Texas Vet Posts Shocking Facebook Photo of Cat She Shot as Her 'First Bow Kill'

A Texas woman was so proud of her "first bow kill" that she posted a photo of herself on Facebook with her prey – an orange and white cat dangling by his head from an arrow the smiling woman holds in her hands.

Even more shocking, the smiling woman in the photo is a veterinarian, and the cat she killed might have been her neighbors' pet – not a feral cat as she suggested. Dr. Kristen Lindsey's post has set off a storm of controversy, with many demanding that Lindsey be stripped of her vet's license and criminally charged for the cat's death.

Adopt Me! K.D. Wants to Cuddle and Chat with You

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet K.D., a 1-year-old cat currently being fostered through Alley Cat Allies of Bethesda, Maryland.

This sweet and curious girl appeared one day in a feral colony in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She was filthy, emaciated and suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection. After noticing that she was well socialized, the people feeding the cats determined she was not actually feral at all and contacted Alley Cat Allies for help.

After a few days of good food, solid sleep, vet trips and lots of TLC, K.D. was feeling much better.

"She is a very active kitty who loves attention and is very chatty," reads her Petfinder bio. "She has spent her foster time taking care of two foster kittens, and likes the company of people and other cats."

Kitten Survives 16 Day Journey in Shipping Container

If you have to spend 16 days trapped in an overseas shipping container, this is how you should do it.

An 8-month-old kitten named Sinbad survived for that long in a container full of luxury linens that hailed from Egypt and made its final stop in Hereford, England.

The cat, named for Sinbad the sailor, hopped on the container on March 8 and was discovered by workers 16 days later when he was unloaded in Moreton-on-Lugg.

"I think he gave the [truck] driver and the staff at Mediterranean Linens quite a shock when they found him back in Hereford! They called the RSPCA and we obviously came out to rescue him," Pippa Boyd, an inspector for the RSPCA, said in a statement on their website.
