Texas Woman Shoots Husband to Protect Cat

Spring, TX resident Audrey Deen Miller was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon yesterday after an early morning argument with her husband in the couple’s back yard. Precinct 4 Assistant Chief Mark Herman accepted Ms. Miller’s claim that she shot her husband in the abdomen after he threatened to shoot one of her cats, saying “The husband was trying to do something to the cat and the wife was just trying to protect her cat.”

The husband was taken to a hospital and arrived home later in the day, still wearing his hospital gown and unable to enter his locked home. He declined to comment to the KHOU news crew covering the story at the scene.

The cat was not hurt.

    Shooting a cat is animal abuse…why wait until it is done. She did the right thing and he should be in jail, not her.

    I hope she’s going to be OK. I would have done the same thing.

    The problem is, he’s home now. I pray he doesn’t hurt any of the animals.

    Ah, a lady after my own heart. Is anyone able to look after the cat until his mum is home again? I would not trust that guy to be alone with said cat. xxx

    In Texas, we’d say, “he needed killing.”

    Bet he’ll think before he tries to attack the cat again. Love it when a woman knows how to use a gun. Don’t kill him. Just get his full attention. Good job.

    I don’t blame her a bit. You just LET someone threaten one of my cats. Good for her. If someone threatened one of my cats, I’d do the same thing. The guy ought to have charges brought against him for threatening to shoot a poor defenseless cat.

    Someone should cut that lady’s husband’s hands off. I hope he doesn’t try to get revenge by hurting the poor cat. Well done, lady. I would have done the same, and God only knows I love my man. But nobody touches a strand of fur on my cats’ backs!

    I’d have aimed at his knee and used a pellet gun, but I would not have let him shoot my cat.

    You go girl. Is there anywhere we can send donations for her legal defense? This jerk got exactly what he deserved. People who abuse animals or even threaten to abuse them are scum. This is nothing more than some abusive lowlife who attempts to control and hurt his partner by threatening or harming animals.
