Cat owners warned in Burnham-On-Sea over anti-freeze poisoning

Cat owners in Burnham-On-Sea have this week been warned to be on their guard after an animal died of suspected anti-freeze poisoning in the town.

One cat has died, another is ill and a third is missing in the Wallace Wells Road area of Burnham.

Local resident Mike Lang told "A friend has asked that a warning is issued amid concern that someone may be poisoning cats with anti-freeze."

"So far one cat has died, one is seriously ill, and one is missing. I would urge cat owners to take extra care and would also remind everyone that these animals are deeply loved by their owners."

"The vet has diagnosed anti-freeze poisoning, but there are several theories on what could be causing the issues, including weedkiller."
