Woman hounds ex over lost cat
A WARWICK woman who breached a domestic violence order by repeatedly contacting her ex-husband about her missing cat has appeared in court.
The Warwick Magistrates Court yesterday heard the woman called her husband at 7pm on May 22, asking him if he had anything to do with the cat's disappearance.
The man attended the police station shortly after the phone call, with the woman again calling him while he was at the station.
Not giving up in her plight to locate her feline friend, the 50-year-old woman arrived at the police station while her ex-husband was still present, asking him to help her find it.
She was arrested at the station after ignoring police directions to stop talking to the man.
A domestic violence order was issued on February 22, prohibiting the woman from having any contact with her former husband.
Defence counsel for the woman told the court his client and the man in question had been involved in a "poisonous relationship", which involved violence, for some time.
He added that the man involved would often loiter outside her home and had even ridden his bicycle past court that morning.
The court heard the woman was "hysterical" when the cat went missing and she simply wanted to find it.
She was placed on a $150 good behaviour bond for six months and no conviction was recorded.
