LACEY, WA – Police in Lacey believe they have a serial cat killer in their midst after a 13th cat was found mutilated in public areas.

In a truly macabre twist on that chilling staple of true crime, the serial killer, pet cats in Thurston County, Washington are being abducted, slaughtered and mutilated in a ritualized manner reminiscent of Saucy Jack.

The string of feline mutilation/murders began in February. One after another, the grisly, slaughtered remains of pet cats began turning up in public places, almost as if, according to authorities, they were being intentionally left on display to be found.

Authorities believe all of the killings are related because of a specific common mutilation.

The Pet Predator (and yes, I’m calling dibs on the moniker) slices them open and removes the spine.

The body count hit thirteen on August 31st. Like the other victims, this was someone’s pet: the guy had taken it in as a stray kitten and raised it to adulthood.

I can’t even imagine. I would go full-on-Dexter.…

DALLAS, TX – A woman in Texas has been accused of fatally shooting her husband because he was beating the family cat.

Police were called to a home on Saturday morning where 47-year-old Mary Harrison had just shot her husband, 49-year-old Dexter Harrison.

When questioned by detectives Harrison told them she shot her husband because he was beating on the family cat.

The man was taken to the hospital but he would die from his injuries.

Harrison was arrested on a murder charge and booked into the Lew Sterrett Justice Center. She is being held on $100,000 bail.

According to neighbors, the family moved into the home a few months ago with their two teenage sons. They mostly kept to themselves, but when the family cat went missing Harrison was seen posting missing fliers in the neighborhood.

“A man got shot over a cat? It’s kind of crazy. It’s unbelievable. A man loses his life over a cat. I mean, people love their pets, but it ain’t that serious… to die for a cat,” said neighbor Carl Phillips.…

Kristen LindseyAUSTIN, TX – Kristen Lindsey, the veterinarian who killed a cat with a bow and arrow then posed with its corpse on Facebook, is fighting to keep her veterinarian’s license.

Last year, Lindsey posted a picture of her holding a skewered cat that she had shot through the head with a bow and arrow. It was captioned:

My first bow kill lol. The only good tomcat is one with an arrow through it’s head! Vet of the year award…gladly accepted

Anyone with a shred of intelligence can guess what happened next, and I am still amazed that Lindsey did not foresee the same consequences. She was flooded with messages from outraged animal lovers and was eventually fired from her job at the Washington Animal Clinic.

She was not charged with a crime, but the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners wanted her license revoked. She is currently in the middle of a three day hearing in an attempt to keep that from happening.

On day one of the hearing, Lindsey took the stand and explained that she only killed the cat because she thought the cat was feral.…

B9317869915Z.1_20150625204756_000_G9RB6DPD4.1-0SALEM, OR – Rudi Espinoza, 24, has been arrested for working out any issues he had with his mother’s cat by lopping off its head.

According to reports Espinoza knocked on his neighbor’s door at midnight, dressed only in boxers, covered in scratches and blood. The neighbor called 911. When the police arrived Espinoza answered the door still covered in blood in his boxers acting strangely as if he were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Officers would note that Espinoza was covered in claw and bite marks. Upon further investigation the headless body of his mother’s cat would be found inside his residence. It was noted the cat’s tail was also broken. A kitchen knife found at the scene is believed to be the weapon he used to kill the cat.

When questioned, Espinoza told deputies that he had killed the cat, “…because it was evil and nosy.” It has been alleged that his motivation for killing the cat was to cause his mother pain, which I’m positive he succeeding in doing.…

Michael TrudeauCHASKA, MN – Michael Trudeau is facing a slew of charges after the 51-year-old lunatic allegedly killed his girlfriend’s cat weeks before biting off part of her ear and shoving an umbrella down her throat.

Last Sunday, officers responded to a report of a domestic assault and met with a 42-year-old woman who was visibly shaken and bloody.

She told them Trudeau, her boyfriend of two years, had spent the afternoon at her apartment drinking before they got into a verbal argument over their relationship that turned physical.

This argument may have had something to do with an incident that had happened a few weeks prior, when Trudeau allegedly set the victim’s cat on fire in the living room. After the fire was extinguished, Trudeau reportedly strangled the cat to death before cutting off its head with a pair of scissors.

The girlfriend didn’t call police because, well, he’s fucking crazy and he threatened to kill her if she did.

Now, three weeks later, the woman has found herself in a headlock with Trudeau telling her, “I’m trained to kill the enemy.…

Two Teens Arrested After Feeding Two Dogs A Live Cat

December 11, 2014 at 10:19 am by  

scared catBAKERSFIELD, CA – Two teens in California have been arrested after video surfaced of them feeding two dogs a live cat.

Earlier this month, someone tipped off County Animal Control that they had received a video on a social networking site that showed two teens feeding a cat to two large dogs while the teens could be heard in the background encouraging the dogs.

Animal Control staff reviewed the video, which was recorded over the summer, and then contacted the Kern County Sheriff’s Office to request an investigation. Detectives were eventually able to identify the teen who posted the video online, then later identify the two teens in the video – a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old boy.

Both teens were arrested and booked into Juvenile Hall. They are now facing animal cruelty charges. Police are asking that anyone with any further information on this case to call the Sheriff’s Office at 661-861-3110, or Secret Witness at 661-322-4040.

I’ve said it before, but I am so glad that we did not have the ability to easily record stupid shit we did as teenagers.…

408-859-5160Daly City, CA — A 26-year-old man accused of “viciously” biting his parents and threatening to kill them and burn their home down during an argument over a visit with the family cat, has pleaded not guilty to felonious assault.

After returning home from a Thanksgiving trip Saturday, Yevgeniy Bolshakov asked his parents if he could see the family cat, as he had missed the evil fucking creature while he was away. His parents denied his request, stating that the cat had recently undergone surgery and just wasn’t up to receiving visitors. Primadonna….

And that’s about the time Bolshakov lost his shit.

He reportedly lashed out at his father, punching him in the head several times before biting a chunk of meat out of the 64-year-old man’s arm. He also bit the man on the elbow and the chin. When mom tried to intervene, the 54-year-old woman got popped upside the head and bitten on hand, claim authorities.

Bolshakov was promptly carted off to jail, allegedly declaring on the way that he wanted to kill both of his parents and burn their apartment down.…

Man Accused Of Assaulting Girlfriend With Her Cat

October 29, 2013 at 11:52 am by  

Kenneth StuartDAVIE, FL – A man with a history of battery arrests has been arrested again after allegedly using a cat to attack his girlfriend.

Kenneth Stuart, 41, was fighting with his live-in girlfriend last week when he walked into the bedroom holding her cat over his head, then threw it in her face. The cat ended up scratching the woman on the left side of her face and her eye.

When police arrived, Stuart told them, “Just take me to fucking jail. I’m tired of this.” And take him to jail they did, charging Stuart with battery, tormenting an animal, and resisting an officer without violence.

When he faced Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley to answer to the charges, he told Hurley he’s unemployed and unable to work because of herniated discs in his back. Hurley found that interesting, especially after reading the facts about the case.

“That’s very interesting. I didn’t realize you had such a bad back,” said Hurley. “They say you broke the TV, the computer, the kitchen window, and then during it, you pushed her, knocked the TV and the computer to the ground.”

Hurley ordered Stuart to be held in jail on a $16,000 bond.…

Ryan TannenholzBoise, ID — This article was written by one of our readers (Gradient Descent) who has not created an account yet, but I really wanted this story published. So here it is.

Ryan Havens Tannenholz, 28, was arrested last week after a Boise police investigation concluded that he had sexually penetrated a cat on “more than one occasion.”

According to Deputy Prosecutor Cathy Guzman, Tannenholz’ liberties with the small animal took place between January 2012 and January 2013 at a Boise home. A warrant was issued for Tannenholz’ arrest after a thorough police investigation cataloged his catastrophic crimes.

Tannenholz was charged with six felony counts of crimes against nature and one misdemeanor count of cruelty to an animal. Additional charges may be lodged against Tannenholz if it is determined that he had groomed the victim.

It is worth noting that Tannenholz is a “furry” – or a follower of Furry Fandom – who has a few animal personas. Here is photo from his DeviantArt page purportedly showing him dressed as a dog named “Bubblegum Husky.” His
DeviantID includes the phrase: “Love what is furry.” ‘Nuff said.…

Thetford, UK – A 19-year-old British man has been placed in custody after admitting in court to microwaving a cat until it died. Jamie Blake was charged by Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court with causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal. The details leading up to the killing, though, are sure to exonerate him.

The cat, paradoxically named “Buddy,” was reportedly informally adopted by Blake while he was staying at a group home in Thetford, UK. Blake said he would keep the cat in his room for company at night, feeding it cheese and tuna. According to reports, Blake told the court that the cat then started talking to him.

Did it say “Thank you for the cheese and tuna!” you ask? Of course not. It’s a cat. It’s evil.

According to Blake, what Buddy did say is that his mother’s dead ex-partner was, in fact, injecting his mother with heroin. The defendant, who has been described as having ‘mental health issues,’ then reportedly started arguing with the cat. As anyone who has argued with a cat can tell you, this proved pointless.…

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Police have arrested man they say raped a cat before throwing it out a seventh-floor window.

Someone called 911 Wednesday morning after witnessing 30-year-old Gerardo Martinez masturbating in front of his apartment window and then throwing a cat to the sidewalk below.

When police arrived they found a bleeding, gray cat barely alive on the sidewalk. With the help of witnesses, police were able to identify Martinez’ apartment.

When he answered the door, he did so shirtless and with his pants down. Police asked him to pull up his pants and then asked him about the cat.

Martinez first denied he had a cat, then changed his story saying his boyfriend had tossed the cat a few hours earlier.

When presented with the fact that they had witnesses saying the he threw the cat out the window a little more recently, Martinez then admitted that while high on meth he raped the cat and then threw it out the window along with a pornographic DVD.

Martinez was arrested and charged with animal torture, bestiality and indecent exposure.…

Woman Gets Stabby Over Pet’s Medical Bills

July 30, 2011 at 10:48 am by  

North Palm Beach, FL – Robin Warren, 55, has been arrested after reportedly becoming a stabbing machine in response to her husband’s refusal to pay medical bills for her cat.

Police say that the couple was arguing over her cat’s medical treatment last Wednesday.  At some point in the discussion – a particularly bad point, let’s say… Warren reportedly ‘lunged’ at her husband with scissors.  Her husband got the scissors away from her, but Warren then grabbed a wooden coat hanger and struck him in the face, police said.

Apparently seeing where all of this was going, the unidentified husband then tried to leave the home.  In response, Warren grabbed two kitchen knives and began to cut him on his hands and arms.

Officer’s arrived and gained control of the situation.  Warren’s husband refused medical attention – apparently realizing that his willingness to pay for his own treatment would unleash a renewed torrent from hell.  He left the residence, police said.

Warren was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. She was reportedly charged with aggravated battery and false imprisonment.  …
