pounds 2,000 reward t catch cat killers.

A CAT found strung up above a busy city street had been set on fire before being hanged alive.

The shocking revelation comes as a pounds 2,000 reward is offered for the capture of the sadists responsible.

Two dead adult cats were discovered on Monday morning, hanging from the window of an empty flat in Kensington.

RSPCA vets carried out a post mortem examination on the pair of black cats yesterday.

Three readers, who wish to remain anonymous, and Kensington Fields residents' association (KFRA) have promised a reward following the arrest and conviction of the thugs responsible.

One said: 'I am appalled. Whoever is responsible has taken time and trouble over this. It is sick and so are they.

'I am a cat lover and have five cats myself.

I would happily hand over pounds 1,000 to see these monsters caught.'

Another cat lover, who pledged pounds 500, said: 'This has shocked and sickened me to the pit of my stomach.'

Another pet owner, who promised pounds 500, said: 'I love animals and I abhor cruelty. People should be coming forward to identify these people without the financial incentive but, if that is what it takes to catch these people, then so be it.'

The KFRA has pledged pounds 300.

Heather Holmes, of the RSPCA, said: 'I hope that this reward will prompt people to come forward. Anyone who has any information about who might be responsible for this cruelty, please contact us
