ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. —

A St. Petersburg man was arrested and charged with four counts of animal cruelty and one count of battery after a visitor at his home found four kittens in the freezer, police said.

One of the kittens was dead when deputies arrived at the home late Sunday afternoon.

Deputies said Rodney J. Blanchard, 49, asked a visitor at his home to get him a beer out of the freezer.

When the visitor went to the freezer, Blanchard told her that there were kittens inside of it, deputies said. According to deputies, the visitor tried to get them out of the freezer, but Blanchard pushed her out of the way.

The visitor left Blanchard's home and called the sheriff's office.

When deputies approached the freezer, they heard cats "meow," and they found the kittens inside individual sandwich bags on the bottom shelf, authorities said.

A white calico cat was dead. Three others were alive, but they were shaking and covered with fleas.

They were taken to the Emergency Care Center At Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists in Largo, and they are now in the care of the SPCA.

Someone should stick that POS in a freezer for a while and see how he likes it.

Make sure he’s naked. The kittens didn’t have any clothes on, after all.

Based on the preponderance of crimes being reported in the state of Florida, why would anyone decide to move there?

What a sociopathic creep! My heart breaks for those kittens. Thank goodness they were able to save all but the poor white calico. How about he be covered with fleas and stuck in a freezer?

Why waist good kittens by killing them in a freezer? They make excellent bait for shark fishing or snake food.

There is no punishment on this earth that is enough for someone who abuses animals and children. And not necessarily in that order.

To keep them fresh until he could go fishing, of course. [just kidding]

"Typical characteristics of serial killers include:

Generally being described as possessing IQs in the "bright normal" range,[6][19] although they are more likely to have low/average intelligence.[19] A sample of 174 IQs of serial killers had a median IQ of 93. Only serial killers who used bombs had an average IQ above the population mean.[20] Often, they have trouble staying employed and tend to work in menial jobs. The FBI, however, states, "Serial murderers often seem normal; have families and/or a steady job."[13] Other sources state they often come from unstable families.[6]

They were often abused—emotionally, physically and/or sexually—by a family member.[6]

Fetishism, partialism, and necrophilia, are paraphilias which involve a strong tendency to experience the object of erotic interest almost as if it were a physical representation of the symbolized body. Individuals engage in paraphilias which are organized along a continuum; participating in varying levels of fantasy perhaps by focusing on body parts (partialism), symbolic objects which serve as physical extensions of the body (fetishism), or the anatomical physicality of the human body; specifically regarding its inner parts and sexual organs (one example being necrophilia).[21] A disproportionate number exhibit one, two, or all three of the Macdonald triad (see below) of predictors of psychopathy:

Many are fascinated with fire setting.[6]

They are involved in sadistic activity; especially in children who have not reached sexual maturity, this activity may take the form of torturing animals…"[6]

Guy picks the parrot he wants from the pet shop. Shop owner says - Oh no, you don’t want that one! He was owned by a pirate and he has a filthy mouth... cusses up a blue streak!

Guy says “Its cool - that is the one I want.”

Guy gets home, and after awhile, sure enough, the parrot starts cussing. Guy grabs parrot and stuffs him in the freezer.

Comes back 1/2 hour later and asks the parrot what he has to say for himself. Parrot says “I am so sorry sir. I cannot believe the language that came out of my beak. I apologize profusely, and it will never happen again... And by the way, what exactly did the turkey do?”

Sharks don't eat kittens. They eat squid, mackerel and humans.

Actually they like small yip yap dogs with rhinestone
collars if trolled at the right speed.

The flash of the rhinestones brings them up from
the depths.

A friend of mine kept his dead cat in the freezer but
it was already dead. He was saving it to use in an art
project.

You may be kidding but that is precisely why these kittens were in the refrigerator.

My cousin used to run charter fishing out of Ft. Myers and he told me that what these low life scum do is catch abandoned kittens and puppies and put them in the fridge to let them die. By the next day, they've either suffocated or frozen to death but they're still fresh for using as bait...........

What a POS. She was probably very lucky to get out of his house alive.

I hope Blanchard meets someone in prison who weighs about 320 pounds, is ten times crazier and sick than Blanchard himself, and has about as much regard for Blanchard's life as Blanchard would have for a fly.

Yea. That’s what he told you...that it was already dead. An art project? What? Did they have a dead cat display down at the local museum? I’d keep an eye on that guy if I were you....

Actually in ancient Egypt, there was a cat goddess, Bastet, where she would come after you in the afterlife if you intentionally harmed a cat/kitten. Bastet was a human female with a cat’s head.

So, Let me get this straight. You have a “friend”. He is an artist of some sort. He keeps dead cats and pigs in his freezer. To make some kind of art. Uh huh.

Can you make money at this or is it more of a hobby?

It’s more of a life long avocation.
He’s very cutting edge.
The SPCA did get a little excited over the
pig art though.
He actually started a church but was frightened
by the power it unleashed.
Church of the Future tm.
As an ordained minister, I know the meaning of
“A hand shake and a piece of the pie.”
It wasn’t for just everyone, but it’s surprizing
how many people would come up and say,
“Tell us what to believe!” You could almost
say they were democrats.
Our sacred wafers really worked, nothing ersatz
about THEM.

Oh, the pigs weren’t dead they were very much alive.
He had constructed this sort of ark about thirty feet
long and had steel plates set in the deck connected
to a sequencer and a cattle transformer.
The idea was the pigs would be turned loose and the
sequence of shocks from the plates would make the
pigs run fore and aft and the whole thing would rock
to musical accompaniment.

Someone complained to the SPCA and they shut down the
exhibit, too bad it would have been rockin.

He was ahead of his time.

This is the first time I’ve ever read through a kitty-ping thread and wished I hadn’t. The subject of the article was sad enough, but the contributions from ‘tet68’ and ‘tired&retired’ were so off-putting I’m closing down the computer to get away from it.
Disgusting, the pair of you.

I agree. All tet68 and tired&retired proved is that they have the brains and sensitivity of a pile of diseased mucus. As for the sub-human who subjected these cat babies to this, I’d like to take a dozen rusty skewers and stick them in various places around his abdomen, avoiding major organs. And then just to take his mind off the pain, apply some napalm to his family jewels and ignite it. Finally, take the mess created and stake it out near a fire ant nest. This should give him ample time to reflect upon the concept of cruelty.
