ALBANY — A 22-year-old city man is under arrest for drowning a cat in his bathtub and then attempting to set it on fire.

Police Officer Kevin Paul was on routine patrol Sunday at about 6 p.m. when he spotted a small fire in a vacant lot on Yates Street.

The officer went to investigate and saw Caleb Capen, of 1156 Madison Ave., standing near the intentionally-set fire with a dead cat inside paper and plastic bags.

While being questioned by detectives, Capen admitted to grabbing the cat by its back legs and holding it underwater until it stopped breathing because it wouldn’t get along with his other two cats.

Torture and mutilation of small animals is one of the first signs of a sociopath.

Asher.

Nectar.

Animal abuse survivors. Glad for them to be taken away from their abusive former owner.

...yep...we’re going to hear more about this guy in the future...unfortunately, they’re rarely shot and killed promptly, but manage to operate for a while before they’re detected.

True, in the sense that nearly all serial killers started out as animal abusers.

Have you ever contemplated abusing an animal (e.g. a cat) for personal entertainment, but refrained from doing so?

I have 2 black kitties that drive me bonkers. I’ve scruffed them and given them a good snip on the nose for eating plants, but I’d never do anything to physically harm them. Some animals need to be trained to stay out of where they don’t belong, but overwhelming violence without concern for the animal’s size is sadistic.

Sick, sick SOB. I hope he can be incarcerated before he starts taking out his aggressions on human beings.

Impale him in the public square, and leave his hanging corpse to rot as a warning.

No....”sick” is making jokes about how difficult it is to light a wet cat, or mounting a defense that claims he was simply attempting to douse his cat after it caught on fire......sick, sick, sick.....

I read the headline too fast, at first I thought he was trying to put out a cat that was on fire, need to stop the Evelyn Wwood courses.

This guy has the makings of another Jeffery Dahmer, he started out the same way killing small animals while he was growing up. I agree full frontal lobotomy to correct the impaired thinking process. Or just kill him now.

This guy is beyond sick and will in all likelihood go on to do worse things that could include sadistic murder.

Recently near Sioux Falls, SD a small cat was glued to a highway. While a good Samaritan rescued this cat, it died from its injuries. Our cat's vet treated this poor cat and I was at her office when it was brought in for treatment. I can't imagine anyone being this cruel.

A lot of 3 year olds go thru that phase....then get it spanked out of them. Often, a kid will shoot a song bird with a bee bee gun and feel so remorseful they never do it again.

While all serial killers may have abused animals, not all one time animal abusers become serial killers.

Normally, one would have to toss a dead and wet cat into the dryer for a couple of cycles before one would attempt to set them on fire.....unless they were to douse the corpse (make sure Obama doesnt butcher this word on a teleprompter) in kerosene and setting a match to it. This effect is known as the “tiki cat” syndrome. Normally it happens after the
“Dead Cat Bounce” so the dead cat can be the brightest point of light for Obama and his minions to follow into the depths of socoalism. Nothing worse than the smell of a burning cat.

The White House — A 48-year-old Kenyan man is under arrest for drowning a cat in his bathtub and then attempting to set it on fire.

Police Officer Rue Paul was on routine patrol Sunday at about 6 p.m. when he spotted a small fire in the Rose Garden.

The officer went to investigate and saw B. Hussen-Obama, of 1600 Pensylania Ave., standing near the intentionally-set fire with a dead cat inside paper and plastic bags.

While being questioned by detectives, B.H-Obama admitted to grabbing the cat by its back legs and holding it underwater until it stopped breathing because it wouldn’t get along with his other two catsn named Bush and Cheney.

During the course of the interrogation, Osama admitted to striking the other cats with a metal wrench as well as kicking them, squeezing them excessively and stepping on them, according to his private civilian police force.

The other two cats were removed to an emergency clinic in Washington where it was determined they had fractured bones consistent with the abuse Sotero admitted to.

He stands charged with aggravated animal cruelty under the state penal law, better known as Bushes’s Law, and torturing animals under the state Agriculture and Market Law. More charges are pending.

He was arraigned in a Guantanamo Court this morning

Yep, he’s practicing for the big time. His defenseless cats were just “trial runs.”

ASPC is very careful who adopts black cats because the young moronic satanists and wannabee satanists like to kill them in satanic rituals

This mental reject looks like he’s a dabbler in it
