SPCA probes nasty neighbour who allegedly dumped missing cats in field
The Cape Of Good Hope SPCA is currently investigating allegations a disgruntled neighbour in Welgelegen trapped and abducted two cats.
The neighbour apparently transported the cats in the boot of his car and dumped the animals at an open field in Atlantis.
The cats, Oberon and Phoebe, were reported missing by their owner Paula Kingham and a search and rescue operation was launched.
Meanwhile a dog was also stabbed in an horrific attack in Khayelitsha. The alleged perpetrator will appear in court on Friday 6 July.

SPCA spokesperson, Belinda Abraham, has warned residents not to take the law into their own hands when dealing a neighbour's troubling pet.
Abraham adds that stray or lost animals should be taken to the nearest veterinarian to check for microchips and ownership.
