“Thank you so much for your condolences,” Carla wrote about her precious pet.
“Miccio was cremated last night after the animal control released his body. The crime was reported to the authorities. May his soul be in peace with God and may whom did that to him be dealing with karma for the rest of his/her life. Thanks again!”
Carla shared a picture of the little Tiger kitty on her Instagram page and said that her precious pussy was poisoned by her “sick neighbor.”
“This is Miccio, my kitty when only 2 weeks old, Miccio was only 16 months and killed today by poison given to him by some sick neighbor of mine! God keep his soul! I can't believe how cruel people can be. He found his way back home and died in my back yard. I hope this person pays for what him/her did to my Miccio; he was the sweetest kitty I have ever met. #chefcarlapellegrino #animalcruelty #stop”
Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Norm Clarke reported more details about the vicious murder of the pet.
“Miccio (kitty in Italian) was found under rose plant in Pellegrino's bkyard. 16 m's old. Animal control said rat poison caused death,” he wrote about the brutal crime.
