According to an arrest affidavit, a Metro Animal Care and Control Officer responded to a call to have a talk with Timothy Martel about a cat bite he had received.
Martel reportedly explained he has anger issues and his cat had been hiding from him.
In response, Martel went on to explain that he then drowned the cat in a bathtub. He also reportedly kept the deceased cat in a bag and showed it to the animal control officer.
The cat’s body was immediately taken to the Kord Diagnostic Laboratory for a necropsy.
Martel is now charged with aggravated animal cruelty. His bond is set at $35,000 and he is due in court on Thursday.
