I love animals and have had pets my entire life. Not having a pet now is horrible and I cannot wait for the day when Addy and I can have another pet. Bella was a rescue cat we had and although a timid little thing she would always come for a cuddle and was so good with Addy. The thought that someone would hurt her was truly awful. We have always taken care of our pets and the thought of animal cruelty upsets me right to the very heart of me. Unfortunately, this is something that still happens today, with the festive period proving the busiest time for the RSPCA.
