‘Well, I kind of am and I’m not (surprised),’ Natalie responded.

‘If we do a story about something happening to a dog or a cat, people care more about that than a human. They just do. Don’t you think?’

Natalie’s co-host David Kochie responded: ‘You do. You’re an animal lover’.

Kochie then put his arm around Natalie as Shaun replied: ‘I didn’t know. I’m so sorry. I don’t know what to say.’

‘Did you not know? We had to have him put down and Flash (her cat), we had to have her put down last year too,’ Natalie explained.

Shaun then apologised as Natalie said: ‘We all know, it’s part of nature, we all know it has to happen. I’ve come to terms with it.’

Kochie put an arm around Natalie as Shaun replied: 'I didn't know. I'm so sorry. I don't know what to say'
