A woman in Texas made one thing very clear on Tuesday morning – don’t mess with her cats.
42-year-old Audrey Deen Miller shot her husband in the stomach after he threatened to shoot one of her beloved pets, according to deputy constables.
Miller was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Deputies said Miller and her husband were arguing at their home in Spring at around 7:30 a.m. when he threatened to shoot her cat with a pellet gun.
Miller, an animal lover with several cats and dogs, pulled out a .40-calibre semi-automatic handgun and shot her husband in the stomach.
“The husband was trying to do something to the cat and the wife was just trying to protect her cat,” said Assistant Chief Mark Herman.
Miller was arrested at the scene and her husband was transported tohospital in stable condition.
