An irate gardener who drowned his neighbour's cat because it kept attacking birds and digging up his vegetable patch has escaped jail today.<br />
<br />
Retired businessman Richard Giles put tabby cat Ruby in a sack and then held her in a water butt on his property until she was dead.<br />
<br />
Giles was handed a 12 week prison sentence suspended for 12 months by magistrates.
