This is a follow-up post to one that I wrote earlier. It was reported that Pete Doherty’s two Huskies killed Archie a cat belonging to Penny Ward. It was also reported that Pete Doherty did not apologise and no further action was taken. It was decided that a crime had not taken place. Although in my view Penny has the right to claim compensation in the civil courts for negligence as the cat was allegedly taken from her garden by the dogs.
The Sun reports that Pete Doherty has now visited Penny at her basement flat. He asked her: “It was still twitching – did you not take it to the vet?”. It appears that he only took this action after a huge amount of online publicity about the attack.
He then asked her whether she would like to meet his two Huskies to see how nice they were. We are told that he has not apologised to Penny for the savaging of her cat by his two off-lead Siberian hunting dogs.
Interestingly, it has been revealed that he had placed his two cats in a shelter to prevent his dogs attacking them.
A passerby, Kieron Woodward, 27, tried to stop the dogs killing Archie. He said that the cat was still moving but could only open and close his mouth before he passed away.
That concludes the update. It is very surprising that Pete Doherty has yet to apologise even though he has visited Archie’s owner. Doherty is the front man for the Libertines and the well-known rockstar and drug taker.
I can remember some years ago him smoking, I think it was cannabis, with his cat and putting his cigarette near the cat to check how it affected the animal. He was obviously careless around animals then and still maintains that behaviour.
