Hope not Hate man, Mark Booth came back from the pub and choked his cat because it was ‘bothering’ his wife who then reported him to the RSPCA
A Left-Wing sicko is facing jail after he downed two pints in his local pub and went home to kill his cat – telling his horrified wife “it has to go”.
Mark Booth, 53, insisted that the affectionate four-year-old female Tabby called Oli was a “nuisance”.
He said: “I’m going to kill it. I am going to do it now.”
The callous killer, who smirked as he arrived at court, then throttled Oli, who fought back and left deep claw marks on Booth.
He dumped the body in a wheelie bin and told his wife: “The cat won’t bother you any more.”
John Sutcliffe, prosecuting on behalf of the RSPCA, told South Derbyshire magistrates: “Mrs Booth heard the sound of the wheelie bin lid being shut. He walked back into the house and she described him as being covered in his own blood from scratches to his arm.
“He said: ‘I killed it, I strangled it, you know it had to go’.”
Mr Sutcliffe added that the couple had owned the “extremely affectionate tabby” four years.
Mrs Booth was very upset and rushed out of the house to call the RSPCA . The couple have since split up.
Magistrates heard the shocking incident occurred last August after Booth drank two pints of beer in his local. He had told his wife the cat had worms and she said she would take it for treatment next day.
Booth, of Ripley, pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to an animal and will be sentenced on Monday.
