Man Shoots Neighbor's Cat Because He Doesn't Want It "Pissing All Over"

Hear a tale about a man unloading his gun on a poor, defenseless cat and you might assume the suspect is a sadistic S.O.B. who hates animals. You wouldn't think that the dude would have cats of his own.

But that's exactly what the Sandusky Register says about Daniel Franklin. He may leave food out for other cats, but he knows when he sees the wrong element loitering in his yard. The 51-year-old obviously saw something he didn't like in the eyes Creampuff, his neighbor's cat, and took out his .22-caliber rifle, took aim, and fired.

Beth Hoover, Creampuff's owner, saw her little darling sprinting across their yard bleeding profusely. Her husband followed the blood trails and they led back to Franklin's house.

When asked if he shot the cat, Franklin simply said yes. But he had a reason, you see. He thought Creampuff was an "aggressive male that would be pissing all over." Creampuff, as it turns out, is a 10-month-old female cat. Whoops.

Franklin was charged with animal cruelty.

Creampuff was taken to a local vet. Her condition is not known.
