Sad tale of starving pets

Sir,

I feel compelled to write to the Ilkeston Advertiser about the story of 14 starving animals left inside an Ilkeston flat. I can’t begin to think what those pets must have gone through when left to die one-by-one.

I presume he could not afford to feed these animals so why didn’t he ring the RSPCA? These animals would probably still be alive if he had contacted them.

I can’t imagine how these cats and dogs were feeling when they were starving to death.
