A CAT owner who admitted causing unnecessary suffering to his pets will be sentenced next month.

Darren Woodhouse, of Aireton Road, Barnsley, was bailed while a pre-sentence report is compiled.

Two cats were found to be suffering with weight loss and fleas, which prompted the RSPCA to pursue court proceedings.

The 40-year-old will appear at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on May 13.
