So who is the middle-aged woman who stopped to stroke the cat.... before cruelly dumping kitty in the litter?

By Daily Mail Reporter

The woman appears to be harmless as she strokes the four-year-old cat as it walks along a wall

It is the kind of thing you see every day on the average suburban street.

A middle-aged woman sees a tabby cat walking along a wall beside her and stops for a moment to stroke the pet.

Her next move is, thankfully, far less typical.

For as the woman strokes Lola on Saturday evening, she then grabs the cat by the scruff of her neck and throws her in a wheelie bin - before slamming the lid shut.

The middle aged woman then grabs the cat by the scruff of its neck and puts it in the bin before shutting the lid

The woman then casually walks away. The cat was found by its owner 15 hours later

Then she calmly continues on her way.

Thanks to the woman’s cruelty, Lola, a four-year-old rescue cat, was trapped in the bin for 15 hours before her owners found her the next morning.

Darryl Mann, 26, said: ‘I came down to feed Lola on Sunday morning but couldn’t find her anywhere. It was really hot day outside and I searched nearby alleyways but suddenly heard a tiny meowing coming from the bin.

‘I looked inside and I found her in the bin, she was terrified and covered in her own mess.’

The mobile phone repair man and his wife Stephanie Andrews-Mann have cameras covering the outside of their home in Coventry - and the cruel attack was captured on film.

He added: ‘At first I thought she’d somehow climbed inside the bin herself but when I checked the CCTV I was gobsmacked to see some woman had done in deliberately.

Owner Daryll Mann, 26, has posted footage of the incident, which was captured by a CCTV camera, on Youtube in a bid to catch the woman

'I’d like to know how she would feel if she was stuck in a bin for 15 hours without food or drink.’

His wife, Stephanie, who has a daughter from a previous relationship, was appalled by the attack.

She said: ‘I find the entire thing sickening. I cannot believe someone would do this to an innocent family pet.

'Lola was a rescue cat and was wary of people when we first got her. She has a lovely disposition and really wouldn’t hurt a fly.

'This is what makes the attack on her so shocking. I really want to find the woman who did this to her. She must be stopped.'

In an attempt to track down the culprit, the couple have put the 1.27min clip of the attack on Lola on websites YouTube and Facebook.

Those who saw it were shocked. One, Lynsey Skinner, wrote: ‘Someone must know who she is? Have you spoken to your neighbours about it? Crazy and cruel. I hope you do report her and she is caught.’

Yesterday, some 192 supporters had joined a Facebook group set up to find the woman. The RSPCA and West Midlands Police are investigating.

The animal protection charity said: ‘The RSPCA is appalled by allegations that a cat was placed inside a wheelie bin in what would appear to be a mindless act of animal cruelty.'
