A REWARD is being offered after cats were shot in sickening attacks.

Pensioner Olive Baker was so disgusted by the attacks that she wants to offer her own money to help catch the culprit.

The 80-year-old has put up a £50 reward for the offender to be caught.

As reported in The News, police are investigating after cats have been shot with air guns.

Two families are distraught after their pets were maimed by an unknown attacker in the Waterlooville area.

Abby Phillips’ one-year-old cat Alice is lucky to be alive after a metal pellet lodged itself into her bladder wall.

The family, from Longwood Avenue, Cowplain, have since discovered that their other cat, Beatrix, was also shot after an X-ray confirmed the attack.

And more than a mile away in Hazleton Way, Horndean, Michaela Perkins’ family are devastated after their kitten, Sparkle, was shot and had to undergo life-saving surgery.

Mrs Baker, from Purbrook, said: ‘I was so upset.

‘There’s some evil people these days to do that. It was lucky the cats were not killed.

‘I hope this will help find the people who did this.’
