Sick burglars beheaded cat.
Steven Browitt and Andrew Maloney used a blunt axe to behead Greta, a blind 19-year-old tortoiseshell cat, during a break-in in Wigan, Greater Manchester, last August.
They left her severed head on a living room coffee table for owner David Byrne to find when he returned home.
Browitt and Maloney, aged 35 and 26, both from Wigan, killed Mr Byrne's pet mouse Snowy by putting it in the microwave with some vegetables.
The pair, who also ransacked the house, broke windows and smeared food around, admitted burglary with intent to cause criminal damage at an earlier hearing at Bolton Crown Court.
