A BIRDWELL pet-lover had to watch in horror as her beloved pet cat was killed by two dogs in a deliberate attack on Friday morning.

Faye Gibbs described how she was watching out of the window at about 10.30am when Hugo - the family cat - was chased up a tree near their home at Balk Farm.

To her horror, two men accompanying the dogs shook the tree - causing Hugo to fall and be subjected to a horrific attack from the dogs.

Faye said the men looked 'young' and had a dark-coloured lurcher and greyhound.

"Hugo was a lovely and loving cat," Faye added. "It's awful what these two people have done."

Police are now investigating.
