London, July 9 (IANS) A 30-year-old woman in Britain has been accused of microwaving her neighbour’s kitten after she was allegedly thrown out of a party, a media report said Saturday.

Gina Robins, 30, faces one charge of causing unnecessary suffering to the pet by putting it in the appliance at a house in Torquay, Devon, Feb 16, the Daily Mail reported.

It is claimed the short-haired kitten, which was only a few months old, suffered devastating injuries and died.

Robins pleaded not guilty when she appeared before magistrates and only spoke to confirm her name and address.

The case is being brought forward by the animal charity RSPCA after the kitten’s owner made a formal complaint, the Mail said.
