Someone is murdering cats!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
My friend called me in tears the other day to tell me her cat had gone missing, when they found him he had been cut in half and disembowled. A quick survey of neighbors found three other missing, later found murdered cats. The police came out, but didn't seem too concerned. The SPCA hasn't even returned her call.

I feel so helpless. Some monster is out there murdering cats. You know it won't be long until they are killing people, why won't the police do anything!

How awful!
I think you should get the media involved, that's always a great way to give the authories a kick in the behind.

I agree about the media, it might help catch or stop the person.
Possible emotionaly disturbed teens or children, even adults reflect agression onto animals. Maybe work with neighbors to keep an eye out.

That is just terrible to hear...makes me freakin sick.

That's horrible. I hope they do something. I agree, get the media involved. Then that should give them a kick in the booty.

Kobster...
I noticed you're in Texas, like myself. Where does your friend live? I'm about an hour n.w. of Houston. Where is Lewisville anyway? I've never heard of it

That is so sick and perverted! I wish they would get the same treatment they are doing to those poor innocent cats! I'm in TX also. Get the media involved! They are always showing such acts on the news here locally so I know it works! I'm sooo very sorry about your kitty..

How horrible!

Run your own PR campaign... get the media involved, put up flyers all over town warning people of this guy and to KEEP CATS INSIDE at least temporarily (if he can't get his (or her, I suppose) hands on the cats, he can't hurt anymore until they catch him).

You would be surprised that sometimes these people are simply very very very ill and can still feel remorse.

I hope all the kitties stay safe!

According to this map, Lewisville is about 30 minutes north-west of Dallas.

The other thing to think about is that who finds fun in mutilating cats often don't stop at cats. Serial killers and people like that generally start out torturing animals. Keep your kids close as well....

Thats really frightening. I remember when I was living in Colorado, about 6 years ago. There was a very similar killer of cats in Aurora. He also disembowled them. They were warning people to keep their cats inside.

These type of people are very sick and turn into serial killers. They start with innocent little animals and move on to human beings.

Oh my god how could anyone do that?? I've gone off my food now

Whoever it is deserves to have that done to him/her

That's some seriously twisted stuff, there.

Animal torture is an indication of criminal/sociopathic/serial killer-behavior...there could be more to this than meets the eye. Awful.
post #13 of 27
What a horrible, sick individual, and yes a serial killer in the making if not already.
RIP poor kitties!
Please let everyone you know in the area to keep their cats inside.
Sending mega "stay safe" vibes for all the kitties in the area.

My heart is breaking...

I just can't fathom doing something like that to a innocent little cat or any animal for that matter!

I agree with everyone so far...it's a definite sign of a sadistic sociopath/psychopath. It's terrifying when you think about it...

You've got to get the story out there, make everyone aware of what's going on. If this psycho sees that the whole town is on the look out, hopefully they'll stop!

There are for sure wackos out there in the world. But I just contacted a friend of mine in Lewisville and this is not happening in that area at least. I am not saying it isn't happening, just that there needs to be more clarification as to where this is happening, before anyone can attempt to do anything.
post #17 of 27
That's such a horrible thing to do. Hopefully everyone will hear about this and keep thier cats inside. Hopefully this creep is caught before he kills again.

Its happening in Lake Dallas, just north of Lewisville, just south of Denton. I don't live in Lewisville anymore, but I will tell my friend what you said about contacting the media.

I am amazed by the horrible things people can do. Thats aweful!!!!

That is one of the three main behavoirs for a future serial killer. 1) Animal abuse 2) Wetting the bed 3) facination with fire.

I would definatly notify the media. If this person starts to progress, children and people could be at risk. Not to mention any other poor kitties in the neighborhood. I wold also post flyers so that anyone in the area who's cat goes outside knows that this is going on.
post #21 of 27
I'm also going to have to agree with everyone here! Its absolutely
disgusting that theres someone out there that takes their anger or gets off on killing poor animals. I would deffinatley get the media involed, post signs and stuff around warning people to keep their cats inside. Also on the signs you should put this catsite so people who have had there poor babies missing or murdered can come here to get the support that they need!! I hope this person is caught!!! What goes around comes around!!

Just for everyone's benefit, I am posting an update. A reporter friend of mine did some research on this topic, because it is a distressing topic. After the proper authorities were contacted it was discovered that this happened back in 2005 it was always concerning orange kitties, and it is suspected that a kid is behind the mutilations. They ran lots of articles to make the public aware that this is going on, offered a reward for information leading to the arrest of the sicko doing this, but no real leads resulted.

They are highly concerned about this crime against these cats, they are on top of any disappearance reported of pet cats. So unless this was a recent killing, looks like the abuser went underground or moved.
post #23 of 27
Well I'm sorta hesitant to say I'm ''glad'' it isn't anything current...I know none of us would be glad no matter when it did happen, even if it was years ago....But...whew!...let's just hope he's gone underground and stays there...like the 'underground-dwelling-creature that he is (for lack of a better word, mainly cuz I can't think of one y'all )

Thanks for the update

I think some mentally ill madman is involved.Probably escaped from an asylum or such. A normal human mind can't think thoughts as horrible and brutal as that. You should contact authorities. Madman or not he/she should be sentenced in jail for life. Doctors should keep their patients under better observation... Still can't believe someone could do that to a cat.Phsycho.

That is just sick and wrong.
Tell your friend to also put an ad on craigslist.org in the pets section. People are always giving away their cats for free. I highly doubt someone who is just triing to find a better home for their kitty would want to give it to this guy. I read about pet preditors all the time in the pet section here.

Got an email back from my friend (I wrote her about notifying the media) turns out this happened about two years go (so she doubts anyone would report on it, haha). I moved from Texas in 2004 and hadn't heard from her since then. She looked me up on MySpace a few weeks ago. WHen we talked on Yahoo voice Taz was the last thing she told me so I assumed it had just happened. Sorry, didn't mean to ruffle any fur.

Taz was a special kitty. He was a classic hairbrained orange cat. When he was a year old, he had to have emergency surgery to remove two coins from his gut that he had swallowed (why, we may never know). Run free at the rainbow bridge Tazman.

They never caught the guy, I hope he doesn't turn up somewhere murdering children.
