Our cat was savagely attacked by a Staffordshire terrier

Customer Question

Hello
Our cat was savagely attacked by a Staffordshire Bull terrier while we were on holiday.
I would like to know where do we stand legally with this?
I have not yet visited the owners of the dog, but our neighbour has and she said that he was intimidating and abusive.
We have to date, paid out nearly £3000 for operations and the cat is doing well.
I'd like the owners of the dog to maybe compensate us, or claim on their pet insurance, but am wary of going round to their house.
Kind Regards,
Lee Johnstone
