Dogs seemingly left to "run wild" in a quiet suburb have killed a beloved family cat.

And people living in Tippett Close, Bowthorpe, claim it is not the first time the pack of dogs have killed pets.  

Paula Cubitt and her husband, Stephen, are devastated after their 13-year-old moggie Frosty was found dead in the road on July 27 with the dogs still on the scene.

Paula, who lives in Tippett Close and is full-time carer for her husband Stephen, said: "There are at least three cats, including ours, we know of that have been killed by these dogs.

"The last time I saw Frosty was around 4.30am.

"I woke up and went outside for a smoke and both Frosty and our other cat, Shadow, were in the drive.

"So I fed them both and I went back to bed and the cats went back out.

Frosty was known to love cuddling with her family especially Paula's husband Stephen Cubitt.
