    So what was his problem? He couldn't just tell her he didn't like cats and would prefer she not have one?
    I think she should be thankful he got caught, she may have been next.

    The article describes the girlfriend as "unsuspecting." C'mon, all 6 of her cats experience head trauma and 4 die in the months after her boyfriend moves in, and she suspected nothing??? If these were children not cats, she'd be charged right along with him.

    She has to be pretty dumb not to realize something bad was going on and these weren't accidents. :furious: :furious:

    Very true! There is a link between animal abuse and domestic violence--for example, read http://www.aspca.org/fight-animal-cruelty/domestic-violence-and-animal-cruelty.html .

    Reading stories like this always makes me so sad...pets are so trusting, and so dependent on us humans. Ugh.

    I agree. There is something not right about this story. The first cat was found behind the dryer? I assume there were only two people in the house/apartment. Common sense would tell me that if I didn't do it, the other had. I have a feeling they will each say the other did it when they get to court.

    I couldnt read the story because it saddens me that people hurt animals so I will just say I dont really get how people can hurt defenseless animals.

    I may be just taking it wrong but did ya read where the newspaper said he wrote them and said "I do, however, invite you to join us on the day my ex-girlfriend gets cross-examined,". I thinking he may try to make it look like SHE was the one doing it.

    The poor kittys!

    I was blinded by my belief that this was some kind of domestic violence case-there IS a clear link between DV and attacks on beloved pets. Given the time frame and the number of kittys however, you all have me thinking differently about her knowlege of this for sure!!!

    It just makes no sense- the minds of these freaks! Where the heck are all these people coming from that they'd rather murder some living, breathing thing/person rather than simply walking away from a lousy relationship? What makes a mind believe murder is a viable option, a way out of anything?!?! I just wish I could understand it... more important, I wish society (scientists!) could understand it so that we can do something to make it all stop before we end up self destructing.

    I mean, come on- little kittties for crying out loud! wtf is wrong with people?! and please don't say mental illness or I will screeeam :crazy:! LOL

    I have 4 cats and I just can't imagine. I haven't read the article. I don't know how he killed them. I don't want to know. I am very sensitive when it comes to animals being hurt or neglected.

    My cats are like my children I think i would just die right then and there - after I strung him up by his toes, castrated him and skinned him alive.......just kidding, sort of. :eek:
