Will Mellor Cat Story
In one episode of Two Pints, Will Mellor told an interesting cat story of putting someone’s cat to death, after mistaking the pet for his own. At 44-years, he had two felines as pets and one among them was called Leo. Both the cats used to visit his house, stay for some while, eat whatever they were fed, and disappear, sometimes for weeks.
One feline named Leo disappeared for 7-8 weeks and Will thought it was gone forever. But one fine day, he had a knock on the door as one of his neighbors brought in a cat and mentioned it as Leo.
Will Mellor was happy and observed after a day that something was wrong with the cat. He took the cat to a vet only to find it was suffering from throat cancer. At the request of the doctor, Mellor permitted the clinic staff to put down the animal, as it wouldn’t have survived more, as its cancer was in its last stage.
The veterinary staff did what they had to do and gave the ashes to the Two Pints podcast host. He then kept the pot of ashes on the windowsill to show his gratitude to the dead creature.
On the same day, there was somebody at the door who said that his cat Leo was alive and found him injured as a car ran it over.
It was then that the Stockport actor realized that he had put down someone else cat and his pet feline was at his door seeking help and shelter, thereafter.
Leo was a darling to Will’s children and so after spending £5000 on vet bills, it was brought back to life only to lay kittens in the Mellor household, a few months after.
