Thank you very much. Couldyou check these other sentences,please?

1)When reporting a story written in the past, can I use the simple present (present perfect)?
Example: the narrator had always been fond of pets. He had had pets at home since he was a child.
Changes: The narrator has always been fond of pets. He has had pets at home since he was a child????
2) He continued having pets at home even after getting married. His favourite pet was a black cat, Pluto, that preferred his wife, though. Pluto was a beautiful, big, cat. He was intelligent and followed his master everywhere, even through the streets.
3) After some years though, the narratorís personality because of (due to) alcohol addiction.
4) One night he cut out one of the catís eyes from its socket (OR cut the catís eye out of his socket??). The cat recovered but always tried to avoid its master after that.
5)Even though the socket of his lost eye was awful, the cat didnít seem to be suffering any longer. One morning the narrator hanged the cat with a rope from a tree near his house (he hanged him on the branch of a tree?).
