walters
By: Wayne Morin

A man committed suicide after he was overwhelmed with grief when he lost his lawsuit against police in California.

35-year-old Will X Walters was found dead just days after losing his five year long battle with San Diego police.

Walters was arrested in 2011, for wearing his custom-made gladiator outfit, which cost $1,000, at a gay pride event in Balboa Park.

Walters claimed that he was covered up properly, and that he was wearing a Calvin Klein thong underneath the costume.

However, police officers asked him to cover up, saying that when he was walking, his backside was being exposed.

After Walters refused to change, officers gave him a citation for public nudity. When Walters refused to sign the citation, he was arrested.

Walters sued the police department for discrimination, saying that he was not nude as his buttocks and genitalia were fully covered, but he lost that case.

Walters said that he was having a hard time getting a job due to his arrest.

Walters then filed a lawsuit against police for violating his civil rights when they discriminated against him due to his sexual orientation.

“Will Walters is a Hispanic, gay man, who is the only person in the history of the City of San Diego to be arrested and booked on a charge of public nudity,” his complaint stated.

However, after fighting the case for five years and spending $1 million on his legal fees, Walters lost his case. A few days later, police found him dead in his apartment.

Quick And Easy Tips To Lower Your Monthly Bills

Monthly budget (illustration)
By: Michelle Parker

When we keep our monthly bills low, we can work less and have more time to be home and actually enjoy the things we pay for.

Here are some tips to lower your monthly bills.

First, make a list of all your expenses, such as mortgage or rent, utilities, phone, food and clothing.

This will give you an overall idea of your spending.

For an entire month, write down every penny that you spend.

Dedicate a document on your phone where you can record every penny you spend, and do it as soon as you spend it.

Every time you shop and before leaving the store, record the amount you spent into the notepad.

Every time you go out to a restaurant or you just grab a snack at a convenience store, write it down on the list in your phone.

This will give you clear picture of your finances.

If you need more time, you can record your expenses for two months or more, so you can see where your money is going and where you can cut.

During this month, try to shop at three or four different big supermarkets.

Save the bills and at the end of the month, compare the prices on the big items that you buy every week.

While your friends may find one supermarket to be cheap, you may find that another supermarket is much more cost effective on the food that you use often.

Then start shopping at that supermarket, this way you will save money on groceries without compromising on the quality of the food that you like and that you are used to.

Another very good way to lower your monthly bills is to call different utility companies and compare prices.

When you have a few quotes, call your provider and discuss lowering your monthly bill.

Let them know that you are looking to lower your bill and that you are considering switching to a company that is offering the same service for a lower price.

Many companies will work with you and match the lower price or they might at least give you a better offer so that they can keep you as customer.
