Anifreeze Appeal After West Norfolk Pet Deaths

As people get their cars ready for winter there's a warning for people in West Norfolk to be really careful with anti-freeze:
“The hardest thing was telling my children. My daughter is only 4 and our kitten Molly took to her really quickly. It was just knowing the house was going to be so quiet because she was such a funny cat.”
Katie is from Terrington, and was told that her 6 month old kitten was facing a painful death after it fell ill at home. Vets said it must have drank antifreeze while out.
The kitten was put down and Katie is now collecting signatures on a petition to manufacturers to try and get them to add something foul tasting to anti-freeze.
“I’ve got just over 2700 signatures at the moment. I just want to change the taste of it. Without that sweet taste, the animals won’t go for it, but it just seems so hard for the manufacturers to do that.”
