In Florida, Jason Alkire, 26, is accused of killing his cat and then skinning it in an effort to create a memorial. Police insist that the cat did not have nine lives, but Alkire allegedly had almost as many lies to explain why he was caught with a pocket knife skinning a house cat.
Police state that Alkire first said that the cat died by natural causes. Later he admitted that he killed the cat by throwing it against a dresser after it scratched him. Later he said that the cat had not scratched him and that he had drowned the cat. That is the account the police decided to go with and booked him on a single count of cruelty to animals. Bail was set at $5,000.
