(Keep your pets indoors! Some people don't want them on their property and will resort to any means!)
Nine cats have been poisoned with antifreeze in a Pirimai, Napier, street.
SPCA staff have been dealing with poisoning cases in Davidson Ave since last year and at least nine cats, including two kittens, have had to be euthanised.
Alesha McKay has lost one cat and three kittens to poisoning since January.
Two of the kittens, Chaos and Wicca, both 8 months old, were put down this week.
She has one more cat, as well as a dog and young children, so she was worried about the situation.
"My young son's very angry at the fact that someone would do it on purpose," she said.
"We can't get any more cats if they're going to end up dead, it's just cruel."
