A Cat in Hell's Chance
By The Campaigners. Edited by Anny Malle. Published by Slingshot, 2002
220 pages, 195mm x 125mm, softback.
When Cynthia OíNeillís cat Snowy was stolen from a small village in Oxfordshire, England, the thieves, who probably sold animals to local laboratories for vivisection, could have had no idea of the chain of events they would set off. The theft of her cat led Cynthia into a battle royal with the nearby Hill Grove Farm which bred cats for vivisection. A Cat in Hellís Chance tells the story of a crusade started by a political novice, which gathered momentum over ten years and became a mass movement which, after battles with Oxfordshire police, many arrests, court appearances and jailings finally shut down Hill Grove Cat Farm.
The book, written almost entirely from contributions by campaigners, tells the true story of one of the most effective campaigns against the breeding and sale of animals for experimentation and vivisection. It also traces the development and the coming to consciousness of a retired Queens Nursing Sister who cast off her more respectable life to commit herself utterly to the cause of anti-vivisection. Cynthia OíNeill was tried and arrested on a number of occasions and spent frequent periods in police custody.
