Police: OK man admits killing family cat for urinating in boots
Moore, OK (KFOR-TV) — A man from Moore let his temper get the best of him after police say he admitted to killing the family cat.
The Cleveland County District Attorney's Office charged 43-year-old Kevin Dewayne Grace with one count of animal cruelty.
Earlier in March police responded to a call at a home near the 200 block of S.E. 2nd St.
The woman living at the home told police her husband had killed the family cat and took off.
Court papers revealed the cat was found on a bed in an upstairs bedroom.
The brown and black cat was "motionless; eyes were fixed and dilated."
Police said Grace took off in a Chevrolet pickup and was pulled over for a traffic stop at 1000 S. Interstate 35 near S.E. 59th St.
Officials said Grace admitted he might have killed the cat when he threw it against a closet door.
Authorities said Grace told them he was upset because the cat urinated in his boots.
