RESIDENTS have been left outraged after an individual's social media post threatened to 'get rid' of pet cats in Callands.

Warrington Animal Welfare took to Facebook to share the post this morning, Monday, urging cat owners in the area to be vigilant following the threat.

The post stated: "Just letting anyone know who has a cat that I am not a lover, and two cats in particular keep soiling in my garden.

"I have sought advice so I am going to put out some 'food' to get rid of them.

"I hope their owners can be more responsible but I am fed up of seeing them and so is the wildlife of Callands.

"Good riddance to bad medicine."

More than 160 people have responded to the threat, with many sharing their horror and offering safe and harmless alternatives to keep cats away.
