(scroll down for video) A woman seemed to have loved her cat more than she loved her husband.
The 56-year-old woman claimed she was protecting her cat from her husband who disliked the cat, when she stabbed her husband to death, according to press reports in Russia.
The woman, who lives in Siberia has been charged with murdering her husband over a cat she had previously adopted.
The couple, who lived in the Zakamensky district in East Siberia’s Republic of Buryatia, had been drinking at home to the point of intoxication when the tragic incident occurred, according to local press reports.
The woman claims that her husband started chasing the cat and wanted to hurt the cat. The woman saw the need to protect the cat.
She allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed her husband three times in the chest. The man had died at the scene.
The woman is under investigation and is scheduled to undergo a psychological examination. She faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of murder.
This is not the first time a woman harmed her husband over her cat. 42-year-old Audrey Deen Miller, from Texas, shot her husband after the couple allegedly got into an argument.
While arguing, the husband allegedly threatened to harm the cat. That is when she shot him.
The husband was rushed to the hospital where he was treated and released, while the wife was booked into jail.
