The cruel pet owner, who trapped her pets at home for 10 days, has now been jailed after her cats and dog starved to death.
The woman identified as Tiffany Guest, 29, locked her cats Reggie and Ronnie and dog Kray in her flat in Kenilworth, Warwickshire, and moved out of the flat without leaving any food for them.
As unbearable hunger crept in, the pets turned the property upside down and ransacked the bin in a desperate scavenging attempt to find food.
But after wolfing down the measly scraps of leftovers, skeletal Reggie and Ronnie perished and began to fester slumped on the floor.
And in a horrific bid to survive, Kray was forced to feast on the cats’ bodies after watching them slowly die before his eyes.
When police broke in the house they found out the dog, Kray had eaten the bodies of the cats who starved to death.
The RSPCA were alerted and took Kray into RSPCA care for treatment while an investigation was launched.
Police tracked Guest to her place of work blocks away from her forner house but she ran away to Malta so as to avoid jail.
She returned to the UK 13 months ago and was arrested by border control for the outstanding warrant.
She was brought before magistrates in relation to the animal cruelty charges and was bailed to re-appear at another date – but again fled to Malta.
Police again arrested her in October 10 after she re-entered the country and was remanded in custody until her case at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court.
On Wednesday a court sentenced her to 16 weeks imprisonment and banned her from keeping animals for 15 years.
The RSPCA released pictures of Kray’s emaciated body and Reggie’s remains.
RSPCA Inspector Boris Lasserre said after the case: ‘It is incomprehensible to think the suffering these pets must have endured and how terrified they must have been for such a long period of time before the cats died of starvation.
‘It must have been terrible for Kray to watch as the cats died in front of him. ‘There was evidence the pets had scavenged to try and feed themselves as the bin contents were all over the kitchen floor.
‘Just 14 days later, by being fed properly in RSPCA care he made an amazing recovery with a significant increase in weight.
‘Warwickshire Police officers did an amazing job in finding Kray, who they renamed Bobby, just in time as he would not have survived much longer. ‘He is a lovely gentle dog and made a remarkable recovery in RSPCA care and has now been re-homed.’
