Published Aug 23, 2007It's never easy believing the Daily Star, but its reporting that Babyshambles front-man and drug addict Pete Doherty, who just got off a drugs charge yet again, has somehow managed to get one of his kittens addicted to cocaine. Yes, seriously. Really!
Saved by the RSPCA when the newborn offspring of Doherty's cat Dinger fell ill, a blood test revealed that the little kitty had cocaine in its bloodstream.
Julie Stainton, an RSPCA spokesperson said: "It is a police matter, so we cannot deny or confirm the identity of the man who had his kitten removed. But it is very important to protect animals from substances that can do them serious harm.
As you can imagine, pet owners, animal rights groups and, really, just about anyone with a heart are all outraged. But is this really a surprise?
