Cat killer seeks refuge from angry pet owners

A local woman who was accused of abusing and slaying adopted cats is seeking police protection as angry cat owners gathered outside her apartment yesterday demanding explanations.
The 50 plus cat owners, most of them have given kittens to the woman in the past two years, gathered outside in her building in a complex on Jiaocheng Road, Zhabei District yesterday evening.
Cathy Yang, 24, told Shanghai Daily that they went there after hearing from a neighbor that the woman Zhou Ying adopted a cat from her but its body was later found on the lawn in front of her apartment.
Zhou put the cat in a plastic bag to smother it unconscious, then trod on its body to break its bones, and finally threw the bag out of her window, the neighbor told others.
Yang and 50 other cat owners went to Zhou's home around 6pm yesterday. They kicked the door open and started searching their cats but found none. All they found was that the 38-year-old woman lived in a rented small apartment but she lied that she lived in a luxury villa.
Seeing the angry crowd wants to beat her, Zhou immediate called for police. She and all the cat owners were later taken to a police station for questioning.
