Sorry rat poison? So it could die slowly by having a stroke... Agree with both points above. I feel sorry for the cat but not the owners. It's a domesticated animal yet for some reason there are no laws that protect others. Dog owners are forced to clean up after their animals even if they let them loose in parks. Yet cats are notorious for using neighbours' gardens as toilets and leaving others to clean up their mess - and there's nothing to force the owners to do anything. People don't also realise just how obvious and smelly cat crap is as well.
