Florida Man Faces Felony For Intentionally Stepping On, And Killing, Woman’s Crying Kitten

OKALOOSA COUNTY, FLORIDA – A Florida man is accused of an egregious act of animal cruelty which claimed the life of an innocent kitten in late November. According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) 40-year old James Thomas Miller intentionally stepped on a woman’s kitten because it was crying.

In a news release, the authorities stated:

A Fort Walton Beach man is charged with stepping on a woman’s new kitten and killing it because he “was unhappy with it.”

According to the OCSO release, the woman told the authorities that on November 24, Miller told her that he was going to kill her kitten because it “kept crying.”

The release details what the woman said happened next:

She says she later heard a loud noise coming from upstairs and went to see what it was. She says Miller said “What did I do?” and she saw the kitten was severely injured and having convulsions.

OCSO deputies say Miller intentionally, forcefully, and unnecessarily killed the kitten, which results in a third-degree felony charge of animal cruelty.

Please add your name to the petition today. What James Thomas Miller is accused of doing is horrific and we need your help to ensure that he gets the maximum sentence for his crime. A slap-on-the-wrist plea deal is not good enough and we want the court to know that this kitten’s life mattered, and what Miller did is inexcusable!

14,704Anonymous This breaks my heart when I hear about innocent animals being abused and killed. This was a baby kitten and it was crying because that’s what babies do or it was scared of this guy. Women who are in abusive relationships need to take themselves, their kids and animals out of there and never look back. I want this man to get the maximum sentence and never be released until he suffers in prison. Jan 19, 2022
