AIBU

AIBU to think Katie Price should be banned from keeping animals?

Today she ‘sadly’ announced her daughter’s young puppy had died through a tragic accident. She then publicises the fact, I suppose, in order to gain column inches and sympathy. As far as I can tell that is 3 dogs and 3 horses that have died under her ‘care’. She also sold off her pets that she previously had when she needed the money. Does she have no shame? Surely this is the sort of case the RSPCA should be investigating. IMHO she is absolutely disgusting and should be prosecuted forthwith. I am so cross.

Harvey hasn't been long out of ICU and she's buzzed off to Turkey ! Great mum, eh ? I believe he fought for his life too.

Would anyone here leave a sibling who'd been very ill ? Sounds like you would !

EllanVannin Fri 24-Jul-20 07:32:38

What about her sick mother as well ? Very caring I must say.

“Sounds like you would “. Who? I wouldn’t.

Where is Harvey's father. And the threads criticising him.

She is her own worst enemy, all for publicity, yet her devotion to her disabled son and her mother in her illness has shown her very loving and caring side. All these younger men, the cosmetic procedures show how insecure she really is.

Galaxy I think Harvey's father is footballer, don't think he has helped much with his son.

KP is dysfunctional and more to be pitied now than blamed. Her heyday is long gone and I think she has never been able to move on from this.

Sparkling Fri 24-Jul-20 08:41:49

EllaVannin, you obviously could cope with Harvey a lot better, you shouldn’t judge unless you have had the problems she has had with him, for all her faults, she loves him, her life is a mess and I am not a fan however I feel sorry for the mess her life is in.

Galaxy Fri 24-Jul-20 08:43:10

Yes I know that soda pop. He has never been involved inHarveys life.

I read this morning that the pup, a French bulldog, was given to her by a commercial puppy breeding company, that specialises in that breed. The puppy was a gift for KP's 13 year old daughter. The article states the puppy was suffocated when he got stuck in one of those collapsable arm chairs and was fun dead by her 5 year old daughter.
Two things stand out for me. Firstly, the over popularity of French bulldogs, who have numerous health problems. I'm always wary of commercial breeders who are earning mega bugs by breeding puppies from an overly popular breed. It never ends well.
Secondly, I feel a little sorry for KP. Her life seems chaotic and full of drama. Yes, that's down to her but honestly, what a way to live.
So far as I know, a horse in her care died and two of her dogs have been run over in the grounds near her house. I read yesterday that Rachel Johnson ran over their five month old cockapoo puppy when she was arriving at their Dorset home. Luckily, the pup had 'no more' than a broken leg. Ms Johnson states her vet said its not an uncommon occurrence.

I think she is a disgrace and no role model for her daughter ,who i read this morning is back with Peter Andre, although i thought she was taking them to Turkey with her and [another] new boyfriend,
Also read the poor puppy was crushed in an electric chair while she was packing in another room,
Poor little thing,i hope she's not allowed anymore pets, and done for neglect,and yes she was warned never to leave a puppy on it's own, too bothered about the holiday with boyfriend,
She might love Harvey ,but always willing to leave him with a carer, to jet off somewhere

Imagine if the newspapers were send a link to this thread?

Hmm.....

blondenana Fri 24-Jul-20 12:35:35

Nothing said that isn't true,lots of comments in the papers as well
It is so upsetting to read of animals being not looked after, and most of these animals of hers were killed through carelessness

Furret Fri 24-Jul-20 12:42:25

Not in the papers I read. The tabloid press would eat you all for breakfast. Can you imagine this headlines? And that's before the law suits for libel or defamation of character. You'd better be very careful.

MissAdventure Fri 24-Jul-20 12:50:06

She sounds like plenty of other dysfunctional people, except she is in the public eye.

EllanVannin Fri 24-Jul-20 12:53:55

Nasty---Lucca. I wouldn't desert a sick animal let alone a human. Her child was in intensive care, lucky to be alive she said a few days ago !

EllanVannin Fri 24-Jul-20 12:55:41

Sparkling, the child hasn't been out of hospital a week !!

EllanVannin Fri 24-Jul-20 12:58:56

KP has created her own mess ! Nobody had a gun to her head telling her that she must lead this sort of a life. How ridiculous many of you are .

Nothing wrong with Peter Andre's life is there ?? Or her other husbands come to that.

Haha very funny. Given the names and insults hurled at Boris Johnson if you look at the political threads - I don’t think people on here need to be worried about tabloid press. People have stated the truth on here - she is dysfunctional and I feel sorry for her children who bear the brunt of her appalling behaviour.

CarlyD7 Fri 24-Jul-20 13:19:01

I'm sure I've read that Harvey lives in a residential home now, so, presumably that's where he's gone back to, whilst she's gone on holiday to Turkey? There have been a lot of animal deaths over a comparatively short time - when I think about how many decades I've had animals and they've all died from natural causes after a long life, it does worry me. Suspect it's not cruelty per se but reflects the chaotic nature of her life which means that they don't get the care they need to keep them safe? Certainly that number of animal deaths needs investigating IMO.

It was YOU who said “sounds as though you would”. NOT ME.

So please don’t call me nasty

Galaxy Fri 24-Jul-20 13:57:22

Well theres the father who has completely ignored him his whole life Ellan.

Callistemon Fri 24-Jul-20 14:02:34

A sibling is a brother or sister.
I thought Harvey was Katie Price's child, whom she loves, whose father disappeared off the scene.

Just to avoid any confusion.

Chewbacca Fri 24-Jul-20 14:06:45

You're right Callistemon, Harvey is her eldest child. There has been a lot of online abuse about him, some of it really vile, and KP hasbegged that, whilst herlife is open to the media, her cnild should be kept out of the trolling and abuse. I think she started a campaign against online bullying quite recently.

sharon103 Fri 24-Jul-20 14:06:48

Katie Price used to be known as the topless model ' Jordan' some years ago.
She always seems insecure to me and an attention seeker.
