London, May 13 : Babyshambles front man Pete Doherty has revealed that his cat made him realise that he was far gone on narcotics, when he tried to kill it with a spade.

He decided that his drug abusing had gone far enough, after he attempted to batter to death one of his kittens with a spade, making him seek help from Wormwood Scrubs, from where he earned his drug-free certificate.

"I got a shovel and was going to kill one of the cats. That was when I was, like, you know, 'I'm a bit of a mess'. It was a bit of a crazy time," The Sun quoted him as saying.

Doherty had walked away free from the West London lock-up last week after serving just 29 days of a 14-week sentence for failing to turn up for drug tests.

Upon being released from the institution, he began planning a belated birthday party for himself, to celebrate turning 29-years-old.

"I can't remember the last one at all. And now I'm clean I want one that I can remember," he said.

"I would like it to be fancy dress and everything. A real party," he added.

He also confirmed that the green light has been given for Babyshambles' follow-up to Shotters Nation.

"That will keep me busy and, hopefully, out of trouble," he said.
