Tiddles, a tabby cat from Bournemouth, is resigned to staying alive after unsuccessfully trying to commit suicide 8 times.
Tiddles’ owner, Hilda Merton aged 78, said she couldn’t understand why Tiddles was so depressed, especially after she had recently bought him a lovely pink collar. “He would run out onto the road, but they kept swerving. He tried to electrocute himself by rubbing his collar against the power socket. But mostly he attempted to hang himself from his beautiful pink collar.”
Cat psychologist Brenda Evans urged Tiddles to try curiosity.
