The Cat With Nine Lives

People can be pretty vicious when it comes to domestic disturbances. Emotions run hot and tempers can flare. In a fit of rage they will sometimes do anything as a means of revenge, coercion, control, or punishment. We’ve seen them do everything from destroying each other’s property to physically attacking one another. Rarely, though, do we see someone target a pet.

In the early hours of New Year’s Day a domestic fight broke out between girlfriends at an apartment. Property was broken and fists flew. At one point during the fight, a cat was thrown out a second story window. The suspect in the incident said she knew the only way to hurt her girlfriend was to hurt the cat she loved.

Thankfully, the cat survived the fall with minor injuries. This situation just demonstrates how nothing is safe when people start to lose control.
