    Teen who Allegedly Mutilated 19 Cats Fits Profile of Sociopath, Detective Says A south Florida teenager accused of killing more than a dozen cats fits the profile of a sociopath and responded with laughter when police first spoke to him about the cat deaths, a detective said in an affidavit released Monday. The 10-page affidavit notes that Miami-Dade County detectives used an electronic device to track 18-year-old Tyler Hayes Weinman's car and traced his cell phone before charging him with the macabre crimes. The tracking device showed the car had stopped near places where at least two dead cats were...

    BOSTON -- The beating death of a cat in front of shocked children prompted protests Sunday in Worcester. A group of people gathered in front of the city police department, demanding police put Tom Foley behind bars. Foley admittedly beat a cat named Lily to death in front of several children on Friday. The owner, Lisa Tuttle, said her cat Lily had just given birth to a litter of kittens and may have been feeling territorial when she charged Foley's dog and scratched Foley several days earlier on Dupuis Avenue. "I just came out. I saw the cat in a...

    Frist's Cat Problem Tennessean columnist Gail Kerr notes that Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN) "fessed up in his 1989 book, Transplant, to adopting cats from shelters when he was in medical school, treating them like pets for a while, and then using them in his research experiments." The subject also came up in the 1994 Senate GOP primary. "It was a short-lived local story that briefly flared in the national press. Yes, what Frist did was odd and rather icky, but he also saved a lot of lives as a heart surgeon. The kitty killer charges were widely dismissed, and Frist...

    VISTA, Calif. -- A cat shot by two arrows in Vista has died. This is the second case of someone piercing local cats apparently for fun, 10News reported. Bill was a 3-year-old cat fighting to survive wounds left by two metal arrows shot into his body. It was a vicious prank that infuriates his caretakers. "I'd like to think of myself as a gentle person, but if I had a bow and arrow and saw the person who did this, I don't know how gentle I'd be," said Dr. Laura Stokking, a veterinarian. It happened in Vista probably a few...

    Yet another reason to hate cats: It now appears that felines may spread bird flu. In Germany, Austria, and even France, cats are being ditched left and right for that very reason. And we don't mind one bit. We're not fans of cats. At all. Not even the annoying over-rated Andrew Lloyd Webber kind. They're as annoying as the real thing. Dogs may be man's best friend. But cats are a complete waste of space and money. A dog will bark when an intruder approaches your home or, worse, breaks in. On the other hand, cats, instead of being loyal,...
